Evidently her name is "Dancer with a Flat Hat," by Phil Levine. I like "Girl With Flat Hat" better and that's what I've always called her.

I just changed the URL to Previously macrina.etc... (see first post) but I decided I liked girlwithflathat better. The reference is deliberately obscure, but those of you who, like me, spent seven years at the University of Washington traversing the skybridge between Schmitz and Meany Halls, you'll know what I'm talking about. (Well, the skybridge was out of commission when they were renovating Meany during my junior year, but, you know.) I do not often wear hats and those I do wear are decidedly poofy. In fact, I am pursuing a PhD so I can get that really poofy one with the robe and all.

Last Sunday was the annual How Berkeley Can You Be parade. Although I live less than a mile from the parade route, my only experience of HBCYB was walking straight through it on the way back from mass. I didn't see the naked men but later saw pictures on the Internet (it's never the ones you want to be...). Justin and I cannot ever hope to be that Berkeley, at least outside our own home.
