Boston & me

i dont have my computer here right now, so im using tims annoying (non-apple) computer, and his photo. of me.. :) in cambridge, photographing the charles and boston in the background. the hat (how you call such a thing? we dutch call it a "muts", here you have such weird names. isnt it called a "beanie"? i think that sounds really weird.. :) ) i bought at H&M, mostly because it was pink, it tends to sit a little weird on my head, as you can see, so i dont wear it much. the perfect photographer's gloves were knit by my friend sylvia, who lives in california, where she probably doesnt need them.... she also knitted me a perfectly-fitting purple hat (beanie?), that i usually wear, but i thought pink fits better with my red snow boots. at least in my world..... one day i show you the boots, i just got them for this winter, but barely had the opportunity to use them so far... :( buuuhhh.

It seems you have ice too in the river? Don't they wear these
"mutsen" in the US, what do they wear than. It is not a bean I think, strange word indeed, to have a "boon" on your head ha,ha.

Good portrait, Tim!

This hat style is also called a "watch cap" and is worn by mariners who fold the bottom so it warms their ears as they stand watch. But a classic watch cap is probably not pink, which I definitely like. I don't think that "beanies" come down so far on your head. If you want to stop calling it that you can probably use that technicality.

interesting! now i know what a "muts" is in polish, french, canadian (also quite weird, the canadian, i have to say).
watch cap is quite long, but it would be fun if they changed colors to pink or purple... :D
and yes, i was thinking of "boon" too, hahahahha!
