when you see designs that shouldn't win, or people arguing over design.... it seriously made me walk away from my computer last night. Heck, I never even knew what the shirt of the day was until I got to work this morning.

And I like the forum better than the chat. The chat doesn't list post times so I can't tell if what I'm reading is from two minutes ago or last night and people post there so rapidly and with such nonsense it's hard to have any kind of conversation. I quit chats a long time ago because of that. It's also easier to keep up here. Yay.

And now for food. I haven't had anything today. Oooops. >_<;

These past couple days have been rough, yeah. Really the past couple weeks. I hope this starts to heal.

The daily is cute. Certainly not my thing--the only shirt I have that has bones on it has a few in the shape of a heart (Halloween shirt) and it was given to me by my boyfriend.

you can probably set up the chat that way (and if so, cho would be the only person to do so)

as for food, I'm having a wrap with Roast Beef, Cheddar, Sauteed portabello mushrooms all sliced up, and a cilantro-lime mayo... yum!!

How am I holding up? I'm not too worried about it. Believers will believe and other won't. If I ever want to win I'm going to have to deal with it then too. And if I ever want to have a daily printed I'm going to have to deal with the people talking about how it's the worst shirt they've ever seen, yadda yadda. Call it practice. ^_~

Thanks for asking though. ^_^ And yeah, I figure they'd have rejected it after all that if it was going to be. Maybe not, but I suspect it would've been.

And congrats on the win. I'm stll deciding if I want it or not. This is good for you because if I can't decide it means I'll be buying after the first day. ^_~

Trust me, I know how it feels... if you were around for the Celebrate the day contest, I was the poor sap who submitted the Feb 30th -1 design that got vilified by many people, but somehow almost came in second or third. In your case, the funny thing is that if it was you that took the picture (hundreds of people probably did at the time), this whole argument would be mostly moot.

Thanks for the congrats, but I haven't won yet! The post-it design is making a serious last day push... my design is cute, and isn't everyone's cup of tea. So it goes. But anyone who knows me knows it fits- I have a webcam on my goldfish tank...

I think it's harder to deal with it here because 90% of the time we're dealing with people who either make it to the top with poorly executed designs, or they're out right stealing. I wubble it when people call my work childish all the time... I work hard on it, I'm doing different applications... I'd at least like to think I'm expanding my horizon.

Interesting...


In Hamtramck, an enclave in Detroit,there is an annual Paczki-Day (cherubic Tuesday) Parade, and lines at bakeries can be seen up to 24 hours before the deep-fried delights go on sale Tuesday morning. Many bars in town open early in the morning, and provide free entertainment, a party atmosphere, Paczki-clad mascots, and at at least one bar, Pączki filled with Jagermeister.

Yep. I'm from Michigan. Never went to the Hamtramck stuf though. For anyone wondering how to say it... Ham-tram-ic.

PS - I was incorrect. Paczki is plural. I forget how to spell it singularly.

I am going to get it printed now that it's free from Woot's control (despite it was 4-5 votes from second, they decided to pass on it for the best of the losers contest). Just got to get around to setting up a Spreadshirt account. Need to do it quick to get in on the Feb 29th feasting.

I like the shirt. If rats could see better, it would drive Splinter crazy. He loves those pockets. Head out one end, tail out the other.
Odds are good I'll buy it.
But...
I wasn't voting for it because I didn't want to knock pocketfish out of the fog.
But....
Now I went back to read the comments on the shirt and people (person who's name starts with b) were going out of their way to be nasty about the shirt (which is why I don't mod shirt). Why? Because people like it? The idea is simple and cute? Because when artist get nasty, they get really nasty?

So
I just voted for it. If you take 3rd and the fish is 4th by just a few votes, I'll be really mad!

WE LURV YOU TOO! Dork!!!

I avoided it by avoiding the shirt boards. Can't get peeved or react badly to what someone said if you never read it. Plus I bet ignoring it made all the haters lose their minds.

My departmental committee gave me 3 thumbs up for promotion to Associate Professor. Waiting to hear from the college committee. Then it goes to the dean, then the provost, then the president/board of trustees. If the college gives it a go, I should be clear sailing the rest of the way. Prolly won't hear back from all levels until May.

The box of Somoas that we have here is my husbands and I don't think he'd take it very well if it went missing. He's lucky he didn't want me to save a box of the Thin Mints because those have no chance of surviving long enough for him to get any.

You got my vote a long time ago, so I can't help you anymore in that department. Sorry.
