Quick Update

  • Izz’s first day of school went fine :) the highlight of her day was apparently the chocolate pudding she had after lunch
  • I’m on day 3 of Sugar Free September 2014 and apart from some odd cravings on the 1st, which I think were hormone-driven, I’m doing fine
  • I’ve gained a new geek t-shirt, by thieving it from Gaz ;)

Recycling Geek T-Shirts

Some of my geek t-shirt collection are in the region of 4 years old now, and as nature (and pregnancy) blessed me with an ever increasing chest size, they’re now fairly tight (bordering on obscene). I’d like to find some way to recycle them so I continue to get use and don’t have to worry… read full entry »

T-Shirts I Really Really Want

Due to the unfavourable exchange rate I’ve not bought a geek t-shirt in… quite a while. I try not to think about it too hard, else I might weep. To save myself the time and frustration of having to re-search (not research) for funny t-shirts next time I have money and no pending bills, I’ve… read full entry »

rev.iew.me Geek Tee Contest

Those of you who missed out a couple of years ago when I gave a geek t-shirt (courtesy of syswear) away in my blog, might want to read on… I’ve teamed up with syswear again, only this time we’re offering a free geek t-shirt in the latest rev.iew.me contest.

Hex’s Free Geek T-shirt

I received an e-mail from Andrew over at Force 18 a couple of days ago (the 11th) complimenting my geek t-shirt collection, offering to send me a free t-shirt. It’s a great marketing ‘trick’, because not only will I now be aware of the website and quite feasibly buy from it in the future, but… read full entry »

Your Ringtone Sucks

Last Friday I went up to my local town centre. I’ve mentioned it before; it’s “chav capital”, full of teenage mums and truanting children. Not the most inspiring of places really. Anyway, it was a short trip so that I could spoil myself and buy all of the things I wanted for my birthday but… read full entry »

The IT Crowd

One of my t-shirts was on the IT Crowd tonight. Now I look like some lameass copier. :'(

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

Nan turned 25 yesterday. She felt sad because it’s “half way to 50”, so I tried to cheer her up… I’m guessing it worked to some degree because she posted a beautiful entry today on all of the things she has to be thankful for in her life. Of course, this got me thinking about… read full entry »

T-shirt Slogan Could Mean Fine

As someone who has ‘invested’ money into a range of t-shirts with a variety of slogans, I was somewhat disturbed to read this today: A man spotted wearing a T-shirt bearing an “offensive” slogan in a city centre has been warned he risks an £80 fine if he is caught again. […] The slogan on… read full entry »

And The Winner Is…

You’ll be pleased to know that I have calculated a winner! I used the power of mighty MySQL to pull all names from the comments table, group by email (to eradicate duplicates) remove those who could not/did not want to enter and randomise the results. Everyone was assigned a number and I save the output… read full entry »
