My awesome t-shirt

Did you see my boobies on twitter recently?

No silly, not on show, in my awesome ‘Jem’ logo t-shirt.

I recently had a mail from a chappy called Martin at T Shirt Printing .net asking me if I wanted to review one of their printed tees and I said sure, because (as my oldies will remember) I have a bit of a thing about t-shirts.

I sent him my uber cool logo from Lilian, which will eventually also feature in a cool portfolio layout by the said same designer because she is my go-to chick for snazzy shit, and Martin printed it up on a personlised t-shirt (it might not have been HIM that printed it, obviously, but certainly he did the important talking-to-me stuff). And here it is… here I am in full colour glory:


Shame about that flash though, eh? (And the very visible chicken curry I ate beforehand, mwahaha)

The t-shirt itself is good though. Nice, soft cotton and the print has been washed several times since it arrived in October with no visible damage to the lettering. I asked for an XL and it fits quite snug since washing, coming up a bit smaller than some of the other tees I own, but as you can see there’s plenty of room in there for chicken curries (and the boobies).

Now I just have to chat him up to get a hoodie, because I am getting a bit chilly in just my t-shirts at this time of year. ;)

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 about having wasted money (and I don’t mean by making dusters out of them).

Short of cutting off the sleeves and making a patchwork blanket, I’m at a loss as to what I could do with them. And, if I did decide to make a blanket, what’s the best way to do it? Any blanket crafters out there got suggestions?

T-Shirts I Really Really Want

[img: think globally act within local variable scope]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 decided to make a list. These are the T-Shirts I Really Really Want

  1. Think Globally [img: %20 the final frontier]
  3. Enough Social Interaction
  4. Go away or I will replace you with a very small shell script
  5. %20 The Final Frontier

Hands up if you’re interested in starting a “buy Jem t-shirts” fund… (just kidding) 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 contest. The member who earns the most points (by way of reviewing and/or referrals) between February 5th 00:01AM GMT 2009 and March 5th 00:00AM GMT 2009 will win the t-shirt.

Due to shipping restrictions, this is only open to members from the USA, Canada and Europe, but that’s the majority of the user base anyway.

The current winners are tied at 3 points, so you’ve not got a lot of catching up to do if you want to take part ;)
