Those who know me in RL (real life) know that I have quite a few T-shirts with interesting little expressions on them. At the end of the semester in my Intro to Computer Engineering class many (um, 6?) years ago, someone actually turned to me and said that she would miss my T-shirts.

But as many T-shirts as I have, there are still quite a few expressions I would love to have on a T-shirt. I actually had a custom T made that was suppose to say "WEIRD ... and proud of it...", but the person who made it couldn't remember how to spell "weird", so it came out "WIERD ...and proud of it..." Diana calls it my “wired” shirt. I've considered starting my own line of "wierd" shirts with those expressions I've been looking for printed on them. I could trademark it by making Kip the dot over the "i". Something like this:

All of the T’s would probably be black. Of course, I don’t really know how to go about starting a T-shirt business, especially since I would do it on the side as a hobby-like thing, kind of like this blog. Except there would hopefully be some exchange of funds. But that would mean taxes. Yuck. So, now that I’ve revealed most of my plans for a T-shirt business and how it will never happen, how’s about some of those expressions? Some of them might only work for me, but others might have slightly broader appeal (possibly as many as ten people). Some of them may already exist (I’m not including phrases that I know exist. For most of those, go to ThinkGeek). Some would also need some artwork to go with them, but, as evidenced by Kip, I can’t draw.

Instead of traditions, we have trends. Instead of laws, we have lawsuits. And instead of philosophies, we have T-shirts.

So much for that theory...

Yeah, buddy!
Are we having fun yet?
Are we there yet?

I am pretty sure I'm forgetting some. "Mine, not yours" works better as a sticker than as a t-shirt. At least half of these probably require some explaination. Um... Maybe later.

I'll order these four. No need to worry about taxes; I'll pay you under the table. ;)
