I'm a sucker for the pets. I can't visit an animal shelter without coming home with one, and am happy to support such a cause from a distance with my credit card. My family and I have rescued dogs from shelters and poor home situations since I was a kid, and will never feel like I can give enough back to those who help animals. My little girl (who isn't so little anymore) was adopted at 2 months old from a home that couldn't afford to feed her, or any of her siblings (yet refused to get the mother spayed) once they were weened. I fell in love with her when the Facebook plea from a friend of a friend to take free puppies appeared - and my cat still hates me for it. http://www.flickr.com/photos/34325046@N06/sets/72157624889590463/ Her face can tell you more than I ever could.

Just a bit of a shameless plug for future reference on the cooperative gaming big, Co-optimus.com has a few health vials for anyone interested. Otherwise, man, I wish my friends played board games. They've turned into digital snobs once HDTV's came out. I'm glad to get in a session of D&D once a month or so. I'd love to get them into Arkham Horror for sure.

Do people wonder why the prices of indie PC games, indie music, downloadable books/audiobooks, etc are going up? At this point, the economy isn't just effecting those with crummy 9-5's, all the starving artists are worse off since the people that want to enjoy things will enjoy them without actually paying the price to. Buy your shit, guy-who-Wil-won't-link-to-for-obvious-reasons. Really, stealing is punishable by +5 internet flame...and sometimes jail.

Oh, you. I think this goes a bit beyond one of those freudian slips, into a whole new realm of "Did I just say that?"

This is always a huge struggle for those writers that have full time work, especially with companies (see: Corporations) that refuse to give any down time to jot down notes. I used to write on my lab coat when I'd get ideas in the middle of the night, then have to find a way to get ink out of white cloth. As much as I feel better that I'm not the only one that stares at the wall thinking about things in another mental language, it's unfortunate that many would-be-writers will never make waves. Many of them simply do not have the time to devote to thinking or writing.

Very awesome resources, especially with so many people having a hard time getting /real/ publishers to listen to them. Thanks for sharing!

I couldn't agree more that we size things oddly here, and women need geek shirts, too! (I did forget about the chest-shoulder ratio part, too. I guess that was kind of important!) Again, Nice design Wil!

Well you're certainly no fun. ;)

>That style of T-shirt is shaped differently than men's or generic T-shirts? Girlie tees are definitely cut differently; the sleeves are shorter (much like the difference between the length of mens and womens shorts,) and the mid section is tapered inward. Generic male tee shirts end up looking very boxy on women in general. Also the sizes are insanely different: mens small fits me like a two-person tent, whereas womens small fits just right. Every time I go to my local comic book store, I spend a fair amount of energy kicking and screaming for even a small selection of girlie tees. Maybe if I wear this bad boy (or in this case, girl) in there, they'll understand why. >Just curious, and a brief skim of your blog (and your above comment) indicates that you're not a shy, retiring wallflower. Lol, no, I'm not - I'm sure Wil would love me to get off his blog with this stuff, though - so I will.

This is definitely a close second - Boobs + Dice = a good time to be had by all! ;-)

I adore that design; blending geekisms FTW. I also have to note how awesome it is that this shirt is available in girlie-tees, as that is still a bizarre rarity in most geek clothing (all I've ever wanted is Venom on my boobs!)
