T-shirt Challenge Revisited

A while back I decided, since I have way too many t-shirts (over 100), I would wear all of them without repeating, and photograph each one. I didn’t get too far into the project before photographing all of them became too much to keep up with. I’ve still be cycling through them, and I have 36 left to wear. But it’s obvious I don’t need all of them, and it’s also obvious that many people will be in desperate need of clothes soon. So I’m going to sort out most of them and give them away, as soon as charities start accepting donations of clothes for Katrina victims.

I haven’t located a place yet (most, like the Red Cross are really in need of cash donations, which we did this week) but I’m sure that will come soon.

Long-delayed t-shirt blogging

I started out with such great intentions. I was so determined. I as going to take a picture every day, and blog it right away. How quickly I got sidetracked. Curse you, real life! How dare you get in the way of my silly website projects?

Well, anyway, here’s the catch-up… see the main photo page for all my shirts in context.

[edit needed: update photos]

June 28, 2005 – One of my three Curious George shirts. Sleeves are too long, but I love it.

June 28, 2005 – fun grey shirt; this looks good on me.

June 30, 2005 – I have six white shirts exactly like this, and a grey, blue and black. I’ll have to try on another to see how they all look.

July 1, 2005 – Beaver Mountain. Hee hee.

July 2, 2005 – Darn it, I need someone else to take pictures.

July 3, 2005 – I love this shirt, but it’s too big, and is getting old. It’s definitely a wear-around-the-house shirt.

July 4, 2005 – One of my standard Old Navy ringer shirts. They look alright.

July 4, 2005 – Another Old Navy. I spilled on the other one, and had to change.

July 5, 2005 – Inexpensive Fruit of the Look I bought for $3 several years ago. This looks okay.

July 6, 2005 – Cool “year of the rooster” shirt I got several years ago. They didn’t have the “year of the monkey, or I would have it instead. Sleeves are too long.

July 7, 2005 – Standard Old Navy ringer shirts.

July 8, 2005 – I’m blogging this! I got this at thinkgeek.com
Okay! Now I’m all caught up.

tshirt blogging; day 4, 5, & 6

[edit needed: update photos]

A really old t-shirt that I love because it has a cool tiger on the front. It’s not really in the wearable pile anymore either, but I’ll try to do something with the logo. Why do I keep sticking my hands in my pockets?

A new Old Navy ringer shirt. I like this one because it’s plain, and the sleeves fit better.

My Dinosaurland shirt. I love this one, but the sleeves are too long, so I’m thinking of having them re-sewn to be shorter. I tried not sticking my hands in my pockets for this photo, but clearly that’s not the best pose either. I need to practice in the mirror

We had another hectic weekend. We spent Saturday at Stephanie’s getting her house ready for her surgery, and then took a break and went to see Bewitched in the evening. I liked Nicole Kidman in this movie better than some she’s done in the past. Sunday we visited my mom and saw my nieces Riley and Erika.

This morning, I spent 45 minutes looking for my keys and never found them. They have to be somewhere in the foyer, but I didn’t find them at all. I ended up using my spare set. Very frustrating, especially after I didn’t sleep well.

And last but not least, I’m struggling to get through my book club book; 1912: Wilson, Roosevelt, Taft and Debs -The Election that Changed the Country. I know the first (and second) rule(s) of book club are not to talk about the book before book club, but I can’t help it — this book is damned boring. And it’s especially frustrating since

I’m slogging through it so I can read these far more interesting books:

Freakonomics : A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything
by Steven D. Levitt, Stephen J. Dubner

Everything Bad Is Good for You: How Today’s Popular Culture Is Actually Making Us Smarter
by Steven Johnson

Why Marriage Matters: America, Equality, and Gay People’s Right to Marry
by Evan Wolfson

Emotional Design: Why We Love (or Hate) Everyday Things
by Donald A. Norman

Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell
by Susanna Clarke

June Photos — Stephanie gets a hair cut!

[edit needed: update photos]

I adore her new hair cut. I think it looks amazing. She’s still getting used to it. She donated her long hair to Locks of Love.

[correct link/photos/2005/06.30_june/index.html] Check out my other photos to see my neighbor’s yard sign — the one about Patrice Abduallah, our City-county council representative, who’s not available to speak to his constituents about the Human Rights Ordinance, and who failed to show up to a mandatory Democratic meeting called by Julia Carson.

And then there’s my Day 3 shirt —

Again, the sleeves are too long, and it’s looking pretty faded and worn. Probably time to go in the discard pile, although I love the Easter Island heads.

The Great T-Shirt Challenge: Day 2

I have photos of me wearing this shirt in Germany, back in 1997, so I’ve had it a long time. I haven’t worn this shirt in a while, because I don’t usually wear red; I think the color makes my face look too red. It’s also one of the shirts where the sleeves are too long and the seam where they meet the shirt are too low on my shoulder. So I think this one’s going to go.
