Special Edition T-Shirt Friday

With a meeting in Seattle this week, i have had an opportunity to hang out with the coolest powerchair-babe on the internet!  Ms. Silverstar has been a fabulous host/tour guide, showing me the sights of the Seattle waterfront for lunch yesterday!

Since the lights in the blogosphere are still dimmed, with nursemyra off the grid due to a house-move, silverstar suggested a T-Shirt swap Friday!  She got me a great Seattle T — carefully selected to be Mr. Pickles Brown!  And with her anti-establishment bent?  i thought “Alcatraz” might be a good fit!

From there?  Lunch at Ivar’s!  Despite a short battle with a misdirected hunk of bread, we had a lovely lunch on the waterfront where i got to indulge my scallop-lust.  No.  Not like that…  Making a quick visit to the waterfront arcade, i also got to indulge a little carousel-lust!

And for even more fun, i got to meet Ms. Friday, the wonder pup!  She is the most well-behaved diva ever! 

Adorable working-pup!  Hear that, Mr. P?  This dog has a JOB!

Speaking of Divas?  i was hanging with the traveling nerd herd in the lobby of our hipster-cool boutique hotel for happy hour, and was a bit surprised to see none other than Miss Britney Spears being escorted across the lobby.  Being good Trailer Park Rabble, i whipped it out – the camera, you perverts – and snapped a few pics!  Only random thought?  She’s tiny.  Teeny-tiny…

Loves me some hangover sunglasses...

Despite the unexpected celebrity sighting, the highlight of my week – in fact, the highlight of all my recent roadtrips – was a chance to meet silverstar in person!  She’s delightful!  And i really can’t wait for another day of extended lunch-hour hookey!  Today?  She’s taking me to Pikes Place Market and i’m going to do everything i can to get hit in the head with a fish!

T-shirt Friday: Galapagos Style

While banging around in South America, stumbled upon this gem in the airport at San Cristobal, Galapagos.  While my friends were loading up to head to the dock for boarding, i frantically snagged one of these…. with nursemyra in mind!

Happy T-Shirt Friday!  Not sure who else is playing along, but nursemyra is in the game…

Boobies rock.  Fully.

In case you’d like to read more about boobies, here’s a little bit more info.  Like all the critters in the Galapagos, boobies have no fear of man.  Or woman.   Took this shot from about 2 feet away…

Oooh – gnukid has joined in

Breaking news:  Sledpress and Renal Failure have popped in with t-shirt friday moments!

T-Shirt Friday – Breast Cancer Awareness

in keeping with the recent theme of “breast cancer awareness”, here’s my contribution to T-Shirt Friday, around a fun sliver of the blogopolis…  expect there will be a few folks playing along, including nursemyra, silverstar, sylvied and perhaps queen of breast support, olga the traveling bra!  Oh, and though technically not a t-shirt, the lovely dolce has popped a new twist to the game!

 Don't let cancer steal second base...

yesterday’s post has the message.  as for the shirt?  was getting my nails painted last week, and a salesman for “hair saloon” paraphenalia wandered in to deliver hair products and nail polish to the proprietors.  when he whipped out a stack of these, my friends there immediately called me over and said “you gotta have one of these…”.  Four brief nanoseconds later, the deal was sealed!

Still not winning any “Mother of the Year” awards, i snagged The Boy to snap this… it’ll come out in therapy one day…

T-Shirt Friday: Trailer Park Edition

Decided to play along with nursemyra and company on T-shirt Friday today.  Easier than writing on no sleep and adrenaline, and this is one of my all time favorite shirts!

On a visit to Arizona a few years back, i stumbled into a lovely bar out in the desert. Cave Creek, Arizona is home to nothing interesting a couple bars and souvenir shops.  On one side of the street is a bar called The Horny Toad.  Across the way and down a few steps?  Naturally, it’s The Satisfied Frog.

Although now under new, and disputed ownership, The Frog still operates… They have a ridiculous number of fine tequilas on hand, and give you a lovely souvenir t-shirt if you managed to drink your way through the list… 

Rather than see me drink through the list, then beat many innocent strangers into submission, my traveling companion decided to buy me a different souvenir shirt…

i rediscovered this one during my recent move… and although it’s a bit big on me since i dropped the weight, i still love it.  And will add this to my “clothes not to wear on dates” checklist…

whatever it takes...

EDIT:  And the ladies – on three continents and four countries – who are playing along today are nursemyra, silverstar and my uncanny twin sister in South Africa, ms. dolce vita…  And later today, Annie joined the party with a clever “studmuffins-made” shirt!
