Woot claims its vinegar-scented shirts (new print process) are hippo-safe, saying "We take extra care to make sure our printing process is so safe that you could wrap a baby hippopotamus in a Shirt.Woot shirt and not think twice about it. These new designs are no exception -- hippo-swaddle away!"

Today, the Sunnyvale Public Library. Big, and nice open layout inside, with brick arched open doorways between sections.

Amused me that I was wearing my Deep Sea Reader shirt.

Passed a restaurant called By Th' Bucket Grill and admired their catfish logo.

Because a couple months back they had "Opulence", a Giraffe shirt that makes me think of the cute pretend miniature ones.

Woot, fishes

Woot shirt called Almost Free arrived today and looks rather awesome.

Three fish shirts and counting.

Your Catfish Friend

With luck there may be another fish shirt in my future.

Shirt.Woot's upcoming theme is illustrating poetry, and someone on the forums posted a poem: Your Catfish Friend by Richard Brautigan.

If I were to live my life
in catfish forms
in scaffolds of skin and whiskers
at the bottom of a pond
and you were to come by
one evening
when the moon was shining
down into my dark home
and stand there at the edge
of my affection
and think, "It's beautiful
here by this pond. I wish
somebody loved me,"
I'd love you and be your catfish
friend and drive such lonely
thoughts from your mind
and suddenly you would be
at peace,
and ask yourself, "I wonder
if there are any catfish
in this pond? It seems like
a perfect place for them."

I was excited to see the the unofficial Vancoufur shirt from Kitty Loves Monster.

At the con, their booth in the Dealers Den had some brightly-coloured sticky notes and markers put ready for people to draw things on, with the intent they be used in the design. This was on Saturday.

Of course I drew my fish (and a furry hand grabbing for it).
Furry hand with curved claws grabbing a whiskered fish. Black outline on orange background.
(Pencil and black Sharpie marker on bright orange sticky note.)

Within the shirt design that Kitty Loves Monster did is the monster holding my fish. My deliberately generic clawed furry hand (probably but not necessarily feline) works as a monster hand.

I was thinking of pre-ordering the shirt when I saw the in-progress design a day or two ago, but I'm not nearly so sure about the final one: too many words for my taste. Though "Otters gotta ott!" is something an Otter who was trying to get my fish said to me.

Last Rainfurrest, I did this pencil portrait of a Giraffe with an eartag that shows the same.

I had it printed on to a metal badge by Bedlam Badges and, completing my plan, I clipped on to the ear of my giraffe backpack:

(The shirt behind the Giraffe is the Rainfurrest con shirt, art by the guest of honor TaniDaReal.)

Poptart Cat

In excitement about the Nyan's Dream shirt I have just ordered, I read about Nyan Cat at http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/nyan-cat-pop-tart-cat and am playing Nyanicorn.

The little cat-faced fish remind me of Strawberry Moshi, which I first met as a sheet of rabbity stickers.

TeeFury has an The Hunger Games shirt today that I so almost really like, but for me it's just a little off: I think the Mockingjay's beak is too long and I keep thinking Kingfisher. I do like the postage-stamp-edging and poster look and the layout with details.
