Mine didn't explode, but mine fried, which is why I only use a laptop for designing shirts. It smells like a dirty diaper filled with Indian food. or a turd covered in burnt hair.

Eww... I've smelled diapers that had definite odors, but Indian food isn't one of them thankfully. Although a few looked like curry....

I do not give out awards because I am utterly inept at arty things so it would be inappropriate. Besides, we all know by now that James Cho is my sex bomb and so he automatically wins every time.

I think I have an ear infection. Or meningitis. Frown.

You could be like Adder and be a "critic."

Meningitis has some pretty specific syptoms according to Web MD... my wife makes me look them up whenever she has a bad headache with a cold.

You know I don't speak spanish.

Be grateful you're not a dog. $500 for an ultrasound, only to find out that he's got a bad UTI. great.

Neck pain can be a symptom of Lyme Disease. And I can find a way of saying anything is a sign of Celiac. Uh, I can do that with Lyme, now, too. Chronic-Illness-R-Us here...

After the "fun" last week, I got my own little hater comment this week (my design isn't original because it's based off photos, ignoring that they were my photos). I'm going back to only being positive.

Can we have an "Ovulating? My Goodness! that printed so much better than I thought!" award? I'm pushing for Love of Money - the piggy isn't overpowering and huge, it's just the right size and cute. Awwww. And Shell Competition rocks, so I'm glad I bought a second one.

It's almost 80 degrees here, Neener neener out to catch hermit crabs in my hermit crab shirt after lunch.

Housemate #1 spent thousands and thousands of dollars on his suck-at-life Boxer. Turns out he (the dog) has colitis.
I think they should like...name a wing of that veterinary hospital after him (the housemate).
Housemate was smart, however, and insured his dogs before anything bad ever happened. So I think that helped ease the burden a bit.

Best Late Entry



Skydiving by CGrein is not only the best late entry, it also managed to surpass my beloved Turtle Rage to become my overall favorite entry in the derby.

Please throw some votes at those if you like them, they're currently both ranked well below a hundred votes and I think the skill and wearability of these entries is worth more than that

This is the most we've ever spent on a dog, and it's the last time. He's not getting a check-up ultrasound, sorry buddy, but I need to pay rent & buy groceries. I'm thinking about looking into pet insurance, though.

My uncle and his wife have spent tens of thousands of dollars keeping their cat alive. I'm sorry, but IV fluid drips on a cat seems extreme. We did the u/s to find out what the problem was, from here on out he's gonna take his vitamins & his antibiotics and go be healthy. feh.

I always swore I wouldn't be one of THOSE people who valued their pets more than anything else. Eeeep.

Hey, I'll have to morph the next derby topic into an image of one of my dogs. That way I can afford more vet care. ;) Can stick figure dogs win derbies?

I like that entry out of the many skydiving with small planes in them entries too. But here's what happens when rhinos fly in the air. Note: NSFW and has some violence/ much scatological humor.

Best Water/beacn Design

I'm not including Cho's Wave, though I love it, as that is clearly well-appreciated.

It's a TIE! klswoot's two entries show the joy of water & beachy goodness, and a really great range for a designer. After seeing her swirlies on other shirts (love the swirlies on the koi!), it is fabulous to see two shirts that I wouldn't have guessed were by the same designer, and yet I love them both. I've influenced my little family-voting-pack to vote for them, and encourage you to vote, too.


Sail Away With Me



Beachbound Vespa Dog


(Note, any rumors about me voting for the Beachbound Vespa Dog because I just came back from the beach with my dogs on my blue scooter might be exaggerated. Plus, my dogs have pointy up ears. And my scooter isn't a Vespa. No sailboats were spotted today, though, only canoes and kayaks)

I love all her designs! She's so talented and so oriented toward the family (PG) mindset, and especially toward what women want to wear. She's one of the best here, in my opinion.

My boston didn't have insurance and cost us thousands to find out he simply has epilepsy (apparently fairly common in dogs but was misdiagnosed at first), allergies, and a strangely shaped kidney (apparently fairly common in bostons). We bought the goldendoodle hoping to avoid health issues with dog #2 and it has worked out excellently. The boston is sooo cute though. He is a pseudo-celebpuppy since he was on www.ihasahotdog.com:

Oh, he's so cute! Awwww... I've been seeing a lot of listings for Boston/cattledog mixes. The mind boggles.

We chose Australian Cattle Dogs because they are hardy, sturdy, and don't require much grooming. Plus, they keep the kids in line. The problem is that they don't actually give you any indication that they are sick or hurting. Ah well.

I've heard a lot of good things about golden doodles - I'm betting they're less nippy than cattledogs!

In other dog-related derby stuff, I don't quite believe this, but I'm agreeing with peppersagooddog.

I'm really curious about which entries will be printed this week; the in and out of the fog is making me think tie, but probably tie for 4th. I've been banned from buying anything, so I'll have to cheer from the sidelines.

I noticed that too. Hunh. It'll be interesting to see if things change - maybe their machinery is being updated? Or maybe people are learning? I'm new here, but I read all the information posted before entering a design. Why would people ignore the basic directions for entering the derby?

As for the numbers, we are 1-2% of our library's circulation, but the librarians always think we're saying 10%. Nope. But still a decent number. 1% of accepted submissions is a lot higher than most people have! Of my book reviews, 1% of the reviews are quoted in a published book. Hey, that's still higher than most people can say!
