Just sent in my recommendations to thatrobert for bestlosers. I had trouble keeping it down to ELEVEN so he won't be able to use them all! I'm copying it here, for your amusement. (If you don't see your shirt here, and I said I like it, I DO. There were SO many shirts I liked this week.....)
"HOLY CANNOLI! Lots of good stuff this week. And Lots of shirts I want to buy that won’t print. Sigh.
Special mention to redghia69 for THIS SHIRT. Thank you for bringing a new style to the derby. It’s fogging, it will probably print, but it gets the Picasso Lives! Trophy.
The Spencer Tracy Commendation goes to Awkward Ninja Dinner, by Xzanthis. Gives a whole new meaning to "Guess who's coming to dinner?"
The Better Late than Never Award to Sachmoe84 for Comfy at Home. That “angel” is looking for something. I’d watch out!
Best Red Shirt to ChrisRisse’s Why Witches Don’t Go on Vacations. Such a delicious piece of work, but apparently too sweet for the voters.
Red Shirt Mentions to Happy Lucky Kitty by rglee129 and Home sweet home by toe2254.
The Stephen King Prize goes to Gravity JMB’s Honey I’m Home. All families deserve an excellent breadwinner.
The Constellation Flexible Suit Contract Award goes to Zenne for Home is where you make it. This suit is much better than the suits built for previous space programs because the gloves are flexible enough to allow knitting, and you don’t have to worry about the points damaging the fabric.
The Frank Lloyd Wright Innovation in Homes Medal goes to Heart is Where the Home is by SeedUvPain. Excellent detail and a great floor plan!
Best Recycler is the crab in It’s better than nothing! by bkucinsk. Great color and expression in this design.
Daedalusknight gets the Robert Frost American Poetry Prize for his intro to his design, The Long Road Home. The shirt is good too, but that post was evocative of discovery and how the west was traversed. It sent shivers down my spine. If you missed it, here it is :
“You know what it’s like.
You set off on adventure. You head out to the wild parts where nobody goes. You take the chances and you seek the new frontier. You lose yourself and find yourself and you get turned around.
You’re never the same again.
The journey is treacherous and the stakes are high, but you brave the unknown, facing things that the regular folk all shudder to think of. Far out there are sights that bring fear and awe, that are hideous and beautiful (sometimes at the same time). The risks are great but the rewards are greater.
You wouldn’t have it any other way.
Then, finally, when you’ve done what can be done, you start back on the long road home. You thought you might never return... but there, in the distance, is the place where you hang your hat. There you will find comfort and ease, relief and rejuvenation. The road may have been long and winding... dusty, dry, and all kinds of crazy... but you’ve made it back now.
You’ve made it back home.”
