Oh my goodness...could I be falling back in love here?

Every design I've seen here mocked up on purple looks amazing. I've got to go through my stacks, but I thought maybe a remix of "Less is More" by Crunchybitesized would be great. One of my favorite shirts.

I've looked through some of my old shirts and I can think of at least half a dozen that would look pretty darned good on the eggplant color. I think the "robot zombies" by Patrickspens would look pretty sweet.


I'd be down for at least one of those.

I will buy ALL* of the purple shirts ALL* OF THEM

* read as: all amusing shirts relevant to my interests within the constraints of my budget.

I'm a huge purple aficionado and would go insane for purpley goodness in T-shirt form. The purple tee doesn't get enough love!

I don't have anything relevant to add, and I'm pulling up a practically dead thread to fan-girl on, but I would love to see some purple shirts and the designs offered up so far would look fabulous on purple. It is my favorite color (my roller derby name centered around 'violet' and my hair has been purple more than a time or two) and I would buy more than I could afford if there was a Purple Plus sale.

If by TP you mean Totally Purple, and by house you mean closet, then yes.

Just hope for woot's sake they make it VERY CLEAR on each page of the Purple PLUS sale that the shirts, especially for women, are sized very differently from the now-normal Reckoning sizes (presuming they are, in fact, the old AA blanks). Otherwise they will be in for a ton of posts/complaints saying "they sent me the wrong shirt...." I think we've learned that simply saying "check the sizing chart" isn't enough.

As long as we are suggesting things. 3D Lion, on any colour background, would make me cry with ecstasy.

That shirt dissolved on me over 3 years ago and I've been looking for it again ever since. It has haunted me for years. Please hear my plea woot gods!!

The cake will be made in Honduras or Nicaragua (or maybe Bangladesh if we aren't paying attention lololololol). It will taste the same as the cake you are used to we promise*. Pay no attention that the top is wider than it really needs to be and the the texture is a little off. Also it cost us less but we are raising the price per piece.

*ladies who enjoyed our previous cake will not be served.

Psst... read the thread. Although tgentry did not promise us AA for the purple sale, the sample colors posted were AA, and Anvil doesn't manufacture purple blanks in the style woot uses - and it's unlikely that woot would pay the premium to special order purple blanks just for this sale; it would make little financial sense.

TGentry did say he was looking at AA... so I'm holding out hope.

I said Thursday night at midnight as that seems to be the way a lot of people think of 'midnight.' Sorry if there's confusion, I just think if I said Friday at midnight people would be coming on Friday night wondering why the sale had already been up 24 hrs. How about be here at 11:59 PM Thursday night.

Sorry if I got your hopes up, but it will be worth it the extra day's wait!

Hope you don't mind - Big Dog is shedding, so they're a little white now. Don't worry, 50% of the dog hair comes off in the washer. At least it's not dog slobber, right?

Woot seems to have some trouble with dates and everyone seems to have trouble with "midnight," so maybe we should start specifying, like "The Reckoning starts Tuesday at midnight as Monday becomes Tuesday." Or "PURPLE PLUS!" starts Thursday at midnight as Thursday becomes Friday."

Well of course there's no slobber! They're just blank AA shirts, "pristine and untouched by cartoon sushi or Mario puns." Or turbunguins.

(Side note: apparently my dog knows how to pick out Ramyb shirts by slobbering on them. I'm not sure I understand how she could tell either.)

Aha...that explains why someone excitedly called last night purple eve.

And indicates I understand woot speak. Worrisome, that!

Worrisome indeed.
I propose all Woot time be expressed as East Coast Time, therefore Friday at 1:00AM.

Why yes, I am on the east coast, why do you ask?

Pember was going off our official internal definition of midnight while I was going with the way I thought would cause less confusion externally. Success! Seriously though, not her fault at all, this 'what is midnight?' thing has cropped up a lot, and while I think we have that pretty solidly figured out within our walls, communicating it clearly is not always easy. Anyway, hope to see you guys back tonight when Purplepalooza kicks off.
