Workwear

More Firefly posts. Boy, this series has got its hooks into me and C. I've been exploring the massive, baroque web-presence of its fan-base. Everything from the familiar (t-shirts, bumper stickers, hats, books) to the delightful (like a box of juggling geese). One particular line, a parting shot uttered by psychotic-but-sweet-ballet-dancer- assassin-in-motorcycle boots River Tam, is funny as hell in the episode. But taken out of context, and printed on 100% cotton, whoa! This must be the ultimate t-shirt to wear to a university lecture or academic seminar. Or a job interview. I must order one immediately!

wear it to a lecture, do it! If you do it, I'll send you the first Hick Chic T shirt as soon as I get around to making one. honest I will!

I want one of these. AND I want a Hick Chic T. Absolutely. No-one will believe it for a second, but that will make me all ironic n' shit.

Right, you're on, Heidi. I'm going to do it! This may destroy my career, but it's worth it. I shall wear one. And -- put me on the list for a Hick Chic t-shirt!

Ironic makes you look smarter, no? ok I'll get dust off my sketch book! (and then rent Firefly...!)

Just read your question on Xtinpore about forcing a student to do unwanted work: It's definitely not a sin so don't worry about hell or anything silly like that. I just hope you can delurk long enough to write some more good stuff!
