A company has offered to sponsor Aard with 15-30 free printed t-shirts bearing the design of my choice, delivered to a US address. I’d like to accept their offer, and so I need help from my readers.
1. I need a hi-res design to put on the shirt. I only have the blog’s venerable masthead as a lo-res file, and the anonymous artist who made it four years ago doesn’t reply to email on their old address. If you want to submit a design, please write me for info on how to go about it.
2. I need a regular commenter based in the US who is willing to take delivery of the t-shirts and send them on to their destinations on my dollar.
My current idea about how to share the shirts around is to give two each to the people who help with the task as detailed above, ten to the most active commenters of the past year, and then organise a lottery for the remainder among any readers who sign up. (Don’t sign up yet, that comes later.)
Update 22 August: I’ve selected a design by Joseph Hewitt.
And by the way, I’m on Google+ now if you want to follow me there.
I hate that expression. Actually, I’m on Google+ regardless of whether you want to follow me there or not. There’s nothing you can do about it. It’s like the inexplicable Swedish preface to saying something, Jag kan sÃ¤ga att si och sÃ¥, “Well, I can say that blah blah blah”. I always reply “Great, feel free to do so!”. Another logic peeve is “All X are not Y”, when what people really mean is “Not all X are Y”.
LOGIC, PEOPLE! ALWAYS SPEAK IN A MANNER THAT COULD BE PARSED BY A COMPILER! AND FEEL FREE TO USE PARENTHESES TO DELIMIT THE SCOPE OF MODIFIERS AND SUBCLAUSES!
