365 T-shirts - the reasoning

This blog should be sub-titled: a journal of my life in geek.

I get my geek on with things about which I am geeky: comic books, Baseball, Ultimate, science fiction, my favorite bands, books I have read and loved, and Jungian psychology to name some of the most frequently traversed subjects.

I began this project simply as a way to count my T-shirts. I own a lot of T-shirts. But how many do I have? Do I have 365? We shall find out.

When I started this blog, I thought about how each T-shirt means something to me. I bought it for a reason, after all. I set myself the task to post an entry about a new T-shirt every day as a way to simply write something every day, a warm up for writing fiction, which is my passion. Writing is like exercise. Warm ups are good for exercise. But after completing a month of blogging about T-shirts, I have learned that this blog serves as a journal; it documents my life in geek, sort of a tour of my interests in pop culture. The blog serves as a tool for self-inventory, for assessment and analysis of self and the origins of self, for stepping through the process of individuation in catalogues, lists, and ranks.

The blog also made me aware that I have some serious gaps in my T-shirt ownership, and I am in the process of collecting some new T-shirts for several of the great popular culture icons that I truly love. Stay tuned.

I was also a bit surprised that people checked out my blog and continue to check it, read it, and even comment on it. I am very appreciative of this readership. Please feel free to share your thoughts in my comments section. I will respond.

Also, please note that I have moved the original introductory text to the side bar. And now, I present to you the most recent entry of 365 T-shirts: a journal of my life in geek. Thank you for reading.

T-shirt #152: Pajamas: SeaLab

T-shirt #152: Pajamas: SeaLab

Mr. T-shirt Blogger is taking a hiatus from the T-shirt blog for probably four days (that's the plan anyway.. and now I am up to five days). I will resume crazy, long, ridiculously complex posts that make your mind reel on Wednesday August 21st (though maybe not).

Taking at least one more extra day of recuperation.

Had a bowel movement!! I know that's something you all wanted to know. It's important to me that the bowels are waking up. I am very in tune with my bowels.

Recuperation is taking longer than I expected. I did not think about how much pain there would be after having my prostate cut out of my abdomen. I know; I mentioned this yesterday. But I think it needs repeating.

I thought I would be writing ahead on the blog while recuperating, but so far that has not happened. I may take another day or two of hiatus before I launch the next crazy long and complex posting.

This T-shirt came to me via John Kasdorf, a good friend of mine and Liesel's.

Back to comics, TV watching, and rest.
