T-shirt Tag!

I got tagged by my newest blogpal Mathman from When Will I Use This?.

Let's see...this is what you are supposed to do:

1. Link back to the original post.

2. Describe two t-shirts that you own.

3. If you design your own vanity t-shirt what would it say?

4. Where would you wear your vanity t-shirt?

5. Tag three of your best blogging buds.

Well here goes:

1. check

2. Here are my 2 T-shirts:

This first t-shirt is a shirt I got free for attending a Microsoft Vista Launch Tour. I attended because the instructor of the computer class I was attending at the time made it a class assignment. At the Microsoft event, I picked a seminar to attend and mine was related to some Vista utility add-ons (I think) . It was kinda funny looking around at the crowd who attended this seminar and the people who were milling about at the hotel where it was held. Lots of people who looked like they might be computer geeks. I guess that goes without saying, being at a Microsoft event, and I don't mean to pigeon hole people, but there was a certain look in abundance that day!

Another thing that was funny is that they had all these laptops up front ready to present different tools, scenarios to demo, a huge screen, all these cords and stuff, and the presenters were smooth and did a pretty good job, but I swear at least 3 or four times in the presentation I attended, the screen went blank or some kind of error popped up! All of us geeks were laughing our geeky heads off at the irony! I sat through a Microsoft seminar that had a buncha Blue Screens of Death and all I got was this lousy t-shirt that doesn't fit because...uhhm... I think it shrunk or something!

My other t-shirt is one I got from when I was a classroom teacher at the elementary school (I am a itinerant special ed teacher presently). It is a Character Counts t-shirt that the school administration wanted staff and students to wear on Fridays to show school spirit and to model good behavior. Mine shrunk (funny how all my t-shirts keep doing that!) and got deoderant stains so I never wore it again after a while! (hey! being a teacher-especially a preschool special needs teacher is a sweaty job!)

When I was in high school, and just after graduating, I had a bunch of metal concert t-shirts-the Scorpions, Iron Maiden, AC-DC, etc, but I wore them out, or I got rid of them. I wish I hadn't gotten rid of some of them, although I could no longer wear that Scorpions shirt (it's the Blackout one with the guy with forks in his eyes!) or the Iron Maiden one with all that gross, axe-killer stuff. Needless to say, my parents were not amused with those kinds shirts!

3. My t-shirt would say: Glenn Beck: The asshole who's a real pain with an asshole in real pain.

I know-it's kinda dumb! I couldn't think of anything else!
4. I would wear it on a walk on the nature trail. No, really-this would be a good one to wear to the latest war protest.

5. I am gonna tag 3 unsuspecting blogmates: here they are and I can just bet they'll have some good t-shirts!!

Thanks for playing along and sorry I am late. Nature gave a scare shortly after I put up the meme and then power was gone for 24 + hours then life took.

Your vanity T is hilarious.
