Fashion Corner

I don't know if you've seen this new whiteboard T-shirt, but for a mere £60 you too can express yourself. Of course, you can do that with a regular T-shirt, or get your own printed, but they aren't hi-tech enough. And they're usually too stylish for geeks.

I know what you're thinking,
but I don't have one like this.

On one of the sites I went to whilst looking for a report in English, they commented that it would be great for writing down girl's phone numbers. If you can pull the chicks wearing it. It reminds me of the screens the Teletubbies have on their chests.

However, maybe I'm wrong. Maybe they'll become a must-have fashion item. Just in case, it'll be a good idea to work out what you'd write on yours. Well, any ideas?

I've decided what I would put. Can you guess what that would be?

FIRST!!!

Bee said...

Your's would say:
"Hi, my name is Brian."

What do I win?

Bee said...

Mine would say:

"Hi my name is- Hi my name is... Slim Shady wikiwiki"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Name_Is

Brian o Vretanos said...

Bee:

No that wasn't what I was thinking, so you don't win anything.

I'll give you a massive clue - I wasn't thinking of any rap lyrics either...

Bee said...

"Emilia, please marry me"

"Do you know the way to San Jose?"

"I'm lost!"

"Pass the Cava"

Tracy said...

I think you would have a stapler since Jean Knee made you in to one.

Or you could have a book put on one since you're a big fan of reading books that I would never read.

Tracy said...

Or it would say "I'm probably smarter than you but I won't hold that against you."
That's my opinion anyways.

Tracy said...

Ooh ooh or it would just say
FIRST

Tracy said...

Or maybe ELEVENTH

Tracy said...

Or it could say "Call me on the tele"
No that's what mine might say.

Bee said...

eleventh!

Tracy said...

Or it could say
TRACY JUST BECAME ELEVENTH...WOOT

Tracy said...

BEE I AM GOING TO KICK YOUR ASS

Bee said...

Sorry Tracy, I had to be sneaky! ;op

Bee said...

BWAHAHAHAHA!

Tracy said...

I had a whole witty plan and you just went and peed in my cheerios.

Bee said...

I like this idea you had: "I'm probably smarter than you but I won't hold that against you."

Tracy said...

Well, thank you. Flattery always works on me.

Tracy said...

I think Dan's should say "In accordance to the prophecy, make me a sandwich."

Bee said...

No, his should say:
"I am not GAY... not that there's anything wrong with that."

Tracy said...

Oh, that's a good one. I love how he always writes "not that there's anything wrong with that" everytime he mentions a gay person. I vote for that one.

Bee said...

Mine should read, "I pee on cheerios"

Brian is going to vomit. ;op

Tracy said...

I wonder what mine would say. Any ideas?

I like the cheerios one for you.

Bee said...

"Well, you ASKED for my opinion! Get off your pissy pot and stop crying about it!"

Too long?? :o)

Tracy said...

I like it. My hubby also said "You just walked into a shitstorm." That's one of my favorite sayings.

Bee said...

HA HA! That one is good too!

Tracy said...

Yeah, I think he's pretty proud of it too!
Won't Brian love us when he discovers that we've taken over his comment section?

Bee said...

He's used to it by now.
He'll say something British like "Pip pip"

Tracy said...

Maybe he'll call us on his tele to say it.

Tracy said...

Well, I must go now. My children are starting WW3. Must police the monkeys.

Bee said...

Ha! maybe he's hiding.

Bee said...

L8TR

Brian o Vretanos said...

Tracy:

Bad luck at not being 11th - Bee can be evil sometimes ;-)

You're both quite welcome to hijack my comments - it's been a while since that happened.

Neither of you have managed to guess correctly. Where's Jean Knee? She might be able to get it...

Bee:

.Hiding? You should know by now that I watch the news between 6 and 7

Bee said...

I didn't realize what time it was. It's only at work tht I watch the clock.

Bee said...

"Brian the Brit?"

Brian o Vretanos said...

Bee:

Nope.

One of Tracy's ideas made me just think of the following:

"You might think I'm smarter than you, but you're probably wrong..."

Bee said...

ha! That one's good too!

"I'm not a geek!"

Tracy said...

Shoot, I thought one of mine would be right!
Where is Jean Knee?
And you're very right Brian. She was like a snake in the grass, waiting to pounce on me and she was successful. She got to be both first and 11th. It's a shame really.

Jean Knee said...

she's done that pouncing thing before. so very sneaky

my sweet hub made a shirt for my mom to wear when she stands next to me...I'll email it to you

Jean Knee said...

I've been doing the stupid yard and grocery shopping ewww.

Brian o Vretanos said...

Jean Knee:

That sounds intriguing.

I don't mind shopping, though I never get everything I need, so end up making several trips a week.

Brian o Vretanos said...

Have you tried the online shopping thing? I don't like the idea, personally, but some people find it takes all the hassle away.

Jean Knee said...

It's All Greek To Me

Brian o Vretanos said...

Jean Knee:

Είναι απλά, κάνεις μια παραγγελία με την υπεραγορά online για τα προϊόντα που θέλεις, και τα μεταφέρουν στο σπίτι σου. Δεν το κάνουν αυτό στην ΗΠΑ;;;

Jean Knee said...

okay, no way I'm gonna translate that or anything so just writ it in English.


BEE!! Brian's speaking greek

Jean Knee said...

Back Up?

Jean Knee said...

Leave Me Alone?

Jean Knee said...

Beat It, Junior?

Jean Knee said...

What's Happening Hot Stuff?

Where's The Beef?

Huh?




am i close?

Brian o Vretanos said...

To save Bee the trouble, here's Babel Fish's translation:

It is simply, you make a order with the supermarket online for the products that you want, and him they transport in your house. Him they do not make this in USA;;;

I don't think my Greek's that illiterate ;-)

It didn't even translate the question marks...

Brian o Vretanos said...

I did get the "simply" bit wrong, though, should have been απλό, not απλά ;-)

Hands up all those who noticed...

Jean Knee said...

my gawwd what a rookie mistake


I rarely literate in English forget any othe language except maybe pig latin--even then I have to think about it

Jean Knee said...

my shirt would say:

Back Up Yvonne, I don't give a crap about Your Ranch

Brian o Vretanos said...

Jean Knee:

Latin-speaking pigs conjures up a picture.

Et tu, Butcher!

Dan said...

55 th !!!!

Jean Knee said...

haa ha ha ha haa

that might not be exactly what the pig would say

how bout you too, asswipe?

nahhh yours is way better

Brian o Vretanos said...

Dan:

Is that what you'd put on your T-shirt? "55th"?

Tracy said...

So, I'm ready now to hear what you would put on your shirt Brian. Have out with it.

Brian o Vretanos said...

Tracy:

My idea was to leave it completely blank...

Related but less subtle versions would be:

"This Space Intentionally Left Blank"

"No Comment"

"Tacet."

I thought Jean Knee might have guessed that. Oh well...

Bee said...

No offense Brian but I like our suggestions better.

Bee said...

I think I especially like jean knee's "It's all Greek to me"

Brian o Vretanos said...

Bee:

I prefer the other suggestions too, though I wouldn't walk around with any of them on my tshirt ;-)

Jean Knee said...

fraidy cat

Brian o Vretanos said...

Jean Knee:

I'd prefer to say that I have standards... but you're right ;-)

Tracy said...

I thought you were going to say that your shirt would say "First!" I'm ashamed.
