On my Wordie up! page, I posited a way to bring the wordiemobile to the masses, and reesetee wisely suggested raising it here: The other kind of -mobile, one of those dangly things with lots of words hanging from it, maybe even interchangeable wordies to hang from it...
I'm way behind in my reading, so I just read your post John. In fact, I did a rather embarassing little dance. I've been *wanting* a wordie t-shirt. Particularly anything I can wear in front of other people's kids. If we're taking requests, I would be up for a stuffie shirt. :)
In addition to my conversations list, check out chit-chat and idle chatter. Right now they're organized by legnth, but that needs to be redone. I'll turn it in with my TPS report.
Hey, speaking of that story, I also recommend Terry Bisson's other work. I just read Walking Man a little while ago. Very dreamlike and atmospheric--once you get over the lead girl's always saying "hit" instead of "it," that is.
U, these are classics. Every one of them! *counts money* I especially like hagiothecium and epicaricacy for t-shirt value. I especially like haversack for conversational value. And I just like meatspace, period. What's not to like?
Also, if there was a way to generate posters or shirts or something on-the-fly, a "purchase this list for use in meatspace" link would be nice to dynamically do what rocksinmypocket said, and create merch with lists in cloud format.
That's teh Interwebs, reesetee. We're on WORDIE, for god's sake.
John, I respectfully defer to jennarenn's suggestions for conversations--her Conversations list is probably more complete than mine, and certainly was listed first.
I'm partial to sausage fest though--partly because it still makes me giggle to see that phrase, and partly because all the comments are short enough that they might actually fit on the back of a shirt. (Do you think we could get permission to use the "hilarious misunderstanding" comic too?)
Actually, hilarious misunderstanding has even shorter comments, and is even more apparently obtuse. Maybe that one's better. Hmm...
Short for "merchandise." At most rock shows bands set up "merch tables" to sell tshirts, singles, etc.
Pretty soon Wordie merch will be available at the Wordie Cafe Press Store. It's empty so far, but planned items include "crappucino" mugs and "sesquipedalian" onesies. Please nominate other pieces of crap we can sell.
