    In addition to two brand new designs in my recently prettied-up Zazzle store, I'm thinking of doing up a t-shirt version of this classic picture of one of our cats:


    After all, who wouldn't want to wear one of those shirts to the dojo for their sparring session?

    Also, I'm thinking of doing a Kos-specific version of that first new design of mine I mentioned up there, since it was, after all, originally a Daily Kos image macro (recommended by Kos himself when I first used it as a comment in a troll diary ages ago!):

    After all, it doesn't cost me anything to add a new design to my Zazzle store, as they are printed on demand.

    Also, a note on Zazzle's designs: You can modify the shirts that they are printed on yourself, changing the styles or colors (and, therefore, the prices!). Unfortunately, for reasons known only to themselves, Zazzle treats white picture elements &mdash' like the lettering on the "Banhammer!" shirt — as white only when printing on "dark" t-shirts; on light-colored t-shirts, they treat it as transparent, so that if you were to get that design on, say, a powder blue t-shirt, the lettering would all be in powder blue, as would the white areas of the woodcut design. Grrrrr.

        Well, actually, my mom fell down a flight of stairs yesterday in my sister's house in Anchorage, and has not regained consciousness. Her age and condition make her a poor candidate for any kind of trepanation to relieve the bleeding pressure on her brain, so if she's going to pull through this (with probable damage to her speech centers, at that), she's going to have to do it more or less on her own.

        My sister is going to call here sometime today from the hospital room and put me on speaker so that I can actually speak words to my mom. She'll be able to hear them, of course, but there's no real way of knowing to what extent, if any, she'll understand them. My poor sister is the boots on the ground there, so she'll get to be the one to acquiesce to mom's DNR, if it comes to that.

        One of the medicines I'm taking to help with my orthostatic intolerance and a host of other autonomic nervous misfunctions is also a hella powerful antidepressant, which may be why I'm not currently a gibbering wreck. Well, that and my wife and cats help a lot, too (as does the outporing of support I've received on Twitter and in Top Comments last night).

        So I hope that you — and everyone else — is having a better Christmas season than mine has just become, so far.
