a shirt of many memories

most traditional shirts allow stains to be removed when you wash them. i propose a shirt that actually holds the stain's colour so that upon looking at the shirt after a time you can get a sortof recap on your life for that period "oh i remember that night... thats when i ...."

alterations to the clothing line could include a shirt that has chemicals that may make different food products turn bright colours for that hippie feeling

       I prefer the sp. archaeology. I say stuff as many vowels into it as you can! That's the Brit way.

       This is really just an unwashed t-shirt, isn't it? Baked. I have one. I wear it when i'm painting (as in decorating, as opposed to "and this is my latest work - it's called blah blah blah") and never wash it. It's fucking revolting, but chock full o' memories.

       But, do you dig it?

       [shwanx] - looks like your shift keys don't work.

       //stuff as many vowels into it as you can! //   

       I wonder whether there's a Gaelic spelling of archaeology?

       Monica Lewinsky has a dress like this.

       I had a few shirts that were stained with the juice of green coconuts, and loved them as a souvenir of the tropics. So I was going to bun this idea.   

       Then I read the last paragraph.

       //This is really just an unwashed t-shirt, isn't it?// No it is nt. An unwashed shirt smells badly; as I understand it, this is a shirt which can be washed for hygieinic puposes, yet retains the visible stains. But [-] once again for the affectation of avoiding capitals.

       A bit petty there [MB]. Especially with the spelling errors in your paragraph.

More power to the lower cases, I say!

       Pertinax, "arceolas" (with a grave accent on the "a") would be the Gaelic for archaeology.   

       MB, you can have a [-] for the affectation of starting sentences with conjunctions, and for thinking I really was challenging the idea based on my having a skanky old shirt of my own. ;)

       Thank you, [murdoch].   

       <way off-topic> So, "arceolàs" (Not "àrceolas", and -olàs is the usual Gaelic derivative from Gr. -ologia? </wot>
pertinax, Jun 05 2007
  

       Yes to the first, pertinax, and not entirely sure about the second, although it seems to be that "-olas" does the same as "ology".   

       Lt Frank, stop that immediately.
