@cbl_wv@therealjrn I can wear the larger size t-shirts but I have to go a a tentlike oversize so the damn thing doesn’t ride up when bending over. Tall shirts are a couple inches longer, and it makes all the difference.
@RiotDemon Well that is good as it is almost impossible to buy t-shirts that are even like ones 10 years ago with respect to fabric thickness. One store clerk told me (a couple of years ago) - well just buy and wear two of them. Umm. No. I’d rather they charge a bit more and make them thicker like they used to be.
Too lazy to make them at the moment. Maybe someday.
Plus, I’m cleaning out and working on getting rid of excess stuff. This activity does not bring out lots of joy and holiday cheer in my daily mood.
Goodwill is doing well by me at the moment tho.

Hey all you fuckers
Make these! You won’t regret, unless you are trying to avoid carbs:
(Credit for these ultimate best-you-will-ever-taste-brownes goes to the classic cookbook, The Joy of Cooking.
Get weaponry and fencing, you will need to defend the kitchen until they cool.
Expect them to be finish and gone seconds after serving.)
do be careful melting the chocolate.
Do take the “cool down the mixture” step seriously.
Do lower oven temp 25deg if using a glass pan.
Don’t ice these. The browns are way better than any icing could be.
Notes: from The Joy of Cooking. Brownies bake for about 20 to 30 minutes more after being taken out of the oven, so don’t skip the step about leaving them covered with a towel. If you bake them according to the recipe, they will not be done at the end of the baking time. That’s okay - just make sure they sit under a towel.
I don’t like nuts in brownies, so I always skip them. The double-boiler to melt the chocolate isn’t really necessary as long as you’re careful not to burn the chocolate. Keep the heat low and use a whisk to be sure.
Cockaigne is a mythical medieval land of plenty, where all the harshness of medieval peasant life does not exist.
Preheat oven to 350 F
1/2 cup butter
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
1 cup pecan meats
Melt the butter and chocolate in a double-broiler (or a pot over another pot of boiling water). Let this mixture cool, or the brownies will be heavy and dry. Beat the eggs and salt until light in color and foamy in texture. Add the sugar and vanilla gradually and continue beating until well creamed.
With a few swift strokes, combine the cooled chocolate mixture and the eggs and sugar. Do this by hand instead of using a hand mixer. Before it’s well mixed, fold in the flour. Add the nuts if desired. Stir gently until mixed. Try not to beat the mixture too heavily. Bake in a greased 9 X 13 inch pan for about 25 minutes at 350 F. Cover the pan with a towel and leave it to sit between 30 and 45 minutes. Don’t cut until the brownies are cool as the interiors are still moist when fresh from the oven.

(PS. I personally like them with lots and lots of walnuts added to the batter)
Have to order these no matter what they look like cause one son makes these his wardrobe. Everyday. Been in his school pics last three or four years in a row. . Would love to see these in just solid colors. Lots of solids with only the logo. In all cotton. Would buy from the t-shirt site also. In bulk. Please dear Gods of Meh give me some variety of color with only logos. I feel as if I am owed since I’ve been checking this site DAILY since inception/conception or whatever. I’ve never even scored a fuko bag or the previous versions. It’s like trying to buy unicorn in a sea of one-horned loving fecalfeliacs.
The shirts are nice. In fact, very nice. They shine above and beyond all other t-shirts. When I think of a Meh t-shirt I get a tad tearful. But, my sweet spot is an electronic gadget under $50. Such a thing I will buy regardless of need - such is my need for anything that uses electricity and has at least one light (an LED is preferred). Our house is full of gadgets. I have, for example, so many IP cams that some are simply aimed at each other.
