A Bit of a Poll

Penned upon the 6th of April, 2008

Hullo, all and every! Bit of a quiet week – a windstorm here, some musical theatre there, but little worth writing about. Drinking gin and listening to hymns – well, one out of two isn’t bad. I have, however, been doing some more research on the fascinating Paterson family. I’m awaiting some documents from the National Library of Australia, and there’s a book I must pick up when I have a little cash – ah, the bohemian life, living hand-to-bookshelf and occasionally finding the dosh for a four-button suit in a rather dashing grey tweed. And, in real times of plenty, for food.

Speaking of natty garb, though, the new Tea Shirt Shop seems to be working! Did I mention I switched providers? I did, and you’ll find the same designs, tarted up a bit and with many more styles and colours – not bad! I’m puzzled in pondering what design next to offer, and have decided to throw the question to the floor. What would you like to see on a FrillyShirt Tea Shirt? Burly-Man? Leopard Oil? Mecha-d’Artagnan? Gerrald Oliver Pettigrew, the Flying Poet? Perhaps you have your own design you’d like to stir into the FrillyShirt pot? Answers on a postman, please!
