Doo dooo… dopdedoo… boodeboo loup garou…

Oh God’s teeth I haven’t updated FrillyShirt in two weeks

Erm. Uh. *rustle*rustle* Hello! Hi, everyone! How, how are you? I’ve had a well-stocked buffet of stuff going on lately, in every sphere… I’ve begun a new course, again at the ol’ Uni of Melb, with its windy leaf-scattered paths and its constant expectation of raffish youths in stripèd blazers. I’ve been planning the wedding, not quite according to the Google Method. I’ve also been looking for fresh employment – does anyone know of a vacancy for a fop? Can provide own luxuriance; real hair.

I do have a few pieces up my sleeve, which just need a little polish before I share them – a film review, some rampant speculation, and perhaps even some pictures! There’ll be cake, there’ll be Prussians, your socks will be knocked clear off. In the meantime, though, while I recombobulate my brainpan, here’s the new design up in the FrillyShirt shop: a tea tea shirt! A tea shirt of tea! You can even get it in tea-coloured cotton – well, depending how much milk you take.

    That = best t-shirt. If only there was a similar one about coffee.

    I’m an ironmonger, leave me alone! D:

    Thank you! Far too kind! Coffee or gtfoffee?

    Hold on, Prussians?!? Why was I not informed sooner? In any case, it is nice to have you back on teh interwebs, my friend. If you ever had the time to sit down and scribble, you should do an occasional Frilly Shirt webcomic as an update.

    In other news, I’ve been hearing tales of a long-haired, impeccably-dressed gentleman trotting around Melbourne Uni being nice to first years. You wouldn’t happen to know anything about such attrocities, would you?

    Prussians are notoriously stealthy. The German Unification basically happened by putting up new street signs and things when no-one was looking. THIS WAY TO DER RATHAUS WHICH IS PART OF GERMAN EMPIRE NOW. NOT INDEPENDENT STATE ANY MORE. *skitterskitter*

    Rumours of my hair have been greatly exaggerated. Seriously, though – really? Or are you being rhetorical?
