Tuesday I talked about the good and bad people in my life. Some of you seemed quite happy that I don't have bad people in my life, but that's not the case. I do have them, everyone has them, but I won't get rid of them so I don't see the point in complaining about them. If you're going to complain about a problem that is easily fixable then the solution is right there. Fix it.
Wednesday I took a brief look at some of my favourite things. There was a lot of nostalgia, and being a kid because I posted the full version of the opening theme to Pokemon (I WANNA BE, THE VERY BEST), and the opening titles to Cardcaptors. It was a very gay post too I'll give it that.
Thursday was my latest podcast which didn't seem to get too many comments but oh well. It was kinda long at half an hour. The first 8 minutes were meaningless though. The main point was that I told some of the past between myself and Jessica. Hear some of the stupid shit we did in school. I also have something huge involving her I hope to be able to announce soon. By soon I mean sometime within the next month to be fair though.
Friday I did something no one ever thought I would do. I complimented myself, and accepted that I'm a good writer. It didn't last very long though and I went in to some of the downsides of my super cool writing ability. Namely the fact that I'm still not brilliant with fiction, and that if I don't act on inspiration when I get it, it tends to remain un-used and I've lost a good idea. I can take notes, but it just won't end up as good as it could have.
Saturday I posted what was a much longer than usual chapter of Immortal Space. I also nearly changed Geoff's name to Jeff, the Americanised spelling. Then Fang said it could have had an interesting backstory and using my super awesome writing powers I came up with the backstory and reversed my decision. There is now a reason Geoff uses the British spelling. There was also an abundance of social commentary. I didn't intend to get that preachy.
Sunday I posted some birthday wishes for both my good blogging bro Fang, and my niece. This means I will never forget either of their birthdays. Except I will. I forget my own sometimes. I even forget Jessica's :( If I forget the birthday of the most important person to me, I'm going to forget yours.
Okay that was about the length of a regular round up post but I promised rampant prostitution and by God I will deliver! See as well as talking about Jessica on last Thursday's podcast I breached the idea of opening an online store, but I would need a place where they sell my designs. I have now found such a place in Zazzle.com. The only downside is I only make 10% of the sale. I don't mind so much really though. Anyway, since I've had the idea, I have come up with some shirts, and some other items as well. And not all of it relates directly to the site. In fact only about 10% of the stuff on there is related to here. I'm quite proud of some of the things I've come up with. I'm not so proud of the others, but they aren't too bad.
One problem I have is that I'm not an artist. I can come up with a witty line, but graphics can really help make a t-shirt as well as a witty slogan. Sometimes I get lucky and can find a good image online, and others I have no choice but to either go with just a slogan, or not make it at all. I'm also still bad at this whole design thing. Bear with me.
Like I said though I am proud of some of them. Especially the kids shirts, which I adore. They come in two kinds. I was never fond of the phrase "Reach out and touch someone" so I changed it to "Reach out and touch a cat."

Then at the request of Nellievaughn, I decided to show the dogs some love too, and came up with "Reach out and touch a dog."
There are several other things, but these two are the cutest, and this has lasted a while, so I'll have to leave it there. Be sure to check out the rest of my shop at http://www.zazzle.co.uk/theramblingperson. There's a chance some designs aren't appearing yet another. Another shirt I'm quite happy with is the "These boots are made for stalking" shirt. If that's up then it should all be there. I haven't sold anything, but it's early days, and like I said, these things don't exactly have mainstream appeal yet. If you enjoy one of the designs, do me a favour and share it.
Okay I really am ending it this time. I hate to be all self promotional like that -_- I'm not selling out, I don't expect to make a lot of money. I'd be quite happy with 5-10 dollars a month just to keep my podcast going at least.
