Several years back I used to sell t-shirts on Spreadshirt but closed it because the work it took to maintain the shop wasn’t matched by the number of shirts sold. But now I’ve been asked to sell t-shirts again and I’m proud to announce that I just opened my new T-shirt shop on Spreadshirt: Dodger Tees!
Yesterday I posted a poll asking if I should turn my “I’ve got Religion” design into tees, and while the voting was sparse Dodgers fans on Twitter gave a quick and resounding “YES!” so I uploaded it and turned it into T-shirts. But I also uploaded a design with Chase Utley, and all of my designs got put on a wider range of products. Which caused a new problem. How do I display everything to make it easy to see all the designs I have available? Continue reading
The LA Dodgers had a bad week last week, dropping two straight series for the first time this season. As I was watching the game Saturday night I found myself once again tweeting “#LetsGoDodgers” with claps and I thought this could be a great t-shirt to wear to the Ravine. Before I went to bed the tee was made and on sale. Continue reading
Earlier this season I started responding to people complaining that the Dodgers were going to lose a game while still pretty early in the game with the hashtag #ItAintOverYet. As I write this, last night’s game was yet another one of those games when the Arizona Diamondbacks scored five runs off Rich Hill in the first inning. I had already been toying with the idea of making an #ItAintOverYet tee, with a rough design started by the time the game started, and by the end of the third inning, I had most of the design finished.

It turns out that another milestone has been reached in my hormone replacement therapy (HRT). The downside is that it means I have to replace some of the clothing in my dresser. Continue reading
I finally gave myself my first injection of estradiol valerate, after spending a couple of hours putting it off because I was afraid it would be a pain in the proverbial arse. But it was literally nothing! The syringe took a little time to fill to 25 mL but making sure my leg was clean and dry before pushing the needle into it took longer than it took to put the needle in and injecting the medicine.
I now wonder why I was so worried and nervous about. There was a drop of blood on my leg after removing the needle but I know that happens some times after getting a shot so I’m not surprised by it. Now I just have to decide where to put the medicine and syringes when I’m not using them. My used syringes get recapped and dropped in a cleaned out juice bottle so that’s a no brainer, it goes on the floor by my desk. That’s where I’ll give myself the injections after all.
(Yesterday I published an article that I had started writing in June, and I just realized I had never finished writing it. I’m not sure how I let that slip by me, but the title had nothing to do with the article as it was written. I’m including some of the info that should have been in that article in this one. I’m sorry if I confused anyone. – JMH)
As I’ve fought with my weight the last few months there have been a few other things going on with me. Some of the things aren’t so great, and some of them aren’t bad, but there are definitely some new things for me to get used to as we get ready to turn the calendar from July to August.
