So here's the shirt I made for the spelling bee (which I did not win... I messed up on "alopecia," which I know perfectly well how to spell IRL. Do you think it had something to do with the glass of wine clutched in my hand?). I think it scaled down pretty well from a size T (for tent-like).
One of my fellow competitors, the thoroughly awesome geologist Maggie, announced her intention to go get some of this ribbon for herself.
Also, we (especially Jim and Rhys) had fun posing the little Lego stormtrooper minifig Rhys had brought along. I think this guy's a natural... can America's Next Top Model be far behind?
