Stuff I Love

Anyone who knows me will tell you that my three worst qualities are tardiness, messiness, and insisting that Spice World is actually a really important piece of satirical cinema.

There's obviously nothing I can do about the latter two, but I remain confident that someday my doctor will diagnose me with a rare thyroid problem that causes me to be 15 minutes late for everything.

Until then, I need this shirt:

No explanations or excuses necessary. Just smile and shrug.

p.s. Once, to make up for my lateness, I drew my supervisor a silly picture inspired by this. It didn't work.

I have a good friend that is now getting this shirt for their birthday. Thank you.

Lauren said...

Spice World is rule. That is all.

Sal said...

I'm chronically tardy, too. I once hear a comedian talk about how you might as well just fess up and dispense with the fake excuses. So I've been known to say, "Sorry I'm late. I left late."

Also works as a fantastic maternity shirt...

futurelint said...

Ha! I'm 5 minutes late for everything... my mom always say that I was "born 5 minutes late and have spent 28 years trying to catch up" which I think is adorable!

ME TOO!!

(I hear tardiness is all the rage...)

Claire said...

That's just true, about Spiceworld. Not a fault - a fact.

A FACT.

My BFF is SO getting this as a gift.

Amanda M. said...

Oh. Hunh. I totally thought this shirt was a pregnancy joke that I just wasn't getting.

I... Still kinda feel like it is.

I love that everything gets passed around in our blogging community! I just posted this picture for my bf on my blog (survivinggreen.blogspot.com), and found it somewhere else!!

Lorena said...

I should get my husband a dozen of these so he can wear underneath everything he owns.... and so a "superman" like apology - just open his shirt.
I am always late because of him. It's not even funny anymore.

Emily said...

I have a good friend that is now getting this shirt for no reason. Oh wait, that friend is me. Thank you friend, thank you!!!

Angela said...

I was late (as usual) to work today. I could use that shirt, as well. *sigh*

Katy Mary said...

I am late for everything, lately it seems it's my fiance's fault more than my own though. I tend to be AT LEAST 30 mins late no matter where I go. I could def use this shirt!

Aleutie said...

I need a tee that says "YOU ARE LATE AGAIN, BUT I FORIGVE YOU".

lisa said...

I'm never on time. On the rare chance I make it someplace before the designated meeting time, it's as though all the stars in the universe have aligned themselves to make it happen.

Nadine said...

Spice World! A work of staggering genius. Truth!

Anonymous said...

Also fun to wear while telling your boyfriend you might be pregnant.

WendyB said...

I hope that t-shirt isn't a message from Aunt Flo.

xo Shan said...

You are my hero.

This is my perfect shirt. People don't even expect me to be on time anymore, they just tell me things start a full hour before the actual time.

You are an awesome author, and this blog never fails to make me smile.

check out mine sometime, its just a fledgling and I'm a newbie, but I'd love to hear what you think!

Yary and Sary said...

i agree with you! haha i need the shirt too..

Yaryy.

"Spice World is actually a really important piece of satirical cinema."

It is. It absolutely is.

I am so late to work so often I mention it in job interviews "I will always be late, is this a problem for you? Then do not hire me, we will not get along".

I am pretty much on time for the bar or party.

Vanessa said...

That drawing you referenced is hilarious. I like that it's so badly drawn that it's just "this animal."

Vijay Kumar said...

eva said...

Very good idea! Will give one to my friend coz she's always late. :D

Jenni said...

YES! I... definitely need this. I always have every intention of being on time! Shit just happens, okay? :P

kathryn-louisa said...

I am chronically late, apart from for important things like flights and interviews, where I always convince myself I will be late and turn up waaaay too early!

xx

Katy said...

I too am always late. ALWAYS ten minutes, sometimes 20, and occasionally 30-40 minutes. My good friends have learned to tell me 15 minutes earlier then the acutal time to be anywhere importnat or know not to start worrying about me not being there until about 20 minutes past scheduled meeting time. hahaa.
I NEED this shirt.
