Hi -- just thought I'd drop a comment and mention I've subscribed (yes, although one who spotted the lj link).  Well, that and, since learning the word orthagonal (yesterday), I have now begun to use it.  I have gotten only blank looks so far, but I have high hopes.  "'Tis a wonderful word.  So there you go -- it's already spreading.
Nothing to add to the t-shirt ideas, I'm afraid, except that all your ideas so far are excellent and make me wistfully think of making a dozen t-shirts and wearing them in regular rotation.  But that might get a little cold in winter.

I had no idea!  I use it constantly, and my coworkers don't look at me funny, but maybe they're just nice.

Hey, wow to both Deborah and Helen.  I've just never heard the word used.  Not once.  But I'm only one speaker.  How long have either or you been using the word?

Coming late to the T-Shirt party, and what fantastic suggestions! Mine would
have to be "A spell is the right words delivered in the right way". It's not
perhaps as witty as a quote as some of the others, but it means the most to
me. (from Magicians of Caprona.)
