Sir David! [20090213|17:52]
Mad Scientess Jane Expat

On a much lighter note, I received my Tree of Life poster this week. I ordered it after watching Sir David Attenborough's latest programme on Charles Darwin. (In case this somehow passed you by, yesterday was the 200th anniversary of Darwin's birth.)

I have been watching Sir David's nature programmes since I was a wee girl. I love Sir David. What I want to know is, do you love Sir David?

Poll #1348794 Sir David Attenborough

How much do you love Sir David?

I adore Sir David. He is wonderful. His voice makes me go all wibbly.
Sir David's pretty good at that science thing.
My education has been sadly deficient and I do not know Sir David.

If you really love Sir David, you can watch him speak to Andrew Marr about the new programme here.

Have you seen the Spiting Image episode where DA is inventing all the made up animals that he shows on his documentaries?

No! YouTube is failing me as well. Although a search for "spitting image animals" did yield the Chicken Song, which was pretty funny.

This is going to sound really random.. but I was googling people wearing xkcd shirts trying to get an idea of what size I should get... and I found your entry here: http://nanila.livejournal.com/648047.html

Can you tell me what size that is? Lol. I was going to get a small, but I really hate it when shirts are way too short on me, plus my chest tends to stretch it out and pull it up. Halp? Do they come really long/shrink?
Thanks! Again, sorry for the creepiness.

Hello! Sorry it took me a bit to get back to you. I haven't been on the internets much this weekend as it was my boyfriend's 30th birthday.

That's a medium, that is. It's a pretty long shirt and it's now been washed twice without noticeable shrinkage in the vertical direction. I generally get mediums with babydoll shirts for the same reason you do, but I think unless you're very busty, you'd be safe with a small for these shirts.
