Deadliest catch

I'm quite a fan of the deadliest catch TV show, it's probably the swearing that I like , and also I'm a big fan of the sea and we only have pretend sea here (warm with no waves).

I thought I'd treat myself to a T-shirt. Not the sort of thing I'd normally do but what the heck. My choices were,

Northwestern...big fan of the Hansen brothers but never trust a man with a centre parting so that was out.

Wizard....is it me or is there some sort of dodgy deal going on there?

Time Bandit....reminds me far too much of all my boys, particularly #4, also there's a mullet involved.

That leaves the Cornelia Marie. Again shades of my boys, and I notice Cap'n Phil is smoking again (and I'm not). Not to be discounted is the fact that their website posted overseas but Time Bandits didn't.

I don't count the Early Dawn. There's a certain amount of smugness there that I'm not fond of, or earnestness, I'm not sure which.

Anyroad my T-shirt arrived. Now I'm not a small girl, not at all. I was very popular in my youth and I didn't need Pammy's surgery to get there, but foolishly and at the risk of annoying my American friends I assumed a large T-shirt would be , well, large. Mmmm the t-shirt rather emphasises my assets, but I'm a grumpy old woman in no make-up, so that means I now have a very nice gardening t-shirt that reads "F------/////vvvv Coooooooornelia Marrrrrrrieeeeeee". Next time I'll get the mug.

BTW. #4 will NOT be getting a chainsaw for christmas. Ha ha very funny. I'm still untangling the chickens from the rope and the big vinyl hand put them off laying for a week, imagine the damage he could do with a chain saw.

#4 and a chain saw? For the love of God woman - don't even joke about it!

So, I guess you ordered the women's cap sleeve t-shirt? And the sizes run a little small? We're glad you choose the F/V Cornelia Marie and not the Northwestern!
Thanks. Morgan

BTW-I checked your age on your profile and you're not old.

MOB: Too right. Don't even joke about it.

Morgan: Too right...cap sleeve womens shirt. As I said next time maybe a mug, or a larger size shirt, and definitely some work on the tread mill/ diet front.

From your American blogging friend: don't worry we can't make heads or tails out of the sizes here either. Mostly because they don't make clothes in America so there is no consistency. I bet if you look at the tag you will see "made in China" as about 99% of our clothes now come from there. I think their models are small. So now we have to ask, "Is it a women's large or a men's large?" If it is a women's large you have to ask for an xtra large. If it is men's you are probably alright with a large. Some day in a perfect world there will be consistency with clothing size. Until then...the mug might be safer.
And I am with you on the idea that a man who parts in the middle...not gonna trust so much.
