Birthday List – What, I Can’t Start My List in July?

Meredith has a birthday coming up this month, but she hasn’t posted her wish list yet, so I’m going to start mine so that all you plan-aheaders can get a head start. 🙂

Today’s list of things I want are all t-shirts. One of my favorite college professors, Mary Ellen Ryder, always taught in hilarious linguistics- or teaching-related shirts, and I’d like to have some of my own – not only because I think they’re cool, but because it seems like a fitting tribute to a crazy and caring teacher after her untimely death last fall.

So in case anyone is reading this and actually wants to stock my wardrobe – I’m a unisex medium, unless they’re sized big, in which case I could do a small. In women’s tees it really depends on the cut, but I’m usually a large or XL – if you look under measurements, look for a cross-chest measurement of at least 18″, preferably 19″.

I’ll start with my two very favorite shirts and go on from there in no particular order:
