as a general rule, i steer clear of graphic print and slogan tees – they're mostly tacky and just not me at all – but when i walked past this jurassic park tee it haunted me for the next couple of weeks until i just had to head back to a primark to pick it up. of course i'll never be seen outside of the house in the tee because, let's face it, the neon floral print is hideous, but as huge jurassic park fan i knew that i wanted this tee in my wardrobe. why? i really couldn't tell you, but i had a massive internal itch that meant i just had to buy it. i opted for a very oversized size 16 and throw this on over a pair of pink pyjama shorts that i own for a pair of super comfy, super jurassic park fan pyjamas that satisfy my desire to own and wear the tee without having to embarrass myself by wearing it in the outside world.
on sunday evening i heard the news that richard attenborough, the creator of jurassic park (well, at least in the films) had sadly passed away, so i'll be wearing these pjs in his memory over the next couple of days to celebrate the ups and downs that were the jurassic park trilogy, and the man in the films who gave us the opportunity to get up close and personal with the dinosaurs in his (mostly problematic) theme park.
there have been rumours now of a fourth jurassic park for as long as i can remember, but i think that it may be final that the fourth instalment, jurassic world, is finally going to be with us in 2015! it's fair to say that i'll be straight to the cinema to experience the dinosaurs on the big screen, excited to see what the fourth film has to bring us (more cunning velociraptors, i hope!)
