OK. . . I've thought about this for a long time. . . so here goes. . .

deVine---Because she would keep things peaceful on the island and would have things running in top condition. . .

Claire---To keep our minds and hearts open on the long nights with her tales of wonder and fantasy. . . and to write out the script!

Sudhir---Because there has to be another guy to help hunt and fish and do all of the heavy lifting!!  And because there has to be at least two of us!

Sunshine---To give us all the tools that we will need to survive here. . . and show us how to use them. . . if there's anyone that can do it. . . she can. . .

Irie---I know that if there's a way to get around, across, or through a river or lake, Irie's the one to call. . . she can slosh through anything!!  She'd be our guide. . .

There you go. . . and now, I have one final comment. . .

Wildchild, if you think that you're going to put Christopher and I on the SAME island. . . we will each be needing our own side of that island!!!  LOL

Michael and myself.

Yep, that pretty much does it for me.

Since I'm three short, can I bring my dog?

I think it might be interesting to make this a "learning experience" - Let's make it an opportunity to spend some time with people we never would be likely to encounter elsewise... I'd like to make in an international event...

How about this - I - the token citizen of the USA - Passions time zone even.... become stranded with five folks from as many different cultures...

Severn - to teach me some Australian ways
Craig - to show this New Englander our Old English roots
Sudhir - to help me understand the thinking of the Mid-Easterners
Munda - to contribute the European ambience and
Marilyn - to remind me that Canadians are also Americans....

Ya Think???

Well lemme see....there are lots of people here I think are wonderful, and so going on 'friend-value' ratios, I will go from there...

1) is Nan, because I truly like her as a person, and her knowledge AMAZES me!

2) is Alicat because he was alot of fun in person, and he has this edgy personality that makes him fascinating to talk to.

3) is LngJnAg because he can be sensible and fun all at once. Now I LIKE this sailor!

4) is Lorelei54 because LJA needs his sweetie, and because her and I hit it off so well, that a stranding on an island would be great fun! (I have yet to redo my Living Room Lorelei...)

and last but not least....

5) is Balladeer because I adore him, and his poetry, and his silly funny ways!

I really had room for so many more people *sigh*, but these were my first thoughts.
*hugs*

oh and....Satiate girlie...we'd squeeze you in my suitcase...PLUS...there are espresso makers that don't take electricity (I have one..me hubbs bought me it...ain't he sweet?). So in theory, build me a fire, and I'll do the rest, provided Ron will climb the tree and get coconuts for milk for me to steam...

BUT, I still think that this GREAT BIG LUMP OF LAND I live on is beautiful hehehe (remember you only saw 1% of it lol )

Balladeer > leadership N wit

Marge > faith N compassion

Elizabeth > creativity N determination

Sudir > imagination N resourcefullness

Mark > insightfullness N trust  

Now, to be honest I see an outcome varying from the show orignally aired .. I wanted RUDI to win but out he got cast..

My outlook would be Balladeer forms the alliance taking hand of Marge and me .. Mark playing down the middle a friend to us three leaving charismatic Elizabeth N Sudir at the final tribal meet!  Oh goddie, we remaining three get to pose the deciding question to ask this galNguy... now who shall it be... LOL oh how sweet!

the 5 I'd take are .....

1) Kamla, well because she is my best friend and caring and amazing plusmy days would be boring without her.

2) Philip, my MP, my teacher, my dear dear freind. I'll need him there to protect me from that cute little kiwi that keeps hounding me about Aus.  

3) Sharon, well with this devine lady I'm sure to get up to mischief with hehehehe Pulling pranks on everyone.

4) Jamie because he is a dear friend and sesitive and my BFF. And we'd all feel safe with him.

5) Walty well because he is wonderful and always cracks me up with his jokes and weird humour.


Thanks Sharon

All righty then.....

My choices seem to be... um... Take Severn along and learn about that long thin New place with a "Z" in it.... or..

Replace her with someone who knows about that big island near New Zealand... or..

Forget my idea altogether and just go on XAngel's trip - Hers sounds pretty good.. or... um..

I could find some magical place with a riverview in the backwoods of nowhere... and get stranded with some hermit who could use a big hug....WHASKOTL

I'll have to think about this one...

LOL

NZ, eh? I knew that, right??? ...

I'm truly surprised that, after all these posts, nobody else has brilliantly suggested that there be an alternate in case one of the five can't make the boat in time.  Naturally, I assume I'd be the alternate because of my rare gift for sensitivity.  If I am chosen as the alternate, I promise to bring along my special cookbook.  And, I promise that the island would never (and I mean NEVER) be overrun with kitties.  Cookbook?  Kitties?  Coincidence??  I think not.  Kitty Fricasee - yummy

Just the first five that popped into my head:

Brad & Christopher - need someone the debate with...

Nan, PdV - to balance out the philosophy with reality and love...

Debating about Ron or PoetFemmeFatal, Ron because he is god-like or PFF because of her romps in the Adult forum...  Okay, both of them.

What?  That's 6?  Okay, I'll stay home then and they can write me....

This isn't fair... I wanted to include:

JMBouder, Isis, Satiate, Marge, Doreen, WhtDove, XAngel, Sunshine, Brian, Michael, Temptress, and about a dozen others....

This has to be one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever made in my life! I almost chickened out and didn’t do it, it was so tough! But… so many of you surprised me (some more than others, though I won’t mention any names Karilea…*ahem*) Anyway, here’s my list…

First, I want to say that Ron would have been on my list if were not for two things. First, how in the world would anyone expect Passions to survive two whole months without him??? And secondly… because he’s a natural leader. And I want that spot! Hmmph!  


  • Sharon - Aside from being a very close friend, Sharon has the best ideas in the world! And she has them all the time! How this woman does it, I don’t know. But I have yet to hear a bad idea come out her lips! So Sharon would be our answer to boredom and desperate situations. I’d imagine she’d probably come up with some way to get high-speed Internet access onto the island. And a woman that can do that… I want her on my team! Besides… she promised to be my pillow!  

  • Nicole - Aside from being the one who promised to fund the trip in the first place (don’t try to deny it Nic…) She also promised to bake chocolate chip cookies. I’m not above bribery… Seriously, a better friend and nicer person would be hard to find. She has an amazing amount of patience when it comes to dealing with me and that’ll prove a virtue on the island… ‘cause I have zero patience. She’d be the one to keep me in line. (No, it’s ‘cause of the chocolate chip cookies…)

  • Abrahm - He’s da man. Quick (unless he’s been up all night playing games… which would be a moot point on a deserted island…) and witty and full of energy. Basically… Abe would be my lackey. Not really different from here. Seriously, Abe is a great guy, with a smart-alec ‘tude that shows he’s quick on his feet. Aside from the endless pranks we can pull on the others of our group, Abe will serve well as bait. If he’s quick enough, we can get more than one use out of him!

  • Karilea - Because she depends on me for everything and it would be nigh unto cruelty to leave her all by her lonesome. I don’t think she could survive long without me! Seriously, she’s another kind heart. But thrown in there is an acerbic wit (that I’m sure few have seen save me… she saves all the “good” stuff for me, I just know it!) And since she’s in the legal field, if we’re ever attacked by a tribe of cannibal pygmies, we can make her talk to them in lawyerese. I have no doubt that after a few moments of that, those poor islanders will be running (paddling) for their lives. (And if that doesn’t work... there’s still Abe.)

  • Kamla - Kamla, I have to take. Not because she’s also one of the best friends I have. Not because she’s incredibly intelligent and (sometimes) kind-hearted. Not because she would drive everyone batty asking silly questions about inconsequential things. Not because she’d complain day in and day out about the weather, the sleeping conditions, the food, lack of tea. Not because we’d probably end up eating her after a couple of days. No, none of that. I’d take Kamla because she’d kill me if I didn’t!  



There are so many, I think I’ll just have to make the island retreat a regular thing. That way I can take different people each time!   Ok, so who wants to book the next trip…?  

-Oh, and as much as I hate to say it… I have to agree with Sven.   That’s ok, I’ll take my own side of the island. With my luck, it’d be a beach resort with tons of people, good food and good booze. I’d probably end up forgetting about poor Sven there in the dirt, lost and lonely, trying his best, but still digging for worms.

ROTFLMAO Some people want me...some don't.  Good...for some of 'em! HEH HEH...

Chris, save all the good stuff for you? OK.

Still, going back to my original plan:  Everyone take 5, we'll have the whole ding-dang community there...

but wait!  We have yet to hear from.....




RON!!!

Christopher,
            I know that it pained you to agree with me. . . about as much as it pained me to agree with you!!  

But I do think that MY side of the island would be far more beautiful than your side. . . not to mention bigger! (Or so Wildchild says!!!)

So, go ahead and have your resort. . . I'll have the island's sunset. . . and that's all that I'll need. . .
