Like all good TV shows this one has been cancelled! Sorry..did it myself. Time to move on!


If you have seen the CBS series Survivor, you may know what I'm going to ask. If not, I'll explain.

You are going to be stranded on a deserted island for two months. You will have a supply of rice, dried fruit and canned vegetable to eat (this island doesn't have rats!)  

Please chose 5 other Passions Members to be stranded with - and state the reason why you would choose them.

Oh, this is easy...

Ron  : Because he has the ability to tackle ANY problems that we may face

Sharon  : Because we have to have SOME fun on the island!

Abe & Krista : Come on, we have to start a revolution SOMETIME!


And last but not least...


Chris : Because I just couldn't go two months without seeing him in his little muscle shirt!

Hmmmm.... Well let's see...only 5? There's sooo many.

Ron for sure to tackle any problems that may arise. He seems to be quite good at putting things to right when in a sticky situation.

WhtDove...because she's great at looking at things from a fresh perspective and is very helpful and friendly.

Toerag...everybody needs a good laugh once in awhile and he can be the ultimate comedian.

Sven...what would life be without romance?

And last Christopher...gotta have someone to argue and debate with.

HE HE HE

you all must be kidding...

See who I would pick

The serious I... to quit laughing all the time
The funny I ... to quit complaining all the time
The cooking I ... to cook my food to survive
The cleaning I ... to clean self and tools of cooking etc.
The lazy I ... who else can give commands to the other 'I's
All of these 'I's with
the Me I... for without Me there is no I...

........ that is how it will be stranded all by myself else it is not stranding... is it?

now lets see who all will be there without invitation... by forces of nature itself...

Sunshine... for the sun has to shine ...
Moonchild for it nights follow the days...
Serenity, for left alone, I might just find time enough to be peaceful sitting under a palm tree drinky a syrup stronger than the strongest of alcohol... in the Jim Morrison haze...
Marge... for there will be the Indian spirit within me (I come from India, do I knot!)
Poet deVine will be there for the divine is everywhere...
Toerag could be there under my 10 toes unless first eaten up by piranha
and then there would be
butterflies, giving me hope for escaping with their freedom message...
Meadowmuse will be there with the grassy meadow...
Mark will be there in the distance marking the horizon...
Brian will be there maddening me having a  chat with the funny I...

well you get the idea, name one or all, and the entire passions family will be there...

but there will be Five 'I's alone with the ME I stranded ALONE in the 'I's-LAND...

...
ha ha ha ha

ha ha ha ha

don't you get serious with me, for I have firecrackers in my belly... oops wrong joke wrong time.. time to disappear...

regards,
HAVE FUN,

and they ALL know who they are!

Ok..shh..don't breathe a word of this...I would like all of you to invite a newbie over to this thread! I thought the popularity of the Survivor show would interest some of them. So for the next few days as you are replying in any other forum, please reference this 'survivor' thread. Let's get everyone involved in the discussion forums!!

Thanks guys (and I'll post my 5 choices later - and it has to be only 5, that's part of the challenge of it! )

What a terribly hard question!!

Hmmm....

Let's see, I'd prolly choose:

Sharon:  Cause she's such a kind-hearted person, and she's also the Idea Lady!  This amazing gal can come up with the coolest ideas, so anytime there's a problem or we're all bored...Sharon's there to save the day!

Chris:  Comic relief.  He's actually really funny looking in person.    Okay, no seriously, cause he's a cool cat, a blast to hang out with, and *gasp*, I actually like his company.

XAngel:  Cause I know this fantastic girlie would find some way to sneak not only coffee on the island...but an espresso machine as well (AND find a place to plug it in!).

Sunshine:  Cause she has SUCH a sunny disposition!  

and last, but certainly not least..

Ron:  I'm going to snag LoveBug's reason and also add that he's always as fair as he can possibly be.


Okay, that was hard!  I have so many others that I thought of as I was trying to come up with only 5.  I hate leaving people out, yanno?  I think that here at PiP, we have our own Passionate Survivor's Island! (Minus the rice, fruit, and veggies)

Shoot, I didn't watch this show...but the fact that I could have a bunch of REAL friends around me...too much to pass up. So instead of dropping them off as losers, here's my pick as winners:


OK, Day 1. Ron - as the creator, how could he not be first choice?

Day 2. Chris - I mean, a better devil's advocate? [Hey, even tho it's a tropical island, that doesn't mean life would be a bowl of cherries...]

Day 3. Marge, for spiritual relief...of the best kind...

Day 4. Gotta have a storyteller...for those long nights...and besides, if 'Deer doesn't deliver, we can always use the meat.

Day 5. Long John...in case 'Deer ends up as meat.

Now, with this plan, that means it's quite possible we're going to lose one...and the way I got it figured out, Marge and me are on the winning end of this schtick, so if I need an alternative, it would have to be:

heh heh heh...tune in tomorrow, folks...

Yep this is hard! Let's see...

Sharon, because she's just a great person and fun to be with!

Toe cause he's a barrel of laughs...

Michael (Darkness), cause well dang it, I just ain't seen him in a long time!!

Shawna cause she's wild and crazy  

And we just couldn't leave Chris out, cause he's fun to pick on

O wait O wait I've got it!  I'll take five, Sharon, you take five others, Whtdove, you grab another five...[make sure they're men...] and if we get ALL the women to take five men, what will we have...ah heck, we'll have a community of Passions, so I elect to stay home in my AC'd house!

At first I thought Id do this challenge in poetic verse. Then thought better of it. Im sure some of my answers will surprise you and the reasons may surprise you even more! So, Im throwing caution to the wind and hoping I dont loose any friends (especially those I chose as my 5!)

Here they are in alphabetical order:


Abe since hes so young, he should still have that ethic to respect and mind his elders (sad to say I am his elder!). So Id ask him to get the firewood, maybe do some cooking (he works in a fast food restaurant do I see RatTacos in my future?) Hes also a lot of fun likes to stir up trouble and I think hed fall in with any wild scheme I would want to pull.

Chris I cant imagine being on this adventure without him! He makes me laugh and think and is such a genuinely nice guy that Id miss him if I left him behind. And hes so smart Im sure hed find a way to build a really secure shelter for us! He and Abe would keep me amused around the camp by telling great stories!

Craig Hes an outdoors kind of guy and he could do the hunting and fishing. I wouldnt even mind cleaning the stuff either! And though he tells everyone he cant write, I know he can, and Im sure he would be able to teach ME some stuff about poetry! And Id like to sit and talk history with him by the campfire. Hes got an amazing mind and an incredible sense of humor!

Jamie Prometheus Being a fireman will come in handy around the camp (dont forget your hose Jamie!). Besides if anyone gets hurt, Jamie is the guy to take care of us! (I bet Ill need artificial resuscitation a LOT!) He is also an outdoorsman and could probably teach me a lot about the local flora and fauna so there would have to be lots of long walks into the jungle. And hes a gardener and can do some carpentry between him and Chris, Im thinking Ill be real cozy in a nice split-level hut!

Ron Now did you think I wouldnt include the fairest, nicest most incredible man I know? I would love to explore his mind! And Im sure HE would be the first to start a fire on the island! (And remember we have a fireman so wed be safe!) Ron has done so much in his life that I would love to sit and hear all his stories. And maybe some of his computer knowledge would rub off on me (note: rub against Ron many times to gain computer skill! LOL)

And thats my listgee! Theyre all guys! Imagine thatat least Ill have SOME chance of getting some sack time! (sleep that is! Whatever were you thinking!    )

Sharon! We know what you were thinking...

But after reading yours I have to say, I wasn't thinking much of surviving I guess.
At least I could laugh my butt off....even though I'd freeze and starve!  
What better way to go than ROTFLMAO?


Roundin em up Sunshine! Get out of that A/C now and c'mon!!

First of all I should say that I did not watch any of the show whatsoever. That said, I think I would let everyone condemn 5 of the girls to be marooned with me rather than have them resent me for picking them....lol

Okay, this was fairly easy for me...First off...

Abrahm: He's my boyfriend and my best friend and I couldn't go on any adventure without him by my side!    

Erica: What would I do without my moderator/world dominator friend!  We must work together with Abrahm and destroy Chris's ego-based illusions yanno...  

Chris:  Whatever would I do without someone to be in constant battle with?  And I could always use Chris antics, because he keeps things awfully interestin...

Meadowmuse: Because she is a poetic Goddess in my eyes and I would relish every moment to learn from her.    

And Finally...

Ron: Because everyone needs a great person and great leader around!  


There are my choices!  And PS, what is the appeal of that show anyway?  I saw a couple episodes and just didn't get it...

Ok this episodes nominees are ....

Nan education- she could teach poetry workshops on the island and I'm sure I'd have time to learn many different forms of poetry

Lost Dreamer craftmanship (occupation? lol)- I'm sure she would come up with many island crafts to occupy our days

Ron Leadership - he always seems so level headed and gives well thought out answers and advice

Sven Romance- he always has such kind words for everyone and is a very caring person

Poet deVine Humor-Entertainment she always seems to find humor in things and can usually get people to follow along and join in the fun

IF ... it came to be ~
I'd choose to strand with me ~

Martie~
For her ability to fish.
And make hushpuppies !  
Then she'd write about each day's adventure so we'd be able
to never forget it if we were eventually rescued.

Lil' Lizzie/ESP~
For that youthful enthusiasm that would
be necessary to keep our spirits up !  

Karilea~
For we have done this before and survived,
so the skills are already in place.  

Liz Santos~
For her tender mothering skills so necessary for survival.  

And Balladeer~
Just cause he'd end up developing a
golf resort and then everyone would flock
to the island and we'd end up being rich and famous ! !  
Really cause he lights my fire !

Curling around myself, thinking swiftly, I have thereby reached the following conslusionary listing of conspirators for this extended expidition:

Nurse Cratchett:  Hey, I need someone to dole out pills, chase me with a broom, and clean up my...accidentals.

Dr. Moose:  So that Nurse won't be too lonely.

Justin Clan: Yep, all of em, for ya see, I secretly believe the clan is made up of one person who has mastered the idea of time-travel, thereby appearing through multi-dimensional rifts simultaneously, giving the illusion of there being more than one.

The Artists: Michaelangelo, da Vinci, and van Gogh.  Hey, if Vegas can have Elvis impersonators, this island can have people with psychotic delusions of grandeur.

Lady in Red:  For those cold nights.  I need a lap to keep me warm, and she knows just where to scratch....*shivers in antici --------------------------------------------- pation*

The Wizard: And you know who you are, ya big robe wearing pointed hat headed silly.  How else is we gonna get butterfly nets, hugme jackets, herring daiquiris, pills, flying monkeys, easels, and body paint? And mice, oodles of mice....veritable generations of meeses.....he da MAN!




The cat grins.
Slowly the grin vanishes
Until only the cat remains.
DOH!

Ok a hard one but here goes, sorry to anyone I left out but all things considered would you really want to be stranded on a desert island with me, and to those I brought along. Tough, I need the company.

1. Janet Marie, for her uplifting poetry, gentle spirit and also there is no way her muse could run away on a desert island plus here she could focus on writing poetry.

2. Christopher, we need logic, wisdom and clarity so Chris brush up on those things..LOL. seriously if anyone could get us of the island it would be Christopher, and if he fails as a leader we can always use him as a raft. LOL

3. Doreen Peri, we need someone to write rescue messages and document our adventures, also I could observe her writing and discover her secret for writing, I know she has special poetry powers.

4. Sudhir, for general wisdom purposes and camp fire chats and poetry as well.

5. PoutPrincess, I need another dark soul to relate to. Besides I am a sucker for red heads. That last comment might start a few rumours stirring, sorry pout.      

To anyone excluded from my list be grateful that I do not wish for you to be shipwrecked with me LOL and to those on my list sorry but I need the company, and sorry for crashing the boat and getting us stranded here. Please don't hate me...

I'd prefer to stay by myself.

If I didn't get my butt kicked off the moment I reached the island, that is.


Why ME???
