What If?

What if....

1. were stranded on a deserted island, name one person you would chose to be stranded with. What would you do to survive?
I am not sure I would want to be stranded with anyone in particular. If I couldn't have all the kids then I wouldn't pick just one of them as they would be better off together. It sounds a bit odd I know but I wouldn't want my husband to be there either as I am sure we would pretty quickly drive each other to running into the surf weighted down with rocks. We love each other but there are limits. I would actually prefer to taker Peri (my Tonkinese cat) who isn't human but who I believe would be the best company.

2. could have one superpower, what would it be?
To be able to fly. What freedom as well as the opportunity to see things from such an amazing perpective, kind of like God being able to look down on us. If I could fly I could be near people and watch over them and maybe protect them from things without them knowing.

3. could bring one character from your favorite book to life, who would it be?
well I guess It would be Mr Knightley from Emma, but he probably wouldn't fall in love with me so that would be a waste. So I would then go for Hedi because I think she'd be a really cool friend to have around. It's hard to choose. I would also like Milly Molly Mandy to be my own little girl. could solve one of history's unsolved mysteries, which would it be?
The Marie Celeste, as a sailor (albeit land based) it makes perfect sense. I would love to know what happen to the crew of that ship.

Thanks to Melody for the meme which I saw at her blog and thought was a pretty cool idea for this weekend. I am seriously busy this weekend teaching the naval reserves instructional techniques. It's intense but worthwhile. I did try to knit but the breaks are fairly short so that we can get a lot crammed in adn it was a bit dissatisfying to just knit two rows before going back to class. Never mind it is the school hols and I have three days off in lieu of the weekend and then I'm going to work at home. I love the flexibility of the navy.

Pups all happy and healthy.

Great list. I'd love to be able to fly! In fact, it's something I've always wanted to do. :)

Thanks for visiting my blog, Alison. Glad you decided to play this meme... 'Randomness' comes with a new question every weekend, what fun. Do drop by my blog often. :)

Oh heck I hope your husband didn't read this! LOL. Actually have to say that if I couldn't be stranded with the whole family I'd be unable to pick just one member too and the cat seems like a pretty good bet - maybe he could catch me mice to cook!

I enjoyed reading that. Husbands can be quite annoying so quite agree!.
