Marooned

6 reasons why you would be doomed if you were stranded on a deserted island all by yourself is the writing prompt from Momdots Small Talk Six on Saturday

At first I was thinking, really, 'This is a bad thing?' then I realized I'm no Brook Shields and I wouldn't have a Chris Aktins with me

6) no internet I would die right then and there

5) I'm not crafty like the professor so I couldn't make a fishing pole out of sticks with banana leaf bows and a spider spun web line

4) Fear of the 'Lord of the Flies' coming to eat me-those boys are scary!

3) I don't know how to make Fire or the difference between low tide/high tide or what the moon phases mean

2) Bugs, snakes, animal sounds from the jungle *shivers*

and the number 1 reason I'd be doomed: the coconuts don't come in size D

I would make Madonna's 'Swept Away' look like it deserved an Oscar

My confession for today: Amybo I LOVE you and the new look you gave my blog!

  10. Ha - coconuts!! I've never thought about the size of them before-but I'm with you, I would have trouble finding something appropriate to wear on the island!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I think that I would do ok on an island! I am sure that I would try to sneek a peek at your coconuts! lol!

  13. Love the new look as well!

    On a desert island - yea, the snakes, bugs, etc. would not work for me either!

  14. LOVE the new blog look, too! (You just pour those D's into a C coconut...like a push-up bra!)

    ReplyDelete
  15. The new blog look really is awesome. I'm with you, no internet, I'd be dead right there.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Your new blog look is great, but I liked the old one too. lol.
    I would never be able to make it on an island without some comforts of home. I see those people on Survivor and know I couldn't even do that for a week, much less a month.

  17. Coconuts don't come in size D...that totally cracked me up!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. First off, the site loos great!

    Secondly, you are too funny. I'm jealous of your need for Sized D coconuts. I'm pretty sure clam shells would be all that I need.

  19. I am so liking the new blog look.

    You mean to tell me that you would be wearing coconuts? If you were the only one on the island, there'd be no need, right?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Great look here.

    I guess it would be like Survivor huh. I probably would do fine except for the bugs...and Snakes!!!! Yikes!!! Hate snakes. Now Christoper Atkins...yeah, I could go with little cutey-putey...

  21. I'm with ya sista friend! Me no do deserted islands! And hey, you'd have to crack open the coconuts before you could even use them to cover your girly bits. If you can't make a fishing pole, how are you going to make a machete?

    Justine :o )
    P.S. The blog is totally adorable! But what about your love of hearts?

  22. Love it--I wouldn't make it out there due to no Pizza Hut, Target or toilet paper!!!!!!!

  24. I'm right there with you on the internet.

    Oh, and GET OUT OF HERE with your cute new blog design. It looks fantastic! I LOVE IT!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Ok, the coconuts would actually be an improvement for me. Otherwise, I'm with you for all the reasons mentioned. Bugs... eek. I'd be a little freaked about not having air conditioning.
    I love your new blog look! Makes me want to get my spirographs out from the good ole days.

  26. It is true that us girls have to think of fashion first! We have to look good for the person rescuing us!
    The blog looks great, it reminds me of those spiro things I used to do as a kid!

    ReplyDelete
  27. You know. I don't think I could make it without the internet, either. I think that bothers me a bit.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'd be dead. It's really quite simple.

  38. Darling just checking in to see how you are doing? I hope life is treating you marvelously. Mine was a bit topsy turvy of late, but is slowly returning to normal.

    I missed the creativity and the bonding with good friend such as yourself that blogging offers. I truly missed you and I look forward to your visits!!

    Love & Hugs

  44. ROFL! @ #1. I'd have to concur, and since becoming preggers, I'd need those coconuts in a DD!!!
