came for a cuddle
and needed a little bit of cheering up
so we sang an ode to Brian (I had to do the whistling, as she can't quite do that yet) (she's only ten) and then I showed her the desert island piece and all your comments
this is what she has to say (verbatim):
"I find your comments very intriguing. . . but maybe you should all do a little bit more thinking? (especially Mr Escape, with the gun and all) as the desert island isn't haunted; considering you'd all be there for a reasonable amount of time - AKA four or five years - you should consider clothes above coffee! I certainly would bring food above luxury, as I wouldn't exactly want to go swimming for fish everyday for my food, altho I do fancy the idea of a little dip in warm tropical waters - oh, that reminds me, I would probably have to pack 110 bikinis that would grow with me. . .
". . .and obviously a SkyBox (*sigh* Ed). . .
". . .thinking more about what I would like to do, it would be nice to bring a young and energetic kitten but it would be hard to keep it away from the water. . . (not a nice image of the kitten drowning!). . .
SP and a kitten
(I can't get the photo to turn the right way)
"I would like to stay 10 years old tho, rather than come out as a teenager - it wouldn't be nice getting old, and I wouldn't want to have teenage tantrums on my own. . .
(she's almost running out of breath! Ed)
"oh! and I want a tent with a nice warm duvet and pillow. . .
"I think my suitcase is going to be as big as Mr Shot's. . .
"going on about craig's idea, I would probably like to bring a big jar of anti-loneliness - or maybe the kitten could provide that? or maybe I could bring a fold-up mum and a fold-up dad? OK I think my suitcase is a bit over the top. . .
"and mel, going on at your coffee idea, I'm more into hot chocolate, but I like making it, so maybe a complete kitchen! do you mind if anyone would mind me sticking in a whole house? and a plane to get it there, instead of a suitcase cos I've got so much stuff to take? oh, and all of my clothes! and a tumble dryer, except the laundry would have to do itself as I'm not going to wash my own clothes. . . and a radio which is always tuned to Heart Breakfast and a stereo with all my favourite music on it. . ."
it did continue for a little longer,
but Ed edited it
(think SP's cheered up a little now tho!)
