Am trying to be a blog talker

have joined


Which offers a weekly post to talk about!

this Week:
If you had to spend a year on a deserted island with any five bloggers, who would you choose and why?
I thought this would be easy, but I don't want to offend anyone I leave out - if you're not here then just assume I really wanted you in but I was being kind by not stranding you on an island with me for a year....

For those I am including, please don't think I want to torture you for a year or anything.

I won't say too much, but here they are.

Firstly
Dr John. Wise, funny, likeable, witty. He could keep us all amused all year with stories of Pigeon Falls, and perhaps we could put together a whole train layout using coconuts.

Next
Jem. Bit of a cheat to include him, but have known him for years, he may not blog very much but he continues to be both one of the most sensible and one of the most completely crackers individuals I know.

Third
Brian. New to the blogosphere, but again an old pal, he may be rude and disrespectful but,
um...,
that's it...,
he's rude and disrespectful.

But hey ho, everyone needs a bit of that sometimes. (Though I did feel I had to tell him off for his post on dryer balls!!!)

Fourth
Jenny ha ha. Crazy name, crazy woman. Actually, that's not true - in fact considering all the stuff she goes through (a search for 'duct taping diapers' might yield a number of hits at flaw and disorder, Jenny's blog) she is astoundingly sane, and very funny. I am intrigued as to where she managed to get a picture of pooh saying 'I {heart} you'

Fifth
Now this is the most difficult, because by doing this I am excluding a load of people who i would love to take as well, but it comes down to Jeff because he is, funny (a recurring theme) but also clever and theological. We would probably disagree on loads of stuff, and agree on loads of stuff, but deciding which is which would be fun and educational (for me, at least).

I wish I could take pretty much everyone in my sidebar, but some of them I don't yet know well enough, others I like reading but I might drive them mad, or they might drive me mad. I need a bigger boat to get them all to this darned island with.

There is a new blog talk post tomorrow, but you can visit today and find out what it's all about. Also at the top of my blogging links in the sidebar (at the bottom) there is a new blogroll for the blogtalker types.

Oh my -- only five? There is no way I am doing this on my blog. I would, of course, happily pick OC -- but then I'd have to pick my family members, and tick off my friends - -or I could pick my friends (who I'd likely prefer), but my sisters would get riled .... oh no, you can keep this one. Thanks.

Trust me, you don't want me with you on a deserted island for a year. You might as well make room for someone else.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwww! Thank you for choosing me!!!! I would reveal where I got my picture of poo, but then I'd have to kill you. It's not worth it. You're awesome!!!!
