There are only three types of plants on the island. What three types of plants would you most want to have?


Without thinking it through too thoroughly yet, I'd go with orange trees, snap pea vines, and potato plants.

I'm very tempted to ask for cantaloupe, but I think I'd need the above three for different vitamins and textures.

Coconut trees (because of the movie Castaway alone)
Some sort of nut tree/bush/whatever (for much needed protein)
Whatever strawberries grow on

You are aware that a specific potato seed can and is fatal to humans if digested?

I would have to go with hemp, papaya, and coconut.

The hemp will provide nearly everything I need to make clothing, rope, satchels, sandals, food, and even get me high on those groovy lazy days.

Papaya is a fine sourse of vitamins, and coconut will provide me milk and food.

To hear the shrill scream of the lowly potato plant as the ranchers rip their legs off is akin to hearing the victory cry of the one legged man at the ass kicking contest!

It was about 3 weeks ago actually. Everything of importance is moved, although I still have some crud stored elsewhere that I need to move eventually.

Am I glad it's over?

HELL YES I'M GLAD IT'S OVER!

Been really busy though. They fired my slow ass, dullard counterpart at work (finally ... the lazy bitch) and I've had to take up the slack. That entails working 6 days a week until they hire someone else (could take months :cuss: ) and putting in tons of long hours. I'm currently on pace to work 116 hours this pay period. :banghead:

My first year working at Motorola we had a major problem that lasted for a few weeks. Spent quite a few 12 hour days... including both Sat & Sun. Working closely with a dude from IBM. Still remember walking out with him one Sat or Sun to go home and him commenting... "Hey, not too bad. Just working 'half days', right? 12 hours?"

Considering that I've done it while attending 7.5 hours of school, doing 1.5 hours of homework, and only having 5 hours of sleep just to get up at 5:45 and do it 5 more times in a row followed by one day of some rest and 6 more days of the same thing and sit in my chair here today to joke about it rather than complain about it...no, I don't think that makes anyone a "sniveling little girl".
