This Ain't Fantasy Island

This from Bud:

We found this gem the old-fashioned way. We googled it. Not this title, it came last. We hate to use memes from other sites. There are a lot of places that regular generates questions via a program or app (and are they really different things? We do ponder life’s mysteries late at night!) The thing is that Kwizgiver did it and we we’re none the worse for it. In fact, I think it helped us. (Of course, you are included.) As far as Stealing goes, I really thought I’d just wait a couple of weeks and then attempt to pass it off to the next thief.  But a funny thing happened. I really enjoy doing this and many weeks it’s all I do. In a "doing the questions" thing.
Not that any of this matters to you, but WTF, you can skip ahead. In fact I 

imagine most of you did. Prove me wrong and add a comment by just saying “I read the stupid stuff." The long winded point is this: I got this meme site, now defunct shockingly, because all they did were memes “If you were stranded on an island…” and it was called The Ships Meme. Even I couldn’t make this shit up. They didn’t last long so we just stole some random questions and gave them a name. Our original title was “The Gilligan Island Questions” but then we figured that those of you were too young or would think it was about the show. So sorry, we won’t ask the Ginger or Maryanne question. So, for the first time this year of 2017 (get this - it is our 50th Anniversary Year of WTIT), I will raise my glass of Smirnoff and toast!

Cheers to all of us thieves!

Sunday Stealing: The Shipwreck Questions

You are shipwrecked with friends (your group can include real life or virtual life or both) think about it and picksome friends to truly enjoy your cruise +  and tell us why you assembled the group by just telling us...

Who would throw the wildest parties, and why did you pick them?

At this point in life, I wouldn't be choosing anyone based on their wild party skills, but I'd bring my friend, Fran, because she's very outgoing and fun to be around, but not wild.  Sorry.

Who would always fall asleep on the couch, and why did you pick them?

That would be my husband, but I'd bring him because, well, he's my husband and I love him and all that.

Who would enter to be in a talent show, and why did you pick them?

Maybe my husband's youngest sister?  She used to be a pretty good singer.  I can't think of anyone else.  My friends and family are totally not the talent show type.

Who would try to get out of doing their chores and why did you pick them?

That would probably be my daughter.  We have had more words over the years about just that.

Who would accidentally set the kitchen on fire whilst cooking and why did you stupidly pick them?

That would either be my husband or my daughter.  Both are horrible about putting stuff on the stove or in the oven and not setting the timer or getting busy with something else and not paying attention.

Who would try to domesticate an island pet and why did you pick them?

Maybe my friend, Helen.  She has just about one of every kind of animal now...dogs, cats, rabbits, chickens, goats, minature donkey, chinchillas, bearded lizard, ball python...

Who would make the other carry their bags on a shopping spree and why did you pick them?

That would be Fran again.  She takes her hubby along on lots of trips to carry the bags.  She calls him her "mule."

Who would throw the first person of the boat and why did you pick them?

Ric, who always says he doesn't really like people.

Who would be the best caregiver when someone got sick & why did you pick them?

Michelle.  She always wants to make things better.  She is completely unselfish.

Who would try to force the another to play sports with them & why did you pick them? 

I can't think of anyone that competitive. 

Who would have the best holiday ideas for your space on the island and why did you pick them?

Fran again, but I'd come in a close second.  We both have great ideas and vision, but she tends to put it into play while I don't really do as much.
Who would need to clean out someone others stuff to make room for their own & why did you pick them? 

That would be Dee.  The woman does not travel light.

Who worries about how they will look when they’re older & why did you pick them?

That's Dee again.  She is my age, but tells everyone (even her own daughter) that she is 38.  She hates everything about getting older.

Flashes everyone when they walk by after taking a shower alone & why did you pick them?

Yeah, I don't have any friends who would do that.

Who wakes you to asks weird questions in the middle of the night & why did you pick them?

My daughter.  I swear every single phone call from her begins with "I have a question" and she's a night owl.

Who will constantly ask you “what are you thinking about?” & why did you pick them?

My husband, just to annoy me for kicks.

Which of your friends on this island might being too touchy-feely while you interact, why did you pick them?

I don't have any friends like that, either.  I hate it when people who are not my immediate family or best friend crowd into my personal space just to talk.  My husband has a relative who could never talk to me without putting her hand on my arm and being six inches from my face.  Her husband is even worse.  He feels the need to try and kiss me every time he sees me.  I tend to feel the need to plant a knee...he's kinda pervy.


  1. Sorry about this one. I did pick a stinker. I try to find something different and wound up with something incredibly stupid. I apologize and promise to find a great one for next week! Thanks for trying which is more than I did...

  2. I blew this one off, so glad you made a stab at it. I enjoyed reading your answers!!

  3. I had fun with it, but then I am weird like that.

  4. hope that gal lives on a farm or something where she can enjoy her pets and they can enjoy their space as well
