maybe it’s me, but…


… say that you had a, umm, friend, who astonishingly passed a rigorous application process *WTF were they thinking?!* and was allowed on to a desert island where books and heroes reigned supreme.


Say that friend was given the opportunity to invite any eight fictional heroes she wanted to said island.

And, say that, besides the sexy, dangerous alphas (ie an incubus, a spy, a Chinese God, a mysterious duke, and a bounty hunter), she also chose an infamous Belgium detective, a hard-bitten copper, and, well, DEATH.

That wouldn’t be strange, would it?

My, err, friend shouldn’t feel vaguely embarrassed…

… should she?

    Hmmm. Did you friend provide you with a description of Death? Just 'cause I'm curious of course 🙂

  2. Kris says:

    My friend said you should have a look at this http://users.bigpond.net.au/Terrypratchett/Char_Death.htm and this ://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_(Discworld).

    Just, yanno, if you're interested and all, Orannia.

    OK, I admit, I thought Death was a strange character to choose for a desert island. Then again, I love Terry Pratchett's books and Death is my favourite out of the whole set of Discworld characters, so I can totally see why you (I mean, your friend) might pick him.

    Poirot? Um, well he could add some well needed class to the proceedings.

  4. Kris says:

    See I, umm, she knew it would seem strange. Oh well. At least it will be interesting in her hut and not as testosterone-y as some other's. 😉

    I totally understand how you( sorry i meant your friend), would pick Poirot. I love him too. There is just something hot about a man with a brain… Hey if Henry the eighth can look that good in The Tudors, then Poirot could look that good too way back when? Right?
    Suzi.

    Mmmm, I admit that I was a little stunned when I read that you, SORRY, your friend, said death, however I can remember how much you have always liked – should that read loved – the character.

    And Poirot, how could you not like him. Did you put Darcy into the mix? What about the Bastion Club?

    MMMmmm Prague, nice boys here too.

  7. Kris says:

    Thank you, Suzi. I feel less like a dick now. And you are so totally right – Hercule rocks. Could be his intelliegence, the OCD in me and/or my love for art deco, but I think Hercule is attractive now. Ok, perhaps I do have a problem. LOL.

  8. Kris says:

    Suzi: I meant my friend finds him attractive, of course.

  9. Kris says:

    Mumma, I'm sure there is some rule that you shouldn't be dissing me, umm, my friend when you're not even in the country.

    Darcy was already taken. 😦 But I did get Dalziel from the Bastion Club. 🙂

    Stop bragging about the fact that you're perving in Prague. That's just plain mean.

  10. Tam says:

    Mumma!!!!! In Prague, my old stomping grounds. Isn't it beautiful? And not just the pretty boys. LOL Hope you are having fun.

    Now to the topic at hand, I snorted when I read Poirot, but really with all that testosterone flying around there's bound to be a murder sooner or later and he might come in handy. Variety is the spice of life though. You don't want 8 guys who all look/act the same, so I'd say your friend made some wonderful choices. 🙂

  11. Mumma J says:

    Hi Tam

    Yes indeedy, Prague is fabulantastic!!! Just letting you know that I have just come in from a city tour in an 8 seater vintage (1922) open car! WOW, what a nice time for perving on beautiful bods!

    Hey Sissy, Je suis impressed!

  12. Tracy says:

    After reading Death's description I can see why he might appeal to you, um, I mean, your friend. He likes cats and he rides a horse names Binky. Nuff said.

  13. Kris says:

    Tam: “I snorted when I read Poirot, but really with all that testosterone flying around there's bound to be a murder sooner or later and he might come in handy.”:

    Exactly! My friend thinks you rock for liking her choices. 🙂

    Mumma: Where are the pictures of the pretties for the blog?? We could call it “the Mumma's whirldwind perving tour of Europe”. LOL.

    Tracy: Right on. How could I, err, someone not love a hero like that.

  14. orannia says:

    Ahhh, Terry Prachett. I haven't read him for a while.

    And yes, it will be interesting in her island hut 🙂

  15. Kris says:

    Terry Pratchett is God.

    She thinks it will add a certain… je ne sais quoi to the island.
