View Full Version : Desert Island Question!

13-07-2004, 10:46 AM
Ok.. I want to learn more about eveyone as a person, not a CAD user. So I'm asking a golden oldie question.

You're going to a desert island. You have to take 1 item from each category with you, what do YOU choose!

Here's mine.

1. Person - My girlfriend Stacie.
2. Album - Rush of blood to the head, Coldplay
3. Book - The Hobbit
4. Personal Belonging - My Guitar
5. Comfort Item - My reclining chair!

Also assume that if you take an album you have the means to play it etc.

I'm interested to see what you all come up with. Please take 5 mins to answer this!

....Whilst all the ladies go to the toilet in clans and talk about whatever it is they talk about, we can all sit in architech's house to play on YosSa's x-box whilst drinkin CADMAN's beer. Fantastic! Saying as I havent contributed to this little party, I would get Stacie to knock us up a coconut sandwich or 2. Or whatever grub there was on the island.

Yes, and lets start an AutoCAD forum ....

LOL, yeh great idea.

29-07-2004, 09:56 AM

29-07-2004, 10:03 AM
No I don't think so :) ....its refreshing to talk about other stuff than just CAD, even if it is living on desert islands playing on an Xbox.... :lol:

Eddie, I don't think that is going to make through the metal detector?

You could mail order it when you land, perhaps?...
