  1. #1 'Lost' Wednesday! 
    It will be partly cloudy today with temps in the 70s and possible thunder showers in the afternoon. I'm going to nag Mr. Snaps into setting up my chicken grill for kebabs tomorrow.

    TOTD: CU has been transported to a large desert island. We will be rescued eventually (so your behavior, good or bad, will come out) but until then, we are on our own. Assume the island is large and has a wide variety of terrain and resources.

    Who is doing what and why? Who has mad skilz? Who has previously unknown (or under-appreciated) skills that would be handy? What kind of community projects would get done first?

    Keep it fun, inclusive, and family-friendly. ;) :D

    I can cook. What I don't understand is why I'd be traveling with a group of you guys in the first place.

    I figured you'd travel with servants.:D

    You were probably some kind of a war prize during an epic battle between CU and
    the Martha Stewart Living discussion forums. :p

    In such a war, my money would be on the Stewartians.

    Don't be so quick to dismiss the skills of people who enjoy blowing things up on purpose.

    And the other side can knit their own trebuchet slings.

    You're just demonstrating why the Stewartians would simply become serfs on the Island. Animal fiber has way too much stretch for that kind of application. You'd want woven goods.
