1.  If you could only have one book with you, what would it be?

 Is there a book called How to Build a Seaworthy Boat? If not then I’d probably have one of John Irving’s books, like A Prayer of Owen Meany. He’s my favourite author and I never tire of rereading him.  

2.  What one luxury item would you want to be stranded with? 

The best pillow on the planet. It’s one thing to play Robinson Crusoe but I love my sleep and would be very put out to have to lay my head on coconut leaves.  

3.  What is the one practical item you would want to have with you to use? 
I suppose I should say a knife, though I’m not much of a hunter.  

4.  Would you enjoy the solitude, even briefly, or would it drive you crazy

I would absolutely enjoy the solitude, for awhile. Assuming there was no risk of death, or spiders, I’d love exploring a deserted island. 

5.  If you could be stranded with one other person, who would you want it to be? 

My boyfriend. He’s also my best friend so it’s a two-for-one deal there. Though I’d hope that he’d also get asked that question and would bring someone practical, because between us we’re ill-equipped for survival. We’d have fun as we starved to death though. 

6.  What modern technology would you miss the most? 

I should think a refrigerator. 

7.  What food or beverage would you miss the most? 


8. How many days do you think you would cope without rescue? 

I’d be panicked within the hour and talking to myself within a week.  

9. What is the first thing you would do when rescued? 

Thank my rescuer. 

10. What would be your first Tweet or Facebook update upon your return?

“That’s the last time I fly a budget airline”
