QOTD Wednesday August 24

Post  Maggie on Wed Aug 24, 2011 5:36 pm

Happy Wednesday! Hope you're all having a great week so far. *hugs*

QUESTION: If a genie appeared and offered you 3 wishes (money or reality don't matter-- they can be magical things!), what would you ask for?

Last time I checked, genes don't grant wishes--they sometimes curse us, though, lol. But if we're talking about genies, then alright. XD (That's what you get for posting a typo on a writer's forum. Razz)

I always say I'll ask for more wishes as my third wish, but taking things seriously...

1.) I want to live in Narnia during the reign of High King Peter, but with computer/internet capabilities.

2.) I want the ability to talk to/order around animals. That way, I can have conversations with my cat while simultaneously ordering a spider to bite itself until dead. Twisted Evil

3.) I want the ability to transport my thoughts into beautifully written, perfectly formatted books on my computer without the hours of agonizing over whether I should use 'walked' or 'strode'. lol, I've never had trouble deciding between those words in particular, but you get the idea. Smile

So...that's it. I'm rather low maintenance. Razz

Lol, Amanda....

Anyway, my wishes, excluding a wish for more wishes:

1) The ability to teleport--I would never be late for anything ever again, wouldn't have to waste money on gas, and could go wherever I wanted whenever I wanted. (Then I could teleport and join Amanda in Narnia during the reign of High King Peter. Razz)

2) The ability to fly--similar to teleportation in that it would get me places quicker, but I'd want it just because it would be awesome!

3) Limitless wisdom--I would then know how to write/edit in a way that would be best and know what my cat was saying through logic. Basically, I'd be awesome. Razz

I think my wishes are practical. Very Happy

It's geni--Yeah... What TEO said. Razz

1) I'd wish for never needing to sleep again.

2) Teleportation would indeed be nice.

3) The ability to learn things (like languages) instantaneously (or failing that, relatively quick and easily).

I think they are very straightforward and useful. Razz

Okay, if I'd taken this seriously, Constance, those would be my wishes. I wish I didn't have to sleep...SO MUCH MORE productivity. I was thinking about this several months ago, and that was one of my wishes, as well as teleportation/time travel, a la Hiro from Heroes. I don't remember what my third was...

@Amanda: I know, right? I'd totally be done with my books so much faster!

@Amanda *facepalm* *laughs* Careless typing FTW! I didn't even see it. O_O And those are AWESOME wishes. What would you do, though, when the kids grew up and returned to England??

@Renee *smiles* All I can hear is the genie in Aladdin. And I would SO want to fly!!

@Stephen *smiles* Powerful enchanter? What would you do as a powerful enchanter?

@Constance I like my sleep. O_o But maybe I'd wish to need a little LESS sleep. ^^ And DEFINITELY the languages! *dreams* If I could just wake up and speak French and Korean fluently, that'd be great.

And I see a teleportation theme. Razz

Oh, and my wishes... *forgot to do this*

1. I'd wish to have a shape-shifting superpower. That way if I wanted to be invisible, I could become a bookshelf or part of the carpet. And if I wanted to fly, I could become a bird or a fairy. And if I wanted to breathe underwater, I could become a mermaid. (Because who the heck wants to be a fish???)

2. I'd wish that sugar would be the healthiest substance on earth, so that you weren't healthy unless you had a good load of it every day. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

3. I'd hang on to that third wish for when I most needed it. ^^ And if for some reason I had to ask all three wishes at once, I'd probably ask for a car right now... or maybe for my scoliosis to leave.

*wants three wishes*

I like your wishes, Twin. Especially that shape-shifting one. Very Happy But see, I want teleportation so that I won't NEED a car. Then I could poof! And visit you anytime and be back in time for class. Razz

@Constance--Hiro was my favorite. I was always saddened when they made an episode without him. Sad

@Lizzy--I would live there for like twenty years, under their reign, and then probably do some Narnian-world traveling. As well as befriending a talking cat. Smile

@Amanda Aww. I think I'd like a talking horse. Shocked

@Twin True... that would be lovely. But if I could shape-shift, then I could just fly or something to meet you. Since I like to travel so much, I wouldn't want to just TELEPORT. It would be convenient, but too fast. I'd fly across the fields and rivers to Texas. *grins*

@Stephen LOL! That'd be nice. Razz

Fields of Texas, maybe... but we don't have many rivers. Creeks, sure! But "fields and creeks" doesn't have the same ring to it.

Such a fun question, Maggie. Smile

Mine would probably be:

1) The ability to read minds.

2) To be able to travel time to go back in history & live in different eras.

3) To be amazing at all things creative. Whether it be writing, painting, or photography, Smile

@Shahira Aaackk, awesome choices! Time travel WOULD be so amazing. I'd just relieve and relieve my favorite memories of MY life, as well as go explore all my favorite eras! Very Happy Very Happy
