An Elevator Meme


Definitely not with them

From my previous post, Zetty asked : "Did u ever wish u r stuck with somebody else in the elevator other than the chinese lady and the tudung girl?"

And I was like, Hmmmmm, good question.

It would have been easy if I would have gone down the sexual route, and throw in Ms Jolie, Jessica Alba, or any olive-skin Brazillian model in there with me. Thoughts of I'm-going-to-die would have been converted into I'm-in-Heaven immediately. But if I had to decide only two people with me to be stuck in an elevator, to talk with for hours, who would they be? Siapa, siapa???

After tossing and turning in my bed and still thinking about it when going to work, I boiled them down into two : a blog writer and the other, a musician.

1. Dina Zaman

I went into the blog world really late, like only early this year. The only blogger whom I know (and whom I know in real life) was Khaylis. She coaxed me into having one, because "It'll be fun". I remember I was working on a business plan at work, when she emailed me the blog address, the username, the password she had created for me. Yeah, Laughing Matters would not have existed if it was not for Khaylis.

Anyway, I realised there were million other bloggers out there. Everyone seemed to be sharing their life stories, and I thought that was intriguing. Soon after, I asked Khaylis which blogger I should look out for, and she immediately said, "Dina Zaman. She's really famous, but sorry Muddy, she pulled her blog down sometime ago."

I remember feeling really crushed. I was like, who is she? What did she write about? Why did she pull her blog down before I could even read her writing?

A million to one questions I would love to ask her. Especially if she was stuck in the same elevator with me that day...

2. Lauryn Hill

I remember picking up her Miseducation LP and putting on X-Factor so many times that I wept. It was the most honest break-up song ever, and at that time, it touched me like no other song could.

If she was in the elevator with me, I would love to ask who was she referring to in that song? Was it Wycleff as it was rumored to be? And yes, why haven't she written a second commercial album? Die hard fans like me want to know why!!!

So, Zetty (and everyone else), those are the two people who I wished would have been stuck with me in that elevator that day. As for you, who would they be?

can i be stuck in an elevator with u?? hehehehe well i would choose someone i don't really know to get to know them better, someone i can hold an intelligent conversation with, someone who would be able to make my brain turn and think... and perhaps that would be u, judging from the way u write, of course. or then again, we might end up comparing friends to see if we have many in common. hehehe.

musician? how abt the corrs sisters? get them to teach me to sing sweetly and play instruments. that would be cool!

a fireman would be good. he would at least know what to do during emergency. basically the person whom i want to be stuck with in a lift should know what to do if the cable of the lift decided to snap and plunge the lift down the shaft.

oh, and the person should not have BO.

(i heard that lift passengers are advised to lie on the tummy should this happen).

yanz :

Hahahahah...with me? LOL. anyway, yeah, we probably would have tons of mutual friends. and we could even know our respective relatives (since you are from JB and all...hehehehe). Really hope to bump into you and Mods one day. :))

kepala angin :

Hahahaha, so doctors are under your fantasy list huh? ;)

the babe :

lie on the tummy? oh wow, does this reduce the impact? babe, i am simply amazed at how much general (and life saving) information you carry! You're like a walking enyclopdia (it's a huge compliment babe). ;)

Foxybabe :

Heheheh...Jude Law huh? Damn, I think he is too pretty for his own good. Muahahaha...and why does it sound like you are going to eat him up rather than talk to him? ;)

Annabie :

Hey babe!!! Miss you lah. ;) And hahahaha...that would be a cool ride to be stuck with them two. To add to the coolness, wouldn't it be awesome if you all were jamming, and someone was filming it into a video? A diving elevator scene would be awesome!

Chick Arse :

Oh god, I wished I had Cornell's voice!!! I always wanted that gruff in my voice whenever I sing, but it just sounds fake when I do it. *sigh* hey, how do you like their new album?

Wow, Lauryn singing that song would be awesome. A taste of heaven, I guess. ;)

Pojan :

Hahahah...the concept of this meme was to know who you would choose to be stuck with in an elevator (which would resume its functions after several hours of waiting). Bestfriends are cool. ;)

Mr and Mrs Smith huh? Wow, Mrs Smith sure looks hot hot hot! Youza!!! ;P

Theroadie :

Woi, only two dude! Choose two! hehehe...if you asks me to choose a local beauty to be stuck with, it would definitely be Camelia. *hehehehe*

Vlad :

Oh wow, she's hot! Hehehe...good thinking dude. Oxygen tank sharing sounds kind of romantic in a weird way...LOL!!!

Lissa Karina :

Hahahah...you're the second person stating that the person should not have BO. LOL!!! That important huh? Don't worry about me: always on guard. ;)

shobshob :

Hahhaha...such a cheater dude. You need to choose a person. heheheh...Where in the whole world can you find this lamp? In terengganu? Muahahah....:P

Dade Ghost :

Huhuhuhu...nak jaga reputation huh? Sanggup duduk kat lift sorang sorang? huhuhu...don't worry man. You're still the tough guy we know. :P

Shell :

Hehehehe...I think you are describing me lah! Hahah...just kidding. No, not too much at all. Some of the other peeps wanted magic lamp lah, people with no BO lah...everyone has their own fetishes. Heheheh...;P

To me, getting stuck in an elevator is always bad news, no matter with whom.

Tapi bolehlah nak tolerate, asalkan they all don't kentut or do anything silly like that.

After giving it careful thought, I would like to meet:

1)My grandfather (deceased)
2)Usri of KRU
3)Jesus
4)The Coen Brothers

But I would trade the choices in, if that meant that I would no longer be stuck in the elevator.

In case of me being stuck in an elevator:

1) The animal side of me would wish that it'll be one of those olive skinned brazilian models

2) The thinking side of me would want it to be Arundathi Roy so that we can take the moment to discuss the God of Small Things (my animal side can agree to a certain extent coz she's quite cute too)

3) My scientist wannabe side would want to spend some time with Newton to discuss the principia and how it may assist us in case gravity took hold of the elevator (plus the fact that he is a fellow Brother)

4) My angry side would just knock my head for taking that particular elevator and wish that Darth Vader is around

Blogger chick arse said...

Wow Kaisersoze!Arundhati Roy is sure one heck of a hip and opionated chic!Not only did she do wonders with her God of Small Things,but she actually makes political sattires seem...interesting!

And yeah Muddy,Cornell,long hair or short hair,with his sexayyy voice will def make me wish the lift will never b repaired.The new Audioslave ain't too bad eh?I personally liked Heavens Dead & Dandelion.

And Lauryn is what she is.Sensational

what's that movie jack black got stuck in the elevator with Tony Robbins? hahahah!

I'd choose Nabila or any other intelligent 4-5 years old kid.

If it's an adult, let's see... Az Samad and his guitar? *lol*

The Kimster :

Han :

Yusri from KRU? Muahahah...exactly what kind of conversations would you have with him? Ask him how in the world did he manage to wear leather pants? Is that it? Huhuhuhu...

And wow, Jesus would be awesome.

Kaisersoze :

Sifu, you're back!!! Huhuhuhu...

Oh wow, Darth Vader and Newton, or Brazillian woman (growl) and Roy. Hmmmmm...defintely the latter. Hehehehe...

Oh yeah, check out Yanz site. Apparently, she met up with Darth in Singapore. Boleh tak? huhuhu...Kill him!!!

Aeyya :

Oooooo, Sheila! Yeah, she can defintely sing. And yeah, what inspiring conversations you can have with Tun Dr M. One of the questions I would ask him is: "Can I ride in your cool car?" hehehe...

By the way, Ez is cool. Smsed her last weekend...

Nais :

Your "yesyesyes" made my mind wonder in the wrong direction! Huhuhuhu...this is perhaps after reading Mangolisa's post on her meetings with Terry. Go check it out!!! ;P

And hey, welcome back! Missed your comments. :))

Ewok :

Hey ewok, cool choices of people. 58 languages? That is sooooo insane. I can't imagine what are the 58 languages he knows. For me to truly master BM is already dificult. Does he know how to speak Malay?

Ooooo will look out for Nora Roberts. I had always found stories about witchcraft really fascinating. Even as a grown man, I like watching Practical Magic and even The Craft once in a while...hhuhuhu...(ok yes, for the women too...)

Inn :

Ooooo yeah, Nabila! She's sooooo smart, and sounds sooooo comel! When can Mangolisa introduce her to us, huh? ;))

Az Samad and his guitar? Ooooo cool. Meaning, you can also play the instrument? If you can, let's go jam one day.

Zetty :

hahahhaha...I could have given you "interesting" answers. But then again, this blog site could have easily be converted to a porn site. hahahahaha...

Mawi and Felix??? Woman, you are demam. LOL!!!
