Also posted!

jack: EVERYONE LISTEN TO ME AND FOLLOW MY ORDERS
also jack: meh, i'll let eliza handle everything

also @HarryHardy just an idea if you want Susan to be sciencey and of use. There are only so many coconuts and random washed up water bottles on the shore that they can drink, so maybe she can engineer a solar still! It'll be pretty tough to do with the materials available, but not impossible.

here's a pretty good graphic that summarizes how simple it can be --

was I involved in a solar still project in college? maybe

I'm so sorry, but I'm going to have to sit this one out. Turns out, I need to make an account to get onto your discord. Also, I totally forgot we were doing this, and my parents want me to run an errand with them.

I'm really sorry for the inconvenience.

Okay, I literally posted about this yesterday, and a week ago, and you could have made a discord account then. We scheduled this at time and I spent a fair bit of time creating the server to accommodate you and Harry. Veer, Carina and I also spent a half hour getting the stream to work on Discord the other day.

In the future, please consider putting things on a calendar so you don't forget.

The Quiz

Moira is Mary Ann which tracks.

Possible episodes to watch in the future, we can spread this out--

There are three seasons total but I only have Seasons 1 and 2, it's okay though because no one is missing much with Season 3.

For sure as they all directly deal with their situation/leaving the island:

S1, Episode 8: Goodbye, Island
S1, Episode 12: Birds Gotta Fly, Fish Gotta Talk

(Season 2 is in color! I don't mind/kind of like black and white stuff, especially when S1 is the strongest overall IMO but everything feels/seems so vivid when you're used to seeing the characters in black and white)

S2, Episode 7: Castaway Pictures Presents
S2, Episode 10: Hi-Fi Gilligan
S2, Episode 19: Seer Gilligan

Maybe: Less directly relevant to us, but still fun episodes:

S1, Episode 6: President Gilligan
S1, Episode 18: X Marks The Spot
S1, Episode 21: Big Man on Little Stick

All our dreams can come true — if we have the courage to pursue them.

lol jack got skipper. called it

aaand THAT'S A WRAP FOR WEEK 5!!

me at veer's post: 👀👀👀

we decided on the discord channel today that we'll bring in veer's ghost a little earlier, so for the start of week 6, @Valkyria or @HarryHardy can lead off by getting spooked with the ghost! we'll play it by ear then

we're not ready to see 100% ghosts yet so when they look around, they might see a shadow at the corner of their eyes or hear eerie sounds, but not actually see them yet. think paranormal activity type stuff

Eee guys. I'm so sorry. I fell asleep. In my defense I only got one hour of sleep the other day because I was celebrating this festival. I thought I'd be able to stay awake but apparently not. Yikes...that was embarassing. I was literally woken up today by my mom questioning why I decided to use the laptop as a teddy bear. Yes I fell asleep on the keyboard. RIP

Too often we crave the extraordinary in life, without even learning how to cherish the ordinary first. Friend, I promise you this: if you can learn to take joy in the simple mundane things in life, the extraordinary will take care of itself, it'll be on its way, hurrying towards you. But if you skip the first part, it'll ever evade you.
