Elevators

Over the past few days I've been throwing away old magazines to make room for those arriving in 2012. As I went through the different places where I store them I found this booklet from a previous job I had where the company asked its top creative minds a number of questions and before I knew it I had spent a good 30 minutes laughing at people's responses.


The question I like the most was "If you were to get stuck in an elevator, who would you like to be in there with you?" The responses were varied but many of them named their family members and other their favorite artists and even politicians... but the best ones were on the lines of: "a claustrophob, so I can monitor the hysteria process", "why do I have to get stuck in an elevator?", "an elevator technician so I can get out of there as fast as I can", and finally a friend of mine said "George Clooney, se wa can talk about Como, wine and movies" and 2 weeks later she saw him at an airport!


So in the spirit of fun and getting ready for the weekend "If you got stuck in an elevator, who would you like to be in it?"... My pics today would be the people I've been wanting to work with so I can get that much desired job once and for all!


Have a great day and be careful... ha!

  1. I have dreams in which 'I'm stuck in elevators that either streak up sky high or plunge to the bottom. So for me the issue is not so much the company in the elevator as the elevator itself.

  5. A good book and a great bottle of wine could make me survive a few hours in that last glorious elevator!!

  8. I love questions/games like this. Pretty fun conversations to start at a dinner party... anyway, I think I would want to be stuck with my sisters. We keep each other entertained especially in stressful situations. Or if they're not avail, then a cute boy would be fun too.

  9. People? I would want to be stuck in the elevator with FOOD... and a word-find book. That'd be good enough for me

  10. Oh boy! I think I'm going to take the stairs today!!! LOL :)

    Love this idea. I think I'd want to be stuck with J and that's pretty much it. I want all the room I can get and she'd be able to calm my nerves :) xoxo

  11. I would definitely have to say my boyfriend, Kevin. For a number of reasons, 1st because he and I can always make fun out of nothing and I know we would just sit in the corner; cuddling and talking while we waited to be rescued. And 2nd because I know I would be FREAKIN' out and he's always calm and has a way of keeping me calm! - Fun post!

  12. Good question! Hmmmm, I'd love to get stuck in an elevator with a book agent. That way, I could pitch them my proposal. ;)

  13. I am mildly claustrophobic so the thought of getting stuck in an elevator totally freaks me out. I'd pick my husband cause he would be able to calm me down.

  14. Is it cheating if I say my husband? :-)

    ReplyDelete
  15. I think a good follow question might be 'what kind of elevator would you prefer to get stuck?'. Mine would definitely be the third one, the really glamorous old school one...!

    ReplyDelete
  16. that really is a good question. and i am loving these pictures.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I guess I wouldn't mind being stuck in an elevator so much if the person I was with had a sense of humor about it and the elevator had a bathroom {what if I had too much water or coffee before getting on?}.

    Good luck getting the job you are hoping for! These days job hunting is not. fun. at. all.

  18. Oh boy, that is tough. I'd say a comedien or maybe Jude Law? I like the idea of it being someone who could give me an awesome job (wish I knew what that was!)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh this is funny...and hard. The President maybe. Or Clive Owen. Ha.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Fun pics and fun question.. I would have to say my hubby :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm going to have to steal your answer. How many times have I wished I could run into someone who could advance my career and get just 5 minutes? I could spend hours in the elevator with no stress if this was the case:)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I think I'd have to pick my best gal pal because we'd probably find a way to get out or at least have a lot of fun trying!

    ReplyDelete
  23. My husband. Hands down. We'd have the most fun together.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Would that I lived in a building with a such a stunnin elevator (the last image). Mine isn't half bad but it's certainly not old hollywood glam.

    ReplyDelete
  25. If I could get stuck in an elevator with anyone, it'd have to be... My best friend/maid of honor! I'm in the middle of wedding planning, and I know we'd use the time to brainstorm/organize details for the big day. :)

  30. After a few minutes of being stuck in an elevator I would likely start to freak out from imagining all of these horrific things that could go wrong and happen so I would definitely need to be stuck with someone to keep me calm.

    I love the photos. They are lovely.

  41. What a great topic of conversation... I have not idea who I'd like to be with. Maybe Ellen ...laughter in that type of situation is the best medicine.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Haha I love these photos. Hmm I guess I'd wish macgyver was in there too so he could get me out!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Excellent way to start the conversation.... so interesting! I don't know!Other than my bf, perhaps one of the members of Ocean's 11; they seem to know how to get out of elevators quite well! lol :-)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'd love get stuck all by myself, and relish the opportunity to just sit there and do absolutely nothing, enjoy the moment of solitude... Eventually I'd get rescued hopefully by a crew of handsome firemen... Love your blog. noe at www.hotcelebration.com

  45. Lol what a fun post, but I would probably be the claustrophobic person having a meltdown!

    ReplyDelete
  46. My husband because he always makes me laugh when I am in nervous situations!

    ReplyDelete
  47. lol oh that's great. I love that she saw Clooney not long after! Did they get to have that chat? ;)
    Hmm aside from my fiance, or an elevator electrician because that's a smart one, I'd have to say Rowan Atkinson acting as Mr.Bean, cause I could just imagine the amazingly funny/crazy things he'd do to get out of there.

    ReplyDelete
  48. The Clooney one is hilarious - can't believe your friend actually met him then.
    For me, the answer would be either my hubby or my family for sure! hahaha :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. uhmmmm that's a hard one, I'm wavering between my best friend and Ryan Gosling ;)

    ReplyDelete
  50. What a fun idea! I think I'd say elevator with Zac Efron... Mmmm, yes, please!

  58. I would pick MacGyver - he could get us out of there with a banana and a paper clip! lol!

    ReplyDelete
  59. My husband. It would be a great time to work on starting our family. :)

    ReplyDelete
  60. What a fabulous question! I asked my husband, and he said "you" (meaning me, I said that's boring, then he said "okay, Karl Marx or Nelson Mandela or maybe Indra Ghandi) I'd probably love to be stuck in there with my sisters!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Elevator with Daniel Craig is my first thought but i think i prefer someone more intellectual and "posh" so Clive Owen is the perfect man to stuck with in an elevator. I like your idea of this post.
    Sending you lots of love and kisses my dear.
    Best regards
