My answer is based purely on my current expenses and the balance of what I consider my e-fund.

Since we're talking expenses and lengths of time, I assume the question is related to being unemployed or unable to work... in either of those cases two additional factors would come into play:
--> 1) Some alternate (temporary) income would kick in (severance/unemployment/disability)
--> 2) My expenses would drop (I would not be going out weekends, not be commuting, not be paying for lunches at work, would likely drop a few other expenses as well).

So in reality my answer should be 50-100% more time then I chose...
