I got tagged by Momma for a meme. It goes like this:

"Your ship has sunk. You have, of course, been stranded on a deserted island. You have salvaged a copy of the King James Version of the Bible and a copy of the complete works of Shakespeare. Nothing else. “The very next day you find one of those Arabian Lamps in the sand. Of course, you rub it and, of course, a rather grumpy Genie appears. “‘Let’s get this straight - there is a recession going on. There are restrictions on the three wishes now. I don’t do water or air transport now so no boats, planes or magic carpets. As for electronics, forget it. There isn’t the infrastructure on this island. “‘I can let you have one book and I mean one VOLUME, one essential item and one luxury item. Now hurry up and make your choices, I have to get to those five other islands you are going nominate. "

First off, I'm going to switch it to a New American Bible - St. Joseph Edition (the Catholic bible). And, I also want to say, I'm thrilled to have all those works from Shakespeare. "Taming of the Shrew" is my favorite, followed by "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and "Romeo & Juliet". Not too shabby for a shallow, cleavage bearing hypocrite, huh?

After much thought, I decided my book would be a cookbook. This one looks good and handy:

It's "From the Earth: Chinese Vegetarian Cooking".

Then, for my essential item, it would have to be a big old pot. I'd need to boil water and cook whatever I could find, so a large pot like this would be most necessary:

Finally, for my luxury item, it would have to be a 10 gallon vat of moisturizer (with SPF):

(I know that's not a vat of it, but I couldn't find a pic for a vat of moisturizer. I'm going to rely on the genie to provide me with massive amounts of this).

I guess I need to tag 5 people. I'm going to tag:




Lisa (a new bud from down under - I know she doesn't like awards, but this is different and I'd enjoy her answers!)



Looking forward to the fall-out!


  1. Good one! I like the version switch on the Bible - it was the first thing I thought of too ;)

  2. I knew i was going to enjoy your answers! Well done!

  3. Oh jeezy creezy, why'd ya tag me?! :P

  4. Jeezy creezy my old boobeezy (meaning no disrespect to the lovely GingerMagnolia...I just liked her words and couldn't resist giving them a spin—there, I'm a word-stealing whore; weep for my shame), otherwise, I'm stoked to be picked for this one. As soon as I started reading the beginning I was all: Oooooh, what a great question.

    I'm going to mull it over for the day.

    For the record: Freddie Mercury's dick will not be one of my items (though it's hugeness truly was legendary according to the Freddie doc I just watched, which was shot from a gay perspective). Post cremation, the thing would be good to no one. Hell, who am I fooling. I'm all chick and even in death his schwang would likely feel no wang for the parts I've got to offer.

  5. PS: Tell TET I'm saying 20 Hail Strunk & White's for that comma fault on "it's" when it clearly should have been "its."

  6. Um, that would be an apostrophe. I slink off in grammatical and word-stealing whore shame.

  7. Don't you need a knife for slicing and dicing all those vegetables you're going to cook?

  8. I see now! The moisturizer was a good thought! On an island, that could almost be considered essential rather than luxury!

  9. Can the luxury item be a person ;) or does it have to be an object? Or can it be a person you plan on treating like an object?

  10. Good answers, love. I enjoyed the read as usual. :D

  11. This is a good one!! Great answers!

  12. I like Ron's question.

    How are you ever going to get a tan if you use all that sunblock?

  13. I like your answers. The cookbook and pot are great ideas!

  14. yes, i will do this one for you my angel xx

  15. Bible change... good idea! I would have begged and pleaded for an ipod touch... I mean, he's a genie right? He could make it happen ;~)

  16. I'd wish for another genie lamp without restrictions...

  17. I *loved* that you changed the Bible to the Catholic edition...we need that Imprimatur, darn it.

    I'll have to think about this.
