What do you need on your "island?"

So we're on a faraway island, and we have to make some choices. It's been a long day inside with the kids, and I feel like getting away for a moment or two. Here is a list of choices for your island stay. You only can pick one from each group of three. I'm curious to see everyone's answers :) My answers will be in parentheses. Thanks for humoring me once again!


Music (I can't imagine a day without music.)

Food - my kids' suggestions

Pasta (Love my tortellini.)

Celebrity Dinner Companion - Your choice. I'm sure you will all go with an intellectual choice. Of course, I thought about my favorite shirtless screen star :)

HUGH JACKMAN (I may have an obsession!)


Apple pie
Chocolate brownies (No contest.)
Ice cream

Board Game - you will have a game partner

Scrabble (I could play a marathon session.)

Personal care item

Hair brush
Toothbrush and toothpaste (I need my minty morning breath.)

Thanks for playing along with this quick, impulsive game of mine. Hugs to you :)

I'll come to your island. My choices?
1) books
2) pasta
3) someone funny - Bill Cosby maybe?
4) brownies of course!
5) Monopoly
6) toothpaste

Jenn@the loves of jenn said...

I'd love to be on a far away island right now! :)
1) TV...this was a tough choice between music and TV but I figure if I have TV maybe I would get my cable music stations! :)
2) contest
3)Ryan word...yummy!
4)Ice cream!
6)toothbrush...nothing worse than bad breath!
This was fun!

Joanne said...

Okay, let me set up my island ...

1. Music, definitely.
2. Chicken, cutlets preferably.
3. Any NYT bestseller - we'll talk books.
4. Chocolate brownies.
5. Monopoly
6. Toothbrush

I'd like to put in an order for plenty of sunshine, too, and calm seas.

Jillien said...

1. BOOKS no contest
2. Chicken--love it and I can imagine its anything
3. Georges St. Pierre (google him... its worth it!)- we can wrestle and he can teach me jiu jitsu
4.Apple pie! Yummmy my favorite
5. Scrabble
6. Deodorant-- I can clean my teeth with anything on that island ie. oranges, but I smell like 400 pound sweaty man when I'm hot. Not cute at all. DEODORANT must!

Susan Fobes said...

Ok, here is my list:
1. Books (to "escape" with)
2. Pancakes (I get tired of chicken and pasta)
3. Hugh Grant or Collin Firth (It's a toss up-love the English accent...)
4. Apple pie (I surprised myself with this one...)
5. Monopoly (No one will play with me around here.)
6. And I have to have my tooth paste and toothbrush.

Anonymous said...

My answers would mirror yours aside from gnocchi as the pasta of choice and I'm gonna have to fight you for Hugh....... be still my heart! :O)

septembermom said...

Susan, Colin Firth is my very close second!! Love his Mr. Darcy!

The Write Girl said...

This is a fun game:

1. Books (for sure)
2. Pancakes (yum)
3. Johnny Depp :)
4. Ice cream
5. Monopoly
6. Toss up: Deodorant/toothpaste. (they are both essential)

Thanks for the game.

Eric J. Krause said...

This is a great idea for a game.

1. Books - not even a consideration here
2. Pancakes - especially if there's a wide selection of syrups!
3. Toss up between Stephen King and Kevin Smith - the conversation would never be boring with either of those guys.
4. Brownies - I don't think I could ever get tired of chocolate brownies.
5. Monopoly - It's always been one of my favorites.
6. Either Deodorant or toothbrush/toothpaste - Can't go wrong with either, obviously. The only wrong answer for me is a hair brush since I keep my hair shaved short--would be a waste for me. ;-)

Michelle said...

Books. Hands down, books. And lots of 'em.

Pasta. I think. Is sushi really not a choice?

Alton Brown!

I could go without dessert. Tossup between the brownies and apple pie. Eh.


Hairbrush. But I want a toothbrush, too.

Caitlin said...


1) Books, for sure!

2) Pasta!! (carbs, carbs, carbs!)

3) I would have to say Johnny (Depp) Easy on the eyes and I would love to pick his weird brain!

4) Scrabble! One of the few games I can win!

5) Toothbrush/toothpaste. I rarely brush my hair, and why would I care if I stink if I am on an Island (I'm sure Johnny is into natural women..) but if my teeth are scuzzy, I can't concentrate!

Woww!!!!!! Dear, You Are Tempting Me :(


Hi there is my list:
1: Music........can't live without it.
2: Chicken.......Helathy food better than red

over eat.
4:Ice Cream.....My favourite.
5:Scrabble......Love word games.
6: Toothbrush etc...Must have a healthy mouth.


Angela said...

1. Music-tough one, because I love books also. However, like you, I can't go a day without music playing.

2. Pasta

3. Maxwell-LOVE him and his music!

4. Apple Pie-hands down my FAV dessert!

5. Monopoly

6.Toothbrush and toothpaste

It's good to escape sometimes. This was fun, thanks!

T Rex Mom said...

Will your celebrity dinner companion also be joining you for board games? If so, I would opt for strip poker instead of the board games!

He & Me + 3 said...

my answers are all the same as yours but I would want to have dinner with possibly Chris O'Donnell.

Trudy said...

This was almost too easy!

1- Books
2- Pancakes
3- Johnny Depp!
4- Ice cream
5- Scrabble
6- Toothbrush

Gerri said...

Fun post! My choices:

1) books - I must read everyday
2) pasta - yum
3) Neil Diamond - I know, weird choice, but I'm an old fuddy duddy and I've loved him since I was 12.
4) if the ice cream is chocolate then I want the ice cream. If not, I'll take the brownies.
5) Scrabble
6) toothpaste

Thanks Kelly. This was fun!

Teresha@Marlie and Me said...

Entertainment: Television

Jenners said...

Oh ... I like this one. Now I want to go to this island!

Entertainment: Books (you knew that, right?)

Food: Pasta!

Celebrity Dinner Companion: Hmmmm...shallow or shallower? Robert Pattison (wincing)

Dessert: Chocolate brownies (duh!)

Board Game: Scrabble (although I actually suck at it)

Personal care item: Toothbrush and toothpaste (not an option to not have)

H.K. said...

This is a fun game! I would need a book, pasta, brownies, Anderson Cooper as a celebrity companion-he's cute and imagine the stories he would tell! And you can never tire of monopoly and I need to brush my teeth.

Debbie said...

Loving this!
1. Books
2. Pasta
3. Orlando Bloom (what? of course he's intellectually stimulating)
4. Ice cream
5. Scrabble
6. Toothbrush and toothpaste (gotta stay minty fresh for Orlando)

Lois Lane II said...

Books (because I could sing myself)
Pasta (because I could catch fish)
John Locke (because he'd protect me)
Brownies (because they're good hot or cold)
Scrabble (forever a winner)
Toothbrush/paste (I can't live without it)

Dani said...

Great idea!
1- Books (the sound of the waves and whatnot would be music enough for me and an escape from the rechid tv would be wonderful!)
2- A bit hard, but PANCAKES as long as there's great toppings for them!
3- Johnny Depp of course! I think, (although I might not pay attention to a word he says, I'd be so into his mouth moving) he'd a great conversationalist!
4- Ice cream! The brownies are very tempting but I think with the heat the ice cream would be great- and it would serve as a topping for the pancakes too!
5- This is a toughy because I'd rather cards. But monopoly is the best of these, I guess.
6- I'll go with deodorant because I hate going to the beach without deodorant! Yuck - can't stand the sweat and the whiffs of my own body odor! But my second choice is the toothpaste/brush because that's gross too - but I guess I could always use salt water as mouthwash or something. Ha!

This was a blast! Thanks Kelly!

Dani said...

Lois! John Locke! I didn't think of that! Yeah, he would be a great choice too! Definitely! :)

sol said...

ugh, that's so not making me choose between books and music! can't choose, it's just too hard....
Jon Stewart
anything chocolate works for me

Dan Felstead said...

Ok here we go....
Bob Dylan (I know that is idol)
Apple Pie
Toothbrush and paste


Gerri said...

I would need:

1. Music
2. Pasta
3. James Lipton from Inside the Actors' Studio who interviews all of the celebrities. He would be awesome.
4. I don't like any of these dessert choices but if I had to choose, it would be the brownies.
5. Monopoly
6. Toothbrush and toothpaste-if push came to shove, I would put a little toothpaste under my arms, lol

Becca said...

How fun!

My list would go something like:
1. Books
2. Chicken (especially boneless chicken wings HA)
3. Channing Tatum (WHEW!!!)
5. Monopoly
6. Definitely toothbrush and toothpaste

christy rose said...

I would say, music, chicken, dennis quaid, brownies, scrabble, and definitely a toothbrush and toothpaste. That was fun!!
