Thursday 13: Deserted Island

13 things I would want on a deserted island are...

And— yes... some of these may be frivolous.
AND— NO this is not EVERYTHING I would need.

1. Daniel. Certainly, he would be the #1 key thing I would need on a deserted island. Daniel can cook, build, hunt... all of the above and much more. Daniel would be my golden ticket to survival. OH— and I guess he is sort of fun to hang out with, too. Kind of. Maybe. A. Little.

2. Sunscreen! If I'm on a deserted island, it's probably going to be somewhere hot. I would need need need to protect myself from the sun!

3. Either Aloe Vera or an abundance of aloe plants on the island.

4. My Macbook. Um, how could I blog if I didn't have my computer? Don't think about the logistics... just know that I would need my Mac. And wireless. And a neverending battery supply... yeah...

5. A boombox! HOW MUCH FUN would it be to JAM OUT all by your lonesome on a deserted island? SO FUN. Think about it.

6. A gigantic box of matches. Maybe a never-ending supply box of matches. You just never know...

7. Cooking utensils, such as pots/pans, silverware... you name it. Shoot, maybe even a blender would be beneficial.

8. Rope! Lots and lots of rope. It could be used for constructing a shelter, broken down for fishing line... the possibilities are endless.

9. Fresh water. In fact, if a Culligan Man were to service me every other week, that would be ideal.

10. A gymnastic-standard, super-bouncy huge trampoline. I've always wanted one, and whether I was on a deserted island or not, I would want one.

11. A sleeping bag. I would not want to sleep on reeds, bamboo or hay. A sleeping bag is where it's at. In fact, just go ahead and make it a king-sized pillow-top Tempurpedic mattress mmmkay?

12. A very, very sharp knife. I'm no expert flint knapper, therefore I would need a knife (as well as Daniel to use the knife).

13. Rum! I'm actually not 100% sure if I would want rum... but Jack Sparrow always had it when he was stranded and it seemed to do him well... so, sure... rum it is.

Next Week's Topic? 13 Current Wishes. Join the Party!

I was speaking with another blogger just the other day how if we were stuck on a deserted island that we would not want to be without a toothbrush - so this post is perfectly timed. Sounds like your island would be quite comfortable. Also if you chose to not drink the rum - it could help ignite your awesome beach fires.

I love your choice of trampoline. Imagine how fun it would be if you put it in the water or on a small cliff or something and then jumped off it into the ocean by doing all sorts of crazy stunts! Super fun!
Your other choices are good too, but a trampoline would truly rock : ]
