So this is the tale of our castaways, they're here for a long, long time...


When I was younger, I watched a lot of Gilligan's Island. When I was older, I was enthralled with LOST. I can safely say that while I like watching it on the screen, I would absolutely never want to find myself in that predicament. I'm not a survivor in those terms - MFD is the survivor in our relationship.

Even so, I've spent a lot of minutes in this life idly thinking about things I'd have with me on a desert island. I've also thought a lot about that term - shouldn't it be deserted island? You'd think, but desert is just an archaic form of deserted that means the island is uninhabited, not dry like a desert. Whatever, I know. p.s. - the photo above is from 2010 and was taken on Disney's private island in the Bahamas, and this post itself has been in draft form since 2014. 

Food - steak

Snack - strawberries

Drink - iced coffee (there is free flowing non poisonous water on this island, damnit)

Clothes - maxi dress

Accessory - big ass scarf

Beauty product - Soap

Luxury item - sunglasses

Books - Honestly, I can't think of a more terrible category. I consume books quickly. I would like an endless library. That being said, I will go with Beach Music by Pat Conroy.

Music -  Born to Run by Bruce Springsteen

TV Series - Beverly Hills 90210

Movie - Dirty Dancing...did you expect something else? I can spend an eternity driving myself crazy dissecting this movie.

What are your picks? Or do you need the weekend to mull it over?

Have a good one!

  2. Loving the series you picked to watch - I think I would agree with you because it's long and the episodes were an hour not a half hour!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. This is very fun. Not in any particular order. Neutrogena spf 70 sunblock cream, jumbo lump crabmeat , Cadbury mini eggs, my phone with good service and everlasting battery, The Works of Florence Scovel Shinn, my quilt from Lori.
    A happy Friday and weekend to all.
    Love. Your. Momma.

  6. I would need more than a weekend to mull it over. What a list. Movie = Empire Records and Food = nachos, that much I'm sure of. And I am leaning towards iced coffee with you. The rest I don't even know if I could choose.

  7. Now I really need to be on a beach with that water, those are the best days. And yes to all the iced coffee and 90210 re-runs. Happy Friday <3

  10. Sunglasses - smart.
    I love you pick Beverly Hills 90210... were you a Dylan or Brandon kinda girl? :)

  11. I pretty much would have this same list, except rose for the drink and bob marley for the music. Oh 90210, great choice, I need to add that to my binge list! Have a great weekend!

  12. So fun - Glad this one made it from draft to reality! It is so impossible to choose just one book, although I lived in France for a year when the only English book I had was Anna Karenina and I read it six times - Whenever my brain was too tired of reading/speaking French! So I can vouch for that one being desert-island worthy. :-)

  13. FUN!! I've never heard of Beach Music but now I need to go check it out! I definitely need more than a weekend to mull over my responses - I am the world's most indecisive person. LOL.

  14. This is such a fun post, but also hard to choose as well! I'm with you on not knowing if I could choose one book to be on a deserted island with, but without a doubt I'd choose chips and salsa as my snack!

  15. Definitely steak for me too. I'd take MJ's "Thriller" album for my musical selection.
