My desert island companions

I figured that, in all fairness, I ought to answer the question I’m asking the rest of you to answer.

I’ve given this a lot of thought. I’ve opted not to bring any family members (human or feline) with me. They probably wouldn’t enjoy it there, and I figure someone needs to be coordinating rescue efforts to find me. (Here’s hoping it’s the humans and not the cats who are in charge of this…)

So here’s my list:

  1. A solar-powered computer (maybe something like this) connected to the Internet via satellite broadband. This will provide a ton of information, music, video, and communication to keep my brain from turning to mush. Plus when I finally do get rescued, I’ll already be current on who’s president and what wars he or she has started in far-off oil-rich regions since taking office.
  2. As much yarn as possible. And maybe spinning equipment, so I can turn coconut fibers and stuff into more yarn when my original stash is exhausted. Assuming I can teach myself how to spin, of course.
  3. Chuck Norris. No, not for any prurient reason. The way I see it, anyone this tough should have no trouble figuring out how to survive on a desert island.

If you’d like to join in the fun, go here to read the details of this contest. Be sure to put your comments after that post (not this one) so I can find them. The winner will be chosen at the end of this month!

    Wow, I didn’t see that Chuck Norris thing coming at all. Computer and yarn. Yeah baby.

    I just wanted to let you know that I have not forgotten your contest. Everytime I start thinking of my 3, more and more questions come to mind about this so called deserted island.
    That’s always been one of my problems, I think way too much. Sounds like I can set some parameters. BTW – My husband gets told time and time again that he looks like Chuck Norris.
