I ask myself, and you: what would you need on a desert island? Let's imagine the island is very self-sufficent: about a hundred acres with a nice high hilltop with a clean and dry cave, a nice little beach and cove, plenty to eat and no mosquitos. Heaven, in fact.
SO: who do you want to join you, 5 people, what do you want to do to occupy yourself (sorry, anything but TV or computers, mostly), and you are allowed a fridge full of your favorite beverages which would be______
---5 people: 1) my wife! 2) Penny the beagle! (sorry my other pets, but your aunt Emily will move in with you and spoil you back in New York) 3) Paul Newman, I bet he'd be fun to talk to everyday--I'd say George Carlin too, but I bet he would get irritating 4) George Clooney--they say he is a fantastic host, really easy to get along with 5) Lynda from art on a limb, cause she is smart and hers is the last blog I looked at before writing this and I bet she would be extremely good company for all of us
---what do you want to do to occupy yourself: man, I want a load of clay and complete pottery studio, drawing paper, writing paper, and a weekly subscription to the New Yorker magazine, dropped by parachute---if I can't have that, maybe stone carving tools to try out the whole Easter Island tiki thing
---a fridge full of your favorite beverages which would be: OH JOY!!!! BEERS!!! RED WINE!!!! LEMONADE!!!!!!!!!!!! if I have to limit myself? those pub draught cans of Guinness would work perfectly...
OK, hey, it's your chance, weigh in here or at your blog! Everybody's tired and bored and workin' for the weekend, so think about this!
(25 out there this morning, a good chance to try the new black parka.....)
