Okay, Scandy, I accept your challenge!

Scandy of the fabulous blog Scandalous Housewife ( has presented me with a challenge and I am up for it. It is much more difficult than it looks on the surface. Here goes:

"Your ship has sunk. You have, of course, been stranded on a deserted island. You have salvaged a copy of the King James Version of the Bible and a copy of the complete works of Shakespeare. Nothing else. “The very next day you find one of those Arabian Lamps in the sand. Of course, you rub it and, of course, a rather grumpy Genie appears. “‘Let’s get this straight - there is a recession going on. There are restrictions on the three wishes now. I don’t do water or air transport now so no boats, planes or magic carpets. As for electronics, forget it. There isn’t the infrastructure on this island. “‘I can let you have one book and I mean one VOLUME, one essential item and one luxury item. Now hurry up and make your choices, I have to get to those five other islands you are going nominate. "

Book:The Complete Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook
Essential item: A pharmacy? Oh pooh! No infrastructure on the island. Well, how about a never ending supply of fine wine?

Luxury item: An unlimited supply of La Mer products to keep my youthful glow together with a hot blooded tall, dark and handsome Argentine man to apply the products and pour the wine. If that counts as two items, give me La Mer!
Okay, so what would your items be?
My challenge goes out to the following fabulous bloggers:
1. A Dating Diary- I know you have a new job but please share!
2. The Kitchen-Okay Momma! I know you have a real sense for fantasy.
3. A Blondie Moment- I know you have a great imagination.
4. Pretty on the Outside-Please illustrate your answers.
5. Real Housewife of Maryland-J, looking forward to hearing what you have to say!

Wow, you may have asked the wrong person...being around me or anyone in my family when electronics are not available isn't pretty. When the power goes down, you have never seen a crabbier bunch of people!
So, I guess I'll just ask for a noose!
PS. Thanks for the suggestion to add Kim Zolciak as a Facebook friend. I think she has been too busy working on her CD to accept my invitation though.....
PSS. Since you are a cougar, perhaps your essential item should be Robert Buckley or Emile Hirsch.
