|Artemis Moonshadow (Kfar Saba, Israel) ||Age: 16 - Email |
Here we go:
1)Sun-screening lotion (I have very pale skin)
2)A solar operated radio/cd player (music is my sanity)
3)My CD collection (see above)
4)A bag of books I've read and haven't read but meant to (knda obvious why you must have books on a dessert island)
5)Notebooks and pens (for my poetry and writing)
7)A phone with a solar operated batery (I have to let my mother know I'm not dead while I'm on the island)
8)My cat (he's the guardian of my domain)
9)Deantal floss/mint chewinggum
10)Bug reppelent (I attract all sots of nasty things who "vant to such my bloood"
That's my list practical, on the island I'd probably meditate on the beach to the sunset, blissfuly skyclad and just relax, listening to music reading a good book and telling my friends on the otherside of the world that they should find their own island. The stars as my companions and my cat as my away from home family, I think I'd do quite well.

Wow, this is difficult! Thankfully it's only hypothetical.
Well here it goes:
1. Bug repellant! (who knows what kind of creepy critters may find me appetizing)
3. A collection of pagan chants
4. A knife to cut local herbs! Preferably my consecrated bolline, but any would do.
5. First Aid Kit (for those nasty possible snakebites and cuts, etc.)
6. The Illyad and the Odessey to pass the time and entertain myself.
7. A drum! (maybe I'd finally have the time and focus to get better)
8. A battery powered massager (no explaination needed there!)
9. A camera to photograph my, hopefully, beautiful and untouched surroundings
10.A picture of my live-in boyfriend to attach to the wall of my makeshift hut!

I would take sunscreen (I am one pale witch), a pillow, my pentacle, thats three... soap and a hair brush... thats 5
A really good fat book, and a journal. And a pencil, a good graphite one like you use for art, that way it will last, and I can draw to keep myself busy. 8
A good soft blanket. A case of diet coke. Oh and my runes... thats 11... I don't know... its a toss up between my runes, and the diet coke....
