4) socks to go with boots above
5) a deck of cards
6) The Complete Works Of William Shakespeare
7) a thick notebook
8) that miracle pen everyone keeps refrencing

|Emily (St. Paul, Minnesota US) ||Age: 15 - Email |
1.notebook to write in
3.box of crayons to draw in notebook
4."Dandelion Wine" by Ray Bradbury
5."The Stand" by Stephen King(that'll keep me occupied for awhile)
6.star chart, so I could learn some constallations
8.batteries for the flashlight
9.my nice soft polar fleece blanket
10.my walking stick, i wouldn't want to have to find and make another one(although that might be a good activity)
I was thinking about a cd player, but it would be nice to have some peace, plus a cd player just doesn't fit with the deserted island image. Also, I wanted to include one of my friends, but I didn't want to characterize her as an "item".

Five of those items would have to be books. I refuse to live my life without books. The sixth would be a large notebook. The seventh a pen. I'd go nuts without being able to write down things. I hate it when I hvae this great poem pop up and then no where to write it down. The eight would be my penticle necklace. I tend to feel very insecure with out. And the tenth would be the blanket my grandmother made for me for Yule one year.

A good knife--you never know when it will come in handy, plus wood carving is a good way to pass the time.
"A Winter's Tale" by Mark Helprin--have to have a good book.
The tenth Wheel of Time book by Robert Jordan (I'll pretend it's been published already)--have to have a second book for when I finish the first.
A big notebook--we all need that, right?
And a pen.
A taiko drum
A bottle of very good tequila
A deck of cards
A good book of crossword puzzles and other word games
A picture of my family
I agree with most peopel. Sounds like a nice vacation to me.

|Clove (Salt Lake City, Utah US) ||Age: 22 - Email |
1. "Foucault's Pendulum" by Umberto Eco
2. Sunscreen (I just shaved off 36" of hair and my poor bald head is tender)
3. The hammock my brother brought me from Brazil
4. My woobie (the baby blanket my mom made while I was in utero)
5. The stray kitten my landlord won't let me keep.
6. A percolator (sp?) for my coffee
7. #6 necessitates that I bring plenty of coffee, in case it's not native to the island.
8. My journal
9. My calligraphy set
10. My work cell phone, Lucy. (A shortened version of Lucifer, as she was aptly named by my nearest & dearest.) No, I'm not neurotic. I want to sacrifice Lucy to Pele. Okay, maybe that makes me a litle neurotic - but in a fun way.

Well, being on a deserted island would be a bit lonely, so the first thing I would bring with me would be my beloved, my other half, as I could not live without him! The other nine things I would bring are: my wand, my diary (which doubles as my magickal BOS) and a pen, my essential oils, my book collection, my necklace that my beloved gave me, cds and a cd player, my teddy (another item from the beloved's gift list), a sharp knife cause you never know when they would come in handy!! Okay okay so it isn't very imaginative, but hey, its the truth darling!
