Stranded

Wildcard: This category can be absolutely anything. Absolutely. Anything.

You will be stranded on a desert island for one year and can pick three men (men, you can pick three women) to be stranded with you. Who would you pick and why?

Today's cue courtesy of el vigilante.

We Have A Winner!!! 04/15/10
Les Stroud of Survivorman, because he would totally get me though the year safely and build me an awesome shelter.

Taylor Lautner to look at and his martial arts skills might come in handy to fight off any native wild animals.

And my son, because I couldn't live without him or that long.
Winner: Melinda (@mstacer)
Reason: I was impressed at how practical most of the responses were so I went with Melinda for choosing a nice mix of useful, hot, and sweet.

Can I take Angelina Jolie three times?

I'm just saying... why waste?

Heather said...

Paul Farmer, to keep me healthy by staving off infectious diseases.

Les Stroud (aka Survivor Man), because, uhm...duh. I want to survive.

And Neil Gaiman, to tell me stories every night before bed time.

Bethany said...

Jamie Oliver, because he can cook for me and I love a British accent
Ty Pennington, because he can build one awesome shelter in under 7 days and it helps that he is cute
Dr. Oz, because he knows which herbs and flowers and tree bark have medicinal uses and he is intelligent so I could have a decent conversation with him

Ray Mears, because he's gorgeous and knows what he's doing. And he can build a raft.

Gordon Ramsey, (I would pick Jamie, but a) Bethany has dibs on him and b) he has another baby due soon, so, y'know...) But Gordon can cook and play footie and raise his own animals. And he can paddle a raft.

Ranulph Fiennes, who is the coolest man in existence, could chat with Ray about surviving things, and can also paddle a raft.

I'm not staying for a year. I have stuff to do.

I can't believe I am stranded on a desert island. I'm not sure what to hope for more. To be alone with a volleyball as my only social comfort or to see other survivors or habitants and be fearful of living Lost reruns. I have only seen a few clips from the show, but it seems to be a highly stressful experience.

I start to walk down the shore, looking through the few things that have washed up on shore. There is nothing useful. Then I see the silhouettes of three people huddled under a palm tree in the weak dusk light. Their movements are large and dramatic; their voices raised high in alarm. I approach cautiously, trying to understand the conversation. Finally, I am close enough to start making out features. I loose my breath.

Their clothing is tattered and faces are dirty, but I would recognize them anywhere. I am a mix of emotions: star struck and hopeful. We will be rescued soon. These men are far too important not to be searched for. I want to make my presence known and wish I had a mirror or at least a sexy little dress on. Instead, my appearance is as wrecked as theirs.

"Hello?" I call out in a questioning manner.

John Cusak looks at me. His dark hair is a mess making him that much more attractive. I can't help but offer a small smile as thoughts of him producing and starring in the book I plan to write about my experience. Johnny Depp looks up from his seated position. He's a beautiful man too. His exudes a calmness that makes me feel safe. He's an avid sailor so maybe he will have some ideas of how to get help. And then there is Craig Furgeson. He is smiling at what I assume is the absurdity of the situation. At least he will be able to keep us laughing at the situation.

Who needs food and shelter with such great company? I release my breath and take another step forward.

Rena said...

Tyler Florence-- everyone else has dibs on the hot British chefs, and I'm going to need food.

*long, decisive pause, as most of the people I'd want to be around are only useful when there are witty things to be said about the news, of which there is little on this island... or Steve Irwin, but he's dead.*

Bear Grylls-- he knows Ninjitsu, is British, and has been to Antarctica.

John Green-- for entertainment and discussion, and because Heather already took Neil Gaiman.
