“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."
Oh no. I'm stuck on a deserted island with no Sawyer and no Kiefer. Maybe I should be glad it's not the island from Lost with a life of its own and a creepy ability to move from place to place hindering any rescue attempts. Also, its inhabitants can't ever leave because they are in some sort of twisted, unnatural relationship with this possessed island.
In a sweet, soothing, mellifluous voice, ReformingGeek starts to sing "Welcome to the Hotel California..."
“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 three
Anyhowser, back to the 3 wishes. I guess beggars can't be choosers:
A book? ONE book?
Hum......lucky me. I think I'm going to have to go with the Book of Charms. Duh. Then I can whisk away any demons and other such evil spirits that try to take over me or my island. Hubby said it might help if I'm a witch. Does it count that I've been called one?
Or was that the other "itch" word?
An essential item?
Another genie, of course. There had better be a genie in this here lamp or else the blue guy gets it!
A Luxury item.
Ahhhhhh. A massage.
I thought about asking for an eyelash curler but with the humidity, the taming of the wild eyelashes would only last a few seconds, so forget it.
In other news, that sweet cutie-pie Diet-Dr-Pepper-addict Quirky dropped me this "Friends" award that is making me think of cardio exercise and leftover Valentine's Day candy. I'm not sure why. Here is what I was supposed to do with it:
Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who can choose eight more and include this text into the body of their award.It's time to spread the love, folks. I picked a few of you

Marvel at The Daily Egg
Bee at Bee's Musings
ReformingGeek thanks Disney for not taking legal action against me for using the photo of the blue guy. I'd also like to thank Amazon.com for kindly allowing me to show a photo of one of its book offerings. Brain fog prevents me from remembering where the heck the lamp photo came from. Finally, I actually have the right to use the massage photo!
