Stuck on an Island

I find the title of this post half amusing and half depressing, because right now it’s true. I’m stuck on an island. I know Tasmania seems to be gaining a bit of a reputation as a great place to visit, and it definitely is, but living here in winter…ugh it’s driving me a bit crazy. I need to break out.

Fiona posted the other day about how she had been thinking about her deserted island must haves and put it out there for us to join in, so I am, please play along to!

starter: green olives, soft cheese and some nice crackers
drink: mojito (made with vodka not rum)
main: a tomato based pasta of some kind either amatriciana, puttanesca or this pasta peperonata is really good too
desert: a cupcake from Primrose Bakery

Only one artist is supremely difficult to choose but then I know it would sigur rós (oh and perhaps cheekily Jonsi’s solo work too). Their music is beautiful and so varied, it can be up and down, heavy or calming, it covers all the bases. I don’t think I would ever get sick of them.

I think it would have to be a camera, I say a camera because preferably it would be a Cannon 5D, which I really really want but currently don't use. I figure for my deserted island i can have what I want : )

I could say cooking, because frequently I choose to make things at odd times and find it quite peaceful and relaxing, but then sometimes I really don’t feel like it at all, so I don’t think that would be my deserted island hobby. Perhaps it would be reading both magazines and books like The Flavour Thesaurus, Anthology magazine or the The Hound of the Baskervilles (never read a Sherlock Holmes story yet but I think I would like them!).

I think I'd like to pop by your deserted island for an afternoon tipple. Sounds like a very yum place to be.
