Desert Island Essentials #15

Imagine you are stranded on a desert island in the middle of the ocean without a person in sight, however not to worry, as this island is pretty luxurious compared to some others! I’m asking a different blogger every week what their desert island essentials are, and this week it’s Becky from Becky Bedbug.

On your lovely little desert island you find an iPod, however it can only hold 5 songs – which five songs would you choose?

Lots of mid-00s emo! 
Brand New- Me vs Maradona vs Elvis
AFI- This Time Imperfect
My Chemical Romance- Demolition Lovers
Taking Back Sunday- The Ballad of Sal Villanueva
Funeral for a Friend- Juneau
I’m going to be pretty miserable on this island, judging by the music! Mind you, the battery probably won’t last that long…

Surprisingly, there is also a TV on the island! But, you can only pick one movie or TV show to watch for your time here, what would you choose?

There’s an electricity supply! I’m starting to like this island. Means I can charge the iPod too! 
Oliver! I could never get bored of that film. It makes me so happy, so I guess that will counteract the depressing emo music.

Before you were stranded you were carrying a book, what one book would you want to have on the island with you?

Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck. Oh no, now I’m going to get depressed again. One of the central themes is loneliness, so I’ll be able to relate to it (assuming I’m on this island alone… How did I even get here?) 

Obviously, you’re not going to be left to starve. If you could only have 1 meal and 1 drink a day what would it be?

I could eat chicken every day so I’d definitely have some sort of chicken-based dish. Maybe a roast dinner. Om nom nom! I’d wash it down with Diet Pepsi. What else?

When stranded on your island what would your must have beauty essential be?

I’m on this island alone, so I’m not trying to impress anyone. Unless, you know, Alan Rickman drops by. I don’t want to get burned though, so I’ll have to go for factor one billion SPF. Or at least the closest I can find.

Everywhere has WiFi these days, right? Well your island does! However you are limited to one blog and one YouTube channel – who would you choose?

Ok, my one blog would be Oh! Leona ( because I could tell her I’m stranded on the island and she could rescue me. Also because she’s hilarious and my blog BFF. 
My Youtube channel would be Hello Ella because I love her Welsh twang, she makes me laugh constantly and she loves cake. What more could I want?
This was fun! Can I get off this island now, though? I need my bed!
