desert islands -or is it dessert islands?

it seems to me that when people ask you questions about what you would bring with you to a desert island, you should respond with things like 'oh, a satellite phone'. or 'a pilot and a seaplane with navigation systems on board and plenty of fuel'. i'm probably most likely to answer something like 'a fully stocked holiday resort, including pool and hot showers and masseuses, and all the cold drinks i could possibly consume'. or perhaps 'the San Crispino Geletaria in Rome'. instead people answer things like 'knives' or 'bottled water' or 'the complete works of william shakespeare'. hmm. so tell me, peeps: if you were stranded on a desert island, what would you bring with you? one item, but i'll allow as many subclauses as you can fit in before a full stop. -grin-

in another, quite related question (cribbing, by the way, from The Amateur Gourmet quite shamelessly): if you were stuck on a desert island, what dessert would you bring?

my answer: San Crispino gelato in every conceivable flavour, but particularly limone and that beautiful hazelnut wonder that tastes like a cross between Nutella and Chocolate, lightened with fresh milk.

SM -foody enough for you? -grin- hope things are going well -don't stress out!

My own private yacht, complete with facilities including one of those funky freezers stocked full with meat, a satelite dish for satelite TV (along with obligatory 60' LCD TV) and of course, Shereen.

=p Thanks.

I would bring something that would get me off the deserted island as fast as possible, cos I don't like such places.
