Jack Black. I think he'd be fascinating to talk to.

The one-eyed pirate.

Oooh, first comments.....

"aaaaaaarrrrrrggggggggglllllllle"

Trapped in an elevator with Shakira. Not only is she easy on the eyes, but when she first hit the music scene, I read a little background on her - really an interesting life so far. Would be neat to talk to.

Desert Island - assuming it is tropical, has food, water and a volleyball named Wilson - I'd grab the case of tequila. While the CD could be used as a signalling mirror, the rope used to make a raft, the sweater (or the one-eyed pirate (or hell, if you're kinky, the monkey!)) used to keep you warm - I'd rather whoop it up while waiting for the rescue ship.

That plus the fact that I'm sure I'm not alone on the island - so possessing some fire water will be good to impress the natives!

1) shakira or cyndi lauper. if its a long time, i would prefer it would be with someone not annoying. jack black and weird al might get....weird. who the hell is tony robbins, and i loathe queen latifa.

2) the monkey. it can be fun, its company, it wont go 'arrgghh' all the time, and you can eat it if need be and be a cannibal.

First thought: Cyndi Lauper and rope.
Now I'm having trouble coming up with a second thought...

<6 hours then weird al. my niece and nephew would love to hear the stories. and think about the hours of laughter he could provide before i got tired of hearing him make bad songs worth hearing.

if the elevator excursion is for more than 6 hours then i'd have to say Cyndi Lauper. she is fascinating.

desert island means i've left the freakishly cold north east and don't need the wool sweater anymore.

i'd say the pirate. i'd train him to drop the pirate lingo. we live on an island now and people don't talk like that hear. speak the native tongue for pete's sake!

we could have a love child and get him to climb the trees for all the coconuts we want. and that's all we'd need according to the movie Castaway, for at least a few years.

i'd have to take the rope, too, just in case it doesn't work out with me and the pirate. i have fast hands, getting two things in time would be a breeze!

I'm going with Cyndi Lauper, because I think I could tolerate her better than the others.

It's gotta be the monkey, because hey, who doesn't like monkeys? Plus, maybe I could train him to get coconuts out of trees.

dan: Tony Robbins.

Consider yourself fortunate not to know him.

I'd go with Cyndi. She's much more interesting than you might think.

I guess I'd have the most use for the rope.

HaHA! I type like the wind, the wind, I tell you, and it's finally come in useful.

Hmm, it would be a toss up between Cyndi Lauper and Queen Latifa. Cyndi is interesting, I like her music, and she can sing all her songs at least two different ways. I like me some Queen Latifa too. If the elevator was stuck in the artic, she'd be the one to cuddle with for body heat. So, final answer is Cyndi in an elevator and Queen Latifa in a walk in meat locker or freezer.

What's a CD? All my music is digital, baby! My iPod is usually in one of my pockets. So, Higgy and I will be tossing back the tequila shots together. It's good for an antiseptic too. Also, I know how to make a very seaworthy craft from empty tequila bottles and wooden tequila crates.

i would say shakira - just would like to learn some more about her...

my first thought was a rope - i can use it to stay in shape, to pull coconuts out of a tree, to build a raft, to help hold up stuff for a tent, etc...so i'll go w/ my first thought - a rope

Queen Latifah is a hoot, but I'm gonna have to go with Jack Black. I think he'd be the most entertaining.

The pirate! He could sing to me, distill me some tequila, and maybe even knit me a wool sweater.

Nah, the rope is to weave a hammock...hmmm, Cyndi Lauper in a hammock...

Cyndi Lauper is my choice.

Since I will be marooned on a desert island, I will need liquids. Tequila it is.

Queen Latifah.. she seems the least annoying of all the options, and if I went for women ... well...... never mind. I don't.

My CD. Only I wasn't allowed to grab the CD player, so I've spent the last 6 months using it to play Frisbee with myself.
