The Desert Island game

Okay, I'm in final prep for a busy weekend full of birthday parties and weddings, so I'm keeping this one light tonight.

I love the Office and in season two's episode, "The Fire," Jim and everyone play a game called, "Desert Island," where they list the top five movies, books, television shows they would bring with them to a desert island. Oh and I have a little version of the other game they played "who would you do?" too at the end ;)

So to kick off the weekend, I thought I would play this game with all of you!

Here are my answers:

Movies:
  • Tommy Boy
  • Casino
  • Enchanted
  • Bridget Jones' Diary
  • Love Actually
Books/Magazines:
  • Anything by Jennifer Weiner or Emily Giffin
  • Vanity Fair (makes me feel smart)
  • People
  • Us Weekly (I need my gossip)
  • Twilight series
Television shows:
  • Office (yeah, that's not a surprise)
  • Arrested Development
  • 90210 (original version)
  • O.C.
  • Colbert Report
Now the question is: Who would you rather do? (aka "hook up" with)

1. John Krasinski - Robert Pattinson

2. George Clooney - Brad Pitt


3. Jon Hamm - Joe Jonas

4. Larry the Cable Guy - Stewie
My answers: 1 - John Krasinski, 2 - George Clooney, 3- Jon Hamm, 4 - Um, do I have to pick?

I'm curious to read everyone's answers! 

This weekend is the wedding I mentioned yesterday and Miss Jamie's birthday. I'll have pictures and stories to share!

What is everyone else up to this weekend?

Lacey Bean said...

DEFINITELY John Krasinski over Rob Pattinson. Clooney over Pitt, Hamm over the Jonas (I don't even know who he is haha) and if I have to pick, Larry the Cable Guy over Stewie, cause well, Stewie is a baby and that's kind of illegal. :)

Princess Pointful said...

I am so so bad at these top 5 lists. It always feels like such an overly important decision to me.

And I think we have the same taste in men, though I'm going to have to think about the Clooney-Pitt one a little more.

Now, what would I bring with me?

Books: Harry Potter series, InStyle magazine, Emily of New Moon trilogy, His Dark Materials trilogy, Pride and Prejudice (is it bad that most of my choices are series?)
