What 3 things would you take to a desert island and why?
I was recently asked this question and without too much thought i came up with my perfect answer;
1. Mr. Spittoon – the boyfriend (he is much more entertaining than a TV or iPod could ever be!!)
2. A case of Champagne (a drink which can make even a dire situation seem almost dream-like)
3. A chilly bin full of ice (can’t have warm Champagne can we)
With these 3 things, i think i would be fully satisfied,well for a while at least! Champagne above all has to be my choice of drink, nothing bets it, its like a boost of happy endorphins in a glass.
So on this thought i figured i might share some of my favourite Champagne quotes with you all;
Lily Bollinger was asked “When do you drink champagne?”, and she replied: “I only drink champagne when I’m happy, and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company, I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I am not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise I never touch it – unless I’m thirsty”.
Three be the things I shall never attain: Envy, content, and sufficient champagne. – Dorothy Parker
I am drinking the stars! – Dom Perignon, on his first sip of bubbly Champagne
In victory, you deserve Champagne, in defeat, you need it. – Napoleon
There comes a time in every woman’s life when the only thing that helps is a glass of champagne. – Bette Davis (from the movie Old Acquaintance)
Champagne is the only wine that leaves a woman beautiful after drinking it. – Madame De Pompadour
Champagne’s funny stuff. I’m used to whiskey. Whiskey is a slap on the back, and champagne’s a heavy mist before my eyes. – Jimmy Stewart (from the movie The Philadelphia Story)
I drink champagne when I win, to celebrate . . . and I drink champagne when I lose, to console myself. – Napoleon Bonaparte
The feeling of friendship is like that of being comfortably filled with roast beef; love is like being enlivened with Champagne. – Samuel Johnson
So if you could take only 3 things to a desert island, what would they be, and why?
