Lunchtime Poll

LTP: 6/6

Happy Monday, Persephone readers! We’re here to keep you fully stocked with things to read between tasks and crises all week long.  If you haven’t read it yet, check out Luci’s liveblog of the NARAL Power of Choice event she attended in VA on Saturday; she did a great job covering it for all of us who couldn’t be there.

For today’s LTP I’m feeling diabolical.

Imagine, if you will, that the zombie apocalypse has begun. You’re chosen to live in a protected underground bunker for one year, while the shambling hordes are dealt with above. You’re allowed to take one book, one album and one movie with you to the bunker, and there’s a catch.  You’ll be bunking with two other people (for the purposes of this exercise, they are well-known people), one of whom you like and one of whom you despise. Both of them also have one book, one album and one movie.

What items and which people would you choose to be stuck with for one year?

So, no kidding, I’ve been thinking about this since Monday. I’m thinking, The Princess Bride, Lenny Kravitz’ Let Love Rule and Douglas Adams’ Hitchhiker’s Guide Omnibus, because it’s funny and it has five books in one.

I would like to have Steve Martin in there with me, and he can bring whatever he wants. His taste is impeccable. If Steve Martin is otherwise engaged during the zombie plague, I would also be happy with Alan Tudyk. He would bring an awesome selection of media and some action figures to play with when we got bored.

As for someone I hate, I’m thinking Joe from Blue’s Clues. He would bring a Mariah Carey cd, The Secret and the movie Kangaroo Jack. I don’t actually hate Kangaroo Jack, and I feel kind of bad about hating Joe, but I never got over Steve going away.

Lady Gaga’s Fame Monster
Sin City
(all of these I have read, listened to, watched over and over again – I KNOW I won’t get sick of them) :)

Martha Stewart – because when there is no one left but those in the bunker, you want a good gardener/do-everything-er:
Blank Journal and lots of pens (she seems more like a writer than a reader)
Elton John’s Greatest Hits
Guns, Germs and Steel

Nathan Stark (thanks to Baseballchica03 for reminding me) – the character from Eureka. He’s smart enough to help everyone survive the aftermath, he’s egotistical enough to be a serious leader and he’s not so horrible that I would refuse to have kids with him thereby continuing the human race.
Metaphysics (what?! I don’t know)
The Who
The Hangover (oh, you know it’s his guilty pleasure)

So, there’s my team. I’m like Xander (except well, he actually liked/loved all the people in his camp), I hang out with the kids that know. :)
