    So you're on a desert island....

    ....there's only one other person with you and you only have 3 items.

    Who would you want that person to be?
    What 3 things would you want to have?

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Hmmmmm...

    No clue about the person, I'm sure I couldn't stand anyone for too long

    The Items would be a guitar, a magical fridge that keeps filling it's self with beer and cheese, and a toilet. He who thinks Australian...:saint:
