Desert Island Dream....

ok, well, here you go

:: Ship sinking: washed ashore, 10 items ::


So I go to the captain..."Those waves look a bad, eh? I'm just sayin"


He says, "Don't worry. Go back downstairs and enjoy the party"
Sooo, I do.......




Things got a little out of hand!


All that I remember after that is that I woke up on Eng's couch!
Oh, wait... a different story...

I woke up here... on a deserted island


Apparently, there was a problem at coast guard station... and they have no idea where we sunk.
Details here (speakers on!): http://s91.photobucket.com/albums/k316/JohnSim_2006/?action=view¤t=germancoastguard.flv

LOL, "ehhh, what are you sinking about!"



After some time on the island, I start having REAL problems...



:: 2 watches ::

The first watch would definately be my 190. My wife purchased this for me on my 10yr wedding anniv.
Anyone that can put up with me for that long is SIMPLY AMAZING LOL


Last year at pday, on the boat heading to dinner!



The second would be my 201/A. The bridge between vintage Panerai and the modern day watch
company that we all have a common passion for. Without this period, none of us would have met each
other.
It's sooooo much more than just a watch.


:: 2 songs ::
This is impossible for me because I love music. I grew up in the 80s as a teenager, which means
that I listened to pretty much the 60s and 70s!!!! LOL

I also have a real bond to the bands that are tied to New York my home state.

So I'll pick a little from both...
1) One from over the pond --- Led Zeppelin -- Immigrant Song
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gwG8WXYAHR0
2) One local --- Beastie Boys -- Gratitude ....Brooklyn!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6UXqjYzrOI

:: 1 book ::
Again, tough one here, there are so many great ones.
I am a real fan of Samuel Beckett. I can relate to his dark humor!
If I have to pick one: "Mercier and Camier "
http://books.google.com/books?id=cyLjVXW-uh8C&dq=mercier+and+camier&pg=PP1&ots=TW9-XT59hN&sig=e6ab9YfiJJSKQsS-3A_KsiZB0cE&hl=en&prev=http://www.google.com/search%3Fhl%3Den%26q%3DMercier%2Band%2BCamier&sa=X&oi=print&ct=title&cad=one-book-with-thumbnail#PPP1,M1

:: 1 movie ::
This one is actually easy for me: The Big Lebowski
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Big_Lebowski
I can watch if over and over... The Dude Abides! LOL, I think.

:: 1 photograph ::
My Family... Having fun at the beach



:: 1 memory ::

Hmmmmmm my marriage... (I look little thinner in this photo, ehhh???)


The birth of my Daughter



I can't single one out...
They grow up soooo fast!



Has to be my first born... The anticipation, fear and joy...
He was born with a full head of hair and a cowlick just like me perfection!




1 meal
A simple bolognese sauce on pasta with a nice bottle of wine will do me right every time!



1 person
Well, I should say my wife, but if I actually want to get off the island.
I have to steal my boy's dlee888's idea!

Sorry Dear! I'll see you when I get back!
