If you could have dinner and a conversation with any four currently living people, who would they be?
Part of me wants to say Vladimir Putin, Dubya, Queen Elizabeth II and Emperor Akihito, just for the name-dropping rights. But in truth several of those named would kill my appetite. So instead, I chose:
Mine would be:
Theresa “Darklady” Reed
Jason Alexander (the actor, not Brittney’s ex)
Dopers (there are so many that to get them all in, I’d have to host several dinner parties, but for starters):
Mr Bus Guy
George Clooney (just for the eye candy)
Wait - do I have to pick up the check for this dinner??
Cowboy Bill Watts
Menu is steak & tater & beer. LOTS of beer.
Definately one of the members of Queen really doesn’t matter which one but if I had to pick between the three, I guess it would be Roger Taylor.
In fact, If I actually got to have dinner with four people IRL,I would probably pick all three members but in this thread I will just pick Roger.
Georgia Frontiere owner of the St.Louis Rams,I’d ask her for a job.
NFL cheerleader Shantel Mancito, I’d ask her for a job.
Cartoonist Bill Watterson
I think I shall have to have a second dinner with
Off the top of my head
I’d be laughing a lot, and something would probably explode over the course of dinner. What more could I ask for?
Neil Peart, Tony Millionaire, Steve Howe (the guitarist, not the spitter) and someone else not to be named at this time. (see recent posts)
Those first three better have something to discuss among themselves.
I just wanna be entertained…
On second thought, can I trade them all in for a date with Mariah Carey.
hrm… Benedicto XVI. Could make for some very interesting conversation, if the other two ladies didn’t kill me for bringing him
- Years ago, I went to a literary con in Barcelona. TP was the initial speaker. I wasn’t wearing my headphones, so I didn’t notice the problems with the sound system… when they were solved, he said he’d been wondering why only two people were laughing
We were talking on the way to lunch so I got seated beside him. He asked whether I’d read any of his books, I answered “no. Hey I’m a student, I’m poor! But based on that speech I figure I’ll give one a try.” Cool guy. The book I happened to pick is one of the best in the series: advanced enough to have gotten the kinks worked out and the jokes were still new (Guards, Guards). I am so hooked now.
Depends. Am I allowed to put cyanide in the amuse bouche?
