Who would you want to meet?

inspired by Irishlove who from history would you like to meet? Personally, I’d like to meet Geoffery Chaucer, he seems to be quite the interesting fellow.

If I had a time machine, I’d hang out at Slaughter’s Coffee House in 18th century London and attempt to strike up a friendship with Thomas Chippendale.
Personally, this would be most interesting to me if it was during the period when he was composing the first edition of his book, “The Gentleman and Cabinetmaker’s Director”.
I’ve read a bit about him, but what struck me most was how similar his cabinetshop was to most shops today. The slings and arrows, the dream customers, defeats, victories and so forth.
Plus ce change, plus c’est la meme chose.


People I would love to meet:

Elizabeth I
Jane Grey
Mary Todd Lincoln
MLK, Jr.
The Emporer of San Francisco
Anne Boleyn
Da Vinci
Lucrezia Borgia
Catherine D’Medici
Catherine the Great
Cleopatra VII
Eleanor Roosevelt
Queen Victoria

(I could go on all night.)

John Candy - I think he’d be a blast to hang out with.

Sure there are hundreds upon hundreds of historical figures it’d be interesting to meet, but he’s the one I’d pick.
