DH & I talk about this at times. On our list are Michael Palin and the Dalai Lama. I'd add David Tennant (in his Doctor character), but I'm not sure he'd make DH's list  tongue.gif

#4 Lucrezia Borgia

Seriously, only three??!

Ok

Jesus Christ
Judas iscariot
Martin Luther


....I reckon Jesus would be interesting and quite possibly a dark horse......(tis the season and all) ....Martin Luther would be a tad intense and would possibly be a non drinker...but still, judas, well, I like a bit of discomfort  at my dinner parties...!

Can't we do a party of 8??

Another vote for Stephen Fry, and I'd make him do a personal reading of Harry Potter for me.

i'm going to take the non famous route Tounge1.gif

I would have the 4 (yes i'm being greedy) midwives who were involved in the pregnancy and birthing of our 3 kids.

they inspire me more than any other people/persons i've ever encountered.
they have the most beautiful/kind/compassionate spirit.

I want them to know how truly special they are to our family, but I really am no good with words!

At the moment? Fannie Flagg (writer of Fried Green Tomatoes, among other books) because she's just pure awesomeness, Javier Bardem, just so he'll speak to me. And Barack Obama. I'd like to figure out if he really is as nice and genuine as he seems. Oh and you can't invite the Pres without the 1st Lady so Michele can come share her awesomeness, too!

Barrack Obama
Sean Connery
Mother Teresa

#19 Ice Queen

Posted 07 December 2012 - 08:06 AM

Tough one.

Probably Louis Thereoux and Micheal Palin.
Matt Damon for eye candy.  No idea if anything intelligent would come out of his mouth though.

But that leaves me with no females.  Hmmmm need a rethink.

Robin Williams
Jackie Chan
Michael Jordan

Non famous (people I want to grow old like)

I've seen Matt Damon in interviews. He's pretty switched on. Two for one he's eye candy AND engaging!

I know who I would never invite - Dann Brown. I'd be too scared he'd use me for an experiment.

I'd like an invite to this dinner but I'd find Stephen Fry a little intimidating.

I'm listening to the philosopher's stone atm, he does an amazing job reading it


My 3:

Alanis Morissette (although i would officially be speechless for the entire dinner)
Douglas Adams

third would be a toss up between Alan Rickman (just to listen to that voice) and Anne McCaffrey (who from all accounts i've heard about was an absolutely lovely person)
