…my dream dinner guests list… prob’ly change again by next week!…

…I’ve had a lot of fun with this over the years — invite your friends to select a list of eleven people, fact or fiction, dead or alive, all to be available at the same time to join you to dinner…  who would be on your list?… every time I do it, the content changes, although a few are ‘ever-presents’... here’s this week’s list:

  1. (now, Sir) Billy Connolly
  2. Sir Winston Churchill
  3. Mother Theresa
  4. Peter Ustinov
  5. Madonna
  6. Joseph (father of Jesus)
  7. Oscar Wilde
  8. Robin Williams
  9. Dame Judi Dench
  10. Leonardo Da Vinci
  11. Sir Alex Ferguson                                                                                                                                                                                                           …the social and literary concoction, together with the humour, insights, sporting knowledge and personal anecdotes would be spellbinding… in an age where laughter is too often derived from pratfalls and cutting other people down, how refreshing would be the overwhelming wit at a table surrounded by this party… none of these people are ‘shrinking violets’...

I’ve included Churchill, not for his politics, but for his repartee, lifelong maverick attitude and behaviour, and not forgetting he won the Nobel Prize for Literature for his amazing 4-volume compendium, ‘A History of the English Speaking Peoples’ I guess the dinner would extend for more than a week, and with a guest list of this calibre, that would be well worth it… however, as I acknowledged above, every time I draw up this list, I have a roster of dozens, if not, hundreds more names I could add without diminishing the superb quality of conversation and experience… as for the ‘ever-presents’, they would be the trio of Connolly, Ustinov and Churchill… how would your guest list stack up?… see yeez later… LUV YEEZ!

  3. What a wonderful dinner party. Peter Ustinov would be a fabulous raconteur – I still think he was the best Hercule Poirot.

  4. Splendid, Seumas. A great guest list with only myself missing. But as a fellow Churchill fan, I note an error (deliberate surely) Churchill’s history was: ‘A History of the English Speaking Peoples.’ Cheers.

  6. That is one mighty list, with so much wit, wisdom and humour I do agree. You need a week before you tap into just some of what they have to say.
    Enjoy your dinner

  8. It seems like a winning list, Seumas. Ustinov’s humor could make me laugh out loud. 😀 — Suzanne
