I do feel a bit like I’m casting for something like Big Brother by writing this post!
A good while ago Catherine over at NotDressedAsLamb posted up her fantasy dinner party guests…
It’s been in my ‘posts to write’ for too long now, so here are my top fantasy dinner party guests. I can’t remember if there are any rules but for the purpose of my posts, there are none! Dead or alive, funny or serious, poet or singer, there’s no dress code… Off the top of my head, I would invite:
- Jane Austen – I’ve studied Austen, I love Pride and Prejudice. I wrote my dissertation on the adaptation of P&P for the BBC (the Andrew Davis version). She doesn’t even have to RSVP, I would just love her to be there! She may be quite funny after a few drinks…
- But not a funny as Alan Carr. I haven’t seen many of his stand-up acts but recently saw the Great Ormond Street Comedy Gala which he hosted. There are too many comedians to choose from and he sprang immediately to mind.
- Russell Brand – for a bit of controversy! He’d be good at filling the awkward gaps and he’d be good at creating them too! Probably in equal measure.
- Chris Evans – the broadcaster and radio 1 DJ. I listen to his radio show most days and I’d like to see what he was like without his team around to compliment him. (In the teamworking sense of the word.)
- Terry Wogan – He’s a legend. Everyone’s got to have a legend at their dinner party!
- Dalai Lama – for his words of wisdom and his calmness…
- and you, of course 😉
That seems like a nice little crowd…
What questions would you ask and to whom? I’d love to know! Please comment below or tweet me @AllSortsHere
