View Full Version : My Perfect Dinner Guests Would Be.....
If you could have anyone alive or dead at a dinner party who would you invite and why?
Sean Connery.... just so I could drool and listen to that voice!
Terry Pratchett....too many things from his books I would like to explore further.
Dr Magdi Yacoub.... this man is a genius! Pioneering heart surgeon.
Pat Phoenix...... I imagine her tales could be colourful.
Jamie Oliver.... he would be in the kitchen though.
Sir David Attenborough.... his travels would be worth listening to.
William Wallace..... his spirit and patriotism would be matched by Mr Connery.But my guests of honour would be.....
Nan....just for one last time
and my Daddy... just to be able to hear his voice just once
Winston Chruchill - a legend one of my all time heroes.
Yoda - for his wit and wisdom.
Jamie Oliver - to cook dinner and chat
Debbie Harry - childhood crush and bet she has stories to tell, and good to look at too.
David Tennant - Doctor Who enough said.
Helen Mirren - A legend and would grace to the table, if not the Queen.
David Niven - suave and good for after dinner speaches.
Joanna Lumley - Poise and grace, beauty to any dinner table.
Scooby Doo - for the leftovers.
Wallace and Grommit - cheese and biscuits would be a blast.
Laurel & Hardy........... The Best
Paul Merton...............The razor wit of the man
Elvis Presley...............For my wife
My bank manager........His meal would have arsenic in it !!:D
All the members of this site..Imagine the good time we would have with our memories. No arsenic in your meals though :)
And...my guest of honour...
My Son Martyn, who died 3 years ago age 18:cry:
If only all these were possible.
i will take my hat off to that if only we could bring back the ones we loved and lost , such as my mum who died suddenly three and a half years ago whilst on holiday with my dad .
my guest list would be
1 princess diana ... she was lovely
2 freddie mercury ...to sing in the background
3 gill grisolm from csi ... i love his dry sense of humour
4 jamie oliver ...too cook for us all
5 my mums departed cat wellington .. to lick the plates
6 sir frank wittle ..to discuss the jet engine invention
7 my nan
8 coleen nolan ...to erm give me dessert
Errrrrrrr Steve?...... why Shrek and the Donkey? and remind me not to accept dinner invitation if the cat cleans the plates!
well shrek and donkey make me laugh
and you save a fortune on washing up liquid he he
Hmm... perfect dinner guests... a tough one. My only special requirement would be that dinner would have to be served at breakfast time, because you'd need the rest of the day to allow everyone to relate the excellent after dinner stories!
David Niven - good call Oggy. Niven would be an excellent guest - polite, debonair and witty, with a treasure trove of stories both funny and thought provoking.
Joan Bakewell - also known as 'Thinking Man's Crumpet' (a tag she got in the early 70s I think). She is smart, articulate and very attractive.
Patrick Macnee - an old favourite of mine, the quintessential English gent. He would have to be in character as John Steed though.
Diana Rigg - well I couldn't have one without the other!! As Mrs. Peel, dressed in that catsuit...
Orson Welles - actor, director, bon viveur. Think of the many stories he would have at his disposal!! If he couldn't make it, I would accept Orson Cart, Kenny Everett's impersonation of Welles.
Duchess Of Kent - One of my favourite royals (it's a very short list), she is genuinely interested in other people irrespective of their social status, compassionate, warm, just a wonderful human being. A role model for other royals if ever there was one.
Cary Grant - smoother than silk, it would be a pleasure to see this man in action at a dinner table.
Catherine Deneuve - what a beautiful woman. Elegance, feminine grace and class.
Winston Churchill - another good call Oggy. With Churchill's vast knowledge of political events spanning the 20th century, once again he would serve as a veritable treasure trove of stories, though we would avoid discussing the Dardanelles at all costs.
Cate Blanchett - extremely talented actress and gorgeous to boot. Very down to earth too and happy to talk about anything.
Clive James - another perfect guest. Entertainingly witty, sharp as a pin, his insights and comments could spice up any conversation.
Dorothy Parker - now there was a lady who could spice up a conversation. Would have to keep the drinks trolley a moderate distance away from her side of the table.
There's more I could add, but these people would be a good starting point.
Wow Scouse that is some guest list there. You would probably need a whole weekend round the table to get to everyones stories! Leave a space at the table for me will you?
Yep good listing, and well thought out too, but Momma was telling me to have a dinner party, not a conference so had to curtail my own list. Well Dian Rigg, a dame and yummy, Cary Grant kool, and charm personified, beaten maybe only by David Niven, and Churchill a true legend, maybe Shakespeare should be on somebodies list, but me thinks that they may not be able to undestand what he was saying?
Another list for diner would be the ten incarnations of the Doctor, what conversations they could have, thats if he/they were a real person/persons, and would he/they class as split personalities, not sure about that one. Would be kool to listen in, arguments over dress sense alone, the sixth Doctor anyone, what was he on at the time? and the age of companions, and TARDIS decor too. I personally love the eigth Doctors take, massive gothic castle and library, kool.
1. Kate Bush - to look at, talk about her music and play footsie with me under the table! (yeh, I wish!)
2. Michael Caine - to tell me about what it was like making the Eagle Has Landed and Zulu!!!
3. Christopher Lee - Cause hes great!!!
4. Sean Connery - Cant believe I forgot him from my favorite Actors list...'surely some mistake miss moneypenny'...
5. Kenny Everett..comedy Genius and hed be a right laugh..R.I.P. Ken..
6. my wee niece Jennie, who died at age 11 with Cystic Fybrosis..not forgotten Darling..
7. Mussolini and possibly Alexei Sayle dressed as il Duce!!! Sayle for the Wacky Humour and Mussolini so id have someone to punch if I felt depressed!
8. Shane Mcgowan from the pogues (drink Trolley would be WELL away from him..but imagine the life stories that man could tell!!!
9. Carrie Fisher Dressed in her Jaba the hutt slave outfit, she would be forced to constantly deliver Quotes from star Wars for the other Guests.. hee hee..'help me obi Rab..youre my only hope'
10. Zoltan Hound of Dracula..to police things and Deal with Shane and mussolini if they got out of hand!!!!
Rachel Weiss, Gordon Ramsay, Betty Page and Sid James would wait the Tables!!!
all the best...
loved the other lists guys, some great guests there!! Can I come to your parties too? lol
pull up a chair and join in
Oh my have we got time to sort one out before New Year?..Imagine that!
Wow that would so darn kool, think we'd be all starstruck mind you.
My condolences on all the lovely people you've mentioned that have passed on from your lives. God rest. My choices :
Jesus - what was it that drove him to live and die like he did ( and we'd never run out of wine !) ?
John Lennon for both his imagination and non-conformity.
Bill Roache aka Corrie's Ken Barlow - I hate missing an episode.
Carol Vorderman, a sharp mathematical mind in attractive wrapping.
Charlotte Church for a song and the visual aspect.
Martin Luther King for his courage in such adversity.
Alex Ferguson ( tho I'll make sure Armchair Scouse isn't the cook !)
The Kilkenny hurling team and managment. Think Freddy Flintoff after the Ashes last year and you'll have an idea what they mean to people in my neck of the woods.
Guests of honour : my parents. Of course.
FAO Aidan.....please will you explain the rules and aim of hurling. I watch this game avidly when it is on and have only managed to work out that one rule seems to be to inflict maxium physical damage to the opposing team. Th sheer passion these players have for the game is amazing and makes for mind boggling viewing
Momma - rules of hurling :
Players CAN :
flick the ball from the ground with the end of the hurley ( which is flat & wide ) ;
catch the ball in mid-air or once flicked up ;
run with the ball on the end of the hurley like egg&spoon ;
hit the ball in mid-air or on the ground.
pick the ball from the ground ;
run with ball in hand for more than five steps ;
throw the ball.
A goal is worth three points.
A point is when the ball is over the crossbar between the posts.
A free-shot from 65 metres is awarded instead of a corner.
Players are amateur & depend on the generosity of fans to send them on a well-deserved holiday in the off-season , i.e. winter.
Sounds complicated to me....
Thanx Aidan...makes a difference when you know whats goingon on the pitch!
Sounds complicated to me....
Oggy daeling.... think Rugby with giant spoons and more violence!
Hope Mom&Og's kids become the Henry Shefflins ( top hurling star ) of Brum ! Did ye see the game live or on tv ?
Hope Mom&Og's kids become the Henry Shefflins ( top hurling star ) of Brum ! Did ye see the game live or on tv ?
Seen mainly tlvised gaames Aidan but did get to see one live game on the Isle of Man........ damn good game it was too!
BTW...... our wee man is built like a Prop forward so its going to b Rugger for him when he is older....got his first Rugger ball and England squad Sleepsuit of Santa
He'd probably get his game for England now the way things are going...
he's built like Jonah Lomu now.
Yeah he does.... but he is far better looking than Msr Lomu
OK, here is my list:
Peter Ustinov - No explanation necessary really.
Alexander the Great - Language barriers notwithstanding, he would have some great stories to tell.
Bill Bailey - The guy cracks me up whenever I see him. (also I can ask him how he does the receding thing gracefully, my hair isn't what it used to be)
Orson Welles - he has already been mentioned, but it's my list and I can invite who I like :p . I'm a bit of a film buff and the man fascinates me.
Catherine the Great - Just to find out if the stories about her were true ;)
Bill Hicks - A comedy Genius taken well before his time
Gregory Peck - I'm studying To Kill a Mockingbird at the moment for an MA and I think he might be able top provide some insight.
Jerome K. Jerome - The man was a top slacker of his day and I need some pointers
Stephen Fry - Can sit there being brainy
My brother Peter - You died just when you were starting to get interesting.
Actually, that has really depressed me, I've just realised that with the exception of Messrs. Bailey and Fry, all of my favourite people are all dead
Nice choice, Bill Bailey is so kool and funny, Gregory Peck a legend, and to kill a mockingbird is a class act, though prefer him in the Guns of Naverone.
Dear Nottrikk, know that the most special guests are with us at every meal time as long as we carry their memory.
Touchings words Momma, none more so than out beloved Nans.
Sorry to hear about Peter, nottrikk ( and Oggy's Nan ) God rest.
