Five People

Nick  and I were watching The Aviator on Saturday night.  We got to talking about people we would like to have a conversation with--living or dead or fictional.  Nick then asked which would be my top 5 in any order.  So we listed the ones we thought we would like to have dinner with.

Nick's picks:
  • Howard Hughes
  • Belgarath--from a set of fantasy books by David Eddings
  • Jimi Hendrix
  • Caesar
  • Robin Williams
My picks:
  • Cary Grant
  • Polgara--from the same set of fantasy books by David Eddings
  • My Father--who died when I was three month old.
  • Angelina Jolie
  • Queen Elizabeth
 
We did not have to tell why we would want to talk with these people.  Why would totally change who we wanted to talk to.  And in looking back, I think I might change one or two of my picks.  But those were the ones I said at the time of the conversation and I think I'll let them stand.

So, who would you choose?  It can be anyone alive, dead or fictional.  This could be interesting.

OMG...you guys have read the Belgariad and Malloreon?! (And obviously love it, as well?) It's my most favorite fantasy series of all time. I would have loved to have a conversation with Poledra.

Come to think of it, with David Eddings and his wife, too!

Wow...THAT is a tough and intriguing question!

1. Wade Redden (my fave hockey player)
2. Elvis Presley
3. My Granny (she died when I was 2, but everyone says I'm a lot like her)
4. Ryan Gosling (seems like a famous guy who would be easy to talk to)
5. Ellen DeGeneres (because she's such a hoot)

I'm also thinkin' that Rob Pattinson would be a good choice too - he wouldn't even have to talk, I could just gaze at him... :)

Goodness! That's enough to get me thinking.
I would probably pick my mom's mom, because I never got to meet her, and I apparently look like her,
Fred Rogers always had such a great view of life, I'd like to bask in his wisdom.
Hmmm...I'll have to give the rest some serious thought.

The first two were easy;
1. Thomas Jefferson
2. My grandmother (she died before I became interested in our family history
3. JR's grandpa from Ireland
OMG! Now, I'm stuck
4. Paul McCartney (about Linda and the 60s)
5. Abraham Lincoln

I'd definitely want to have a converstation with both sets of my great-grandparents. I bet they saw and experienced some things in their lifetime that I won't and I'd love to know what it was like for them. No cell phones, no TV's, no computers...can you imagine?
