My next I have to confess would be partly for the eye candy - Johnny Depp. More than that though, he is the star of many of my favourite movies and has worked many times with one of my favourite directors, Tim Burton, so I could just imagine the interesting stories he'd have to tell.
At this point of the evening, I've realised that most of my choices are male (don't tell my husband) and all are living...
Dr Karl Kruszelnicki would have to be in there. Again, another amazing mind accompanied with loads of energy and humor. Ahhh.. I don't think this dinner party is ending until the wee hours of the morning somehow...
And then to add another fantastic mind, another creative soul, Michael Leunig. For many years, his poetry, his writing and his artwork have been a guiding light in my life. I have heard him speak a couple of times and do (or rather did) own a couple of books signed by him with my own special cartoon drawn in (one duck, one angel). I say "did" as... well, something I'm trying not to face until I move back to Australia... almost everything we own there, almost everything we put into storage including my very large and very precious book collection have been destroyed... So, if I had Leunig over, I could get new books signed!
This poem by Leunig was my meditation mantra for many years.
And lastly, finally, a female! I don't think a dinner party like this would be complete without my great mate Christine. I mean, I need to have someone there to go over the stories of the night with again and again for the rest of my life. And Chris is always the life of the party, can talk to anyone and would hold her own with any amazing mind.
So, there's my dinner party! A fun night indeed me thinks! I'm off to go and gatecrash other dinner parties now! Thank you Lily and Agathe for the theme this week!
