  • Wedding: May 2015

My first four guests would be:

Cyrus the Great

Alexander the Great


Genghis Khan

I love history and I’m drooling at the thought of being able to listen to the conversation should any of these men – who all forged great empires – ever themselves in the same room. Just the stories they would be able to tell about their personal and political lives, and military accounts etc. Plus all the hypothetical dick-measuring of whose empire is better would just be funny.

The last guest would be George R.R. Martin, and I will hold him hostage until he tells me how the book series end and who Jon Snow’s mother is

justjade:  Just five?! Oh geeze. . .

1. Anne Boleyn – I am obsessed with the Tudor dynasty of Britain and my favorite personality from that time period is Queen Anne Boleyn. She just absolutely fascinates me.

2. Pope Francis – he is a genuinely compassionate man and has a wonderful attitude towards life. I no longer follow Catholicism, but I think he would have a ton of interesting insights about modern day issues and solutions.

3. Harriet Tubman – she must have some seriously awesome stories about the Underground Railroad. I would absolutely love to sit down with her and just listen to her tell her story.

4. Edgar Allan Poe – because I am a HUGE Poe fanatic! Seriously, this would be a dream come true.

5. My Fiance – because I want to share this experience with him. 🙂

(And if I could invite my Fiance and still invite another person, then I would choose Dietrich Bonhoeffer – a pacifist and German Preacher who put aside his personal beliefs and was executed for taking part in a plot to kill Hitler during WWII; he felt that taking one life to save many was worth dying for and he is a personal hero of mine)
