By no means is this an original question but just for fun if you could invite 5 people to dinner dead or alive who would you pick and why?
There are a whole heap of people who come to my mind but I would probably go with
1. Audrey Hepburn- she seems like such an incredibly passionate person. I would break the ice talking with her about Chocolate, dancing, givenchy before moving onto her pursuits in Africa.
2. Dalai Lama 14- I think he would get along swimmingly with Hepburn. Compassion is something I’m working on. I am inspired by his personal philosophy removed from Buddhism And think he would one a wonderful person to listen to.
3. Alfred Eisenstaedt-a man who I imagine has some amazing stories about the 20th century.
4. Ann Sullivan- for a lesson in loyalty and Patience. I would love to hear about her studies and travels.
5. Richard Curtis- cause everything he does I find so incredibly hilarious- we could spend the night talking about Australia and Atkinson.
Who would you pick bees?

My first four guests would be:
Cyrus the Great
Alexander the Great
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)
