3 people you want to invite to dinner

Bon Appetite has a back page interview with celebrities the last question is what 3 people would you like to invite to dinner dead or alive I want to ask the same question but you can go as many people you want instead of only 3.
My list would go on forever but you guys go first.

Omigosh, jp. I see that page every issue and my list, like yours, is longer than my arm. I think I would have to have many meals with many trios.

Let's see, for dinner number 1:

Robin Williams (Better not have any silly food.)
Julia Child (I'd pick her brain until there was nothing left.)
James Patterson (I'm fascinated with his imagination.)

I think these three would be great fun. Julia always enjoyed fun, so I can see her and Robin Williams going at it in delightful humor. I love Patterson, especially his "Max" books.

I’ll stick to five to make it interesting and somewhat challenging.

Arnold Swarzenegger – Not only do I love his movies (yeah, it’s a cheesy guy thing), but his drive and determination (even to this day) is incredible. The way he pushed himself during the body building days and invented new techniques and basically revolutionized the sport and practice is amazing. I could pick his brain for hours.

Bruce Lee – Simply amazing individual. Drive, determination, intuitiveness, and skill is very impressive.

Stephen King – His imagination and ideas could keep us up for days.

King Tut (Tutankhamun) – What was life like back then….and HOW did they build those pyramids!

Dick Proenneke – He was simply amazing. If you haven’t seen it, try to get a copy of “Alone in the Wilderness”. Awesome. The things he could teach and talk about….wow.

No brainer.

George Washington.

Thomas Jefferson.

Benjamin Franklin.

Keep the maderia flowing and keep the tape recorder running.

What a fabulous question, jp! I know this is going to rolling around in my head all evening but the first people that come to mind that I would group together are:

The Dalai Llama
Steve Hawking
Isaac Asimov
Peter Gabriel
Mother Theresa
Julia Child
Phil Collins
Jimi Hendrix
Luciano Pavarotti
Kinky Friedman
Jimmy & Roselyn Carter
Margaret Meade
Robin Williams (I'm with you, Katie)
Albert Einstein
Kurt Vonnegut
John Irving

There are so many more and I can't even begin to imagine how I would group them. I would never want to have any more than 4 or 5 at any one time because I would certainly want to talk with them in depth!

Oh my gosh, how thoughtless of me! I just took it for granted that ya'll knew that all the good folks at DC were first on my list! (If I didn't, who would cook?)
