oooh, beth - naughty naughty

I can think of so many interesting people that I would break bread with, in no particular order and couldnt' give a specific reason. They just strike a chord:

Winston Churchill
Leonardo Da Vinci
Sam Clemens (Mark Twain)
George Harrison
Eleanor of Aquitaine
Josephine Baker
Janis and Jimi
Daniel Pearl
Edward R. Murrow
Ernest Hemingway
Captain James Cook
Sitting Bull
Henry Ford
Dorothy Parker


there's probably more. I should rent a room.............

I've been thinking about this, and I think I'd have to say Carl Sagan.

Other contenders were: Ernest Hemingway, Humphrey Bogart, Ben Franklin, William Shakespeare, Cleopatra, Moses, Aristotle...

And Jesus of Nazareth, for sure.

I've read some of their biographies / autobiographies, I would would love to get them in the same room. James Beard, MFK Fisher, and Julia Child.

If I weren't inviting them to be angry... then I'd probibly like to have supper with the Brothers Grimm or Hans Christian Anderson... other possibilities are Einstein, Homer, Richard Harris, Elvis (not a HUGE fan but no denying he changed music alot...), Billy the Kid, Bonny Anne, Mary Read, and Mary Queen of Scots... hope they don't all come at once or won't have room at my table....

the author Eudora Welty...she writes so beautifully you can taste her descriptions of the family meal. I think she would be an incredibly interesting and gracious guest. So would Julia Child.
