Dream tea parties meme - WARNING: a time sink!!! [Mar. 26th, 2004|01:25 pm]
[Current Mood |amusedamused]

CELEBRITY TEA PARTY (courtesy of albadore, through theferrett)
List nine celebrities you would invite to a tea party for their wit and conversation. Don't invite anyone just for eye candy. Musicians, writers, PBS hosts, convicts, politicians, etc. all count (not just actors)...

This does not qualify as a carefully chosen mix of people, but they amuse me:
Garrison Keillor and Bill Bryson, because there would be great stories told
George Lucas, because somebody needs to straighten that man out
Al Franken and Anne Coulter, strictly for the entertainment value of watching them go after each other.
Jimmy Carter, because I respect what he has done for humanity and have always wanted to meet him.
Viggo Mortensen, and not just for the eye candy aspects, he is an accomplished artist in many fields. I think he would like a chance to talk quietly with Jimmy Carter and me while the circus was underway.
Margaret Atwood and Starhawk, because listening to their different views on feminism and world politics would be fascinating.

CELEBRITY TEA PARTY II: Time-travel/universal translator edition
List nine deceased famous people you'd invite to a fabulous tea party. Choose them for their wits and conversation, strange behavior, etc., but not their appearance or fame.

Clarence Darrow and Mark Twain, two amazing showmen
Benjamin Franklin, because he and Mark Twain really need to meet each other, and I think he'd get a kick out of time traveling
Thomas Jefferson and Martin Luther King
William Shakespeare
Jane Austin
John Muir and Charles Darwin, scientists and dreamers

CELEBRITY TEA PARTY III: Fictional character edition
This time invite nine fictional characters from books, comics, film, etc., to your tea party, but remember--you're inviting them for their conversation, not their looks.

Yeow. This gets tough....

My first thought is just "The Fellowship of the Ring" because that's nine and, yeah!

My next fictional tea party for nine:
Luke Skywalker, because I have some questions about the Force
Morgan la Fey (Mists of Avalon version), since a discussion about the differences between magic and the Force could be fascinating
Scarlett O'Hara because she's spunky
Sherlock Holmes and Hannibal Lecter - now there's an intellectual combo for you!
Captain Picard (who better for tea?)
Spider Jerusalem because he would give the whole bunch here a run for their money
Aeryn Sun and John Crichton, because I would love to just talk with them and hear their adventures, and it doesn't hurt that they are very easy on the eyes [g].

Good ones!

I think I'd like to crash your parties. You can crash mine too, but I think you did a better job. Mine are here.

No, you have great choices, too! I'm amused we both went for Viggo [g]

We have similar tastes. We could share. :)

I just finished "Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them" so the Al Franken, Anne Coulter combo sounds hilarious.

I hated "Gone With The Wind" because I thought Scarlett O'Hara was the most unbelievable bitch.

I dunno, man. It sounds like fun, but Boromir would be over in the corner while all the hobbits gave him nasty looks.

I definitely like your choices!! I just did the Celebrity version (for now) in my LJ, so I guess I'll have to catch up.
