Suppertime With Some Select Attendees

"My idea of good company, Mr. Elliot, is the company of clever, well-informed people, who have a great deal of conversation; that is what I call good company."

"You are mistaken," said he gently, "that is not good company, that is the best."

The invitations have been sent. The place cards have been set. It's time for my dream dinner party!

For this hypothetical banquet, I was limited to ten guests, hence the delay in posting. After much agonizing and a little help from Amanda, Drew, and Matt, the company has finally been decided. All invited were chosen with the goal of quality conversation in mind.

1. Jane Austen

2. Winston Churchill

3. The Doctor

4. John Green

5. Ashton Kutcher

6. Kylie

7. Marilyn Monroe

8. Thomas S. Monson

9. Sarahbeth

10. Patrick Stewart

Dinner will be a traditional twelve-course meal. I may never have another opportunity to actually utilize the knowledge that you start with the outermost fork, so this seems like as good a time as any to go all out.

Listening to: Invincible
Reading: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins


  1. You can't just leave us hanging like this! There is so much fantastic conversation and witty banter that I want to be able to hear about. Can't you give us at least a few snippets?
    Did Kylie and Winston get into a heated debate during the cheese course? What do Tommy and the Doctor have to talk about during the main course? And what of Jane's wonderfully snarky comments? Don't we get a glimpse of any of that?

  2. Ashton Kutcher? Really? I like most of the rest of this list immensely, but...him?
