Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, Seriously, Guess!

By Mrs. Julien | Comment Diversions | March 16, 2013 | Comments ()


thin man 3.jpg

Okay, I'm feeling pretty basic this weekend. Let's play dinner party with the following rules:

You are having a dinner party. You can invite anybody living, dead or undead, and, what the hell, you can invite up to 2 fictional characters and/or relatives. You've got 10 spots at the table:

Moi

Elizabeth I (a woman with power at a time when no women had power)
Cary Grant
Jim Henson
William Powell
e.e. cummings
Oscar Wilde
Leonardo da Vinci (how original)
Ronald Eustace Psmith
Jane Austen
My paternal grandmother
Mr. Julien

Ghandi
Beethoven
Abraham Lincoln
Kurt Vonnegut
Keith Moon
Billy Wilder
Jesus
Pete Townshend
William Shakespeare
Charles Dickens

GO!

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not


  • Dammit, Pajiba. I'm always a day late to these parties because I only check the site at work. (I've got too much crap to do when I get home.)

    Anyway, here's my list:

    Jesus
    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
    Albert Einstein
    Tom Brown, Jr.
    Dick Proenneke
    Bob Hope
    Ernest Hemingway
    Sam Houston
    Nathan Hale
    William de Moravia, 3rd Earl of Sutherland

  • Kballs

    My father
    My father
    My father
    My father
    My father
    My father
    My father
    My father
    My father
    My father

    What? I miss him . . .

  • rocky

    With Keith Moon, Kurt Vonnegut, Pete Townshend and William Shakespeare on the invite list, Mr Julien better have a really really extensive cellar. I guess Jesus could always make more if you ran short.

  • yemayah

    One version of my dinner party- actually an old fashioned barbeque, serve yourself and sit at the long wooden table- would include:

    Martin Luther King
    John Boehner -or- Paul Ryan (haven't decided)
    Harriet "Moses" Tubman
    Fannie Lou Hamer
    Damien Echols
    Bill O'Reilly
    Abraham Lincoln
    Hillary Clinton
    Niall Ferguson
    Winston Churchill
    Guest of Honor: Tina Fey (I know, cheating with 11, but some levity will be needed here)

    The alternates list included: Gandhi, Jesus, JFK, Bill Clinton, Michelle Obama, Bill O'Reilly, Ronald Reagan, Paul Ryan, Whoopie Goldberg

  • yemayah

    This the wish list for my totally self-indulgent birthday dinner party:

    Timothy Olyphant
    Walton Goggins
    Denzel Washington
    David Duchovny
    Sting
    Idris Elba
    Abraham Lincoln
    Barack Obama
    Brian Cox (particle physicist) or Michio Kaku (theoretical physicist)
    Julianne Moore

    (I left off Naomi Klein to my alternates list for the BBQ)

  • BWeaves

    The Doctors. Eccleston can stay home.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    Douglas Adams
    Neil Gaiman
    Terry Pratchett
    H.P. Lovecraft
    Beryl Markham
    Dana Lamb
    Percy Fawcett
    Osa Martin
    Karen Blixen

  • Phibbsy

    My all female heroine actress dinner:

    Milla Jovovich Alice, Leeloo and Jean D'Arc
    Cate Blanchett Elizabeth twice and Galadriel
    Kate Beckinsale Alice through the looking glass, and the vampire thing
    Robin Tunney in the Craft
    Famke Janssen Jean Grey and Xenia Onatopp
    Cameron Diaz Charlie's Angel
    Sarah Michelle Gellar Buffy
    Kristen Bell Veronica Mars
    Uma Thurman The Bride
    Michelle Rodriguez everything

    I would actually prepare and serve the dinner, after which they could fight over me, tournament-style. I wouldn't care who won. I thought about Jennifer Lawrence, but she's a bit young for my taste.

  • dizzylucy

    I can't even begin to list from throughout history, so I'm going to stay pretty current.

    Amy Poehler
    Tina Fey
    Jon Stewart
    Stephen Colbert
    Neil DeGrasse Tyson
    Timothy Olyphant
    Michelle Obama
    Craig Feguson
    Hillary Clinton
    Nathan Fillion

  • Kirstini

    Marion Cotillard

    Jessa Crispin of Bookslut

    Zadie Smith

    Armistead Maupin

    Patti Smith

    My fella, who would be dribbling all over

    David Bowie

    Amy Poehler, to stop the company getting a wee bit precious

    Robert Mitchum

    Jean Ross, the real person behind Sally Bowles (and a lot more fascinating)

    Serving dinner and providing entertainment: Tom Hardy, Karen O, Adrian Brody, Owen Wilson.

  • Oscar Wilde
    Stephen Fry
    Dorothy Parker
    Mark Twain
    Christopher Moore
    GrĂ¡inne O'Malley
    Eleanor of Aquitaine
    Machiavelli
    Emma Goldman
    Neil Gaiman

    My husband would cook and my sons serve, so they could enjoy the conversation, as well.

  • Angus

    I see your list and I replace it with my own.

    Henry Rollins

    Dorothy Parker

    Alexander Woolcott

    Lucretia Borgia

    James Earl Jones

    Audrey Hepburn

    Stephen Fry

    Peter O'Toole

    George Carlin

    Neytiri

    I contemplated inviting Chad Kroeger just to watch Henry beat the shit out of him, but decided it'd be more fun to try to get into the Na'vi's pants.

  • Okay, but are you still cooking, or do I have to do it?

  • Angus

    You'll be off in the corner mauling Henry, so I guess I am.

  • jen

    1. tom waits

    2. chan marshall

    3. royal tennenbaum

    4. john cassavetes

    5. gilda radner

    6. david letterman

    7. hunter s. thompson

    8. mr. rogers

    9. billy joel

    10. nina simone

  • I don't host dinner parties because my house is where I go to get away from people. It's like my Fortress of Solitude. I have been known to have people meet me at restaurants though. So my list would be:

    Ronald Reagan
    William F. Buckley
    John Wayne
    Clint Eastwood
    My father, because he would kill me if he missed out on meeting the above gentlemen.
    P.J. O'Rourke
    Hulk Hogan
    Sam Adams
    Boris Karloff
    Ann Coulter

  • Phibbsy

    How about some real Republicans, Like Lincoln, La Follette, T.R. and Ike?

  • Because Lincoln is a perennial favorite on lists of 'Historical people you'd like to _____ with' and I figured I'd branch out. Plus, if I wanted to hear about WWII, I'd invite Wild Bill Donovan and if I invited TR The Internet would crash my party and I don't need any porn and cat pictures.

  • AvaLehra

    1. My mom
    2. Octavio Paz (so my mom can chat with him, too)
    3. William Carlos Williams
    4. Mindy Kaling
    5. Terrence Malick
    6. Jon Stewart
    7. Tilda Swinton
    8. Michelle Obama
    9. George Harrison
    10. Charlie Chaplin

    I wouldn't invite most writers or painters I like because they would be either major downers or drunk as a skunk and would ruin dinner.

  • SlurpyDurp

    David Foster Wallace (I'm in the middle of Infinite Jest- I couldn't resist)

    Lincoln

    Ernest Hemingway

    F. Scott Fitzgerald

    Emily Dickinson

    Paul Thomas Anderson

    After three or three courses of exhausting (but absolutely incredible) philosophical/moral/cultural conversation and debate, I think we would all need a little lighthearted back and forth, leading to my next couple of choices)

    Paul Rudd

    Jennifer Lawrence (also the eye candy)

    And to finish off the lineup:

    Ron Swanson

    My girlfriend (Collective awwwwwww)

  • Listening to Hemingway and Fitzgerald bicker would be fantastic.

  • Lovely Bones

    Hell, I could make a list just out of commenters on here I'd like to hang out with. . Future Comment Diversion?

  • Mrs. Julien

    How would that work exactly? Also, I think there was trouble once when a thread devolved into naming which commenters we'd (general we, not me) would like to bang. It got out of hand.

  • Lovely Bones

    Hmm, point taken, Mrs. J.

  • Lovely Bones

    Truman Capote

    Daria Morgendorffer (matured, post-series/college-age Daria)

    Tina Fey

    Willow Rosenberg

    Bayard Rustin,

    Franklin Delano Roosevelt

    Douglas Adams (seated next to my girlfriend/between her and I, she will be so happy)

    Mary Shelley

    Anne Frank

    Jim Henson

    And my girlfriend will be there, of course. I have no reason to need to wish for or invite her.

    I wish my girlfriend could invite ten additional people, I'd love to see who would come out of that. In fact, I will ask her, when I get the chance.

    Alternates include: Sylvia Plath, Federico Fellini, Werner Herzog, Donald Glover, Jane Austen Avatar Aang, Fire Lord Zuko, Vladimir Nabokov, Ray Bradbury, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Will Arnett (*Sighs*) among various others.

    The author of 50 shades so i could beat the living crap out of her.

  • kirbyjay

    I'm torn between what would make a cohesive dinner party and who I would like to have a one on one with ( conversation, not sex)
    Let's go with the one on one, like speed dining...
    Amy Poehler/Tina Fey....that's a given, 2 funny females, just like my own homegirls
    Steven Hyde.....for a 70's flashback and a really cool circle
    Lee Marvin..... so manly you can hear his balls clacking together, though I'd hide the hard stuff, beer only
    Damien Echols...already spoke to him, amazed by his intelligence and his serenity
    Russell Crowe...my favorite actor so yeah, we'd talk about acting. Love his accent, love the bad boy
    Mila Kunis...Why Ashton Kutcher? Why?
    Stephen Colbert/Jon Stewart....smart funny? Nothing better
    JFK....Johnny, we hardly knew ye
    Ted Bundy....why?
    David Niven....a great storyteller with a British accent
    Freddy Gilchrist....My friend who died when I was 17, funniest guy on the planet, we have a lot of time to make up for

  • ,

    My newspaper regularly runs a feature in which some semiprominent townie is asked who he/she would most like to have dinner with, living or dead, and most of them pick some deceased relative. Jesus Christ. I mean, really, you could have dinner with Jesus Christ and instead you'd choose great-grandpa? Or mommy or daddy, someone you've already had dinner with 10,000 times? How fucking boring. I'm picking Jesus and figuring all my dead relatives would understand.

    Actually, though, I'm starting with

    1. Judas Iscariot

    seated next to

    2. Jesus Christ

    Ooooooo, it is ON! Let's find out if all that forgiveness stuff was serious.

    Bonus: If we run out of wine ...

    3. Jeanne d'Arc

    Because crazy teen-girl visionaries who lead armies in battle are fucking hot.

    Seated next to

    4. Alexander the Great

    Talkin' ' leadership, and maybe fucking on the table.

    5. Marilyn Monroe.

    Because it's gonna be my birthday dinner, and she's going to sing me "Happy Birthday." Like that.

    Seated next to

    6. Babe Ruth.

    Because I'm pretty damn sure the two babes would like each other.

    7. John Lennon

    Seated next to

    8. John Lydon

    Rock and roll meets mock and drool.

    9. Da Vinci

    Seated next to

    10. Gallileo

    Aw damn, means I have to leave Rasputin off ...

    I reserve the right to edit this list when I wake up sober.

  • ,

    Well, then can be a standby/last-minute-cancellation/wait list, right? I mean, it would be impolite of me to have two empty seats at a table like that because Jesus had the flu and Judas hanged himself again or something.

    So ...

    On standby:

    Rasputin

    Seated next to

    Machiavelli

  • chanohack

    Holy shit these lists are fantastic. Can't we just have one big party, and each bring ten people?

  • Lovely Bones

    I swear that I didn't have his massive comment list assassinated so that I could be the one compile the Master List. (Because apparently I can do that. Maybe this whole time Prince Joffrey has been acting behind a friendly guise under your noses, and you never knew!)

  • linnyloo

    Someone with more time on their hands than I have needs to compile this shit into a Master List. I see a lot of awesome, and some overlap (given as we all have wonderful taste) but not nearly as much as I'd expect.

  • Lovely Bones

    I volunteer myself for this task, but where should it be written? And should I wait until I'm certain no one else will contribute?

  • CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!

    The Doctor
    David Tennant so I can listen to his conversation with the Doctor
    My future great-great grandson or granddaughter, at my age, assuming such a person will someday exist (you didn't give rules about time travel, but since I apparently know the Doctor, I think it's fair, and it seems like future people fall under "undead," no? Oh shit, does this count as a third relative? Or a second fictional person?)

    This list is sort of an unintentional, 90% dead sausage-fest. But what the hell, it's my fantasy dinner party and these guys are the ones I'd like to pick to spend an evening with. This is also assuming they'll be attending in their prime rather than some grotesque living dead format...

    Ernie Kovacs
    Douglas Adams
    Freddie Mercury
    Alfred Hitchcock
    George Carlin
    Sergio Leone
    Buster Keaton
    Graham Chapman
    Bill Hicks
    ...and one living guy, Gary Larson

    Guess I'd better break out the shovels. These guys won't unearth themselves.

  • SorayaS

    Ohhh Freddie Mercury- I'm so jealous he's going to your party and not mine (because I forgot to invite him!!)

  • Aaron Anthony

    James Bond (Craig or Connery style, either works for me)
    Han Solo

    Philip K Dick
    Donald Glover

    ...um can My table be bigger cause I have way more ppl that need to attend (The Batch, Fassbender, Brian Williams, John Williams, John Adams, Colbert, Natalie Portman, Charlize Theron, Tina Fey, MLK, Malcolm X, Jason Bateman, NPH, JGL, Felicia Day, Anne Hathaway, I really could go on and on).

  • That Bond choice is inspired.

  • Matt C.

    My girlfriend
    Matt Damon
    Kurt Vonnegut
    Bruce Springsteen
    Buffy the Vampire Slayer
    Bill Lawrence
    Paul O'Neill
    Tina Fey
    Rhett Miller
    Ellen DeGeneres

    based solely on people I would want to have dinner with. If I wanted the conversation to be super-excellent, I'd have to fit in NPH and Craig Ferguson, among others.

  • chanohack

    Ellen DeGeneres!!! Well, my list sucks now.

    Catherine the Great

  • Melissa D

    Ooooo, some really interesting choices there!

  • 81chains

    Kinda depressing to see only two women listed out of twenty total slots.

  • I prefer to blame the patriarchy which failed umpteen millenia's worth of fantastic women...

  • Phibbsy

    I thought of a ladies party:

    Hatshepsut
    Cleopatra
    Livia Drusilla
    Theodora of Byzantium
    Elizabeth I
    Catherine the Great
    Victoria
    Dowager Empress Cixi
    Isabella of Castille
    Maria Theresa

    If you don't think Cleopatra was influential enough, substitute Madame du Pompadour.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    holy crap. Is anyone leaving that party alive? Might as well throw in a Borgia.

    But I give you props for Theodora, a woman I never tire reading about.
    [edited: ah, hah, I think, thirty seconds later, when I see you comment on Livia's inclination towards poison}

  • Phibbsy

    Rats. I hadn't thought of Lucrezia. Fine woman, she was. I don't see them any worse than Genghis Khan or Edward I. (I also wish I'd thought of Freddie Mercury.)

    Have you read any of David Drake/Eric Flint's Belisarius series? Lots of Theodora.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I have not read Belisarius, so thanks for that, I'll check it out.

    No, definitely not worse than Genghis or Edward I, but I wouldn't be inclined to invite either of them over for dinner either.

    But your consortium would definitely have a lot in common to discuss.

  • Natallica

    Hatshepsut is my historical girl-crush

    Nigela Lawson (who would also be making dinner).

    Alternates: Craig Ferguson, Louie C.K., Sterling Archer, Don Draper, Johnny Cash, Che Guevara, Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart.

  • koko temur

    Gengghis Khan, because its not a party till someone drinks horse blood.

  • Jaye Tyler is an excellent choice.

  • toblerone

    Unfortunately though I've stacked the dinner with my favorite women, none of whom will probably be impressed that they are being ignored by me because of a 1 season fictional character.

  • Leigh

    John Lennon
    Paul McCartney
    George Harrison
    Ringo Starr
    Mark Twain
    Buster Keaton
    Jane Austen
    Glenn Miller
    Jane Goodall
    My grandmother
    Don't know how well Jane Goodall would fit in, it seems like the rest of us might get pretty rowdy, but she's my hero, hopefully she would get as crazy as the rest of us.

  • BiblioGlow

    Jim Henson
    Mister Rogers
    Terry Pratchett
    Susanna Clarke
    Ray Bradbury
    Leonardo da Vinci
    Emma Thompson

    Oh but now I really want Mark Twain and Stephen Moffat and Paul Newman and C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien and Robert Heinlein and Harper Lee and Kurt Vonnegut and Merlin and Spock and Tesla...
