What question would I ask each of my dinner guests.

This is going back to my previous post of having a dinner party and who would I invite (the tongue in cheek) funny one not the serious one… hmm ok here then https://ramblingsfromamum.wordpress.com/2012/12/20/challenge-2-from-i-need-help  so if you haven’t been following (pardon the pun) you simply need to get a wriggle on and catch up.

1st guest – Dalai Lama – “So your Holiness, trip over your robes much?”

2nd guest – The White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland – “Seriously dude, ever think of buying a wrist watch?”

5th guest – Jerry Lewis – “You can tell me, Dean didn’t really like ‘the drink’ did he?”

7th guest – Albert Einstein – “So ..what exactly is the equivalence of matter and energy, E = mc2 (and by implication, the ability of gravity to “bend” light), the existence of “rest energy”, and the basis of nuclear energy….really mean?”

and that folks is all





The serious side # 2 of the Challenge – Guess who’s coming to dinner.

My 60th Post for the Month – Yes I ramble – yes I write – it’s what I do.

Written at the request of ruleofstupid…who has helped me get through my days & fingers crossed may continue. So I thank you and courtesy .

Your perfect dinner party, who are your guests and why (anyone from any time in history).

William Shakespeare – A respected Poet and Playwright – to sit next to such a talented individual would surely give me inspiration.

Leonardo Di Vinci – A diversely talented painter who also was a writer, a musician, an engineer, a scientist – so much could be learnt from this man. As I also paint (though I haven’t for some time) I would be enthralled to have him as a dinner guest.

Harry Houndini – I was always intrigued by the Movie ( with Tony Curtis). I want to know how he performed his death defying stunts.

John Merrick – The Elephant Man – To have been haunted his entire life because of his deformity shows strength and courage and I would be honoured to hear his story.

Meryl Streep – Simply because this is a woman who I have admired for years on the screen, I find her acting skills second to none.

Neil Armstrong – The first person to walk on the moon – To find out what those first steps that he took felt and meant to him.

Dalai Lama – To hear words of wisdom, his peacefulness that could only radiate into my soul.

Ann Sullivan – Who taught Helen Keller – again strength and courage and more so her tenacity & belief that she could teach the young Helen.

My  list could go on but the below are just because (unfortunately some are no longer with us)

George Clooney


Bette Davis

Heath Ledger

Princess Diana

Henry VII

Ann Frank

Jerry Lewis

Mother Theresa


Challenge # 2 From I need Help – Guess who’s coming for dinner.

This one kindly requested from ruleofstupid  an interesting and talented human being.

At your perfect dinner party, who are your guests and why (anyone from any time in history)

I have embellished on the theme somewhat..

Here it goes…

“Dinner is served in the dining room please, if you’ll come this way”. “I have put name cards of where you are sitting”.

“Just as we should cultivate more gentle and peaceful relations with our fellow human beings, we should also extend that same kind of attitude towards the natural environment.  Morally speaking, we should be concerned for our whole environment”.

So Dalai what your trying to tell me is I shouldn’t have used cardboard..from paper..and shouldn’t have cut down the tree?

“I’m late. I’m late. For a very important date. No time to say “Hello, Goodbye”.  I’m late, I’m late, I’m late.”

“No you aren’t late at all, now would you PLEASE take your seat and stop jumping on the table”.

“I did the Ed Sullivan show four times. I did the Steve Allen show. I did the Jackie Gleason show”.

“That’s really cool King, however the dinner will get cold if we don’t start”.

“There comes a time in every woman’s life when the only thing that helps is a glass of champagne.”

“Right then Blanche I’ll get that immediately then shall I, or shall a serve you up a dead parakeet under glass instead!?”

“People hate me because I am a multifaceted, talented, wealthy, internationally famous genius.”

“Tickets on yourself Jerry?”

“Charles dear, use the Royal Flight; they keep one plane on permanent standby, in case I should kick the bucket.”

“What??? You haven’t even touched your food yet!”

“If A is a success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut.”

“No shit Sherlock – I mean Einstien, how about you shutting it and eat?!”

“My name is Sherlock Holmes. It is my business to know what other people don’t know”.

“Yep- we got it, he’s Einstein – your Sherlock what you don’t know is that you’ll get a clip in the ear if you don’t start eating”!

“It is not these well-fed long-haired men that I fear, but the pale and the hungry-looking”.

“Give me strength they wouldn’t be hungry looking Julias if they would start eating!”

“When you don’t have any money, the problem is food. When you have money, it’s sex. When you have both, it’s health. If everything is simply jake, then you’re frightened of death”.

“I am starting to lose it here people – there IS food there – in front of you –  and why Marilyn are you bringing up sex?!”


“That’s not nice Santa now eat”.

”Some hae meat and canna eat, And some wad eat that want it; But we hae meat, and we can eat, And sae the Lord be thanket.”

“What the… ok I’m sure Burnsy wasn’t on my invitation list and if you will kindly notice there IS MEAT!”

“He was a man of an unbounded stomach”.

“How can you say that Henry when he has’ne even touched his food!”

“Young people in particular, I appeal to you: bear witness to your faith through the digital world!….Employ these new technologies to make the Gospel known, so that the Good News of God’s infinite love for all people, will resound in new ways across our increasingly technological world!”

“Ok who the hell is sending text messages at the dinner table, you’ve set Benedict off again”.

“I feast on wine and bread, and feasts they are”.

“Michael …sweety… I have provided MORE than wine and bread here”.

The End….

Perhaps the next one will be more serious….
