Separate tickets, I think. I'm an independent woman. Or we could alternate buying rounds, though I think Twain would wiggle out of it, the old rascal.

Laurel & Hardy - sorry I'd be greedy and want both.

Why certainly. And Wolfgang could play "In The Good Old Summertime."

...theme and 32 variations on it. Improvised, of course.

Come to think of it, In the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia would make a great subject for a set of piano variations.

I was thinking that maybe we could call in Aaron too and have a concerto for three hands.

c.d.

By the way, I am also a big Alan Watts fan. You probably know this but a number of his lectures are available on YouTube.

Eric Arthur Blair (George Orwell)

Woody Guthrie

My parents - because, sadly, I never shared an adult drink or adult conversation with either of them.

First off.. I am a bit sad that nobody picked me!!!

This is the
"old dinner party game" where you can invite 3 people from history.. and everyone will speak the same language (so you can't say so and so can't come because you wouldn't understand them).. my picks are usually

1-Lao Tzu
2- Harpo Marx
3- this once changes...sometimes it's Johannes Kepler or Einstein (or Tesla)....other time Babe Ruth or Jack Dempsey, and still other times I would want someone I actually did have several dinners with...he was truly the most interesting man in the world (commercials be damned) and I miss him terribly, Bert Randolph Sugar.. seriously, the man was part Damon Runyon, part Groucho Marx, part Ernest Hemmingway and all fun!!!.. a special man.. problem is, if Bert were there nobody else would get a word in (but we would ALL be entertained!!)
