Cigars and scotch in a smoky jazz bar with Jake Barnes, Lady Brett Ashley, Jay Gatsby, Daisy Buchanan and my friend Jenny.

I'm not sure I'd pick Bono. I love his voice and his songs, but I'm not sure if he's a great conversationalist, and that's what I'm basing my picks upon.

I'd pick Conan O'Brien: He's smart, funny and would make it incredibily hard to finish my meal since I'd be laughing the whole time.

Woody Allen: for the same reasons as Conan.

Bill O'Reilly: We share enough in common concerning politics that I'd have some fun debating the issues with comedians like Woody and Conan.

Ralph Nader: He'd add some substance and dry wit.

Adolph Hitler: just because he's so infamous and mysterious. I wonder if anyone else would pick this guy.

·Plato - i had the honour to translate many of his texts, would like to know what he actually meant. (would like to invite Mr Seneca for the same reason but that would be too much for one night id say)
·Duke of Wellington - to tell me more about the battle of waterloo (i have this weird interest in warry stuff.. would have invited nappers if only my french wasnt this bad)
·Angelina Jolie - i like her and id like to know what makes her collect the things she collects and what makes her do the things she does etc. (dunno if this means billy bob comes over too...)
·Timo B - b/c ive never talked to him and dont know him at all. and since this whole dinner is as impossible as me ever sending a pic to a certain op, hed be perfect on this list
·MC - my bestest friend, shes absolutely the coolest person on this planet and i wouldnt mind at all it my dinner turns out to be a big mistake, cos of the guests i chose, if shes there.. she could still turn it into a party.. go mc!

Dinner w/any 5 ppl huh....Only 5??? Awww well ok...first I'd order out food 'coz right now my cooking skill are on the level of ..what cooking skills lol so 5ppl...hmmm

#1.Bono- mainly because I somehow see me having a lot in common w/the man and....well I very much doubt my boyfriend would even let Edge come 100ft near the front door! LOL
#2.Sting- Do I even have to explain Why I'd want that sexy brit singer over @ my place?? Come on..private lessons on Tantra!
#3.Jim Morrison- The man was ahead of his time and it would be such a dream to get a chance to talk to him
#4.Anne Rice- I LOVE her Vampire Cronical books!
#5.The Devil- I'm curious enough to want to sit down and hear his side of the story... yea call me insane if you want but part of me has always wondered why he became the devil from his own mind.

Fear Not..For I'll Be Watching You. And I know what you're all thinking. FOR SHAME!!

Sorry, a lot of you are going to have an empty seat at your dinner party.

The number one requested guest respectfully declines all invitations.

He says the last time he came to supper ,...

Well, it ended badly for him.

ozaurora, that's so sweet that you'd wanna bring your dog to dinner.

i also like the fact that quite a few people named friends and family members.

so here's mine, for non-famous:

1. my husband (yay!)
2. my grandfather who died before i was born
3. my mom
4. my dad
5. my grandfather (ummm, my mom's dad, oops)

and for famous:
1. jesus (hehe, i liked what deep said, so maybe this wouldn't be a good choice.)
2. nick rhodes
3. bono
4. ali hewson
5. trudie styler (if i invited her husband i don't think anyone would get to talk to him or bono )

i like the highlife and the lowlife. it's just the bit in between i find boring.
ME! all day, every day!

Well, here are mine - guess I kind of cheated - and its sooooooooooo difficult to pick 5, could really pick 5 from music, 5 from film, 5 from history etc.. but anyway, as music is such a huge part of my life here they are:

My Girlfriend (wouldn't have anyone there ahead of her)
Bono and Ali (counting that as one cos its only one invitation :P)
Jeff Buckley
Neil Finn
Russell Crowe

think they're all interesting people really. No way I'd have royalty at my dinner - we want to enjoy ourselves.
..oh and I'd cook (thats pressure for you eh?)

Reminded of me of this bit from Father Ted (and God created Woman)
Polly Clarke (author): "I always thought that if Joyce, Keats and Lawrence were sitting in a room together and Dostoevsky walked in, there'd be a hell of a fight for the last piece of oudding"
(Ted hesitates, then laughs loudly, turns away with a look that says "what the feck does that mean?")

Then we sat on our own star and dreamed of the way that we were and the
way that we wanted to be
Then we sat on our own star and dreamed of the way that I was for you
and that you were for me
And then we long to dance the night away
And turned to each other saying 'I love you, baby I love you'
Oh the way that young lovers do
