I would like to invite Laurel K Hamilton over for dinner just to thank her for having the courage to continue to write amazing fiction about the joys and some of the real pitfalls of polyamory, without making it a sensational type of experience. I'd love to just as if her ideas are based on research or real life.
More than likely I'd invite her to meet at a good restaurant and if things go well over to the house for coffee after dinner.
I would love to invite Jane Austin over just to see if she still holds her views about the world given the changes from her time to ours. She had such a piercing eye and quick challenging mind. It would be fun to just have a conversation about how much has changed and how much has stayed the same. I think it would be amazing to cook for Ms. Austin and I'd probably plan a nice sit down dinner and chat.
I would Love, Love, Love to have dinner with Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain) because I hear he was an amazing dinner companion! He had such a way with small talk and then could launch into some pretty biting, and, yet accurate observations about the people around him as well as the state of the world in general. I would love to take him to a nice restaurant and just talk. It is well known, here in Missouri, that the man did love to eat and talk!
I dunno if I'd exactly be forthright about my sex life unless it somehow came up in conversation with any of my favorite authors. I really doubt I'd be pulling out the stash, but I might slip any of them a coupon if they are interested!
I asked Arch which author he'd love to have over for dinner and he said he would love to "entertain" William Shakespeare...and then poison him in some very theatrical way. He has nightmares about being forced to read Romeo and Juliette twice in High School. I did explain that it was the teachers that made that play so boring, but he is of the opinion that if the man hadn't written it then the point would be moot. So he'd still poison him but he'd invite the teacher who was a theater in the round enthusiast over to watch her "Great Man" die horribly. I told him that I figure it would suit Mr. Shakespeare just fine to be "offed" in such a cruel and twisted way...but there'd have to be some oddly turned phrases and comic relief in there somewhere!
