In the colour magazine that comes with the Saturday "Courier Mail" is a questionaire given to somebody of note. Well, I'm not of "note", only within my own household, but I thought I would do similar here in my blog. As you know, this evening I'm hosting a dinner party. It will be a table of five. Over the years, I've often dreamed up guests with whom I liked to share my table. Part of the questionaire in the magazine is the question of whom one would like to share a dining experience with. So, here goes. I will try to be as honest as possible! UPDATE: It now appears my "table of five" will be increased to a table of seven! Not my doing, but I kinda got cornered and couldn't say "No"! It's just as well I always cater enough to feed an army! AND....I'll still be the "odd-man" out...well, odd-woman out. I sure would make an odd man (even that doesn't sound too great!)
If there were ten people, living or dead, I would invite to dinner, they would be:
Ayn Rand, David Bowie, a Long, Tall Texan, Jamie Oliver, Billy Connolly, Orson Welles, Anais Nin, Gregory Peck, Salvador Dali, Maria Callas....Abraham Lincoln.....I'll set an extra place!
A book that means a lot to me: Atlas Shrugged
A movie that resonates with me: The Horse Whisperer
A song that speaks to me: A Bridge Over Troubled Waters
Someone who makes me laugh: Me!
My worst fashion moment: I guess when I went to the service station on Wednesday!
The best thing about living: Being alive
My worst habit is: Impatience
The weirdest place I've been recognised is: Way out in a pub I was temporarily managing in Normanton, in far north-west Queensland in the Gulf Country
The last time I cried was: Watching "The Horse Whisperer" again, on DVD, last Sunday afternoon. Oh! I welled up with tears when I was chatting with a friend yesterday, too, but didn't actually "cry".
My first job was: As a legal secretary in Gympie
If my house caught fire, the first thing I'd grab would be: Three things, actually...my two cats and my computer
Five years from now, I will be: Still happily writing this blog, I hope!
My favourite toy as a child was: My dolls...all of them
My secret skill is: Sorry...I don't know if I have a secret skill...this one needs more thought...perhaps I don't have one! And if I told you what it was if I did have one, it would no longer be a secret!
You wouldn't know it but I'm no good at: What a silly question!
My biggest regret is: I leave regrets behind...I've had a few but I try to move on from them
I wish I had: Lots of things...but I don't dwell on them...or at least, I try my utmost not to do so. I try to face reality. On the material side of things, I wish I had a new car and well-equipped, well-laid out kitchen with a large walk-in pantry!
I wish I hadn't: Stayed up so late last night!
