If you could choose your tablemates..from anyone famous, living or dead to dine with you on a cruise..how about Frank Sinatra...Einstein?? You choose the peope you would love to chat with at dinner,and make your own A list.....Mine would be
1] Domenic Dunne
4] Mitzi Gaynor
there may be more once i think on it ...Since i am dreaming, my table can be as huge as i want it...Ok ... how about your table?
Great question.....and I have many, many thoughts.
First of all my ideal tablemates would be: Donna, Trip, Tweety, Anne, Kuki, etc.
Then another thought would be: Tim McGraw, Rosie O'Donnell, Rege & Kelly,
Walter Matthau and Mad Dog from Survivor. Wouldn't that be a riot?
Thanks for the question Trip.
Thursday Chat Host
After seeing "The Producers" on Broadway last weekend you would need to add Mel Brooks, Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick. They had the entire audience in stitches for 2 hours and 40 minutes. Now I can't wait to see it again.
During my "Inside the Beltway" years, political incorrectness reigned on "The Hill".
A favored staff pastime was to seat tables for eight for an imaginary State Dinner. The idea was to come up with eight people who would surely kill each other before the fish course was over. Or, at least, experience severe social discomfort.
The pairings were the essential component. For example, the Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan would be paired with Mahalia Jackson. Hitler with Golda Mier. And so on.
There were advanced versions that got funnier because one had to know a LOT of history, literature and current events to make the matches.
The only problem ocurred when one Senator or another would find a bunch of us rolling about in helpless laughter and inquire authoritatively, "What's so %@$@& funny?"
"Eleanor Roosevelt and Mowgli."
Picture one confused Senator rolling his eyes and muttering, "Your tax dollars at work."
Darn, but that was a long time ago. I guess I'd start this week with Pat Buchanan and Ru-Paul.
