Default Full Day At Sea Open Seating Lunch Partners

it's a beautiful nice lazy sea day and you and your significant other decide to have lunch in the main dining room with open seating

the waiter leads you to your table of four...what two other famous (living)people would you like to have an extended 3 hour lunch conversation with and what one topic would you like to discuss with them

my choice Colin Powell and Condi Rice...my topic..the legacy of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas

I would love to have lunch with Bruce Springsteen, Janet Evanovich and my brothers and sisters and commiserate about our New Jersey experiences.

Alas, mine will never happen but I would love to sit with Ronald Regan and Margaret Thatcher.......and my topic would be the end of the Cold War and economics.

Mine would be with General Chuck Yeager, and Lt Colonel Ollie North. We'd talk about anything the two of them wanted to talk about.

Bono and Nelson Mandella - kind of obvious topic, how to really change conditions in Africa. For a being "just a rock star", Bono is a surprisingly good speaker.

I'd love to have him along also Venice. As a matter of fact, I'm sure I'd enjoy just having lunch with him!
General Yeager has always been a man that I have a tremendous amount of admiration for, and Colonel North is one of a half dozen Marines that I'd like to buy a drink for, and sit down and talk to for an extended period of time.

Default lunch partners

I WOULD LIKE TO SPEND A 3 HR LUNCH WITH A MAN WHO WOULD LOVE TO SPEND TIME WITH ME. IT GETS VERY LONELY NOT BEING ABLE TO FIND SOMEONE WHO WANTS TO BE WITH YOU. I HAVE FRIENDS THAT ARE SINGLE AND HAVE ISSUES AND CAN FIND SOMEBODY, I WORK 2 JOBS, AND WOULD LOVE SOME MALE COMPAINSHIP. SO IF I CAN'T FIND SOMEONE THEN I CHOOSE TO SPEND 3 HRS WITH ONE OF THE SOAP STARS THAT ARE GOING ON THE SOAP CRUISE.
