The Rules: Alive or Dead - Not fictional.

I would enjoy the company of Robbie Coltraine, Dame Judi Dench, The Big Yin, Les Dawson, Pete & Dud and Ayrton Senna.

The last one was a bit of self indulgence on my part.

Vortex what...ouch!

One assumes Germaine Greer would be there to do the catering and the washing up.

11th May 2004, 10:42
Nah, she's there to strike sparks off Sinatra and stop Pierce Brosnan wanting to pay attention to the lady on his other side!

A mixture of family and friends. :ok: What's the point in having people with whom you may not have anything in common, just because they are celebrities. :confused:
I would do my own cooking, that way I know what has gone into it, how it was prepared and that I will enjoy it. :ok:

11th May 2004, 11:07
My mates from my old indoor cricket team. The Tuesday golfers. Wifey.

WTF am I going to say to Ghandi or Jesus Christ or Mohammed? What a load of ****. :rolleyes:

I like meeting new people and it's hard to include on your invitation list people you haven't heard of!:p

11th May 2004, 11:14
A good eclectic mix of people - just having the right people there. I don't think you can forecast the results of the chemistry, it would just work or not, as the case may be.

I would want to be able to sit back after everyone had left and know that I and everyone else had enjoyed the food and company.

Load and loads of scantily clad ladies, with a knack for BJs and of extremely pleasing apperance. I'd rather not they were "celebrities", really. We'll call the six-pack of Stella and the handful of Viagra on the table dinner.

How shallow ...

Definition of a celebrity: Someone who's famous for being famous.

11th May 2004, 13:38
The entire personnel licensing section of the Irish Aviation Authority, who are doing their utmost to destoy recreational aviation over here.

The menu would consist of many old Borgia favourites, heavily spiced to conceal the odour of bitter almonds.

Soon to be Mrs p-k-b (One has to say that)
The Wright brothers (you got it so right - you Wrights are alright by me!)
Angelina Jolie (eye candy for p-k-b) :D
George Clooney (eye candy for soon to be Mrs p-k-b) :p
My boss (laugh a minute)
Clarkson (ditto)
Drapes! (ditto)
My dad's dad (he died when I was so young I never got to know him and he was a diamond, by all accounts)
...and his dad, too (same reason)

And just for some mischief, top kneddies of Boeing and Airbus (and sit them opposite each other!) :p
