I know. Totally random post. Nothing artsy, (well, don't you think the dinner conversation would be artsy and fabulous??) nothing about Brenna or a give away. Just a thought.
So. Who would you invite? Here's my list, in no apparent order:
Anne Lamott (Plan B-Thoughts on Faith)
Jodi Picoult (My Sister's Keeper)
Alice Hoffman (Blue Diary)
C.S. Lewis (Screwtape Letters)
Augustine Burroughs (Running With Scissors)
Rebecca Wells (The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood)
Lorna Landvik (Angry Houseswives Eating Bon Bons)
Brennan Manning (The Ragamuffin Gospel)
Oh, man. I'm getting excited just THINKING about it. What would I make? Mmmmm....maybe a great pasta dish? Nah, gets cold too fast. (For sure something that doesn't need a slotted spoon.) Mexican? Nope, I'm thinking pasta. Maybe a great veggie lasagna with a big salad and bread. Hmmm. No, too boring. Something warm, comforting, lots of color....I'll have to look at cookbooks. The menu is almost as important as the guest list. And definitely coffee and dessert. That's where the fun would get started.
Would they all get along? Would it be like putting together a regular dinner party, where you make sure someone knows at least one other person, or would they all connect because they share a fabulous art? Kinda like when we get together and do a swap. We all connect and have fun because of our shared love of whatever we are making.
Whew. That was fun. You just HAVE to comment on this one!!! Tell me who you would invite and what would you serve???
