March Question Meme: Day Three  
Asked by ellipsisms:

If you could have dinner with 3 people living or dead, who would they be and why?

Anne Boleyn, because I would just love to sit down with her and just talk about her life and even understand the events of what happened. I mean, there's a lot of historical people I would love to sit down and have dinner with, but Anne Boleyn immediately sprang into my mind as the number one person I would request first in this scenario. I would want to know more about her personal experiences that aren't based on what historians think happened. Even if the details aren't exactly pleasant, it would be utterly fascinating learning more about who she was as a person, her likes and dislikes, the smaller things that have gone unnoticed from others.

Second person would be Robin Williams. I adored him and his work and, even though his death affected me so much, just having the chance to sit down with him would be an honor in and of itself. Not to mention he would be a fantastic dinner guest, with funny stories and making everyone laugh and just having a grand old time. I feel like his warm and welcoming presence would make the entire evening so much better.

And last but certainly not least, Jewel Staite. I really love her acting work, but I do genuinely like her as a human being. Based from what I've seen from various conventions she's attended over the years, she is someone who I would just love to sit down and have dinner with and just converse about, well, anything really. She is admittedly an open book and I would love to have the opportunity to just sit down with her in a non-convention setting and talk about anything that's on our minds, whether it's about her work or current events or just random nonsense. She's also a huge foodie, so anything that is served she will no doubt love or have comments on, and that would be an interesting dinner for sure regardless.

And if all three were together during this hypothetical dinner, just imagine the amount of fascinating discussion and entertainment that would ensue.

Oh, man, Robin Williams. Good choice.

Thank you. He is legitimately someone who I would have loved to just have met, or seen at some improv performance. He seemed like such a lovely, kind-hearted human being and it does still make my heart ache knowing that he's no longer with us.

Such good choices. I'd love to have dinner w/ Anne Boleyn too.

Who I would want to dine with
When I first saw this I immediately thought of Harriet Tubman. She is one of my heroes. Just because of what she did, she would have grand stories to tell. Such a great woman. The second person would be Joe Gatto. I'm completely serious when I say his laugh alone can make you smile. He is also a gentlemen, and is quite sweet. He would be delectable to dine with. The third person would be Sal Vulcano. He's just so friendly. He'll pull a crazy line on you, and not to tick you off, he'll make you smile. He could make everyone laugh with all of his stories to tell. I'm sure he would have a lot of them, considering he was a bartender for 10 years before going on "Impractical Jokers".

Yes, those are such good choices!!!
we can't give up. that's the deal.: rskar // peaceomgpeyton on March 4th, 2016 12:15 am (UTC)
This would be such an interesting dinner, especially with the addition of Robin. Sometimes I forget he's gone until I spot a movie of his. :(

I'm the same way. And even though I still enjoy his work, there is that heavy ache in my heart. :(

Thank you. :)

Anne Boleyn would be such an interesting choice - it'd be fascinating to see what she was really like, because so much history just seems to write her off as a bitch, a witch, an awful person, manipulative, calculating, cold-hearted, selfish - so what was she really like?

I'd love to meet Richard III, for much the same reasons. When history particularly vilifies certain individuals, you want to cut through the slander and propaganda and find out what the real person underneath was like!
Renée: Elementary. Joan Watson.rogueslayer452 on March 5th, 2016 03:28 am (UTC)
Yeah, that's one of the biggest things, for any woman in history really, because more often than not they're either slandered through propaganda , forgotten, or just plain ignored entirely for the vital things they contributed to during their time. Anne Boleyn was a fascinating historical figure where there was much controversy, so having the opportunity to just sit down with her and getting to know her on a human level would be such a honor and privilege.

Oh, who would that person be, if you don't mind me asking?

robin williams <3 one of the few celeb deaths that actually got me crying.
Renée: Kahlan. Elegance.rogueslayer452 on March 5th, 2016 04:54 am (UTC)
Same. I was left with a stunned numb feeling after hearing the news of David Bowie and Alan Rickman (especially since their deaths happened days apart from each other), and I was also rather numb and in a state of denial about Robin, but it also gutted me so much. :( I would have loved to have met them all, really, getting a chance to sit down and just have a conversation with them would've been so lovely.
telly telly bo bellylusimeles on March 6th, 2016 01:37 am (UTC)
ah, yeah. i wasn't super emotionally affected by bowie bc i always listened to the music rather than watched the man, but robin williams was just such a big part of my childhood. i was somewhat affected by alan rickman, too, esp. bc that was also such a surprise, and bc everyone always has such lovely things to say about him.

I would love to hear Anne's story, too!

That would be quite the awesome dinner party, having these guests attend. Great picks, I have to say!

I love this question because no matter what group you put together, it would be the most interesting dinner ever. But that would be a pretty awesome group! And I think everyone would get along well and have a good time at this dinner. :3
Renée: Kaylee. Giddy.rogueslayer452 on March 6th, 2016 10:05 am (UTC)
Exactly, like I could name three random people I admire and no matter what it would be entertaining. :)

Ooohhh, I love your choices!
