Well, who hasn't had the fantasy of meeting a fictional figure or icon of pop culture? However, since reality dictates our lives, most of these meetings will never occur (in all likelihood). Plus, let's face it... even if these fictional figures were real, why the hell would they hang out with me in my small town in Maine? This list is my way of acknowledging those people, who don't actually exist, that I'd love to meet and or hang out with.
Certainly not someone I'd invite over to dinner, but something tells me he's got a lively side (or as lively as vampires can get). Plus, I'd love to know how he makes his fingernails grow on command and does that spooky thing with his shadow. ):-=
Okay, so I'd only get to meet him if I was a criminal and he was busting my ass, but at least I could say that I got served by THE Batman. Plus, maybe I'd get to ride shotgun in the Batmobile before I land in jail. ; )
Well, since I've been little, I've always been a huge fan of "The Muppets" and "Sesame Street". I'd love to sit down and interview Kermit (much like Barbara Walters would). I'd ask him if it's still "not Easy Being Green" even during the current "Go Green" trend.
We'd sit down and talk about the glory days (Seasons 1-3) and why the show went downhill after that. Then we'd chat about all the beautiful women he's encountered over the years of adventuring. And maybe, if I was brave enough, I'd ask him how someone so docile could be the strongest man in the world.
Wow, this would be fun. First of all, I'd ask her if her leather and bronze outfit is uncomfortable, then I'd ask her what it was like being a feminist warrior in a man's world. Then she'd kick my ass when I asked her what the real relationship was between her and Gabrielle.
So, we'd sit down by a scenic lake and discuss her being the coolest sidekick ever, then she'd smack me with her scrolls. Then we'd discuss what it was like being an Amazon princess and did her ancient push-up bra hurt, and then she'd hit me with her staff. Then I'd ask her what happened to her career after Xena, and then she'd kill me with her sai.
So, I'm imagining a visitation to West Wallaby Street, where Wallace & Gromit live. I can picture a feast of cheese and crackers with tea, after which I check out all of Wallace's zany inventions and Gromit mutely points out how they were all tested on him.
She'd dazzle me with her medical knowledge, her witty sarcasm, and her good looks. Then I'd die and they'd play some catchy alternative pop tune while other doctors fell in and out of love... just like every episode.
I'd get her to tell me what it was like juggling peer conflicts, academic worries, and slaying vampires and other demons. Then she'd make a few jokes about ordering "stake" for dinner before telling me I need to get a life when I don't laugh.
First, I'd ask her what it's like being TV's most powerful witch. Then I'd be tempted to ask what sex with a werewolf is like. Then I'd get flayed alive for asking. Then she'd bring me back from the dead to apologize.
