VIPs I'd like to have on my guest list ...

  • Jan 17, 2010
Just dreaming :-)

'We are such stuff as dreams are made on; and our little life is rounded with a sleep.'  
~ Shakespeare.

Artist's interpretation of what Jesus looked like
I've lots of questions to ask Christ. Most of the time, I guess the answers I heard were not what I expected or they came long after I had even forgotten those questions! Do you ever wonder what it'll be like if you meet Jesus Christ in person? What will you say? What will you ask? Forgiveness, mercy, grace? or what? I wonder...
2
Walt Disney
He is one who had made many people, especially children all around the world happy. I like to be around happy people. He'll make a fine guest!
See the full review, "The Man with Dreams".

Princess Diana
She's a fairy tale came true but with a twist, a sad ending. I knew I liked her, she was afterall really beautiful, but I didn't know how much I liked her until the day I read about her death on CNN.com. I still don't know why, but I did cry that day. It was like a fairy tale come true for everyone when she married Prince Charles but even with the divorce, I hate to see sad ending. With the death, there was to be no reconciliation and I feel terrible for her young children and also for someone so beautiful to have her life ended so unexpectedly and without due recourse. Such a waste of life! Other than her 2 children, her legacy to the world is the reality of a fairy princess. For a short while, life was rosy for all!
4
Prince William
He's the cutest child and most adorable prince I've ever set eyes on. I think he'll make a good King one fine day. Princess Diana's legacy to the Brits and the world! There had been talks that he'd be the last king of UK. Not sure how true that is (same as with the Mayan calendar of 2012)!
5
Barack Obama
It'll be most interesting to hear conversations between the President & Christ & the other two former presidents. I wonder what the President intend to do in the next 3 years of his term! Time has surely slipped by... a year since he has been sworn in!
6
Oprah Winfrey
Oprah has an uncanny ability to speak her mind and talk about anything under the sun. She'll be a great moderator should there be a fight between all these people, haha! It'll be definitely a most interesting gathering of the greatest minds!
7
Bill J. Clinton
He's charismatic, he's charming and he's popular. He will certainly make the party an interesting one!
8
Deng Xiaoping
He's the reveled leader of the Chinese people. I don't know much about him but I certainly know his vision has made China what it is today. So, bravo to Deng Xiaoping for seeing the light! He's not a big man (in term of size) but he certainly thought big!
9
Steven Spielberg
I think a person with a creative sense of the mind as well as the eye is a truly interesting person. Yes, I'd love to have the company of Steven Spielberg. I wonder what he has up his sleeve other than Hereafter & When Worlds Collide.
10
Jet Li
He is a man of personal depth and enlightenment. It'd be cool to have Jet Li on the guest list! Way cool!!!
See the full review, "天生我才必有用 aka Jet Li, you light up my life!".

What did you think of this list?

Great list, Disney...eh...he had some major issues and was quite anti-Semitic. The others would definitely be interesting to have dinner with though!

Hmm interesting but I'm not so sure you would like Disney, a noted racist, ruthless buisnessman and he certainly did not make all these cartoons and comics that were published in his name. But still he obviously managed to get greatness from the people who worked for him, I'll give him that.

Great list! But just having the people that are historical would be enough. As for your #1, if he answered all your questions than it would defeat the purpose of having "faith."
January 19, 2010
Ha! HE won't have enough time to answer all my questions. I've too many of them and it's just guests for the evening, not an entire lifetime ;-)
January 19, 2010
Plus I suspect it's all about accepting the answers as being the best for us that's actually "faith" and not a matter of having no answer :-) I bargain quite a bit, even with the Lord ;-)

Interesting list, but let me point-out these two things regarding Princess Diana and her son Prince William: Firstly, I was very disappointed that Lady Diana made no provisions for charity in her will. It is ironic that this lady who asked others to give to the poor refused to do the same from her own pocket. Instead she left her entire fortunes to her two sons who are already multi-millionaires from birth. All the British media were too afraid to even mention this fact. Secondly, I do not believe in monarchy. Sorry, if you do. But I hate this whole idea of someone amassing wealth and influence without having to earn it, or even working for it. They receive millions of dollars worth of subsidies from tax-payers' coffers. Sycophants just tell us that they were born royal. Well, I'm not impressed. It defeats this whole idea of equality and equal opportunity between men. Every other person in your list earned his or her place, except the aristocratic Prince and Princess.

I understand your point of view. Very American indeed :-) I do believe however that life is not based on merit or if there is in fact equality or fairness in this world. There is not. We see parents treating children differently based on whatever or however the relationship is conducted. I come to see the world not based on merits but on how one affect his/her environment. May not be earning it in the way you see it, rather, by the fact of his/her position in life, he/she does what he/she can.
January 19, 2010
We are not born equal, we will never be equal. It is an ideal the American society seems to fight for, but it is not something the Asian societies have problems dealing with.

nice list...but you mean to say I'm not a V.I.P.? (kidding) this is a great idea.
January 19, 2010
I'm sure you are on Lunch, hehe... but I'm not serving lunch! ;-)
 
January 19, 2010
Very interesting list, great idea!
January 19, 2010
Thanks!

What a neat mix of people, Sharrie!  I feel like Ghandi and Martin Luther King Jr should be on this list, for some reason.  Would fit the theme!  Can I at least be a fly on the wall during this dinner party? ;P
January 19, 2010
I think not (about G& M; next, others will say Mother Teresa & plenty of others too. Too many VIPs, I won't be able to cope!) ;p but you can help me serve the desserts, if you like, LOL...
January 19, 2010
That just means that you'll need a good mix of regular people, like say, me, there, too.  to even things out :P And dessert? Even better! ;P
