I am stuck in hospital at the moment so I have been struggling to find something to blog about. Deprived of day to day blog fodder and feeling pretty low, I asked the hillarious Mother Venting (whose blog is marvellous do go check it out) to help me out. She suggested this, who would be at my dream dinner party ?
First of all I love eating. So my first thought was that my dream dinner party would be a solo affair. Images of waiters bringing me plate after plate of deliciously descendant dishes. Me scoffing said dishes with my face covered in the evidence !
However this is not a particularly social way to dine so I gave some consideration to some dinner companions. First up would have to be a Leprechaun. There isn’t a food in my opinion that doesn’t go well with marshmallows (I dare you to find one).As you know Leprechauns poop marshmallows over everything as they walk, so they would make a fantastic dinner companion.
Secondly, would be Kirsty Allsopp. I actually have a little girl crush on Kirsty Allsopp. She would arrive with a charming handcrafted gift, possibly a posey of flowers from her garden tied with her own hair. Then she would teach us all how to make our napkins into squirrels. Brilliant.
Thirdly, I would invite a camel. First up I think camels are the ultimate indignant animal. It would fill the place of the indignant dinner guest with a bee-in-their-bonnet (or in the camels case a hump on their back). It would politely chew, then at appropriate times when conversation gets heated,spit and really confirm its point. A camel really is the ideal dinner guest.
Fourthly, and finally I would invite The Incredible Hulk. First we would hang out with his alter ego, then if things get dull, what a party game! Whoever goads the Hulk till he turns green gets to open the after dinner mints. Also once in Hulk mode he eats up all the leftovers and plates, reducing the need for tidying up. Perfect.
So this is my dream dinner party. What do you reckon, who would you have at yours, hospital is pretty dull, keep me entertained with your comments.
lol 🙂 I know what you mean about Kirstie she is great. I asked for her crafting book for Christmas, will probably never do anything of it.. but I can feel all domestic goddess- like just pretending I might.
Well in my fantasy dinner party I would have to invite my little brother Jon who died 9 years ago. I would also invite Doc brown from back to the future with his time machine and we would work out a scheme to stop Jon having his accident. while we were at it we would buy up loads of prime real estate for a few quid and come back to be zillionaires. I would also invite mother Theresa for her carming influence and to just sit and talk to and lastly maybe the bodyshop woman Anita Roddick I reckon she would be worth listening to as well. might give me the kick up the backside I need 🙂 If I can have 5.. I would ask Nigella lawson to give us a slap up meal and to share her passion for food and life.
How long do you have left in Hospital? do you want us all to come with some knotted sheets or something?
Sounds like a good party. Yes knotted sheets and a cake with a file would be most welcome !!
p.s How do I make my name a link to my blog like the others have?
I’m not sure sorry.
Mahahahahahaha that is SO NOT what I was expecting! But totally brilliant. I am now hankering after a dinner party at which a leprechaun shits marshmallows everywhere and Kirstie Allsop knits quietly in the corner, next to an indignant camel. Not sure about The Incredible Hulk, though. Am worried he might smash the crockery.
You should start a meme! Get folk to link up with their dream dinner party guests. Although I doubt anyone will top yours 😉
Thanks. A meme would be brilliant, if my head was screwed on right now I may be able to make that possible. Perhaps when I’m better.
