Dinner for 12

Zeitgeisters,

It’s time to take a stand and create a list of a dozen people, living or dead that I would invite to a dinner party. Looking down this guest list, I see that I have a definite bias towards artistic, English speakers. What a shock!

Here goes:


KIM NOVAK – American actress, born 1933, best-known for her role in Hitchcock’s Vertigo.


SOUPY SALES – American comedian and actor, born 1926.


CLARICE CLIFF – English ceramic artist born 1899, died 1972.


VIVIENNE WESTWOOD – English fashion designer, known for her influence on punk. Born 1941.


THEODORE CHIPMUNK – (pictured Right)An Animated American chipmunk. Not Alvin, nor Simon. Born 1958.


ED DEVEREAUX – Australian actor, best known for portraying Ranger Hammond in the Skippy tv series. Born 1925, died 2003.


BARRY BOSTWICK – American actor, singer, agony aunt, polymath, Renaissance man. Born 1945.


ELEANOR ROOSEVELT – author, civil rights campaigner, former First Lady of the United States. Born 1884, died 1962.


GRACE COSSINGTON SMITH – Australian Artist, born 1892, died 1984.


RICK ASTLEY – English singer and musician. Born 1966.


KERRI POTTHARST – Australian professional beach volleyballer, Olympic Gold Medallist, motivational speaker. Born 1965.


MIKHAIL GORBACHEV – Last General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, Nobel Peace Prize winner. Born 1931.

Elevate the Insignificant,

  1. I think I’d have to invite 12 clones of myself. Firstly, there’s great entertainment value in WWE-style skribe-on-skribe smackdown. Secondly, it would be cheap: KFC dinner party.
