Dinner for Three

If I were to have three famous dinner guests, I think these three would be my choices...

Amelia Earhart: Since grade school, I have  been enamored with her. The mystery of her death/disappearance has always heightened my curiosity, but I also admire the way she lived her life up to that point. She seemed like someone who was so sure of herself, and I think she would be an awesome dinner guest!

Stephen Colbert: He just makes me laugh so much. I would love to see what he's like outside of the character he plays on The Colbert Report. I think we could be friends in real life, so I'd invite him to my famous people dinner, definitely!

Teddy Roosevelt: I caught the first two episodes of The Roosevelts: An Intimate History on PBS (There are seven episodes and I want to watch the rest!), which mostly focused on Theodore's life. He was kind of a crazy person! But also very driven and seemed like he might be fun to be around/have for a dinner guest.

If you could choose three famous people to invite to dinner, who would they be?

  1. My three would be Leonardo Da Vinci, Sir Isaac Newton, and Benjamin Franklin. Those are three dudes who were good at everything, and I would love to just sit back and listen to their conversations (and inevitable arguments!).

    As an aside, one of my undergrad professors was (and is) a member of the Amelia Earhart Society, and periodically goes searching for her bones. When I was at school, he went on sabbatical and took a trip to Fiji to search!
