Well Kate, given that I seem to be sorely lacking in the inspiration department, this was a welcome idea for a post over here at Life In The Country.
So, moving right along, here is my list.
My Top 5 Dinner Party Guests
1. Meryl Streep
Love, love, love her. The woman can act. Seriously. She seems to have resisted the temptation to jump on the plastic surgery/cookie cutter beauty wagon. She is ageing with grace and style. I also think she doesn't take herself too seriously (or she would never have done "Mamma Mia"). Meryl - on the infinitesimal chance you are reading this - YOU ROCK!
2. Russell Crowe
He's a real man. I've seen Gladiator. He can act too. I am just not the sort of girl who likes pretty boy girly swots. So Russell, you're in.
3. Tim Winton
One of my all time favourite authors. He is Western Australian as well. He writes incredible novels and has the most amazing ability to evoke a sense of place. Like me he is in love with the sea. I think he might be on the shy side, but that's OK, I think the other guests would be pretty chatty.
4. Jilly Cooper
Another of my favourite authors (I have varied taste). I think she would be brilliant company, good fun and potentially hilarious.
5. The Farmer
Someone needs to open the bottles of wine and keep the glasses topped up. Besides, I quite like him...
