I like the idea of 10 being a nice number.
I am only going for real and living people.
1- Ken Dryden (Former Hockey Player, Author, Lawyer and Politician)
2- Bill Watterson (Calvin and Hobbes)
3- Sharron Stone
4- Jeremy Clarkson
5- Johnny Depp
6- Matt Goerning
7- Edward Norton
9- Annie Lennox
Mine would just be a mix of comedians and musicians/songwriters. People who I think would be good conversationalists and have interesting war stories to tell.
Paul F. Tompkins
Eh, I think I'll stop there. I could make a separate list of historical figures, criminologists, or what have you, but I think I'll go for a fun evening. I kinda wanted to slip Jane Goodall in there, but I don't think she'd blend. :-P
