    Lunch with a celebrity

    Advertisements
    If you could have lunch with any celebrity, dead or living, who would it be and why?

    I would pick Fred Rogers, he was the reason I became a firefighter. I have also tried to adopt his parenting philosophy, but he was a saint and I'm a flawed human being.
    I want to get a tattoo that says "just the way you are."
    When I'm independently wealthy and can spend money on tattoos like I did before kids :/

    I just found out there is a Mister Rogers documentary coming out in March, so I'm pretty stoked.

    I would love an hour to just pick his brain.

    Who is your celebrity lunch date?

    Do I really need to say? Lol, honestly I'd love to talk to Tom Hiddleston about Shakespeare! I've always been a fan of Shakespeare.

    DH: Thank you. ME: For what, babe? DH: For being you.

    The McElroy brothers, anyone from NPR, or Amy Poehler.

    You donít sound like someone who wants Mads. You sound like someone who wants Hannibal, which...yes, okay, Iíll admit I can see the appeal too, but donít expect it to end very well. A beautiful monster is still a monster.

    Iím so happy someone else seems to have liked the show.


    To answer OPís question, I assume language isnít going to be a problem? Because I think I want Leonardo da Vinci. I think I could make him cry with joy. All Iíd have to do is feed him and then present him with tickets to an afternoon either hang gliding or with one of those wingsuits.

    I wouldnít even have to go. It would be worth it just for the moment of explaining to a man who dreamed of flying, someone who spent literal years on end obsessed with flight...that itís possible. If he wants so badly to fly, he can.

    Freddie Mercury, hands down. He's my hero. Man, if I could actually hear him sing live, in person... it would be life changing.

    Bahaha. There are so many puns to be made but I'll resist!
    Yeah, definite Fannibal here. It broke my heart when they decided to cancel the show.

    I think I have something you need to see. You may not be able to have Freddie (and oh my God, I sympathise there) but sometimes you can come close.

    Meet Marc Martel. His own natural voice is beautiful, of course, but what he's really good at is mimicking other great vocalists. People like...oh, I don't know, Luciano Pavarotti. Or Freddie. Preferably at the same time



    I'll give you a cookie if you can pinpoint the exact second my jaw dropped listening to this. It's mesmerising.

    No, don't resist! Where is the fun in that?

    It was such a good show. And (a pet peeve for me in a lot of other shows, professionally speaking) they got the food right. It's beautifully creepy-appealing, and Mads as Hannibal actually looks like he knows what he's doing. He wines and dines everyone he interacts with in the most amazing way. I can't think of very many other shows that do food with that much flair, that much beauty or that much love, and it's always, always associated with Mads-Lecter. His kitchen may be full of dead people, but it's also practically dripping with a very lush, INCREDIBLY sensual awareness of what cooking can be. It would genuinely fascinate me to watch him in full, not just the brief cuts and montages we actually get.
