“What a mixed bunch!”

Well I have to say looking upon this group I would love to see them all at a table. They aren’t all that famous but these people who have interested me and in some cases inspired me. This is a really hard one I have changed some of my choices two and three times but this is the final draft and I...

Most of them are neither

Oohhh a challenge. Or competition, as Donna called it. Let’s call it a challenging competition, as a compromise. This is my first challenging competition, and I don’t expect to do too many. Having said that, they can be quite funny from what I’ve seen, and, what the heck, you...

“What a swell party this is”

published 06/03/2003

Congenial company

They might not think so

Reviewing The Beggar’s Opera recently put me in mind of this piece. I appreciate that some of the names may have ceased to be ‘famous’ in the sense of being popularly recognised, but they were all justly famous in their day, and any small contribution I can make towards fanning the embers of that...

Some superb insight

Not many people would agree

The ten most famous people I would like to meet. Amazing how different people inspire us with their accomplishments and how they personally affect us. What affect they have on our lives and how some of us follow their example. As an example at a young age, children watch famous footballers and...

I have met quite a few famous people from the world of Science Fiction. However, these people aren't really famous in the Hello/ OK definition of famous. Saying that, there might still be a few names on the list below that you haven't heard of. I warn you though that the following group of names...

“Everyone has their heroes”

published 11/01/2003

Would gain insights into great peoples lives

some are dead

These following people are my heroes and I would love to meet any one of them. I don’t think I would have any specific questions to ask them. Just about themselves and their life and work. Contained herein are 4 scientists, 2 writers, a martial artist, a religious leader and a crocodile...

Meeting the people I would like

They may not be how I perceive them to be

There's simply loads of people I would like to meet, but as it is, only 10 can be listed. So, here are my top 10 people I would most like to meet. 1) Tony Blair Politics aside, it would be nice to see what he's like in real-life. What is he like as a father? What's his favourite food, or what is...

“If only......”

published 18/02/2004

I can dream

They might not want to meet me

The first problem with writing this was deciding how I defined famous. Depends of your point of view I suppose, however I decided to stick to those people who would be known through the media in some way, either from current exposure or articles about them .My top 10 is not in order of preference...

“Pleased to meet you”

published 07/01/2003

I'd get to meet loads of famous people

I might not like them as much as I think

I read sporty’s opinion on this subject and this fired my imagination to the point where I couldn’t wait another moment to regale you all with my choices in the matter. That, and I’ve been waiting about 2 months for two items to be added to the product list so feel the need to...

We often talk about this subject in the pub – in differing forms, such as “name 3 film stars you would like to go for a meal with and why”, or “3 rock stars to get drunk with”. Its actually quite hard – but good fun! So, here are the 10 famous people I would most like to meet. 1. J R R Tolkien...

All people who inspire me

What does it say about me?

I wasn't going to write anything on ciao because it had been ages since I last wrote anything then I was looking through, bored, and came across Jamie2004's spectacular opinion about the ten famous people he would most like to meet. Then I thought why not give it a go. However due to the depth I...

“Tea for ten.”

All plusses for me.....

I may be disappointed by the reality.

Okay, first things first.......I'm sorry I've neglected Ciao for a year but I have to admit to losing all inspiration and need to write but the bug has bit back so here I am again! A big hello again to anybody who remembers me and I hope you like my writing to those that don't. Anyway enough of...

“Nothing like a good gossip!!”

published 13/10/2003

lots of interesting conversations

probably all talking at once

BRUNEL - I think he would have a lot of very interesting things to talk about, having such an inovative mind. I would like to know where he got his inspiration from and how he managed to turn them from theory on paper into practice - and how many of his projects failed in the early stages of...

Tells a lot about me

See above!

There are so many people I would love to be able to meet / have met (forget the famous, I would give everything I own for just 30 seconds with my grandma again) and the following list is just a snapshot of my thoughts on this right here right now, it would probably change many times if you asked...

Not for me

I could get some answers

It would probably end up in a food fight.

11 people I would invite to a dinner party (10 would mean an uneven number). I could reel off a load of singers and actors/actresses that are around today, the likes of Bryan Adams, Mel Gibson etc but decided to go to the real guiding spirits of my life and give them a meal paid for by Ciao. I...
