Mine would be Madame Currie. I wanted to be just like her, but chemistry was not going to be my career!

James Joyce. I can't understand his books; would I be able to understand what he says?

There was a similar question in October last year, only the question was "Who would you like to meet for dinner". Here is my answer from there:

Viggo Mortensen
- I'd love to discuss his poetry... yeah, that's it... poetry

JRR Tolkien
- I have so many questions about LoTR and I would love to pick his brain to find out the answers

Adolph Hitler
- I hear he was a virtual genius! Yet he was also one of the most cruel people to have ever lived. I'd love to be able to talk to him and find out "why!"

Queen Elizabeth I
- She came to the throne so young and she was one of the most successful reigning monarchs. I think she would be facinating to talk to.

God
- To find out where he came from if he in fact "created" everything!

Billy Corgan or Aaron Lewis - lead singers of my two favorite bands, The Smashing Pumpkins and Staind. They are both lyrical and musical geniouses. Or Kurt Cobain. He died on my twelfth birthday... He was an amazing artist as well.

George Washington

Charles Darwin- His book The Origin of Species shook the foundations of science and religion when it was published. Something I didn't know about him was that he was given a state funeral when he died.

Julius Caesar

J.R.R. Tolkien

...and a host of others.

My first thought was Eve but it would have to be prior to 'the fall' so I could tell her, whatever the snake says, he's full of it! Save the rest of us women a load huh?

Alexander the Great. When I was a teenager and all the other girls were drooling over singers and actors, I was busy obsessing over him. I still have a fascination for him. I would love to hear about his victories and failures that we didn't hear about.

Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War and his wife just to try to figure out what made her tick and what her mental or emotional problems were.

On a lighter note, Mae West. I've always kind of been fascinated by women who were bawdy and real down to earth before it was okay to be like that.

Fyodor Dostoevsky

DW and I have both read every single piece of literature he ever done yet we argue over whether he was a Christian or not.

Thomas Jefferson. He's always fascinated me.

All sorts of musicians (The Beatles, lol)
Rembrandt van Rijn, the painter, because I love his work.
JRR Tolkien, because there are definitely questions I need to have answered.
Otzi, the Ice Man. He is a 5000+ year old mummy now, but everything was intact when they found him.


There are so many others I would have liked to have met ....

I would love to hear Mark Twain's take on the current political elections in the US.

Wow, good question!

Joan of Arc--she's been my hero since I was a teenager.
Mary Magdalene--I have so many questions
Vincent van Gogh--he's my idol; I believe he's the greatest painter that ever picked up a brush.
Edgar Allen Poe--he was a genius.
