Your Mission Should You Choose To Accept It ………

Get Well Smart & 99:

Crazy Train To Tinky Town

I have been tagged by the very lovely Jeri over at The Life and Times of JVS and the rules are:

At your perfect dinner party you can invite;
5 guests + yourself, relatives allowed but it’s more interesting if it’s a public figure.
Dead or Alive
Any language.
Fictional characters allowed!

Ideally my dinner party guests would include all of you and copious amounts of cocktails – what an evening that would be and you wouldn’t want to pay that bar bill either! However, as we are spread throughout the world I think it is highly unlikely, so here are my second choices:

Alan Carr – camp comedian who’s a little bit naughty with a wicked sense of humour, not unlike myself!

Adele – Not only does she write and sing kick-ass songs but she made a fortune out of the jerk that dumped her – think there may…

1. Regina Spektor

Born in Russia and transplanted to New York as a kid, Miss Spektor is a force of nature. There is no point in denying this. I’ve been hooked since she was just a VH1 Artist You Oughta Know; I played “Fidelity” and “Us” on loop in the ice cream shop I worked at in college; at 18, I listened to “Samson” in the car late at night, engrossed. How do you draw up a comparison to describe her? She’s virtuosic on the piano, her voice glides effortlessly from “sweet pixie” to “sonic equivalent of Ivan Drago” to “onomatopoeia,” and her lyrics contain breathtaking storytelling. In live shows, she often uses a wooden chair as…
