UKSwap Question #2

02.02am. I can't sleep again. This is annoying. I have stuff to do tomorrow dammit!! I want to go to the bank and the post office. I want to go swimming. I want to cut out the pieces of my skirt and buy a zip. I want to do some more packing. I want to finally get the cuff of this jumper sorted out. I want to list some of my junk on ebay and freecycle. But I know I will do NONE of this bcause it is now 02.05, I can't sleep and that means I won't wake up until noon and won't have any energy for the rest of the day. At what point does it become acceptable to bash one's head against the wall in an attempt to knock self unconscious for a few good hours?


Which three guests (alive or not) would you invite to a dinner party and why?

I've been thinking about this one for a few days. I could invite people I think are funny (Simon Pegg, Bill Bailey, Eddie Izzard), or inspiring (Julie Taymor, Odile Dicks-Mireaux, Guillermo del Toro), or drop-dead gorgeous (James McAvoy, Casey Affleck, Ewan McGregor) or just a bundle of knitterly-wonderfulness (Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, Norah Gaughan, Franklin Habit), but then, I'm a pretty shy person at the best of times, I'd probably get starstruck, and I'd either spend the evening mumbling into my soup (don't really like soup, but it's kind of a requirement at a dinner party right?), or I'd get drunk and make an arse of myself. A very loud irritating arse no doubt.

I think I'm better off sticking to people I know who I haven't seen for ages.
1. Julia, my best friend from childhood who I've known since birth (hers, not mine, I'm 3 months older) and stuck to like glue all through primary school til I moved away and eventually lost contact.
2. NikkiandLaura. Best friends in middle school. I'm counting these two as one person, because we practically were for 2 years.
3. Kat, who did costume with me last year before dropping out and starting again in Interior Design somewhere else. Haven't lost contact thankfully, we just seem to be spectacularly bad at organising times to meet up.

I could feasibly have this dinner party, if I wasn't spectacularly bad at organising.
