Dinner party

"The idea is to work your way through the eight phases of the dinner party, answering all of the questions on the way - being as honest and creative as you wish. Once your homework has been completed, please nominate any number of bloggers to host their very own "virtual" dinner party."

Thank you Zhu for this great meme ^^ It's going to be fun trying to have a great party, so I'll try my best and hopefully everyone will have a great time :)

1) The Dinner Party Theme
You have decided to hold a dinner party. When writing the invites you clearly state that fancy dress must be worn. Assuming that cost is no issue, who or what would you dress up as, and why?

I would dress confortable, with soft clothes and socks, without shoes, so everyone should come in their pijamas! If you sleep naked or half-naked, please bring some other clothes xD

We would have our party in a log cabin by the lake, with the sunset in the horizon, seating in the deck ;)

2) The Invitations
This dinner party is for 6 people (including yourself), you are allowed to invite any 5 other people (either past, present, real or fictional), who would you invite and why?

Ummm, this one is hard, since I would like to invite EVERYONE I know, it would be much more fun xD

Well, I'll invite everyone plus:
  • Stephen King: I love his books!! I really want to pick his brain and talk for days!
  • Tolkien: Oh my God... Can you imagine Stephen King and Tolkien talking?
  • The Beatles: They count as one, don't they? ^^ I love their music!! I couldn't believe having one of them in my party, let alone the 4 of them :D
  • Robin Williams: We already have writers and musicians, so we need a great actor and comedian!
  • Anne Rice: I know, I know, another writer, but I can't help it!!! Books are the best, and we need a woman!

3) The Starter
You are preparing the menu, which dish(es) would you choose as the starter, and why?

This one it's too difficult for me... not only I don't cook, but I don't know the names in english either xD

So, lets try...
I would serve Bruschettas, cheese and bread (yes, we have cheese as a started and not at the end ^^)...ummm...soup... chupe if I don't have to cook it xD

4) The Main Course
Okay, now for the main course? and what drink would you serve with it?

Oh my God, I suck at this...
  • We'll have spinach, tuna and cheese au gratin with white rice.
  • And Chalupa!, Does this have a name in english? I could only find de recipe in spanish, sorry!
You can bring anything else if you want ^^ These are venezuelans, to show a few of our specialties :D

5) The Sweet
Finally, the sweet. Which would you choose, and why?

Chocolate! Chocolate! and Chocolate!
Cocoa, chocolate cake, chocolate mousse ^^
We could also have cheese cake and apple pie :D

6) The Entertainment
The dinner party has gone swimmingly, everybody has had fun, conversation and drinks have been flowing all evening. At the end of the meal you announce that everybody should perform their ‘party piece’ (no matter how strange or pointless). What party piece would you perform?

Can we play UNO? That would be so much fun! Of course we have writers, musicians and a comedian, please do your thing! :D

7) The End Of The Evening:
The party is over, everybody has gone home, the house suddenly feels empty and quiet. Your eyes fix on the hi-fi in the corner of the room. You search through your CD collection to put on some music as you want to listen to one more track before your retire to bed. Which track would you play?

Oldies! Everything and anything from the 70's, I love that music :D

8) The Dinner Party Nightmares
Okay, so the "virtual" dinner party is over. Now for the real thing. Have you ever been to or hosted a dinner party during which something has gone wrong (either with the food, a guest or something else)?

Ummm... Can I say my wedding? The music arrived 3 hours late! The photographer took us far away from the reception and took our pictures until the music arrived, can you believe that? Of course I didn't pay them -_-

Now, the victims :D

I would like to tag:
  • Tina, I would love to see one of your parties
  • Erin, I think you would have a cool party :)
  • John, another teaching soul ^^
