Early again this week as I will be taking Friday as a vacation day and will probably be sleeping all day!

This week's question is again from Cindy:

[glow=red,2,300]If you could meet and talk with one person, dead or alive, who would that person be and why?[/glow]

I would love to meet my Grandparents........my Nana and Grandpap on my mom's side, and my Grandfather and Grandmother on my Dad's side.  

My Grandmother on my Dad's side is still living, but hasn't been herself in quite some time.  

I lost all of my Grandparents before I was at an age where I could really appreciate them, in fact, I never got the meet my Grandpap.

I just know that they were full of all kinds of interesting life experiences and knowledge.  I think I could have learned more from them than any textbook in this whole world.

I also would be able to find out where my family came from.  They took that knowledge with them to the grave and my Grandmother that is living doesn't remember much.

I could also get all those recipes that my Nana never wrote down.  Man I would kill for a bowl of her beef noodle soup with home made German noodles.

I know that they watch over me now, I see them from time to time, usually when my life is totatlly crazy.  They show up, just to let me know that things will be okay.

I hope some day I DO get to meet them.  I have a lot of question for them!

I beleive I would choose Bruce Lee.
Mainly because I am fasinated with martial arts. I currently am taking martial arts Talking to the best martial artist known to man as he is beleived to be would be an honor. I have  hundreds of questions to ask.

as for people who are alive I think I would pick David Bane (Street magic)  only in this conversation he will tell me how he does all of his tricks an how he makes his levatation appear to be real.  that guy is by far the best magician in the world.

There are several people I would love to meet as far as celebrities go.  First off I would love to meet Elvis...I'd probably tell him that all those pills were going to cause him to die on the toilet. Why?  Because he's Elvis for cying out loud!!! Linda Lovelace...not because I like porn but because I want to look in her eyes and see if she really was forced into such acts or if her book was some cover to gain her lost stardom. Then there's always the legendary Jimi Hendrix...I wouldn't have him say nothing cause his voice always irritates me...but I would have him play a song just for me...I would also love to talk to Bob Marlo...cause I love the kicked back relaxed spiritual people...oh...and one biggy that's dead Jim Morrison.
Alive people...first on my list would be Tony Blair...I believe he's Prime Minister to England...I just want to find out why so many people hate him.
On a more personal level as far as the dead is concerned I would love to meet my great grandma Florence...my mother's grandmother...who was a hellion until she died.  Also my great grandma Jennie's biological parents cause I want to know if I'm of hispanic descent or if I'm 1/4 blooded Apache Indian (she was adopted and all birth records were lost).  A very important one is my boyfriends father Michael.  He died shortly after me and my SO started dating.  I never got to meet him.  I'd maybe talk to him awhile and then slap his face for being such a Pr*ck to his children.
You come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.

I would love to talk with Al Capone and find out what he did with all of the stuff that wasnt in his vault Geraldo tried to open, also I just love tha gangster stuff! I would also like to talk with Marilyn Monroe, and the Black Dahlia (she was killed an never identified). Oh and Tom Wollfolk of the Woolfolk Murders (the book is on the book reviews section) 8)

I saw something on the history channel the other day about the black dahlia...they have a name for her but they don't know if it's the right one....

It would be great if they could find her name as that was such a sad case!

I guess George Lucas ( Star Wars & American Grafitti ) would be my choice. I'd like to understand his ability to tie time frames in movies together so neatly and ask how he makes his characters so vibrant and unforgetable.
Tim Robbins would be another . I think he is the most under-rated actor of all time. He is magnificent all the way around.
Id also like to meet Harry Houdini and ask him about the after life. lol   ;D

I know you asked for 1 but I got carried away  ;)

Thanks Sue Smith and BK, I hope so I really do,  I sent a message for him with my friend who sees ghosts (from a few posts back) her fiancee was one of the pallbearers and a close friend of both of ours.

I would love to talk to my great great grandmother one more time. I lived with her until I was ten. She passes away and I would love to get to talk with her again.  Also I would love to talk to Elvis and Buddy Holly ( I am a big fan).
