#BEDM14 Day 25 – Come Dine With Me
I frigging hate CDWM. When it started it was just about tolerable but in recent years it’s just been a quick and ugly race to the bottom of the mentalist barrel. That said, I do like sitting around with people and eating food and drinking. I wouldn’t ever actually host anything, mainly because I’m only just capable of providing myself with basic nourishment, never mind providing several people with something pleasing to eat. I eat a lot, but I’m not a foody.
But assuming I somehow got invited to an All-Star non-CDWM dinner party, who would I want there? Well I’d want Stephen Fry there obviously, because who wouldn’t? And if you’ve got Fry you may as well have Laurie, so I’ll have Hugh too! Take a look at this video of the first time they appeared together on TV in 15 years!
I could just sit there in silence and listen to them chat to each other all night. Also Miriam Margolyes because she’s posh and filthy and hilarious and those are the three things that attract me most to a person:
Between the three of them there would be so much amazingness to listen to I would literally pay to be there. And finally of course I would need someone pretty to look at when Miriam is having a shit or Stephen and Hugh are arsing around at the piano. And filling that slot I believe would have to be Andrew Garfield who is not only cute and able to fill a spidey-suit exceptionally well, but is also geeky and seems cool.
I believe this would constitute a pleasant evening. As long as someone else sorted out the food.
