I have Stephen Fry, Eddie Izzard and Chris Evans on my guest list. But I really want Gary Barlow to come too, so I've decided that Stephen has to go. AIBU? confused

valiumredhead Fri 01-Feb-13 13:21:36

Why can't he come as well?

Catchingmockingbirds Fri 01-Feb-13 13:23:05

You'd take Stephen fry off your list in place of Gary Barlow, yet you'll keep Chris Evans? I think we all know here, yabu!

manicbmc Fri 01-Feb-13 13:23:37

Which Chris Evans? The one who never shuts up and is a mediocre dj or Captain America?

valiumredhead Fri 01-Feb-13 13:23:39

Chris would be top of me list!

valiumredhead Fri 01-Feb-13 13:23:49

What is it, the ugly bug's ball?

<< Fears I may have said that out loud >>

sittinginthesun Fri 01-Feb-13 13:24:31

Stephen can come to mine instead.

valiumredhead Fri 01-Feb-13 13:26:28

worra shock

I would so do all of them did I say THAT outloud?

chicaguapa Fri 01-Feb-13 13:26:53

I've only got 4 chairs and one's for me. grin

Not Captain America, no.

I don't know if SF is getting a bit old for dinner chez moi. And I see so much of him on QI.

Surely you can have both. You really need 6 minimum at a Fantasy Dinner Party (you can get away with 4 guests in your Fantasy Hot Tub, but not dinner). In fcat, that means you can choose one more too!

I'm thinking of inviting Martin Freeman to join me, Ryan Gosling, Stephen Fry, Sue Perkins and Rhod Gilbert.

manicbmc Fri 01-Feb-13 13:28:13

Dump Evans instead.

If it was the other one, I'd say keep and don't invite Barlow. grin

chicaguapa Fri 01-Feb-13 13:28:24

I'm not going to shag any of them, we are going to have intellectual talks and high jinx. so why am I inviting Gary?

SolidSnake Fri 01-Feb-13 13:29:28

But you never know where dinner might lead chica grin

valiumredhead Fri 01-Feb-13 13:30:36

Intellectual talks, high jinx and THEN a ig shag fest while Gary plays the piano!

valiumredhead Fri 01-Feb-13 13:30:44

big

manicbmc Fri 01-Feb-13 13:32:18

Hence the need to drop British Evans in favour of American Evans.

valiumredhead Fri 01-Feb-13 13:34:17

Oh no, I love a sandy haired gentleman...

chicaguapa Fri 01-Feb-13 13:34:24

6 guests makes it too easy, I think. angry

manicbmc Fri 01-Feb-13 13:35:09

Not so much the hair, but the gob. grin

QuickLookBusy Fri 01-Feb-13 13:35:53

Yabvvvvu

I understand you wanting Mr Barlow (don't we all?), but Mr Evansconfused

How can any conversation with Mr Evans be in any way comparable to a convo with Mr Fry? You're mad.

Maryz Fri 01-Feb-13 13:37:51

But Gary Barlow is so boring.

Unless the producers would give him a list of suitable topics and so-called amusing comments like they do on X-factor? He hasn't much to say for himself.

Stephen Fry, on the other hand, could be interesting on any topic.

I'd dump Eddie Izzard and certainly Chris Evans. I might have John Bishop and Daire O'Briain, or maybe Graham Norton, or James Cordon (in fact I'd like the whole panel of A League of Their Own).

Maybe I'm a bit greedy, but you are welcome to Gary Barlow.

gordyslovesheep Fri 01-Feb-13 13:38:07

depends if you want interesting conversation or if you want to be so bored you eat your own arm while being regaled with hilarious tales of his friend Prince Charles and his work for charridy really !

PelvicFloorClenchReminder Fri 01-Feb-13 13:39:13

Get a beanbag and make Chris Evans sit on the floor.

Maryz, you are veering away from "dinner party" territory and heading for "ballroom buffet"!
