Gina Vivinetto’s Greatest Hits

You may invite 5 people to Thanksgiving

Who are they?

Alive or dead.


Preferably real people, not, like, Bert and Ernie (beside, Ernie would come to my house if given his druthers).

Let’s make this easy and say we are already allowed to bring our friends and family and loved ones.

I just want to know which famous people, or people in history, you would most like to share your holiday meal with you.

It’s interesting to wonder who out of the people we admire would make good dinner guests. I’ll forgo Woody Allen and Lester Bangs and Jean-Michel Basquiat because, frankly, I think they would make lousy guests. Andy Warhol? Nah.

My list:
1. Buddha


2. Richard Pryor


3. Yoko Ono

Yoko Ono Lennon

4. Brian Eno


5. John Cage


This will all change by next week. (Well, not, I suspect, Buddha and Richard).

Who’s on your list?

    allright I just have to do this again, Gary Snyder for some back country zen wisdom, Pete Seeger for a song, my Muse Marla Misenheimer because shes a hoot, Don Rickles for some levity, and Karen Walker for more booze.
