Five People I Would like to Meet for Coffee

3 years ago

Earlier this week, my best friend, M, sent me this link to Peter Englert's post, "5 People I Would like to Meet for Coffee,"  Right away, M, asked me who my 5 people would be.  The only rules M gave me were the same as Mr. Englert's, the people had to be living, and you could not pick someone you've met before.Here are my five: 1. Ross Mathews He's best known as "Ross the Intern" on the 'Tonight Show with Jay Leno.'  Ross is now the host of "Hello Ross!" on the E! Network, a comedian, and an author.  He's openly gay, energetic and just seems like one of the most amazing people in the world.  He just seems like someone I could easily become BFF's with in about 2 minutes flat!2. Mariska Hargitay With myself being a huge fan of Law and Order: SVU, Mariska Hargitay is someone I would love to sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee with.  I've seen many television interviews of hers, and she seems like such a lovely person.  I'm sure she has a plethora of stories to tell from the decade plus of seasons the show has ben running!3. Jaycee Lee Dugard Jaycee Lee Dugard was only 11 years old at the time of her kidnapping in 1991.  While being held captive, she gave birth to two daughters, her first at the age of only 13 years old.  The man that kidnapped her fathered both of her children, while holding her (and both children) captive for 18 years. Jaycee has authored a book about her captivity, A Stolen Life, which an amazing read.  I would love to sit with her and discuss the JAYC Foundation, a foundation she began to help families dealing with abduction and other tragedies.  What an amazing woman!4. George Clooney If you're thinking George is my celebrity crush, well my friends, you are wrong!  I chose George Clooney because of a medical condition he has, but chooses never to discuss.  It has been reported that he has Chiari 1 Malformation, the same medical condition I have.  He has never had treatment for this, instead, he just lives with him.  I figure this would be an interesting topic of discussion.5. Ellen DeGeneres As a talk show host, actress, author, model, and comedian, Ellen Degeneres was the celebrity who broke down the barriers of sexuality when she publicly came out of the closet in Hollywood.  She's very kind hearted and seems to be just a 'normal' person in Hollywood.  She's got a huge heart and loves to help people.  Her and I could devise a plan over coffee to conquer the world, I'm sure!

So there are my five.  Of course, in no particular order!  Who would you have a cup of coffee with?  What would you like to discuss?
