Lisa Thornbury: Party Mummy


My Ultimate Dinner Party

Who's On Your Guest List?

January is gross. It's minus a million degrees, every outdoor surface is covered in a menacing layer of ice and I turned another year older this month. The only thing more depressing than January is dumb-ass February.

This is the the time of year when I reach out to friends for comfort and a laugh. However, due to slippery roads and even slicker schedules, I'm on my own for awhile. So until the thaw, I’m hosting an imaginary party in my head, with ten of my favourite funny peeps.

Yes, I'm planning imaginary parties now. Clearly the cabin fever has set in. 

My top ten list of Best Ever Party guests:

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler—You've fantasized about being their best friend too, right? Obviously. 

Will Ferrell—He makes me laugh but this guest is mostly for my husband. #mancrush

Kristin Wiig—My favourite character on hers from SNL... Penelope, the compulsive one-upper.

Josh Groban—He has a great voice, but his tweets are even better. Gotta love that self-deprecating humour.

Ellen—Hello, it's Ellen. She doesn't' even need a last name.

Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake—I love everything of theirs, especially if it comes in a box. 

Jennifer Lawrence—She photobombs and flips the bird. What's not to love?

Ricky Gervais—Brilliant. That is all.
