Douglas Adams. Because then he'd be alive and could be writing some more!

Stephen King. Love his books, love his editorials. He has to be a very interesting, smart and funny man to spend some time with.

Hunter Thompson. Before he shot himself; well, maybe even now if I could bring him back. I'm sure he'd be rank and rotty and all, but I might do it. He was just that cool.

Bukowski or Poe(it'd be more like 6 shots followed by 6-8 beers)... you know.. if they were alive. Hell i probably wouldn't make it through that evening alive anyway.

I would love to meet Mikhail Bulgakov. I could go for some ice cold vodka and caviar with him. I am a fan of his Master and Margarita. No, it has nothing to do with the drink, either :D

Edgar Allen Poe would prob be my first choice. tho it might be a little scary once that guy was drunk...he'd pretty much scare me sober so drunk who knows.

and it'd be like 8 shots...im not a beer person. ha and then i'd have to chain smoke like a pack of cigarettes...cause that's what happens when i drink.
