Ridiculous top 10 list

My friend, Annie recently posted her Top 10 list. Top 10 fictional characters that she would like to meet for coffee or a pint. After drafting a post 3 times on her Facebook wall, I realized that I simply have too much to say. Thus, the birth of my own post. #bandwagon #sheaskedforit #aaronmahlhastags

And, in all of my thinking about characters, I kept feeling myself pulled towards all the thought and care behind the characters. I kept having to remind myself not to pick authors. But listen, it is my blog and if I want to have coffee or a pint with an author, a creator, or a producer, then, dammit, I will. So, here we go, a spin on the top 10. 

Okay. Here goes. In order, of course. 

10. Captain Picard. Yes, I will admit it. On the internet. In public. This. Would. Be. Awesome.  
9. Seth Cohen. Or maybe Also Sandy and Kiersten, and Ryan. Okay, all the Cohens. Although this would have to be bagels and shmear.

On Christmakkah.  
8. J.R.R. Tolkien. We all knew it was coming. #hobbitlife
7. Glen A. Larson. The creator and producer of Battlestar Gallatica. So many unanswered questions!
6. The entire cast of Frasier, in character of course. Too much. Too much on me. 

5. J.K. Rowling.
4. Martin Luther King Jr. I still have not finished Strength to Love because I am wrecked by it. And that is lovely and profound. What an honor it would be. I guess I will have to wait until the new heaven and new earth. You can bet that is on the list. 
3. Dan Rydell. Okay, I have an actual crush on Dan Rydell. If you have not watched Sports Night, then you are missing out. Dan is the best! Him and his New York Renaissance. Which is, by the way, one of my favorite playlists, which I am listening to right this minute. #anniehadthisonetoo #bandwagon #butigethimalltomyself #noreally
2. Gandalf. I can't imagine anything other than a riveting conversation wherein I walk away not having learned at all what I thought I would, but something far more complex and needed. I would probably be set on some sort of mission as well. lovely. 
1. Sir Arthur Conon Doyle. I totally have an author crush on him. Who doesn't want to dig into the mind of someone who created Sherlock Holmes? So, so interesting!

Well, there you have it, folks. I want to hear yours. Really, really, I do. Please share.
