The Inklings because that's the mood I'm in.


The firewall here at work doesn't like your polls, so I can't vote. I'd take any of the above to meet, but you asked who we'd hang out with so I'd take the Lost Generation. That would be one heck of a party. Hell, Hemingway and Fitzgerald could drink the rest of that poll under the table by themselves.
