Meme of the week: Your ‘List’

So we know each other quite well now, I hope, don’t we? We share stuff, right? Okay, so this week’s quick, fun summer meme (first posed by lovely wife on our hols) asks

Who’s on your List?

You know about the List, right? From Friends? It’s the list of five famous people you’re allowed to sleep with if you meet them and your partner won’t mind. So who’s on yours?

Lovely wife also added this little fillip for advanced List makers: who are your alternates – the two you’d add to your List in case you switched sexual orientation?

For those really interested, mine are (in descending order of obviousness): Ali Larter, Joanna Page, Elizabeth Banks, Christina Applegate and Julie Benz. With the addition of Ryan Reynolds and George Clooney, in case of emergencies (although lovely wife thinks I’d get on well with Stephen Fry, too).

As always, leave a comment with your answer or a link to your answer on your own blog.
