I love this game! Okay, so, which five people — alive or dead! — would you most like to share Thanksgiving dinner with? Catherine says, “Audrey Hepburn and all the guys who’ve played James Bond, except Roger Moore.” Annika got a little more creative than Catherine and said, “Coco Chanel, Patti Labelle — she ca…
