The Thinking Meme

I saw that Silverneurotic did this meme on her site and I kinda wanted to do it.

If you had to choose one vice in exclusion of all others what would it be?
Coffee. Love the coffee.

If you could change one specific thing about the world what would it be? I want peace. So that means no war. And that also means the destruction of all nukes and crazy weaponry that kills people. So those things, but I also wish the world wasn't full of illnesses and diseases. But war is more our own fault, we have control over that, so it's more feasible to curtail!

Name the cartoon character you identify with the most. Daffy Duck is my boy! Although, I don't really think I'm like him, but he always makes me laugh, that surly bastard!

If you could live one day in your life over again which one would it be? I've had too many good days. Hard to choose one. Any day I've gotten to paint and also play basketball. Then gotten to hang out with friends. Loved days like that. Those were good times.

If you could go back in history and spend a day with one person who would it be? Leonardo da Vinci, but I don't speak Italian, so we'd have a communication problem. Hmmm, I'll go with my favorite painter, Ivan Albright. Well, I would have also really liked to have gotten to spend a day with my grandfather who passed away before I was born.

What is the one thing you lost, sold or threw away that you wish you could have back? My bike from Chicago. I miss it. I should've shipped it here, but I didn't. I'm really nostalgic about that bike, it was a road bike, manufactured by Giant in the 80s, nice colors, great frame. Together, we travelled all over Chicago.

What is your one most important contribution to this world. I try to be good to people. I try to spread positive energy, hehe, please disregard the previous post!

What is your one hidden talent that nearly no one knows about? I'm really a duckbill platypus, people never realize this talent.

What is your most cherished possession? My glasses or contacts. They let me see the world!

What one person influenced your life the most when growing up? Other than family, I'd have to say Michael Jordan. Seriously. I loved the guy's will, his determination, his work ethic. Sounds trite, but it's true. I felt that his work ethic was the key to his success, and in turn I always knew that no matter what, I wanted to bust my ass to improve myself in anything I did and just be the best that I could possibly be. Haha. I'm being truthful!

What one word describes you better than any other? I'll say 'ducky' for the hell of it.

I'll have to agree with glasses being the most valuable thing I have. I never thought of that before! Thanks for "opening my eyes" to gratefulness!
Ducky...I like that. Can us close blog buddies call you that now and then????

Tara said...

No war? Wow! What would everyone do with their time? Hehe. I know we'd think of something. There would be some nuts out there protesting that we don't have any wars going on.

I might do this meme, it looks fun.

JP said...

Good Stuff! I like Daffy too.

Bice said...

No nukes? No war? Well, I could still kill you with my hands... unless you plan to take those away too.

Babybull40 said...

I agree with you.. it's easier to not have war than diseases.. some things we can control.. war being one of them.. and I think that Duckbill platypus' are very talented...

Battlerocker said...

Coffee is a vice now? %&*#*!!!

Lauren Mitchell said...

Great meme!

Sebastien said...

Sonja: Yeah, glasses are so integral! Of course, you can call me anything you want!

Tara: Haha, you're probably right. People have so much anger and agression, need to get it out one way or the other!

JP: Thanks! Haha, Daffy is cool!

Bice: Of course you wouldn't have hands anymore. Or teeth, can't bite people either.

Babybull: Cool, thanks for reconizing my duckbill talents!

Battlerocker: Yeah, it's pretty weak. But I'm really not a vice-oriented person (at least at don't think I am!). I'm working on the poker, maybe that'll become indispensable?

Lauren: Thanks Lauren!!!

Fringes said...

What a nicely practical answer to the most cherished possession answer.

Rambo wants to know how you left all these introspective answers without mentioning him even once.

MrManuel said...

Yeah, glasses/contacts are so important. I am legally blind without my contacts. Couldn't tell it wa smy wife from 10 feet away I'm sure...

WAT said...

Hmmm...

Duckbill Platypus, Daffy Duck, "ducky". Very interesting. I see a pattern here.

If I could go back in history and spend time with someone? Jesus. Just because he was a cool dude.

Shaymus O'flatulence's Blog said...

Hey I watched Aeon Flux this week...fun movie

Have you seen the Oz movie Wolf Creek?

Sebastien said...

Fringes: Haha thanks!!! Yes, about Rambo...I LOVE HIM! I can't call him my favorite possession, he is my best friend!!! I gotta do a post on Rambo, he's hilarious.

Mrmanuel: Yeah, vision is soooo important! Good thing we can wear glasses or contacts!

WAT: Haha, there is a huge tendency, I wonder if I'm secretly infatuated with ducks! Well, I am a duck... Great answer, Jesus, he was a cool guy.

Shaymus: Ohh, never seen that one. Haven't heard of Wolf Creek, did you like?

If I could go back in time I would somehow convince Oscar Wilde to grab his family and move to France, instead of staying in Britain and spending two years in jail and losing everything, even his health and shortly aftewards his life. I'd probably just use his own argument, which he wrote in De Profundis: do it for your kids, man.

Sebastien said...

Hey, that's a good one Mariana... I didn't know he had a family... I need to read some Oscar Wilde, love his plays, but been years since I've read anything by him.

Mariana said...

Oh yes, he was married and had I believe two kids (not sure how many there were.) I once saw a documentary on his family and a grandson of his said that if you had asked him a few years ago if he was proud of his granddad he would have said no. That's a shocking thing to say, considering he was such a genius and a sweet person. But when he refused to save himself and go to jail it ruined his family. They had to run away and change their names, they lost their respectability, their fortune, their friends, everything. In jail he kept thinking that if only he had gotten his priorities straight he would have saved himself and his kids and none of this would have happened. It's a total tragedy. Oh, where's a time machine when you need one.

Sebastien said...

That's terrible. It really is worth making sacrifices sometimes for our family, even it's not the best choice for ourselves. Very sad...

Babs said...

Someone else mentioned it, but I am seeing a duck theme here. Maybe this is your "power animal" like the penguin in Fight Club.

Sebastien said...

Babs: Oh man, I always thought the German Shepherd was my power animal, but maybe you're right, maybe it is a duck!
