Playing My Own Game

I posted some questions in an award blog yesterday for anyone who wanted to answer them. Just for interest sake. So far, Liewshn over at That’s What Shaun Said has answered these questions. The answers were fantastic! Check out that post here.

It was suggested that I answer them myself. Well, okay then. I shall have a crack. Here goes…

1. What is the #1 most played song on your iPod/similar device?

Apparently, and somewhat surprisingly, it is ‘Thank You’ by The Whitlams. I do love the song and band, though. And right now, I would like to dedicate that song to all my readers here. Yes, you! 😉

2. What was your favourite food as a child?

Roast Chicken. I could eat a whole roast chicken. And nothing else. Absolutely lived on it.

3. If you could choose anyone, who would you pick as your mentor?

Considering my answer to Q. 8. I am going to say Luc Besson. I’m a big fan, it’d just be awesomely cool to learn from the guy.

4. If you were reincarnated as an animal, what animal would you be?

Probably a penguin. I’m pretty chill. You ever see Surf’s Up? Yeah, I’d be a chill, surfing penguin like those guys.

5. What story do your friends always tell about you?

Depends which friends we’re talking about. I’ll pick a clean story… My brother likes the story of how I spent an entire day clocking the Sega Mega Drive game ‘Columns’. If you haven’t heard of it, it is similar to Tetris. I played it until the game score read “999999999…” as far across the screen as it could go, and the level read “99999999….” as far as that could go. I’ve never been that good at anything else in my life ever again. Or that dedicated. I played from after breakfast ’til bedtime. A good 12+ hours, without stopping. I couldn’t stop, because the blocks were moving too fast and if I paused it I felt I wouldn’t be able to keep up when I resumed. Nobody ever challenges me at Tetris anymore.

6. What is something you learned in the last week?

I have learned how to monitor a concussion. Regarding my friend’s head injury, the doctor said, “If he starts laughing at the walls, bring him back… he’s having a fit.”

7. If you won a massive sum in the lottery, what would be the first thing you’d do?

Book a trip. Probably just become a nomad for a while, traveling the globe. Buy that Kombi Van I always wanted and disappear, temporarily.

8. If you could have any job in the World, which one would you want?

Screenwriter. That’d be right up my alley.

9. What actor/actress would play you in a movie about your life?

Can Ryan Stiles do an Aussie accent? Because he’s a dead ringer for me, or vice versa. He’s a lot older than me, but if you ignore that…

Seriously, the kids at school used to call me Lewis, ’cause of his character on the Drew Carey Show.

The other one is Sean Bean… if he can do an Aussie accent.

10. Where’s Waldo?

He’s in here, man. *points to chest*
