As I’m currently suffering from the Comcast Connection blues, I thought I’d send you my responses to a recent interview on money matters. Normally, I don’t discuss such things – but as you’ll see, I kept my answers brief and abnormally general. It was fun to return the line of questions with 5-7-5 haiku…
1. What’s in your wallet right now?
Abraham Lincoln sits next to George Washington. They feel so alone.
2. What do you wish your parents taught you about money?
Investments are good, but not in Star Wars figures removed from their box.
3. What is your worst habit around finances?
If I don't see it the debt is not really there. I need to spend less.
4. What makes you happy?
There's nothing better than clearing out my inbox before the day ends.
5. Personal philosophy around money?
Make more than you spend, never buy on emotion, sell stuff to buy more.
6. Where does money come from?
My mother told me there was no such tree around but I still believe.
7. What is your most prized possession?
My mind is intact and they can't take that away. Education rules.
8. Who is your role model?
There are so many, and I have only three lines with which to divulge.
9. What is your greatest achievement?
Hosting a live show on cable television for two special years.
10. What organizations do you support?
All those who believe in people, not just their things, are the ones I love.
11. What contributions to society do you want to make?
I would love to help everyone who helped me first so karma lives on.
12. How did you get your start?
Accidentally, as the greatest parts of life always come to pass.
13. If you could buy one thing right now what would it be?
So, if I could buy one thing right now it would be just three more wishes.
14. How do you indulge yourself?
At the sushi bar, I ask the chef to serve me whatever he likes.
15. Favorite activity that doesn’t cost a dime?
I crack silly jokes though the only one who laughs is usually me.
