A business man got on an elevator in a building. When he entered the elevator, there was a blonde already inside and she greeted him by saying, “T-G-I-F” (letters only).
He smiled at her and replied, “S-H-I-T” (letters only).”
She looked at him, puzzled, and said, “T-G-I-F” again.
He acknowledged her remark again by answering, “S-H-I-T.”
The blond was trying to be friendly, so she smiled her biggest smile and said as sweetly as possibly “T-G-I-F” another time.
The man smiled back to her and once again replied with a quizzical expression, “S-H-I-T.”
The blond finally decided to explain things, and this time she said, “T-G-I-F, Thank Goodness It’s Friday, get it?”
The man answered, “Sorry, Honey, It’s Thursday.”
Ha!! Lucky for us, it really is Friday. I love Fridays. And in honor of wrapping up another work week, it only seems appropriate to also take a break from the typical personal finance mumbo jumbo. I blog anonymously, but that doesn’t mean that I’m scared of getting personal. I figured we might try something new today. I’m gonna give you all an opportunity to ask me anything you’d like, and assuming it’s not a sketchy question, I’ll comment back with my response. Here are a few to help get the ball rolling…
Question: Why’d you name your blog “Punch Debt In The Face?”
Answer: Umm, because it’s questionably one of the most glorious PF blog names of all time. I can’t take credit for the inspiration, however, this idea came from a much higher power…. a unicorn. Okay, not really. The name just popped in my head one day.
Question: What’s your favorite piece of financial wisdom
Answer: I loved learning that you don’t have to make a ton of money to end up rich. Discipline, drive, and luck go a long way.
Question: Did you watch Captain Planet growing up?
Answer: No. The Parental Ninjas didn’t like the political undertones in the show. I also wasn’t allowed to watch Ren & Stimpy because it was too crude. I was a deprived child.
Question: What do you and Girl Ninja look like?
Answer: This… (minus the awkward black bars running across our faces)
Question: Any siblings?
Answer: Yes. An older sister who is a freakin’ genius (no joke, she skipped 3 yrs of school and graduated college at 19 with a B.S. in computer science), and a younger brother who is 6’7. No really, he’s Six Foot Seven. Wait, does that make me the little brother?
Question: What mutual funds do you own?
Answer: Three different Vanguard funds. VTSMX, VGTSX, and NAESX
Question: Why did you start blogging?
Answer: Honestly, ’cause I wanted to see if I could make a name for myself in the PF blogososphere. Oh and make money doing it. I’m shallow, I know.
Alright, you get the point. You ask. I answer. Pretty simple huh? Ask away…
p.s. If you all have no interest in me or my life, you can watch this beatboxing flutist instead…
