    So we’ve been tagged. No, not vandalized. The Budgeting Babe tagged me to answer some questions, and ruined a perfectly good 3-day weekend. (just kidding)

    Here are the rules:

    • Post these rules
    • Answer 11 questions from the person who tagged you
    • Create 11 questions for the people you tag
    • Tag 11 people and link them to your post
    • Let them know you tagged them.

    Okay, let’s move on to the questions:

    1. Big or small, name one financial mistake you’ve made. – This one’s easy. I got a payday loan. I wrote a hilarious story about it for ImpulseSave so that I could win a contest. I lost.
    2. What is the charity nearest and dearest to your heart? – I am a big believer in making high-quality education available to kid who don’t normally have the opportunity to get it. As such, I have tutored for and donated to organizations that further this goal (anonymity is kinda important, but you get the idea).
    3. What’s the best financial advice you ever got? – “It’s only work.” – My mom.
    4. If someone gave you $1,000 today and you had to spend it on something OTHER than paying down debt or investing it, what would you do with it? – iPad. It’s an irrational want since I have an iPhone and a MacBook, Her has an iPod Touch.
    5. What’s your favorite meal? – Whatever my mom cooks.
    6. What is the farthest you’ve ever run? – 13.1 miles. Before that it was probably 2 miles and away from the cops.
    7. Where is one place you’d like to visit? – Machu Picchu. South America seems so far but really isn’t.
    8. Name one item on your bucket list. – Sail around the Greek islands as a part of a flotilla (group of boats that help each other in the journey).
    9. Could you live on half your income? – If Her quit her job, then we’d be able to live off of my income. If I quite my job, I think we’d have to consider some severe austerity measures.
    10. What did you spend yesterday? – Nothing. But my wife, Her….
    11. Are you financially independent? – Nah.

    Now I have to pick 11 people to answer questions that I make up? Oooookay. Here goes: Newlyweds on a Budget, Couple Money, Fiscally Chic, Minting Nickels, Broke Newlyweds, Shopping Detox, Graduated Learning, See Debt Run, 3 Thrifty Guys, Don’t Quit Your Day Job, and Well Heeled. Tag, bitches.

    Answer these questions:

    1. Have you ever been ripped off and for how much?
    2. Do you have pets? Are they awesome?
    3. What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?
    4. Why are most childrens musicians terrible?
    5. What’s the most offensive thing about the $5 bill?
    6. Prior to Jeremy Lin’s current basketball greatness, he was staying on his brother’s couch because he didn’t have a definitive contract with the New York Knicks. Was the couch long enough to fit an out-stretched Jeremy Lin?
    7. What’s the least you’ve purchased with $100?
    8. What’s a reasonable amount of money to spend at a strip club?
    9. How much do you tip the bartender? Really? That’s it?
    10. How much would you pay for the perfect hamburger?
    11. Is an iPad worth it?

    Go forth and answer and entertain me!
