The Fool: What is your favorite techno gadget?
GeoGoddess: My absolute favorite techno gadget is a sound cancelling device; I point it at sources of annoying noise (bass-blasting automobiles, neighbor's stereo speakers, screaming children) and it silences them! Unfortunately, it hasn't ever really worked for this purpose yet, so I just use it to change the channels or mute the TV.
The Fool: What was your first educational exposure to investing?
GeoGoddess: I took a Personal Finance class in college just because I was so very bad at anything to do with money (except spending). I was so intimidated that I barely pulled a C and stayed as far away from investing as I could get up until I found TMF.
The Fool: What's the one thing you'd MOST like to see The Motley Fool add to our service or improve upon?
GeoGoddess: A filter for all incivil discussion postings.
The Fool: What was the most significant discovery of the last century?
GeoGoddess: Shoes designated for the left or right foot. Prior to the last century, they were interchangeable. Ouch.
The Fool: What other financial products or services do you use?
GeoGoddess: Wall Street Journal, Value Line Investment Survey, Morningstar Reports, NAIC spreadsheets...my most important investing tool is my own eyes and ears and common sense.
The Fool: What's your favorite activity (within the realm of good taste)?
GeoGoddess: I love to move furniture around the house.
The Fool: What technology do you wish the world had but doesn't yet?
GeoGoddess: BS detectors for the credulous masses.
The Fool: Have you had a brush with fame, the proverbial '15 minutes'? Tell us about it.
GeoGoddess: David Bowie blew a spit bubble that landed on my cheek and the Gubernator once trespassed my professional and personal space.
The Fool: When you aren't working or sitting in front of the computer, what occupies your time?
GeoGoddess: Reading!
The Fool: What's the most overrated idea, person, or event in our culture?
GeoGoddess: The Entertainment Industry. Talk about a monumental waste of resources of all kinds (excepting creativity, of course, that's hardly used at all)!
The Fool: Your greatest fear? Any neurotic ones (agoraphobia, triskaidekaphobia, etc.)?
GeoGoddess: The guy who invented Muzak will have another idea.
The Fool: What's the best advice you've ever received?
GeoGoddess: Don't do anything you don't approve of.

Some people are not willing to be pleased.
The Fool: What's the strangest thing you've ever seen?
GeoGoddess: An octopus drying on a clothesline between a pair of white briefs and an apron. (A not uncommon sight in rural Greece, I'm told.)
The Fool: Which celebrity or public figure (past or present) do you most look like?
GeoGoddess: Tatum O'Neal on good days. Keith Richards on bad days.
The Fool: What's your greatest athletic achievement? Little League champ? Ran a marathon? Did 4 consecutive sit-ups?
GeoGoddess: I ran the Long Beach Half Marathon and finished happy and healthy, which was my goal!
