An Interview with TMFOpie

Last updated: 9/14/2007
The Fool:
What's the best restaurant you've ever been to? (Include name, location, and average bill for two)
TMFOpie:
Well, it's a toss-up between two joints in Philly. One is Le Bec-Fin, one of the finest french restaurants in the States. The other is Pat's steak shop in South Philly. Cheesesteaks don't come any better.
The Fool:
Tell us about your greatest personal success, not necessarily finance related.
TMFOpie:
Back in the mid 90s I spent 6 months going to school in Spain and travelling around the country. It was a fantastic learning experience, even though I didn't have quite as much fun as they had in the movie Barcelona. Plus I didn't see Mira Sorvino.
The Fool:
Okay Gilligan (or Ginger), you're stuck on a deserted island. What one material possesion would you hope to have with you?
TMFOpie:
Well, if I have hopes of getting off the island, I guess a mirror. If I'm stuck there for longer than a three hour tour, then give me a leatherman's tool. Those things can do anything.
