7 Questions for Brainfuel’s Chris Tingom

During the closet blog’s first Entrepreneur of the Month interview, I had a series of random questions for Chris to answer (I thought it would be fun). So why 7 questions and not 5 or 10? I originally had several questions lined up just in case Chris had to plead the fifth on some, so here are the 7 that made the cut.

Q: What is your biggest pet peeve?
A: That’s a good question… people who don’t sign their emails. I mean if you think about it, most people assume that the name that appears in the email is good enough. A lot of people don’t write their name at the bottom.

Q: What is the question that you get asked the most?
A: “Where’s your office?”

Q: If there was one person you could meet dead or alive, who would it be?
A: Okay, some runners up: Jesus, Lincoln, maybe someone insane like Jesse James, Albert Einstein would be good. There are a lot of people that would be interesting… maybe Superman?

Q: So far, who is the most famous person you’ve met?

A: I’ve met a couple of Congressmen; I’ve never met a President… I’ve seen one. I’ve met some baseball players. I’m sure I’ve met someone famous I can’t think of. I would just have to say some Congressmen. There are two in Congress now, Todd Akin and Jim Talent.

Q: What’s the last good CD you’ve listened too?
A: I bought this guitar CD for Christmas and I played it for about 2 days straight, and then Tom said I should change it so I haven’t played that since then. There was this one CD that someone gave me recently… The Fray, yes that’s the one.

Q: Can you name an interesting thing about yourself that not many people know about?
A: I have 2 alarm clocks. My regular alarm and my cell phone alarm. They go off about the same time, it’s the number of times I hit the snooze that’s important.

Q: Have you invented any good words lately?
A: For a long time I thought the word coolness was a word that I had invented, but then I found it in the dictionary. And since then more or less I tend to not invent words, instead I invent phrases… I tend to come up with them on a whim. The latest favorite according to Tom is “That’s like a whale eating blueberries for breakfast.”

  1. Hahaha! I can’t believe I said I’d want to meet Jesse James. I can imagine the confrontation now.

    Jesse: “Give me all of your money, now!”

    Chris: “But Jesse, I travelled all this way just to meet you!”

    Jesse: “Bang!”

    The Salad Shooter would have been a better choice by far.

    Thanks –
