TM: What is your biggest Pet Peeve?
TM: What does feng shui mean?
Michael: To me? Or literally?
Michael: It is the arrangement, spacially, of light and objects to create harmony around you.
TM: What does it mean to you?
Michael: Common sense.
TM: Would you rather be a tree, a garden vegetable, or a body of water?
Michael: I'd have to say a tree because a vegetable is too small to hug and the sea is too large. The Giving Tree is one of my favorite books. And when I lived in Florida and it rained and I was down, I used to get in my car and drive into the orange groves. And I'd run around with the trees (and sometimes I'd take my clothes off) because for some reason it was very comforting to me. Trees are the closest things to people.
TM: Was that one of your favorite childhood games, running around naked with the trees?
Michael: Well I wasn't actually a child at the time! (Laughter) My favorite childhood game was Toss Across and that maze with the metal ball in it.
TM: If you could wake up in the morning with a skill that you don't already possess, what would it be?
Michael: I wish I could paint.
TM: What would you paint?
Michael: My family.
TM: Any good stock tips?
Michael: Well I'll tell you a little story. I was doing a show about eight years ago and one of the guys said to me "I have a great stock tip for you. There is this company that makes coffee but they've got a great concept and its really gonna go...it's called Starbucks." And I said, "Like the character from The Rainmaker? Okay, yeah, thanks." Two months later, someone told me that there's a book chain that's gonna be really big. There's gonna have a café and it's gonna buy out all the small book shops and it's called Barnes and Noble. Well, I ignored those two.
