Hi Andrea and Grandma Phyllis!
Throw another mickey on the fire and settle in!
Avatar Wed. 1/8/14 7:03pm Mike East:

Hey 1940's Brooklyn! That's where my Grandma Dorothy was from, too (RIP)
Avatar Wed. 1/8/14 7:11pm Matt from Springfield:

Syracuse U! I was born in that town.
Avatar Wed. 1/8/14 7:17pm hazelsavacool:

aww. your grandmother sounds so sweet. cherish her for the time you have with her.
Avatar Wed. 1/8/14 7:19pm Marcel M:

I would by a Les Paul R9
Avatar Wed. 1/8/14 7:21pm Greg from Bloomfield:

Mine would all go into the bank. Such is freelance!
Avatar Wed. 1/8/14 7:21pm Mike East:

I would probably take my family on a vacation....someplace not cold.
Avatar Wed. 1/8/14 7:22pm Pine:

Live on my own for a year. Someplace cheap.
Avatar Wed. 1/8/14 7:22pm chris:

I like the idea of spending all (almost) of one's money before one dies. If that's sharing with the family, great. If that's donating it to charity or seeing all the world, great too.
Avatar Wed. 1/8/14 7:23pm chris:

BTW, I'd spend the $5K to start my own whiskey distillery.
  Wed. 1/8/14 7:24pm Joe Schmoe:

1. Help with the kids education.
2. Help with the kids when they get married.
After that, spend every cent before you leave this place so those greedy relatives aren't fighting forever.
Avatar Wed. 1/8/14 7:25pm Nick the Bard:

You knoww hat I'd do with the $5,000? Pay to have some callers :P

OK, real - pay off bills (so, that takes out half of it), rest, half of that in the bank, buy a bunch of organizing supplies, then maybe go get some sushi.
  Wed. 1/8/14 7:26pm E.T.Smith:

5K: I'd put it towards the sort of house my wife desires to live in. Something old but well-built, seasoned and cat friendly. Shelves for books, a porch for sitting. Maybe in Pitts burgh, Maybe in Brooklyn. BtW, I loved the travel example, as my wife is from Kansas, I'm from NJ, and we've travelled a few times to each.
Avatar Wed. 1/8/14 7:27pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Pittsburgh is great.
  Wed. 1/8/14 7:27pm Robert:

I'd pay back friends what they've lent me the past few yrs., when I didn't have living expenses. I do have a slight shot at $6,000 if our team at Idea Connection wins the technical challenge we addressed; it has to do with purifying plastic. And even there I feel like I carried only a little of the burden of the team.
  Wed. 1/8/14 7:33pm E.T.Smith:

My father regularly declares his plan for his twilight years is to spend all his money on fun and toys, and bequeth his kids nothing but the tab for the funeral. I usually tell him I'm keeping a fresh garbage and shovel ready for the day.
  Wed. 1/8/14 7:34pm E.T.Smith:

garbage BAG and shovel...
  Wed. 1/8/14 7:38pm Robert:

Everybody's managed to avoid the cliche of saying they'd donate to the station.
Avatar Wed. 1/8/14 7:39pm steve:

i actually just lost a grandmother with whom i was very close a few weeks ago and inherited almost exactly $5k. my plan is to buy some nice new shirts and sweaters (which i know would have pleased her), take my family out to a nice lunch, put a little towards traveling, little towards bills and a new computer, and put the rest away and admire it in my bank account.
  Wed. 1/8/14 7:42pm Robert:

If I DID have money set aside for WFMU, though, I'd put it toward rum for Irwin, because everyone knows THAT's what really fuels the station.
Avatar Wed. 1/8/14 7:45pm Skirkie:

Sadly it would all go toward student loans and I wouldn't stop having student loans.
Avatar Wed. 1/8/14 7:46pm Skirkie:

Ok probably not all of it.
  Wed. 1/8/14 7:47pm Robert:

I wanted to donate jugs of liquid soap (inventory from the market failure of my patented non-irritating bubble bath), but Ken says the bathrooms there don't have the type of dispensers that can be refilled from a jug.
Avatar Wed. 1/8/14 7:50pm sc123:

This is the other Scott, Jr. Please let Grandma know that it's OK to refer to her son as anything she wishes. She adopted him and fought for him and no one will question her love.
  Wed. 1/8/14 7:53pm Robert:

College was A LOT cheaper then. Some people worked their way, something practically unheard of now. Unfortunately the student loans have bid up the price!
  Wed. 1/8/14 7:55pm Robert:

Darn, now you've gotten me started on the absurd economics of most higher ed. I taught college, and it was outrageous how oversold it is, people being coerced into going who had no business and no legitimate call for it other than credentialism.
Avatar Wed. 1/8/14 7:57pm Matt from Springfield:

Sorry to hear about your grandmother, steve :(
But that is indeed a GREAT way to honor her memory and bring happiness to you and those around you.
  Wed. 1/8/14 7:57pm aam:

hi andrea. thanks for working on the fma
  Wed. 1/8/14 7:58pm Robert:

I told my students, "College is a racket."

The irony is that I finally finished paying off my student loans the month before I started going into debt again from lack of income.
Avatar Wed. 1/8/14 7:59pm steve:

thanks Matt. we're simple people - all sweaters and brunches and trips to the beach, so i think its a good tribute! im also gonna take a day or two off and go to the Silverball Pinball Museum.
Avatar Wed. 1/8/14 8:00pm Skirkie:

Oh god, should I be making reservations?
Avatar Wed. 1/8/14 8:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Andrea and Grandma Phyllis! That was a sweet little show.

Sounds mighty fine, steve! :)
Avatar Wed. 1/8/14 8:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Have a good night, everyone!
  Wed. 1/8/14 8:02pm thatsyourtrouble:

Come back again soon, Grandma Phyllis!
  Wed. 1/8/14 8:03pm thatsyourtrouble:

"What gangbang?!"
Avatar Wed. 1/8/14 8:03pm Ange:

Thank you all for joining! We'll have another live show when I get exhausted again
  Wed. 1/15/14 11:39am Rae:

Thank you so much for sharing your incredible grandma! I'm really sorry I missed the live show and the chance to call in for some Grandma time. I hope you do this again. (ps: I love love love your show. don't stop!)
