I totally stole this from my homegirl Badgergirl. Because she's funky fresh. Or some crap. I don't know.
Anyway! This one is fun. When you answer, you are answering for you and your significant other. Let me know if you try it.
What are your middle names?
Jason's is Paul. The one I was born with was Jo. Yes, I know. My mom hated me.
My drivers license has a different middle name now. I'll just let you guess about it.
How long have you been together?
We got together in December 1999. Jeeze Louise. We've been married for almost six years.
How long did you know each other before you started dating?
I did not know him before we went out. I had spoken to him online and on the phone.
Who asked whom out?
He asked me. Aww.
How old are each of you?
As of February 15th we are both 33. I'm four months (exactly) older.
Whose siblings do you see the most?
Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?
I dunno...we're pretty tough. Probably the whole our-income-went-down-$27000-this-year-let's-not-freak-out thing.
Did you go to the same school?
We did not.
Are you from the same home town?
I grew up in a small town in Tennessee. He grew up in the wealthiest county in the country. That would be a big fat no.
Who is smarter?
I think we are pretty equal, but our strengths are in very different areas. For example, he can do math in his head and I avoid math at all costs. He couldn't write his way out a wet paper bag and I just had my first book published. It all balances out and we're pretty even during our daily Jeopardy competitions.
Who is the most sensitive?
Oh God me. I can hardly stand myself most of the time.
Where do you eat out most as a couple?
As a couple? Just the two of us? That happens like, twice a year. If we're lucky. Usually it's Naples once and The Chop House the other time. We don't eat out a ton as a family but if we do? We like to go to small, local places.
Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
Who has the craziest exes?
Have you read my book? Me.
He probably has larger quantities of ex's though.
Who has the worst temper?
Me. Unless someone is mean to me and then Jason becomes the BullDog in the Alley.
Who does the cooking?
Jason is a much, much better cook than I am. I do most of the cooking though.
Who is the neat-freak?
There are many things "freak" about me, but "neat" is not one of them. I often come home and Jason is cheerfully vacuuming the rug. You decide.
Who is more stubborn?
We are both extremely stubborn and both like to be right. Fortunately we also listen to each other pretty well.
Who hogs the bed?
I'll give you a hint. This morning I referred to Jason as "Patrick Star". If you are not familiar, he's the starfish on Spongebob Squarepants. Imagine a starfish laying on your bed.
There you go.
Who wakes up earlier?
Me. The latest I'm ever up is 6am. Usually I'm up around 4am.
Jason has to be at work at 8:30am so he's up at like...8:18am.
Where was your first date?
We went to a Ragazzis which no longer exists in that location. Then we went back to his condo and watched The X-files, which he had on video.
Who is more jealous?
Neither one of us is very jealous, but if I have to pick I would say him.
How long did it take to get serious?
Um, I don't know? I think we both knew the very first night that we had something special. He told me a few years ago that he knew on the first date that we would always be together. I didn't know that first night, but I knew I really liked him. We seemed to work well together.
We started dating in December and he told me he loved me in February.
Then of course there was that whole dumping me for another girl thing. I won't dwell on it.
Who eats more?
Him. By a lot.
Who does the laundry?
We each do our own laundry. One of us gets quite testy about it (and his name rhymes with Kason).
Who's better with the computer?
Me. Jason is not completely computer inept, but he's not good with it either.
Who drives when you are together?
Usually him, unfortunately. Driving with him is generally pretty hurltastic. But you know how I like excitement. And nothing says excitement like holding on for dear life.
