Oh, what the hell.

Posted: February 21, 2009 in Calvin, meme

1iconfascinatinggoon1Another meme contagion, spreading its way through the innernets.

———-

What are your middle names?

Calvin’s is “Wayne” and mine is “Laura” in real life.

How long have you been together?

Going on eleven glorious years.

How long did you know each other before you started dating?

Around three years. Four, maybe?

Who asked whom out?

Uhhh, yeah. That one’s complicated.

How old are each of you?

I’m 34 and Calvin is 45.

Whose siblings do you see the most?

Calvin’s, since they live in this state. And of his two sisters, we see his sister Karen the most often.

Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?

Nothing, really. Maybe just our individual idiosyncrasies. There’s stuff about him that annoys me, and stuff about me that annoys him.

Did you go to the same school?

No, we went to school 3000 miles and 10 years apart.

Are you from the same home town?

No, he’s a native Arizonan and I am from Maine.

Who is smarter?

When it comes to words, me. When it comes to handy-man stuff, him. Math, me. Mechanics, him. Relationships, me. Logic, him.

Who is the most sensitive?

You know, he’s going to protest, but I’m actually going to have to say Calvin on this one. I’m more pragmatic than him, in all actuality. I let things roll off of me quite well, where Calvin will analyze things to death. Hmm. I’m going to have to have him formulate his own answers to this meme.

Where do you eat out most as a couple?

Geez, everywhere. But you’ll see us most often at the Dark Horse.

Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?

Hawaii (2864 miles), with Maine coming in second (2331 miles).

Who has the craziest exes?

We used to be tied on this one, but mine wins by virtue of his staying power.

Who has the worst temper?

Calvin. I don’t get pissed off easily at all, though that wasn’t always the case. I had a wretched temper when I was young, but I outgrew it. Calvin? He embraces his temper. Though, too, he’s mellowed out over the time that I’ve known him. It’s my excellent influence.

Who does the cooking?

I do more of it, but I think Calvin’s better at it. I’m a recipe-follower, while he’s an intuitive cook.

Who is the neat-freak?

Calvin, by far. His standards of cleanliness and neatness far exceed my own.

Who is more stubborn?

Calvin wins this one, too.

Who hogs the bed?

We’d both say the other, but in the end he ends up with all the sheet and I end up with all the blanket.

Who wakes up earlier?

Calvin on weekdays, me on weekends.

Where was your first date?

If I recall correctly, it was out to dinner and then to see a performance at the Improv.

Who is more jealous?

Calvin. I’m pretty much the opposite of jealous.

How long did it take to get serious?

Hmm. Another tough question. Not very long, in the grand scheme, once Calvin made up his mind.

Who eats more?

Me, dammit. I’m a three-meal-a-day-plus-snacks kind of person, he prefers to just eat once or twice.

Who does the laundry?

Me, dammit.

Who’s better with the computer?

Calvin. He works on computers for his job, after all. I can type faster, though. He’s a hunt-and-pecker. Heh.

Who drives when you are together?

Calvin, usually, though I’ve been known to fight him for the keys. The Trailblazer is so much fun to drive after all!

    Yeah, I did the same thing on my Myspace blog yesterday. Here it is in all its fascinating glory:

    What are your middle names?
    Mine is Leslie, Brian’s is Wreden. If you knew his mother, you’d be very surprised about the uniqueness of that. But being bookworms, we’ve gotten a lot of mileage out of it: “Hey, Babe – you WREDEN a new book today?” Har har har.

    How long have you been together?
    We just passed the thirteen year mark, married for nine of those years.

    How long did you know each other before you started dating?
    Maybe a week or two? Very shortly after we met we were on the phone one night and he said, “I just wanted to tell you I’m not seeing anyone else and I hope you’re not either.” After that it was ON.

    Who asked whom out?
    The night we met he pulled a fast one by giving ME HIS phone number, in order to put the ball in my court. But after I sobered up the next day I was all nervous so I made my friend Renee call and act like me. So actually my friend Renee asked him out.

    How old are each of you?
    I just turned the big 4-0 and he’s 38. I like ’em young.

    Whose siblings do you see the most?
    Now that we live here, I guess it would have to be his, but for the majority of our relationship we’ve spent way more time with Sister.

    Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?
    That’s a good question. Probably money, but it’s not that we argue over it since there’s usually not enough of it to argue about, but I guess that’s what’s presented us with the most challenges.

    Did you go to the same school?
    Out of all the schools we both attended, the only one we went to together was when we both took classes at Lake City Community College. So for a short time we were college sweethearts! Gay.


    Are you from the same home town?
    Nope – Elgin, SC for him, Inverness, FL for me. We grew up four hundred miles apart, yet here we are.

    Who is smarter?
    I’ve never met anyone who knows more about history and politics, we’re about the same as far as English is concerned and we’re both equally mathmatically retarded. I’m better with computer-type stuff.

    Who is the most sensitive?
    I am a delicate flower. Though for a man-type person, he does have a very sensitive side. Don’t tell him I told you that.

    Where do you eat out most as a couple?

    We rarely eat out, but if we do it’s Chinese, Mexican or sea food.

    Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
    Only between Florida and South Carolina. Dude doesn’t like to fly, so that limits us quite a bit.

    Who has the craziest exes?
    Him, without a doubt.

    Who has the worst temper?
    Me, without a doubt.

    Who does the cooking?
    Mostly me, but he does it a lot more these days and sadly whenever he does it usually tastes much better than mine.

    Who is the neat-freak?
    Anyone who knows us knows the answer to this question is an unequivacable ME. Though his slovenliness has rubbed off on me so that I’m only really a “neat freak” in comparison to him.

    Who is more stubborn?
    Have I ever told you the story where he got so drunk this one Halloween he got us all kicked off of a hayride? By the time we got back to Grace’s house, he was still acting retarded and would not get in the car so I could take him home. We lived a mile and a half away from her at the time and he decided he’d rather run home than ride in the car since I was being really mean by not letting him drive. I hated his guts by that point and let him get a fifteen minute headstart. When I finally caught up to him he was on a side street and as I turned onto the street, he crouched down in the middle of the road, thinking that would make him invisible to me. After threats of bodily harm, he finally agreed to get in the car after another twenty minutes or so. The next day he tried to deny the whole thing.
    Short answer? HIM.

    Who hogs the bed?

    Ask Brian, ask Delorme, ask Grace, ask anyone who’s ever shared a bed with me.

    Who wakes up earlier?
    ME, god-dang-it.

    Where was your first date?

    A Mexian restaurant called Monterey’s, the movies to see From Dusk ‘Til Dawn and then Books-a-Million, where he bought me what turned out to be one of my favorite books ever. After my friend Liz found out he bought me a book on our first date she told me I’d probably marry him.

    Who is more jealous?
    We take turns.


    How long did it take to get serious?

    Not very long. We started dating in February and by July were living together.

    Who eats more?

    He usually eats another full meal between dinner and bedtime. Him.

    Who does the laundry?
    He’d say he does, but putting the clothes in the washer, pouring the detergent in and turning it on doesn’t constitute “doing the laundry” in my book.

    Who’s better with the computer?

    See question above about who’s smarter. He uses the computer to play poker and other games, period. Though he finally agreed to opening an email account this year after finding out everyone in his family had one except him.

    Who drives when you are together?
    He does, unless we’re driving to or from Florida. Because he can read in the car without getting nauseous, he’s happy to be a passenger and I’m happy to be able to control what music we listen to.
