Stolen from Dooce

A meme about me & Lee:

What are your middle names?
Ernest and Louise. According to our middle names, we’re approximately 85 years old.

How long have you been together?
8 years, 2 months, and 1 week since our first date. Just short of 5 years since we got married.

How long did you know each other before you started dating?
The first time I talked to Lee was when he asked me out. Apparently, he had been “studying” me for months, but we never talked to each other. Which is weird since we went to the same high school, worked in the same store, and had a few mutual friends. I just totally never noticed him before!

Who asked whom out?
Lee asked me out, but first he had several people ask me what I was looking for in a guy, if IĀ  liked anyone, blah blah blah. So he had friends do the preliminary work and then he asked me on a date.

How old are each of you?
I just turned 27. He’ll be 28 in April.

Whose siblings do you see the most?
I have one sister who lives in Jacksonville. Lee has 5 sisters and a brother who live within 20 miles. You do the math.

Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?

Something that’s hard on both of us is dealing with our extended families. On my end, I cannot deal with some of the drama and selfishness of his mom and other relatives. From his perspective, my side of the family demands way too much time… get-togethers for every occasion and often for no occasion at all!

Did you go to the same school?
We went to the same High School but didn’t know each other then.

Are you from the same home town?
Yep! We both call Apopka, FL home although you could safely say we had two entirely different experiences of the same city.

Who is smarter?
In terms of reading people or “street smarts”, it’s Lee. I’m naive and would probably get us killed in two shakes. In terms of “book smarts,” definitely me.

Who is the most sensitive?
We’re both sensitive about different issues, but I’d definitely say Lee is more sensitive than I am. I have a background full of security–I know that no matter what happens, I have people who love me, that I’ll be fine, and that life goes on. Lee has been through a lot and doesn’t have that underlying calm that comes from a solid, peaceful upbringing. Because of that, he reacts to lifes ups and downs a bit more than I do. At least that’s how I see it! Now if somebody called us both ugly, he’d forget about it and say “screw them!” and I’d be worried I was ugly for three days. So maybe it’s a tie?

Where do you eat out most as a couple?
Wherever Lee wants. He’s so picky! He loves Chili’s. I’m sick to death of Chili’s.

Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
South Carolina. Gawd, we need to get out more! (I’ve been to Nicaragua and Spain, but poor Lee has never left the Southern US and Caribbean).

Who has the craziest exes?
Lee and I both have only 1 significant ex, probably since we met so young. Neither of us talk to those exes, and I don’t think either of them are crazy! In fact, they’re both nice people! Lee has had, however, a crazy stalker. She worked at Chick-fil-a where he used to get lunch, took a liking to him, and started following him to work. He had to have management escort her out of his store, at which time she threw BBQ packets at his car. That chick was bananas.

Who has the worst temper?

Another hard one! I have a temper in the sense that I can get irritated pretty darn fast, and then I’ll be all snippy and pissy. But I don’t ever get, like, mad. I’ve never really seen Lee with a temper, but that that’s probably because when he gets upset his response is to LEAVE THE SCENE. If he’s mad at me, he’ll go for a drive or something. But I have seen him almost rip a guy’s head off once. That was a pretty scary experience. I know Lee could protect us if needed!

Who does the cooking?
I do basics like daily dinners, but Lee makes fancy meals, desserts, and big breakfasts. So I do the daily stuff, he does the good stuff!

Who is the neat-freak?
Lee loves everything to look spotless. SPOTLESS! But. If you open his dresser drawers, they are INSANELY DISORGANIZED. I am the opposite. Things may look askew, but I know where everything is, and there’s an order to it, and each item has its place.

Who is more stubborn?
I am.

Who hogs the bed?
Neither of us, now that we have a King!

Who wakes up earlier?
Lee gets up for work pretty early, but if it’s a day we’re both off I will always wake up first. I’m a morning person!

Where was your first date?
An arcade at the mall, McDonald’s, and a movie. He tried!

Who is more jealous?
Neither of us. I know he works with skanks who would love nothing more than to ruin his marriage. He knows I’m getting more looks now that I’ve lost a lot of weight. We both know we’re coming home to one another at the end of the day, so it’s all good!

How long did it take to get serious?
Well, we immediately started dating each other exclusively and we spent every waking moment together. But it was probably 4 months before it was, like, serious. We got engaged after dating for two years.

Who eats more?
Lee. He always has.

Who does the laundry?
Me unless Lee is looking for a beat-down! Seriously, I hate when he attempts laundry. He washes my stuff all wrong, stuff shrinks, he puts it away in the wrong drawers… disaster! (ok so maybe I’m the neat freak.)

Who’s better with the computer?

Who drives when you are together?
Depends. Usually Lee, but if he thinks people are driving crazy and he starts getting upset, he’ll ask me to take over.

  1. I love reading this stuff! People always interest me! I had to laugh at the crazy bish throwing the BBQ packets! Assault with a spicy sauce!

  2. Hysterical… your answer to the sensitive question made me laugh… I mean honestly – what woman wouldn’t obsess if someone called them ugly? šŸ™‚ YOU are FAR from it though!! šŸ™‚

    I’m totally stealing this – it will go great this weekend as we’re celebrating our anniversary!
