Oh dear, the relationship meme as stalked from Sundry.

What are your middle names?
Mine is Anne. J's is Lee. Our parents are clearly very original.

How long have you been together?
Almost ten years. And we've been married nearly eight.

How long did you know each other before you started dating?
I am not sure that we ever even started dating. We uh became close and well he never left.

Who asked whom out?
I asked him to a party. He tried to bring a girl with him. He claims he thought that I was trying to set him up with my friend.

How old are each of you?
We're both 30. I am four months older. J claims this practically makes me a predator.

Whose siblings do you see the most?
His brother. Which is not often. We haven't seen my sister in a couple of years.

Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?
Uh. Our infertility prior to having the baby.

Did you go to the same school?
No, I went to a women's college and massage school. J went through a voc school a couple of years ago.

Are you from the same home town?
J is from Modesto, CA and I was born in Des Moines, IA.

Who is smarter?
I'd say that we are probably about the same in very different ways. J is great with technology and puzzling out all kinds of problems. I am better with numbers and the boring book stuff.

Who is the most sensitive?
Oh dear me. I probably should toughen up but since he is pretty much made of leather it would still be me even if I were to do so.

Where do you eat out most as a couple?

A local pizzeria called Brooklyn Brothers. It is close to our house, delicious and a nice relaxing environment.

Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
Florida. For my sister's wedding.

Who has the craziest exes?
Oh there could be so much debate about this. His ex was still living in his apartment when we met (he claims this isn't true but oh I think I remember) and well she was a total nutjob. But essentially harmless. I have a cast of more threatening types but garden variety issues. But I am the only one with a former stalker.

Who has the worst temper?
J without question. I give him credit because he does a really good job of controlling it and fighting fair. But he has the explosive temper. And it looks like Mo inherited it. DELIGHTFUL let me tell you.

Who does the cooking?
I do. He can cook and actually worked as a cook for a time so he does it sometimes. But since I do most of the meal planning I usually cook.

Who is the neat-freak?
Oh I think I would really enjoy a neat freak. Neither of us are at all and this house is small so there is a lot of clutter. And in the ten years we have been together J has never once cleaned a fucking bathroom. This has nothing to do with neatness. I just like to bring up cleaning injustices whenever possible.

Who is more stubborn?
Oh the stubbornness in this house is epic and I really cannot say who is worse. Except the baby who may be the one Stubborn that rules us all. But I am the one with relatives who lived next door to each other without speaking for decades.

Who hogs the bed?

We both do. And we share with two dogs. We really need a King bed but our room is the size of a shoe box so that won't be happening.

Who wakes up earlier?
Me. I'm at work before he gets up.

Where was your first date?

Um. My apartment? I have to admit it is all pretty vague.

Who is more jealous?
Me. But we don't really have
that dynamic in our marriage.

How long did it take to get serious?

Almost immediately.

Who eats more?

He does. And yet, until very recently he was really really skinny. UNFAIR

Who does the laundry?
We share it. He is not allowed to do my laundry since he ruins my clothes all the time and yet he still keeps doing it. One of my favorite cashmere sweaters was ruined about a week ago. Latest soldier to die in valiant battle.

Who’s better with the computer?

J is a network administrator. Take a guess.

Who drives when you are together?
J. He thinks I drive too slow. Of course his driving makes me act like my mother and shriek and gasp for breath.

Now everyone else! Link in the comments.

I'd love to hear how the rest of the evening played out. LoL.
