another meme

Ok, I said I would look for something snarky but I didn't. Instead I am doing a meme.

This one is from Ann, and I am playing along as ordered by Crabby McCan'tsleep.

1. Who is your man?
That would be Mr. Logo, also known as Rusty Nails

2. How long have you been together?
We've been married for almost 17 years, we met 9 months before that.

3. How long dated?
We officially dated about a month, then we got engaged, fools rush in, eh?

4. How old is your man?
Oooooold, like, YEARS older than me

5. Who eats more?
Thing One I think, although if it's garlic bread I'll fight ya for it and the chocolate is ALL Mr. Logo's and don't you forget it.

6. Who said "I love you" first?
He did, and then I ran to the bathroom and puked. Isn't that a tender story?

7. Who is taller?
He is taller than me by about 5 inches

8. Who sings better?
That would be me. His singing is, well, painful. He makes up for it by having many other useful talents.

9. Who is smarter?
We divide this into areas of speciality. He handles the math, chemistry, and useful daily information and I handle the trivial and obscure.

10. Whose temper is worse?
Well, that is a toss up. He has a shorter fuse generally speaking but when I go off it tends to be pretty impressive.

11. Who does the laundry?
I do, but he handles his own ironing.

12..Who does the dishes?
Thing One handles the loading of the dishwasher and Thing Two unloads it. They are paid quite a generous allowances for it too.

13. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?
Facing from the foot Mr. Logo is on the right.

14. Who pays the bills?
Mr. Logo handles account payable. My inexact methods of bookkeeping cause him to twitch and there is this vein in his forehead that pulses. It seems healthier to just let him deal with it.

15. Who has bigger feet?
Mr. Logo

16. Who has longer hair?
I do, by quite a bit

17. Who is better with the computer?
That would be me, though it's probably more to do with inclination rather than ability.

18. Who mows the lawn?
Most often I do it, sometimes Thing One or Mr. Logo take a turn

19. Who cooks dinner?
Lately I've been the one throwing food in the vicinity of the table in the evenings.

20. Who drives when you are together?
In the family-mobile I drive more often but in the truck it's all him. For some reason Mr. Logo drives his truck like a little old man, drives the van like a crazy man and on his motorcycle is a textbook cautious, assertive but not aggressive, polite, and alert rider. It's fascinating.

21. Who pays when you go out?
I am a kept woman, so the point is moot.

22. Who is most stubborn?
Oooo, hard one, we are both pretty dang stubborn. I'd love to say he is but honestly, that MIGHT not be true.

23. Who is the first to admit when they are wrong?
We are both pretty good about that...usually.

24. Whose parents do you see the most?
Mine, we keep his parents on the east coast, we both prefer it that way.

25. Who kissed who first?
He kissed me first, and it was lovely

26. Who asked who out?
He asked me out to watch a movie, oh no, wait, actually, I asked him to come out with my cousin and I because I was ducking an obnoxious guy who wanted to ask me out so I guess that might be considered the official first.

27. Who proposed?
He did, and had ordered a custom designed ring and everything, it had amethysts in it. Have I mentioned Mr. Logo is quite the romantic? It's true.

28. Who is more sensitive?
About what exactly? We divide this one up too.

29. Who has more friends?
Probably I do, although we share very nicely.

30. Who has more siblings?
I do, middle child and he is an only child.

31. Who wears the pants in the family?
We share, our family is more an oligarchy rather than an autocracy and as long as I don't have any really strong objections I am more than willing to let him handle things how ever he would like. If I have strong objections I let him know and usually we manage to find a reasonable concensus point we can both live with happily.

You're way too diplomatic on many of these answers, especially number 31. You do crack me up. You have more friends too because you blog, duh.

I still want the mower, I don't care if it's your chore or not.

This was a fun meme.

My husband moved in with me about a month after we met, handing over his paycheck faithfully ever since. He's such a smart guy.

I've been around a bunch today.. It must be MeMe day. I do say though, your MeMe does get a giggle!

Cheers Ms Logo!

lime said...

hahahahaha, this was fascinating. i am not sure if it is a good idea for me to do this or not.

S said...

This looks like a fun and Ratburn ought to do it together then compare notes!

ARM said...

Aww...I love the answer to #26.

Dorky Dad said...

Cripes. I have so many sarcastic comments right on the tip of my tongue but I can't say anything. Instead, I'll say that the story about you barfing at "I love you" made my heart all atwitter.

Anonymous said...

Interesting. Puking at I love you?

cindra said...

Well, that was fun!

I want to piss you off in person so I can see the impressive temper!

Then we can cry, and hug, and eat chocolate.

furiousBall said...

The I love you vomit is the greatest thing ever ever.

Logophile said...

Egan~ Maybe I have more friends because I am a people person and THAT is also why I blog. As for #31 I thought about saying, "I let him wear the pants, as long as he does it right." but then I thought that might not sound very nice :p

Goldennib~ He's a keeper!

Blither~ All the cool kids do them, I heard that somewhere.

Lime~ Well, I do try to be fascinating, and I hear I am quite trying.

Susie~ Ohh yes, his and hers, I like that idea!

Arm~ Yes, I am a romantic too :p

Dorky Dad~ Oh come on, you have to share a couple now!!

Wreckless~ Well, you can't say I was unmoved

Cinda~ Just don't expect make up sex :p

Furiousball~ People really seem to enjoy that story, poor Mr. Logo

Jocelyn said...

Ah, only 31 questions? I was enjoying this so much I could have read at least 33 answers!

Oligarchy is one of my favorite words. So is chocolate.

Oh, and I've had a sense that if/when you go off, it's pretty impressive.

actonbell said...

Nice meme! So, you're a middle child and he's an only child--that's interesting.

egan said...

You're too cool for words. That's what I say.

Logophile said...

Jocelyn~ Glad you managed to enjoy the 31 here. Yes, its the red hair I've been told and hey, who am I to refuse a good excuse?

Actonbell~ The fact that I married an only child is one of the reasons we have 2.

Egan~ Thanks ;D

G said...

Loved it! I've said it before and I'll say it again - nobody rocks a meme quite like you do.

I'd like to do it, but I'm afraid what it might uncover. Hmmm, it is tempting.

Ann(ie) said...

Yay. I love it. Thanks for playing!! =) My stolen meme is your stolen meme.

Logophile said...

G~ Well, thank you, ma'am. When I read it I thought, well, why not?
What do we live for but to make sport for our neighbors and laugh at them in our turn?

Ann~ Anytime, it was fun! Sharing stolen memes is what internet friendship is ALL about :p
