Okay, can I help that there’s a survey/meme that actually applies to this blog so I can spread my survey-whorage around? :D Onward!
1. Who eats more?
Probably me. M tends to forget to eat unless her stomach’s about to eat itself. I’m the muncher.
2. Who said “I love you” first?
I… am actually not sure.
3. Who is the morning person?
Neither of us, although our work schedules have so programmed our bodies that we can pretty much never sleep in anymore.
4. Who sings better?
Me, although neither of us are great singers. I just have a bit more range.
5. Who’s older?
I am, by a whopping six months (almost to the day).
6. Who’s smarter?
Definitely not a question with a “me” or “her” answer. We’re both smart in different ways. I think I may come across as smarter because I’m better able to express myself, but M has one hell of a brain in that head. She’s just a little more quiet about it.
7. Whose temper is worse?
Hers, for sure. It takes a lot to get her fuse lit but once it is, it’s a very short fuse and she tends to be a little explosive. I don’t think I mentioned that time she punched a hole in the wall, did I…? Oh well, luckily for both of us one of her many talents is being quite handy around the house, so she patched it up. :D
8. Who does the laundry?
Predominantly me, but she’s been known to start or switch out loads.
9. Who does the dishes?
Me. M hates doing dishes. If she’s in the right mood I can sometimes convince her to help me dry/put away, but generally it’s me.
10. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?
That would be me but only, I must say, because the right side of the bed is the side up against the wall. I prefer sleeping up against the wall if the bed is positioned correctly. Although last night we weren’t in a bed up against a wall and I still got in on the ride side, out of habit.
11. Whose feet are bigger?
Mine, but barely. We technically can wear the same size in some shoes but I tend to go a size bigger, mostly ’cause of how wide my feet are. We’re the same size length-wise but my feet are much wider.
12. Whose hair is longer?
Mine, but barely. We both have very short hair.
13. Who’s better with the computer?
Me, although funnily enough, it was M who got me from Explorer to Firefox.
14. Do you have pets?
Yeah, two dogs, two cats and a rabbit.
15. Who pays the bills?
We both do, although lately I’ve been taking on more of the household bills so she can pay off credit card bills. I should mention we don’t have a joint account… yet.
16. Who cooks dinner?
Usually M. I’m not a huge fan of cooking but she’s a master in the kitchen.
17. Who drives when you are together?
Typically me, unless for some reason I don’t feel like it, or I’ve been drinking.
18. Who pays when you go out to dinner?
We usually take turns, or the person who wanted to go to dinner/suggested it will pay.
19. Who’s the most stubborn?
I would say M is, but only by the most marginal fraction. We’re both very, very stubborn.
20. Who is the first one to admit when they’re wrong?
Haha. For either of us to admit we’re wrong just about takes an act of Congress.
21. Whose family do you see more?
In terms of whole family, we see hers more. But in terms of frequency regardless of amount of people, mine. My mother lives closer and visits more often, but she’s the only one of my family we see with any sort of regularity.
22. Who named your pet?
Jonna and Shredder came with their names, Cinderella was named by M as a kitten (long before we got together), Piper and Xander were named by me. Well, I should explain a bit more on Xander. I had originally named him Alexander and he was just going to be Alex for short. But one time when he was still a kitten he got a raging case of the kitten zoomies, and we had just recently watched the movie XXX with Vin Diesel, and M jokingly goes, “Welcome to the Xander Zone!” And poof, that was it, he was Xander instead of Alex for short.
23. Who kissed who first?
I kissed her. Even after plying her with alcohol (yes, our first extraplatonic encounter was fueled by liquid courage), she was quite shy, so I took the initiative.
24. Who asked who out?
Not really applicable. After that ETOH-fueled night, we were just… together. One night we were just kinda like, “So, should we make it official?” And that night became our anniversary (November 21st for those who are interested), but there was no real asking-out situation.
26. Who’s more sensitive?
In what respect? ;D Physically I’m much more sensitive (teehee), but in the sense that this question was truly meant to be posed, M is. Emotionally I tend to be a little colder and harder, although it’s something that seems to be improving lately what with certain… changes in our relationship. (Post to come about that later!)
27. Who’s taller?
Me, by half an inch if that.
28. Who has more friends?
She has kept in touch with more people from her past, but currently I would say it’s about the same, as most if not all of our friends are mutual.
29. Who has more siblings?
Her, by a landslide! I’m an only child! She has, let’s see… three (I think three) step-brothers, one half brother and one half sister.
I got a kick out of filling out this survey because in my head, I was filling it out for three people. Although I wouldn’t exactly call that official yet. But unofficially… well, it seems we are more polyamorous than we had anticipated. More on that to come. :)
