Which One? A meme

The latest meme floating around the blogosphere caught my eye, and I never can resist a good meme, so here goes.

Who's older?
Ron is, by a few years.

Who was interested first?
I was. For me it was lust at first sight. Ron wasn't at all keen on me, but gradually he came around and saw something special about me. It took about four years.

Same high school?
We grew up in different provinces, so we went to different high schools. We attended the same university, although at different times.

More sensitive?
I am, I think.

Worse temper?
Definitely Ron. I can keep calm and carry on, but Ron is usually unable to control his temper.

More social?
Neither of us is at all social, but I regularly interact with other people more often than Ron.

More stubborn?
Ron.

Wakes up first?

I always do, to let the dogs out. Ron enjoys another three hours of sleep, while I use the time for blogging and email.

Bigger family?
That depends on how you define 'family'. If you count living parents, siblings and children, then our families are exactly the same size.

Flowers?
I like to have flowers in the house, but Ron thinks it's a shame to cut them. He prefers to leave them in the garden.

Who cooks the most?
We both cook but I prepare more meals.

Cries more?
Neither of us does much of that.

Said I love you first?
Ron said it to me.

Better singer?
I am. I've never heard Ron sing; not even "Happy Birthday" at family parties. I've always been a member of one choir or another.

Better driver?
Ron thinks he is. I am more careful but Ron doesn't think women can be good drivers.

Hogs the remote?
I do when we watch DVDs or recorded programs on the PVR, because Ron isn't sure how to operate the remotes. He can turn the tv on and off, but that's about it. Even then, he sometimes calls for help when he pushes the wrong button and turns off the satellite by mistake.

Better cook?
I think I am, because I experiment more. Ron cooks delicious meals but never strays from the printed recipe, while I make changes depending on what is on hand. We both enjoy trying new recipes.

Clothes And shoe hoarder?
I have plenty of clothes, but I follow the 'one in, one out' rule and give away an item when I buy a new one. Ron hangs on to his old clothes, but then he doesn't shop for new things.

And there you have it!

Love reading your answers. Sounds like Ron and Nick have the same singing voice, I've never, ever heard Nick sing even happy birthday either.

Who's older?
Me by 17 years!

Who was interested first?
Hard to say.

Same high school?
Not even the same country..

More sensitive?
I am on most things, but there are a few areas where Rosa is more sensitive than me.

Worse temper?
Depends.

More social?
I think people would say I am, but Rosa is social as well.

More stubborn?
Equally stubborn, which is why we employ DD.

Wakes up first?
Rosa

Bigger family?
Rosa

Flowers?
I like them much more than Rosa but Rosa loves flowerless plants like succulents very much. Our garden and collection of indoor plants are pretty expansive.

Who cooks the most?
Me

Cries more?
Rosa, but I'll only cry at a movie and that astounds her.

Said I love you first?
I think I did, but it was pretty mutual.

Better singer?
Neither. We could make a lot of money singing if we charged people to have us stop.

Better driver?
I am.

Hogs the remote?
neither

Better cook?
I am more diverse but Rosa cooks things I could never do as well.

Clothes And shoe hoarder?
Neither of us are clothes-horses.

Love reading these answers. Laughed at the last one about new clothes, if it wasn't for me Ray would never have a new thing. lol

I love these kind of memes! It would be fun if Ron answered also to see how close he is to yours.

Hugs and blessings...Cat

Minelle Labraun said...

This was nice Hermione. I am awful with clothes and lots of things. Way too much!
Like your idea of one in one out.... I'd never do it like that....

lindy thomas said...

Lovely answers Hermione. Must follow you one in one out theory. I have way too many clothes and hate departing with 'old friends'.

Hugs Lindy xx

Hermione said...

PK - My guess is some men are just too inhibited to sing.

kdpierre - That's a great set of responses!

Leigh - We need to keep our men suitably clothed :)

Liza - I guess I could try him with it.

Ronnie - Thank you.

Cat - I enjoy it too.

Minelle - My rule is, if I haven't worn it in a year, out it goes (with certain exceptions).

Lindy - Think of it as blessing someone else with your 'old friends'.

Hugs,
Hermione

Catching up here, Hermione. I love reading memes, thanks for sharing a glimpse of your life.
I couldn't practise the one in one out regime, I'm an inveterate hoarder.
