Because he asked MeMe so nicely...

Mr. Earth was very upset when he found out that there was a meme going around the blogosphere about our better halves. I think his actual words were: "Why aren't you writing about how great I am? Where's the love? Love me!". So, to that end, I'd like to introduce Mr. Earth:

His age: 34

How tall is he: 6'1

How long have you been together (married): 5 years in May 2007

How long did you know each other before you got together?: Started dating about 2 months after we met and dated 4 years before getting married.

What physical features attracted you to him first?: He has sexy, long, lean legs. He should be a runner.

Eye color: Blue or Green depending on his mood, or his shirt.

Hair color: Somewhere between brown and blonde - what is that colour called?

Hair style: Short. But he would like to grow it long, Jesus-style.

Normal Outfit: Slacks, button-down shirt (tucked in), dress shoes. He would look nerdy if he wasn't so cool.

How did you meet: We met in a production of Godspell. He was the policeman and I was the prostitute. It was fate.

How serious is it: I'm hoping it's pretty frackin' serious, or someone's in big trouble.

Are you "in love": Duh, obviously! Although we are best friends, too, and sometimes that's even better.

Do your parents like him: Well, they took us on a trip to Italy with them, so yes. Actually, on that particular trip, they insinuated that they would rather have Mr Earth there than me. Long story.

Do his parents like you: Hard to tell. His mother is British and rather non-demonstrative. His father is mercurial, and it could go either way.

Do you trust him: With my life.

Would you share a toothbrush with him?: Yuck! No thank you.

Would he let you wear his pants?: Sure, but I doubt they'd fit. He's very tall and a lot thinner than I am.

Do you have a shirt of his that you sleep in?: No, but I have worn a shirt of his when I was preggo. That was nice.

Do you like the way he smells?: Usually. When he wears cologne, absolutely. Purrrrrr.

Can you picture having kids with him?: Too late to ask this, but yes. Actually, one of the nicest parts of his proposal was that he said he wanted me to be the mother of his children. Sounds hokey, but it really worked in the moment. Mr Earth is a master of phrasology.

What bothers you the most about him?: He has a nasty habit of repeating the question you just asked v e r y s l o w l y. And not actually answering the question. He thinks it's funny. It's
v e r y a n n o y i n g.

Does he have a temper?: He's pretty easygoing. I'm the hot potato in this duo.

Are you happy to be with him?: Yes.

Does he embarrass you in public?: Always, but it's very endearing and you can't help but laughing. We have a George and Gracie act going that kills at the local WalMart and Home Depot.

Does he smoke or do drugs?: No, and he wouldn't have married me if I did either. We're quite the "anti" couple, considering that many of our friends indulge.

Does he have any piercings?: No. Too George Michael for me

Any tattoos?: He would if I asked him to, but not my name. That is the Kiss of Death to all relationships.

Does he have any scars that you know of?: Gosh - you'd think I'd know the answer to this one. No??

Is he a Party dude or Stay at home?: Stay at home.

Is he Outgoing or Shy?: If you've met him once you would never ask this. Quite possibly one of the most outgoing people in existence today.

Does he love his mama?: He's a total mama's boy.

Would he hang out with you and YOUR friends?: He has on occasion, especially now that some of my friends have kids too.

Sing?: All the time. He's very good. The hard part is to get him to stop singing.

He sounds like a lot of fun. Except for the v e r y s l o w talking thing.

Mimi said...

"He was the policeman and I was the prostitute."...How fitting.

Nomotherearth. A diamond in the rough.

kittenpie said...

oh, I might steal this one... especially since I just grumped about misterpie today... It's kind of fun to meet the spoouses!

Mad Hatter said...

Yes, like Sage, I am hung up on the policeman/prostitute thing. Wowzers!

Her Bad Mother said...

You were BOTH in a production of Godspell? COOOOOL.

mamatulip said...

I love how you guys met.

ewe are here said...

Ok... I think I'm actually going to have to do this meme eventually. Because my husband really has been a major trooper throughout... ;-)
