A meme about us

I saw this meme somewhere and thought it was cute.  A little info about me and BT.

1. What are your middle names?
Kay for me and Thomas for BT

2. How long have you been together?
11 1/2 years, married for 5 1/2

3. How long did you know each other before you started dating?
About 3 weeks I said.  It's hard to say exactly because time moved differently back when I was in college.  It was less regimental.

4. Who asked who out?
I made BT ask him by saying So are we ever going to do something other than hang out here? (at our friends' apartment) and then we went and playing mini-golf later that week.

5. How old are each of you?
Both 31. My birthday is about 6 weeks before his.

6. Did you go to the same school?
Sort of yes, we attended the same undergraduate school that I graduated from for a little while, but he moved on to 2 other universities before finishing his degree.  Then I went to grad school where he got his bachelors.

7. Are you from the same home town?
No.  He is originally from MA and we both moved to different cities in LA when we were 13 before meeting at college.

8. Who is the smartest?
Equal but in different ways.  He is really good with math and science and I am very language oriented.

Two.  I've told BT that it's either 2 kids or 2 pregnancies.  So now that we have one, we can only have one more.

14. Who does the cooking?
BT because he is excellent at it.  Me, not so much.

15. Who is more social?
BT who is much more comfortable talking to people.  I don't do well with small talk.

28. Who's better with the computer?

29. Who drives when you are together?
Usually him especially since he got his new car.

Our wedding song was "When you say nothing at all" but I'd say that Nina Gordon's "Tonight and the Rest of your life" is a little closer to what it should be.
