2-4-1 Special This Week

It's a good thing Jennine decided to come out of hiding, because it's awfully hard to write a co-authored post without a blog partner.

That being said, we decided to team up again this week for something we're going to call this time...

Two-for-One Tuesday!

What is your favorite TV show or movie?

Jennine: Pride and Prejudice, without question. It appeals to every molecule of estrogen in my body. In fact, I ovulate every time I watch it. Mr. Darcy is my Jessica Alba.

I'm just sayin'.

Jeff: One movie I really liked a lot was Primal Fear with Edward Norton. It was suspenseful, creepy and cool all at the same time. Edward pretty much kicks ass in this one. And this was only his second movie at the time!

I don't get a chance to watch much TV - but I never miss Jon Stewart.

What is the best gift a man can give to a woman?

Three simple words: You're right, Dear.

I'm thinking some kind of no-kids-girls-only weekend spa retreat. I'm pretty sure that would score me some brownie points for, oh - the rest of my life.

What is the best gift a woman can give to a man?

Jennine: Exclusive ownership of the remote control.

Jeff: News that your woman has been secretly taking pole dancing lessons and now wants to show you what she's learned while wearing "all the neat stuff" she just bought at Victoria's Secret.

What is your idea of a perfect date?

Jennine: Not too large, not too small, sun dried until slightly wrinkled.

Jeff: I imagine it starting with a limo arriving at our house. Then me escorting our kids to the limo so it can take them away to somebody else's house. After that it doesn't matter what we do.

What is your idea of a good time out with your friends?

Jennine: I have found that it is much more fun to stay in with my friends. For example, conference calls are the best way to have "OMG I'm doubled over in laughter" moments. And you can't eat brownie batter with your girlfriends when you're out and about.

Jeff: I'm a big fan of hanging out at someone's house (mostly someone else's) and just yucking it up playing cards, spoons or impossible trivia games.

What makes you feel better when you're sad or depressed?

Jennine: Usually doing something nice for someone else gets me out of a funk. Unless I'm in a "I hate people" mood. Then I just drive around smashing mailboxes with a baseball bat. That works, too.

Almost always - my wife.

If you could buy any car, what would it be?

Jennine: Actually, I want a motorcycle from Orange County Choppers. And I want Mikey to build it.

Jeff: Well for sure not this hideous Dodge Magnum thing I just rented today.

They were all out of the cool middle-aged-crisis cars so I got stuck with this mutant cartruckstationwagon lab experiment instead. To answer the question though, I would definitely buy some kind of hybrid car. Or better yet - a total electric car if I had a choice.

I want an OCC bike too, but I want Vinnie & Rick to build mine!

Primal Fear was Edward Norton's very first movie AND he was nominated for his first Oscar for it.

Jeff and Charli Lee said...

Anon - Thanks for the clarification. I was fooled by the IMDb reference to this comedy film Only In America which is apparently some kind of English language training/comedy/film whatever.

Question on the pole dancing thing: What's the appropriate gratuity in that situation?

Mom Thumb said...

I think given what age and gravity have done to my once fit body, my husband would probably pay me NOT to pole dance!

LOVE Primal Fear, love it.

and oh boy am I really wishing I had something wittier to add...

but Momma said...

Ya'll are a HOOT!

Jennine, I was worried about your perfect date until my slow brain caught up with your quick wit, love your pic you look like you could have a sitcom.

HM, Pole Dancing. Thanks for keepin it real. :)

Kelly said...

My two year old goes around the house yelling that mikey rules.

Limo for the kids is a genius idea! I wonder if they will keep them for the whole weekend???

Heather said...

As usual, you two make me laugh.

But I think the Magnum isn't that bad looking. Not nearly as bad as the Avalanche or the Aztec.

I'm just sayin'.

Gale said...

I want more of Jennine. I like the humor, mmmm not to say the lovely harmonica man isn't funny. Its a different type that appeals to me as well. Keep up the good work.

O.K., first off, Jennine, you're idea of the perfect date could be so misunderstood. Just reading the description is so, well, uh, ....I'm just saying....

Secondly, now I understand my mailbox situation.

I'm wondering, Jennine, if you have chosen a chopper made from Mikey, doesn't that beg the question "how many molecules of estrogen are there in your body to be appealed to anyway?"

Jeff, no question, Primal Fear is an awesome movie!!! You just have to love a psychological thriller with a fantastic twist!

As for the pole dancing, I certainly hope you're talking about some solstice dancing ritual that has to do with the north pole. Because it just so happens that I HAVE been secretly taking lessons for that. I can't wait to tell my husband!!

Dang, I hate it when I have grammar errors.

not you're, but your!

Jess Riley said...

This was great. I think you've got a winning formula here.

"I ovulate every time I watch it." Ha! And yes, that Dodge Magnum IS hideous.

yellojkt said...

The perfect answer is just hilarious. And I'm disappointed the Magnum is so crappy because they look so cool.

yoo hoo said...

All my dates come in a box. ba da bump

Or they used to, I'm married now. Bigger box!

Anonymous said...

Ha! Best thing I've read all week.

Mailboxes with a baseball bat. Jennine - call me.

Bugwit said...

Hilarious! You two rock. When does the radio show start?

Kal said...

HM: Check out this baby. 100% electric, and 0-60 in under 4 seconds...

Geeks can be cool too...
