the oldlywed game!

How many times have you watched a "Newlywed Game"-style game show and thought to yourself, "Ugh, I know we could go on there and do SO much better!"?
Here's your chance!
Unlike the typical let me tell you all about my significant other survey, this one requires the participation of your one and only. Answer each question on your own first... then consult your boy to see how close to the right answer you actually were.


He's sitting in front of the TV; what is on the screen?
She says:he HATES sitting in front of the telly, so if he does happen to make his way to the lair of the television it is during 'my shows.' these include Friends, Hollyoaks and documentaries.
He says: I don't really watch TV from my own motivation. I watch things with other people because it is the only way to socialize with some of them and I like to share films and games with people I think will also like them though I get told off for talking. If it was just me then it would likely be a blank screen? That sounds terribly depressing but really I'm trying to rationalize something outside my comfort zone.

You're out to eat; what kind of dressing does he get on his salad?:
She says:
some sort of vinigrette.
He says: Vinaigrette! Olive oil/balsamic/salt/pepper.

What's one food he doesn't like?:
She says: oh gosh, hamburger helper. he LOATHES that stuff. (he apparently does not consider this food, which is why he did not answer this)
He says: I don’t like certain types of ‘envelope pushing’ seafood. From being a moderate poof with a mild dislike for large prawns to actively disliking calamari and straight up drama of rather-die-than-put-into-my-mouth things like oysters and mussels.

You go out to eat and have a drink. What drink does he order? She says: non alcoholic would be fanta and alcoholic would be some sort of bitter.
He says: Beer! Bitter.

What size shoe does he wear?:
She says: i THINK he wears 12 or 13.
He says: 12 UK, 13 US.

If he was to collect anything, what would it be?: She says: OMG! he collects anything that might have a slight possibility of coming in useful. stuff i know he would really like to collect are sound engineering equipment, ciclids and every terry pratchett and viz book in existance.
He says: Bits of metal junk, wires, components, nuts, bolts and screws. I’m a firm believer in a second male puberty which is reached once you have collected a sufficient amount of these things. Lost the nut from a bolt? Don’t panic! I have a jar full of those, what size did you need? This is Godhead. Also I have a hard time throwing away anything of a machined nature, crap like tins and threaded bars, emphasizing quality and consistency. Don’t you know this is 440F grade stainless steel? How could you throw this away!

What is his favorite type of sandwich?:
She says:
oh lord. this is hard. he loves sandwiches that involved just-opened corned beef.
He says: Toss up between a BLT and cheese and beetroot. This seems to rarely come up. I don’t make many sandwiches.

What would this person eat every day if he could?:
She says: really spicy curry.
He says: Chinese spare ribs. Holy fuck.

What is his favorite cereal?:
She says:
muesli with one pot of fruit yoghurt and a chopped-up banana in.
He says: Muesli with all the trimmings. Man does it keep you regular and it seems impossible to get bored of this. Also I feel like a real somebody eating such a classy breakfast.

What would he never wear?
She says:
a shirt that was too brightly coloured.
He says: Sandals.

What is his favorite sports team?:
She says: ha... we has no interest in sports. i will await his answer.
He says: Uh.

What is something you do that he wishes you wouldn't do?:
She says:
spend money so wildly, watch so much telly, be so random with my medication.
He says: Try to hilariously emphasize a characteristic to both entertain and amuse. When told this is highly irritating do it a thousand times harder.

You bake him a cake for his birthday; what kind of cake?
She says:
black forest gateau.
He says: Black forest gateaux! This thing is the best but must be done right. Dark chocolate. Kirshwasser. Proper bitter cherries. Anything amiss ruins it for me and therefore it is hard to actually purchase these done correctly. Making them is therefore awesome.

What could he spend hours doing?:
She says:
playing certain video games, making/recording music or reading up on one of the items on his endless list of interests.
He says: Just about anything. Reading things on the computer.
