The MFD Files

Today's the day, mofos! MFD, my husband, agreed to let me interview him for my blog. This fills me with glee. For those of you who are totally unfamiliar with him, you can read more about him here. Thanks to Angie and Shug for giving me this interview idea.

Enjoy! My questions are bolded, his answers are under. Any commentary I have is in italics.

What's your favorite vacation that we've been on?
1. EPCOT September 2011; 2. Castaway Cay September 2012;
3. St. Maarten, the stop on the Disney cruise on September 25, 2012 (our second anniversary 4. Disney Cruise September 2012
Where would you go on your dream vacation?
Africa or somewhere in the Middle East with a lot of ancient history I once had a farm in Africa, at the foot of the Ngong Hills...

What's the craziest thing you've done in your life?           
HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! Good one! That can not be determined! This cannot be determined most likely because MFD has done SO MUCH crazy shit in his life that he can't possibly choose a favorite. Hell, I can't choose a favorite. 

If this house caught on fire and you could only grab three things (not me or the dogs), what would they be?
My iphone, laptop, work bags so I can still work!

Who's your favorite celebrity? 
Right now, Sweet Brown! Aw, hell. Ain't nobody got time fo dat. I came home on Monday to him singing that to himself. 

Your least favorite celebrity? 
Right now, Taylor Swift and PSY and the Fruit Loop Nicki Minaj. AMEN to TSwift and NMinaj.

As a kid, which TV characters did you have a crush on? 
Hello... Alyssa Milano... 

What’s the most important political issue facing this country today? 
Voter disenfranchisement

If you weren’t a realtor, what would your ideal job be? 
Mate on a tuna boat

When did you know you wanted to marry me? 
around 2005 Thank you for being so specific. Remember when we were planning a trip to go to Ireland in 2006? I was going to ask you there. But then we didn't go to Ireland. We went to Key West instead.

1. On the boardwalk in Ocean City, NJ, the day before our wedding. 2. Our wedding day 
What do you like about me? 
Your laugh, your ability to organize everything, and I mean everything... your smile, your eyes, your delicious food, your patience, your understanding, your ability to give, your family, your awesome writing skills, the fact you turned into a dog person quite easily, but Gus has that effect! It's true. I loved Gus immediately, as soon as we got him, and he built my tolerance and like for other people's dogs. 

What do you dislike about me? 
hmmm.... your difficulty in letting bygones be bygones... I asked for clarification. He means that once I cross over into actually disliking someone, I'm done with them. When you're out, you're out. He doesn't have that in him, to cut people out. I do. Snip snip.

What do you like about us together?
We're like two old souls. And we're comfortable.

What word first comes to mind when asked to describe me? 

What word first comes to mind when asked to describe yourself? 
Jovial The man wakes up whistling. Totally my opposite. 

What five things would you want with you if you were stranded on an island?
Gus and Jake (Strike that, they would suffer, that was selfish), a flint, water distillation device, the bible, pepper and a knife (preferably a large knife). What is a flint? Is that how you start fire? That question probably makes it obvious why I am not a choice for island companionship. There's a person who would survive on an island in this relationship, and it's not me. 

What's your favorite cartoon character? 
Old school - Tom & Jerry. Today - Roger the alien from American Dad.

Who are your five favorite movie characters? 
William Wallace, Han Solo, Darth Vader, Neo, Jason Bourne We've had so many fights over me yelling NO MATRIX! NO MATRIX! And he downloaded The Imperial March (Darth Vader's march) to be my personalized ring tone on his phone. Ha ha ha fitting.

What’s your favorite song to play with stringband? And with Hank? 
Stingband, I would say Over the Waves or Swanee, with Hank, Cherry, Cherry by Neil Diamond.

Do you believe in vampires? 
Not any more... Stupid chick flicks ruined the mystique

If you could have dinner with any five people alive or dead, who would they be? 
Clinton, George Clooney, Sinatra, JFK and Uncle Si

What are some songs that make you think of me? 
Glassblowers Daughter, (duh), Just the Way You Are, anything Counting Crows or Bruce!!!

We won the lottery! What are your first five purchases? 
1. House down the shore yes
2. A new car 
3. House in Florida (or on an island in USVI) USVI please
4. A large large vacant lot in Point Breeze What is Point Breeze? Lower Graduate Hospital For those not from Philly, it's an area in Philly. 
5. A multi-unit building in CC (Center City, Philadelphia)

That's all he wrote.

Have a great Tuesday! Even though Tuesdays always suck.

Linking up with Helene, Emily, and Sarah for TMAIT.

  1. HA! I loved this! I think I need to ask the Mr some of these questions! =)

  2. I think Sweet Brown is hilarious!

  3. Awww, I'm kinda crushing on MFD a little bit! I kid, I kid! But, reading this made my heart happy. I've never met either of you (although apparently saw MFD perform in 'The Pajama Game' way back when) but I can just tell that you two are perfect for each other in an imperfect way. If that makes any sense. And at 12:35am, it may not... don't judge me.


  4. Haha this was hilarious! I love getting to know blog friends' other halves. He was such a good sport, too!

    If you guys win the lottery, ill take a house in the Virgin Islands as well. Just sayin.

  5. I always love the questionaires! But I gotta say, I can't stand Tswift but her new CD is so dang good, can't even help loving it.

    Stopping by from Tell Me About it Tuesday blog hop!

  6. Excellent interview!


    And thank you very much... that stupid Taylor Swift song is swimming in my head now!

    1. We didn't adopt Geege until he was three or four. Gus schooled us in the art of dog love first!

  7. Ah, yes, Steph, you did not like Striker, thought him to be a nuisance.
    Gussie changed that.
    This interview makes my heart happy, too.

    Love you both to infinity and beyond!!!
    Your MOMMA!

  8. hahaha this is awesome. "The fruit loop nicki minaj" yes. agreed. y'all seem like a great couple and he's a great catch. i love that y'all are 2 old souls. and I love the 5 people to have dinner with. some of those are on my list too.

  9. Love this, I'll have to do it someday. I totally remember when you two were going to go to Ireland. Funny that he didn't actually ask you until 4 years later! ;)
