C&C have been busy. We’ve also been sucked into the world of Facebook. Hence, no new posts for a while. Today, we’d thought we’d bring something from Facebook to our blog. One of the most recent memes on FB has been “16 things” where you write 16 things about yourself. The idea is to put some on there that people wouldn’t already know. Both C and C did this on FB.

Here we present our shared list.
16 things about C & C.

1. We both like job interviews. (We’re very good at them, so that might explain it. Or maybe we’re very good at them because we like ’em.)

2. We were both born in America’s Dairyland. (Cheeseheads by birthright.)

3. We both love holidays. (This has dimmed somewhat these past few years, but we hold out hope that this fire will be rekindled as our lives get less limbo-like.)

4. C & C are both organizationally challenged. (To be fair, C’s desk at work is neat as a pin. C’s is a disaster area in need of a purging not unlike the vast fires that used to sweep across the American plains.)

5. C & C are apple folks. (Both the fruit and the computers.)

6. C & C have been in two weddings together. (Yes, I’m counting ours as one of them. Of the two, our wedding was 100x more fun.)

7. C & C celebrate Boxing Day. (It is a day dedicated to being with one another. We do not leave the house. We do not answer the phone. We pamper ourselves. No work. No family. No friends. Just us. It is a glorious day.)

8. Both of us have a thing for teddy bears. (and, apparently, rubber duckies.)

9. Both C and C realized they wanted to marry this person when they were in Door County, WI. (Different moments, but same weekend.)

10. C & C both have been known to write poetry. (C’s is better, though.)

11. C & C do not like dark chocolate, liver, brussels sprouts, or cigarette smoke. (Together we aren’t as fussy as people seem to make us out to be. Or, I guess, if you added in all of our individual dislikes… never mind. Forget I said anything.)

12. C & C prefer feather pillows. (Lots of them. No, really, more than that…)

13. C & C think the first snow fall is special. If we are apart when it happens, we call each other to make sure we both see it. (If we are together for the first snow fall, we go out and dance in it.)

14. C & C are sneaky elves. We’ve put up a Christmas tree in the backyard of the ‘rents at 2 am. We’ve built a snowamn on a friend’s front porch. And we’ve done other things we haven’t even been suspected of yet. (Tee Hee.)

15. C & C have delicate constitutions. (Sad, but true. We also can’t hold our liquor.)

16. C & C have very high standards for friends. (Surprisingly, we’ve met a lot of people who live up to those standards. We are constantly amazed by this.)
