You Asked, We Answered: Part 2

Since we couldn’t cram all of your questions into last week’s video, we’re bringing you the follow-up where we’re tackling more funny and random personal questions that were submitted before last week’s big blogiversary extravaganza by our curious readers via Twitter and Facebook. We’re basically back to answer a few more of those quirky queries that had us laughing and cringing as the camera rolled (“what was your first thought when you first saw your house?”, “what chore don’t you trust the other person to do?”, “when do you guys get a chance to work out?”, “does Sherry wear her pajamas all day since she works from home?”). And this time I promise Sherry controls that potty mouth of hers a little bit better (see what we mean by watching Part 1). And enjoy Part 2 below on Vimeo or over here on YouTube.

Oh, and for those who can’t watch the video, here’s a quick recap of what we cover:

  • I don’t trust Sherry to load the dishwasher (a total surprise to her) or mow the lawn, she’d rather I not do toilets and prune things. I think I can agree with that.
  • We think we discovered our true “Petersik Style” a few months into blogging, once we refined our home’s color palette.
  • Sherry’s interest in home decor definitely spurred mine, but I’ve always taken an interest in design and enjoyed flexing my creative muscles.
  • Sherry’s looks can be attributed to a combo of DNA, make-up and lots of photoshop.
  • We’re a one-car household and we drive a Nissan Maxima now, but dream of getting a used Honda Element (if I had my way) or a used Nissan Rogue (the ride Sherry and I actually agree on). And somehow I make Sherry think she’s pregnant in this answer.
  • We use our living/dining room to entertain (and eat the occasional sloppy dinner that might ruin the couch in the den), but other than that, Burger’s the main occupant of that room (he likes to sit on the back of the couch and gaze out the window).
  • Sherry likes to credit our punny writing style to her copywriting background, but I reveal that we really have our weird dads’ senses of humor to thank. Shout out to Tom and Ken.
  • We usually read blogs or magazines, but when we crack open a book it’s either pink-covered chick lit (Sherry) or nerdish non-fiction (me and sometimes Sherry too).
  • Sherry’s first impression of our house was “we have to have it” and mine was “that’s A LOT of yard work.”
  • Even though she works from home, Sherry manages to change out of her pajamas 99% of the time – but still misses the old days in NYC when she got all gussied up for work and tottered around in 4″ heels (I had no idea she was 5’2″ for the longest time).
  • We decided to get a chihuahua because I wanted a cat, but Sherry’s allergic. Hence our cat-sized dog, Burger – whose manageable size makes him a breeze to travel with.
  • Sherry only runs when being chased (working out just isn’t her thing), but does go on long walks with Burger (in addition to banging out all of those sweat-inducing home improvement projects). I’m a runner and I go on my lunch breaks.

We know there are probably still questions out there, so feel free to hit us up with more. After all, we’re Talky McTalkersons when you get us going. We can’t promise they’ll all be addressed in another video, but you know we hate to leave any question unanswered…

Click here for Part 1 of our Q & A video series, where we tackle things like “when will you have kids for crying out loud?” and “when are you getting your own TV show?”

    Thanks for the recap! That’s a good compromise for those of us that can’t watch it vs. the extra fun for those that can.

  4. Katie says

    Thank you for the video synopsis!! It probably just adds to the heap of trabajo you guys have to do but it’s a great compromise for those of us who can’t (or maybe just shouldn’t) watch at work. I always feel so unsatisfied when you put up a video and I can’t watch it, but now I feel like I went to the party too!! As always, great work YHL!

  5. Jenet says

    Thanks for sharing! Love it! And thanks for spelling it out for those of us that can’t quite watch the video at the moment…

  6. says

    Love the video!
    As the question came up about favorite books, I was thinking of mine and how I really liked The Outliers. Great minds think alike!

    PS: I love Burger!

  7. says

    You guys are the best! Thank you so much for following through on posting a synopsis! You did way more than I envisioned when I suggested it, but I appreciate it so much! And I’m glad to see others are digging it too! (SO many exclamation points!)

  8. says

    Fun stuff, guys! :) Loved the corny octopus joke. But, I think my favorite part John’s impersonation of puppy Burger. Priceless.

    Oh, and by the way, my 60 year old in-laws drive an Element ;)
