Yay! This was a really fun TL;DR to do. We didn’t have to do any research for this one! We just joke around with each other and answer some questions at the same time. We don’t have to put up any disclaimers and worry about offending anyone! Woohoo!
Basically, we saw this random TL;DR question pop up for us to do the Couple 123 tag. I at first thought it was going to be a makeup challenge or something like that, so why would we do that for a TL;DR? But I looked into it and saw that it was just a list of questions we have to answer and guess what the other person is going to answer as well. Kind of like the Newlywed Game, I think? I’ve never seen the Newlywed Game myself. I only saw this gem online once:
Oh man that still makes me laugh.
Anyhow, yes, I’m sure we make some of you nauseated. The two of us are very much in sync with each other a lot of the time. We think the same things. We’ll hear a sound and be reminded of the same memory. We understand each other quite thoroughly. Probably because we’re with each other all the freaking time. We live together and we work together. We go out with friends together and we go shopping together. We’re barely ever apart, except for when we have to multitask, and whenever that happens we look at each other with panic in our eyes and shout “LONELY!” Christmas Shopping is the worst, because we have to surprise each other, but that means being separated while we shop, and it sucks!
Side note: I never understand why some of our friends on Kakaotalk will put us in a group chat, and send a message to both me and Martina to ask what our plans are. WHAT THE HELL?! Seriously: we’re no more than 10 meters apart from each other barely ever. If you ask one person the other person will give the same answer. DAMMIT BRENDON I’M TALKING ABOUT YOU CUT THAT OUT ALREADY.
Though we understand each other very well, and pretty much know each others answers, I think it’s clear that I know Martina better than she knows me. AMIRITE OR AMIRITE? I sometimes even know her better than she knows herself. We once played a round of Categories. Categories is when you name a category and each person has to give an answer, without repeating the previous person’s answer. So, you can do a Categories round on chocolate bars, for example, and shout “Twix!” “Three Musketeers,” etc. The point of the story is that we once played a round of Categories in which Martina picked the category: “things Martina likes.” And you know what? I WON. Mr. Thoughtful, right here! BECAUSE I NAUGHTY NAUGHTY! HAY! I’m Mr. Thoughtful! I’m the one that noticed the little patter of her “mmhmmhs” before she starts a thought as well. She was a bit self-conscious about it at first, but now she’s ok with it :D
Another thing that we wanted to talk about: I’m sure the first category stumped a lot of people, because everyone surely shouted out “Oh I know Martina’s gonna say T.O.P.” for the which celebrity would you marry. But it wasn’t! Martina here: if you couldn’t tell, I really like Dothraki Man Warrior kind of men. Not someone super buff like The Rock, but someone that looks…like a warrior dude? Not saying that TOP doesn’t look like a dude, in fact, he’s the first Korean kpop related guy that I had ever seen that looked unquestionably manly. I mistook so many kpop idols for women when I first go into kpop, but NOT TOP! His deep voice and music persona is my style, which is why Bang Yong Guk gets onto that list as well. GD, I love your music and fashion, but I couldn’t marry someone I might crush to death while making out. Hahaha *sigh* I’m a tall, curvy, athletic girl, and I need someone to match that power! A lot of kpop stars are very frail and although I can acknowledge how pretty they are, they really aren’t my style.
But when it comes to personality and looks, Johnny Depp’s a cool dude. He makes awesome movies and stays the hell out of the craziness of Hollywood. He lives in France, doesn’t he? We were under the impression that he’s so against the Hollywood lifestyle that he put an ocean between him and Hollywood. Jennifer Lawrence kinda feels like the younger female version of Johnny Depp, in that she’s an ultra mega star but isn’t consumed by it the way others are. Hollywood gives us the jibblies. Some bad jujus going on there. Buggh. So I think we just picked the least Hollywood-ish movie stars we could think of, rather than the hottest people we can think of.
Why? Because hotness totally fades. Everyone grows old and wrinkly and fat and grey. And once hotness fades, what’s left? Your personality, that’s what, and if you’ve been too consumed with celebrity lifestyle, I’d be concerned about how you’ll fare once people stop paying attention to you. Who can you be happy and old with? Who could you live happily under a bridge with if you had no money? You know, we’re kinda happy at the thought of growing old together. Seeing older couples in their 80s makes us well up with tears. We want to waddle together at an extremely slow pace. We want to watch each other change. We want to build those memories. We want…to stop being so sappy now.
One last thing, though: I didn’t get a chance to explain how Vanilla Sky shaped my perception of myself, because I realize it can sound like I lived the life of a billionaire playboy, which was really quite not the case. So here it is: Tom Cruise’s character was hideously deformed, and he had terrible self-esteem issues. A stunning whimsical and artistic girl falls in love with him anyways, for his personality rather than for his looks. Then she peels off pieces of his mask and finds a beautiful face underneath. The rest of the details of the movie didn’t really matter to me. It was that story that hit me the hardest when I saw it. And I found that in Martina. And without getting too emotional, that’s that.
Anyhow, if you had fun with this TL;DR (and we hope you did) subscribe for more TL;DRs, where people will hopefully have easy questions for us to answer! Maybe a short lightning round TL;DR, where we talk about our favourite Animes and books and Prime Numbers and stuff like that :D
