Don’t worry. No breakin & enterin laws were broken with the writing of this post. And I didn’t actually go inside casa de Petersik. In fact, all I did was obsessively observe when they came to visit. And then I opened the floor for a bit of nosiness to you. That’s right. I was gonna give you the low down on John and Sherry…but apparently you don’t have that many questions. BOO YOU. Either that or you don’t read my posts…in which case, I don’t blame ya.
Seriously, only Anon & Karin spoke up. So first I will answer their questions and then I will answer questions that you should have asked. That will be the fun part.
Karin – excellent inquiries. Let me be frank for a moment (you guys be Ron)…while they share some of the same qualities – they are definitely different people. I would say John is more easy going than Sherry. And Sherry is definitely more bubbly. And while they are both more stylish than me in their choices of home decor and clothing – I would say that they aren’t the kind of people who obsess over the upcoming fads and trends. From seeing them IRL – how they dress, and talk about their home, they don’t take ONLY style into account…but cost, usefulness, and longevity. Which I think is why they are so popular.
And as far as the blog goes – I saw it happen with my own two eyes. Sherry does reply to some answers (like questions about their paint colors & where to buy stuff) on her own…and gasp, use the ‘we’ instead of ‘I’. BUUUUUT, I also saw Sherry & John work together to come up with answers…four eyes are better than two (that’s what I always say!). And I saw John do a bunch of behind-the-scenes work to make sure that the comments, layout, production of posts, and some email questions were bloggerific. And no…Burger does not participate in answering questions.
Anon…this is actually more of a question for John & Sherry…but I think that the probably of me freaking them out is quite high. And yes, the thought of chaining them up in the basement and forcing them to create thousands of moodboards for my home did enter my mind…but then I reconsidered. After all, we have windows down there. If they escaped then how could they ever fall in love with me?!?
Ok – now onto the questions
I was really hoping you would ask that weren’t asked…
1. How often did they go to the bathroom? Sherry went into the bathroom twice the day she arrived, four times one day, three the other. But I only counted the times that she went downstairs…so probably increase that number by two for each day (once upon waking, once before bed). And I have no idea if she actually used the restroom…we don’t have a camera in there…that would be weird.
2. Did you sense any tension in their relationship/was John gay? The only time I sensed tension was when John was checking out Jeremy. I have no idea if John is gay but I did find a Playgirl magazine in the guestroom. Whose was it? I guess we’ll never know 🙂
3. Was Sherry a little tart? I didn’t actually taste Sherry so I have no clue. I will tell ya this tidbit of fun – the girl can talk quicker than anyone I know. But then again I do live in the south…they can make the word ‘fast’ into four syllables.
4. Was Burger actually a stuffed Taco Bell dog doll? At first I thought he might be…but no. I checked the poop in the backyard and I have never seen a doll poo something so tasty. Just checkin to see if you were still reading 🙂 Actually we loved Burger lots and lots…he loved to snuggle on the top of pillows…like a princess but with little boydoggie parts.
So there you have it…all the info you might ever need on the Petersiks. Stay tuned for a post on our fabulous new kitchen runner and how we did our duty to protect it from harm 🙂
