AN INTERVIEW WITH STEFAN THOMAS VAN DE GRAAFF

January 30, 2015


I know a lot of you are thinking, "Who is this cute blond boy in all of Erin's pictures? I think his name is Stefan, but I'm not sure how to pronounce it and I don't know much about him." To all of you I say, welcome to this interview with my husband Stefan! (Stef-in) The other day I was creeping around a bunch of blogs written by people I don't know, and I read one post where a girl interviewed her husband and it was so funny. So here we go, maybe this will be funny too. It probably will be to me, at least.

Describe marriage in one word and don't say "hard."
(He took forever to answer this.) So, you mean like.. difficult? ... Fun.

What is the most pointless social norm?
That conversation when you're passing someone you know: "Hey, how are ya? Good." The Dutch hate that.

What do you like most about living with me?
I like that things get done. But it's also just nice to come home to someone who cares about you.

What is the weirdest thing about me?
Your sleeping decompression routine. You twitch everywhere from toe to head, step by step, joint by joint. Everything has to twitch before you're ready to fall asleep. Even your jaw. *chomp chomp sound* 

Who is your celebrity crush?
You just want me to say Ryan Gosling. But, Emma Watson. Duh.

What exotic pet would you like to have?
A lemur. They're just cute. And, Zoboomafoo.

What is your biggest pet peeve?
When people don't pull into the intersection when they're turning left. Among other things.

What is the best movie of all time?
That's an impossible question, first of all. Second of all, Lars and the Real Girl. (Later: Add this to the Lars and the Real Girl one. "Ask me about it sometime." Because I like to talk about why it's so good.)

What is the most underrated movie?
Stranger Than Fiction. And Baby Geniuses. Just kidding.

Describe your perfect day.
I wake up at six in the morning, and I'm not tired. I do a crossword, or three. I eat at Walker Brothers. Then I do something active. Probably just some sort of sport. I shower, then I eat a chicken caesar salad for lunch. I read a book, probably The Godfather. Erin and I go to Clue Quest in London. We eat burgers for dinner. Then we go to a concert, it's probably The Brocks. We get home and go to bed. Thirty minutes later we go to sleep.

My husband, ladies and gentlemen.

Fun post especially the information about your decompression routine which sounds a little odd but also very effective. Can I submit questions for you to ask the "cute blond boy" like 'What do you think of Facebook and have you ever used it to meet strangers?'

I have the same pet peeve. When we moved here to Idaho I noticed NO ONE pulled out for a left turn. I was always so annoyed. Just recently our friend was pulled over and given a ticket for pulling out into the intersection for a left turn. Apparently it's not allowed here in good old Idaho.

Hm, great question! I'll have to include it in the next interview.

No way! I really thought that was allowed everywhere. Well safe to say Stefan will never let us live in Idaho once he hears about that! haha
