You might be wondering, “So what in tarnation is this Monday Poll thing anyway!?”
Well, it isn’t exactly a poll. It’s more of a constantly evolving (devolving?), somewhat random list of questions I’ve been putting out to readers every Monday morning for the past seven years. (It’s like a kickstart for your brain.) I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
- Have you ever seen someone in real life who looks like they could be your twin/doppelgänger?
I wish! And if I did, I would definitely take a twinsies selfie of us with my phone.
Someday, it’ll happen…and it will be awesome. Hopefully she’ll be a cat lady, too.
Sometimes I will hear that I look like somebody’s sister or aunt or mom, or like Reese Witherspoon, which I take as a total compliment because I think she’s adorable.
- What do you think of the new Apple Watch, and would you wear it?
Gurl, I walked by the Apple Store yesterday (on my way to the Chanel counter), and I didn’t even want to go inside and take a look. I just… I have my good ‘ol watch with, like, the dial and the two little hands, and that’s all I need.
I just feel like I already carry my phone with me all over the place, and I don’t really need a smart watch to tell me what’s already on my phone.
- Sometimes when I open my mouth…
…crazy cat lady stuff comes out.
VERY crazy cat lady stuff — so crazy that even I’m surprised I say it, like, “It’s kitten season!” which I say every single time we drive by the Marin County Humane Society.
El Hub is so sick of hearing it. He’ll say, “Sweetie! Every season is kitten season!”
And I’ll just nod. “I know.”
- Do you see yourself as more of a bohemian, or a glamour gal?
This one’s tough because I like the relaxed ease of the bohemian look, but I don’t really feel like it’s 100% me…because I’m not all that relaxed. I definitely see myself as more of a glamour gal. I feel more comfortable when I’m a little more dressed up and put together. I think that’s more my style.
- What do you typically wear to work?
Well, here at Tabs the Cat Industries LLC, the dress code is very strict (not really). Although it’s tempting to wear workout clothes all the time, mostly I dress as though I’m going to a regular office. It just helps get me in the mindset of what I’m gonna do for the day, so I guess you could call it business casual. Right now I’m wearing a cute pair of chambray scalloped shorts and a kind of secretary-ish sleeveless blouse because it’s supposed to be hot here today.
Your turn. Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ‘em!
1. Have you ever seen someone in real life who looks like they could be your twin/doppelgänger?
2. What do you think of the new Apple Watch, and would you wear it?
3. Sometimes when I open my mouth…
4. Do you see yourself as more of a bohemian, or a glamour gal?
5. What do you typically wear to work?
Hi, friend. This is random, but do you want some cilantro? My little deck garden is slowly but surely coming along, and my cilantro plant is by far dominating all of the other herbs.
So cilantro is in the house.
I hope you’re doing well today. I’m feeling much better — like, emotionally. I know that sounds goofy, but it’s true (thank you again for your kindness and support).
I’ve been making a lot of headway on Operation Get Your Sh*t Together. I did a bunch of things that I’ve been wanting to do but just haven’t done, like I removed a tall, narrow bookshelf that wasn’t much help, moved my desk to a different side of the room, and I ordered this HUGE behemoth of a shelving system.
This is probably gonna sound crazy…but it’s pink.
And it’s made out of stainless steel.
So, I don’t know if it exactly reads “office chic,” but I found it on Amazon, and it’s not crazy expensive. Hopefully it alleviates some of my storage issues.
Anyway, enough about that! Have a great day today, and I’ll talk to you soon.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
