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.
- Your favorite frozen treat?
All of them! My sweet tooth fiends for the frozen stuff like ice cream, ice cream cake, gelato, etc.
It’s hard to narrow it down, but right now I’m all about Three Twins Salted Caramel Ice Cream.
I also love good old-fashioned Popsicles, too, especially the red ones and the orange ones.
The purple ones, though? Forget about it. I don’t want anything to do with the purple ones…
- How are you with DIY home projects?
Not bad, I guess. I think if I had more free time I’d be decent, like I think I could probably sand and repaint a chest of drawers. I definitely do like to see household projects from start to finish, but I don’t have as much patience as I used to…
- Have you ever had to live next to noisy neighbors?
Oh, my gosh, yes! Back when El Hub and I started dating, there was a guy who lived in the apartment under mine who I called “12-year-old neighbor” because he looked and acted like a 12-year-old guy living on his own for the first time.
He did a bunch of obnoxious, inconsiderate things, but the most obnoxious things all involved noise, like he’d blast his music at all hours (the worst was early on Sunday mornings), play Halo on full blast in the middle of the night, and leave the same DVDs playing on repeat for days.
Eventually, enough people complained to the landlady that she gave him the boot.
I did a dance of joy in my living room that day.
- Sweet, sour or savory?
No too savory, for the moment, because the thought of savory food makes my tummy turn (I’ve been trying to get over a stomach bug).
- Has anyone ever read your diary?
Yeah, my mom.
When I was five my mom took me to a Hallmark store because I wanted to get a journal, so I picked out a cute one with a unicorn on the front that said, “Secrets, Dreams and Happenings.”
I wrote with abandon for weeks! Nothing too exciting, though, just your typical five-year-old kid stuff like “My brother stole my toy and I’m really mad!” and “I played outside today and had fun!”
But I thought it was the coolest thing in the world until my mom made me show it to her one day…
After that happened, I didn’t want to write in it anymore. I just didn’t feel like it was mine. Plus, I was afraid she’d read whatever I wrote and I’d get in trouble.
Your turn. Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ’em!
1. Your favorite frozen treat?
2. How are you with DIY home projects?
3. Have you ever had to live next to noisy neighbors?
4. Sweet, sour or savory?
5. Has anyone ever read your diary?
Hello, friend! Greetings from the headquarters of Tabs the Cat Industries, LLC.
I think your nephew/my kitty boss/micromanager extraordinaire currently feels the need to supervise my activities closely, because he’s sitting next to my desk in a patch of sunlight and watching me.
I’d like to think that he’s feeling extra lovie-dovie…but he probably just wants food.
I hope you had a good weekend. Believe it or not, the highlight of mine was looking for pillows, LOL!
I know that sounds weird, but I’m very picky about my pillows, and I need a new one because I’ve been sleeping on my side a lot lately. My lower back’s been super wonky, and sleeping on my side feels a little better. If you have any pillow recommendations for side-sleepers, holla! Please let me know.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
