Together, let's unravel the mystery of the world's greatest kitty supermodel!

Together, let’s unravel the mystery of the world’s greatest kitty supermodel!

I’m looking for questions to ask on my upcoming exclusive Q&A interview with acclaimed kitty supermodel Tabs! This is a huge opportunity for me, and I could really use your help coming up with the questions. :)

What should I ask?

Should I ask him about his plans for retirement, how he built his kitty modeling empire, how he tightlines his eyes without opposable thumbs or how he feels about crows?

The sky’s the limit.

Leave me your question ideas here in the comments, and I’ll try to squeeze them in during the interview later this week.

Thanks for your help!

Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 345

Published in: Just For Fun

Nothing says I love you like a bowl of ramen. (This was my dinner on Saturday night! I hung out with Jen and Cindy.)

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.

  1. Have you ever seen someone who looks just like you?
    Not on the street, no, but several people have told me that they’ve seen my twin. She, or they, are out there… It’s only a matter of time before we find each other, and the plot against us unfolds.
  2. I don’t care. You couldn’t pay me enough to __________.
    Be on that show, Fear Factor (is that still on?). I just remember seeing a clip with a woman stuck in a box filled with a billion worms. That’s literally my nightmare. Literally.
  3. Would you want to be a werewolf?
    No…because Tabs would be afraid of me. :(
  4. What’s something in your life you had to fight for?
    To have a life where I was the one actually driving the car and making the decisions, because my parents had a plan for me all laid out, which was to go to medical school, even though that was the last thing in the world I wanted.

    I think some of it was a cultural thing, and my parents were just trying to help, but I had to learn how to speak up for myself and fight for the things I wanted.

  5. How do you feel about green eye shadow?
    I wear it all the time, but only specific shades of green. Khaki greens, golden olive greens. I rarely wear bright kelly greens or neon greens because I feel like I’m of a certain age and can’t pull them off anymore…but olive greens and khaki greens are cool.

Le List

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 who looks just like you?
2. I don’t care. You couldn’t pay me enough to __________.
3. Would you want to be a werewolf?
4. What’s something in your life you had to fight for?
5. How do you feel about green eye shadow?

“It’s like something out of The Godfather.” How often do you hear that? Well, I heard it yesterday, as a matter of fact, on a street corner in the Mission district in San Francisco. There’s always something going on in that part of the city.

I was there with El Hub to meet one of his friends for lunch, and there was this big procession with a marching band right on the street in front of a beautiful old church.

One of the things I love about San Francisco. :)

Happy Monday, my friend. I hope you have an easy day today. I’m not really in the mood for difficulty, if you know what I mean. I want to coast…

Your nephew says “mrow,” by the way.

If you’ve ever wanted an inside look at what it’s like to live with a kitty supermodel…

The day always starts with snacks, because if you’re gonna do work — good work — you gotta have the right fuel.

After breakfast, meditation outside on the deck…

And some light gardening…

7 Ways to Win a $50 eGift Card From Sephora! (Ends Monday)

 Win a $50 Sephora e-gift card

Win a $50 Sephora e-gift card

Greetings and good morning! Happy caturday/post-Haloween! :)

So, I learned two valuable lessons last night…

First, I learned that tiaras should be worn much more often than once a year, and second, I learned that Jakey-poo can look like a total psycho, and I know this because I saw Nightcrawler last night, which I liked, but yeah, it’s intense and disturbing. Jake plays a lowlife Los Angeles petty criminal (with more than a few screws loose) who realizes that he has a penchant for driving muscle cars and filming violent news.

Seemed appropriate for Halloween…

When we got home, I needed to soothe my soul, so some Gilmore Girls.

In other news, no trick-or-treaters for me. :( They may have stopped by while we were at the movie, but on the bright side, now I have a tub filled with candy.

I hope you did something fun last night. Did you stay in or go out?

If Your Pets Could Talk, What Would They Say About Your Sense of Style?

Published in: Just For Fun

Anthropologie Panthere Dress with Halogen Katrina Booties

A talking Tabs would have plenty to say about this subject.

First, he’d voice his strong displeasure about my penchant for stretchy pants, and then call Karl Lagerfeld on his iPhone to vent. “The leggings in her closet are multiplying exponentially! Something must be done!”

I’m sorry, Tabs, it’s not my fault that the Zella Live-In Leggings are, in fact, so comfortable that I really do want to live in them. :)

Next, he’d give me grief about my footwear choices. In particular, these boots, which he attacks every time I wear them (I think that he thinks they’re cats making a move on his territory).

Then, after listing all of the many fashion faux pas I commit on a daily basis, he would hopefully give me a little props for the kitty-themed clothing in my closet.
