Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, August 23

Published in: Just For Fun

  1. Mood:
  2. A little disheveled but otherwise fine. Tabs woke me up from a dead sleep twice last night, both times using my stomach as a springboard. He’s been doing it a lot lately, and I can’t lie — it’s starting to get a little played out.

  3. Are you a good typist?
  4. I think so. I took a typing class back in high school and 14 years of piano lessons. Now I type pretty well, except when it comes to the numbers… I still have to glance up at those.

  5. Favorite cupcake?
  6. Red velvet with cream cheese frosting, YUM!

  7. Do you remember how you spent your very first paycheck?
  8. I vaguely recall my parents, who are both accountants, making me frame the check.

  9. What are some of your favorite noises/sounds?
  10. Purring cats, the sound of waves gently rolling against the shore of an empty beach, accordion music, the sound of drip coffee brewing, mah jong tiles clacking against a hard table, wind rustling through the trees.

  11. A belonging you would hate to lose?
  12. The big box filled with clothes from my college years. None of it fits me anymore (I was a size 0 then), but I have lots of memories in that box (not literally, of course, ha!). As far as ever fitting into any of that stuff again, to quote my magic eight ball, “The outlook is not good.” :)

  13. What are some books you remember reading in high school?
  14. The Grapes of Wrath, which I loved, and The Scarlet Letter, which I loathed.

  15. Leopard print — hot or not?
  16. I think it’s hot, but I know that a lot of people think it’s not.

  17. Outfit:
  18. To be blunt, right now I look to’ up from the flo’ up. One word: gray. I’ve got my gray cropped yoga pants, gray roxy sweatshirt and a gray tank top. At least I’m comfortable…and ready to suddenly exercise if forced to!

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Soup, as in I’d like to prepare some homemade soup. I’d also like to fit in two 5-mile runs while remaining focussed, patient and calm every day of the week.

G’morning, and happy Monday, ladies. :) Are you ready for this?
