Striking a pose with a giant elephant ear plant last week!

  1. Mood:
  2. Pretty good for a Monday. I’m a little bummed that the holidays are over, and I’m going through a wicked case of TJ’s Dark Chocolate Stars withdrawal, but otherwise I feel ready to face the day!

  3. Video games — love ‘em or hate ‘em?
  4. I love the ones I’m good at, ha! Fan of Tetris, Frozen Bubble and Bejeweled 2. I played Guitar Hero for the first time the other night and really enjoyed myself (how cool is it that you get to pick your outfit AND your guitar?). Games I don’t like tend to be ones that involve cars and/or shooting.

  5. Last thing that made you smile?
  6. These amazingly awesome Star Trek Eggo Waffles!

  7. One of your favorite sounds?
  8. Tabs purring. :)

  9. Eyes/lips/cheeks:
  10. Chanel Sparkling Satins eyeshadow quad, NARS Greek Holiday Lipgloss and Benefit Sugarbomb blush.

  11. How do you feel about leggings?
  12. Oooh, girl, I rocked them so hard circa 1987 (along with slouchy socks and Keds without the shoelaces). Now, well, not so much. I like that they’re stretchy, but these days I need clothes that hold my sh*t in, you know?

  13. Do you follow sports?
  14. Not really. At one time I followed hockey religiously, but now not so much. I do enjoy watching football and basketball playoff games, though.

  15. When I was a kid I wanted to be ______:
  16. A Vegas lounge singer, a veterinarian, a cat breeder and a fashion designer — all at once, of course.

  17. Outfit:
  18. Jeans, blue, white and gray floral long-sleeve shirt, my new favorite gray knit “Re-Run” hat from H&M. Oh, and black and pink Reef brand flip-flops.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. To continue covering my “positivity wall” at home with my favorite quotes and some of your comments and nice emails, to re-schedule (I flaked the last time) my next dental appointment, to try out a new soup recipe and to break in the new Jillian Michaels Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism DVD I got for Christmas

Rise and shine, ladies, and happy Monday! :) Have a great day. Before you enter the fray, take a sec to check in with the first Monday Poll of 2010!

    3. Last thing that made you smile?An unknown cat came up to me and meowed, and kept meowing and following me and I tried to persuade her that I was not her owner. In a busy street. I just started laughing, and all the people looking at me ‘ having a discussion’ with a cat….

    4. A favorite sound? I have to agree, my cat purring, the sound my coffee machine makes when it makes esspresso, my grandma laughing…

    • Karen says:

      When I started driving 15 years ago I didn’t like it, either. It just takes time and practice, like any skill. Do you have a trusted friend to go out and practice you? Sometimes that helps to mellow out the situation.

      • Sonja says:

        It’s not that I don’t like driving it’s that here where I live people drive like crazy (Balkan). And I doubt that any of my friends would mellow down the situation, I’m quite certain they would add to the flame haha!!
        But I’ll start, I must!!

      • Kelly says:

      How ar you liking Sugarbomb?

      • DonnaN says:

        I am loving it….I stashed all of my blushes in one mini-drawer last night while organizing, and I felt a little guilty…..they have had NO LOVE since Xmas eve…..I just can’t help myself…..it’s like Benefit got into my head and said, “What would the perfect blush color be for Donna?” and then they made Sugarbomb…..YAY!!!

      • Ruchita says:

      Funny, my BFF’s hubby plays WoW and he’s always trying to get her to join him in the name of “couples bonding time.” He’s a guild leader (?) or something like that. Apparently he takes his job very seriously!

        LOL I never would’ve believed this “couples bonding time” business until I gave in. It took him maybe a few months trying to convince me before I tried. I think I was scared about the consequences if I liked it. :P

    hi Karen!

    I also posted this at my website [ http://www.mtl2phx.com ] & linked you!

    1. Mood: Crazy happy — this is SUCH an amazing day. The official LSP launch was today, as well as a great article on LitSisters (in which I actually appear to be quite intelligent and not like the dorkus we all know I am!) and I’m back on my diet. After indulging on an hourly basis over the holidays, I’m back to my normal eating healthy regime, and planning a hardcore diet for a couple of weeks out.

    2. Video games — love ‘em or hate ‘em? I’m big fan of old school video games. I don’t play anything made later than the SNES. I don’t play often, but sometimes when the boy and I need to de-compress, we’ll crack out the old systems and play Mario Kart.

    3. Last thing that made you smile? The awesome article that came out earlier.

    4. A favorite sound? Harley’s howling. He doesn’t do it often, but when he does, it totally cracks me up.

    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: I’m on a Benefit kick – Charm school on my lids, Benetint on my lips & cheeks, and High Beam as a highlighter.

    6. How do you feel about leggings? I don’t think they’re for me. I have a pair, and they are reserved for travel days when I’m in the car for 5+ hours.

    7. Do you follow sports? Not anymore. Growing up in Montreal, Lord Stanley was a big part of life, but not anymore. I do love playing a bit, and going to baseball games in the summer.

    8. When I was a kid I wanted to be _____. A writer, of course. But in addition, a singer, marine biologist & geologist/volcanologist.

    9. Outfit: I’ve been so busy since the minute I woke up, I haven’t stopped to get dressed yet! So, plaid jammie pants and a Jedi sweater. But I’ll be changing for my meeting tonight, and I’m planning on my sunshine yellow Anthro dress, moto jacket and black flats.

    10. Weekly goals: With the launch of LSP comes a myriad of new work to do, but I want to get a few more chapters written, and wrap up the lose ends on the next LSP release, Poles Apart. [!!!exciting!!!] My only must-do is to make sure I take care of my foot injury. I have Achilles tendonitis and I need to remember to ice my ankle and try and stay off of it as much as possible. Tough to do!

    2. Video games — love ‘em or hate ‘em? I always love playing “sandbox” style games, like Elder Scrolls: Oblivion. You have quests to follow, but the world is so huge you can wander at will and do pretty much what you want. Kinda relaxing, actually!

    3. Last thing that made you smile? Talking to my mom on the phone a little while ago.

    4. A favorite sound? Cats purring is always nice. I like to listen to thunderstorms also.

    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: I actually borrowed an eyeshadow look from another reader on this blog, from when you reviewed the Urban Decay Book of Shadows II (not sure who it was.) I have Half Baked on the inner third, Homegrown on the middle lid and lower lashline, and Misdemeanor on the outer third and in the crease. I also used Mildew 24/7 liner on the upper and lower lashlines. Topped it off with Diorshow Iconic. I have NARS Orgasm blush (as usual) and MAC Queen Bee lipglass (limited edition–will cry when I run out!)

    6. How do you feel about leggings? Um, I don’t think I could pull that one off. (Horrible memories from elementary school are coursing through my head right now.)

    7. Do you follow sports? Not at all. I can’t think of a single one I like. (More bad elementary school memories! PE–ugh!)

    8. When I was a kid I wanted to be _____. Ballerina, teacher, princess. The usual.

    9. Outfit: Jeans and black/white/gray argyle print sweater.

    10. Weekly goals: Figure out a savings plan (I foresee a makeup budget in my near future!), schedule a followup with the MD (that should have been done in November…oops!), have one last splurge before all extra spending stops.

    1. Mood: Optimistic… but VERY sniffly. Damn that respiratory infection! :P

    2. Video games — love ‘em or hate ‘em? I don’t just love ‘em… I’m ADDICTED! But not for consoles, mind you; the last few console games I’ve enjoyed are Super Mario Brothers, Tetris, and Wii Bowling (haha). I’m more of a free-web gamer: Bejeweled 2, Cake Mania, and the crazy games on Miniclip and Kongregate. I also just discovered Block Breaker for the iPod Touch, too… crazy!

    3. Last thing that made you smile? Supportive emails from my family. Just went through a grueling job interview yesterday… needed to get over the shock. Also, a hilarious FB status update from my favorite hanai (extended-family) uncle, about how his morning has turned into an episode of Mr. Bean.

    4. A favorite sound? Roosters! My home town in the Philippines has tons of ‘em.

    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: Since it’s Tuesday in the Philippines right now, I’ll talk about what I did on Monday: I got a BeneFit Celebutante kit for Christmas, so I put Dallas bronzer on my cheeks (new favorite blush!) and Leggy eyeshadow all over. I followed the Celebutante instructions but used a different lipstick (because: hello germs!)

    6. How do you feel about leggings? Only if I’m wearing a super-long, extra-roomy top. Or if I’m wearing something with a long skirt, which is what I always do with my leggings to keep the chub-rub at bay. Otherwise, I’d rather have pants. (Side note: We have Topshop right here, and they have “jeggings.” Yes, jean leggings. Ew ew ew ew.)

    7. Do you follow sports? Not as much as I used to. (*cries a tear for the 2007 UH Warriors*) But if a game is on, I’ll watch.

    8. When I was a kid I wanted to be _____. A doctor. That’s what my Dad told me to say. But I also wanted to be a chef and a baseball player, too. And a princess!

    9. Outfit: Since my other job doesn’t start until next week, I’m still working my “writer’s uniform” of a T-shirt with pajama pants.

    10. Weekly goals: Start working on next week’s lesson plans for my ESL-teaching job. Get over this heinous sniffly-thing. Break in that ballroom-dancing workout video I got for Christmas. Post more on my blog. (One of my friends have been nagging me to start posting my FOTDs!) Watch Sherlock Holmes with my Dad this weekend. Take more positive thoughts to heart. :)

    2. Video games — love ‘em or hate ‘em?
    It depends. I think those ones made for kids can be great learning tools, but the ones with all the shooting and violence can be a little much. The Wii is so much fun, but I wouldn’t play enough to buy one. I used to kick serious butt at Street Fighter back in the day, though.
