Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, July 11

Published in: Just For Fun

  • You might be wondering, “So what the heck is this Monday Poll thing anyway?”
    Well, it isn’t much of a poll. It’s more just a constantly evolving (devolving?), somewhat random list of questions I’ve been putting out to readers every Monday morning for the past three years, which I guess makes this somewhere around Vol. 176. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. Feisty and determined!

  3. Wearing flip-flops to work: yea or nay?
  4. Yea for the commute, as long as they aren’t faded, torn up or covered in sand, and the feet should be in pretty decent shape — no crusty heels or tow-up pedicures, please. Nay for the actual workplace, though, unless you work at the beach, which would then be totally awesome.

  5. Do you remember the last outdoor concert you went to?
  6. I think it was Jordan Sparks (of American Idol fame) performing after an Oakland A’s game in 2009, and I thought she was great (whatever happened to her?).

  7. I’m secretly terrified of…
  8. …getting trapped in an elevator, dark caves and porcelain dolls with scary glass eyes (I swear they come alive at night!).

  9. One day, I’d really like to…
  10. …feel like I’m in complete control of my life. Sometimes, I feel like I’m just along for the ride, if that makes any sense.

  11. I’d like to sing a duet with ____.
  12. Madge! Of course. And our background singers would be a divalicious chorus of really, REALLY hot drag queens with voices like angels. :)

  13. Have you ever tried to hide a tattoo with makeup?
  14. Nope. I don’t have any tattoos, although I do consider getting a small one from time to time.

  15. Things you say/sing to your pet all the time:
  16. Being a full-on, bat sh*t crazy CCL, I talk to Tabs almost as much as I talk to anyone else, saying things like…

    “Gravy, Gravy Crockett!” I actually sing this one to the tune from the Ballad of Davy Crockett. “King of the wild frontier.”
    “Who’s mommy’s precious little baby cat?” (LOL! For real.)
    “Show me your tum. SHOW IT TO ME!”

  17. Do like the taste of raw cookie batter?
  18. Um, yes. I know you’re not supposed to and all, but it’s just so darn tasty. For what it’s worth, I take small bites.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Make some respectable headway on my summer reading list, prepare an actual dinner every night (versus microwaving something frozen), and spend at least 30 minutes/day playing with Tabs.

You better WORK! I continue to be amazed by the pet models sending in pics of themselves posing with MAC Evolution Revolution Lipglass. There’s a lot of undiscovered talent out there.



Watch out, Gisele…


Both Bella and her mom, reader Kaleigh, love EvRev


Enzo, who lives with Jen, expertly works his angles


Rocky (shown above) and Jazz (pictured below) love to show off for Chris


Work it, Jazz!

If you catch your cat (or dog/hamster/ferret/betta fish or other furry friend) modeling with your tube of EvRev, send me a pic by e-mail to karen at makeupandbeautyblog dot com, or via Facebook or Twitter. They just might appear in future MBB pet modeling jobs. :)

Now, on to the Monday Poll!

    4. I’m secretly terrified of… I won’t even think about it for more than a second (let alone write or say it) for fear it will happen. I’ll say it’s nothing to do with my bodily harm or death or anything, though.

    PS What did you think of TB? No offense to Fiona, but I didn’t like Petunia Dursley and I’m not liking Marnie the witch. Boring. I kept thinking, “Who cares? More Eric, please”. And OMG on Debbie Pelt. I thought she was toast last season. Can’t wait to hear how she miraculously came back. Must have been all the V in her system. :)

    Good call on those creepy dolls…we’re waiting for something to happen with that legion of creepers on True Blood, right? It’s not secret, but I’m kind of terrified of large dirigibles, looking at the size of planes, hot air balloons, etc.

    5. One day, I’d really like to _____.
    Be able to master my concentration. I have ADD, and with being so focused on finishing up school lately, I’m having a difficult time being present.

    6. I’d like to sing a duet with ____.
    If I could reverse time, it’d HAVE to be Freddie Mercury.

    7. Have you ever tried to hide a tattoo with makeup?
    Nope. I have one on my right shoulder blade, hoping to get it removed in the coming years. $$$ you know?

    8. Things you say/sing to your pet all the time:
    Oh wow…well, my little man – I started calling him ‘buddy’ as just an affectionate thing. That turned into Butters (ala South Park). I love that little guy! He also likes to do that laying on the back and all four paws and belly to the sky move. So, I tell him he’s a belly boy. I could go on…

    9. Do like the taste of raw cookie batter?
    Kinda, but I can only eat like two small bites or it is trouble later in the bathroom. Not cool. I definitely prefer a really great warm baked chocolate chip cookie. Also, I really don’t like cookie batter flavored things like ice cream. No thanks.

    10. Weekly goals:
    How about completely getting off Vicodin? I’m using less and less, but this was one major surgery.

    Mood:
    A little tired, but otherwise terrific :)

    Wearing flip-flops to work: yea or nay?
    Yea for the commute, as long as they aren’t faded, torn up or covered in sand, and the feet should be in pretty decent shape — no crusty heels or tow-up pedicures, please. Nay for the actual workplace, though, unless you work at the beach, which would then be totally awesome. – THIS. EXACTLY. Although I am totally guilty of wearing flip flops at work – just once or twice on casual Fridays.

    Do you remember the last outdoor concert you went to?
    Ray LaMontagne and Brandi Carlile. Nothing short of awesomeness. I’m so in love with her I can’t even explain it.

    I’m secretly terrified of…
    …getting stuck in a stairwell with no cell phone service (happened once to my mom and I when I was younger and I was freeeeeaked) or being stalked/followed.

    One day, I’d really like to…
    …feel like I’m in complete control of my life. Sometimes, I feel like I’m just along for the ride, if that makes any sense. THIS. Seriously Karen, you are in my head today.

    I’d like to sing a duet with ____.
    Alan Cumming. And I’m stealing your idea of hot drag queens and throwing in some hot shirtless guys too for Alan (flirting/dancing purposes, of course).

    Have you ever tried to hide a tattoo with makeup?
    Um, if you consider hickeys = tattoos, then yes.

    Things you say/sing to your pet all the time:
    It’s probably more of what didn’t I say to my pet all the time. The one thing I always said to her (she was crated for a few hours before I came home every day) was that line from the Gorillaz song Clint Eastwood that goes “Finally, someone let me out of my cage”. I also used to sing the OutKast song “So Fresh So Clean” to her whenever she had a bath. She probably thought I was the biggest weirdo. :)

    Do like the taste of raw cookie batter?
    Sign me up. Cookie dough ice cream, cookie dough straight from the bowl, whatever.

    Weekly goals:
    Learn a new killer dessert, start planning my staycation, and start up on my Mad Men DVD marathon to help ease the withdrawal pains of a July without a new season of Mad Men…

  59. Kate & Zena says:

    It’s Tuesday, but seeing as I had NO ELECTRICITY FOR 34 HOURS, I think this counts as a Monday for me, doesn’t it?

    1. Mood:
    A mix of happy and distressed. We had a huge thunderstorm/windstorm/tornado (I have no idea what to call it) yesterday that cut off our electricity (our gas and water thankfully worked), so we were left with basically NOTHING but our cellular phones. No wifi, no Internet, no TV, nothing! We tried to pack as much of our fridge as we could (which wasn’t much, trust me!) We got our power back an hour ago and took stock of what we lost in terms of food and it wasn’t good. We lost all of our meat, ice cream, milk, juice, cheese (my cheese!), eggs. It’s a bit distressing, especially since we don’t have the money to replace it all.

    2. Wearing flip-flops to work: yea or nay?
    Nay, on all flip flop accounts. Flip flops are horrible for your feet!

    3. Last outdoor concert you went to?

    I don’t have any tattoos.

    8. Things you say/sing to your pet all the time:
    “Do you want to come in?”
    “How’s my [enter pet name or her name]?”
    “Bibby kins!”
    “Is that so?” (when she’s whining and barking a lot, this is how I respond.)
    “You have such an easy life. I would kill to be you.”
    “Oh my bibby wibbby shmibby kins.”
    And then there’s the whole conversations I have with her when I’m bathing her or brushing her.

    9. Do like the taste of raw cookie batter?
    Depends on the cookie dough. Homemade peanut butter dough, sugar cookie dough and chocolate chip cookie dough are AH-MAZING. They’re better than the baked cookies themselves.

    10. Weekly goals:
    -Bathe Zena for birthday party; then brush her
    -Wrap Daddy’s present (though it pains me to wrap of the watercolor portrait of Zena. I want to keep it for myself! It’s so pretty!)
