Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, June 27

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. 174. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. Pretty good. I mean, it is Monday, but I just had a cup of coffee and cleaned off my desk, so things are looking up.

  3. When did you first understand the meaning of heartbreak?
  4. I was 14, with my first case of puppy love, and had just broken up with my boyfriend. Looking back, I was probably too young to be dating at all, but I can still remember how I felt every time we’d see each other around after the split — like something stole the air out from under me and knocked the wind out of my chest. My world had been shaken, and it took me a long time to recover.

  5. What was your all-time favorite vacation?
  6. The trip El Hub and I took to Europe in 2005. We crammed four countries into 14 days — England, France, Spain and Portugal. It was an exhilarating, exhausting time, and it was on that trip, one night in a small, candlelit dining room at a bed and breakfast in Northern Spain, that El Hub got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. :)

  7. Platform shoes: yea or nay?
  8. Yea, but it totally depends. I can’t hang with platforms taller than 2.5 inches (disaster waiting to happen).

  9. Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones?
  10. How about one of each? Okay, if I have to pick one, I’ll take a cup, please. Less mess.

  11. Would you rather text, call or e-mail?
  12. These days I’d rather call. I’m a slow texter, and I’m already overwhelmed with email.

  13. When was your last haircut?
  14. April, and I’m way overdue. My bangs are out of control!

  15. Someone who changed your life?
  16. Believe it or not, Tabs. After leaving home for school and spending years without a pet, I’d forgotten how wonderful life with a a furry companion can be.

  17. Your favorite healthy snack?
  18. Frozen grapes! Especially on hot days. They’re low-cal and almost as satisfying as ice cream and froyo (almost).

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. I didn’t take good care of myself last week. Not enough exercise or water, and too many snacks. I have to do better this week, hook or crook, and I’m going to try to get to bed by 10 every night (okay, 10:30).

I knew today was going to be a great day when I checked my email and found this adorable picture…



Meet Sweet Pea, the kitty who lives with MBB reader Amber. Notice how she’s snuggling with Amber’s tube of MAC Lipglass in Evolution Revolution? Clearly, Sweet Pea is a cat of impeccable taste. :)

If you catch your cat (or dog/hamster/turtle or other animal 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 with the Monday Poll!

  1. Advah says:

    1. Mood: tired and a bit panicky for some reason. Bad weekend, work is stressful – time to have a hot shower and relax!

    2. When did you first understand the meaning of heartbreak? When I was 22 and split up with my first serious boyfriend. Took me years to recover, especially since it happened when I finished uni and had to face all sorts of Life Questions. Although I’ve since realised I just deal terribly with breakups; thought that was the worst heartbreak but I’ve had worse since then.

    3. What was your all-time favorite vacation? I once went to Italy with my parents and it was a dream-like time filled with food and wine and good fun. Then the times I went to the US have always been wonderful; I especially loved my time in Chicago and Austin.

    4. Platform shoes: yea or nay? Nay, unless that includes wedges.

    5. Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones? Cones! I love mastering the art of eating a cone without being coated in ice cream!

    6. Would you rather text, call or e-mail? Text or call. I get overwhelmed by emails!

    7. When was your last haircut? About 3 weeks ago.

    8. Someone who changed your life? Hmm I might have to pass, hitting a blank.

    9. Your favorite healthy snack? Anything fruity!

    10. Weekly goals: Survive the week! I’ve a big work function on Thursday evening, and the week is going to be hell. I’ve also been very mopey lately and would like to get over that.
    Finally, I’m still trying to not get discouraged in that Nude Skincare competition (some people are seriously fierce there), so I want to keep coming up with post ideas without getting stressed out! Feel free to vote for me :P (I’m Adeline http://www.facebook.com/pages/NUDE-Skincare/187435011286448)

    1. Mood: Content! It’s a nice feeling.

    2. When did you first understand the meaning of heartbreak? I think I have always understood it conceptually, but probably when my cousin died when I was young was my first taste of it personally. It has been 13 years and I am still devastated by it.

    3. What was your all-time favorite vacation? Going with my family to the beach. There is nothing better than spending time with the people who love you more than anything and relaxing in a beautiful place.

    4. Platform shoes: yea or nay? If you can walk in ‘em, I say go for it. I don’t like to say what people should and should not wear.

    5. Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones? Cones! I’m not sure why, most of them taste like stale cardboard.

    6. Would you rather text, call or e-mail? Ugh, none of the above! I’m so bad at keeping in touch- I would rather just talk in person.

    7. When was your last haircut? About 6 months ago? i get one like 1 a year…

    8. Someone who changed your life? My best friend and boyfriend of 8 years. We met when I was young and stupid. He really did save my life. I’m still young-ish, but not quite as stupid as I was. :)

    9. Your favorite healthy snack? Fruit! I looooove fruit. And smoothies.

    10. Weekly goals: Study study study! These summer courses are threatening to kick my butt!

But with my evenings free, I won’t be giving up my laptop for Justin Beiber videos. Which ALWAYS happens when my daughter sees that I’m on YouTube….and I’m a sucker for her cute face :-) Happy Monday all!

    • Karen says:

      Aww, Melissa! I would’ve come to your party.

      Where in Hawaii did you stay when you were deployed?

      • Melissa says:

        Pearl Harbor :-) We Navy kids gotta stop in the Harbor. I did enjoy going to the beach- which I never do because Im so fair, but Hawaii’s beaches are warm and amazing! Thanks for coming to wanting to come to my almost party lol

        • Karen says:

          Oh cool. I like that side of the island!

          I love, LOVE the beaches in Hawaii, especially when the ocean’s so warm that it feels like bath water.

    Pretty exhausted. I had a 3-day course and it left me completely knackered, though I thoroughly enjoyed it!

    Yay for me, but too high and they look tarty instead.

    5. Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones?
    Cups for less mess, cones for taste!

    6. Would you rather text, call or e-mail?
    Depends on the person and the issue. If it’s really urgent and I need an immediate answer I’d call. Otherwise texting/e-mailing should be fine for me.

    7. When was your last haircut?
    End of last month. My bangs mainly needed the trimming!

    8. Someone who changed your life?
    I’d say my current boyfriend, as cheesy and lame as it may sound. He really taught me a lot of things such as being patient and tolerant, and brings out the best in me :) I’m really grateful for him, and for being able to talk to him and share things with him.

    9. Your favorite healthy snack?
    I’d have to say energy/breakfast bars for this. Uncle Toby’s, mainly, since I had them as a child and they’re nostalgic to me!

    It depends on my mood. Sometimes I like to bite the bottom off the cone and suck all the ice cream out, like it’s a funnel.

    6. Would you rather text, call or e-mail?
    Text or email. I don’t like phone calls.

    7. When was your last haircut?
    A long time ago. Maybe September.

    8. Someone who changed your life?
    My 10th grade history teacher Mr. O’Connor. He was kind to me and always recognized my hard work at an emotionally fragile time when I felt like most of the adults in my life were judging me unfairly. I’ll never forget you, dude.

    Granola and fruit. Yum!

    10. Weekly goals:

So awesome.

    4. Platform shoes: yea or nay? Nay. For the most part.

    2. When did you first understand the meaning of heartbreak? I was probably in 8th grade when the boy I liked said he didn’t like me. I definitely didn’t understand it fully then and i was very young, but there was always that awkward “I-need-to-get-outta-here” feeling whenever I saw him in school or in classes. Fortunately, we’re friends today and laugh about that stuff now.

    5. Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones? Sugar cone for sure. Even better if there’s chocolate at the bottom.

  21. Megan says:

    1. Mood: Accomplished! Today I have weeded the flower beds (which were really weed beds), done laundry, and given my baby a cupcake to eat. Then I gave him a bath. We are rollin’ over here!
    2. When did you first understand the meaning of heartbreak? Oh, man. Sometime in high school…I’d liked a friend of mine off and on (mostly on) since 6th grade. We were close, but he just didn’t feel the same way. When he finally put it into words, my world fell apart.
    3. What was your all-time favorite vacation? The one we took this year in Naples, FL. It was our first vacation with baby, and we had a blast. Swimming, beaching, shopping, eating–it was all made more fun with a one-year-old.
    4. Platform shoes: yea or nay? Moderately-sized, sure.
    5. Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones? Oh man…I could write a thesis on this. Short story is if you order something huge to take home to your freezer, cup. If you’re eating it right then, man up and get a cone.
    6. Would you rather text, call or e-mail? Email. I’m naturally introverted, and even though most people see me as outgoing, I’d rather take refuge behind my keyboard when possible.
    7. When was your last haircut? Almost 2 months ago–but you can get away with that when you have a pixie cut.
    8. Someone who changed your life? I’ll go with my kitty, too. Pepper was my first experience with unconditional love, and she’ll always be my baby girl and best kitty friend. And one of the loves of my life.
    9. Your favorite healthy snack? I am also a big fan of the frozen grapes. Frozen blueberries, too. Dried fruit in the fall season.
    10. Weekly goals: Finish weeding the flower beds. Sleep well. Oh, and remember to add a little oil to Pepper’s food…she’s been having hairball issues, poor kitty. :(

    1. Mood: pretty good, back to work after a month reading beauty blogs at home, bored for the most part

    2. When did you first understand the meaning of heartbreak? at 12. I was mad in love with this kid, Ugo, a grunge hottie living nearby. When he broke up with me I was eating frozen yogurt and never had some since! I was depressed for a good 4 months afterwards. It was awful at that time. Kinda cute for a 12 yr old!

    3. What was your all-time favorite vacation? 4 yrs ago I went up north to a friend’s place in a small city deep in the woods and the next week I went 14 hours from there to a small city next to the sea and both places were totally different in scenery but breathtaking!

    4. Platform shoes: yea or nay? I used to wear them alot back in the 90′s when they were hot, but I twisted my ankle more than enough to stay far far away from them forever. OUch!

    6. Would you rather text, call or e-mail? Depends how much I have to say

    7. When was your last haircut? April. Im 2 weeks overdue, but they’re healthy and I kinda like the length like that

    8. Someone who changed your life? I have to say my cat, too. I was not a stable person in my relationship and I was not demonstrative, couldn’t show love. That cat just appeared in my house when he was just born and I decided to take care of it and to learn with it to develop a true, long lasting and sharing relationship. I tried to give it some love everyday. When I felt like I was doing a good job with it, I made a move on the man of my life, telling him I was ready for a real relationship. Although Im not the most generous person, affection-wise, both my cat and my man are happy! I’ve been with my hub for 3 1/2 yrs and my cat, 5 yrs.

    Reflective. I got into an intense conversation with someone yesterday and it brought up a lot of “stuff” from the past.

    2. When did you first understand the meaning of heartbreak?

    Probably the first time a close friend passed away. It was expected (cancer), but it was gut-wrenching. There’s always that thought of “well, maybe she’ll beat this.”

    3. What was your all-time favorite vacation?

    I was going through a difficult time, and a friend just told me to take a couple of days off from work and pack some casual clothes. He picked me up, picked up three other friends, and the next thing I know we’re at the airport, heading down to Disneyland for a wacky, fun long weekend.

    4. Platform shoes: yea or nay?

    Not for me, but on some people they look awesome.

    5. Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones?

    Cups. I eat so slowly that a cone just becomes a big drippy mess.

    6. Would you rather text, call or e-mail?

    E-mail, definitely.

    7. When was your last haircut?

    A couple of months ago. Time to go again.

    8. Someone who changed your life?

    My friend John. I met him during a very challenging time in my life, and he was so instantly supportive and accepting of me even though we had just met. One of those people you can tell anything to.

    9. Your favorite healthy snack?

    Watermelon

    10. Weekly goals:

    Job hunt, get a haircut, and I might even feel motivated to color my hair.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Heidi,

      I think there must be something in the air. Last week I had a long, intense conversation with my brother about stuff from the past and it’s been hanging with me for the past few days. I believe in looking forward (no regrets!), but sometimes it’s interesting to look back and see how much things have changed, you know?

  25. Trude says:

  30. lexi says:

    1. Mood: doing a’ight, as they say. It is my last week of summer classes – just finished all of my work and the final for one course today – so only 3 more to go! I’m having some massive knee surgery next Tuesday and just have so much to get done before then around the house and with coursework, so I’m hoping these will be good distractions for me!

    2. When did you first understand the meaning of heartbreak?
    When I was 17…had my first real bf – for a short amount of time but it was one of those whirlwind deals. He was 21…looking back, I’m not sure HOW my parents let that happen at the time.

    3. What was your all-time favorite vacation?
    Our wedding trip to Vegas was pretty good! We got married at the MGM Grand. It was pretty, great weather, good food, fun times, and just the right amount of people flew in.

    4. Platform shoes: yea or nay?
    A few things here: 1) please read above – knee surgery + platforms = bad news bears, 2) I like the look of some of them, but if they get too extreme, I think they make people’s legs look like tree trunks (and I SO don’t need help in that area!)

    5. Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones?
    I LOVE a good cone, but I’m picky, and they are messy. Although I had an AWESOME cone in San Diego a few months ago.

    6. Would you rather text, call or e-mail?
    Email

    7. When was your last haircut?
    Thankfully, finally got one about 3 weeks ago. Prior to that – it had been January! Yikes.

    8. Someone who changed your life?
    Oliver Joseph (otherwise known as Ollie – my lab). When we got him, my heart was healing (and continues to heal) from the loss of my 16 year old Golden Retriever. Ollie brings me so much happiness and love. In a very dark time, he has been my very energetic little light :)

    9. Your favorite healthy snack?
    Good on’ ya with the call out on frozen grapes. However, after 3 jaw surgeries, we’re not on speaking terms. I make some damn good red pepper hummus – so I love to eat that with some carrots and red peppers. Even The Husb is getting into it!

    10. Weekly goals:
    Finish coursework and finals for 3 more courses, clean house, prepare some meals for my downtime for the next few weeks, buy some skirts/shorts that will work with my massive brace that I’ll have for the next 6 weeks.

    PS! what did you think of TB last night?!? did you watch the second epi on HBO GO? I did…that was much better than episode one, I thought…

    • Karen says:

      Hi Lexi,

      I haven’t seen the second episode yet! To be honest I was kinda “Eh” about the first one. I felt like there were too many story lines happening at once. It sounds like the writers get it together in the second ep, though.

      • lexi says:

        I totally agree – I was annoyed with a lot of the writing in the first one. especially when it came to the grandfather…

    1. Mood: On the way to happy. Its getting close to the end of the day, and my crazy bad cold/flu symptoms are waning(or I’m just learning to ignore them). This morning was BAD, but its getting better!
    2. When did you first understand the meaning of heartbreak? I think I was 15.. before that I had boyfriends, but to be honest, didn’t really care about them. I was seeing this guy that used to go to my school, but secretly(how dumb was I?!). Anyways, I remember, he came to my school, and when I said hi to him.. he said “what’s your name again?”. Ouchhh. But nothing compares to the heartbreak that comes when you break a guys heart.. I still have that one going on.
    3. What was your all-time favorite vacation? I would have to say my European trip as well! Though it wasn’t as excellent in company as I wished it were, the sights were amazing. I’m sure the next time I go will be WAYY better, especially if I go with the boy.
    4. Platform shoes: yea or nay? depends on the platform. Some platforms can look HUSSY. Some platforms can look ugly. But a really nice platform shoe? Sexy, classic and awesome.
    5. Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones? Cups. Though every once in awhile a cone makes my day!
    6. Would you rather text, call or e-mail? Text. I’m awkward as hell on the phone.
    7. When was your last haircut? February? Its been way too long.
    8. Someone who changed your life? My brother, at least later in life(when he turned 19 or so.. I was 15). He would say it like it is to me, but also taught me to be confident in myself and not take no junk from no one. He still changes my life everyday.
    9. Your favorite healthy snack? any veggies. Carrots are harder to chew, so I don’t do those as often. Celery, radishes, tomatoes( I know, fruit), lettuce, cucumbers, peppers, green beans, anything! I also like raisins and oranges, as well as apples+peanut butter.
    10. Weekly goals: Get rid of this cold/flu hybrid that’s going on. Enjoy my week while looking forward to the weekend. hopefully exercise, and play disc golf at least once!

  35. Erin says:

    1. Mood: Ok. I feel a bit like I’m walking on eggshells in my own house because I’m dogsitting a very nervous, very small grehound!
    2. When did you first understand the meaning of heartbreak?: I can’t say I have, and I hope to never find out.
    3. What was your all-time favorite vacation?: My honeymoon. We also crammed several European countries into 16 days, but it was pretty organized since we were on a cruise.
    4. Platform shoes: yea or nay?: No way. I don’t like the look of them, and I’m not eager for an ankle sprain.
    5. Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones?: I like both, but I would probably choose cup over cone because of the mess factor.
    6. Would you rather text, call or e-mail? Email all the way. I don’t text, and I sometimes find it hard to get off the phone with people without making it seem like I’m bored with them.
    7. When was your last haircut?: Ummm, November? Bad, I know. I’m telling myself that I don’t need a haircut because I’m trying to grow it out, but the real reason is that I’m just too cheap right now.
    8. Someone who changed your life?: My husband, no doubt about it.
    9. Your favorite healthy snack?: Edamame, yogurt, mango, cottage cheese–there are a lot.
    10. Weekly goals: Survive the dogsit, get over some seriously painful job rejection, apply for more jobs, and continue to do some house remodeling.

  36. kalcedon says:

    1. Mood: Mixed. I’m a bit sick, but at the same time, one of my fave singers posted a preview of his new band’s first song, and it is sooo goooood… I tend to have overly great expectations, but it even surpassed them! Woohoo! :)
    2. When did you first understand the meaning of heartbreak? I was in 5th or 6th grade… it wasn’t even a relationship or anything, but I was soooo in love with a classmate of mine, and he was kind of nice to me always… but at a school party I heard him call me a nerd and laughing at me… so he used me a bit (I don’t think he knew I felt anything for him, but still)…
    3. What was your all-time favorite vacation? The time my family and I got to Rome. I love the trips when it’s PACKED with LOTS of sightseeing, education, culture, museums. I’m not one to lye on the beach for 2 weeks and do nothing.
    4. Platform shoes: yea or nay? Yea, definitely… if they don’t look cheap or sloppy.
    5. Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones? I actually prefer cones :). But I love the colorful plastic spoons we get with the cups :D.
    6. Would you rather text, call or e-mail? I’d say I’d text (or send a fb message). I don’t like talking on the phone.
    7. When was your last haircut? Uhmmm… sometime in May, I guess? But it was just some cut from the length. I let my hair grow a little bit (maximum a year), and then I’d like to try a different style.
    8. Someone who changed your life? My best friend. Until then, I didn’t really have anyone except for my family whom I felt comfortable with telling my innermost feelings and worries and personal things.
    9. Your favorite healthy snack? Fruits, hands down. Watermelon, grapes, orange, tangerine, pear (but only when it’s uber-hard :D), blood orange, and all kinds of red/black berries :).
    10. Weekly goals: Watch at least one more serious movie (in the past quarter a year I’ve only watched cartoons, idiotic comedies and sucky thrillers), tidy my room, read a book annnd enjoy my birthday :D.

  37. lolamd says:

    1. Mood: Okay. It is a beautiful day but it is negated by the fact that it is Monday

  38. Christina says:

    1. Mood: Slightly excited and slightly nervous because I’m about to start summer school tomorrow XD Upper division bio classes… yaaay XD

    2. When did you first understand the meaning of heartbreak? Goodness… last December, actually. It was a really painful couple of months (would’ve been a longer moping period but college classes forces you to re-focus your attention XD) just because of how it all had to end but I firmly believe all these things happen for a reason!

    3. What was your all-time favorite vacation? Well… it was a vacation/high school convention but Montreal, Quebec! I LOVE Canada! <3 The area where I stayed had a beautiful Chinatown and everyone there spoke French so it was a real trip! Unfortunately, all the years of Spanish I learned in middle school and high school weren't of too much help to me :P

    4. Platform shoes: yea or nay? Yea, as long as you can handle the height! I'm more nervous of the possibility of broken ankles more than anything else! XD

    5. Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones? Cones, because I think they taste yummy :3

    6. Would you rather text, call or e-mail? I love texting. It's fast and instant. I'd say the biggest con is that if you're a frequent texter without a memory card in your phone, all your text takes up a lot of memory space! XD

    7. When was your last haircut? … last August. But I plan on getting my haircut this Friday! XD

    8. Someone who changed your life? My best, Gemini friend :) I went through A LOT of bullying throughout middle school and it left me scarred with a lot of self-confidence issues. My bff and I are soul sisters and she's helped me believe in myself more and we are always there for each other no matter what! I'm extremely lucky we've been going to the same university or I don't know what I would have done XD

    9. Your favorite healthy snack? Frozen yogurt! :3 From Yogurt World, I'm a big fan of the Tart Asian Peach :3

    10. Weekly goals: To not be too overwhelmed by summer school class and pharmacy school applications (not going to lie, the application process has been pretty daunting and nerve-wrecking XP)

  39. Kate & Zena says:

    1. Mood:
    I was happy when I woke up, but now I’m very sad. My neighbor’s are starving Hazel. I fed her ONE CUP of Zena’s lamb & rice kibble (which she practically inhaled) and I’m calling animal control again. It’s not fair that she should starve when it’s the neighbor’s fault that they don’t understand her. It makes me very sad that I care more about Hazel than my neighbor’s….the people who own her.

    2. When did you first understand the meaning of heartbreak?
    I was almost five. I came home from pre-school and went to greet my sand-colored hamster named Sandie and found he was dead. I felt my heart break into two. I was so intent that he made it to Heaven comfortably that I made him a bed out of cotton balls and tissue (with a one cotton ball pillow). I couldn’t bear the thought of him being buried in the soil with no bed. It’s the kind of heartbreak I know most people are looking for, but the people version is too hard for me to talk about. My best friend hurt me very badly.

    3. What was your all-time favorite vacation?
    When I went with my choir to Florida during spring vacation in 2004, naturally. Everyone where I lived got to live with temperatures in the 30s and 40s; I got to go around in my shorts as the temperatures were in the 70s and 80s!

    4. Platform shoes: yea or nay?
    When I was little, yay! Now, nay! They really hurt my body.

    5. Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones?
    Ice cream cones. I like to eat everything! Cups are for wimps like my brother!

    6. Would you rather text, call or e-mail?
    E-mail or text. I’m rather traumatized by calls (long, long story.)

    7. When was your last haircut?
    It was either March or April. I did get my bangs trimmed two weeks ago though! Damn those high maintenance bangs!

    8. Someone who changed your life?
    Mrs. Brooks, my 6th grade math teacher. She finally helped me understand fractions and she funny. She took time to help all of us individually and spent a lot of time with me, especially when it came to fractions! She’s also the first real death I experienced. It hit me hard as she died from a seizure (she was Epileptic like me) and she was pregnant. The baby died when she died and she died around the Christmas holidays. She’s one of the first people I think of when I think of “people who changed my life.” That was the very first year I got A’s in math. When she passed away, we got a fresh-out-of-college math teacher and also one who didn’t know how to deal with an entire wing that just experienced death (Each grade in our school had two wings; i.e. 6A and 6B, 7A and 7B) , so needless to say my grades slipped a bit. Our wing (6B) was able to raise enough money to buy a star named after her. At the time it was trendy (it was 2000). It was a hard year for us.

    9. Your favorite healthy snack?
    Seedless green grapes. I can eat them until I turn blue….as long as they aren’t the super sour ones. The red ones are okay, but I prefer the green ones.

    10. Weekly goals:
    -Brush Zeebers
    -Go to Bowling
    -Try to avoid tree pollen. Yes, I went to the allergist…..and found out I’m only allergic to TREES. Tress, people, trees!
    -Call animal control for Hazel. She deserves better.

    • Karen says:

      Poor Hazel. :( I hope animal control does something for her soon.

      • Kate & Zena says:

        Well, they hooked me over to the police (can you see where this is going?) because I’m not in their jurisdiction. I called the police and basically bawled my eyes out (my tear ducts just can’t behave) over the phone talking about her. Thankfully, I learned that in our county, if you’re going to have your dog out for long periods of time, you must provide food, water and a physical shelter. It is considered animal cruelty (not neglect like in some places) to starve a dog. Then, the lady on the phone asked me when they sent the officer over, if I wanted to speak to him or her. My answer was a firm no because there was no way I was going to survive talking to an officer without becoming incomprehensible. Basically, I was told what I was told the last time–they’d send an officer over. If they see signs of abuse or cruelty, they’d start an investigation.

        The patrol officer comes literally FIVE minutes later. I was cleaning out Z’s ears outside (okay, I lie. I went outside when I saw the truck. I wanted to see everything. I’m somewhat nosy.) After I was done, I tried to get Z inside; well, she just wasn’t havin’ it, even with cheese. Cheese turned into training in front of the officer because I was trying to figure out how to get her INSIDE.

        However, one time I was close to the gate and said, “Sit.” Well, both Zena AND Hazel sat their butts down. I was stuck; do I treat just Zena or do I treat both of them? My trainer brain said both as I believe if a dog willingly does something for you, you treat them (I had been teaching Hazel “sit” during those long hours she spent outside) and the other said the evil lady won’t like my treating her dog. I gave in and gave both of them a piece of cheese because they both used their brains to listen. Of course, the lady snapped, “Don’t feed Hazel cheese, please.”

        So, long story short, I have no idea what’s going on now. All I now is that my dad was P.O’d at me for doing it. He made me feel awful for what I did because he thinks the neighbors will try to kill or hurt Zena whenever we call the police/animal control for Hazel. I know they’re cruel, but I don’t think they’re THAT cruel. I was trying to do a good thing that could benefit both Hazel and Zena (Hazel harasses Zena sometimes). I didn’t want to be reduced to tears for a phone call that was hard enough for me to make because I care. Sometimes I don’t know whom he loves more–me or Zena.

  40. Shauna says:

    1. Mood:
    Bored at the moment. I am happy to say though that I tried a new ‘look’ this morning and it came out great :)

    2. When did you first understand the meaning of heartbreak?
    Younger than I care to remember. . .

    3. What was your all-time favorite vacation?
    Never really been on one I’m afriad

    4. Platform shoes: yea or nay?
    Yay! I used to wear them everyday, but as I got older (and started dating a man 1 inch taller than I) My style changed a bit. However, I LOVE heels!

    5. Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones?
    Cones!

    6. Would you rather text, call or e-mail?
    Text, UNLESS there is alot to say in which case I can find texting a bit of an inconvenince.

    7. When was your last haircut?
    Right before thanksgiving, speaking of which I think I am due for a cut and color refresh :)

    8. Someone who changed your life?
    My fiance’ Drew

    9. Your favorite healthy snack?
    Hmm…. green/red seedless grapes. OR raw carrots with french onion dip

    10. Weekly goals:
    Go to bed eariler, finish the last book of the sookie stackhouse series!, and try and stay positive in my times of stress~

  41. Saffron says:

    Aww that vacation story is adorable, so is your fan kitty :) .

    1. Mood:

    Excellent! I have two competing interview gauntlets I’m going for both of which are places I’d love to work. Both are slight pay and responsibility downgrades but sanity upgrades, and I’m looking for that right now. Both are with 501c3s and that suits my goody goody self quite well! Let’s hope I get an offer from at least one of them!

    2. When did you first understand the meaning of heartbreak?
    My most serious relationship was in my early 20s and losing that was rough. Now that I have been alone so much of my 30s I still look back and wonder why I never managed another durable relationship.

    3. What was your all-time favorite vacation?
    Solo weeklong backcountry hike in Alaska – now that I know lots of stories of horrible things happening to solitary females in AK I’m not sure I’d do it again, but it was ammmaaazing!

    4. Platform shoes: yea or nay?
    Love! I’m 6 feet tall and still wear ‘em. I am a stroke survivor and my balance is poor, so platforms are much easier for me to wear than regular heels.

    5. Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones?
    Cups.
    <– klutz

    6. Would you rather text, call or e-mail?
    Anything but call. I loathe talking on the phone and being interrupted by voice calls. I'm always super focused so I find written communication to be less disruptive.

    7. When was your last haircut?
    about 3 months ago, I have thick curly hair and don't mind it a little shaggy. The longest I have ever gone without a haircut, true story, is 3 years. I was living in a community full of women who all had straightened hair with streaky blonde highlights and I didn't trust the hairdressers to treat my carrot red jew-fro with the respect it deserves.

    8. Someone who changed your life?
    One of the best changes in my life was when I was trying to pull myself up from all the troubles of my youth and I utilized a state agency that helps mentally ill and disabled folks find employment and landed my first good paying, stable job. It's been all roses and ice cream since then, so thank you taxpayers of my home state for funding that program!

    9. Your favorite healthy snack?
    that tart, low sugar froyo with lots of fruit on it. satisfied my sweet tooth when I was getting lean for bodybuilding competitions :)

    10. Weekly goals:
    Study for interviews, ace them, and make it look like I still give a shit at my current gig. :P Have a good one ya'll!

    • Karen says:

      Tabs is a little jealous that another cat is on MBB! He’ll just have to get over it.

      Good luck with the interviews! I know you’ll do great.

  42. Haley says:

    I’ll answer number 2.

    My fiancé and I had just moved in together and within a month I look in his ph and I find a love letter written to my older sister saying he truly loves her. She never acted or even replied but she never told me bc she was scared of hurting me. I was soo devastated I couldn’t breathe.

    Le sigh I forgave him and I’m still w him but I’m still hurt. We are now married but every time I think of it it truly hearts. I forgave him bc we were both young and things happen. No excuse for that though.

    Worst thing? Everyone knows about it. And I dont think ppl think he loves me bc of it

    • Karen says:

      Hi Haley,

      I’m sorry this happened to you. It must’ve been a very hard thing to go through.

      You sound like a very forgiving person, and your fiancee is lucky to have you.

  43. Solé says:

    Hi Karen! Happy Monday!

    1. Mood: Unduly chipper. I have a lot to do over the next six weeks (we’re moving in with hubby’s mom), and I should be overwhelmed, but something about this amazing weather and only having two classes a week that feels too good to be frazzled.

    2. When did you first understand the meaning of heartbreak? To be honest, I can’t remember. This probably sounds overly dramatic, but my childhood was fraught with bitter disappointments, so by the time my heart was actually broken by a guy, the feeling was all too familiar.

    3. What was your all-time favorite vacation? I can’t really say. I’ve only really been to Chile to visit relatives, and each one of those vacations has been amazing in its own way. I’m overdue for one now, but we won’t have money for that for a while.

    4. Platform shoes: yea or nay? I like them, but I can only wear them myself if they have a sturdy heel, not a skinny little stiletto. And not too high. Also, I don’t like the ones where the platform under the ball of your foot looks like it’s separate from the rest of the shoe. Does that make sense?

    5. Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones? Cones, but only sugar cones, not cake cones. But I can’t eat ice cream that fast because of issues with sugar, so I get it in a cone and get a cup anyway to catch the drips.

    6. Would you rather text, call or e-mail? Text or email. I’m terrible with the phone these days.

    7. When was your last haircut? My first real haircut was in summer of ’09, but my sisters cut my hair in February. I’m way overdue for a professional trim.

    8. Someone who changed your life? My baby. I feel like I’m the same person, but with a whole new sense of purpose and confidence. The feeling that someone depends on me with her life is extremely sobering. I need to be the best that I can be in everything I do from now on. She deserves nothing less.

    9. Your favorite healthy snack? Plain Greek yogurt with sliced strawberries, a sprinkle of stevia, and some granola for crunch.

    10. Weekly goals: To get organized for the move, and work on some paperwork that I’ve been avoiding.

  44. Rachel says:

    1. Mood: Anxious. My husband is waiting to hear back about an interview and it has me on edge!
    2. When did you first understand the meaning of heartbreak? I started dating a boy at 15 and we dated for 10 months. When he broke up with me I was devastated. I was a zombie. It really was so unhealthy, but a major learning experience for me!
    3. What was your all-time favorite vacation? Anytime I’m in Maui or Graeagle it’s my all-time favorite. Oh, and Disneyland. :)
    4. Platform shoes: yea or nay? Yay! Nothing to hooker-esque though!
    5. Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones? Cake cones please!
    6. Would you rather text, call or e-mail? Text for short and sweet. Email for long.
    7. When was your last haircut? April as well and I too need one! Ugh!
    8. Someone who changed your life? my hubby…he’s taught me SO much about who I am…good and bad!
    9. Your favorite healthy snack? Edamame!
    10. Weekly goals: Pack, get everything in order before I go out of town!! Yikes!

  45. Imogen says:

    This is the first time I’ve done one of these…

    1. Mood: kind of flat

    2. When did you first understand the meaning of heartbreak? When I saw the man I’d been seeing (but absolutely refusing to commit to) out with his new girlfriend. I felt like I couldn’t breathe. I cried all night as I realised I’d lost him due to being such a fool. He turned up on my doorstep at 6am the following morning. He’s now my husband :D

    3. What was your all-time favorite vacation? The beautiful, amazing, breathtaking Maldives. My wonderful husband proposed to me there and we were so happy there that we went back (different island) for our honeymoon. It’s definitely my happy place.

    4. Platform shoes: yea or nay? For me a definite nay. I am tall enough! I love heels but adding a platform is just overkill for me.

    5. Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones? Cups all the way!

    6. Would you rather text, call or e-mail? Sadly the answer would be text. I am so busy now that I just don’t have time to chat.

    7. When was your last haircut? About a month or so ago.

    8. Someone who changed your life? My son! My life changed beyond all recognition the second he was born. Otherwise my friend and mentor, Karen (great name!) who gave me the kick up the butt (and the confidence) to get myself into a good drama school.

    9. Your favorite healthy snack? Hmmmm…. yoghurt with berries and nuts.

    10. Weekly goals: go to the gym at least twice

    • Karen says:

      Hi Imogen,

      It’s nice to meet you!

      Can I just say I’m very jealous that you’ve visited Maldives? It’s one of my top 10 places dream vacation spots.

  46. Suri says:

    1. Mood: good now. I got into a fender bender earlier and I was super pissed!
    2. When did you first understand the meaning of heartbreak? My husband when we first started dating. We split for a year and I was sick without him.
    3. What was your all-time favorite vacation? It’s a tie between the girls vacation in Miami and our honeymoon in PR. I had an awesome time with my girls for my 25th and honeymoon? You already know.
    4. Platform shoes: yea or nay? Only a platform in the front please.
    5. Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones? Karen I’m with you both please!
    6. Would you rather text, call or e-mail? Depends on who it is and how I’m feeling to be honest.
    7. When was your last haircut? It’s coming up on 6 months, I’m due for a girls day with Momma.
    8. Someone who changed your life? My husband. He taught me to be strong and stand up for myself. He taught me that I could really love unconditionally and how strong I could be when the odds are really against me.
    9. Your favorite healthy snack? carrots
    10. Weekly goals: Relax because summer vacation begins tommorrow!! :D

    BTW Karen I just got my tube of Evolution Revolution and I AM IN LOVE!!!! <3

    • Karen says:

      Hi Suri,

      Sorry to hear about your accident. Are you okay?

      I’m SUPER EXCITED that you <3 EvRev!!! Have you taken it out into the sun yet? You gotta put a layer on and then go outside… you’ll see the sparkles do their thang.

  47. Blue says:

    Hi, Karen!

    1. Mood:
    Pretty good. We’re having a barbecue tonight and a bunch of little kids will be there, so I’m a little frazzled about that, but other than that, good.

    2. When did you first understand the meaning of heartbreak?
    High school, mostly, all throughout. The fact that half the guys I have liked before turned out to be gay wasn’t too fun. I’m not joking, either!

    3. What was your all-time favorite vacation?
    Mexico! I was just so gorgeous all the time. I loved learning about the culture there, the art was so unique, and it was always so sunny and warm and just a little bit windy in the evening/at nighttime. And best part – it always smelled like coconuts. :D

    4. Platform shoes: yea or nay?
    Nay! Any kind of high-heeled shoe is the devil for the me! My feet always hurt afterwards – it doesn’t matter what kind of pair I wear!

    5. Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones?
    Cups, definitely. I don’t like ice cream cones!

    6. Would you rather text, call or e-mail?
    Text. I don’t like talking on the phone that much, really, and I feel like everyone I know only checks their e-mail once a month (except me!) and so if I sent them something now, they wouldn’t get it until wayyy later and by that time it would probably be completely irrelevant!

    7. When was your last haircut?
    About three weeks ago. I went to a different place than I usually do – and I love it!

    8. Someone who changed your life?
    My little brothers, Benji and Lucas. :D They may be a huge pain sometimes and make me very angry, but I love them and wouldn’t trade them for anything in the world.

    9. Your favorite healthy snack?
    A melange of blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries. You put all three of those in a bowl together and I’ll be on it pronto!

    10. Weekly goals:
    Get to bed and actually fall asleep before the early hours of the morning. For the majority of last week I was dwelling on my computer to the earliest, I think, of what was five in the morning. So I need to go to bed when it’s actually nighttime and spend much less time on the computer!

    I hope we all have a great week! :D

  48. jen. says:

    1. Mood: Out of sorts. I didn’t get much sleep last night.
    2. When did you first understand the meaning of heartbreak? Not until earlier this year. I guess I’m lucky if I made it to 28 without getting my heart broken, right?
    3. What was your all-time favorite vacation? Hmm. It’s a tie between the time I went to Seattle on my own (after a non-heart-breaking breakup) and the trip my bf and I took to SF right after we started dating. Both were super amazing for almost the exact opposite reasons.
    4. Platform shoes: yea or nay? Nay. I am short, but I am a klutz.
    5. Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones? Cups! I’m not a big ice cream person, though.
    6. Would you rather text, call or e-mail? Text. I text WAY too much.
    7. When was your last haircut? Toward the end of May… and I need to get my hair thinned again like crazy.
    8. Someone who changed your life? A former student of mine from my very first year working in a school. He was the first kid I worked with who had autism, and he made me realize that’s what I wanted to do. He is one of the awesome-est kids I have ever worked with, for sure.
    9. Your favorite healthy snack? I really like eating lemons and salt…. not too great for the teeth, though.
    10. Weekly goals: Finish going through a bunch of stuff I need to get rid of. Watching Hoarders is excellent motivation. Also, work on teaching my dog how to sit (I just got him a week ago, so exciting!).

    PS: I just ordered my tube of Evolution Revolution yesterday after getting paid. I can’t wait to get it!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Jen,

      I’m super stoked for you to get your tube of EvRev. The first time you put it on, be sure to go out into the sun (don’t forget to bring a mirror) so you can see the sparkles come to life.

  49. Chris says:

    1. Mood: A little bored. I didn’t have much to do today.

    2. When did you first understand the meaning of heartbreak?: When my cousin/best friend Reuben died. He was only 30, and the shock of knowing that I would never have my best friend around numbed me for a long time.

    3. What was your all-time favorite vacation?: Probably the time I went to California for my cousin Alice’s wedding. It was not technically a vacation, but it was so relaxing!

    4. Platform shoes: yea or nay?: Nay.

    5. Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones? Cups. I don’t need any more calories! :P

    6. Would you rather text, call or e-mail? Text. I am the texting queen.

    7. When was your last haircut?: Oh man. Maybe a year ago?

    8. Someone who changed your life?: Ms. Stillman, my 11th grade English teacher. She was a grand, kind lady who had given up her career as a lawyer to teach in the inner city. Those cheesy movies are sometimes realistic!

    10. Weekly goals: try to find a part time job and practice using my camera more.

    8. Someone who changed your life? a lot of people have had significant influence. My old boss at one of the companies who took a chance on me and allowed me to grow with the company, my mother’s death was a huge impact changing my life completely and of course my ex as well. A lot of life lessions & growth.
    9. Your favorite healthy snack? fresh fruit
    10. Weekly goals: Just one, continue to look for another job. Someday…

    • Karen says:

      Hi PS,

      I know what you mean. It’s very, very hard to lose a pet. I can’t even think of the day when Tabs decides it’s time to head to the rainbow bridge. :(

  52. Lo says:

    1. Mood: Exhausted. Today was a rollercoaster of emotions.

    2. When did you first understand the meaning of heartbreak? I don’t really know. I guess truly heartbroken (not just teen angst), I’d say freshman in college.

    3. What was your all-time favorite vacation? My family and I were never really able to go on vacations :( But I did love the rare occasions we got to visit my grandparents.

    4. Platform shoes: yea or nay? Yea, within reason. None of those crazy pornstar heels!

    5. Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones? Cones, if it’s a small treat, cups if I’m pigging out.

    6. Would you rather text, call or e-mail? If it’s my mom, grandma, or super close friend, call. Otherwise, text. Unless it’s someone I’m not close with at all, and an email will do.

    7. When was your last haircut? A few months ago. I’m due for another.

    8. Someone who changed your life? I think there have been too many, as of late. Right now, I have one friend who’s been a lesson in patience and forgiveness (and sometimes, love) x1000!

    9. Your favorite healthy snack? Definitely fresh fruit or yogurt.

    10. Weekly goals: Get the hang of my latest school schedule, including all the supplemental “tutoring” type classes. Learning everything from Chem 2 and Calculus in only 6 weeks is going to fry my brain!

  53. Stef Smith says:

    1. Mood: Kind of shocked that it’s almost the end of June! Craaaaazy!
    2. When did you first understand the meaning of heartbreak? In Kindergarten, the boy I loved did not love me. I loved him until I was 19 and met the man that would become my husband. But it’s okay, a little heartbreak gets your heart ready for real love.
    3. What was your all-time favorite vacation? Hmmmm, last year we packed up the kids, and went on our first family trip to an amusement park, Universal Studios. The kids are finally big enough to go on real vacations.
    4. Platform shoes: yea or nay? Yay!
    5. Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones? Sugar cone please!!! But only with one scoop of ice cream, if I want two scoops then it has to be a cup.
    6. Would you rather text, call or e-mail? Facebook email please! I have a couple of friends that I talk to on the phone, but I’m a big big emailer!
    7. When was your last haircut? Last month, when I went for a short shag. Love it! I’m usually a once a year haircut girl, but I’ve changed my hair, dramatically, twice this year already!
    8. Someone who changed your life? My husband, he made me a Mother, best change of my life!
    9. Your favorite healthy snack? An apple, jazz variety. Or a handful of Wheat Thins.
    10. Weekly goals: Do my Tracy Anderson DVD another four times, make a healthy grocery list, visit my Grandma, keep up with the no ‘poo thing, mop my kitchen floor!

  54. Elle says:

    Mood:
    Eh. I was crabby today due to some family drama (love ‘em but wish they’d just give advice and hold the judgment/crazy jumped-to conclusions) but I went to boxing class and I feel better.

    When did you first understand the meaning of heartbreak?
    I was 17 I think – the guy I was crushing on at work basically said ‘see ya’ for this waaaaay less cool girl. Sadness, but I’m over it (obvs…)

    What was your all-time favorite vacation?
    England, Scotland and Wales back in 2001. So glad I took that trip.

    Platform shoes: yea or nay?
    Erm, depends on the shoe’s design.

    Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones?
    Cups – less mess and you can eat more (in my opinion!)

    Would you rather text, call or e-mail?
    Call. I like the instant gratification of someone picking up the phone.

    When was your last haircut?
    February – I need to find another hairstylist though. Anyone know anyone good in the Chicagoland area??

    Someone who changed your life?
    My dog (RIP) Pumpkin. She taught me how to be patient and reminded me of how awesome popsicles are, and just showed me what unconditional love truly is.

    Your favorite healthy snack?
    How healthy is frozen watermelon? :)

    Weekly goals:
    Get enough sleep, try not to let others’ negativity bring me down (cliche, I know), buy flowers for myself, go for at least three runs this week, find some Jason Segel movies to watch (crushing hard). and get some jeans to the tailor to get hemmed (exciting!).

    email … I think that I may be the only person to say that – haha!

    2. When did you first understand the meaning of heartbreak? I was 5. I followed him around like a puppy dog, and I even showed up for his birthday. (In fairness, our parents were friends.) Then his brother and friends saw me, and locked me up in a tent. The only thing worse than getting my heart broken on that day was not realizing that I should’ve taken this as a sign for the 25 years that followed after that. :(

    3. What was your all-time favorite vacation? It’s a tie – Paris and Rome in 2000, and NZ/Oz this year. Not so much for the sights than for the walks and subway rides in between, which have taught me a lot about how I can survive on my own.

    4. Platform shoes: yea or nay? HELL YES. Except for disco platforms and moon boots, because those things are ugly.

    5. Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones? Cups. I’m a messy eater when it come to cones.

    6. Would you rather text, call or e-mail? Call. Easier for me to have a convo that way.

    7. When was your last haircut? Late April, before leaving for Auckland. I’m growing it out now.

    8. Someone who changed your life? The person at the vet hospital who saw me crying over our sweet, loyal DogMei before he was put down. When we asked around about getting another dog, he mentioned that his neighbor had two puppies to give away… and before we knew it, we had two bouncy little boys in our back yard. He just saw the boys last year when we took them to the clinic, and he was so happy to see them healthy. Imagine what it would’ve been like if he didn’t bring the pups to us!

    9. Your favorite healthy snack? Fruit and crackers.

    10. Weekly goals: Get my social life back (sorry, Twitter), straighten out my lesson plans, write more to-do lists… and watch a few movies

    3. What was your all-time favorite vacation? Last summer, I spend a month in NYC for a school trip and went to most of the major art museums in the city. I had so much fun.
    4. Platform shoes: yea or nay? Nay. I am not the most coordinated person, so I tend to avoid heels and platforms. I mostly wear flats; I live in my orange Toms.
    5. Do you prefer ice cream cups or cones? I prefer eating ice cream out of a cup. It is just less mess overall.
    6. Would you rather text, call or e-mail? I would rather email because I am socially awkward over the phone. People continue to text me, but I haven’t learned to text. I don’t know if I want to learn how to text.
    7. When was your last haircut? Honestly, a year ago. I am low key about my hair; all I do is shampoo, condition, and use anti-frizz crème. I have a hair cut coming up soon in July.
    8. Someone who changed your life? My best friend from middle school that I have kept in touch with.
    9. Your favorite healthy snack? I love almonds. I eat them on my commute home from work, so when I get to dinner, I don’t eat too quickly.
    10. Weekly goals: I would like to work out three times this week and eat more fruit.
