  1. Mood:
  2. Happy

  3. What are you looking forward to most this week?
  4. Visiting the Bliss Spa in San Francisco later this week with my friends Jen and Cindy. I haven’t been to a spa in years! I’m looking forward to catching up with the girls and nibbling on brownies…

  5. Describe your pet(s).
  6. Last summer a chubby, affectionate tabby cat adopted me. Some might say I stole him from a neighbor, but whatevs. I think it was meant to be. He was covered in fleas, had tapeworms and wasn’t wearing a collar, so I think he was looking for a life change.

    “SMT (single male tabby) seeks nice girl for wet food, long afternoon naps and heavy petting.”

    He still has a penchant for losing collars (the area around our apartment must be littered with ‘em).

  7. Did you wear braces?
  8. Yup, from middle to high school. They even made me wear a retainer.

  9. Eyes/lips/cheeks:
  10. Today’s about the Benefits. On my eyes I’m wearing Benefit Creamless Cream Shadow in Samba-dy Loves Me, Velvet Eyeshadows in Leggy and Where There’s Smoke, Bad Gal Waterproof Liner and Bad Gal Waterproof Mascara.

    On my lips, I’m going with Thrillin’ Brazllian, and it’s Posie Tint on my cheeks.

  11. Favorite city?
  12. I pick two: San Francisco and Paris.

  13. Hairy dudes: hawt or not?
  14. Hmm, it depends… I’m cool with moderately hairy arms, legs and chest, but back or bootay hair? — not so much. Wax that shizz off, homie!

  15. Do you have a green thumb?
  16. I’m pretty good with plants, except for cacti and violets. At one point I even played with the idea of botany as a career.

  17. Outfit:
  18. Jeans and a light blue t-shirt.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Keep my desk tidy (it’s not bad right now), clean the kitchen, go to dance class at least once, find a new place to live that’s not too expensive and avoid procrastinating!

Do you ever have one of those mornings when breakfast kinda blows your mind? I just had a bowl of Rice Crispies with sliced bananas, and for some odd reason it tasted like the BEST bowl of cereal, ever.

I may need to get out more. :)

It’s Monday yet again, my lovely PYTs. Before you get swept away by work and responsibilities, take a second to touch base. Just copy the list below and paste it with your answers in the comments.

Let’s make this week a good one for us all!

  4. redhead says:

    Mood: Happy! My sister just made us home fries, yum :D

    What are you looking forward to most this week? My voice lesson. I didn’t have one last week because my teacher’s husband had emergency surgery for pains in his abdomen which turned out to be an internal problem in his intestines, of which the scientific name escapes me. No voice lessons for a week really got my voice a-jonesin’ for some exercise!

    Describe your pet(s). My dog Barkley is a VERY hyper forever-a-puppy 14-year-old springer beagle spaniel. My kitten Delilah is a black, white and grey American shorthair with gray tiger markings. She’s tiny, but SO cute! She curled up next to me in my bed last night and slept there :D Carmen, my Spanish kitty, is all black with bright orange eyes that switch to green, and we’re pretty sure she’s schitzuphrenic (sp?) ‘cuz she drags her legs when she walks, her eyes are always wide and her tail is always straight up! Lulu (full name Lulubell) is a fat, southern white cats with flame tips and baby blue eyes. She’s a real prima donna around the other cats.

    Did you wear braces? I still have them, but I get them off in late fall.

    Eyes/lips/cheeks: Nothing until I take a shower for my piano lesson today. Yesterday, however, I wore coral eyes with Paradisco and Passionate on my lids, Nylon to blend above the crease and Satin Taupe in the crease, Graphblack technakohl smudged on the upper lashline and lower waterline/lashline, topped with Satin Taupe and finished with Maybelline Full ‘n’ Soft on my lashes. I had TBS’s Shimmer Puff in Sunset Peach (coral) on my cheeks with bronzer to contour, and bare lips.

    Favorite city? The Big Apple! When time and performing arts career permit, I’m going to move to someplace near NYC so I can be within an hour’s distance without the hassle and expense of living there.

    Hairy dudes: hawt or not? As long as he’s not a walking rug, it’s hawt!

    Do you have a green thumb? Not really.. I leave that to my mom, who has a GIANT green thumb! She’s currently cultivating Don Juans, which are ruby-red, extremely fragrant roses.

    Outfit: PJ’s :D Yesterday I wore a coral-salmonish red spaghetti strap tank with Old Navy tight denim short shorts, which is where I drew the inspriation for my coral FOTD.

    Weekly goals: Stop procrastinating and do my summer book report before I have to return the book to the library!

  5. Mood: Hyper and giddy, maybe because of my coffee

    What are you looking forward to most this week? Hubbie comes home Thursday from being away. And I have Thursday and Friday off for the 4th holiday!

    Describe your pet(s). Oh boy you asked for it! I have a 15 year old male Border Collie/Aussie mix named Chase. He’s mostly white with huge brown spots. My hubbie adopted him as a pupppy in Hawaii when he lived there, so he’s Hawaiian! I have a 5 year old female Tabby (think Tabs but darker and smaller) named Squirt with a bent, gimpy arm (she was born that way). I have a 4 year old ridiculously fat orange/white Maine Coon named Sammy. He’s 18 pounds and the sweetest most loving cat on earth with a meow that you can barely hear. Then finally I have a 3 year old orange Maine Coon mix named Chewbacca. He’s the bravest most fearless cat I have ever met and I am madly in love with him, but he could care less about me most of the time, sigh.

    Did you wear braces? Oh man did I! I got them around age 8 and had them until age 13. I also had neckgear! After the braces came off I had retainers for about 5 years!

    Eyes/lips/cheeks: Urban Decay Baked ES and liner, MAC Blankety lipstick and MAC Coygirl blush

    Favorite city? London

    Hairy dudes: hawt or not? NOT but I don’t like ‘em waxed and plucked either, yuck

    Do you have a green thumb? Not really, my mom stole all the green thumb talent from me!

    Outfit: Blue/white railroad pants from Gap, black Gap cami and purple Gap cardigan with Greek style sandals. Good lord I really have a ton of Gap stuff!

    Weekly goals: Not melt from this heatwave, go to gym FOR REAL and balance checkbook

    • Karen says:

      Hi Vampy Varnish,

      So, you’re gonna totally laugh but whenever I go to the bookstore I LOVE reading Cat Fancy magazine. They have a special issue right now on the stands called Kittens: USA and I read a story on Maine Coons. They seem like really nice kittehs! I’m thinking Tabs will be needing a sibling soon. :)

    Mood: Better now than when I first woke up…

    What are you looking forward to most this week? Having Friday off work for the holiday weekend!

    Describe your pet(s). I have 4 pets, 2 cats and 2 dogs. My cats are also chubby – the vet called them “cat obese” at some point – but they have great personalities. Thank God they aren’t trying to date, haha. My dogs are adorable, in my opinion. Miller is large and tan, best guess is a hound mix but I’ll never be sure since they are both rescue puppies. Pepper is a medium sized black chow-chow (again, a guess) mix. I think they should be featured in some sort of dog calendar :)

    Did you wear braces? Yep, but only for a year in 3rd grade

    Eyes/lips/cheeks: MAC Hello Kitty eyeshadows (mix of a few), Rosebud salve on the lippies and NARS orgasm on the cheeks

    Favorite city? Santorini, Greece or Dublin, Ireland

    Hairy dudes: hawt or not? A little hair is best. Too much is scary, but so is an overly groomed “aerodynamic” metro dude is probably worse!

    Outfit: Eh, boring “I woke up late” work clothes – black button down, heather grey slacks from Express and black heels.

    Weekly goals: Get info from mortgage guy for our new house process (yay!), focus focus focus at work to accomplish everything before the fun holiday weekend begins. And yes, I realize that I’m failing that second goal already by filling this out. Boo!

    What are you looking forward to most this week? My apartment is supposed to close on Thursday!
    Describe your pet(s). Well Missy Tabs, the little female is this very skinny long legged beauty while her brother Bear is this talkative softer-than-cashmere adventurer. Last but not least is Punkun, our littlest orange kitty who must have just hit puberty because now he’s all hissy and sharp. :(
    Did you wear braces? Yeah, freshman year through sophomore year of high school.
    Eyes/lips/cheeks: Nothing yet but trying out the Korres primer today!
    Favorite city? Ooh…San Luis Obispo always seems so much fun.
    Hairy dudes: hawt or not? It can be hawt if it doesn’t look like a PELT.
    Do you have a green thumb? I’d like to think so :)

    Weekly goals: be frugal and smile

  13. marmar says:

    Mood: Irritated. My boyfriend went ahead and agreed to a possible apartment we were looking into but were on the fence about. How do I know? He “shoots” me an email at work letting me know he called them and said we’d take it. Cripes!

    What are you looking forward to most this week? The week being over.

    Describe your pet(s). An-almost 2 y/o black bombay. My boyfriend saved him from the “death penalty”- he was rejected by breeders because he has a white mark on his chest and was sickly when we brought him home. Almost two years later he’s a hyper active and healthy little troublemaker. He’s my special little guy.

    Did you wear braces? No.

    Eyes/lips/cheeks:
    ~ boots hydrating eye cream
    ~ pixi eye brightener
    ~ MAC just a pinch gel blush
    ~ urban decay mai tai gloss
    Basic today.. I had like two seconds to roll outta bed and get to work.

    Favorite city? Portland, ME or Yokohama, JP.

    Do you have a green thumb? Only when I’m painting.

    Outfit: Sloppy. Black polo shirt, pin striped pants and black heels.

    Weekly goals: Figure out how to be productive and get this week over asap.

  14. Beth says:

    Mood: Pretty happy, but tired. Long day at work and very weird weekend.

    What are you looking forward to most this week? The weekend! LOL. Really though, probably a couple of Too Faced palettes I ordered arriving.

    Describe your pet(s): We seem to have ended up with a cat not unlike Tabs. She started living in our greenhouse and now we feed her. She seems to be shedding fur like crazy at the moment, so we’re keeping her outdoors for now but come winter we’ll have to figure something out so she doesn’t freeze to death!

    Did you wear braces? No.

    Eyes/lips/cheeks: It was too hot for makeup this morning. I went with lipbalm and sunscreen today, that was it.

    Favorite city? I really like Seattle, L.A. was fun and London is cool if you’re not trying to actually do anything because tourists have a tendency to get under your feet!

    Hairy dudes: hawt or not? Same as you, within reason its fine but I’m not looking to date a chewbaccalike!

    Do you have a green thumb? No! Not at all. I’m alla bout the fresh cut flowers. They’re already dead, so no guilt involved!

    Outfit: Coral t-shirt, silver grey skirt and gold flip flops. In hindsight I could have made a better shoe choice!

    Weekly goals: Try and stick with the diet. Stretch every day for at least 10 minutes. Actually do something with the beauty blog I’ve just started. Figure out You Tube so that I can do better video blogs for the beauty blog and my own personal blog.

    I hope you’re having a great day!

    Mood: “Hungover”- I say it like that because I didn’t do anything at all yesterday. So I’m hungover from doing nothing ;) I stayed in my AC-powered home, since it was about…108 degrees yesterday? Bah! I only went out twice to take the trash out and let my dog out to do her business…and that was enough!

    What are you looking forward to most this week?: Short week!!!! I have Friday off to kick off the 4th of July. And of course I’m looking forward to BBQs, family and sparklers!

    Describe your pet(s): In one word: BRAT. Cinnamon is an “only child,” so to speak, and she takes advantage of it. She gets what she wants. When she wants it. But, I do have to say even though she can definitely be bratty, she is a very sweet, well behaved dog :)

    Did you wear braces? Never!!! My dentist never seemed to need for me to have them. And I’m very grateful :D

    Hairy dudes: hawt or not? Normal body hair I don’t mind, but if he has Austin Power-rug-hair….then…there might be a problem…

    Outfit: Brown/Tan skirt from Ann Taylor, Brown top.

    Weekly goals: Do anything possible to make this 4-day work week fly by ;)

    Mood:
    chipper! passed the class in espanol!

    What are you looking forward to most this week?
    Umm, nothing in particular. Just a boring week filled with commerce law books.

    Describe your pet(s).
    Aw, on that subject I can talk for days. She is a 13 year old cat, mix of persian and domestic cat with stone gray and white fur (and has a face like a little cute batman, even her nose is half pink half black). She is very very talkative, impossibly moody, extremely bossy, way too intelligent and always feisty. She’s been with me (or vice versa, I just can’t say that ‘ I have owned her’, since no one can own cats) more than half of my life, and it has been a wonderful adventure so far. And her name is Maca.

    Did you wear braces? Oh yea, 5 years during high school. And I think there are altogether 2 photos of me to prove that.

    Eyes/lips/cheeks: Eyes- Lancome Kohl in black smudged to frame my eyes, with a bit of some olive green kohl (have no idea which brand) just to give a greenish sheen, Diorshow iconic mascara in black/ Cheeks- Chanel blush (I think the colour is Caprice) with a bit of my favorite blush by Bourjous in rose d’or ( perfect rose with a lot of gold sheen) / Lips-nothing, just the usual burt’s bees.

    Favorite city? Cannot possibly choose. My hometown of Split/ NYC / London.

    Hairy dudes: hawt or not? A bit is tolerated, evermore preferred, but Chewbaccas are so out of the picture.

    Do you have a green thumb? Hell no. Everything that’s green and needs watering dies with my touch. Even the cactuses. I don’t know why, I do take care of them!

    Outfit: Skinny jeans, camper shoes, white graphic T, red short trench, olive green scarf

    Weekly goals:To not die of boredom?

    Eyes/lips/cheeks: Lips- Bare; Cheeks- Chanel Orchid Rose; Eyes- MAC Bare Study, Chanel Liberty, The Brown in Chanel Nymphea and Covergirl Colossal
    Favorite city? Atlanta Maybe?
    Hairy dudes: hawt or not? EW
    Do you have a green thumb? not sure… I want to find out though!

  23. Gracie says:

    Mood: Ehhh…happy but very tired. I’ve been going to bed late and waking up late a lot in the past few days.

    What are you looking forward to most this week? My planned MAC trip this weekend =) I’m planning on getting my greedy hands on the 182 buffer brush and a new MSF natural for the summer!

    Describe your pet(s). I have an ADORABLE almost-five-year-old (his birthday is July 1st!) Shih Tzu named Sammy! He basically has two personalities, a hyper crazy puppy personality where he barks and runs around in circles till he flops unconscious, and his lazy old man personality. But i love him no matter how many times he pisses me off, barking till he gets his treat, because he’s my little baby. I got him when he was a tiny little 2-week year old puppy. He ways about 15 pounds (he’s a frickin huge Shih Tzu!), he has white fur with brown spots and a little bit of black on the tips of his ears, and we keep his hair short, not rediculously long with a bow (yuck :P).

    Did you wear braces? Yup, once for 8 months then again for another year

    Eyes/lips/cheeks: Nada, this is one of my lazy days where I do absolutly nothing (no, I don’t have a job)

    Favorite city? Hmm, this is a tough one. I have a three way tie: Portland, Oregon (the city I live in!! woot), Beijing, China (went there last May, It’s AMAZING!) and NYC. I haven’t really gotten a feeling for New York cuz I was only there for about 6 hours because I had a lay over on a flight to Maine, but for the time I was there, I practically fell in love!

    Hairy dudes: hawt or not? Eh not.

    Do you have a green thumb? Nope, I’m not really a plant person, and you’d think the opposite because I live in one of the greenest cities on the planet.

    Outfit: P.J’s! I don’t have to go anywhere, so I might as well be comfortable.

    Weekly goals: Brush my teeth more (hehe been kinda skimping on that), do something other than sitting around, get to MAC (won’t forget hopefully!), make my way to the gym amd try to eat healthier.

    Have a wonderful week Karen, and I’m really jealous you get to go to a spa! :)

  24. Kate & Zena says:

    Mood:
    Awake and feeling pretty okay.

    What are you looking forward to most this week?
    The beautiful weather, of course.

    Describe your pet(s).
    A week after my previous dog passed away, my mom went looking for Rat Terrier puppies as she wanted a Rat Terrier. When she entered Pecatonica’s website, she saw Zena’s picture and that she was up for adoption. It was an instant love connection. My mom called Ms. Cindy up and after numerous phone conversations and e-mail conversations, Ms. Cindy choose us to adopt Zena. Zena was still mourning a bit as she had a puppy that died of congenital defects hours after birth. My parents drove 3.5 hours each way (7 all together) to bring Zena home.

    The best way to describe Zena is a terrier with an ‘off’ button. She’s stubborn as a mule with training, rodent hunting, pillow flinging, bed messing, squeaker toy destroying fiend. At the same time, she’s insanely sweet, affectionate and loves cuddling up to you yet can cheer you up with her lovable antics. She’s terrified of thunderstorms and she’s spoiled rotten. She’s impossible to fully describe without meeting her! Yet, we love her immensely. She fit seamlessly into my family from the first day we brought her home. It’s hard to believe she’s only been here exactly two years and five days! It feels like we’ve had her all 5.5 years of her life!

    Did you wear braces?
    Yes, twice.

    Eyes/lips/cheeks:
    None at the moment.

    Favorite city?
    That I’ve visited? I’d probably have to say Denver. It’s perfectly planned and not too big with the skyline mimicking the Rocky Mountains behind it. I would say Bamberg, Bavaria, Germany but that wouldn’t be fair as I don’t really remember my 2.5 years there (I was born there). That too had a mountain skyline.
    That I haven’t visited? I’d probably say Rome or Paris or Edinburgh or London…you get the picture.

    Hairy dudes: hawt or not?
    Not.

    Do you have a green thumb?
    Ba ha ha ha ha ha, no. The only plants I manage to keep alive aside from cut bouquets for more than a month are bamboo and bonsai trees. My bonsai is pretty dead. It lived a good four years (a record, I assure you).

    Outfit:
    Cherry printed short-sleeve and shorts set pajamas.

    Weekly goals:
    Visit the psychiatrist. Blech. I don’t wanna see him!

    Describe your pet(s). Scoobysnax is a blonde long haired chihuahua. He’s a very loyal pet, always following me around. I call him my little shadow. He also loves for me to carry him around. He rests his head on my shoulder, it’s the sweetest thing. My mom says she wishes she could find a man who looked at her the way Scooby looks at me, lol. She say’s there’s total adoration in his eyes :)

    Did you wear braces? Yeah, and glasses. So I got to hear all the bad “jokes” in Jr. High.

    Eyes/lips/cheeks: I just woke up about an hour ago (darn night shift), and have yet to even shower, let alone apply makeup.

    Favorite city? London

    Hairy dudes: hawt or not? I’m okay with a socially acceptable amount of hair. Everyone’s got it, so what, right?! But if I can see it from several feet a way or it’s in abnormal places… It has to go honnay!

    Outfit: Lucky jeans, a brown v-neck from F21/Charlotte Ruse (one of those!), and wedges from good ol’ Payless!

    Hi Karen! I haven’t commented much over the past couple of weeks since I’ve been traveling, but I’m still around. :)

    Le list

    Mood: Tired. Is that a mood? I’ll say unmotivated.

    What are you looking forward to most this week? Finding out how soon I can get my student loan.

    Describe your pet(s). I had a boy cat named Pelusa (means lint in Spanish) a few years back. He was so awesome. I could go on and on about him, but in the interest of brevity I’ll only mention that he looked like a little gray ball of lint with two blue marbles for eyes when I got him. Le sigh.

    Did you wear braces? I did when I was eleven for about nine months. I lost my retainer soon thereafter and never replaced it so my bottom teeth kind of got crooked again.

    Eyes/lips/cheeks: No makeup today. Stayed home and did laundry all day.

    Favorite city? I’m going to pick two as well: Valparaiso, Chile, and as of last week, Portland, OR.

    Hairy dudes: hawt or not? I used to not be attracted to hairy men when I was younger but now I find moderately hairy men to be sexy (as long as there’s no back hair!). I don’t care for a shaved chest.

    Do you have a green thumb? Not really, but I try and I’m getting better. My mom is a botanical genius who can keep orchids blooming year round. I didn’t inherit her talents.

    Outfit: Pale orange ruched tee, dark denim bermudas and dark brown flat sandals.

    Weekly goals: To figure out what’s going on with my student loans, get all packed and ready to go visit my mom for two weeks, and oh yeah, to not miss my flight. :)

    Describe your pet(s). Well…the ones I grew up with I’ll describe first. We have five left–all mini-dachshunds except one who is a toy. The first one, and oldest, is the mother of 3 and named Misty. She’s a rusty color and a rascal. The second one is unrelated to them, black, and really fat and named Precious. Third is fat but meaty fat with a rusty hair color with the name of Bandit. He’s likes to protect, so he thinks. The fourth is athletic and black with the name of Blackey. He’s a lover. The last one has the funniest name. He also happens to be the smallest of them with the worst breath. Poot ‘n Toot. XP
    Did you wear braces? never
    Eyes/lips/cheeks: eyes have lancome all over them–not sure what names are but they’re browns with a green. Lips are blank. Cheeks have CoverGirl Cheekers blush in a peach color. Also have bronzer and MAC’S blot powder.
    Favorite city? Edinburgh, Scotland.
    Hairy dudes: hawt or not? not
    Do you have a green thumb? no
    Outfit:It’s a mix and not a good one (just got home and put on shorts). Have a pretty red top on with clear sequins on the V-neck drawing attention. Then, instead of my jeans, I now adorn a pair of athletic black shorts.

    Describe your pet(s). We have two. We have a red, short tail Taiwanese breed female. She’s named Beans and I rescued her 4 years ago. She is really sweet tempered and she rarely barks.

His name is Pi dan ( it’s the name of a kind of egg here in Taiwan )Right now he keeps trying to hump Beans but she is much taller then him so he keeps sneaking up behind her when she’s lying down. He’s getting “fixed ” next week!

    They have lost a little weight but I’m sure they are still eligible for “Biggest Cat Loser”!!!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Jess,

      Aww! I guess there’s just more of them to love.

      I like to think Tabs’ chubbiness is due to the longer hairs on his tummy. They give the illusion of his belly hanging low… or so I like to think. :)
