Taking care of business

  1. Mood:
  2. Shockingly alert for a Monday morning. I better ride it while it lasts!

  3. Celine Dion power ballads?
  4. I appreciate her vocal abilities, but most of her songs leave me kinda empty.

  5. What is your least favorite vegetable?
  6. Okra, blech! That slimy sensation on my tongue? No, thank you.

  7. Plans for Thanksgiving?
  8. I’ll be in the East Bay with my folks.

  9. Eyes/lips/cheeks:
  10. I’m still at the lotion and pimple medicine stage of my morning, but I feel like tearing into Urban Decay’s Show Pony palette.

  11. Do you have any wardrobe pet peeves?
  12. So many! Most are because I’m small and short-waisted: 1) shirt sleeves and pant legs that are too long for my limbs, 2) button-up shirts with gaps in the front that show my bra (gotta tape ‘em shut!) and 3) dresses and tops that bunch up beneath “the girls.”

  13. Have you ever kept a makeup or beauty product that you initially purchased as a gift for someone else?
  14. A few times, LOL!

  15. Last yummy thing you prepared for yourself?
  16. Colcannon (a potato and cabbage dish), from a recipe in the Student’s Vegetarian Cookbook.

  17. Outfit:
  18. Jillian Michaels is about to kick my butt with her 30 Day Shred DVD, but I’m ready for her, thanks to my orange terry cloth shorts, purple tank top and gray sweatshirt. :)

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. To be thankful this week, to find a holiday sitter for Tabs, to prepare at least one totally new veggie meal for dinner and to keep chipping away at my filing project at home.

Question: Have you ever had a 14-pound cat leap onto your shoulder first thing on a Monday morning? LOL! Feels like I just got attacked by a puma.



Here’s to Monday, ladies! Let’s get the holidays off to a good start this week. Before you fill that second cup o’ joe, let me know how you’re doing. You know the drill. :) Just copy the list below, and paste it with your answers in the comments.

    Le list

    1. Mood: caffeinated… that’s a mood, right?

    2. Celine Dion power ballads? sometimes, when I need to feel sweeping emotion and melodrama…

    3. Least favorite vegetable? cooked cabbage. So glad to be a grown-up and make my own decisions about food. ;-)

    4. Thanksgiving plans? I’m bringing roasted paprika potatoes and possibly some pies to a church meal.

    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: Like 8 coats of mascara, and that’s pretty much it.

    6. Do you have any wardrobe pet peeves? Sigh… I have a waist and hips that make clothing designers assume I’ll have a decent rack, too. Instead, I wear a lot of juniors tops and few dresses.

    7. Ever kept a makeup or beauty product you actually bought for someone else? Ha! Yes!

    8. Last yummy thing you prepared for yourself? Coffee and oatmeal this morning, but I’ll be baking chocolate chip cookies later!

    9. Outfit: black knee-high boots, grey skinny jeans, black long-sleeve tee, zebra scarf, and my blue trench. It’s rainy today.

    10. Weekly goals: Get rid of a bunch of my stuff and start shipping my belongings cross-country.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Christina,

      Can I come over? I desperately need homemade chocolate cookies in my life!

      • Christina says:

        You are *always* welcome to a cookie… or five. But while I fed you cookies, I’d also be picking your brain about balancing laziness and the desire to beautify myself through makeup. ;-)

        • Karen says:

          Don’t think of it as laziness… think of it as being prepared. ;) You never know if you’re gonna run into destiny (or your ex) in the grocery aisle. Better to be rocking some gloss and concealer than ripped sweats and an upper lip hair ‘stash. (Sidenote: wouldn’t that previous sentence be an awesome fortune cookie?!?)

          • Christina says:

            Haha YES! I think a beauty-themed box of fortune cookies would make an awesome stocking stuffer.

            And you’re right… when I visit my family over the holidays, the *only* time I see people from high school is when I’m looking like I just escaped a two-week stint in a cave. Gotta work on that.

  2. Lisa says:

    1. Mood: tired, but looking forward to a break on Thursday and Friday!
    2. Celine Dion power ballads? I’m gonna go with ‘no’ on this one.

    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: UD Sin & Stila black smudge pot, chapstick, pink blush from Tart treasure chest
    6. Do you have any wardrobe pet peeves? Yes! People who think that leggings are pants! Also, wearing pajamas around outside of the house (except for small children).
    7. Ever kept a makeup or beauty product you actually bought for someone else? No
    8. Last yummy thing you prepared for yourself? Chicken and asparagus in lemon garlic sauce over pasta :)
    9. Outfit: Teal sweater, dark jeans.
    10. Weekly goals: Get a jump on my research project and get enough sleep :)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Lisa,

      Since you love veggies I have a question for ya! Do you have any idea what to do with parsnips? I saw them at the grocery store yesterday but have no clue what to do with ‘em.

      • Lisa says:

        Hmm… parsnips are a funny vegetable, aren’t they? I think they’d be good roasted or in some sort of stew. They seem like a very wintery veggie, so traditional winter cooking methods seem to fit (in my mind) :)

    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: 88 color palette in warm, MAC Angel on lips and Benefit Coralista on cheeks

      Hi Trude

      Your salad sounds so good. I think I’m going to try making it. What dressing do you usually use?

      • Trude says:

        We usually use a vidalia onion vinaigrette – you can get a giant bottle of it at Sam’s Club, my mom and I are addicted! We use it on everything – sandwiches, chicken marinade, etc. Sooo yummy. :) And during the summer we were using Persian cucumbers from the Farmer’s Market, but I think they’re out of season now.

    6. Do you have any wardrobe pet peeves? Ill-fitting jeans. I gained muscle in my thighs, so often jeans will fit fine around there, but at my waist, it’s way too loose. Or, everything is perfect, except the length because I’m short.

    7. Ever kept a makeup or beauty product you actually bought for someone else? Nah. If anything, I’d just buy another one for myself.

    8. Last yummy thing you prepared for yourself? Umm, does pouring milk over cereal count? Haha!

    9. Outfit: Still in my sleeping clothes! But I have to run errands later, so I’ll probably throw on some variation of jeans and a t-shirt. I have a band concert tonight, so I’ll be wearing all black for that. Like a funeral director, but sexier ;)

    10. Weekly goals: Work on the second draft for my screenplay (my teacher liked my first, so I don’t have to make too many changes, w00t), clean house. Oh, there’s a bone marrow donor sign up on campus on Tuesday, so I’ll make my way over there too.

    Hope you’re doing well, Karen! Say hi to Tabs for me.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Jen,

      I just gave Tabs a big kitty hug for you.

      BTW, I’m sooo with you on the bittermelon. I can’t stand it! Come to think of it, I don’t like it because it’s slimy like okra, ha ha.

      Wait… will you be playing in the band tonight? Or attending the concert?

  23. Kate & Zena says:

    1. Mood:
    Very, very tired from having a migraine all weekend.

    2. Celine Dion power ballads?
    Depends on the song.

    3. Least favorite vegetable?
    Tomatoes, wait, that’s a fruit. Anything that isn’t corn, green peppers or potatoes. I’m incredibly picky.

    4. Thanksgiving plans?
    Aunt’s house. Oh, joy. I get to spend it in a cramped formal dining room. Ich.

    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks:
    Grey eyeshadow, black eyeliner/mascara, standard cheeks, shimmery purpley-pinkey lipstick

    6. Do you have any wardrobe pet peeves?
    Skirts and jeans. I can never find them in my size, I always have to hem and take in my jeans and I can never find a decent length skirt in my size. They’re all microminis!!!

    7. Ever kept a makeup or beauty product you actually bought for someone else?
    Yep.

    8. Last yummy thing you prepared for yourself?
    Grilled cheese sandwich. I’m now out of cheese. :(

    9. Outfit:
    Purple thermal, white cami, dark blue jeans, Tribeca embroidered flats

    10. Weekly goals:
    Start typing and researching Gender & Sexuality Final on Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” music video, work on Children’s Lit chapter book essay, work on Children’s Lit final project (typing the first chapter of your own young adult novel), work on Social Psychology project, finish Social Psychology reflection papers (one 1/2 done and the other one is started), brush Zena at least once, try to not go psycho from all those essays, attempt to enjoy Thanksgiving break, paint my nails tonight as my Russian Navy mani has chips and two fingers have become unpolished due to picking at chips, get Zena’s toenails trimmed at the vet.

    Wow, typing all that down really shows how much stuff I have to do. Yikes!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Kate & Zena,

      Just tackle one thing at a time… you’ll eventually get it all done.

      Will Zena be coming with you guys to your aunt’s house for the holiday?

      • Kate & Zena says:

        Ha ha ha ha ha ha, no. Zena and my aunt’s Cocker Spaniel, Oreo, don’t get along very well. Oreo is a bit of a bully and about four pounds heavier (yet three inches shorter) than Z. Oreo is very mouthy and has paws that look like bear paws compared to Zena’s hare-like paws.

        Plus, if Zena gets wind via sniff of a hamster in the house, you know she’s going to terrorize that thing. Zena is a lean, mean, rodent hunting machine.

        • Karen says:

          Yikes! If I ever get a rabbit I’ll be sure to hide him/her from Queen Z. :(

          • Kate & Zena says:

            Rabbits are the worst thing to tantalize Zena with. That’s why we go through so many bunny squeaker toys! She’s killed dour bunnies since we adopted her! We don’t mind as we have a bunny overpopulation here (lack of predators here…only the occasional fox and red-tailed hawk), our only request is that the dead animals stay OUTSIDE the house. My dad (or my lil’ brother if my dad is unavailable) is the delegated rodent picker-upper. We females don’t do dead animals. She hunts squirrels, opossums (yet she barks at them when they play dead which is rather funny), groundhogs and rabbits mainly. She’s learned her lesson about skunks, thankfully.

  24. Stacie says:

    1. Mood: Meh. I’m off to work tonight and tomorrow night. But I’ll be charge nurse, so here’s hoping for a couple of good nights!

    2. Celine Dion power ballads? I’m not really into ballads, period. But occasionally her Titanic song gets stuck in my head out of nowhere, and it drives me insane!

    3. Least favorite vegetable? Ew, brussel sprouts! Ick! (And the husband loves them. Figures.)

    4. Thanksgiving plans? The husband and I are going it alone this year. I’m not great at coordinating that many dishes, so this should be interesting!

    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: Still bare faced, but I have a palette from Loreal that I haven’t used in a while, that has gold and aqua in it. I’ll probably rock that and Nars Orgasm blush, plus my new Kitten lip glaze.

    6. Do you have any wardrobe pet peeves? I have a big butt in comparison to my waist. So by the time the jeans fit my behind, they gap majorly at the waist, and I have no choice but to wear a belt. One day I will try having them tailored. One day…

    7. Ever kept a makeup or beauty product you actually bought for someone else? I don’t usually buy makeup as gifts. Too tempting! ;)

    8. Last yummy thing you prepared for yourself? Chocolate chip cookies from scratch.

    9. Outfit: Royal blue scrubs.

    10. Weekly goals: Get through cooking Thanksgiving dinner without stressing, not kill anyone at work (that includes coworkers, patients and their families), restrain myself from spending my entire paycheck at Sephora, and buy a new conditioner.

    Answer: As a matter of fact, I have had a 14 pound cat jump on my shoulder on a Monday morning! And a Thursday evening, and a Saturday afternoon… He’ll jump anywhere he can get to. I end up with scratches in the oddest places. In fact, I think he may be heavier than 14 pounds now!

  25. Tiffany says:

    Le list

    1. Mood: tired… it was a tough day at work
    2. Celine Dion power ballads? can’t stand her music
    3. Least favorite vegetable? okra for me as well! I also don’t like the texture of mushrooms.
    4. Thanksgiving plans?heading to the grandparents’ house in north georgia
    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks:kitten eyeshadow and lash blast mascara / nada / illamasqua blush in beg (aka, all my usual)
    6. Do you have any wardrobe pet peeves? I guess my shoulders aren’t high enough because I always have problems with tanks not fitting right because the strap parts are way too long :(
    7. Ever kept a makeup or beauty product you actually bought for someone else? I think only once :)
    8. Last yummy thing you prepared for yourself? pasta with lots of cheese!
    9. Outfit: a purple cotton sleep dress thingie
    10. Weekly goals: pack up my office for our move, also be thankful, make good progress on my class project

    • Karen says:

      Hi Tiffany,

      Sorry to hear your day was rough. Tomorrow will hopefully be better. :)

      I always have strap issues too, especially with dresses. Could you perhaps be short waisted?

      • Tiffany says:

        Thanks girlie! I have a crappy project at work right now and our offices are moving soon and everyone is kinda in panic mode.

        I actually don’t think so – I am 5-foot-7 and think my torso is pretty long. It’s like, the area from the top of my shoulders to my boobs isn’t long enough, lol. certain places are worse than others for me, like old navy. if it’s like a camisole or tank then the front will land below my boobs instead of covering them. so weird!

        love the new comment features, btw!!!!!!

        • Karen says:

          Oh, I see. I bet there’s a technical name out there for that. Wonder what it is…

          Anyway, I bet tops with adjustable straps are your friends!

          Forgive me if I’ve already asked you this, but what do you do?

          • Tiffany says:

            I’m a research assistant. Although most RAs work for a professor in an academic dept., I work for a research institute, so it’s actually like a real job, lol!

  26. Karen says:

    Hi Christina,

    No kidding! The fates are cruel that way. BTW, how did the cookies turn out?

    • Karen says:

      Hi Jana,

      Okay, so I totally hated raw onions until I had a Maui Onion. Have you ever heard of them? They are actually REALLY GOOD because they taste sweet. It’s the weirdest thing!

      Aww, the Bay will always be here! Hopefully you’ll come by and visit soon.

Do you have any wardrobe pet peeves? might sound a bit discriminatory, but i dislike overweight people trying to squeeze themselves into lululemon, than sitting at mcdonalds and scarfing down big macs. if they wear it to actually work out and be healthy, then kudos, but nothing makes me barf as quickly as a lazy slob who’s sitting in her too-small $100 groove pants at mcdonalds, stuffing herself full of trans and saturated fats.

      Hi Suri,

      Do you have any brands that you like that you know fit shorties well? I’ve noticed the short Old Navy Diva jeans are pretty good. BCBG tops, while expensive, also fit well.

    10. Weekly goals: Go home! Hopefully get a few important homework things done, but still have a good time and a bit of a vacation.

    Alsoooooo… I’m so excited to cut all my hair off on Saturday! I had to grow out my hair for a friend’s wedding, all the while wishing I could cut it to a pixie, and I finally get to do it!!!

  35. Karen says:

    Hi Tiffany,

    Oh, that’s cool. Do you like it? Is it interesting?

  36. Karen says:

    Hi Kate & Zena,

    You know what I’ve heard is good for de-skunking? Tomato juice!

    • Kate & Zena says:

      Actually, we didn’t use tomato juice. Tomatoes are absolutely one of the worst things you can give a dog aside from chocolate and grapes. Even in tiny amounts, tomato has been known to cause convulsions, lethargy, coma and death. Needless to say, that wasn’t coming near Zena.

      We called the vet when it happened and she told us to combine baking soda, vinegar and some plain ol’ soap, wait a few minutes and then rinse it off with lukewarm water. I can’t remember the actual ratios for each, but it killed the smell for sure. It’s only on her collar faintly so we’re debating whether we want to buy her a new one or throw it in the wash again.

  37. amy says:

    ohhh I have no idea that Tabs is 14 lbs. Do your arms get tired from carrying your baby? My cat is a girl and she is 10 lbs, a bit smaller but I get tired from carrying her. She is a big girl alright.

    1. Mood: A little better than recently.
    2. Celine Dion power ballads? Ouais, ca va, mais surtout en francais!

    4. Thanksgiving plans? No plans, I’m not in US.
    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: MAC Et tu, Bouquet?, Cranberry, Shadowy Lady, Of Summer / Secret Crush See Thru & Jingle Jangle DG / Summer Rose BP
    6. Do you have any wardrobe pet peeves? One of the biggest must be the fact that people seem to loose their clothes (= wear really skinny ones) when the summer comes, regardless the temperature or, most importantly, their body! You can see enourmous bare thighs saturated with cellulite…! Yak!
    7. Ever kept a makeup or beauty product you actually bought for someone else? Nope.
    8. Last yummy thing you prepared for yourself? I live in nutritional carseration! Can’t eat anything with milk products = anything yummy, like cakes, ice cream, cheese, most “normal” food : (((

    10. Weekly goals: trying to avoid the pig flu that finally arrived at my work place

  39. Karen4 says:

    Hi Karen! Yes, I’m pretty good with turkey and everything else. I’ve been preparing Thanksgiving dinners for over 10 years for my family. I use Reynolds baking bags (turkey sized ones!). The bird comes out really moist and falls off the bone, which would be trouble if you’re into the “presentation” turkey ;0)

    8. Last yummy thing you prepared for yourself? I bought a huge load of bad smelling french chesse, baguette and white wine and watched TV whil enjoying the gorgious cheese.

    9. Outfit: Woolshirt with matching scarf, Moncler downvest, jeans.

    Oh no, I’m a day late! =(

    Mood:
    I’m pretty cheerful and awake considering that 1) I only slept for 4 hours, and 2) I have a 10 hour work day today! I promised myself to be in a good mood this week since it’s Thanksgiving!

    Celine Dion power ballads?
    Only “My Heart Will Go On”!

    What is your least favorite vegetable?
    I love all veggies but tomatoes. I HATE tomatoes.

    I’m spending it with one of my girl friends, and we’re making Haitian food!

    Eyes/lips/cheeks:
    Eyes: Paul and Joe Pearl Powders #01 and #002, the crease color from the Maybelline Natural Smokes quad, Bourjois brown Liner Clubbing liquid liner, L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black mascara.
    Cheeks: Bobbi Brown Blushed Rose Pot Rouge
    Lips: Paul and Joe Lipstick #31, with Lipgloss #10 over it.

    Do you have any wardrobe pet peeves?
    Button-down shirts that gap on me because my bust is too big, jeans that gap at the waist because my waist to hip ratio is weird.

    Have you ever kept a makeup or beauty product that you initially purchased as a gift for someone else?
    Way too many times lol!

    Last yummy thing you prepared for yourself?
    I don’t remember! =(

    Outfit:
    Dark blue Levi 231s, grey tank top under a red American Apparel henley.

    Weekly goals:
    To be grateful for EVERYTHING this week. To try not to spend too much on Black Friday. To enjoy the Deadmau5 concert I’m attending tomorrow. To sit down and make a huge list of everything I want to do before the year is up!

  42. Abby says:

    1.Mood:
    sorta meh. not like myself! i just need to shake out of it.

    2.Celine Dion power ballads?
    I just love the way she “dances.” its soooo funny!! but I concede that she has one of the best singing voices….she’s in my holy triumvirate with Whitney and Mariah. Just phenomenal.

    3.What is your least favorite vegetable?
    lima beans! what the heck ARE they, anyway? (beans, yes, but BLECH!)

    4.Plans for Thanksgiving?
    drive out to East County to visit a dear friend who is in rehab for alcohol. He is a GEM of a person and has really struggled this year. I need to make sure he knows his friends all still support and love him.

    5.Eyes/lips/cheeks:
    Eyes: MAC Nylon inner corners and highlight brow, MAC Trax in outer v, MAC creme liner in dark brown applied with Sonia Kashuk bent eyeliner brush, CG Volume Exact masc in black/brown, cheeks have a rosewater stain from The Body Shop that was disc.’d and I’m so sad. It rocks. Instead of being reddish or pinkish, it’s more wine colored….so much more flattering on me.

    6.Do you have any wardrobe pet peeves?
    uncomfortable layers: a button-up, collared shirt under a sweater will literally drive me insane. (LOL). I also hate too-long pants, itchy sweaters, and anything made of 100 percent polyester.

    7.Have you ever kept a makeup or beauty product that you initially purchased as a gift for someone else?
    no…but that’s just because I’ve never ventured into the “buying makeup for other people” territory. One day, one day!

    8.Last yummy thing you prepared for yourself?
    a huge omelette with everything that I love (swiss, mushrooms, green onions, peppers, onions). i need to get better about preparing yummy stuff!

    9.Outfit:
    black suit and heels. (hey, I’m at work. what can I say?)

    10.Weekly goals:
    To get organized! (paperwork, coupons, etc…I need to get my “paper” life in check). I also just realized I need to take more time to prepare yummy meals for myself. (hey living alone is hard…there are some nights you can convince yourself that a box of Fiddle Faddle *totally* passes for dinner).

    Hey, Karen, ya know what else? I think Tabs is wearing that bee-tie that I’ve been seeing for months at a certain box store? Hmmm? I have almost bought it for Mikey about a thousand times. Does Tabs mind it at all….i.e. does he try to remove it, or does he, too, realize how cute he looks wearing a bee tie? =)
