Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Oct. 3

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. 188. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. To quote Nina Simone, “I’m feeling good,” even though I got a late start. I went for a run this morning (endorphins, yay!), straightened out the papers on my desk and have a husky tabby at my feet. Things could be worse.

  3. Has a commercial ever brought you to tears?
  4. Man, that Dolphin Tale commercial had me bawling like a baby the first time I saw it. In my defense, I was totally PMS-ing at the time.

  5. Something you’ve lost and would like to get back?
  6. Um, my sanity?

  7. When was the last time you thanked someone with a kiss?
  8. Last night. El Hub made me a cup of Sleepytime tea to drink while we watched Win Win on the couch. Both the movie and the tea were great. :)

  9. Three good things about your life right now?
  10. 1) I’m healthy, 2) my loved ones are healthy and 3) a DSW Shoe Warehouse just opened in my ‘hood (and it’s only five minutes away!). Yesterday I brought home the boots up at the top (the Fallen boot by Fergie) to reward myself for sticking to my September workout schedule, since the Blowfish Brandi boots I’d originally wanted were out of stock.

  11. What store would you like to see open in your town?
  12. Well, I’m pretty happy about the DSW, but a Neiman Marcus or an Ulta would be welcome additions to the area.

  13. If you were a type of makeup, what would you be?
  14. Gloss, fo’ sho’! It’s flexible, shiny and sparkly.

  15. First trip you remember taking on an airplane?
  16. I was 11 or 12 at the time on a flight to visit my childhood best friend, whose family had recently moved from next door down to Southern California. About the flight I remember thinking how cool it was that they gave out free nuts and soda.

  17. Three songs that remind you of different times in your life?
  18. Another Night, by The Real McCoy, reminds me of my clubbing days with Jen in the late ’90s; Don McLean’s Bye Bye Miss American Pie reminds me of the day I packed up and left for college; Aaliyah’s Are You That Somebody? transports me back to that magical second half of my senior year.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. This week I’m lifting my weekly goal from the movie I watched last night, Win Win. “Do whatever it f*cking takes.” LOL!

Mornin’! :) Can we coffee talk for a moment about shoe heaven, aka DSW? The only other DSW store I’ve ever visited was in San Francisco, and that one was really stressful and overstimulating (crowded, messy, and I could never find a place to sit and try on shoes).



This one’s greater than great though. The aisles are nice and wide, there’s plenty of places to park your bum, and there’s even a Starbuck’s and a video game store (to entertain significant others) next door.

Yeah, I’m in trouble…

      Hello, Nina!

      That actually sounds really amazing. What made you guys decide to unplug?

      Ahh… re: #9. I can’t see you as angsty!

      • Nina says:

        im glad to say i havent been angsty for a long long time! :-)

        it was something we had challenged ourselves to see if we could do it — no cellphones, no internet/computers and no tv for a weekend.

        it was a refreshing change — we focused on each other, on books and our furkids.

        • Karen says:

          That sounds really lovely. I’d like to try that sometime, but with a computer guy husband the chances of it happening are slim to none.

          I bet the fur babies really enjoyed it! Are they dressing up this year for halloween?

    2. Has a commercial ever brought you to tears? I’m not much of a cryer, but commercials have made me get tears in my eyes–they just don’t fall. Those ASPCA commercials with the sad animal faces get me the closest to crying.

Dusty Springfield’s “Son of a Preacher Man” reminds me of being 16 and my boyfriend at the time. “Cable Car” by The Fray reminds me of my first day at this current job. It came on the radio while driving to work and the “Everyone knows I’m in over my head” part felt really appropriate at the time. The Barenaked Ladies song “If I had a Million Dollars” song reminds me of dating my husband because he’s generous, funny and would totally buy me a monkey and build me a tree fort.

    10. Weekly goals: I’m planning to appreciate and take advantage of the unseasonably warm weather with my dogs.

    • Karen says:

    9. Three songs that remind you of different times in your life? “Fake Empire” by The National reminds me of when I first met my boyfriend, “Wicked Little Town” from Hedwig and the Angry Inch reminds me of graduating college and entering the “real” world, and “Just Like Heaven” reminds me of good friends from college.

    Thanks for the poll! I haven’t done it in a while, but I’ve missed it.

    • Karen says:

      Hey Ruchita,

      That entire Dido CD takes me back to a rough patch in my early 20s, too. I thought I was the only one…

    4. When was the last time you thanked someone with a kiss? Literally about 5 mins ago – the hubs unscrewed the filter thing on the washing machine that catches bits of fluff. I’d been fighting to get it open for days & only ever ask for help if it’s absolutely necessary :-)
    5. Three good things about your life right now? The hubs (not just b/c of the washing machine!); no financial worries; running a successful business. Can’t believe my luck.

    1. Mood: Pretty good, but nursing a sore back/shoulders (must have been that Firefly marathon I had going on all weekend).
    2. Has a commercial ever brought you to tears? Oh, yes, many have. I’m a total sucker that way. And trailers in the theater? Forget about it. Kleenex city.
    3. Something you’ve lost and would like to get back? My razor sharp memory!
    4. When was the last time you thanked someone with a kiss? Last night when one of the boys trudged up 2 flights of stairs to bring me a blanket. So sweet.
    5. Three good things about your life right now? Family and friends are good; work is good; soccer is almost done!
    6. What store would you like to see open in your town? Hmm, we’re kind of a backwater so I’ll be practical and say another grocery store. We only have one (about 7 miles away) and it could use some competition.
    7. If you were a type of makeup, what would you be? Mascara!! The super-thickening, extra lengthening, full on, dramatic kind. :)
    8. First trip you remember taking on an airplane? Yup, 18 years old and went to FL with one of my bffs on vacation.
    9. Three songs that remind you of different times in your life? Wow, only 3? :) Ride on Time (Black Box) reminds me of dancing with my friends, Wild Horses (Stones) because it was the first slow dance that the Hubs and I ever danced to, and Beyond the Sea (Bobby Darin) because it reminds me of singing and dancing around with the boys when they were first born.
    10. Weekly goals: Focus, focus, focus!

    • Karen says:

      Ahhh, BLACK BOX! I have that CD around here somewhere… good times, the ’90s.

      I didn’t know you were a Firefly fan! I love me some Captain Tight Pants. Do you watch him in Castle?

      • Kim says:

        Don’t you love those blast from the past songs?! :)

        I’m totally laughing about Captain Tight Pants. I love the Firefly cast; it’s such a fun show (I know tons of people are still bummed it was canceled). It’s funny you mention Castle. I commented earlier today that I caught a minute of it last night, for the first time. I couldn’t get over the time warp. After watching Tighty for a few days when he was 30ish, it was so weird to suddenly see him at 40. I’m sure he could still rock his Mal outfit, though. :) It also made me glad I’m not an actor. Looking at old pictures is bad enough – I wouldn’t want to see hours of film of my younger self, strutting around! HAHA!

        • Karen says:

          Did you watch the movie? If you haven’t I won’t reveal any spoilers… I will say that I cried buckets at the end. *tears*

          • Kim says:

            I did! I know; I loved both of those characters. I’d seen it when it first came out but watched it again last night (to much grumbling and sighing). :)

            I think I’m going to give Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog a whirl, next. I’ve never seen it and my Firefly-loving friend raves about it. I love Netflix streaming. :)

    2. Has a commercial ever brought you to tears?

    I’m sure you all know the one … Sad looking animals in cages, Sarah McLachlan singing “Angel”….. I just can’t. I have to change the channel.

    My fearlessness.

    Disneyland!

    9. Three songs that remind you of different times in your life?

    Scorpions’ Rock You Like a Hurricane, driving along the coast with my best friend. He would always blast this song.

    Work out the kinks on my nutrition plan, get back into regular exercise, and take time for some quiet time each day.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Heidi,

      Where did this rain come from? I knew it was on the horizon, but I didn’t expect it to get so cold, damp and dark so soon. It’s only a matter of time before the cats get fired up. I’m sure Tabs and Missy are already texting about the injustice of it all. ;)

      • Heidi says:

        I know! I had to go to the bank and Whole Foods this morning and it was just a light drizzle when I left the house. I got the bank taken care of (drive through ATM, yeah!), got into Whole Foods, and by the time I was ready to leave the store it was really coming down! Ugh!

        By the way, I tried the Kind bars this weekend and now I’m hooked! I picked up a few more flavors at Whole Foods that aren’t carried at Trader Joe’s. I’m looking forward to the one with the added protein.

        Missy came out to greet me when I got home. She stepped outside of the garage, got wet, then proceeded to run around the house at about 90 mph like a lunatic. She’s napping now.

        • Karen says:

          Yay! I’m so glad you like them. I also like the apricot bars with the yogurt, too. They’re great if I’m in the mood for a healthy, sweet treat.

          Been meaning to tell you thanks for recommending Tim Gunn’s book. I read it this weekend and really, REALLY enjoyed it. It couldn’t have come at a better time.

          Is it sunny there today? Tabs is already very excited about going outside for his walk.

          • Heidi says:

            Glad you loved the Tim Gunn book. He’s like the voice of reason in an industry full of cray cray!

            The sun keeps coming and going here today. Glad it’s not raining as are yard work guy is currently here. He’s got a lot of leaves to clear up.

            So, I’m waiting to hear confirmation about a job interview on Friday. I hooked up with an employment agency a couple of weeks ago and they seem very committed to helping me. They’re trying to get me set up for my first work assignment which would be for a couple of months. They’re going to let me know if the company in question wants to interview me. Things are finally progressing!

          • Karen says:

            Any word on the job interview yet? I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you!

          • Heidi says:

            Didn’t hear back today. They’re probably playing phone tag. I should hear something tomorrow.

          • Karen says:

            Keeping my fingers crossed!

My mom regularly took me to Dallas until I was 3 to see my dad while we lived in Vancouver.

Obvi, I know, but it reminds me of my trip to NYC, one I will never forget and undoubtedly repeat. 3) Dancing in the Dark. One of the first music videos my dad ever showed me. I’ve been hooked ever since…I bought him a Bruce Springsteen vinyl set for his bday! Always reminds me of being little and sitting on my dad’s knee on front of the computer.
    10. Weekly goals: Schedule in more time for BFF bonding!

  27. Melissa says:

    1. Mood: Happy! I left my favorite fountain pen on the podium in a giant lecture hall last week, but randomly decided to check the room today on the off chance it was there and it was! Though someone had used up all the ink… I’m so thankful I got it back.

    2. Has a commercial ever brought you to tears? A commercial/trailer for The Christmas Bunny got me all tearing up. I love bunnies so much and I’m super sentimental and emotional XD Any heartwarming family movies with an adorable animal will pretty much get me.

    3. Something you’ve lost and would like to get back? Heh… some of my self-esteem? College has really taught me to be resilient, but I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t gotten a little broken down along the way.

Believe by Cher (reminds me of crazy karaoke-ing times with my best buds), Total Eclipse of the Heart by Bonnie Tyler (reminds me of getting over my first break up), and Home by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes (reminds me of carpooling with my best friend to summer classes last year)

    7. If you were a type of makeup, what would you be?
    ~Hmmm…that’s a tough one. The bright yellow eyeshadow from Make Up Forever would describe the fact that I naturally have a happy, sunny personality. Never thought of makeup in personality terms until now.

    ~Disney World when I was 11.

  30. Emily says:

    1. Mood:
    Accomplished. One day down; four more to go.
    2. Has a commercial ever brought you to tears?
    LOL this question makes me think of Pam on this week’s episode of “The Office”. I’m such a crybaby, I;m sire I’ve been brought to tears by a commercial before–can’t think of any specific ones right now, though!

    8. First trip you remember taking on an airplane?
    Las Vegas wedding about ten years ago–I was the flower girl! :)

    • Karen says:

      Have a good week. :)

  31. Kate & Zena says:

    1. Mood:
    Tired. My Intermediate Algebra class sucked out ALL of my energy.

    2. Has a commercial ever brought you to tears?
    From sadness or laughing so hard? If it’s the former, no, but the latter, yes. I find the VW Passat commercial so cute and funny (the Star Wars one.) I find a lot of commercials funny.

    3. Something you’ve lost and would like to get back?
    My Benefit EyeBright pencil. I should admit defeat and just buy a new pencil. The Anastasia one that came with a $10 Sephora kit just does not do the same thing EyeBright does by a million years.

    4. When was the last time you thanked someone with a kiss?
    Yesterday. My momma paid for my eyebrow’s being tweezed because my allowance wouldn’t cover for it!

    5. Three good things about your life right now?
    Zena. Dr. Geroulis, the great and wonderful migraine doctor. Margarine (I went three days without my daily grilled cheese. I’m going nuts.)

    6. What store would you like to see open in your town?
    A MAC one. The nearest one is an hour and a half away. Or a Topshop.

    7. If you were a type of makeup, what would you be?
    Eyeshadow or nail polish. I’m a little crazy, love color and my moods can swing really easily, but I’m easily lovable. I’m shy, but I’m bold with my colors. Those two happen to be my two favorites. :)

    8. First trip you remember taking on an airplane?
    Spring Break of 2004. My choir went to Florida to perform at Disneyworld and Clearwater Beach. I cried the entire take off because I was so scared and anxious. I actually started the trip with bright perky pink nail polish and by the time I got to Florida, I had Dalmation nails from picking of and biting off the nail polish during the flight from anxiety. I had to buy a nail polish wipe and wipe off my nail polish. I learned an important lesson that day–never wear bright nail polish on a trip!

    9. Three songs that remind you of different times in your life?
    -”The Edge of Glory” Lady Gaga — High school graduation, even though it was in 2007. Never felt happier.
    -”My Heart Will Go On” Celine Dion — The year my dad went to Korea, this song dominated the radio (1998.) The song really told the story of my mom and dad at that point in time, so I cried when I hears this song a lot. I don’t cry know, but it still reminds me of this time.
    -”Hakuna Matata” Lion King — I had to pick this song because it’s just the song that describes the movie of my childhood. The Lion King was the movie that epitomizes the 90s and I was a 90s king! Hakuna Matata was a song that I sang forever and ever and ever. I drove my mom crazy with the song!

    10. Weekly goals:
    -Survive math!

    • Karen says:

      Hang in there, Kate. I know exactly how you feel about math… I found it very challenging!

      • Kate & Zena says:

        Oh God, math is so hard for me. I think it’s hard for a lot of people, especially women, but it’s super hard for me because I don’t actually see or comprehend numbers. I’m an image-based autistic so I see in images, colors, textures….not words and numbers. Math gets that much harder!

        The math I’m in is considered the second half of the algebra you supposedly took in high school. Um, no, I didn’t divide exponents and factor GCF in high school!!!! I come to school a half an hour before my class begins to get help with the problems I didn’t understand from my teacher. I’m surprised I haven’t driven my math teacher insane yet. He’s so far learned I didn’t learn my 12 multiplication tables well, I’m slow at fractions and bad at geometry, and I have no mental math skills! All in three weeks pretty much. Ha ha. XD

  32. Rachael says:

    1. Mood: Not so good, I’m sick. Boo.

    OMG the Fergie boots are my fave! Totally wore them all last fall/winter in the grey color. They are so comfortable, cute and everywhere i go i get major compliments on them. When people ask what brand they are i always laugh and say “Fergie” and they are in disbelief! Was at DSW a couple weeks ago and i totally picked them up in black as well! I am contemplating getting a second pair of the grey for back up….. hmmmmmm…… ;) Shoe addiction! Had to share… enjoy your new boots!

      I feel the same way! When I first saw that they were by Fergie I was like, “Fergie? Like Fergalicious?” LOL!

      I really, really love them. I wore them around yesterday and they were just so comfy. I’m kind of lemming the black pair now.

      Question for you — did yours fit true to size? I had to go a half a size up to 7.5.

    So late but I was kind of distracted @ work yesterday….so here’s Monday’s recap

    1. Mood: Okay…I was late to work but I got in & did what I’m paid to do. It just sucked because I didn’t get my morning workout in.

    2. Has a commercial ever brought you to tears? Oh yea. But then I’m just naturally emotional ::sigh:: but it was the State Farm commercial of all the kids singing Alicia Key’s “Empire State of Mind (New York)” to the firefighters in honor of 9/11

    3. Something you’ve lost and would like to get back? My belief in romance…so hard to find a good guy nowadays

    4. When was the last time you thanked someone with a kiss? A kiss on the cheek count? Cuz if so then my parents this past weekend for an awesome weekend just hanging out.

    5. Three good things about your life right now? I’m alive, my parents & brother are well, and I have a job.

    6. What store would you like to see open in your town? Ooo good question. I’m pretty lucky where I live…probably an H&M. I hear it’s a really good store for nice clothes and there’s none close to where I am.

    7. If you were a type of makeup, what would you be? Eyeliner. One of my favorite makeup products & it usually helps make eyes really POP.

    8. First trip you remember taking on an airplane? Oh boy umm probably to NY and I don’t know how old I was since I’ve gone every year since I was like 2. But my most memorable was my flight back from Canada. Half way home the entire trip was turbulance galore. It was the first time I was ever afraid of flying.

    9. Three songs that remind you of different times in your life? Anything by Backstreet Boys/*NSYNC transports me right back to elementary/middle school. OutKast’s “Hey Ya” puts me on a charter bus heading to Orlando w/ my junior class in hs. P!nk’s “Who Knew” reminds me of the moment I found out my dance teacher had died. I drove home for her funeral listening to that song on repeat.

    10. Weekly goals: I made it two weeks of consistent exercise and more focused eating! I’m excited! So my goal is to maintain that for this week by getting in my exercises @ least twice a day as well as straighten up my room and study.

    Hope you and everyone else is having an awesome week so far!!
