Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Oct. 31

Published in: Just For Fun, Spas


The jack-o-lantern I befriended at Jen’s house last night…

  • 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. 192. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. Really, really great for a Monday. I feel powered up! — like those few hours I spent relaxing with my girlfriends yesterday recharged my batteries.

  3. Your most memorable Halloween costume?
  4. Well, one year I dressed up as Veruca Salt from Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (the one from 1971), complete with paper-mache golden egg and everything. Not surprisingly, acting like a brat wasn’t much of a stretch, LOL!

  5. Who knows you better than anyone else?
  6. It’s a tie between El Hub and my mom…with Tabs coming in a close second.

  7. What’s the first thing you do when you get off work/out of school?
  8. If it’s still light out, Tabs and I will go for a walk. If it’s already dark, though, I’ll usually just start making dinner, or collapse on the couch.

  9. What’s the most awkward movie-watching experience you’ve ever endured with your family?
  10. Top Gun. I remember we rented the tape from the video store to watch at home, and during the lurve scenes my mom would tell my brother and I to “cover your eyes.” :)

    HAHA! I was only about eight or nine at the time, but I remember feeling sufficiently mortified.

  11. How many times have you been in love?
  12. Three.

  13. Which game show would you like to be a contestant on?
  14. The Price is Right because I’ve always wanted to play Plinko!

  15. If you have one, can you tell me about your fitness routine?
  16. Mostly running, spiced up with a Jillian Michaels DVD once or twice a week.

  17. Favorite Halloween trick or treat?
  18. Mini Snickers, please!

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. To remember to get up from my chair every so often and take a few walking breaks throughout the day, to get back on my diet again (I fell off the wagon and stress ate BIG TIME last week), to finish reading one book (any book), and to keep a positive attitude.

The past couple of Mondays have been a little challenging for me, what with the trip last weekend and my family visiting, but this week I should be able to get back to my regular routine (I need my routines).



Spending some time with Jen and Cindy yesterday certainly helped. We went to this place called The Spa Los Gatos down in the cute South Bay town of Los Gatos…

It was more like a day spa than a full-service place, so no special facilities or pools, but it was spotless, homey, and the staff made us feel welcome.

I really needed that deep-tissue massage… Jamilla, the spa technician who worked with me, had great energy, and despite being tiny, her hands could WORK! Homegirl was strong. I left with that loosey-goosey feeling, just totally blissed out. If you’re ever in the area, it’s a great place to unwind.

And because good energy is infectious, here are some virtual vibes:

(You have to touch the monitor to accept them… Just for a second.)

There. Transfer complete. :)

  11. Carmela says:

    1. Mood: Anxious. We were supposed to switch to a new cable/internet provider last weekend but the technician never came. We belatedly found out (after wasting half a day waiting) that they screwed up the order so no internet or tv till Saturday. Great excuse to finally finish several books, but I need a plan B for updating the blog.
    2. Your most memorable Halloween costume? A fairy princess? I badgered my mom about it for an entire year to make sure I got the “perfect” one. She ended up making it all from scratch for me. :)

    4. What’s the first thing you do when you get off work/out of school? De-stress! Maybe I’ll watch half an hour of tv or catch up on news and then it’s off to make dinner.
    5. What’s the most awkward movie-watching experience you’ve ever endured with your family? Hands down, Love Actually. It was such an awesome movie that us cousins, along with our Lolo, decided to watch it for Christmas. Ages ranged from 5-88. Everyone who’s already seen it (conveniently?) forgot about the porn stars in the film. Best part was when the iffy scenes came on and the cousins close to the tv would block the screen and fast forward a bit so the little ones wouldn’t get traumatized, my Lolo would always say: Get out, I’m watching!
    6. How many times have you been in love? Two.
    7. Which game show would you like to be a contestant on? Family Feud. Looks like fun. :D
    8. If you have one, can you tell me about your fitness routine? Treadmill at least 3 times a week and EA Active 2 for more motivation. (It’s silly, but I do enjoy the game and it gets me moving so I guess it does the trick!)
    9. Favorite Halloween trick or treat? Reese peanut butter cups! Or Kinder eggs.
    10. Weekly goals: Stay positive. Keep the hubby on track with his diet. Read at least 5 books in the downtime. Not to stress out over downtime. Try a new recipe for dinner.

    4. What’s the first thing you do when you get off work/out of school? put my stuff down, and either start dinner or sit on the couch to talk about my day with the boy. Also, sometimes I’m rushing out of the house right when I get home.
    5. What’s the most awkward movie-watching experience you’ve ever endured with your family? definitely Zach and Miri Make a Porno — thought it was more comedy than Porno.. was I proven wrong when we watched with my dad(and he was enjoying it — thought it was pretty hilarious).

Another is yoga. Then I try(and regularly fail) to do at least 2 nights of cardio — the boy is doing P90X, which has a couple days that I can join in on that are pretty cardio-tastic. I plan to get back into the Jillian Michaels though!

    We watch Star Wars every Christmas and my sister in law hates it, she complained the whole time and was frankly being a complete b. I was waiting on my dad to snap at her.

    6. How many times have you been in love? I thought I was in love once before, but it feels completely different than how I feel now. So simply one.

    7. Which game show would you like to be a contestant on? I would like to be on Jeopardy, I’m full of useless trivia and information. Or maybe Wipe Out. That one just looks fun.

    8. If you have one, can you tell me about your fitness routine? I don’t have one, but I do try to park farther away from where I’m going and take the stairs rather than the elevator. I also watch what I eat, gotta keep up with that especially since I’ve started the alteration on my dress.

    9. Favorite Halloween trick or treat? Marshmallow Peeps! I used to love these more when they were only for Easter, but now they have them for every season. I don’t eat as many as I used to (hello whole box in one sitting), but I still will fight my brother for them like when we were kids.

    10. Weekly goals: Finish the tablescaping, florist appointment, send out save the date cards, relax.

    2. Your most memorable Halloween costume? The year I was an angel. It got cold up here, and my mother insisted on a winter coat and tennis shoes.

    4. What’s the first thing you do when you get off work/out of school? Since I stay at home, I’ll say that when my husband comes home, I give him Tommy for a few minutes just so I can sit on the couch and get five minutes to myself. Then I get dinner going.

    7. Which game show would you like to be a contestant on? I think I could probably rock “Jeopardy!”.

    10. Weekly goals: Don’t eat all the Flavored Tootsie Rolls.

  17. Stephanie says:

    1. Mood:
    A little bit of everything.

    2. Your most memorable Halloween costume?
    We don’t celebrate Halloween over here but I’ll go with most memorable Carnaval costume, which is my snowwhite costume I had when I was 9. My mom made it for me and it looked exactly like the dress.. and not as fake as the ones you can get at a store.

    First thing tomorrow would that be.. Start with dinner I suppose.

    3. Who knows you better than anyone else? That’s a tough one. My fiance knows a lot but we’ve only been together a year and a half. My best friend Denise and my mom probably know the most. I’m a private person though so they don’t know everything.

I tend to like to run in nicer/not rainy weather, though I’m a distance runner, and I really need to get out every day, all the time, to get my wind up. If I have a free day, I do the push-ups and weights every morning like usual (and every night) and I like to kayak, hike, or do something outside that is physical.

    9. Favorite Halloween trick or treat? Actually not a huge fan of Halloween anymore, and candy makes my stomach upset, even one piece.

    2. Your most memorable Halloween costume? I was just telling my co-workers about a few … One year my mom either didn’t have the money or was just behind in getting all the materials together for a costume. She decided that she would buy a pumpkin trash bag, cut arm holes and leg hole and stuff it with newspaper. It was so big that I couldn’t see and fell off a neighbor’s porch into their bushes. Seriously.

    3. Who knows you better than anyone else?
    I would say my boyfriend. We have been together for 10 years, living together for 8 years and do everything together – EVERYTHING! Which causes me to believe that boyfriend doesn’t exactly express our relationship. Paramour, perhaps?

    Breathe a sigh of relief :)

    5. What’s the most awkward movie-watching experience you’ve ever endured with your family?

    Oy! That is a difficult question because, in retrospect, all of my past relationships never seemed like love. I would say twice.

    8. If you have one, can you tell me about your fitness routine?

    9. Favorite Halloween trick or treat?
    I love anything gummy!

    10. Weekly goals:
    Prep for my vacation, call my mother, make some delicious dinners!

Epic fail avoided.

    2. Your most memorable Halloween costume? I was Baby Bop when I was in kindergarten :3 It was just the most adorable costume ever. But the costume I wore to a party on Friday was “Ishizu Ishtar” an anime character. I recycled a costume I made for Comic-Con :3

    5. What’s the most awkward movie-watching experience you’ve ever endured with your family? Scary Movie…. I didn’t know it was a dirty parody of a bunch of scary movies ’cause I was only in middle school. What made it mortifying is that I didn’t understand half of what was going on and my mom would explain it in a deadpan sort of way. It was… odd XD

    6. How many times have you been in love? Once, but waiting for it to happen again with a better ending.

    7. Which game show would you like to be a contestant on? Who Wants to be a Millionaire!

    Smarties, Reese’s peanut cups, and Kit Kats. My favorite are the Kit Kats as they sort of have my two nick names in there. My grandpa has always called me Kates and my mom calls me Kit Kat after our favorite treat. Ha ha ha. XD

    1. Mood:
    A little sad that all the children in the neighborhood are teenagers. It’s 8:30. We’ve only had two groups of trick or treaters (not from our neighborhood). Kids grow up too fast!!!

    2. Your most memorable Halloween costume?
    My husband and I dressed up as Jack and Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas for a party. He’s a perfect Jack: tall and lanky. And, I used a ton of white and black make-up and hot glued bulging eyes and lashes to sunglasses.. Nobody knew who we were until my laughter gave us away.

    3. Who knows you better than anyone else?
    My husband!

    Usually, crawl in bed.

    Whichever junk food I’m craving at the moment.

    Go to Norstroms, not look at anything! and buy Laura Mercier’s primer. Got sidetracked yesterday with the MAC and Clinque counters. I forgot the primer!

    I was going to say OF COURSE you would go to a spa with Los Gatos in the name. So appropriate. But I guess if it’s in Los Gatos, that’s not as coincidental a name. Haha.

    2. Your most memorable Halloween costume? Hmm.. I loved the Grouchketeer costume my mom made for me when I was a wee one. It had an awesome tinfoil-covered trashcan lid hat! She made me the best costumes, all without the aid of the internet.

    4. What’s the first thing you do when you get off work/out of school? Enzo insists I take him for a walk ASAP.
    5. What’s the most awkward movie-watching experience you’ve ever endured with your family? I can’t think of anything, so that must be good!
    6. How many times have you been in love? 3. I think the third time’s a charm, though.
    7. Which game show would you like to be a contestant on? I would be awesome on Jeopardy (yes, I am a huge nerd). Unless they have a whole category of questions about like, Adam Sandler movies or something.
