Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 211

Published in: Just For Fun

monday poll

  • 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 four years. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
  1. Mood:
  2. Surprisingly perky! — despite the hour so viciously wrenched from my grasp early Sunday morning (blast you Daylight Savings Time!).

    I also just finished my third cup of green tea, so now I’m like, whee!

  3. What’s your idea of a perfect Sunday?
  4. It starts with a great night’s sleep and easing awake slowly, as opposed to having an 18-pound cat use my tum as a springboard.

    Then, El Hub gives me a nice, long hug — and not one of those 5 second ones, either, that ends with a pat on the back. He’s a morning person and wakes up antsy and rearing to go, so he’s apt to pull away before I’ve met my hug quota.

    For breakfast, I have banana pancakes, an egg over easy, hash browns and a hot cup of coffee, and all of them just materialize out of thin air like manna from heaven, served while I’m still in bed, of course.

    After breakfast, I read something fun and light for about an hour or so, buzz through 5 miles on the treadmill, take a leisurely shower, and then take as much time as I want to apply my makeup and do my hair.

    Then, some brainless TV, a little more reading, maybe a movie and some good food.

    Tada! The perfect Sunday. :)

  5. Would you care to dance?
  6. Yes, please! Thank you for asking.

  7. If you were the star of your own reality TV show, what would the show be called?
  8. Either My So-Called Life As a Celebrity Cat Assistant, Tabs Takes Over, America’s Next Top Curmudgeon, Novato-licious, or Project Exhaustion.

    Really, the possibilities are endless.

  9. Heels or sneakers?
  10. Heels when I’m dining, shopping, or doing something social; sneakers when I’m jogging or exploring someplace new.

  11. Favorite shower tune?
  12. Isn’t It Ironic. Ever since I heard it on The Voice last week, that’s been my favorite tune to sing in the shower. Ironically, though, I don’t know the lyrics…so I just keep singing the same part over and over again.

    “Mr. Play It Safe… was afraid to fly.”

  13. Would you rather spend a quiet night at home or an exciting night on the town?
  14. I’ve become quite the homebody over the past few years, but I wouldn’t say no to a night on the town as long as I didn’t have to wear anything too binding, and I could still be home by midnight.

    And she inches ever closer to turning into Liz Lemon…

  15. Do you smile at strangers?
  16. I do, but only when I have food stuck in my teeth.

    Kidding! Yeah, I do.

  17. Something you’d like to do today?
  18. Finish everything on my to-do list by six.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. To run five days this week, to give myself a good pedicure, and to spend at least 20 solid minutes playing with Tabs each and every day.

Hey, friend. :) Happy Monday.

Oh! So I was listening to my iTunes on shuffle last night when Fleetwood Mac’s Say You Will started playing.

I haven’t heard that song in years…

I really started getting into it. Full-on chair dancing and everything.

Assuming you aren’t bopping too recklessly in your chair right now, do you have a minute to fill out the Monday Poll this morning?

  1. Barb says:

    I want to address the Walking Dead before I start the poll. All I have to say is unfreakingbelievable! I believe it was the best episode of the season! I was talking to my TV last night. I believe I was muttering something like “Shane has lost his freaking mind!”, “Please, don’t kill Rick!”, “Will I watch this if Rick gets killed off?”, “Holy Sh!t!! He’s a walker?!?!”.

    Now, onto the poll:

    1. Mood: Pretty good for a Monday!
    2. What’s your idea of a perfect Sunday? Sleeping till whenever. Get up, lounge around watching mindless tv, eat whatever I want.
    3. Would you care to dance? Not much of a dancer. Have no coordination at all!
    4. Reality TV show title? “This is My Life”
    5. Heels or sneakers? Sneakers.
    6. Favorite shower tune? I’ve had Little Talks by Of Monsters and Men stuck in my head for about 2 weeks now.
    7. A quiet night at home or an exciting night on the town? Totally depends on what kind of mood I am in.
    8. Do you smile at strangers? Yup.
    9. Something you’d like to do today? Eat healthy! Gained 2.2 pounds this week. So close to the 10 pound mark!
    10. Weekly goals: See #9 above :)

    • Karen says:

      Okay, I totally had that moment too! I guess even if you don’tt get infected, the zombie virus stays dormant until you die?

      • Barb says:

        I guess so. I can’t recall anyone else dying without it being a zombie attack. I’m gonna be sad for it to end next week. This season totally flew by!

        Although, I am getting excited for Game of Thrones to come back on and Mad Men!

        • Karen says:

          I’m so psyched for Game of Thrones. Do you have Amazon instant video? I’ve been watching these 10-minute behind the scenes Game of Thrones videos and they’re really great. I just watched one that talked solely about the costumes on the show and it was fascinating to listen to the designers talk about the why and how behind the costume decisions.

  2. Katherine G says:

    Your idea of a perfect Sunday sounds quite wonderful :)

    1. Mood:
    ~Tired, and a little annoyed that the hubby isn’t back by now. Happy to be done with school, but this means any free time I want to spend with the hubby.

    2. What’s your idea of a perfect Sunday?
    ~Sleeping in, and going to Dutch’s Daughter like we did yesterday. They have the BEST food in the state of Maryland, I swear. And everything is homemade, and they put lump crabmeat in a lot of their dishes. Brunch yesterday was to die for! I also like vegging out and watching movies or TV, or if it’s a nice day, going for a drive, walk, or hike somewhere.

    3. Would you care to dance?
    ~I’m not a great dancer but sure!

    4. Reality TV show title?
    ~Hmmm…don’t know if I would be ON reality tv…I enjoy watching it too much!

    5. Heels or sneakers?
    ~Heels only for special occasions (I don’t see much reason to wear them out otherwise, I always feel overdressed even if I’m in jeans and a tee!), sneakers and flats probably most of the time. I have a lot of cute heels but can’t seem to find occasions to wear them!

    6. Favorite shower tune?
    ~I don’t sing in the shower but Whitney’s “I have nothing” would be good…

    7. A quiet night at home or an exciting night on the town?
    ~I’m also a lot more of a homebody. I think going out on the town frequently was something to do when I was single. I cherish those quiet nights at home with the hubby. It’s nice to be out with other people, but I prefer it only once in a while.

    8. Do you smile at strangers?
    ~I do, especially if they seem warm and friendly too. If they are staring at me and I perceive it to be rude, I am a lot less likely to smile!

    9. Something you’d like to do today?
    ~Spend time with my hubby. Really not happy that what he went to do is taking this long.

    10. Weekly goals:
    ~Take advantage of the warm weather :)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Katherine G,

      You just said the magic words — LUMP CRAB MEAT! Mmm. Now I’m craving crab cakes. ;)

      What classes did you have today? Hope your hubs comes back soon so you guys can hang out!

      • Katherine G says:

        Done with classes for my Bachelor’s in Psych/Bio! So now it is continuing education and doing what I can to get my dream job :) If you ever come visit MD, Dutch’s Daughter is in Frederick. Probably some of the best food you will ever have :)

  3. Shannon says:

    1. Mood:
    Not too shabby! I’ve already gotten quite a bit done, but I don’t really feel that productive yet. hm.
    2. What’s your idea of a perfect Sunday?
    Waking up with the sun (after getting a full night’s rest, of course!), cuddling with the hubs a bit, and the yoga while he makes coffee.
    Brunch would consist of brioche french toast with vanilla whipped cream (totally channeling Macrina bakery on Queen Anne in Seattle) on a balcony overlooking the city. Probably a European one. (You did say PERFECT Sunday, lol!)
    The rest of the day would be spent lounging and window shopping. Dinner would be something exotic, tasty, and 100% satisfying.
    The night would end in a ridiculously awesome jazz club where I’d be singing with some amazing musicians. Bam!
    3. Would you care to dance?
    Why yes, I would! Not with the hubby, though. He is NOT a fan.
    4. Reality TV show title?
    Confessions of a mid-twenties office assistant, the sequel to which will be Confessions of a late-twenties office assistant who tries to make it as a jazz singer, lol.
    5. Heels or sneakers?
    Heels, please! But only the comfy ones. I’m the complainiest person when my feet start to hurt!
    6. Favorite shower tune?
    No WAY can I pick a favorite. There are too many good ones. However, anything Julie London sings is always a good choice :)
    7. A quiet night at home or an exciting night on the town?
    Definitely depends on my mood. I like being out a lot, but that might just be because I don’t get to do it that often! :)
    8. Do you smile at strangers?
    This depends on my mood, too. And also whether or not the stranger looks like a creeper or not. I tend to not smile at people who look like creepers.
    9. Something you’d like to do today?
    Take a nap between 2pm and 6pm! I don’t think that will be feasible, though… sigh.
    10. Weekly goals:
    To ACTUALLY outline my practice times on my calendar and to get some jazz-theory-studying done. Oh, and to keep the apartment as clean as possible :)

  4. ines says:

    Heya Karen! Hope you’ve had a great weekend – things are FINALLY starting to warm up here in the Great North :)

    1. Mood: A little worn out but happy. Daylight savings really takes a toll on me for a few days, but that means more sunlight after work!

    2. What’s your idea of a perfect Sunday? Sunlight when I wake up, leisurely grocery shopping then cooking, brunch/daytime activities with the boy and/or friends. Maybe a throw in a drive with the sunroof open in my little Volkswagen Golf GTI (my boyfriend still thinks this is too much car for a girl but what the hell does he know :P).

    3. Would you care to dance? YES! I’m trying to get my boyfriend to come learn Ballroom and Argentine Tango with me!

    4. Reality TV show title? La Petite Montrealaise… A sneak peak into a Montreal transplant’s life & all the drama that unfolds as she discovers the city (makes my life seem more interesting than it really is LOL).

    5. Heels or sneakers? Heels but only if they aren’t too high. But definitely sneakers if I’m going to be driving or walking a lot (try driving a manual/standard transmission car in heels – I’ve snapped off like 3 pairs). Also, I complain a lot when my feet hurt and turn into the worst kind of diva. The only exception is dance shoes – I’m willing to brave the pain for those (google Comme Il Faut tango shoes and you’ll see what I mean, these are like the Loubies of the dance world).

    6. Favorite shower tune? I can’t sing to save my life…

    7. A quiet night at home or an exciting night on the town? Night at home with close friends, good food & wine.

    8. Do you smile at strangers? Only if need be – like if they hold open a door for me or if they look at me.

    9. Something you’d like to do today? Go to bed early and get 1 hour of extra sleep.

    10. Weekly goals: Eat 3 vegetarian dinners (trying to eat less meat), do a spring cleaning of my wardrobe (especially the shoes!), organize my makeup.

  5. I’ve never seen The Walking Dead, but I think I might have to. Everyone and their mama watches this
    Mood: great, I’m about to start lunch, yum.
    2. What’s your idea of a perfect Sunday? doing beauty product reviews, and spending time with the family.
    3. Would you care to dance? yes please, how about we do the electric slide?
    4. Reality TV show title? Trying to make it in Manhattan.
    5. Heels or sneakers?Heels!
    6. Favorite shower tune? lol, I aways play, 112 Come see me.
    7. A quiet night at home or an exciting night on the town? A quiet night at home, watching jersey shore reruns.
    8. Do you smile at strangers? Sometimes if they look like they are having a bad day. A smile can change someone’s day for the better.
    9. Something you’d like to do today? Finish writing.
    10. Weekly goals: To do my first national beauty tv segment on wed, so excited, and to smile.

    • Karen says:

      The first season of The Walking Dead is AMAZING. Absolutely pitch perfect, and probably some of the best TV I’ve ever seen.

      The second season of the show has so far been a snooze-fest. If you can, start with the first season!

  6. Nina says:

    1. Mood: oh so tired! give me my hour back, pls DST!

    10. Weekly goals: ah. just get my body clock back in sync. i dont know why DST always throws me off!

    • Karen says:

      Hey Nina,

      I’d like my hour back, too, along with a little extra time for some sleeping in.

      Love the name of your reality TV show title. :)

      • Nina says:

        yep. i demand my hour back LOL.

        but im taking tomorrow off. mostly because the hubs has been off since last week and i couldnt take days off because of a work project.

        were just gonna kick back tomorrow, and sleep in!

  7. Ruchita says:

    Le List

    1. Mood:
    Tired. I was up way to late on Saturday b/c we had people over and I had to get up early on Sunday in addition to the time change. Hopefully I can get into bed early today.

    2. What’s your idea of a perfect Sunday?
    Sleeping in. Breakfast with pancakes, bacon and eggs. Snuggling on the couch and reading a good book and then watching a movie. Basically having the day with no other obiligations would be wonderful.

    Sure, although I have no rhythm whatsover. :-)

    4. Reality TV show title?

    Walking Dead – wow, what an ending! Also, maybe I missed something, but I thought people only became zombies if they were bit? Must go off and research on the Internets.

    Have a great day! :-)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Ruchita,

      I was confused about that too. I think that even if you survive the initial zombie outbreak, you’re still infected with the virus. It’s just dormant while you’re in your human state. When you die, BAM! Zombie time.

    2. What’s your idea of a perfect Sunday? Depends on the season: I’m a sleep in, kinda lazy Sunday gal.. I like to check out the flea market for new books ($2 a pop), run a few errands and spend the afternoon/evening doing what needs to be done at home & catching up on my PVR sessions.. but come Summer? I’m up with the birds (they are rather loud) at the cottage, coffee in hand sitting on the patio enjoying the quiet peacefulness and then I’m on the dock, laughing with friends and driving 45minutes home to rest up..

    3. Would you care to dance? Always _ I dance at home non stop and in the car (its quite the sight)

    4. Reality TV show title? The Adventures of the ‘big girl’ panties. bah ha ha..

    4. Reality TV show title? Hmm….I have nothing on this one. I’m boring I guess lol
    5. Heels or sneakers? Heels
    6. Favorite shower tune? Gloria Gaynor’s I Will Survive

    and apply for a new job!

    Walking Dead Zomg! I’m loving it!! Such a shocker last night! I’m also glad Lori got a chance to apologize to Shane for being the big B lately. I can’t imagine how he felt being told she was pregnant and he doesn’t get anything to do with it – cold as ice yo!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Melissa,

      I love My Fitness Pal! I really didn’t make headway in my fitness until I started tracking with it. It makes a huge difference.

      I was really, really surprised that they decided to do that with so many main characters. The show definitely took an unexpected turn! Have you been enjoying this season so far? For the most part I’ve felt like it was really, really slow.

      • Melissa says:

        I enjoy it, it has been kinda slow. Feeling like they were always talking about the same thing over and over. Nice to see the Zombies come back, they seem to have been absent for a while. I really don’t like Lori’s character but they don’t seem to want to kill her off. The season finale should be interesting! I’m psyched for Game of Thrones to come back on! I’m loving cable’s TV shows :-)

  11. Karen B says:

    1. Mood: Relaxed right now but I was pretty stressed out before.
    2. What’s your idea of a perfect Sunday? Waking up around nine-ish. Going to breakfast with my mum and brother, take a walk along the beach and have lunch at my grandpa’s in the large garden. An afternoon spent there with my family, some tea or other fresh drinks and then spending some time with my friends in the evening.
    3. Would you care to dance? Yes please! I love dancing.
    4. Reality TV show title? I’m not a fan of reality tv. I do like ANTM and Project Runway when it’s on and nothing else interesting is there.
    5. Heels or sneakers? Heels. I love heels. Never been a fan of sneakers. I prefer a flat oxford when I want comfort.
    6. Favorite shower tune? Haha. I always sing to myself while I’m in the shower. Usually whatever I’m studying at the time.
    7. A quiet night at home or an exciting night on the town? Both. I wouldn’t like going out five nights in a row but once or twice a week or so would be lovely.
    8. Do you smile at strangers? Yes. Sometimes.
    9. Something you’d like to do today? Finish studying my second Shakespeare monologue. Score!
    10. Weekly goals: Decide on the monologues, study at least the second one of them. Just feel happy and not too stressed out.

  13. susan says:

    I’m a big fan of your blog! I recently put together two of your MAC unsung heroes …Oh Baby lipglass and Creme in Your Coffee lipstick. It created such a beautiful color for my NC 40-42 skin tone ! Give it a try sometime:)

  14. Rachael says:

    1. Mood: I don’t even know what to call it, it’s a mix of nervousness and excited.

    2. What’s your idea of a perfect Sunday? Sleeping in with my fur babies, being able to enjoy being outside and finish the night off with a movie in bed.

    3. Would you care to dance? Sure why not!

    4. Reality TV show title? I think I lead to boring of a life to have my own TV show.

    5. Heels or sneakers? Both have a place, but I prefer to do most things in sneakers.

    6. Favorite shower tune? Whatever I manage to sing off key. It’s all generally from Avenue Q though.

    7. A quiet night at home or an exciting night on the town? Oooo, I like both but for us an exciting night on the town is going to a nice restaurant and eating like crazy.

    8. Do you smile at strangers? Not often, I try not to make eye contact just because most of the people here at school are just plain rude.

    9. Something you’d like to do today? Not have class, but my classes got cancelled the last two days before my wedding so I only have 2 more classes this week!

    10. Weekly goals: Get married and pack for my honeymoon!!!!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Rachel,

      Time sure does fly! I can’t believe your wedding is practically around the corner. Where will you guys be heading for your honeymoon?

      • Rachael says:

        I still can’t believe I’m getting married on Saturday! I remember when I had like 140 days to it and now I really know why they say “time flies.”

        We’re going to Sandals at the Grand Bahamian which is on Nassau. I did field research on a neighbor Bahamanian island and plan on annoying my husband (!) with all sorts of fishy facts

        • Karen says:

          It really does go by in the blink of an eye. I’ve noticed, too, that as I get older it seems to fly by even faster. So, are all the details set? Nothing last minute to take care of?

          • Sadie says:

            I have indeed! Lived here all my life bar 3 years studying in Bristol. I love it but the bustle gets a bit much sometimes, and after my US road trip last summer I have a real hankering to move to the west coast…*sigh*…maybe one day.

          • Rachael says:

            Everything is set, except for packing, I really hate that stuff.

  15. Linnea says:

    1. Mood: Tired, but anxiously happy. We signed a conditional sale on our first house last night, so very busy getting all the ducks in a row, but also happy and excited and nervous — you know, the normal Monday. :)
    2. What’s your idea of a perfect Sunday? My sounds very similar to yours Karen.. Having a nice sleep, not waking up at 7:30 like I usually do (not because I have to, but because my body/mind hates my ability to sleep). Some reading time, some snuggle time, some movie time maybe.

    7. A quiet night at home or an exciting night on the town? Exciting night on the town. Lady Baby is making her arrival this summer, so we’re trying to go out as much as we can right now.

  18. Sadie says:

    1. Mood:
    A little grumpy. I just spent the first nice spring weekend of the year being ill and not able to venture outside at all. Now I’m starting to feel better and what do I have to look forward to? Going back to work. Oh joy.

    2. What’s your idea of a perfect Sunday?
    I’m a bit contradictory here, as while I enjoy a good lie-in with my man and the cat, I also like getting up early on a Sunday to do some exercise while it’s really quiet. Either swimming or going to the gym. It sets me up for the day and after that, an afternoon spent rustling up delicious food and maybe having a leisurely stroll by the river with my beloved would do me just fine.

    3. Would you care to dance?
    Ordinarily, yes, but I still have some stomach cramps from the aforementioned illness so I’ll have to sit this one out, this time I’m afraid :(

    4. Reality TV show title?
    Charity starts at…work, actually

    5. Heels or sneakers?
    Neither – I’m all about the flat ankle / biker boots at the moment

    6. Favorite shower tune?
    I don’t have a radio in my shower so I don’t really have one…

    7. A quiet night at home or an exciting night on the town?
    It depends – both have a place in my life really. Lately it’s been more of the nights at home, which has suited me fine, but as the weather warms up I feel more inclined to venture out of an evening.

    8. Do you smile at strangers?
    Not often. I live in London; just making eye contact with strangers marks you out as ‘the one to avoid sitting next to’ on the tube.

    9. Something you’d like to do today?
    Feel better.

    10. Weekly goals:
    See answer to no. 9. And: get through what’s left of the working week to enjoy seeing some of my best people at the weekend.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Sadie,

      That’s cool that you live in London. I visited once and liked how bustling it was. Have you always lived there?

      • Sadie says:

        I have indeed! Lived here all my life bar 3 years studying in Bristol. I love it but the bustle gets a bit much sometimes, and after my US road trip last summer I have a real hankering to move to the west coast…*sigh*…maybe one day.

    2. What’s your idea of a perfect Sunday?

    4. Reality TV show title?

    A quiet night at home.

    8. Do you smile at strangers?
    Only if it’s attached to a dog. I’m incredibly shy, but I’m incredibly outgoing around dogs. I find them irresistible.
