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.
Ya know, I’m actually doing pretty good. I made a little progress on the home front over the weekend (more on that in a sec), so that gets a big sigh of relief, ahhhh.
- How many sequins is too many? Would you wear ‘em from head to toe?
You bet I would! Let’s do this mo’ fo’! As far as I’m concerned, the more sequins, the better. Assuming I’m also wearing a fierce pair of shoes, because the footwear must be worthy of the outfit; otherwise, I see no point in said bedazzlement.
- Are there any stories or details you wish you knew about your parents or guardians?
I wish I knew the real story of how my parents met. Every time I’ve ever asked my mom, she’s given me some vague answer about how they met in college…
And? And what, Mom? How did you meet? Where did you meet? What was your first date like?
Of course, since I can never get a straight answer out of her, my overactive imagination concocts something soapy and scandalous.
Hmm… On second thought, maybe I don’t want to know, LOL!
- What are your most and least favorite Halloween sweets?
If I could, I’d fill my plastic pumpkin with Mini Snickers, pink Mentos (just the pink ones), popcorn-flavored Jelly Belly beans, peanut M&M’s (with Tabs’ picture printed on them, of course), Sour Patch Kids and Twix.
And I’d leave out the Smarties (blech!), Swedish Fish, licorice and Tootsie Rolls. Thank you!
- Who’s the last person spoke with on the phone?
Mi madre! She’s trying to get me to go wine tasting with her, of all things…
- If you could be on the cover of any magazine, which magazine would it be?
Um…Cat Fancy? Please don’t judge, LOL!
- Unicorn or pegasus?
Ooh! — that’s a toughie. With the pegasus, you get free air travel, but I bet there’s a lot of upkeep involved caring for the wings.
Plus, where do you park a pegasus? It’s not like they have special pegasus parking at Trader Joe’s, and do you have to land and take off from an airport?
I guess I’d probably go with the unicorn… They are able to teleport once a day, and that’s pretty handy.
- What’s the shortest/longest you’ve ever had your hair?
The shortest was an awful cropped cut back in the sixth grade (not my idea, btw! When I grew boobs, my parents suddenly decided I needed a boy haircut).
The longest I’ve ever had it was in high school, and it hung all the way down to my bum.
- What do you do to relax after a stressful day?
I like to take a long, hot shower, make myself a cup of tea, and if I’m hungry, have a yummy meal with veggies and fresh bread or pasta. Then, a movie on Netflix, a good book, and/or an at-home mani/pedi.
- Weekly goals:
One thing at a time. That’s my only goal, really — that I focus on one thing at a time. If I can do that, then I know I can get through my the most important things on my long to-do list.
Hey, sweet friend. How YOU doing?! Did you have a good weekend?
Mine was pretty good.. Actually, really good. I got in some hard-core relaxing (I know that sounds funny…), and like I mentioned a minute ago, made some progress on a home project, meaning that I actually got out and looked at dining room tables.
I think I’m this close to finally pulling the trigger on a honey-colored mango wood one from Crate and Barrel. It’s just a basic rectangular table. No flourish at all, which is what I want.
I also stopped by Home Depot to get some paint swatches because I’m thinking about painting the dining room. It’s sort of an eggshell white right now, as are all the walls, but I’m thinking about different shades of light blue.
If you happen to have a good eye for interior design, I have a question for you. Does the size of the room have any bearing on the size of table you should get? How much space should you leave around the table, between the table and the walls?
I can’t figure out if I should get a smaller or a larger table. I’m drawn to a larger one because I could use it as a work space for projects, but it would take up most of the room…
Hmm… While I continue pondering this question of profound global importance (not), do you have a minute to fill out this week’s Monday poll? I hope so. I’d love to hear from you.
