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.Advertisement
Really good. I’ve got some of that holiday spirit coursing through my veins. I’m excited about hosting Thanksgiving at my house this year (first time since moving in). Still no dining room table because it’s on back-order for a few more weeks, but we’ll make do. I’ll just requisition Tabs’ office desk and use it for the dining room.
- I get a thrill from…
- Cleaning the house from top to bottom (I’m so my mother’s daughter)!
- Plucking those stiff, little hairs on my chin that seemingly appear out of nowhere (they’re like mushrooms).
- Singing on the treadmill.
- Wearing my blue Katy Perry wig around the house.
I’d add 6 inches of length, darken the base to something close to black and give myself chocolate highlights.
I’ll probably do that anyway in the not-to-distant future, but I’m still enjoying my current caramel highlight phase.
A few things. It’s potluck, so folks are bringing some of the sides, and Whole Foods is taking care of the turkey (I didn’t want to use this year for my on-the-job training).
I’m making a fish dish, corn pudding, roasting some broccoli, and baking my world famous blueberry peach cobbler!
El Hub, of course! (Tabs is already going.) Or my mom, if El Hub can’t rent a tux in time, LOL!
Twitter, for sure (I’m @karenmbb). I like the chatting back and forth, and it’s a great way to get instant feedback about things.
I can’t keep it on all day, though. If I do, I don’t get anything done.
I think sometimes I can come across that way, but I’m just friendly. Okay…maybe I’m a little bit of a flirt.
No. Hasn’t held much allure for me, but I am guilty of picking at my cuticles.
And now that we’re talking about it, I’m having to use all of my willpower to resist the temptation to do it now…
I wish I could say I wouldn’t change anything at all, because that’s the stock answer, but…I wish I already had kids.
I’ve really got to manage my time wisely this week (yes, I realize that that’s one of my recurring weekly goals). I also need to paint my toenails, because they desperately need some love. Other than that, I just want to keep a positive attitude, no matter how busy I get, and have a nice Thanksgiving holiday with my family.
All pretty basic stuff.
Good morning, sweets.
Guess who stayed up waaay too late last night reading a riveting new novel by the Pulitzer Prize winning writing team, Fluffy & Bonkers, called The Devious Book for Cats?
LOL! Okay, maybe not. MBB reader Michelle, who pet assists for two tuxedo kitty sisters, sent this link to what sounds like a purrrfect book for cats and the ladies who love them.
It addresses tabby-friendly topics like, how to lay claim to boxes, how to wake up humans, and what to do when you find yourself stuck in a tree.
While I read a few excerpts to Tabs, please let me know how you’re doing by filling out today’s Monday Poll.
To complete the Monday Poll, just copy the following list, and paste it with your answers in the comments.
