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.
- How do you feel right now?
I have that fuzzy feeling in the back of my eyeballs from not getting enough sleep last night. (Dear Insomnia, I apologize for the formal tone of this letter, but I fear that our relationship is not working out.)
- Where does your hair part?
Almost always to the left, or sometimes the middle. For a brief six months after a stylist completely jacked up my ‘do, it parted to the right , but that’s another story for another time…
- Something you said to yourself this morning?
“You’re doing alright, baby girl. Just gotta get to that happy place.”
- Gloves or mittens?
Mittens! Fire engine red. I also like it when you can unfasten a button, zipper or Velcro and BAM! — fingerless gloves!
- We’re at the ice cream shop. What can I get ya?
Depends on the shop, but if we’re up here in Marin County at the Three Twins in Larkspur, I’d get a cup with half Salted Caramel and half Earl Grey (they have a lot of funky flavors like Rice Milk Horchata and Chai Tea to go with old standbys like Vanilla).
Duuuuude…put your Kate Spade wallet away! I got this.
- Last movie you went to with someone?
Last night my brother and I went to see The Impossible, staring Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor (thought it was aw-ite).
- Someone with whom you used to be close but have since fallen out of touch?
Elizabeth, a gal I met when I was in my mid-20s and living in San Francisco. She took me under her wing back when we worked at different law firms together. She would always listen with a kind ear whenever I talked about roommate, rent, career or boy problems, and always had a comforting story to share. She was like an older sister to me, but we lost touch there somewhere along the way… I miss her.
- Last time you washed your makeup brushes?
Um…Thursday or Friday. I think.
- What purse are you carrying today?
My Zella gathered tote, which, FYI, now doubles as a cat bed (see pic below)!
- What are your weekly goals?
To do lots of reading, eat a truckload of fresh veggies (I feel so much better when I’m fiber-full) and not take myself so damn seriously, LOL!

Cheeseball moment! Today I feel like my heart’s wrapped in a comfy quilt, and I’m slowly rocking back and forth in a rocking chair on a beautiful porch.
Because I had a great weekend! Saturday, I did basically nothing (YAY!), and then I spent most of Sunday with my brother (food trucks, a hike, the movies, grocery shopping).
He spent the night at our house, and when I finally, FINALLY fell asleep last night, I remember thinking, “Right now, there are three boys under my roof (El Hub, my bro and Tabs) whom I love very much.”
Non-cheeseball moment! Remember The Ballad of Tabs the Cat? Well, as I was saying earlier, Tabs has claimed my Zella tote as his new favorite fainting coach.
Next thing you know, he’ll be insisting that I pay him rent to live in my own house, le sigh.
Hope you’re having a nice Monday so far. Talk to you soon, okay?
