The Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll for April 15, 2013

The Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll for April 15, 2013

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. Do you usually apply your making sitting down or standing up?
    Mostly sitting down in my office, but I’ll do touch-ups standing up when in the bathroom, like while I’m doing my hair.

    You know how sometimes when you take a step back and see everything from that extra foot away in the mirror, it totally changes your perspective?

  2. Have you ever cried at work?
    Oh, hell yeah. Many, many times. When I worked in the city, I even had a special bathroom stall that I always went to when I needed to cry. It was my safe place, and um…I spent a lot of time in there.

    I think my co-workers thought I had serious digestive issues…

  3. When was the last time you wore body glitter in the daytime?
    Hmm… Full-on body glitter? Probably Vegas in 2003.

    I did also wear Michael Kors Leg Shimmer last summer on Kauai…but I don’t know if that counts.

  4. You just ordered a deli sandwich. Do you eat the pickle it comes with?
    I do, if it’s crunchy and not dripping in pickle juice.
  5. Share a good memory from your high school years.
    Picture it: a band nerd. I played with the orchestra in a few school musicals, like A Chorus Line, West Side Story and Damn Yankees and had so much fun doing West Side Story!

    The flute parts were off the hook! Jen and I were the only flautists in the band and spent the the better part of each music class passing notes and talking about boys.

    Ah, to be 16 and completely clueless again… Good times. :)

  6. Something looming over your head that you need to get done sooner than later?
    I need to go to the DMV this week, argh!

    But the lines, the crankiness, the horrendous florescent lighting. Every time I go to the DMV I break out in hives, but on a positive note, the DMV is like Disneyland compared to the telephone system at Kaiser.

  7. Do you have a favorite downtime/weekend scent?
    Lately, Bobbi Brown Beach perfume. THE BEST SATURDAY SCENT! Hands down.
  8. List your shower routine from start to finish.
    First, I wash my hair, then run conditioner through it from root to tip.

    I let the conditioner sit and do its thing for a minute or two, and then I usually shave before rinsing off the conditioner.

    Then I wash my face and body, and I don’t know why, but this always takes a minimum of 20 minutes.

    I’ve tried to take five-minute showers but it never works out that way…

  9. What’s your stance on jumpsuits?
    I like ‘em in conservative, neutral colors like black or gray, and in a materials I could wear to work. No terry cloth, no bright colors, and definitely nothing that makes me look shorter than I already am.
  10. Have you ever traveled abroad?
    I’ve been to the Philippines, Western Europe, Canada and Mexico.

To complete the Monday Poll, just copy the following list, and paste it with your answers in the comments.

  1. Agata says:

    1. Do you usually apply your making sitting down or standing up?
    Sitting down, in front of a magnifying mirror. But I flip it to normal when I apply bronzer/blush to get a better perspective.

    2. Have you ever cried at work?
    Yes, not a lot of times but yes.

    3. When was the last time you wore body glitter in the daytime? Never…

    4. You just ordered a deli sandwich. Do you eat the pickle it comes with? Most likely give it to my husband, he loves pickles more than me.

    5. Share a good memory from your high school years.
    Almost through the whole high school years I dated my bf at that time. We would always write little notes to each other and leave them in each other’s lockers. That was sweet.

    6. Something looming over your head that you need to get done sooner than later? Buy a new car, ugh.

    7. What’s your weekend scent? At the moment, Lancome La Vie est Belle but my favorites change quite frequently.

    8. List your shower routine from start to finish.
    Get in the shower, wash my body first, shave, wash my hair- shampoo, conditioner. But I thin your idea with applying conditioner first is brilliant. I will have to try it. The thing is I hate washing my hair and I always try to rush through it.

    9. What’s your stance on jumpsuits? I am ok with them on other people, not for me though.

    10. Have you ever traveled abroad? Yes. This is technically my abroad since I moved here from Poland but I have also been to a few other European countries and to Canada.

    Happy Monday, Karen! The sun is finally shining here!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Agata,

      I keep meaning to ask you about the car situation! We bought one just before we moved in 2010 — the only thing that made it bearable was shopping for it online! We contacted the dealer first and then tried to see if they would match prices from other places. It saved us a lot of travel time and effort.

      Anywho, I hope you get to go outside today and enjoy the sunshine. Happy Monday!

      • Agata says:

        My husband is the king of online research so we got that covered. The main problem is that we are trying to trade in our current car and we still owe on it and we want to get as much as we owe and of course dealers are not willing to offer that much. But hopefully we will find a good deal soon, maybe even tonight.

  2. Natasha says:

    Good morning, Karen! It’s raining in SoCal! Can’t believe we’re actually getting rain in April! Will wonders never cease!

    1. Do you usually apply your making sitting down or standing up?
    Standing up in the bathroom — and leaning in really far to see my eyes in the 10x zoom mirror… I’m getting old and losing my vision…

    2. Have you ever cried at work?
    Oh yeah. Embarrassing. I used to work for a NY Italian doctor whose style was, um, confrontational. As a soft-spoken SOutherner, I burst into tears many times when working for her…

    3. When was the last time you wore body glitter in the daytime?
    Today… I’m a henna and glitter artist so I always have at least one example of my work on my at all times. Full-body glitter? Yesterday when I did a lot of glitter tattoos and the sparkle was a-flying fast and furious… I’ve had people ask me where i get my sparkle pants…and I have to admit they are an occupational side-effect…

    4. You just ordered a deli sandwich. Do you eat the pickle it comes with?
    If it’s Kosher Dill, you bet!

    5. Share a good memory from your high school years.
    I was an orchestra nerd (violin)…and crossed over to Marching band to get out of gym class… we were certainly a sight to behold when we played at games…one Sousaphone, one flute, one oboe (me), and 2 trumpets… we were a small school… but they were good times.

    6. Something looming over your head that you need to get done sooner than later?
    Not really. Finished my taxes. Took care of the DMV renewal stuff. My license isn’t due until July. Just housecleaning, but that’s an on-going challenge rather than a looming deadline.

    7. What’s your weekend scent?
    Bliss… but Bobbi Brown’s beach sounds delightful.

    8. List your shower routine from start to finish.
    Wet hair, apply conditioner, scrub the rest of me, use conditioner as shaving cream, rinse everything. Spritz on leave-in conditioner, and done. Takes about 5 minutes. Hubby takes much longer showers!

    9. What’s your stance on jumpsuits?
    Not for me. YOu have to practically completely undress to use the bathroom.

    10. Have you ever traveled abroad?
    Yep. China, Korea, Australia, England, Italy, France, Germany, Israel, Mexico, Canada

      Hi Natasha,

      Good morning to you too! I’ll have to send you some virutal NorCal Sunshine. :)

      I think it’s super cool that you work as a henna and glitter artist. How did you get into it? And how long have you been doing it?

      • Natasha says:

        I’ve been doing henna since 1998 — got a kit for my birthday and got obsessed…love the history, culture, patterns variations and the kitchen chemistry of it. Glitter tats are relatively new. I just discovered PRos-Aide Cream this past summer which allows me to get henna-like precision in glitter — it’s my new obsession! LOL!
        Natasha recently posted … Sunday Pictures: Mon Petit Chateau

        • Karen says:

          That’s super cool. I went to a wedding once where the bride had henna tattoos on her hands and they were so beautiful. I loved the intricacy of the patterns. Do you do a lot of weddings?

          Is it still raining down there?

  3. Laura says:

    1. Do you usually apply your making sitting down or standing up? Standing up, always. I couldn’t do it if I had to sit down.

    2. Have you ever cried at work? Not that I can remember.

    3. When was the last time you wore body glitter in the daytime? Last July, during the music festival “Calvi on the Rocks” in Corsica. Everyone was pretty colorful too. I even had body paint on my face and shoulders. But it was very artistic.

    4. You just ordered a deli sandwich. Do you eat the pickle it comes with? Not really.

    5. Share a good memory from your high school years. In high school we took a trip to Italy for a week with our italian teacher. That’s were I became friends with my ex-boyfriend for the first time. We started dating after our finals and it lasted 3 years. This trip was a real turning point. And I also got drunk for the first time there!

    6. Something looming over your head that you need to get done sooner than later? My car insurance! I need to do all the paperwork this week.

    7. What’s your weekend scent? I love Daisy Eau so Fresh by Marc Jacobs.

    8. List your shower routine from start to finish. I start with shampoo on my hair, then conditioner. While the conditioner conditions (lol), I wash my body with shower gel, maybe I exfoliate if needed. Then I rinse hair and body and done!

    9. What’s your stance on jumpsuits? They look pretty on others, not on me. They make you look young too. I feel only teenagers can pull those off.

    10. Have you ever traveled abroad? Oh yea, USA (even Hawaï), England, Italy, Ireland, Spain and of course my homeland, France. I used to travel so much a few years ago but I’m done for now, I like home better I think (even though a quick shopping trip to NYC or London wouldn’t hurt…).

    Happy Monday

    • Karen says:

      Happy Monday to you too, Laura. What island did you visit when you went to Hawaii?

      • laura says:

        Only Oahu, but I have loved it to death! I miss it everyday.

        • Karen says:

          I LOVE Oahu. My hub’s family is from there and before they moved to California we would go a couple times a year. Did you get the chance to explore Eastern Oahu and the North Shore? Those are my fave parts of the island.

          • Laura says:

            Unfortunately I didn’t go too far, mainly Honolulu and Kailua and all that southern west part. I didn’t have a car so I couldn’t go too too far. I will go back someday I hope, maybe take my boyfriend there on our honeymoon (when we have one).

  4. Twyla says:

    1. Do you usually apply your making sitting down or standing up? I stand up in the Bathroom for daily makeup using a mini mirror for close up – but if its a ‘paint by numbers’ kinda makeup for special evenings then I sit down and use mini mirror and large mirror..Sometimes that smokey eyes is the cats meow up close but from the distance I look like a kid who fell in the eyeshadow pot.

    Ugh the DMV. Have you tried the appointment option with the DMV? I’m here in socal and I renewed my license (new pictures, address change, the whole deal) and I was in and out of there in less than 20 minutes!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Lydia,

      I have, years ago. It still doesn’t completely take the pain away! I’m pretty sure the guy who takes the license pics hates me because he yelled at me last time, but that could also be because I was trying to tilt my head so that he could get my good side, haha!

  7. Danielle says:

  9. Ruchita says:

    1. Do you usually apply your making sitting down or standing up?
    If I’m at home, I’m standing up in the bathroom. But a lot times, I’ll do my makeup in the car. I carpool with my husband to work and he has to be there at 8 AM. I don’t get up early enough to get my makeup done before we leave the house, so I’ll drop him off and finish my makeup before heading to my work.

    2. Have you ever cried at work?
    Yes, but not necessarily about work-related things.

    3. When was the last time you wore body glitter in the daytime?
    Hmm, it’s been years. Maybe back in college.

    4. You just ordered a deli sandwich. Do you eat the pickle it comes with?
    Nope. I am not a fan of pickles.

    5. Share a good memory from your high school years.
    I played a Munchkin in our production of the Wizard of Oz. Some of my friends were also in the show and we had a blast just hanging out together.

    6. Something looming over your head that you need to get done sooner than later?
    Actually nothing too huge. Just some small errands on my to-do list.

    7. What’s your weekend scent?
    Umm…Eau de Cupcake? :-) I don’t have a specific scent, but if I’m baking it’s usually on the weekends.

    8. List your shower routine from start to finish.
    Shampoo my hair, then I apply conditioner and wrap it up on a clip. Wash my face, shave, and body wash. Finally at the end, I rinse out the conditioner. It takes me about 20 mins to shower also. The only way to cut time is to not wash my hair and/or skip shaving. I admit, skipping the shaving happens more often than not in the winter!

    9. What’s your stance on jumpsuits?
    Probably not a look for me, but it looks cute on others.

    10. Have you ever traveled abroad?
    Yep, when I was younger we went to India during the summer to visit relatives. I’ve been do Canada, Mexico and London. I would love to visit more places!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Ruchita,

      How did the cupcakes turn out? :)

      Happy Monday!

      • Ruchita says:

        The cupcakes were really easy to make and came out great! I did some extensive taste testing. :-) I’ll see if I have any good pics to send your way!

        • Karen says:

          Dude, if you were my neighbor you know I’d offer to be your taste tester! :) The strawberries were such a nice touch. Did the band like them?

          • Ruchita says:

            Thanks! I would love to share my treats! That’s part of the fun of making them. Unfortunately practice was canceled, but my husband took them to a get together at a friend’s house and he came back empty handed so I think they were a hit!

            I usually don’t repeat recipes b/c there are so many I want to try, but I might have to make these again b/c they were really good!

    Happy Monday! :)

    1. Do you usually apply your making sitting down or standing up? Standing up (after the shower, before the hair drying).
    2. Have you ever cried at work? Yes, many times. Even sad chain emails make me cry. Luckily I have an office door. :)

    5. Share a good memory from your high school years. I think I have thousands to choose from! I guess I’ll go with the daily good memory of meeting up with my friends before school at the coat racks to hang our stuff up. We had etched our names on the hooks in the far corner because it was so much “our spot”. Not in a jerky way – no one else wanted it or anything.
    6. Something looming over your head that you need to get done sooner than later? Product forecasting. I’m looking at the report right now. And typing this comment instead. HAHA!
    7. What’s your weekend scent? I’m usually perfume-free.

    10. Have you ever traveled abroad? If you count Canada (and you did!), then quite regularly. :) I’ve also been to Mexico, Chile, Italy, France, Switzerland and Austria and briefly to the Netherlands but that was just to change planes so I don’t think that really counts.

    • Karen says:

      Happy Monday to you too, Kim. Color me a little shocked to find that you’ve never done body glitter. For some reason I can see that happening, LOL!

      Aww, your high school memory of the coat racks is so sweet. I was just thinking the other day that I can’t believe there was a time when I got to see Jen and Cindy every day! Do you get to see your high school buddies often?

      • Kim says:

        I know, it’s weird, right? I think it’s because the only body glitter I have was a gift and it’s a shimmering powder. I’m usually slathering on the moisturizer so the powder doesn’t get any use. :)

        Thankfully, yes. There are 5 of us who have been best friends since grade school and still are today. We live quite close to each other and get together regularly (plus running into one another for the kids sports a TON). :) I remember going back to our HS probably 10 years after we graduated and seeing that our names were still on the hooks. Naturally, I started crying like a fruit! The next time I was there (which happened to be last Saturday), I saw that they’ve completely changed that area and the racks are gone. I definitely felt more than a little sadness.

  14. Heidi says:

    1. Do you usually apply your making sitting down or standing up?

    Always sitting down! ; )

    2. Have you ever cried at work?

    Unfortunately, many times. I had several conversations with supervisors about my “inability to compartmentalize” my life.

    3. When was the last time you wore body glitter in the daytime?

    At a Cajun Music festival I went to last summer. Body glitter and Mardi Gras beads, the ultimate fashion statement!

    4. You just ordered a deli sandwich. Do you eat the pickle it comes with?

    Not a pickle fan, no.

    5. Share a good memory from your high school years.

    My friends and I did not have dates for senior prom, so we went to a local pizza place and shut the place down, staying there until closing and burning up the juke box.

    6. Something looming over your head that you need to get done sooner than later?

    Organizing my makeup stash.

    7. What’s your weekend scent?

      Hi Heidi,

      I like Clean too. I went through a phase a few years ago where I wore them all the time. Have you ever sniffed MAC Turquatic? There’s something very Clean-esque about it. You might like it!

    1. Do you usually apply your making sitting down or standing up? – Sitting down.
    2. Have you ever cried at work? Yup, twice. I usually tried to wait till I got home, but there were two instances that broke me.
    3. When was the last time you wore body glitter in the daytime? – Never.
    4. You just ordered a deli sandwich. Do you eat the pickle it comes with? Nah, not a huge fan so I pass it to the husband – he loves them.
    5. Share a good memory from your high school years. Um…*drawing a blank* Seriously, I’ve sat here for 10 minutes trying to think of just one thing, and I can’t…it was all misery, all the time. Even the graduation ceremony sucked.
    6. Something looming over your head that you need to get done sooner than later? – Make an appointment with the cardiologist to officially clear me for marathon training. I’m up to 16 miles at a stretch but I’m afraid to go any further without seeing my doc…been reading horror stories about people keeling over during marathons and how running them might actually be bad for your heart.
    7. What’s your weekend scent? Don’t really have one…I wear a different scent every day based on what I’m doing and the weather.
    8. List your shower routine from start to finish. – On the days I don’t wash my hair or shave, I use a body scrub and wash my face with my Clarisonic, then wash the bod (usually use a Philosophy shower gel or LUSH soap), then wipe down the shower with a Squeegee followed by a sponge to protect the tile…I think this step is what takes me so long, not anything I do in the shower itself!
    9. What’s your stance on jumpsuits? Not crazy about them either on me or on others.
    10. Have you ever traveled abroad? Yup, just a handful of places – Spain, Great Britain, Nova Scotia, France and the Netherlands. Dying to go to Italy!

    • Karen says:

      Hi MM Curator,

      I’ve been to Italy once (for like 48 hours!) and would love to go back some day. Where would you like to visit? I want to go to Rome and to the Cinque Terre.

    Le List

    1. Do you usually apply your making sitting down or standing up? Standing up in the bathroom, my routine is short and simple.
    2. Have you ever cried at work? Unfortunately yes.
    3. When was the last time you wore body glitter in the daytime? Never wore glitter.
    4. You just ordered a deli sandwich. Do you eat the pickle it comes with? Always, sometimes I get extra.
    5. Share a good memory from your high school years. Graduating and leaving it all behind.
    6. Something looming over your head that you need to get done sooner than later? Unpleasant work meeting.
    7. What’s your weekend scent? I wear whatever seems right for the day, my standby is Fresh Sugar and I love Jo Malone Earl Grey and Cucumber.
    8. List your shower routine from start to finish. Shampoo hair, apply conditioner, shave and wash body while conditioner is working its magic, rinse, apply leave in conditioner to soaking hair, blot hair with tshirt, apply styling product and put hair up in clip. Wash my face and I’m out. I only wash hair once, maybe twice a week, so it’s much faster on the off days. Curly hair can be complicated.
    9. What’s your stance on jumpsuits? Love them on other people. Even though I’m tall, I’m curvy and have a larger bust, so they don’t look so good on me. I think they’re often best on tall, lanky women.
    10. Have you ever traveled abroad? Yes. I grew up in Eastern Europe, so I’ve traveled throughout the region as well as some Western European countries. After moving to the US, I’ve traveled extensively here and Canada.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Alice Ann,

      That’s cool that you got to travel around Europe when you were younger. When did you move to the US?

      • Alice Ann says:

        In 1986, when I was 11. I went back in 2001 and travelled around for months with a friend, it was wonderful! I really wish I had more time and money to travel.

  18. Chelsea says:

    1. Do you usually apply your making sitting down or standing up? Sitting in the bathroom sink is my favorite!

    2. Have you ever cried at work?
    I think I’ve cried at every job I’ve ever had! Usually mean customers or bosses, but mostly I’m just a crier.

    3. When was the last time you wore body glitter in the daytime? Halloween! I was a faerie when I went to work.

    4. You just ordered a deli sandwich. Do you eat the pickle it comes with? Sometimes!

    5. Share a good memory from your high school years. We had so much fun in drama class! My favorite was when we did plays for the elementary schools. Once we did Little Red Riding Hood for some first graders, and this guy who was always in trouble for something or other was the Big Bad Wolf. A little girl came up to him and said “Look, it’s a kitty!” and he replied “No, I’m a wolf!” and she retorted “You’re a DORK!”

    6. Something looming over your head that you need to get done sooner than later? This final group project for Advanced Marketing Research Techniques is due Wednesday… so close to the end of the semester!

    7. What’s your weekend scent? I’ve been using L’Occitane in either Cherry Blossom or Green Tea.

    8. List your shower routine from start to finish. If I’m going to wash my hair, I do that first, and then condition. I use either body wash or soap (Dove unscented for either) all over my body while the conditioner is soaking in. I use a foot file on my feet, and then use a nail brush to scrub my nails (fingers and toes) and feet. I rinse out the conditioner, and then I wash my face.

    If I’m shaving, that goes in their after body wash, and I usually use my body wash as a shave cream. I’m a fast showerer.

    9. What’s your stance on jumpsuits? I like them on other people, but I have a long torso so I can’t wear them.

    10. Have you ever traveled abroad? Yes :) France several times (Paris, Cannes, Brest, the Loire), Vienna, Austria, and Stockholm, Sweden. I’ve been to Canada once as a kid, but I live less than an hour from the border, so that doesn’t seem far :p

    • Karen says:

      Hi Chelsea,

      Wow, now I know who to ask for travel recommendations if I ever go back to France. :) Out of the places you’ve visited there, which one’s your favorite?

      • Chelsea says:

        I’m partial to Brittany! I stayed just outside of Brest for my 6 week study abroad, and it’s my favorite place in the world. Great places to go there are St. Malo, Quimper, and Mont St. Michel, which is right on the border between Brittany (Bretagne, in French) and Normandy. Mont Saint Michel is a must-see (most visited tourist destination in France outside of Paris/Versailles) and there are really awesome cookies there too.

        And while you’re ~en Bretagne~ you need to go see Normandy too.

        Both of these regions are quite rainy though.

    5. Share a good memory from your high school years. Sooooooo many, but my favorite was when my teeny tiny high school, 300 kids all together, won the valley championships in football, after not winning any games at all the year before. Nothing brings a tiny school together more than having a winning football team! I still have the newspaper from that game, it’s 20 years old!

  22. Mei says:

    1. Do you usually apply your making sitting down or standing up?

    2. Have you ever cried at work?
    Oh yes. I was very upset. The end.

This can take 5 or 15 minutes, depending on how long since last shower, whether I’ve been on a hike or not, how cold it is in the house, and whether I’m on a schedule!

    I’ve gotten angry teary before when dealing with difficult students or parents, but thankfully never full on bawling.

    3. When was the last time you wore body glitter in the daytime?
    I think it was 2011, on my 21st birthday. It was unintentional, but it worked for the occasion.

    9. What’s your stance on jumpsuits?
    In the right cut and fabric, they can be very chic, but they have to be well fitted. I have a hard time with them being 6′ tall and they are always too tight in the crotch for me since they are usually meant for a shorter person!

    10. Have you ever traveled abroad?
    I lived in the Bahamas on a tiny sailboat as a child, went to the Caymans when I was 8, Canada every year since I was a baby, Japan for a study abroad and the Amazon rainforest in Peru last summer. I spent 2 weeks there working on Jaguar research and then a week hiking Machu Picchu.

    3. When was the last time you wore body glitter in the daytime?

    9. What’s your stance on jumpsuits?
    ~Cute but has to be simple to look professional. And not sure I’d wear them as I prefer a cute dress if I am going with something that is one piece and I don’t have to plan too much of an outfit with it.

    10. Have you ever traveled abroad?
    ~If my cruise to the Caribbean counts, then yes. Otherwise, no, I have not officially crossed “the pond.”

    Late to the party but here goes!

    1. Do you usually apply your making sitting down or standing up? I apply my makeup standing up because I have to stand in front of a full length mirror because I’m that blind without my glasses. :)

    2. Have you ever cried at work? Just did today (well in the work parking lot). I work and live near Boston so as you can imagine it’s been an emotional day. All of my friends and family members are okay thank goodness (even the ones at the finish line).

    3. When was the last time you wore body glitter in the daytime? haha, never.

    4. You just ordered a deli sandwich. Do you eat the pickle it comes with? Yes, always.

    5. Share a good memory from your high school years. Band field trips to competitions. The one to Florida where we played at Universal Studios is one of the best memories of High School.

    6. Something looming over your head that you need to get done sooner than later? Trip planning for work. Few more things to do…in the middle of my busy travel time.

    7. What’s your weekend scent? Orange scented lotion. By Burt’s Bees.

    8. List your shower routine from start to finish. On days I wash my hair I wash it and condition. While the conditioner is on my hair I do all of the other stuff–shaving, body wash etc. I use Aveeno Body wash and Yes to Carrots Conditioner. I (sadly) use head and shoulders for shampoo (darn scalp).

    9. What’s your stance on jumpsuits? You mean for skydiving?

    10. Have you ever traveled abroad? YES! Lots of time on various islands in the Caribbean. 3 trips to Iceland. One trip to Scotland. I can’t wait to see more of Europe.

  33. I feel like I need this to be the MBB Wednesday Poll b/c I always get too busy on Mondays to complete it in a timely fashion! OMG, you are aces: “The flute parts were off the hook! ” Hilairs!

  34. Ok…I’m late as hell but I’m doing this any way! I need the boost!

    1. Do you usually apply your making sitting down or standing up? Sitting down at my makeup table.
    2. Have you ever cried at work? Yes, when I had a HORRIBLE job! I had a boss that was a complete megalomaniac psycho (that’s being kind) who you could NEVER do enough to impress. Come in on a Saturday to reorganize and clean the enormous file room without being asked – FOR FREE b/c overtime was unheard of? “What do you want, a MEDAL? Improving things is YOUR JOB.” OMG, he was awful! I still fantasize about egging his house, lol! Some folks have no idea how much an occasional “thank you” means to an employee!
    3. When was the last time you wore body glitter in the daytime? 1998! I was bout it bout it with the body glitter back in high school. I also loved the gel glitter for eyes. I wanted to *sparkle*, damn it!
    4. You just ordered a deli sandwich. Do you eat the pickle it comes with? If it’s a kosher dill, I’m all in! If it’s a sweet pickle or some form of creepy gherkin, hayell no. Sweet pickles have no place in my life, lol!
    5. Share a good memory from your high school years. Being a part of the gymnastics team for 4 years was amazing and SO much fun! Getting to go to other schools for competitions and exploring them without adult supervision (we liked to sneak off and just look around!) was fantastic. All the girls got along {for the most part} and 2 of my best friends were on the team as well, and we’re still friends today. :)
    6. Something looming over your head that you need to get done sooner than later? Have to go to the doctor for my annual physical, the dentist for my annual teeth cleaning, and the eye doc, possibly to get new reading glasses (or, god forbid, contacts). I cannot do contacts. I can’t stand the thought of touching my eye that often, much less put something in it. Every day. I know millions do it, but I have a real eyeball phobia.
    7. What’s your weekend scent?
    8. List your shower routine from start to finish. Shampoo, rinse, apply Aussie 3 Minute Miracle to the ends of my hair and pin it up. Wash my face, then my body, then shave. Rinse conditioner from hair, all done!
    9. What’s your stance on jumpsuits? They make me look like a complete asshat. Remember balloon jumpsuits from the 90′s? That was last time I successfully (?) rocked a one-piece garment.
    10. Have you ever traveled abroad? Mexico and Puerto Rico, but I don’t think PR counts as it’s a US territory. PR was unreal and I can’t wait to go back. Best food EVER! My dream is to go to Paris.
