The Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll for April 29, 2013

The Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll for April 29, 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. Which side of the bed do you sleep on?
    The left (my right?). El Hub sleeps on my left.

    Which reminds me, he does thing thing where he rolls in his sleep like a log down a hill, and it’s always in the same clockwise direction. When he’s really fired up and just rolling and rolling, I up half the night whispering to him, “Sweetie, roll the other way. You’re rolling again. Go the other way.”

    Haha! Otherwise, he’ll roll me right off the bed. :)

  2. This summer, I hope to __________.
    Make the most of every ray of sunshine, and spend as much time as possible outside.
  3. When was the last time you visited a museum?
    Geez, I honestly can’t remember… Maybe a few years ago to the San Francisco Academy of Sciences.

    Wow, it has been a while. Gotta rectify that.

  4. Would you ever consider letting your hair go completely gray?
    I’ve flirted with the idea. Everyone in my family goes gray early (hair color is my BFF). I think I can picture myself with long, luxurious gray hair, but I’m not ready yet.

    Ask me again in roughly 13 years.

  5. Have you ever lost your phone?
    Thank goodness, no (knock on wood!). That would be right up there with losing my wallet.
  6. Do you like to listen to music in the car?
    Yes, if I’m by myself or with just one other person, but sometimes in a packed car, with the radio blaring and everyone talking at the same time, it’s just too much. I get stimulus overload.
  7. What kind of cake would you like for your birthday?

    Mmm… Cake. A moist and light, melt-in-your-mouth white layer cake with raspberry filling and butter cream frosting, and/or a pistachio ice cream cake from Baskin-Robbins.

  8. Favorite four places to get your grub on in your town?
    Well, Novato isn’t exactly a culinary capital of the world (or the Bay Area), but I have some favorite spots. If you’re ever out this way, try Arun Thai or Tavola for dinner, Marvin’s for breakfast or brunch, and Rustic Bakery for pastries, soups and salads.

    Whoa! My tummy just rumbled…

  9. What are a couple of reasons you like to wear makeup?
    Because it goes great with chronic insomnia, haha. But seriously, I think I look more rested when I’m wearing a little concealer and mascara. And then there’s the whole artistic, creative side of it that I’ve always enjoyed. I also feel like it’s a craft where there’s always room to grow, so it’s challenging in a fun, relaxing way.
  10. If today were T-Shirt Slogan Day, and everyone was wearing a t-shirt with a phrase on the front, what would your t-shirt say?
    “Nobody puts Baby in the corner.”

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

    Karen,
    If Tabs ever wants to visit Kansas, I know a place where you can send him! ;-)

    Le List
    1. Which side of the bed do you sleep on? my side, the pillows live on the other.
    2. This summer, I hope to __________. get away
    3. When was the last time you visited a museum? several years ago
    4. Would you ever consider letting your hair go completely gray? YES I can’t wait. I love gray hair. Then I can tint it pink and I can have the pink version of Kelly Osbourne’s hair.
    5. Have you ever lost your phone? yes but then i just call myself.
    6. Do you like to listen to music in the car? depends on the car ride I use that time to chat with whomever I’m with.
    7. What kind of cake would you like for your birthday? none. I prefer doughnuts (which is what I had) or the Sig Ep (Sigma Phi Episolon) dessert named after a fraternity. It’s oreo cookies, ice cream, and chocolate sauce layered together in a container. It’s delish!
    8. Top four places to eat in your town? Tup Tim Thai, Baker’s Dozen Doughnut Shop, Hazel Hill (the chocolate shop), and Tortilla Jack’s (a ghetto but oh so good mexican place).
    9. What are a couple of reasons you like to wear makeup? Because I love to smear stuff on my face and it actually looks good!
    10. If it’s T-Shirt Slogan Day, what does your t-shirt say? I really want this shirt that says “Stay Calm and Join the Dark Side” complete with Darth Vader Helmet.

  2. Ruchita says:

    1. Which side of the bed do you sleep on?
    Facing the bed, I sleep on the right side. I’m charge of the alarm clock. Nina kitty sleeps in the middle. :-)

    2. This summer, I hope to __________.
    Enjoy the warm weather and hopefully get in a beach vacation.

    3. When was the last time you visited a museum?
    London, last December. I visited the National Gallery. The museums in London don’t have entrance fees.

    4. Would you ever consider letting your hair go completely gray?
    Maybe. I’ve seen some stylish ladies sporting all gray hair. At some point it may look unnatural to keep dying my hair all black.

    In India, I remember older ladies used henna and sometimes it would turn their hair a reddish-orange color.

    5. Have you ever lost your phone?
    Temporarily – luckily it ended up being in my car, wedged between the seats.

    6. Do you like to listen to music in the car?
    Always. We have satellite radio or I use my iPod.

    7. What kind of cake would you like for your birthday?
    Probably this chocolate cake I made this past weekend. I have most of it away, b/c I would probably eat the whole thing if given the chance!

    8. Top four places to eat in your town?
    There is a very fancy restaurant called Doc Henderson’s that’s delicious. There’s also a yummy Mexican place called Crazy Burrito. Other than that, there’s not a whole of unique places where I live. Unfortunately, mostly chain restaurants.

    9. What are a couple of reasons you like to wear makeup?
    It helps me feel put together and confident. When I’m feeling good, I feel more productive and energized during the day.

    10. If it’s T-Shirt Slogan Day, what does your t-shirt say?
    “Meow”. :-)

    Happy Monday!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Ruchita,

      You’re so lucky that Nina sleeps with you! I would LOVE for Tabs to stay in the bed with us at night, but he’s not having that. He will sleep with me in the morning though — just me. :)

      Ooh, tell me about the cake!

      • Ruchita says:

        Nina is a sweetheart. We got lucky with her. I don’t think I mentioned how we got her. We were at my sister-in-law’s house last year for Cinco de Mayo when my husband noticed an animal darting around the backyard. Turned out to be a little, hungry kitty. I hated to leave her there to fend for herself, so we literally catnapped her and brought her home. There was no pet carrier, so I held her in my arms on the drive home.

        So the cake was just a simple chocolate cake with chocolate cream cheese frosting. If you love chocolate, it would be right up your alley! :-)

  3. Katherine G says:

    1. Which side of the bed do you sleep on?
    ~The right side – the fiance is to my right. LOL at your hubby rolling like a log! Sometimes my fiance does the same thing if he can’t sleep well.

    2. This summer, I hope to __________.
    ~Do a ton more kayaking than last summer since we’ve gotten rain and some snow/rain this year, enjoy the summer outside at the pool and running, and spend time with friends and family.

    3. When was the last time you visited a museum?
    ~Not in a while, I think Dulles Air and Space last fall where the SR-71 Blackbird is.

    4. Would you ever consider letting your hair go completely gray?
    ~Not until I felt I was at the right age and time to do it. One of my grandmothers started going grey at my age, 25. The Italian side of my family doesn’t start getting greys until the late 40′s, early 50′s. Either way I’m not anxious to find out if I’m getting grey hairs early or late in my life, so hair dye is my friend right now, too.

    5. Have you ever lost your phone?
    ~No, it is also right up there with losing my wallet. I use my phone for everything and now I can’t run errands or leave the house without it. I don’t want to think about what would happen if I got stranded on the road and didn’t have a charged cell phone to call someone!

    6. Do you like to listen to music in the car?
    ~When I’m also by myself or with a friend – radio and too many people in the car is stimulus overload. I love music when I’m by myself, though.

    7. What kind of cake would you like for your birthday?
    ~Salted caramel :) New fave flavor in every dessert now.

    8. Top four places to eat in your town?
    ~Jersey Mike’s subs for lunch (a native chain to the Jersey shore, but has been popping up all over the East Coast); Rappongi (Best) Sushi (Presidents have ordered from there on the way to Camp David, which is based in Frederick County where I live); Brewer’s Alley (in downtown Frederick City, awesome beer and food); and Ruth Chris Steakhouse in Baltimore (45 minutes from Frederick, but well known for their steaks – on the pricey side of things though at $100 a person). We also have the restaurant Volt (I haven’t actually been to Ruth Chris or Volt yet, but have heard amazing things about them), that is the spawn of Top Chef contestant Brian Voltaggio.

    9. What are a couple of reasons you like to wear makeup?
    ~I am a believer that makeup is meant to enhance, not cover up, so I love to enhance my best features, like my eyes. I also feel more put together, and it shows that I took the time to try and look good rather than just rolled out of bed and didn’t do too much.

    10. If it’s T-Shirt Slogan Day, what does your t-shirt say?
    ~I would probably wear my Shogun Fights walkout shirt representing my friends from my MMA gym, or wear my MMA gym shirt.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Katherine,

      I love salted caramel too. Have you ever had salted caramel ice cream? Oh gosh, SO GOOD! If you live near a Whole Foods, you’ve gotta try Three Twins Salted Caramel Ice Cream. It’s just about the best thing ever.

      • Heidi says:

        Not to horn in on this conversation, but since it’s on topic… I was just at Starbucks today and had their Salted Caramel Cake Pop. OMG!!! So good!

      • Katherine G says:

        Salted caramel ice cream is AMAZING! My hubby can’t stand the flavor but I am in love with anything salted caramel. Georgetown Cupcake has salted caramel cupcakes (Georgetown Cupcake is amazing and if you ever visit DC, you must go there), and TGI Friday’s has a salted caramel cake on their dessert menu…with salted caramel icing. If you have a TGI Friday’s near you, check them out and see if they have that cake!

    5. Have you ever lost your phone? Once, I actually forgot my purse (with my phone in it) in a train station. It was a real tragedy.

    6. Do you like to listen to music in the car? Oh yea I love it. I tend to turn it off in the city, cause I want to be able to hear other’s cars coming and passing.

    7. What kind of cake would you like for your birthday? I’d love my mom’s famous ginger and pineapple pie.

    8. Top four places to eat in your town? Côté Cour is soooo awesome. It’s a one-star quality restaurant. Then there’s Geisha Sushi. Pizza Capri has won the heart of pizza lovers for more than 30 years now. And finally I wanna pick the Yoji, because of their Korean barbecues.

    9. What are a couple of reasons you like to wear makeup? Because it makes me pretty, because it captures the mood I’m in, because without it I would feel naked.

    10. If it’s T-Shirt Slogan Day, what does your t-shirt say? Money can’t buy love, but it can buy lipstick!

  6. Twyla says:

  7. Alice Ann says:

    1. Which side of the bed do you sleep on? Always on the left, I barely move while I sleep.
    2. This summer, I hope to __________. Get some rest, enjoy some sun, and maybe get away to Southern California so I can swim in the ocean. I’ll be taking a few classes and my parents are coming for an extended visit, so I will need the rest afterwards.
    3. When was the last time you visited a museum? Oh, this is sad…last year for the Francesca Woodman show at the SFMOMA.
    4. Would you ever consider letting your hair go completely gray? I actually did, for six months as an experiment. I’ve been coloring my hair since my early teens and I decided to take a break and see my natural hair color. I found that I have more gray than I thought, and I also noticed that people treated me differently. Mostly, though, I just like the look of my hair when it’s dyed, so I went back to it.
    5. Have you ever lost your phone? No, knocking on wood.
    6. Do you like to listen to music in the car? Mainly when I’m by myself, it becomes too distracting when there’s conversation at the same time.
    7. What kind of cake would you like for your birthday? Strawberry shortcake with freshly made whipped cream. Sadly, my birthday is in December and the strawberries are not very good in the dead of winter.
    8. Top four places to eat in your town? It’s hard to choose. I love Boot and Shoe Service in Oakland for their lovely seasonal pizza and salads, and amazing cocktails. The Brown Sugar Kitchen, also in Oakland, for breakfast/brunch, especially the waffles. Crixa Cakes in Berkeley for amazing pastries and desserts, especially any of the Hungarian treats. Binh Minh Quan in downtown Oakland for Vietnamese food, I love everything there, but my favorite is the crab fried rice.
    9. What are a couple of reasons you like to wear makeup? I like that even just a little bit of makeup can make me look better (more awake, even toned), and it’s fun to try different colors, looks, etc. I love the way color can transform my face.
    10. If it’s T-Shirt Slogan Day, what does your t-shirt say? Hang in there, with a picture of a kitten.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Alice Ann,

      Re: your t-shirt — I had that poster on my wall when I was a kid. :)

      Thank you for the great East Bay food recs. I’m always looking for new places to eat.

    • Jaye Brown says:

      Oh my, Brown Sugar Kitchen is amazing, and those waffles! And that apple cider syrup! We were in the Bay area last year and stopped in there for breakfast one morning. I think about it at least once a week. And their house coffee is great as well. We even brought some back to Austin with us.

    3. When was the last time you visited a museum? Oh my. I honestly cannot recall. It has been at least a few years since I’ve been to a museum.

    4. Would you ever consider letting your hair go completely gray? I would. I don’t colour my hair and I already see bunches of gray popping up. I think it looks distinguished.

    5. Have you ever lost your phone? Thankfully, no.

    6. Do you like to listen to music in the car? I do! I usually prefer something upbeat, but not dance or electronic. Music makes me happy.

    7. What kind of cake would you like for your birthday? Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate. And it needs to be ooey, gooey and rich. If cake is not rich, I don’t see the point.

    8. Top four places to eat in your town? I’m a vegetarian so the first place on my list is, and will always be, Chu Chai. AMAZING food, even for the carnivores out there. Chu Chai is a sit down restaurant that requires a reservation. Next door they have a bistro with different fare. It is called Chuch, and it too is scrumptious! I’m a big fan of eggplant parmigiana so my next choice would be Del Friscos. Yummy! Finally, I love Chinese food. There is a little place called Wok Café. It is cheap and delicious. Perfection! Of note, I live in Montreal, Canada and there are so many amazing places to eat. I’m sure you would get a very different list from almost anyone else who lives here. ;)

    9. What are a couple of reasons you like to wear makeup? The main reason I wear makeup is because it boosts my self confidence and puts a bounce in my step. I also like to try new things and experiment with colour. I think I am an artist at heart and this is my main outlet for self expression.

    10. If it’s T-Shirt Slogan Day, what does your t-shirt say? Hi!

  12. camille says:

    1. Which side of the bed do you sleep on?
    When facing the bed, I sleep on the right. I noticed that The Man gravitates toward my side, with or without me in the bed. So…I sleep on the extreme right side. :( We need twin beds, like the Ricardo’s!

    2. This summer, I hope to __________.
    Keep studying and find a decent job! :) and to stay cool. It’s our second summer in the desert. AC on blast, all summer. :(

    3. When was the last time you visited a museum?
    I can’t recall, but maybe September 2012. I went to SF MoMA with a friend, when I went home. I love that museum. Maybe next trip home, I’ll finally visit Legion of Honor.

    4. Would you ever consider letting your hair go completely gray?
    Oh, I LOVE that look. When my grey takes over, I will definitely go full grey! I want to do it now, but I think my professional colleagues might not understand that choice.

    5. Have you ever lost your phone?
    No, thank GOD. I lost my clutch that had my license and debit card, once. That is WAY easier to replicate than a phone. No more Oktoberfest. LoL

    6. Do you like to listen to music in the car?
    Always. It’s usually just me in the car, so there always needs to be a soundtrack. When there’s people, we just turn it down.

    7. What kind of cake would you like for your birthday?
    Birthday passed, but I LOVE lemon cake with lemon frosting. Or white cake with fresh strawberries in the middle, with buttercream frosting. nom nom nom. I want cake now.

    8. Top four places to eat in your town?
    Sushi Twister is our favourite local sushi place. Wicked Spoon at Cosmopolitan was DELICIOUS. Texas De Brazil was super good, if you like meat, meat, and more meat. In N Out never fails. But it just tastes better in CAlifornia :)

    9. What are a couple of reasons you like to wear makeup?
    I like how it lightens my dark circles. People say that women look great without make up, but I think that’s BS. I mean, some can pull it off because they just have great natural skin, but I know a lot of women who battle with dark circles, and the environment just does not treat our skin well, so a little cover up and colour makes us look perkier.

    10. If it’s T-Shirt Slogan Day, what does your t-shirt say?
    “Girls just wanna have fun.” I’m visiting my sister and that’s our ringtones. Our childhood movie. :) We’re dropping off our dad at the airport, then headed to the mall for an afternoon of girly sister (window) shopping. :)

    HAPPY MONDAY, KAREN & TABS! Hope it’s a lovely one!

    • Karen says:

    2. This summer, I hope to __________. Get installed in our new apartment and really make it a warm and comfy home!

    3. When was the last time you visited a museum? February. The museum of zoology, archaelogy and geology in Lausanne. Was great!

    4. Would you ever consider letting your hair go completely gray? Never! The moment I detect my first gray hair, I am running to the salon.

    5. Have you ever lost your phone? No. Did drop one in the toilet once though.

    6. Do you like to listen to music in the car? Anything I can sing along with.

    7. What kind of cake would you like for your birthday? A very chocolatey one! No cream.

    I haven’t been able to do one of the Monday polls in forever! It’s good to be back :)

    Le List

    1. Which side of the bed do you sleep on?
    The left! I need my body pillow/nest, so that way it doesn’t creep into the middle of the bed.

    2. This summer, I hope to __________.
    Start making wedding plans. We’ve been engaged since November, and I’m still no closer to being able to answer “have you set a date?”

    December 2011… Talked my guy into taking me to the Museum of Man in Balboa Park when we visited San Diego.

    4. Would you ever consider letting your hair go completely gray?
    Absolutely. I have several early graying family members, and even though I haven’t really found any yet, I’ve already decided to go gray gracefully. I’ve even considered dying it silver once there’s more gray than blonde.

    5. Have you ever lost your phone?
    Never permanently, but I’ve definitely misplaced it a bunch.

        I think you are talking about Pacific Cafe in the Richmond(love that place too. where else can you drink glasses of wine on the street with strangers while you wait for a table?)
        I have only ever been to the Pacific Catch in the Sunset- 9th ave across from GG Park. But there are 4 locations, including one in Corte Madera. Finding a place to eat dinner that both grownups and kids enjoy is a chore- but all the kids we have taken really like the food here. and the cocktail menu is nice for us. They even offer no alcohol mock-tails, which my daughter loves! Check them out, you might like.

    No, I don’t think I would consider letting my hair go completely gray when I am older. It looks fine on some people but I don;t think it would look nice on me :(
    No, I don’t think I have ever lost my phone… I have it usually on my jeans or coat pocket…but I lost so many umbrellas, handbags and bags I avoid going out with one. I always put them on a surface, for a second, and forget all about it…I don’t know why…maybe it is a medical condition :)
    Yes, I like to listen to music in the car.
    My favorite cake, and therefore what I like for my birthday, is fresh pineapple cake with whip cream. It is the best :)
    We just moved to Boston, recently, so we don’t have 4 top places we like to eat yet. We are still exploring and discovering new places at this point.
    I like to wear makeup because it brightens my day, I love to play with the colors, and textures, and it always makes me look so much better, no matter how tired or sleepy I look. Insomnia anyone?… :)
    Love T Shirts with slogans…”Think Different”: for all the Mac Users out there :). One of my faves I have says “If found return to Europe” and if I am in a worse mood “People like you is why people like me need medication”
    Love the poll and the kitty comics :) Happy Monday. xo, Elsa and James Snow

    An ice cream cake, please! And if it’s an extra special birthday, maybe something from Extraordinary Desserts?

  44. Vanessa says:

    I was rather interested in reading people’s answer to #9

    9. What are a couple of reasons you like to wear makeup?

    My answer: make-up is little colored toys! You get to touch it, twist it, and interact with it. It’s like little fairy dust (or potion) that you apply for a little touch of magic (glam).

    Also, it’s so darn collectible. I get this picture in my mind of the perfectly efficient collection of fairy potion — just a little pinch of this potion and a bit of that potion… It’s fun to think about to take a break during the day :)
