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.
- Around what time would you wake up naturally if you didn’t set an alarm?
It depends a lot on the light in the room. Nowadays, I wake up just before six, right about the time the sun comes up.
Of course, when I stay at hotels with those cool-@ss, real-deal blackout curtains, it’s ON! I can literally sleep until noon in a pitch-black room.
- How long are your fingernails right now?
About a quarter of an inch past my fingertips, and quite frankly they’re driving me CRAY! I need to trim them desperately, but I’ve been lazy…
- What’s something beauty something beauty-related that you think you’re pretty good at?
Curling my hair. I’ve been doing it since I was 13. Large-barrel curlers with clamps are my weapons of choice.
- Would you rather be on stage or in the audience?
- What do you see when you look out your living room window?
Grass-covered hills in the distance and old oak trees. I see a family of finches in the closest tree quite often, too.
- Is the glass half-full or half-empty?
Half-full, most days.
- How short do you like your shorts?
Dressy shorts, about midway down my thigh, but I’ll take my beach shorts super short! I figure, might as well while I still can.
- A scent that always makes you scrunch your nose, ewww!
Canned dog food.
When I a teenager, I was in charge of feeding our lab, Bell, every morning, and the smell of his food always made me gag.
- Are you wearing bronzer today?
You know it! Guerlain Terra Nerolia.
- Are you a hugger?
Definitely. I hug strangers, friends and people who look like they need a little cheering up.
