Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 275

Published in: Just For Fun

We meet again, friend!

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. Have you ever had a bunk bed?
    No, and I desperately wanted one. I begged and pleaded with my parents every year as a child, even though I had my own room and didn’t have to share one with my brother.

    I just liked the idea of sleeping in the upper bunk of a bunk bed. It seemed like the coolest thing ever for sleepovers and impromptu forts constructed with blankets and whatnot.

  2. Are you working on any self-improvement projects?
    Yup, time management.

    I can’t say it’s a new project, though, because I’ve been working on it for, oh, about 38 years, LOL!

    I’m also trying to increase my upper body strength — you know, so I can change the 5-gallon water jugs myself and open bottles of pasta sauce without asking for help.

  3. When was the last time you wore a fancy formal gown?
    My wedding in July of 2006.
  4. How long does it take you to do your eye makeup in the morning?
    Usually between 5-15 minutes. Longer if I plan to take face pics.
  5. How many different places have you lived?
    Eight, from the time I was born until now.
  6. This week I’d like to [FILL IN THE BLANK].
    Remember to stop and smell the roses every day, and finish working by 6 every night (7 at the absolute latest!).
  7. When was the last time you went to Vegas (have you ever been to Vegas)?
    It’s been a minute, that’s for sure. I think it was Blogworld back in 2009.

    I want to go back, but not because I’m a big gambler (other than playing Kitty Glitter). I want to go back for the sights, the spas and the good restaurants.

  8. What’s your favorite doughnut?
    Ooh! That’s a tough one. Glazed, or plain cake doughnuts, especially with a cup of coffee in the morning.

    And if I’m feeling extra fancy, lemon jelly-filled. :)

  9. How often do you prepare meals for yourself?
    Daily. Working as a demanding kitty supermodel’s personal assistant, I find that it’s usually quicker to prepare a quick lunch in the kitchen here at the office than it is to go out.

    El Hub and I will do takeout once or twice a week — usually Thai, Japanese or Mexican — but most nights we eat in.

  10. Did you have any posters on your bedroom walls as a kid or when you were a teenager?
    SO MANY! — but the cheesiest one, by far, was the huge New Kids on the Block poster next to my desk, haha!

    Second cheesiest: that one with the fluffy kitten hanging by its paws from the tree branch with the words, “Hang in there.” I had that one on the back of my closest door.

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

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    6. This week I’d like to get some products from the Mac all about orange collection.

      Hi Laura,

      How funny! Vegas is an interesting place. I mostly like it for the shopping, spas, shows and restaurants. :)

      • Laura says:

        That’s why I want to go too. Gambling is not really my thing. My boyfriend has never been to the US, I think Vegas would be a nice first time.
        What do you recommend in particular? Anything we shouldn’t miss?

  2. Eva says:

    1. Have you ever had a bunk bed?
    Yes! And my dad made it himself (he is a great hobby carpenter). I loved it, and my sister and I would take turns on the top bunk, which we both adored.

    2. Are you working on any self-improvement projects?
    Uh… does trying not to stress about things I can’t change count?

    3. When was the last time you wore a fancy formal gown?
    Senior prom in High School, I think. It was a lovely long off-the-shoulder number. I was so excited about it I totally forgot to do my makeup.

    4. How long does it take you to do your eye makeup in the morning?
    15 – 25 minutes. No, it’s not elaborate, I’m just rather slow.

    5. How many different places have you lived?
    Four, I think. I’m counting all the moving around in one town during my student years as one.

    6. This week I’d like to [FILL IN THE BLANK].
    Run at least 15 miles!

    7. When was the last time you went to Vegas?
    Never been. I’m not sure I would, if I ever go to the States again. I’d really much prefer a tour of the national parks.

    8. What’s your favorite doughnut?
    We only have one kind of REAL doughnuts on this side of the Atlantic: the ones without a hole, filled with apricot jam and deep-fried! I’m not sure an American would call them doughnuts, but they’re awesome.

    9. How often do you prepare meals for yourself?
    Daily. I’m allergic, and I need to watch what I eat fairly carefully. So it’s just easier if I make it myself.

    10. Did you have any posters on your bedroom walls as a kid or when you were a teenager?
    No, but I did have a quote from “Dune” (Fear is the mind killer…) and a big picture of a unicorn. Yes, I know. :-)

  3. Lauren says:

    1. Have you ever had a bunk bed? No, but I wish I had the type where the bed’s on top, and instead of a bed on bottom, there’s a little desk area. Always thought those were so cool!

    7. When was the last time you went to Vegas? Probably a couple years ago when my parent went.
    8. What’s your favorite doughnut? Glazed, of course!
    9. How often do you prepare meals for yourself? All the time, I’m on a limited budget now that i’m in college, so in the interest of saving money I make my own meals about 90% of the time.
    10. Did you have any posters on your bedroom walls as a kid or when you were a teenager? I still do! But my mom’s fastidious about keeping the walls clean, so all my posters were on my little cork board.

      Hi Stacie!

  6. Ru says:

    1. Have you ever had a bunk bed?
    Yes in college. I wanted to top but found out it was hot up there so I got the bottom. It felt like a cave and fully protected. It was great.

    2. Are you working on any self-improvement projects?
    Yes… and no? I always feel like I am but currently not really. Ramadan is coming up, which is a wholly self-improvement of mind body and soul so that will be my focus next month.

    10. Did you have any posters on your bedroom walls as a kid or when you were a teenager?
    I did… but I don’t remember them!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Ru,

      I hope that your visit with your inlaws isn’t too rough. Hang in there. :)

      That’s cool that you’ve lived in different countries. I’ve always wanted to live abroad! Where did you live?

      • Ru says:

        Thanks Karen! I was born in another country- Bangladesh and lived there until I moved to the US in NYC. Lived there for most of my life, moved to Long Island (same state, COMPLETELY different than the city though) and then moved to DC where I reside now. I’m jealous of you on the west coast there… I love it there!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Barb,

      Lucky you that your hubs loves to cook! I’m so jealous.

      When I was a kid I loved Duran Duran too. Which guy was your favorite? I was all about Nick Rhodes.

  8. Alice Ann says:

    1. Have you ever had a bunk bed? I don’t know if this counts, but I had a loft bed when I lived in a small cottage. It was good to have extra space, but I didn’t like sleeping so high up, I was always scared I would fall off in the middle of the night.

I love to stay in a good hotel and use the luxury amenities, lay out by the pool, etc. There are some really interesting and fun things to do and see, one of my favorites is the vintage neon sign museum in the desert just outside of Vegas.
    8. What’s your favorite doughnut? It’s been several years since I’ve had a donut, but it would have to be either glazed or the regular cake, also with coffee! Although, there’s a place called Dynamo Donuts in SF that has amazing salted caramel donuts, so if that was an option I would have one of those.
    9. How often do you prepare meals for yourself? Every day. I get a CSA box every week so that makes it easier. 10. Did you have any posters on your bedroom walls as a kid or when you were a teenager?

  11. Katherine G (now Katherine M) says:

    1. Have you ever had a bunk bed?
    ~No, but I also always wanted one as a kid. They are great for forts and having friends over :), and they save space.

    2. Are you working on any self-improvement projects?
    ~I am working on not getting overwhelmed when I have a lot going on at once and taking things one by one. On the outside I will appear calm and cool to most people (except those that know me really well), but on the inside my mind is racing a million miles a minute. I am doing better with this each day, but I have found as I’ve gotten older I’ve gotten better with it. I am also working on fitness, and I’ve learned that while plans are great, I need to be flexible. If for example, I can’t achieve holding a forearm stand for a minute yet (but it’s on the “plan” for the day), what can I do to help my forearm stand or make the exercise effective? Reps are great, but it’s how effective they are and how well I’m doing them that makes the workout. I’ve also learned that it’s ok to have to take my time or modify the exercise to achieve the Workout of the Day in CrossFit.

    3. When was the last time you wore a fancy formal gown?
    ~My wedding on May 31. And it was actually pretty comfy since I wore flip flops with it!

    4. How long does it take you to do your eye makeup in the morning?
    ~Anywhere from 2 to 20 minutes – depends on if I’m just doing liner and mascara or a complicated, colorful eye look.

    5. How many different places have you lived?
    ~So far 3 – Wheaton, Olney, and now Frederick (all in MD).

    6. This week I’d like to [FILL IN THE BLANK].
    ~have great workouts, achieve some goals with my workouts, get all of my Thank You notes sent, and not get overwhelmed or worried (or at least TOO overwhelmed or worried).

    7. When was the last time you went to Vegas?
    ~I haven’t been but my husband went in Sept 2010.

    8. What’s your favorite doughnut?
    ~I love the red velvet one from Dunkin Donuts :).

    9. How often do you prepare meals for yourself?
    ~My husband and I are on/off with it….when we are less busy we prepare our own meals and do good grocery shopping all the time, but when we get super busy we tend to eat out more. We are trying to stay on the “on” trend, so far we are doing pretty well. When we are on the “on” trend the only time we eat out is on weekends, or just for a special night out. We typically make our own coffee and quick breaky in the morning (English muffin with butter and jam, or a bagel with cream cheese/peanut butter), pack our own lunches/dinners, and make quick dinners after work. If we do eat fast food we try to make it healthy, like Subway or Panera.
    10. Did you have any posters on your bedroom walls as a kid or when you were a teenager?

  12. Sondra says:

    1. Yes, I had a bunkbed for about 8 years. (I’m the oldest of 6 kids) I always slept on the top since I was the oldest. I used to play a game with my sister where she would stick her head out & I would spit & she would have to see how fast she could pull her head out of the way. She always wanted to take a turn being on the top bunk but I would never let her. Ha ha!!!

    2. No, I can’t say that I am. But I am looking for a new job which takes a lot of time. =(

    3. Last time I wore a fancy formal gown was when I was 18 at my debutante ball. (about 25 years ago)

    4. Maybe 10 min to do eye makeup. Nothing fancy here.

    5. Basically just So Cal (many different apartments) and I lived in Japan for about a year and a half.

    6. This week I’d like to spend time with my Auntie. (she’s not in the best health & she never married so she doesn’t have a hubby or kids to take care of her)

    7. VEGAS!!! Can’t remember the last time but I’m headed there at the end of this month!

    8. Old fashioned glazed. MMmmmm donuts.

    9. Pretty much every night.

    10. No, my parents didn’t like us to do that. =(

  13. Natasha says:

    Hi Karen,
    I’m breathing right there with you!

    1. Have you ever had a bunk bed?
    Yes. When I was a camp counselor — of course, the kids got the top bunks. Do multi-level sleeper cars on a train count? I took a few and they were fun… but the upper bunks were MUCH harder to get into!

    2. Are you working on any self-improvement projects?
    Time and stress management. I am not going to get over=frazzled to the point of not being able to move until I see a chiropractor again this summer…(although I do have the chiro on speed=dial…) Making time for morning exercise and scheduling regular massages.

    3. When was the last time you wore a fancy formal gown?
    High school for prom?

    4. How long does it take you to do your eye makeup in the morning?
    10 minutes average…. if I’m in a rush, it’s just some cream shadow and some mascara which takes about a minute.

    5. How many different places have you lived?
    I counted towns as opposed to all apartments/houses and came up with 16. Which is why I hope we never move again…(although we will be spending 2 months in Hawaii next year for hubby’s sabbatical… but that’s not a bad thing…)

    6. This week I’d like to [FILL IN THE BLANK].
    Get all my supplies organized for summer’s start on Thursday.

    7. When was the last time you went to Vegas?
    We stopped for gas there in February… but the last time we visited was 5 years ago for a family reunion. I loved all the shows and looking at the crazy hotels.

    8. What’s your favorite doughnut?
    Cruller.

    9. How often do you prepare meals for yourself?
    Most of the time. I am very fond of convenience foods such as pre-chopped veggies and store-roasted chickens. We end up eating pizza about once a month and take-away Mexican about once a week.

    10. Did you have any posters on your bedroom walls as a kid or when you were a teenager?
    All over my room… movie posters (I wish I still had my original Star Wars poster!)and silly posters.

  14. Denise S. says:

    1. Have you ever had a bunk bed?
    Yes I have 3 sisters and we always had bunk beds growing up. I usually took the bottom bed. But I remember falling off the top bunk once, lucky I didn’t break my neck! lol
    2. Are you working on any self-improvement projects?
    Sign up for CPR. Keep reading my professional journals to stay current with the latest practices
    3. When was the last time you wore a fancy formal gown?
    Can’t think of any other time except my wedding in 1989. But I got to dress up at a few fancy events for my husbands job. I have a few pretty gowns on standby, waiting for an event,lol
    4. How long does it take you to do your eye makeup in the morning
    15-20 minutes
    5. How many different places have you lived?
    A lot since my husband trained for his profession in several states. I’ve lived in Baltimore, DC, Houston, Little Rock, Cleveland and Tampa

    6. This week I’d like to [FILL IN THE BLANK
    Be more social able, I’m a little too reclusive lately!
    7. When was the last time you went to Vegas?
    I’ve never been there.I don’t gamble but like you I’d love to sight-see and shop there. We used to take bus trips to Atlantic city when I was young, which seems like a mini Vegas
    8. What’s your favorite doughnut?
    Krispy Cream’s glazed chocolate donuts are heavenly!
    9. How often do you prepare meals for yourself?
    Weekdays I cook. We go out or buy takeout on the weekend
    10. Did you have any posters on your bedroom walls as a kid or when you were a teenager?
    The Jackson Five poster is the only one I can think of

  15. 1. Have you ever had a bunk bed? I did! I had 1 at my grandmother’s house and I slept on the top bunk. Then my folks bought me one with the twin top and a futon bottom, and I slept on the bottom because it was so HUGE! When you’re 12, a full sized futon mattress seems like the lap of luxury!
    2. Are you working on any self-improvement projects? Being on time. I get distracted easily and will start some ridiculously time-consuming project when I have 5 minutes left to be somewhere. I don’t know why I always have the delusional thought that I can get it done and get where I need to be on time? I was early to work 4 days last week and early to meet a friend for dinner Thursday. I was so proud of myself!
    3. When was the last time you wore a fancy formal gown? I went as a friend’s date to their college formal back in ’99 and I wore my beautiful navy blue prom dress. I was so excited to get a second use out of it!
    4. How long does it take you to do your eye makeup in the morning? 5-15 minutes as well, unless I just decide I ain’t got time for that and only do mascara and primer.
    5. How many different places have you lived? A lot, but always in GA or FL.
    6. This week I’d like to [FILL IN THE BLANK]. Tell my boss I decided I cannot take on the workload of a co-worker who recently left. I thought I could do it, but it was HALF of his whole job, plus my own job duties, and I was stressed to the point of tears 4 times. I love my job and cannot take on another person’s 1/2 job without it taking an enormous toll on my stress level and affecting the quality of my regular duties. I always think I can keep taking things on, but this time I’m going to stand up for myself and just say no. I’m a little nervous about it because I hate admitting something is “too much” for me, but i know I will feel a huge weight lifted off of me after I do it.
    7. When was the last time you went to Vegas? Never! I’d love to go at least once just to see the sights and restaurants and shows and maybe even try some craps. ;)
    8. What’s your favorite doughnut? Chocolate creme powdered…mmmm.
    9. How often do you prepare meals for yourself? About twice a week. I want to do it more often, but it’s hard when I don’t get home from work until 6 and I’m tired. I love cooking and baking though! I need to plan better and have the ingredients on hand as opposed to having to stop at the store before going home to cook.
    10. Did you have any posters on your bedroom walls as a kid or when you were a teenager? OMG, there’s definitely a shot of me sitting cross-legged on the floor fastidiously working on something involving Crayolas and a giant NKOTB poster is looming large and in charge in the background! I will totally post that as my #TBT on Instagram this week if I can find it. I have a bowl cut, too. It’s pretty sweet!

    10. Did you have any posters on your bedroom walls as a kid or when you were a teenager?: I think I had a Milli Vanilli poster. I was very young. I didn’t know any better. Generally, I was not allowed to decorate my walls, so I didn’t get to put up as many posters as I would have liked.

  19. Megan says:

    1.Have you ever had a bunk bed?

    Yes, because at one point I was sharing a room with my little sister. I liked it, I kinda wish I still had one, I’d probably still build forts.

    2.Are you working on any self-improvement projects?
    Yes, I’ve been trying to focus on what I eat, and convert my “dieting” mentality to a “healthy-eating is my lifestyle” mentality!

    Senior Prom, 2006.

    4.How long does it take you to do your eye makeup in the morning?

    Depends on if I’ve woken up late. In the past couple of weeks, I’ve woken up 20 minutes before I’m supposed to be leaving for work, and end up doing my makeup in the car in the parking lot D: If that’s not the case, usually around 10-15 minutes or so.

    5.How many different places have you lived?
    Four.

    6.This week I’d like to [FILL IN THE BLANK].

    I’ve never been! I’d love to go to Vegas, just to see how different it is.

    8.What’s your favorite doughnut?

    Oh man. What a hard question! I really like just plain cake donuts,so Dunkin Donuts is a winner in my book. If I want glazed, it’s gotta be Krispy Kreme original glazed or Raspberry Jelly filled.

    9.How often do you prepare meals for yourself?

    I try to prepare most of my meals, just because it saves so much money! However, I will admit to being one of the weird ones that would rather go splurge at Whole Foods on something new and exciting instead of buying a new shirt or something,haha.

    10.Did you have any posters on your bedroom walls as a kid or when you were a teenager?
    Haha, I wasn’t so much a poster fan as I was of making collages with notes from friends and pictures and such.

  20. Yogirl says:

    1. Have you ever had a bunk bed? No, and I have never slept in the upper bed.. and I never will!
    2. Are you working on any self-improvement projects? Time-management, and of course trying to clear my appartment every night before I go to bed, because I can make a mess within seconds when I come home. And it is so more relaxing when I wake up in the morning.

    1. Have you ever had a bunk bed?

    2. Are you working on any self-improvement projects?
    Trying to clean up around the house and be less of a slob.

    3. When was the last time you wore a fancy formal gown?
    Senior prom, 2005.

    4. How long does it take you to do your eye makeup in the morning?

    6. This week I’d like to [FILL IN THE BLANK].
    Finish all my dishes! I hadn’t done dishes in forever and I don’t have a dishwasher, so it’s taking forever and it’s gross. :/

    7. When was the last time you went to Vegas?
    2009 or 2010 – my friend’s mom was taking their family to see Aerosmith and had an extra ticket. It was super fun, we ended up drinking with some British guys in an Irish pub all night after the concert.

    8. What’s your favorite doughnut?
    I don’t like donuts, they always make me feel sick.

    9. How often do you prepare meals for yourself?
    Maybe 1-2 times a week when I’m busy, 4-5 times a week when I’m not as swamped. I should cook more, but it’s hard to cook for one person, and I have a lot of dietary restrictions so it’s a pain.

    10. Did you have any posters on your bedroom walls as a kid or when you were a teenager?
    Oh yeah! Middle school I had a lot of anime posters and wall scrolls – Sailor Moon, Dragonball Z, stuff like that. High school and college, it was The Crow, Sin City, free posters I got at Comic-Con.

    • Katie F says:

      I forgot, I also had a bunk bed with my roommate one year in college – I made her sleep on the top because sometimes I fall out of bed. I felt a little bad, since I’m 5’1″ and she was 5’7″, but I didn’t want a concussion!

  22. Ruchita says:

    1. Have you ever had a bunk bed?
    Yes, when we first moved to the US from India I think we lived in an already furnished apartment and it had a bunk bed. When I got older, I really wanted a fancy canopy bed with pink bedding.

    2. Are you working on any self-improvement projects?
    Just on the exercise front. Life has been busy and I need to get back in the groove.

    3. When was the last time you wore a fancy formal gown?
    I was a bridesmaid in my best friend’s wedding back in 2004.

    4. How long does it take you to do your eye makeup in the morning?
    5-15 minutes depending on how complicated the look is.

    Only 4. We moved to Ohio (from Utah) when I was in 4th grade and have been here ever since.

    Never been. I’d love to go and see a Cirque de Soleil show.

    8. What’s your favorite doughnut?
    My current fave are these strawberry donuts I picked up today from a local farm market. They’re made from strawberries they grow themselves..

    9. How often do you prepare meals for yourself?
    Rarely just for myself. If I cook it’s for me and my husband. A “meal” for myself usually consists of a bowl of cereal. :-)

    10. Did you have any posters on your bedroom walls as a kid or when you were a teenager?
    Yes, a ton. I know I had a bunch of band posters. One of my faves was a U2 poster for their CD Achtung Baby. I still have it and my husband hung it our music room (aka spare bedroom with all my husbands instruments).

    *sigh* I just realized I’m old enough to remember buying CDs and casettes! :-)

    Have a great Monday! Also, happy belated birthday. Hope it was a good one!

  23. Chelsea says:

    1. Have you ever had a bunk bed? Yes, at a couple points in my life! I had one when I was quite young that I shared with my older brother, and then I had one in middle school, the main people who used the top bunk were my BFF and my cousin.

    2. Are you working on any self-improvement projects? I’m incorporating exercise into my life (which is made difficult by a heart condition, but it improves that heart condition when I do it) and trying to eat more vegetables. I love eating vegetables, I don’t love preparing them.

    3. When was the last time you wore a fancy formal gown? Hmm… It would be maybe 5 or 6 years ago, when I lived up north – my friend Caeleigh wanted a picture of me in a formal gown in a junkyard for a photography project.

    4. How long does it take you to do your eye makeup in the morning? Depends on how much I put on! If I just do eyeliner and mascara (which is pretty often), it only takes a few minutes. Otherwise, 5-10.

    5. How many different places have you lived? Define “places”. I’ve lived in four different apartments in the town I currently live in (and am moving to a house in the same town in a few months), three homes in my hometown, and I did a study abroad in Brest, so I count that too.

    9. How often do you prepare meals for yourself? I’m not the biggest fan of cooking, so not as often as I should.

    10. Did you have any posters on your bedroom walls as a kid or when you were a teenager? Yup! I had a really nice fairy poster, some various Paris/France posters, a System of a Down poster… probably some others I’m forgetting!

    4. How long does it take you to do your eye makeup in the morning?
    I don’t wear fancy eye make up. I’m a scaredy cat with that. I just put on the corrector, concealer, powder, and curl my lashes. If I’m feeling fancy, I’ll apply mascara. Takes about 10 minutes, because I like to take my time :)

    Well, I live here now. It’s an ok place to live, but it ain’t no Nor*Cal! It’s true: you don’t really appreciate things til they’re gone. We moved from the Marysville, CA area, and it was pretty…..drab, but I was still able to drive to the Bay to see my friends. Now…..It’s a tan-riffic 8+ hours to home. Trying to remind myself of the cool stuff over here, but I can’t wait to PCS/move.

    8. What’s your favorite doughnut?
    Maple bar. MMmmmmmm. Or an old fashioned cake donut. MMMmmmmm. There’s a Dunkin Donuts here, so I’m pretty stoked about that. Couldn’t really find a Dunkin in Cali. :/

    9. How often do you prepare meals for yourself?
    I try to be good and prepare meals for The Man and myself, every weeknight. When I’m just fricken lazy, we’ll make a dash to a local fast food joint (nooooo!!! bad bad food!). We go to our usual sushi spot on friday date night. It’s good sushi, not overpriced, and you can order a half roll! Yeah, they know us now. LoL

    10. Did you have any posters on your bedroom walls as a kid or when you were a teenager?
    Oh, NKOTB! and Garfield. Yeno, the usual teenybopper stuff from the late 80′s to early 90′s. :)

    2. Are you working on any self-improvement projects? Yes- coping with anxiety. I can only rely on meds so much because they can make me sleepy. Since I’m preparing to take the bar exam, I need other ways to calm down and be able to focus.

    3. When was the last time you wore a fancy formal gown? Barrister’s Ball two winters ago. It’s like law school prom except all classes (not just the graduating one) are invited.

    1. Have you ever had a bunk bed? Oh, yeah… loved it! I was the top bunker, too. :)
    2. Are you working on any self-improvement projects? Ah, the list goes on and on but “working on” might be not be as apt a description as “identified”. HAHA!
    3. When was the last time you wore a fancy formal gown? Well, I’d have to say my wedding in 2001.
    4. How long does it take you to do your eye makeup in the morning? About 1 minute if you don’t count the dry time between mascara, pro prime and eyeliner.
    5. How many different places have you lived? 8, as well!
    6. This week I’d like to [FILL IN THE BLANK]. Go to bed on time. It’s only Tuesday and I’m already exhausted! Oh, that and get my luminaria bags made for this weekend’s Relay for Life. I’m very last-minute.
    7. When was the last time you went to Vegas? Wow, it’s definitely been a while. Maybe 2006 or 2007.
    8. What’s your favorite doughnut? Boston creme, but I’m not much of a doughnut eater.
    9. How often do you prepare meals for yourself? At least twice a day!
    10. Did you have any posters on your bedroom walls as a kid or when you were a teenager? I’m laughing because everyone had that darn cat poster. I had some Garfield as well and KISS. Nothing else really comes to mind right now. I used to cut pics from magazines and make collages, though. Ah, the days of ample free time! :)
