You might be wondering, “So what in tarnation is this Monday Poll thing anyway!?”
Well, it isn’t exactly a poll. It’s more of a constantly evolving (devolving?), somewhat random list of questions I’ve been putting out to readers every Monday morning for the past seven years. (It’s like a kickstart for your brain.) I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
- What’s one thing you feel like you’re *always* doing?
Oh, that’s easy. Laundry. Doesn’t matter if I just washed and put away a big pile of clothes/towels/linens/whatever, there’s always something more to wash. It never ends!
Same goes for makeup brushes. I’m always and forever washing makeup brushes…
- Something you wish you’d studied in school?
The arts of bargaining and negotiation, although right now I’m not even sure there were classes for those things…but they’re such handy skills to have for work and regular everyday life.
I never thought about bargaining for anything as a teenager and a kid because I was either too shy or afraid of rocking the boat, but I’m trying to get better at it.
Oh, did I tell you that I set up a bargaining challenge for myself? I’ve been saving money to get some new furniture, and when the time comes, I’m going to force myself to attempt to negotiate the price down.
I figure it’s the best way to learn how to do it (and to not be afraid to walk away if I have to).
- Do you ever bring your pet to work?
Every. Single. Day. 🙂 Because while working from home has its own set of challenges (feeling cut off from the world, having issues with work/home life boundaries, not having work buddies to vent to when you’re feeling stressed…), being away from your crabby plus-size tabby cat isn’t one of them.
- Are you more or a girly girl or a tom boy?
Now, a girly girl, but I was more of a tom boy when I was a teen and tween.
- How many handbags do you have, and of those, how many do you regularly use?
Well, crap. Let me think about that… I think there are about 15 in my closet right now? But I really only use two of them. One’s a brown Michael Kors tote, and the other is a red Kate Spade cross-body.
I think this is the universe’s way of letting me know that the last thing I need is another handbag, LOL!
Your turn. 🙂 Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ’em!
1. What’s one thing you feel like you’re *always* doing?
2. Something you wish you studied in school?
3. Do you ever bring your pet to work?

Hiya, sweet pea. Greetings to you on this lovely, albeit rainy, Monday. You know what’s one of my favorite things to have for breakfast in the fall? A bowl of sliced persimmons (but they have to be cold) and a cup of coffee.
On that note, that persimmon up there at the top of this post is now in my tummy.
I hope your belly is full this morning and your heart is light. 🙂
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
