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.
- My spirit animal is ______.
A tiger! 🐯
Because deep down inside I’m really just a big jungle cat who loves the water.
Plus, the stripes, and you know how those never go out of style.
- Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight?
Yes, and it was hella stressful, but at least it was on the way back home, and not on my way to the destination.
It happened a few years ago on a quick connecting flight from Italy to Germany. It was one of those tight turnarounds where you have to run through the airport terminal to catch the connecting flight, and I guess my checked bag (which had all of my souvenirs in it, like boxes of Italian chocolate , which I really, REALLY wanted to eat, LOL!) got left behind.
I learned a valuable lesson though. Ever since then I do whatever it takes to avoid from having to check in my bags, especially bags containing makeup and chocolate.
Thankfully, the bag showed up at my doorstep in Novato about a week later (so I got my chocolate, yay!).
- Does your family have any summer traditions?
No big ones, really, but El Hub and I do like to spend a weekend in Lake Tahoe. We like to kayak on the lake and hike and go out to dinner, but when we were planning to go a few weeks ago, we had to cancel at the last minute because it was straight-up raining up there, which is kind of weird for July.
I’m hoping we can still make it out there before it gets chilly, maybe next month or early September.
- Bronzer makes me feel ______.
And less like a member of the Army of the Undead.
- Lattes: with or without foam?
The foam does absolutely nothing for me. I’d rather have the foam space dedicated to filling up the cup with more latte.
Your turn. 🙂 Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ’em!
1. My spirit animal is ______.
2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight?
3. Does your family have any summer traditions?
4. Bronzer makes me feel ______.
5. Lattes: with or without foam?
Hello, sweet pea!
I’m back and oh, so relaxed after spending the weekend with my high school pals Jen and Cindy. It was a belated birthday sleepover involving a whole lotta nothing and the hotel pool.
It’s amazing what a little lounging around can do for your soul. I feel like a reenergized Energizer Bunny Karen.
I hope you were able to get in some relaxing yourself last weekend. How are you doing today? How’s your morning been so far?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
