The Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll for May 12, 2014

The Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll for May 12, 2014

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 seven years. I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.

  1. Did you drink coffee in high school?
    Nope, I did not, but coffee drinking wasn’t a thing when I was in high school in the ’90s (Starbucks — what’s that?). I remember my friend Jen having coffee in the morning once and thinking it was really exotic.
  2. Stiletto nails

  3. Stiletto nails: yes or no?
    I think they can look really bad-@ss and rockstar on some people, but for me, personally, I can’t do them because I type all day, and there’s just no freaking way.
  4. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school?
    I used to when I went to U.C. Davis. It was a big biking town. My apartment was about a 20-minute bike ride from campus.
  5. What’s the funniest thing your pet does?
    Every night just before I feed Tabs gravy he does this thing that I call “sexy time,” where he sprawls out on his back and flashes his tum, kind of like a centerfold kitty posing on the living room floor, as if to say, “Yes, I know. I’m so sexy that you simply cannot wait to feed me.”
  6. Who was the last person you took a selfie with?
    My mom yesterday. :) I gave her a makeup lesson at home and touched up her lips.

Le List

Your turn. :) Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ‘em!


1. Did you drink coffee in high school?
2. Stiletto nails: yes or no?
3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school?
4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does?
5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with?

Sometimes, you just gotta get sh*t done, ya know?

It’s good to always want to do your best, but striving for perfection can be exhausting and flat-out paralyzing. I feel paralyzed when I known that something isn’t the best I can do — like a picture, a project, or an eye look or something — but sometimes you just have to do your best with the time and resources you have.

There’s a phrase: “Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good.” I’m going to try to keep that in mind this week.

Have a great week, babe. Your nephew says “mrow.” :)

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school? No! That was something only grown ups did! Like you said, no Starbucks in the early 90′s. Plus I was a teacher aide for a teacher that had massive coffee breath and would lean down and talk to me. It was gross. Lol!
    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no? Not on me! On the right person, yes, but I am not that person.
    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school? No, I always lived too far away from work and school, but I do walk with my kids to school now, it’s a one mile walk. It’s my favorite time of day!
    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does? We have a lot of pets, so I’ll choose my ginormous fish. He’s an Oscar fish, and I want to train him to let me pet him. He’s not interested at all in being petted, so when I feed him, he’ll eat his food super fast and dive to the bottom of his tank so I don’t pet him. I have had to get really fast!
    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with? My cat, I think! I’ve recently gotten into selfies, they’re more fun than I used to think they were!

  2. Eli says:

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school? – Yep!
    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no? – Totally no, I find them kind of revolting :(
    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school? – I can’t ride a bike, ha :D
    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does? – He thinks he’s Spiderman and jumps really high, trying to “stick” to the walls :D
    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with? – One of my best friends!

  3. Ruchita says:

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school?
    Nope. I was in high school in the 90s also, so fancy, coffee drinks really weren’t a think back then. However, I remember having “coffee” in India, but it was mostly sugar, milk and the tiniest bit of actual coffe. :-)

    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no?
    A nay for me. It would be too difficult to type with those.

    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school?
    Nope. I never lived close enough to bike around.

    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does?
    Oh boy – it’s hard to narrow down!

    - When I let Mingy outside when I get home from work, he immediately drops to the ground and rolls around. Sometimes he’ll flop back and forth like a fish out of water.
    - Ella loves shoes, the stinkier the better. Sometimes I’ll catch her hugging my shoes and rubbing her face all over them. She’s in heaven!
    - When I’m playing with Nina using a wand with a feather at the end, she likes to “catch” the prey in he mouth. Then she’ll walk off with to some corner of the house. It always makes me laugh seeing her drag this toy around that’s bigger than she is!

    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with?
    Does a cat count as a person? :-) I was trying to get a picture of me and Nina, but it didn’t come out. She moves around too much!

    Happy Monday!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Ruchita,

      Cat selfies totally count. Maybe try bribing Nina with some treats? That always works for Tabs when he’s not in the mood to strike a pose.

      And awwww! I enjoyed hearing about their funny traits. Like Ella, Tabs is enamored with stinky shoes and socks. I’ll often find him snuggling with El Hub’s workout socks, ewww.

  4. Let says:

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school? No. I was super weak to caffeine in high school– I could take a sip and then got headaches the whole day. Going to Seattle for college totally helps strengthen my caffeine tolerance LOL.
    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no? No.
    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school? … I can’t even ride a bike. I prefer walking.
    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does? I don’t have any pets.
    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with? One of my closest friends a couple of weeks ago.

    • Karen says:

      LOL, Let! I can imagine Seattle being good training ground for coffee drinking. How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun? I puttered around the house on Saturday (did some cleaning, laundry, ran) and then went to the mall to window shop. On Sunday I drove out to my parents’ house to hang out with them for Mother’s Day.

  5. Alice Ann says:

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school? Oh, yeah. I’ve loved coffee for a long, long time.
    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no? Theoretically, yes but functionally, no.
    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school? I learned to ride a bike as an adult, which I think makes me a bit more fearful than people who’ve been riding their whole lives, but I really enjoy it. When I lived in SF and lived a few (flat) miles from work, I would ride my bike often. Now that I live in Oakland, it’s just much faster to drive to work in SF. I like the idea of riding my bike to school, but biking in downtown Oakland can be really intimidating because of the car traffic, so I either drive or take BART.
    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does? The dog does a ‘come on’ kind of head nod at me when I’m eating. One of the cats does a hilarious, very human sounding ‘talking’, often in the middle of the night, and often right before he coughs up a hairball. The other cat likes to climb on my chest in the morning, turn around, and fan me in the face with her tail until I get up and feed the all.
    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with? My dog.

  6. Shannon says:

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school?
    Fo sho! Although it was usually heavily doctored with cream and sugar, and/or condumed in Frappuccino form :) Oh, high school.
    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no?
    Mmmm, not for me, thanks. I feel like they look a little to severe (and highly impractical, TBH). I like to keep my nails pretty short these days!
    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school?
    I used to when we lived in Missoula, MT. There are bikes everywhere there! I’d love to bike to work in NYC, but I don’t really have a safe place to keep my bike (sigh), so it’s still living in a garage way upstate, at my in-laws’ place.
    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does?
    gonna go with my parents’ pet on this one – their dog will just lay down and stretch herself out so that her front legs are straight out in front of her and her back legs go straight out in back of her. She wiggles a little bit on her belly to get into position. SO funny. :)
    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with?
    oh gosh… It’s been a while! I think it was with the mother of one of my good friends, who was visiting NYC for a short time. That was the same day I busted the screen on my phone, rendering the self-facing camera kind of useless :(

  7. Leah says:

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school?
    Nope not until my 20s when I worked in software. Now Keurig during the week and French Press on weekends.

    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no? Nope. I volunteer at a farm and also travel a lot for my day job. I’m all about a good pedicure though.

    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school? I wish. Although 12,000 people in Boston bike to work I work in the suburbs so I would not make it alive. :(

    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does? Maximus the cat plays fetch!

    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with? My coworker Stephanie at a colleague’s retirement lunch (we got through it together we can’t stand the person who retired). :)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Leah,

      I may be the last person to get on the Keurig train. Still haven’t tried it yet! Is it life-changing? Do I need to get on board?

  8. Trude says:

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school? Not really, I’m not the biggest fan of basic coffee flavor. Remember Deidrichs? I used to get their blended something or other that used real ice cream. These days I still use a ton of flavored cream in my daily cup. :)

    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no? Not for me. I’m with you – I type too much! I keep them shorty short short.

    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school? I used to, but here in spread-out SoCal it’s not really feasible. Plus I usually do my errands during the week after work.

    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does? When I had a dog (he’s in a better place now), the way he would tuck himself in under his blankie was hilarious.

    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with? Looks like it was with the BF for our anniversary. :) http://instagram.com/p/nFCOsxzffR/

    Did you drink coffee in high school?
    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no? NO, not my thing
    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school? nope
    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does? well they do funny things all the time , they like to nag and the sound of that is funny , The rooster and also one of the pups do that, nag.They are kind of spoiled
    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with?don’t take selfies

  10. Sandra G says:

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school?
    I wasn’t an avid coffee drinker in high school. In my school career (before college) every now and then my mom would make me coffee on really cold mornings. But it wasn’t an obsession like it is now, with all the weird teens thinking they’re fantastically cool or whatever.
    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no?
    No… People can have them if they want but I just don’t like looking at them. I was getting my hair cut yesterday and my hairdresser had these talons – I mean, stiletto nails – and scratched me in the face. Twice.
    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school?
    I don’t own a bike. I either take the train or walk to work and school. Train ride is only about 10 minutes from my campus (roughly 3 stops) or if I wait one more stop after that, I walk about 10-15 minutes from that platform to work. If I’m feeling bold, I walk from school/work (which is in downtown where some not so awesome people wander about) to my house.
    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does?
    We have a cat we call Kitty and he does “sexy time” too. But we have a black cat (adopted stray who still has people issues) named Fingers. She likes to sit down. And look at us. And squint her eyes. And stick her tongue out.
    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with?
    My last selfie was in my first year of college, with my friend KeAndre. We were waiting at the bus stop that day. We’re both going to be juniors in the fall and we’re also going to be roomates (along with another one of our friends from high school, Nancy).

  11. Dymond says:

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school? Yes, addicted.

    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no?

    Yes!! BUT with a curve I call it because I type all day and the pointy pointy ones were just too pointy for me I have what I like to call “almond” shaped nails I love them and get a ton of compliments on them all the time. I don’t think I’ll go back to square for awhile.

    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school?
    I wish I did or could but honestly I’m just not that cool or coordinated for all that especially at 6am!

    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does?
    My pet is the best play catch dog ever he will bring you the toy a 1000 times over and over and over u throw and he’s right back with the toy…he never gets tired EVER! It’s super cute and kids love it!

    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with?
    My CELF lol :) celfie/selfie

    • Karen says:

      Hi Dymond!

      I know what you mean about the “almond” shaped nails. I think they look super cool! I just wish I could type with them.

      What kind of dog do you have?

  12. Meg says:

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school? I didn’t like it much – only the froofy kind full of syrup and cream and sugar. And even then it wasn’t until the last year or two. College is when I was like “COFFEE. COFFEE NOW.”

    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no? No. They look like weapons and I’m sure I would hurt myself.

    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school? Wish I could, but I was a music major and lived off campus. So I had a backpack, music bag, instrument, purse, lunch, water bottle…I would have needed to put a trailer on my bike:)

    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does? Everything! My little girl puppy needs to cuddle every night, and sometimes after she falls asleep, she wakes up and has to kiss us before she’ll go back to sleep, like she forgot to say goodnight:) My little boy puppy needs to stop and smell all the flowers while we’re on a walk.

    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with? Um…probably a friend…sometime last summer…idk…

  13. Natalie says:

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school?
    Yup, I drank coffee from quite an early age because my parents did. It wasn’t coffee like Starbucks or similar, that simply didn’t exist in the UK! Just plain old instant.
    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no?
    On me, hell no! But I’m cool with other people rocking the look.
    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school?
    I don’t own a bike sadly :( I want one, but they are really expensive, and there is no space in the bike store in our building, or at work. Bikes get stolen all the time here, so I wouldn’t want to leave it out. It is a shame, as my office is a 15 minute cycle from my apartment.
    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does?
    The smallest cat likes to drink from the bathroom tap. Nowhere else. If she hasn’t got water from the bathroom tap she miaows and whines, which is hilarious!
    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with?
    The boyfriend, in Times Square :)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Natalie,

      That’s so cute that your small kitty will only drink from the tap. Is she a water kitty? Like, is she cool with taking a bath?

  14. Oh HAI!! Loved your pic with your mom, and your Gaga convo!
    1. Did you drink coffee in high school? Nope. You were considered the height of cool if you went to Waffle House or IHOP and had breakfast before school, but coffee didn’t really factor in. I don’t think I even started drinking it until my first real FT job.
    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no? No. I fear accidental self-injury.
    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school? No. Atlanta’s not exactly laid out for biking/strolling. It’s laid out for gridlock, LOL!
    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does? Don’t have a fur baby just yet…but I will!
    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with? My mom!
    Thanks for the perfection quote. I’m the same way. If something isn’t astronomically perfect, I do tend to let it bog me down. That quote is a great tip to keep in mind!
    Love ya like hot waffles with maple syrup,

  15. Elena says:

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school? Yes! Just drip coffee. Starbucks is way too expensive of a habit!

    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no? No. Just no. If they aren’t too over the top some people can pull them off but they are impractical to me. I work with my hands and play rough with my big dog….I would lose nails like that left and right!

    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school? No.

    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does? He cries when we get home and greets us with his favorite stuffed animals (a buffalo or his bear usually). He snuggles with them too!

    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with? I really don’t do selfies. Probably my bf when we were on vacation in San Diego!

  16. Chris25 says:

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school?: Yes, when my father wasn’t looking. It was “illegal” in our home, haha.

    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no?: I have to say no. They’re cool to look at, but I would never get anything done if I wore them.

    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school?: I never really got the hang of bike riding, tbh.

    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does?: The cats do cat things, but one thing Rock n Roll does is she gangs up on Jazz especially rough when I’m not around. When I walk back into the room, she suddenly stops and Jazz is whimpering. I know she knows what she’s doing!

    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with? My friend Jessica.

  17. Dominique says:

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school? Nope coffee makes me feel dizzy for some reason

    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no? OMG non ! I mean no :)

    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school? Euh no

    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does? She doesn’t want to be seen when she goes to the bathroom lol :)

    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with? myself lol !

    • Karen says:

      LOL, Dominique. I actually understood your French reply to question no. 2.

      How are you liking the summer collections, by the way?! Anything catch your eye?

  18. I love Monday polls!

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school? Yeah, started drinking coffee when I was 16 or something I think.

    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no? No. Definitely no.

    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school? Yes, I went by bike whenever it didn’t rain when I was in high school and in college.

    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does? I don’t have a pet anymore :-( But I always thought it was funny how she sat like a human, on her but :-) (I had a lab)

  19. Kylie says:

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school?
    Nope, and I don’t drink it now. Never liked the taste!

    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no?
    No. Never. On no one. I am not a trendy nails person. I think they look hag.

    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school?
    Nope. I CAN ride a bike but don’t enjoy it. Also, live 25 miles away from work, so….no.

    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does?
    No pets now, unfortunately. I had a dog growing up who loved to be pet. If you stopped petting her, she’d cock her ear at you (and she was a basset, so those were some gigantic ears!) and then put her head under your hand so you’d pet her again.

    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with?
    Good question! According to my phone, my friend Jess!

  20. Petra says:

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school? Occationally, but was generally a tea drinker
    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no? Not for me.
    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school? To college I did, to many books to carry
    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does? Beauty is no longer with me but she had this thing where she would cram her 85 Lbs in under my pin back chair I had at my desk when I was working. She would use the crossbar as a pillow and lean her nose against my calf.
    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with? Not really in the selfie taking business. But I took one at a Cold rolled steel factory last week. I had to imortalize the look: protective headgear and huge yellow and orange vest.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Petra,

      Sorry to hear about your pet. I’m assuming she was a dog at 85 lbs? What breed was she? My family and I lost our love, Shauna, last year, and I still miss her every time I visit my parent’s home.

  21. Rachel P. says:

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school? – Only sometimes, and only it it was highly sweetened! Now I drink it on the reg (still a little sweetened of course).
    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no? – I won’t knock ‘em til I try ‘em, but mostly no. I prefer a natural rounded or squared-off tip!
    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school? – Yes, when the weather is nice! I had too much to carry in high school to bother with it then, but sometimes in college I would, and I will bike to work now in summer (as long as it’s not crazy hot or crazy cold).
    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does? – We have a standard poodle puppy (who is entering adulthood but still thinks he’s a puppy). He is a crazy leaper and jump so high/across such great expanses that sometimes I think he knows how to levitate and is fooling us. There have been times I let him in and out of the house and I don’t even see his paws meet the ground, just an airborne mass of curly black fur. It’s so crazy it makes me laugh every time.
    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with? – My coworker Kelly! We had a party last night and obviously needed to take a selfie! :P

    Happy Monday, Karen. I am soooo glad the workday is over (for me, anyway). Onto more exciting and glamorous things!

  22. Rebecca R. says:

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school? Nope. I graduated in ’91 so, like with you, the whole coffee craze wasn’t in full swing yet.

    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no? They are not my favorite. They look ok on some people but for the most part I don’t like them very much.

    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school? I never have!

    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does? My newest cat loooovvveeesss to drink out of the sink. She’ll jump onto the countertop and meow and give super cute looks until someone turns on the water for her.

    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with? My hubby when we were waiting in line at VooDoo Doughnut.

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school?
    Only when I could get my hands on a frappuccino
    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no?
    Meh… I think only some people can pull that look off.
    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school?
    No.
    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does?
    All the dirty looks I get from my cats. lol I think its funny.
    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with?
    I believe it was my sister on Easter.

  24. Lynn says:

    The funniest thing my cat does is dip her paw in my milk glass about a thousand times trying to drink 1/8 of a teaspoon that’s left in there. She hardly gets any on her paw but she just keeps going. I have to watch out or she’ll start before I even finish the glass then I have to throw it out and start all over!

  25. Katherine M says:

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school?
    ~I can’t say I did, other than family gatherings. In Italian and Baltimore Irish/German families, coffee with all the fixins’ is the norm for dessert. I actually couldn’t drink it without creamer and sugar for a long time. Now my favorite way to have it is flavored or very strong from Baltimore Coffee here in Frederick (I bought ground coffee from them) with vanilla almond milk and a little bit of sugar or honey to sweeten.

    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no?
    ~Nope. Cool on some people, cheesy on others.

    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school?
    ~If by bike you mean motorcycle…:) Haven’t made that trip yet. Motorcycles save a lot on gas, but still being a new rider, I haven’t made any trips yet where I’m in something of a time crunch, i.e. work. I sometimes will ride my bicycle on the C&O Canal around here, but it’s too dangerous to ride on the roads. Lots of crazy drivers.

    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does?
    ~The horses used do funny things all the time. One knew how to kiss and hug on command, his name was Sherlock.

    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with?
    ~Hubby when we were out on a ride together last year.

  26. Sylirael says:

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school? I don’t drink coffee now, LOL! The only time I ever drink coffee is if I’m in Rome (or Naples).
    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no? Absolutely not! I would totally poke myself in the eye with them or something :-P
    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school? I don’t have a bike, sadly – and my commute at the moment is 5-10 minutes by foot! Before that it was 1 hour or more by bus…
    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does? I don’t have a pet, but when the wizard (my husband) sits on the floor to do something, he sits sort of folded up so that he can rest his chin on his knees the whole time (he’s tall with long legs). It looks so funny!
    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with? I don’t think I’ve ever taken a selfie at all in the textbook sense. The last time I took a photo of myself was for a recent eye makeup look I did…but I’m not sure if that’s really a selfie!

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school?
    My mom made me coffee when I was in high school, if you could call it that. It was instant and 2/3 of the cup was whole milk.
    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no?
    In the 80′s I had some pointy nails, but not to the extreme of that picture.
    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school?
    No, way too far.
    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does
    No pets at the moment!
    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with?
    My 18 year old son!

    Loved the pic of you and your mom Karen!

    4.What’s the funniest thing your pet does? Marbles paws at the cat in the mirror. It’s hilarious! She will paw at that beast for minutes on end – stands up on her hind legs, puts her front paws on the mirror and just goes to town – one paw after the other, faster and faster – usually at around 3:00 a.m. It’s the silliest thing, but she’s done it since she was a kitten. That and our nightly ritual of her kneading on me. She crawls up over my shoulder, wraps her paws around my neck, sometimes reaching down to the pillow or my arm and kneads like a little kitten, purring up a storm. I often end up with a paw in my mouth. It’s so sweet. I love it!

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school?
    No.

    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no?
    No. I actually never do my nails. Not worth it because I do rough stuff with my hands.

    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school?
    Yes! Pretty much every work day, rain or snow, even if I’m exhausted. It can be trying, but I’m lucky to be by a descent bike trail. Was this question made for me?

    When my beauty routine and bike commute come into conflict, I try to make it work, but the bike commute wins over the beauty routine. If anyone else does a lot of sweating with some make-up — waterproof eyeliners, brows, budge-resistant lips and comfortable (cheap!) sunscreen for sensitive skin — I’m all ears to hear what’s the best of the best. :)

    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does?
    I don’t have a pet. But sometimes I like to jump out from under the table to scare hubby. O_o … Maybe that’s just odd.

    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with?
    Hubby.

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school? Not at all, but I had a somewhat intense addiction to Haagen-Dazs coffee chip ice cream. Does that count?
    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no? No typing, no wiping? What if I decide to wear contacts that day? Hell no!
    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school? No. Seems nice in theory, but in practice I would only ride someplace where I could shower and change clothes on arrival. :-)
    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does? Sadly I’m petless at the moment. A friend’s cat used to insist on sprawling on my gigantic, imitation-leather hobo bag whenever I came over, if he wasn’t already nose-down in my shoes. Pretty much every time I visited this girl, I’d plop down on the couch, shuck my shoes and plunk my purse on the floor so her cat could decide which item he wanted to “borrow.” We used to joke that had he been human, he would’ve been a real pervert. As a feline, though, he was adorable.
    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with? Just me, with my mom’s quilt in the background.

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school? Not really, I’ve been a tea person for most of my life.
    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no? For me, noooooo. First of all, I would look weird because I feel like my hands are too small for that kind of thing, or something. Second, I work with kids all day, so that seems like a bad idea.
    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school? I haven’t ridden a bike in years and years. I wonder if I still can!
    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does? Oh, Enzo. He has a lot of quirks. When I give him a crunchy milk bone (instead of a chewy milk bone, which is his favorite), he carries it around the house for at least 3-4 days before he’ll eat it. He leaves it in different places, moves it from room to room, naps with it, etc.

  32. Emily B says:

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school? I had starbucks maybe once or twice but didn’t really drink coffee very often if I did have any.

    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no? I think every girl has a preference for their nails but I think Stiletto nails aren’t for me.

    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school? When it was nice out in the late fall and spring I would ride my back to school or walk since I was a few blocks away.

    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does? I have a male Cockatiel and if I give him a potato chip once in a while he’ll play fetch with me, he’ll drop it and I’ll pick it up so he can have it again.

    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with? My mom, we took one on her smartphone for her birthday last Friday before Mother’s Day.

  33. Emmy says:

    1. Did you drink coffee in high school? Not really. Caffeine gives me migraines (strange I know since for most people it gets rid of them), so I stayed away for the most part. I’d have a decaf frap or some other fancy drink occasionally when all the cool kids were hanging out at a coffee shop.
    2. Stiletto nails: yes or no? No. I like to keep things more simple.
    3. Do you ever ride your bike to work or school? Sadly, I have always lived way too far away to do that.
    4. What’s the funniest thing your pet does? He is hilarious. My dog stretches out like a cat and cleans himself like one too. He also will find the most uncomfortable thing (like a book or computer) and sleep on that.
    5. Who was the last person you took a selfie with? My boy but of course.
