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.
- I’d characterize my style as ________.
Hawaii surfer chic meets quirky cat lady with Chanel and Kate Spade taste on a Pasta Pomodoro budget.
- When I see someone wearing socks with sandals, my first thought is _______.
OH HELL TO THE NO.
But I’d do it too if I were cold enough and had no other options for toe warmth…or if the socks were toe socks. For some reason, I feel like toe socks with sandals are slightly more stylish.
Sock stipulations: I haz them!
- Off-duty days call for __________.
Scrunchies, clothes with copious amounts of Spandex, my couch, a Netflix marathon (right now I’m watching Gilmore Girls), a stack of books and magazines. delicious snack foods (both healthy and, um, not so healthy) prepared by someone other than myself, and bras that don’t have under wires.
- Everything changed for me when ______.
I realized that I had a ride-or-die partner by my side. Someone who was truly there for me. For most of my dating life, even when I was in committed relationships, I’d always felt like, if the sh*t ever hit the fan, ultimately, I’d have to handle everything on my own, and I was OK with that.
But when I met El Hub, who was El Boyfriend for five years before we got married, I no longer felt like I had to carry the weight of everything on my shoulders all the time.
- The last event or thing that inspired me was ______.
The Mary Blair exhibit at the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco’s Presidio.
Your turn. 🙂 Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ’em!
1. I’d characterize my style as ________.

Good morning, my friend!
You WILL have a happy Monday today. It’s 100% guaranteed.
In other news, I keep trying to not be so obsessed with Karl Lagerfeld, but it’s really freaking hard. I feel like he gets me, man.
Case in point, your Karl quote for the week…
“I love to be creative all the time… If not, I would be bored and boredom is a crime.”
— Karl Lagerfeld
If Karl ever asked me to cat sit for him, I would not say no.
Um…please don’t tell Tabs that. 🙂
