The Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll for November 17, 2014

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.

  1. Have you ever accidentally spilled the beans on a secret you were supposed to keep?
    Naw. If it’s really important, I’m pretty good about keeping my mouth shut.
  2. Would you rather be able to fly, or have telekinesis (the ability to move things with your mind)?
    Oh fly, definitely. That way if my car didn’t have gas, I could still get around and wouldn’t have to rely on public transportation.

    Of course, I’d have to bring a bag of accoutrements with me to fix my hair and makeup once I arrived at my destination, because knowing my luck, I’d always end up with insects up in my grill…

  3. Have you ever had a crush on someone at work?
    Yeah, but you know, that was ages ago. I think it’s kind of inevitable, especially with people you spend a lot of time with, but that old saying is there for a reason: “Don’t sh*t where you eat.”

    At least I think that’s the saying… Whatever it is, it’s true.

  4. On a scale of 1-10, with one being a complete klutz and 10 being a world-class ballerina, how graceful are you?
    Exactly 7.25. No more, no less. 🙂
  5. I’ve always thought I have a good eye for __________.
    Photography composition. I struggle with a lot of the technical aspects of photography, but that’s one part that’s not so hard for me.

Le List

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


1. Have you ever accidentally spilled the beans on a secret you were supposed to keep?
2. Would you rather be able to fly, or have telekinesis?
3. Have you ever had a crush on someone at work?
4. On a scale of 1-10, with one being a complete klutz and 10 being a world-class ballerina, how graceful are you?
5. I’ve always thought I have a good eye for __________.

T-minus four days till Mockingjay: Part 1. Have a great Monday, and may the odds be ever in your favor.

    1. Have you ever accidentally spilled the beans on a secret you were supposed to keep?
    Nope, not for a really important secret. Maybe once or twice for a small one? And maybe a few times for those ‘secrets you didn’t know were supposed to be secret’ (I grew up in a big family and navigating politics of secrets gave me both spying and diplomatic skills)

    2. Would you rather be able to fly, or have telekinesis?
    Telekinesis. I always have dreams about telekinesis!

    3. Have you ever had a crush on someone at work? Yes. But didn’t take it anywhere because I ain’t no fool 🙂

    4. On a scale of 1-10, with one being a complete klutz and 10 being a world-class ballerina, how graceful are you?
    I would say 7.5 – 8. I’m pretty klutzy. My friend wants me to take parkour classes with her so we can both get less klutzy.

    5. I’ve always thought I have a good eye for __________.
    Color, style, design. 🙂 I’d say I just mostly go with my gut and it works out. I also have a good eye for when someone is putting up a front and isn’t being authentic.

  2. 1. Have you ever accidentally spilled the beans on a secret you were supposed to keep? Not really, I am very good at keeping secrets.
    2. Would you rather be able to fly, or have telekinesis? The second, I think. I know where I’d like to be now, heh.
    3. Have you ever had a crush on someone at work? Thankfully, no!
    4. On a scale of 1-10, with one being a complete klutz and 10 being a world-class ballerina, how graceful are you? I’d like to think above 5 😀
    5. I’ve always thought I have a good eye for pulling together an outfit.

  3. Twyla Munden says:

    1. Have you ever accidentally spilled the beans on a secret you were supposed to keep? I’m really good at keeping secrets and making sure surprises are surprises…
    2. Would you rather be able to fly, or have telekinesis? Fly – flights are too expensive from Canada and I love to travel. plus it’d make the morning commute even easier!
    3. Have you ever had a crush on someone at work? Yes and we acted on it. I’m thankful we’re both grown up enuf to know it wouldn’t work out and that we could remain friends & respectful coworkers. And it’s one of those ‘top secret secrets’.
    4. On a scale of 1-10, with one being a complete klutz and 10 being a world-class ballerina, how graceful are you? about an 8 – except every month I get the droppsies which I link to hormone overload. 🙂
    5. I’ve always thought I have a good eye for Macro Photography ~ seeing the beauty in the simplest of things is easy – photographing people is something that evades me..

  4. Estefania says:

    1. Have you ever accidentally spilled the beans on a secret you were supposed to keep?
    Yes. I’m awful at this, especially if it’s a secret that won’t help the person who asked me to keep it. Otherwise, if it’s just personal, then my mouth stays shut. Safety first, though!
    2. Would you rather be able to fly, or have telekinesis?
    I’m going to choose flying because if I had telekinesis I’d never move ever again and I would balloon up to a billion pounds.
    3. Have you ever had a crush on someone at work?
    I’ve mostly worked in all-female environments (go ladies!), but I have had crushes on men who were in academic or social groups with me. One of them managed to convince me he was cool and we’re going on three years! 😛
    4. On a scale of 1-10, with one being a complete klutz and 10 being a world-class ballerina, how graceful are you?
    A four. I will trip over air faster than you can say, “Did she really just hit her head on a door?” Seriously. In college, I once banged my head on a fire extinguisher while trying to get out of my seat. It was in a quiet library and EVERYONE looked around. It was loud, painful, and embarrassing. Who puts a fire extinguisher right aboveto a couch???
    5. I’ve always thought I have a good eye for __________.
    Home decor. I really like my tastes, and I think they’re elegant when it comes to decorating a home and coordinating rooms and whatnot. I also have a killer eye for men’s clothing. My own? Not so much.

  5. Kim says:

    Happy Monday! Did you watch TWD last night? I actually did but I know, no spoilers, just in case. 🙂

    1. Have you ever accidentally spilled the beans on a secret you were supposed to keep? I have. My brain tends to drop out after a couple of drinks. 🙁
    2. Would you rather be able to fly, or have telekinesis? Definitely fly!
    3. Have you ever had a crush on someone at work? Yeah, maybe a little bit. I agree with your sentiment, though. It may be common but it’s best not to act on it.
    4. On a scale of 1-10, with one being a complete klutz and 10 being a world-class ballerina, how graceful are you? Totally 9.5. Only my extreme modesty keeps me from putting 10. 😉 Seriously, I’d say I was very coordinated/athletic, not necessarily graceful.
    5. I’ve always thought I have a good eye for __________. Expensive things. If you threw a bunch of objects in front of me that I knew nothing about, chances are very good that I’d like the most expensive one. Champagne taste on a beer budget and all of that. 🙂

  6. Debra says:

    1. Spill the beans on a secret? No, but sometimes I wished I’d had because some secrets are heavy to carry alone.
    2. Fly, baby fly!!
    3. From a great distance I have harbored The Crush. It’s much better that way.
    4. 8.9
    5. Design. A wonderful art teacher told me when I was 16 that I have a natural eye for design. I believed him. He was in the unforgettable in a good way category. When asked the difference between a vase (long a) and a vase (schwa), he said the vase is under $99, the Vase over $99!

    Happy Monday! Chuggin’ along in 3rd gear today!

  7. MM Curator says:

    1. Have you ever accidentally spilled the beans on a secret you were supposed to keep? Nope. Once, I did tell my husband that his mother was planning a surprise birthday party for him, but that was because he HATES surprises and told me to notify him immediately if anyone was planning something like that for him.
    2. Would you rather be able to fly, or have telekinesis? Telekinesis! Being up in the air would scare me to death, plus I’m lazy…I love the idea of not moving much.
    3. Have you ever had a crush on someone at work? Yeah, during college I was an intern at some firm and liked this guy who was about a decade older…it didn’t end well not because of the work situation but simply because he was a huge jerk.
    4. On a scale of 1-10, with one being a complete klutz and 10 being a world-class ballerina, how graceful are you? On my better days I think I’m around a 2. 😛
    5. I’ve always thought I have a good eye for color. I’m good at knowing which colors go with what and what shades are flattering, whether it’s makeup, clothes, interior design, etc.

    You do have a fantastic eye for photography, Karen! I always try to set up my pictures to come out like yours but they never do!

    Weirdly, I’m not that excited about the new Hunger Games movie. Maybe because Mockingjay was my least favorite book in the trilogy…

    1. Have you ever accidentally spilled the beans on a secret you were supposed to keep? You know, if I have, I don’t remember it. If I did, I think it was probably pretty small.

    2. Would you rather be able to fly, or have telekinesis? Telekinesis! Then again, I’d probably gain a lot of weight from not getting up to get things myself.

    3. Have you ever had a crush on someone at work? Yes. Not anymore because I work at home, alone. But, back in the day, I’d usually have at least one coworker-crush going. Nothing ever came of any of it, though.

    4. On a scale of 1-10, with one being a complete klutz and 10 being a world-class ballerina, how graceful are you? Some days, I’m an 8. Other days, a 4. Today, I feel like a 7. 😉

    5. I’ve always thought I have a good eye for __________. Photographic composition.

  9. 1. Have you ever accidentally spilled the beans on a secret you were supposed to keep? No. Usually it’s on purpose, lol 🙂

    2. Would you rather be able to fly, or have telekinesis? Ooooh tough one! I think I’ll go with flying!

    3. Have you ever had a crush on someone at work? Yes. And that’s all I’m sharing, lol, bad memories.

    4. On a scale of 1-10, with one being a complete klutz and 10 being a world-class ballerina, how graceful are you? Depends on what I’m doing. I can be quite graceful, but also very clumsy. I constantly drop shit and break things.

    5. I’ve always thought I have a good eye for eye make-up (no pun intended).

  10. 1. Have you ever accidentally spilled the beans on a secret you were supposed to keep?
    Yes. But it really was an accident!

    2. Would you rather be able to fly, or have telekinesis?
    Telekinesis, because I get horribly motion sick. But if I could pick anything, it would be shape changing! Like Mystique from the X-Men.

    3. Have you ever had a crush on someone at work?
    Well, yes, a pretty serious one: We married last year and he is the father of the Little Bean. But we decided very early in our relationship that working at the same place wasn’t a great thing, so he quit and found another employer.

    4. On a scale of 1-10, with one being a complete klutz and 10 being a world-class ballerina, how graceful are you?
    8

    5. I’ve always thought I have a good eye for __________.
    Details. I usually get what others are missing. But that leads to being over-organized even in the smallest things, especially at work.

  11. Ruchita says:

    1. Have you ever accidentally spilled the beans on a secret you were supposed to keep?
    Nope. I’m pretty good about keeping secrets.

    2. Would you rather be able to fly, or have telekinesis?
    Telekinesis would be nice for those lazy days I don’t want to leave the couch. 🙂 However, I think being able to fly would be pretty cool!

    3. Have you ever had a crush on someone at work?
    Yep, but it was at a previous job!

    4. On a scale of 1-10, with one being a complete klutz and 10 being a world-class ballerina, how graceful are you?
    Around 6.5 I have some slips here and there, but luckily nothing too bad!

    5. I’ve always thought I have a good eye for __________.
    Organization. I generally like to have things neat and in proper order.

    Happy Monday!

    1. Have you ever accidentally spilled the beans on a secret you were supposed to keep? Yes, I have. Im am still sorry for it.

    3. Have you ever had a crush on someone at work? Yes.
    4. On a scale of 1-10, with one being a complete klutz and 10 being a world-class ballerina, how graceful are you? I am 4. Watch out. Ericca is walking down the street.
    5. I’ve always thought I have a good eye for MAC colors. I think I have memorize some of their most famous colors , I can tell you are wearing MAC whatever regardless of the skintone.

  13. Rachel R. says:

    Hi, Karen!

    1. Have you ever accidentally spilled the beans on a secret you were supposed to keep?

    No, I’m really good at keeping secrets.

    2. Would you rather be able to fly, or have telekinesis?

    Fly. Then I wouldn’t be afraid of heights any more.

    3. Have you ever had a crush on someone at work?

    Not that I remember.

    4. On a scale of 1-10, with one being a complete klutz and 10 being a world-class ballerina, how graceful are you?

    -50 Yes, negative. Like, Jerry Lewis’ Nutty Professor and Chevy Chase’s Gerald Ford had some kind of horrible love child.

    5. I’ve always thought I have a good eye for __________.

    Color and patterns. I can coordinate and contrast like nobody’s business.

  14. Erin says:

    1. Have you ever accidentally spilled the beans on a secret you were supposed to keep?

    I’m sure I have but I can’t recall it so it must not have been that bad.

    2. Would you rather be able to fly, or have telekinesis?

    Flying!

    3. Have you ever had a crush on someone at work?

    Um, sort of. I met my ex-husband at work.

    4. On a scale of 1-10, with one being a complete klutz and 10 being a world-class ballerina, how graceful are you?

    2 probably

    5. I’ve always thought I have a good eye for __________.

    Just about everything. Design and color especially.

  15. Majick says:

    It kills me sometimes but I am very good about keeping secrets. I got really excited once and almost blurted out something to a friend who wasn’t supposed to know yet – I can turn a conversation around faster than a speeding bullet.
    WHich brings us to the next question – FLY definitely. Unless of course the telekenesis was unexhaustable and I could move my mode of transportation too.
    I am the biggest flirt in the world but it’s rare that I get a crush. I’m happily married so it’s kind of easy but I did have a crush once while married. Never acted on it and after a while – EVERYone is a jerk. LMAO So, my advice for an office crush – don’t do it. Eventually it will pass and if it doesn’t then maybe you really were meant to be together. 🙂
    Depending on the day I can be a klutz or totally coordinated. I guess my safe average would be 7 ish.
    I too have a good eye for quality and expense. Could have quoted the champagne taste with a beer pocketbook thing.

  16. Trude says:

    Happy Monday Karen!

    1. Have you ever accidentally spilled the beans on a secret you were supposed to keep? Not anything major, although I put my foot in my mouth all the time. 😉

    2. Would you rather be able to fly, or have telekinesis? I think anyone who lives in or near a major city goes for flying!

    3. Have you ever had a crush on someone at work? Nope. But I’ve made some great friends!

    4. On a scale of 1-10, with one being a complete klutz and 10 being a world-class ballerina, how graceful are you? Probably about a 6. Could be better, could be worse.

    5. I’ve always thought I have a good eye for __________. Color. I think it’s especially come in handy with my photography.

  17. Zhao says:

    1. Have you ever accidentally spilled the beans on a secret you were supposed to keep?
    When I was younger, definitely (but I don’t think I was explicitly told not to tell others those things). As of recently, no.

    2. Would you rather be able to fly, or have telekinesis?
    Telekinesis would be more useful. Flying might bring potential trouble, with trees and birds and telephone wires everywhere and such.

    3. Have you ever had a crush on someone at work?
    If I’ve ever found any of them attractive, working with them (and the chaos that follows) completely kills off any possibility for me.

    4. On a scale of 1-10, with one being a complete klutz and 10 being a world-class ballerina, how graceful are you?
    I think it would depend on different things specifically but I’d like to think 7-8.

    5. I’ve always thought I have a good eye for __________.
    Psychoanalyzing how people became the way they are… lol

  18. auxiliary beauty says:

    Have you ever accidentally spilled the beans on a secret you were supposed to keep?
    I’m afraid so.

    Would you rather be able to fly, or have telekinesis (the ability to move things with your mind)?
    Fly! No question.

    Have you ever had a crush on someone at work?
    I’ve had crushes on fellow grad students and on professors, if that counts.

    On a scale of 1-10, with one being a complete klutz and 10 being a world-class ballerina, how graceful are you?
    About a 3. Which is kind of ironic, considering that I did ballet for ten years…

    I’ve always thought I have a good eye for __________.
    Which colors suit me and other people. Also, fashion as a whole, though I’ve definitely made a few missteps in the past!

  19. Stephanie Smith says:

    1. Have you ever accidentally spilled the beans on a secret you were supposed to keep? Oh yes, which I am not proud of. But the lessons I learned from that experience has made me suuuuuuper tight lipped now.
    2. Would you rather be able to fly, or have telekinesis? Fly, it sounds more fun.
    3. Have you ever had a crush on someone at work? I’ve been married during every job I had, so no. People would end up with crushes on me! Lol!
    4. On a scale of 1-10, with one being a complete klutz and 10 being a world-class ballerina, how graceful are you? I’m a solid 9. Pretty good most of the time, but when I screw up, it’s epic!
    5. I’ve always thought I have a good eye for __________. Picking colors of clothing that really flatter.

  20. Icequeen81 says:

    4. On a scale of 1-10, with one being a complete klutz and 10 being

    1 seriously I am clumsy, once I was with my dear man at a store I accidentally let some stuff fell, he msged his cousin to tell him I was clumsier that him. LOL
    5. I’ve always thought I have a good eye for dogs?

  21. 1. Have you ever accidentally spilled the beans on a secret you were supposed to keep? No. If I’ve been sworn, it’s under lock and key.
    2. Would you rather be able to fly, or have telekinesis? I’d still rather have the ability to breathe underwater. Imagine the amazing free diving you could do! You could become one with a dolphin pod!
    3. Have you ever had a crush on someone at work? Yep. I married him! So that saying isn’t always right! 😉
    4. On a scale of 1-10, with one being a complete klutz and 10 being a world-class ballerina, how graceful are you? I was a gymnast so balance was pretty important. I’m giving myself an 8.
    5. I’ve always thought I have a good eye for __________. arranging things, pictures, little vignettes, etc. I’ve always loved doing interior decor type stuff n thangs.
