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 eight (!) 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.
- Which character would you be from Game of Thrones?
Khaleesi, of course. She’s got the best hair. And dragons. And she was married to Khal Drogo, who was brutally hot. And he wore eye makeup. 🙂
- Would you rather be a sexy mermaid or a sexy sasquatch?
Honestly, since I already feel like a sasquatch 99% of the time because I keep forgetting to shave my legs (and my toes), I’ll go with sexy sasquatch.
- What’s your least favorite yoga pose?
All of them, because I’m so not flexible. But actually when I go to yoga consistently, I really enjoy it. My favorite pose is probably the swan dive, and the ones I do not enjoy are poses involving headstands…because I’m afraid of being upside down.
- Describe your eighth-grade self in five words…
- Are you a twin?
In the scientific sense, no, but in the metaphysical sense, I would call Tabs my twin. My spirit twin.
- When was the last time you wore winged liner?
On Saturday, but I didn’t go balls out with it (I don’t know, can I say balls out??). Rather, I didn’t go all out with it. I’ve been doing this modified sort of kitten liner that doesn’t take much effort at all, which I love. I just use my favorite NARS angled brush (I think it’s the 47) dipped into some black eyeshadow (MAC Carbon), and I just trace the outer half of my lash line, then do a quick flick of the wing. Then I kind of buff out the top of the line to make it a little fuzzy, so it’s not super crisp. Then, if I still have time, I go over it slightly with a gel liner (MAC Blacktrack). Seriously, it’s so easy.
Your turn. 🙂 Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ’em!

6. When was the last time you wore winged liner?
These shoes were made for walkin’, and that’s just what they’ll do! That pair at the top? My friend Marisol got me them for my birthday, and…THEY HAVE FLAMINGOS. I love them.
I’ll be breaking them in on many walks this week, which are always super helpful for me. It seems so basic, right? Going for a walk? But if I’m ever stuck on a problem, or if I start to feel anxious or antsy, I’ll stick Connor in her baby carrier and go for a quick walk — get some fresh air, say hi to my neighbors, pet a neighbor’s dog or a cat — and afterward everything seems much better.
Happy Monday, my friend. 🙂 You should get yourself some new shoes this week and go for a walk.
