Flamingos are fabulous!

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.

  1. 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. 🙂
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Describe your eighth-grade self in five words…
    • Awkward
    • Frizzy
    • Shy
    • Clueless
    • Studious
  5. Are you a twin?
    In the scientific sense, no, but in the metaphysical sense, I would call Tabs my twin. My spirit twin.
  6. 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.

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.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    2. Would you rather be a sexy mermaid or a sexy sasquatch?
    Hmm… can I be a sexy unicorn instead?

    3. What’s your least favorite yoga pose?
    Chair pose. Or actually, the twist that you do from chair pose (prayer twist I think?)! Anything that requires me to keep my legs bent for a long period of time. Ouch!

    Shy, braces, curious, confused,anxious.

    Hope you had a great birthday week, Karen! It’s still gray every single morning here, I’m hoping the clouds will break and we’ll have some sun in the PM. Waking up to gloomy gray skies every day is getting seriously depressing!

  6. kellly says:

    1. Character from GOT: Arya. I don’t watch the show, but I’m reading the series and (so far, book 3) she kicks some serious ass. Brienne is pretty cool, too.
    2. Mermaid, definitely. And I’d have the long different color mermaid hair.
    3. The plow. I have a bad lower back and it always helps.
    4. 8th grade: very shy (that’s 2), nerdy, smart, introverted
    5. No
    6. Winged liner – not for the past decade at least. It’s not a good look for me.

  7. kellly says:

    oops, LEAST favorite yoga pose – anything requiring standing on my head. I also have a bad neck so I can’t do any of that.

  8. Ericca Brock says:

    1. Which character would you be from Game of Thrones? Aryn
    2. Would you rather be a sexy mermaid or a sexy sasquatch? Sexy mermaid, little mermaid was my movie as a kid.
    3. What’s your least favorite yoga pose? none.
    4. Describe your eighth-grade self in five words…i like all black everything
    5. Are you a twin? no
    6. When was the last time you wore winged liner? attempted like 6 months ago

  9. Stephanie Smith says:

    1. Which character would you be from Game of Thrones? I don’t watch GoT, so none of them. It’s just not for me.
    2. Would you rather be a sexy mermaid or a sexy sasquatch? Mermaid, I like the water.
    3. What’s your least favorite yoga pose? Chair pose, that deep squat and reaching up body position is difficult for me.
    4. Describe your eighth-grade self in five words…. Shy. Skinny. Smart. Band-geek. Goofy.
    5. Are you a twin? YES! Fraternal, I have a twin brother. And we’re Geminis. When I was a kid, I didn’t understand how non-twins could be Geminis.
    6. When was the last time you wore winged liner? I’ve never worn it. Isn’t that awful? Liquid liner intimidates the bejeezus out of me, and I rub my eyes too much to use pencil. Don’t want it to be smeary.

  10. Mickey says:

    How I’d describe myself in the 8th grade using 5 words:
    1. Nerdy
    2. Academically competitive
    3. Performance driven
    4. Acne crazy
    5. Rebellious

    I was a teenager who definitely wanted to fit in but felt like she can’t. Thank goodness those days are over!!! This is perhaps one reason I’m glad to be older. 😉

  11. 1. Which character would you be from Game of Thrones?
    If I could choose, Khaleesi. If it goes by resemblance, Sansa.

    2. Would you rather be a sexy mermaid or a sexy sasquatch?
    I don’t even know what a sasquatch is, so I´ll go with mermaid.

    3. What’s your least favorite yoga pose?
    The crow.

    4. Describe your eighth-grade self in five words…
    Awkward (aren´t they all), nerdy, acneic, tall, vulnerable

    5. Are you a twin?
    No.

    6. When was the last time you wore winged liner?
    Today. Rarely a day without it.

    And yes, walking is so good, for you and the kids. It helps with the feeling of being stuck at home.

  12. Rachel R. says:

    1. Which character would you be from Game of Thrones? Tyrion: Smart, decent, judged by my size, and most of my family are terrible people who hate me.

    2. Would you rather be a sexy mermaid or a sexy sasquatch? Sexy mermaid, for sure. I want that glorious mermaid hair.

    3. What’s your least favorite yoga pose? I’ve never done yoga.

    4. Describe your eighth-grade self in five words… Out-of-place, smart, mature, introverted, anxious.

    5. Are you a twin? no

    6. When was the last time you wore winged liner? About a week ago

  13. Amy says:

    1. Which character would you be from Game of Thrones?
    I’ve never watched

    2. Would you rather be a sexy mermaid or a sexy sasquatch?
    The mermaid look is pretty hard to beat. But I like being in the woods and mountains way more than the ocean, so as long as I’m going to be attractive, I’ll say Sasquatch!

    3. What’s your least favorite yoga pose?
    Don’t know any, never been attracted to yoga! 🙂 I love to stretch and move in other ways

    4. Describe your eighth-grade self in five words…
    Duplicitous, frustrated, bored, creative, energetic

    5. Are you a twin?
    Yep. Identical. But in the inside, we are waaay different people!

    6. When was the last time you wore winged liner?
    About six months ago. I do eyeliner a lot more often, just not the winged part!

  14. Lisa says:

    LOL. This makes me think of Parma, Ohio, a place known for its abnormal love of the pink lawn flamingo. If you aren’t familiar with it, look it up. I’m not joking. 😂 And this isn’t written in a derogatory manner either. It’s a suburb of Cleveland, my hometown, and I love it. They just crack me up 😊

  15. kwmechelle says:

    1. Which character would you be from Game of Thrones? Oh boy. I’ve never seen GOT. *ducks under a chair in case hair dryers & eyeshadow compacts start flying* Yeah, it’s just not my thing. Ask me my fave character from Downton Abbey, and I could talk your ear off 🙂

    2. Would you rather be a sexy mermaid or a sexy Sasquatch? Bring on the sexy mermaid. I live in the resort city, where the mermaid is the city’s symbol. I think it’s cheesy but if I had to choose between the two, I’d pick a mermaid. Might as well fit in.

    3. What’s your least favorite yoga pose? I love them all. Yoga freak here. Haven’t done it in soooooo long. Totally miss it. Camel pose hurts like a son of a gun. But when I get it right, I walk away with a new back 🙂

    4. Describe your eighth-grade self in five words…
    Studious, silly, shy at times, BIG HAIR ALL THE TIME, smart

    5. Are you a twin? Nope, but my doppelgänger, who’s also my sister from another mister, and I could pass for fraternal twins. The resemblance & personality traits are uncanny.

    6. When was the last time you wore winged liner? Too long. Been so busy the past two weeks, I’ve only done my basic no makeup, makeup look. Hope to get my hair done soon to break me outta my funk.

  16. Ditte K. says:

    Do you bring Tabs on those walks? I find it very difficult bringing my kitten for a walk if the walk has any purpose – like putting my cover over the motorcycle 🙂

  17. Sherry says:

    Happy Birthday Karen!! Hope it was fun and fabulous!!

  18. Georgia says:

    2. Would you rather be a sexy mermaid or a sexy sasquatch? Mermaid
    3. What’s your least favorite yoga pose? Downward dog
    5. Are you a twin? no
    6. When was the last time you wore winged liner? Today

  19. Chris25 says:

    1. Which character would you be from Game of Thrones?: Hmm, Idk. Can I be a battle ax? People say that I am indestructible.

    2. Would you rather be a sexy mermaid or a sexy sasquatch?: Mermaid. I love mermaids.

    3. What’s your least favorite yoga pose?: I don’t really do yoga anymore. But when I did the headstand was hard to do.

    4. Describe your eighth-grade self in five words… Determined, optimistic, naive, trusting, hopeful.

    5. Are you a twin?: No, but my sister and I are just a year apart and people would think we were twins when we were small kids.

    6. When was the last time you wore winged liner?: Two days ago, baby!

    2. Would you rather be a sexy mermaid or a sexy sasquatch?

    Sexy mermaid.

    Happy, confident, bubbly, innocent, studious.

  21. 1. Which character would you be from Game of Thrones?
    Dany only because of Khal Drogo, an the FIRST Daario (I don’t care about the second one).
    2. Would you rather be a sexy mermaid or a sexy sasquatch? Mermaid, for sure.
    3. What’s your least favorite yoga pose? Does cat-cow count? 🙂

  22. Erin says:

    Very late to the party 🙁

    1. Which character would you be from Game of Thrones?

    Hmmm, I think we’d all like to be Dany, but I’m probably more of a Jon Snow meets Arya. I’m always trying to do the right thing and getting buggered for it but I’m also really angry. Plus I used to be a fencer, which I suppose is closer to a sword dancer than wielding a broadsword. Though maybe I’m reading into this too much.

    2. Would you rather be a sexy mermaid or a sexy sasquatch?

    Mermaid, duh.

    3. What’s your least favorite yoga pose?

    Anything with head or handstand components as I weigh a lot and don’t have the strength or balance to make up for it.

    4. Describe your eighth-grade self in five words…

    Dangerously good-looking and too smart.

    5. Are you a twin?

    Nope.

    6. When was the last time you wore winged liner?

    Uh, six months?
