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 NINE (!) 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.
- Recent junk food craving?
Yesterday it was a huge plate of fries and a veggie burger with cheese and avocado…and a tall vanilla milkshake to wash it down.
I didn’t get it, though, because, well, I had leftovers at home that I wanted to finish, but soon…
Right now I could go for a pancake breakfast from McDonald’s. 🙂 I haven’t had one of those in ages.
- How do you think you’d do if you had to have long, pointy nails for a week?
I’ll never know how Ri-Ri pulls it off, because GIRL — I’d be a mess!
When my nails get even a millimeter beyond the tips of my fingers, I feel completely non-functional, so I can’t imagine… How would I change Connor’s diapers, or type, or pet Tabs, or wash dishes, or apply eyeliner, or chop fruit?
I’d probably end up in the hospital.
- Has anything funny happened to you lately?
Well, I was taking out the garbage last week one night and accidentally dropped my keys into the bin.
Please note: never, EVER accidentally drop your keys into a large garbage bin, especially down at the curb at night, because getting them out is a comedy of errors.
Of course, my keys dropped all the way down to the bottom of the bin and, of course, our bin is unusually huge, so I couldn’t just reach down into the bin and get them out, so I had to take ALL OF THE GARBAGE BAGS out of the bin, one at a time, and stack them up around me, and then use a shovel to reach down into the bin and fish out my keys.
Also, I couldn’t see what I was doing because it was dark outside…
It was like a sitcom sketch.
- How much spice and/or heat do you like in your food?
Just enough to flavor, I guess, without overtaking the dish.
Like, if I’m eating a plate of broccoli, I want it to actually taste like broccoli, ya know?
For heat, I’m a total wimp. I don’t mind a little because it keeps things interesting, but when a dish is hot for the sake of setting your mouth on fire, I can’t handle it.
- What was your last major makeup fail?
LOL! I wore a red liquid lipstick to run errands a couple weeks ago and somehow ended up with lipstick smeared outside my lip line.
No kidding — I looked like the Joker, and I looked that way for hours because El Hub, who was with me the entire time, failed to say anything!
I honestly don’t know if he was secretly laughing at me on the inside (because that’s something I’d totally do), or if he thought I did it intentionally, or if he was just paying absolutely no attention whatsoever.
That’s how I looked.
Your turn. 🙂 Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ’em!

Here, sweets, let me get you some coffee. I think I’m gonna need the real stuff today.
Cream? Sugar? Jar of Nutella and a spoon? Here ya go…
How many times have we spent our Mondays together? If you’ve been visiting MBB since the start, that could be 494 Mondays!
Wow, that’s a lot of Mondays…
Today my main goal is to savor the little things, like this hot cup of coffee, the tapping sound of my fingers on the keyboard (it’s comforting), a cat on my lap and Connor’s smile.
Hi, friend. 🙂 What’s on your to-do list today?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
