So…what is the Monday Poll?
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 10 (!) 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 practiced your smile in the mirror?
I totally have! I vividly remember doing it before picture day in middle school.
I practiced one smile where I’d press my lips together so that I could see the dimples that only show up when my lips are pursed (I look like a mean Filipino auntie when I do this, though!), and there was another smile that was a big toothy grin that looked like I was laughing, “Hahaha!” I looked CRAY.
2. What was the last song you heard?
Chris Cornell’s Can’t Change the World from his first solo album, Euphoria Morning.
It’s very Beatles-esque.
3. Shorts, a skirt or long pants?
Shorts, homie! I’m not into skirts… I’m short-waisted, so they end up riding up under my boobs, and you know how I feel about pants, a.k.a. leg prisons.
4. How well do you deal with change?
Not as well as I did 10 years ago, and I think I’m better at handling planned changes than unexpected changes, but I think that’s because life has been so routine for so long, which is both a good and a bad thing.
5. When was the last time you cleaned your lash curler?
If we were talking about the Shu Uemura curler I retired a few weeks ago…girl, you don’t even want to know the real answer to that. Must have been years.
But I cleaned my new Surratt curler last Friday though! 🙂
I hope somebody cooks a meal for you this week (isn’t that the best?). If that doesn’t happen, then I hope your highlighter kisses the tops of your cheekbones with the same gentleness that Ryan Gosling uses when he kisses puppies and babies.
OK, someone’s in a crazy mood day. Must be the heat. My office is already baking…
Have a good one, sweets. Talk soon!
