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.
- My spirit animal is ______.
A tiger! 🐯
Because deep down inside I’m really just a big jungle cat who loves the water.
Plus, the stripes, and you know how those never go out of style.
- Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight?
Yes, and it was hella stressful, but at least it was on the way back home, and not on my way to the destination.
It happened a few years ago on a quick connecting flight from Italy to Germany. It was one of those tight turnarounds where you have to run through the airport terminal to catch the connecting flight, and I guess my checked bag (which had all of my souvenirs in it, like boxes of Italian chocolate , which I really, REALLY wanted to eat, LOL!) got left behind.
I learned a valuable lesson though. Ever since then I do whatever it takes to avoid from having to check in my bags, especially bags containing makeup and chocolate.
Thankfully, the bag showed up at my doorstep in Novato about a week later (so I got my chocolate, yay!).
- Does your family have any summer traditions?
No big ones, really, but El Hub and I do like to spend a weekend in Lake Tahoe. We like to kayak on the lake and hike and go out to dinner, but when we were planning to go a few weeks ago, we had to cancel at the last minute because it was straight-up raining up there, which is kind of weird for July.
I’m hoping we can still make it out there before it gets chilly, maybe next month or early September.
- Bronzer makes me feel ______.
And less like a member of the Army of the Undead.
- Lattes: with or without foam?
The foam does absolutely nothing for me. I’d rather have the foam space dedicated to filling up the cup with more latte.
Your turn. Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ’em!
1. My spirit animal is ______.
2. Have you (or an airline) ever lost your luggage on a flight?
3. Does your family have any summer traditions?
4. Bronzer makes me feel ______.
5. Lattes: with or without foam?
Hello, sweet pea!
I’m back and oh, so relaxed after spending the weekend with my high school pals Jen and Cindy. It was a belated birthday sleepover involving a whole lotta nothing and the hotel pool.
It’s amazing what a little lounging around can do for your soul. I feel like a reenergized Energizer Bunny Karen.
I hope you were able to get in some relaxing yourself last weekend. How are you doing today? How’s your morning been so far?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
