So…what is the Monday Poll?
Excellent question! It isn’t, contrary to its name, an actual poll, like with little clicky buttons. It’s just a list of five more or less random questions I’ve been posting on this blog every Monday morning for the past quadrillion years (since 2007). I love reading your answers, and it helps me get my week off to a good start.
1. Statement bag, statement shoe or statement lip?
This like my Sophie’s choice of statement items because I love them all! But I guess I’d go with the shoes because they’d be lower maintenance. I’d have to reapply the statement lip throughout the day, and if I were carrying a statement bag, I’d just spend the whole day worrying about not losing it.
At least the shoes should just stay on my feet, LOL!
2. Orange blush or pink blush?
Neither! — an orange-pink blush. 😊
3. Have you ever done a paint night?
Just once, and it was tons of fun. My friend and I went to one and painted a flying unicorn with a rainbow on its butt. 🦄
4. Should lipstick smell like food?
Hmm… I don’t mind a subtle vanilla fragrance, like MAC lipstick, but anything else I can do without. The sweet, sugary scents, in particular, make my tummy churn!
5. Have you ever been hypnotized?
Yes, in high school. It was for a psychology class. They had a hypnotist come in, and a few of us volunteered to be subjects…
We mostly just did silly stuff, or so I’m told — jumping up and down on one foot and acting like a hyena. Things like that.
New favorite food spot: Amy’s Drive-Thru
Hiya, friend. Happy Monday! 😊
How was your weekend? Mine was delicious. We went to visit my parents in the East Bay on Friday night. El Hub and I had a movie date night and saw the new Spiderman, which I thought was great, BTW!
We stayed the night there, then left early on Saturday to run a few errands up in Cotati and Rohnert Park.
That’s where we found this gem: Amy’s Drive Thru!
Yes, the Amy’s, the same ones with the frozen foods and soups. Turns out they also have a small chain of fast food restaurants with lots of organic, non-GMO and gluten-free fare, which are all things I don’t usually attribute to fast food places with a drive through, but this place has it all…AND it has a living garden on the rooftop.
Everything on the menu is vegetarian (with vegan options, too), and everything can be ordered gluten-free, which is why we ended up going there, since El Hub has Celiac.
They serve vegetarian hamburgers, fries, burritos, baked goods, pizza, mac and cheese, chili, soup, shakes, sodas and salads.
