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.
- When was the last time you went all out with your makeup?
I think it’s been about two weeks… Or has it been three? Funny how time gets all mushy when you’re doing hard time in baby jail.
I did a bright blue lid with warm browns in the crease. Foundation, concealer, brows, lashes and lips (frame the face!). It was the most elaborate eye makeup I’d worn since pre-Connor.
I didn’t recognize myself in the mirror either. I was like, that can’t be me because she doesn’t look like a freshly turned zombie (it was me though).
- What was the last goofy thing you did?
Dude! Every single day of my life is a series of goofy things strewn together one after another! The last one involved a song which I sang to Connor while I changed her diaper. It included various silly references to poop.
- When was the last time you checked a social network, and which one was it?
It was Facebook about 20 minutes ago. I watched a video about how people don’t interact with each other as much anymore due to smartphones…and then I thought about how funny it would be to be watching this video on my phone in a public place while not interacting with anybody. 🙂
- How do you feel about full-coverage foundation?
Different now than I did a few months ago. I think full coverage looks great in photographs, and I like to wear full coverage for pics, but it’s a lot of look for everyday life. At least, lately for me, but this has been a relatively recent development. I haven’t been wearing a lot of makeup lately, and I’ve started getting accustomed to seeing myself without it.
Even so, in the times I have put on a little extra makeup over the past few weeks, I felt like I was wearing a ton.
Does that make any sense at all?
Anyway, I go through phases like this every once in a while. They usually last a few months, and then I’m back to doing the full-coverage thing.
- Should you trust your instincts?
Yes, always! Because whenever my gut is telling me to do something, or not do something, and I don’t go with my gut, it always comes back to bite me in the butt.
Your gut knows… That’s all I’m saying.
Your turn. 🙂 Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ’em!
