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. Whatcha wearing on your lips?
Oh, not much. Just Urban Decay Rehab Makeup Prep Lip Love balm for the time being. I’ll put on lipstick later (haven’t decided what color I want to go with yet), but my lips have been drier than usual, ever since I started upping up my glycolic acid game.
Lip Love is so bomb, BTW. It’s pretty thick and very moisturizing, and it actually lasts on my lips for hours. It’s not a typical disappearing lip balm that you have to reapply 50 times per day, although you can do that also if you want.
2. The fictional character you’d most want to have on your side in a zombie/alien/killer virus/government takeover apocalypse?
Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead, and maybe — just maybe — I’d make it through the first day without being turned into a zombie or transported up to the alien mother ship.
And if Rick were unavailable, then Brienne of Tarth, because homegirl does not f*ck around.
3. In your estimation, what’s a beauty brand that doesn’t get its due?
I discovered their shampoo (hair cleanser) and conditioner a few months ago and since got distracted by other hair products, but that’s mostly because of my beauty product ADD. The more I think about it, the more I’m realizing how much I loved the way they made my hair look and feel, so I need to revisit Pai Shau again very soon.
4. How do you feel about the Dirty Dancing remake?
Frankly…I’m pissed about it. Seriously, what crazy person decided that the first movie, which is PERFECTION, needed to be remade?
Of course, I still plan to watch it anyway…even though I’m hating on it at the moment. ?
5. How do you think you’d look with a beard?
Quite dashing! I’d keep it closely trimmed and neat. It would probably be salt and pepper, which would make me looked very distinguished, LOL!
I’d ROCK a beard.
6. Chili or mac & cheese?
Shoot, girl, why can’t I have both at the same time!?
OK, well, if I have to choose, then I choose mac & cheese (haha, I almost just typed MAC & cheese). With truffle oil.
7. What’s something kinda weird you like doing?
Sometimes when I get home from the gym I’ll sit in my car in the garage and listen to music for 15 minutes.
Because there are no little humans or animals up on me, and nobody asking me questions, and I can just rock out by myself.
Happy Memorial Day to you
I think I’m gonna take it easy today, which sounds perfectly alright to me. Yesterday I went to my friend’s baby shower in the city, and then in the afternoon I went and got my roots done, so right now I’m basking in the glory of freshly dyed roots, ah…
Are you doing anything holiday related?
It just occurred to me that today would be a great day for burgers, fries and/or chips, so we may do that later for lunch. This seems like good snacking weather. LOL!
Have a great Memorial Day and a splendid week. Sending sweet hugs and kisses to ya, and I hope something important goes your way. Talk to you soon.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
