Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 553


k goat selfie - Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 553
Goat selfies should be a thing

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. Have you ever ridden a moped?

Nope, but I seriously thought about doing it many times when I lived in SF. I just never got around to actually doing it.

There’s something very appealing to me about tooling around town in a mint green Vespa for some reason (it’s gotta be mint green though… No other color will do). I’ll probably never do it at this point because I know myself way too well, and I absolutely do not belong on anything motorized with two wheels.

2. An instance when you were genuinely shocked?

A few years ago when El Hub got home from work and told me that our long-time family friends were getting a divorce.

It blew my mind. It was the proverbial “They seemed so happy!” thing. It just goes to show you that you can’t always tell from the outside what people are really going through.

I’m also a bonafide softie, and I always want to believe that love lasts forever, so I was shocked — like jaw dropped to the floor — when I found out.

3. List all of the skin care you’re wearing on your face right meow.

Ooh! OK, here we go! These are in the order in which they’re applied…

  • Drunk Elephant C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream
  • Tarte Knockout Tingling Treatment
  • Kate Somerville Dermal Quench Wrinkle Warrior
  • Kate Somerville Anti Bac Acne Clearing Lotion
  • Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream mixed with a few drops of Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil
  • Clinique Superdefense Broad Spectrum SPF 20 for Very Dry to Dry Combination Skin

4. How often do strangers mess up your name?

Not too often. “Karen” is pretty basic, but I’ve still gotten my share of creative monikers written on my to-go cups when I’ve ordered a toasty beverage from Starbucks, Cairn, Carrot, Care and Karun (pronounced Ka-roon).

Sometimes I think maybe the baristas do it on purpose to amuse themselves, which is TOTALLY what I would do if I were writing names on cups all day long, ha ha ha!

5. On a scale from “Fabulously festive” to “bah humbug,” how do you feel about the holidays today?

Full-tilt fabulously festive 🎅🎄. I’m feeling the spirit!

Life Lesson No. 3,546

Girl…if you’re gonna take a selfie with a goat, be prepared for that goat to 1) lick your hair and 2) outshine your bad self.

I guess I should be glad the goat didn’t try to eat my hair? After all, my hair did smell a little like bacon and Cheetos, so I wouldn’t have blamed her had she tried, ha ha! She (the goat) lives on a Christmas tree farm in town. We visited it yesterday, not to get our tree yet, because we’re doing that next weekend, but because I wanted to take a family selfie for the holidays, and it was the closet Christmassy-looking place nearby. #keepingitreal

So, yeah, if you live in Novato and saw a lady shamelessly walking around Cousins’ Christmas Trees yesterday with a selfie stick, looking for good lighting, that was yours truly!
