“The producer of the Harry Potter film series and its latest spinoff is moving from Fantastic Beasts to feline ones. David Heyman announced that he’s teaming up with China’s Alibaba Pictures Group to adapt fantasy series Warriors for the big screen. And yes, it’s about fighting cats.”

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 NINE (!) 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. How long are your nails right now?

Not long at all. They don’t even go to the tips of my fingertips! — and you know what, though? I like ’em that way.

I had long nails for years and years and years, but short nails are so much easier for me. They’re easier to type with, and I don’t have to worry so much about them breaking or, like, worry about accidentally scratching the baby or me poking my eye out while I’m doing my liner.

2. How old were you when you started cooking?

Oh, my goodness… I’m a little ashamed to admit this, but I didn’t start cooking until I left for college at 18 (!). And, when I started, I could not do sh*t. I couldn’t even warm up food in a pot!

No, seriously. I remember going to the dorm kitchen and trying to warm up some leftovers one day that my mom had given me. I threw them in a pot, but then I forgot about them and almost set the dorm on fire.

Yup… But I’ve gotten better since then. I can usually follow a recipe now and have it not turn out terribly.

3. Describe your hair in three words.

Long, unruly, chocolaty

4. What would/could you do if you only had 60 seconds to do your eye makeup?

See, this is where being chronically late really comes in handy. I could get quite a bit done in 60 seconds. Like, I could fill in my brows with a black pencil, curl my lashes, whack some mascara on my upper lashes (I wouldn’t even bother with my lower lashes; they’re a different beast entirely) and tightline my upper lash line with a black pencil.

And I know I can do these things in 60 seconds because I just timed it.

5. What are you doing for Thanksgiving?

Yay! We’re having it at our house this year, so both sets of Connor’s grandparents and my brother are coming over.

I had all of these elaborate, grand plans in my head to make every single dish from scratch…but I just couldn’t deal with the turkey, so I ended up ordering a few things from a local market that makes the best turkey and sides. So we’re gonna have that, hang out, play with the baby, and that’s it. I’m really looking forward to it.

A new week…

While doing some cleaning around the house last weekend, I found a bunch of random things I thought I’d lost, like a pan of MAC Sunbasque Blush (yay!) and a crazy cat lady action figure that my brother had given me for Christmas a few years ago.

It’s going on my shelf of cat lady things. 🙂

Don’t you love finding buried treasure around the house?

I hope you get some drama-free time off this week to relax and eat some of your favorite things. What are you up to today?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen
