Monday Poll… on a Tuesday

Posted by Lipglossiping On December - 22 - 2009

Things are hugely hectic at Casa de Lipglossing.  Leila appears to be coming down with a sickness and diarrhea bug just as we’re supposed to be packing up for a 325 mile trip to Mr. L’s parents for Christmas.  I’d love to have more time to update the blog, but time seems to be the one thing I have precious little of.

To keep things ticking over, I present you with a Monday Poll, on a Tuesday!  I used to love doing these and haven’t done one for aaaaages!!

1. Mood:

Fretful and anxious

2. Left or Right-handed:

I’m a lefty, I turn the paper sideways to write on it.  Apparently I’m not gonna live as long as you righties.  Something to look forward to.

3. Where do you consider home:

Hmmm… I feel at home here in Hampshire on the South Coast of England, but I feel equally at home in South Sydney, Australia.  I think I’m quite adaptable.

4. Three things you’re grateful for:

My husband and baby daughter, my health and my iPhone, dinner, makeup, nice nails, camera, stuff.

5. Eyes/Lips/Cheeks:

Eyes: Yesterday’s mascara *rubs*

Lips: Nothing

Cheeks: Nothing

Boring, I know… today I have been mostly doing the laundry.

6. Have you ever studied abroad?

Nope.

7. Do you collect anything?

Yes! Makeup, Nail Polishes, Avengers Memorabilia, Dust…

8. Last text you sent…

I don’t do texting… I’m the slowest texter on the planet.  I’d much rather make a quick phonecall.

9. Outfit

Jogging Bottoms and a semi-shapeless t-shirt.  Laundry day remember?

10. Weekly Goals

Get the family up to the North East of England without too much drama, eat as much as possible without putting on a single pound in weight and help my family enjoy Christmas despite us all being a bit under the weather.

I’d love to hear your version of the above, let me know your answers in the comments!

    According to my 1st year psych prof, lefties have a shorter lifespan because the world is built to suit right handed people, thus, we (I’m a lefty too!) have a higher incidence of accidental deaths. But that said, according to my 3rd year health psych prof, accidental deaths are the best way to go because they are generally quick and fairly painless. Morbid, for sure, but I guess it’s kind of a silver lining?

    what a clever answer – “i collect makeup”

    i usually say nothing, but now i have the absolute best answer thanks to you! yay!

    and of course, hope your baby girl feels better in no time, sickies are not fun and sickie babies are the absolute worst *hugs*

    2. Left or Right-handed:

    Lefty!! My friend recently sprained her wrist so is learning how to write left-handed and all these lessons on YouTube she links me to amuses me because they’re true… I Just don’t remember ‘learning’ to write that way!

    3. Where do you consider home:

    Calgary :) I haven’t lived anywhere else

    4. Three things you’re grateful for:

    My parents’ good health, my back getting better, and dinner with my best girls today :)

    6. Have you ever studied abroad?

    7. Do you collect anything?

    8. Last text you sent…

    I told a friend that if she didn’t spread the word I would send my grandma, and her army of fuzzy friends to her house to attack her with bananas.

    Just another normal, average, everyday text for me. :)

    9. Outfit

    PJs! What else?!

    10. Weekly Goals

    Actually get a last minute present for my cousin. Doubt she remembers me. 😛 And of course, manage to get out of the house for a few parties. 😀

    This was a nice poll – hope you’re having a good time… doing laundry… um, that came out weird. 😉

    :)
