Weekly Poll

1. How has your week been so far? It’s been ok. Still getting used to not seeing Chase around the house and realizing just how quiet cats are compared to dogs.

2. Do you have seasonal allergies? Yes, but they haven’t yet started…

3. What’s on your nails for St. Patrick’s Day? BB Couture Poison Ivy

4. Have you seen the new line of Tokidoki and Tarina Tarantino makeup at Sephora? I pretty much want everything from both of these lines. Just the packaging on these alone makes me drooooollllllll.

5. What blow dryer do you use? Well I recently returned the Clarisonic I got from Sephora because it did absolutely nothing for me in the 2 months I tried it. I had to get store credit, so I exchanged it for a T3 Featherweight blow dryer. I heard great things about these and I have a flat iron I like from them. Well now it’s going back also! First of all the on/off switch is on the STUPIDEST part of the handle, right where your hand holds the damn thing so I am constantly turning it off and on by mistake. Second, it makes my fine, straight hair totally static-y. And third, it only dries my hair 2-3 minutes faster than my $40.00 Conair from Target. So yeah, totally not worth the money. I will be using that money for some of the aforementioned Tokidoki and Tarina T. makeup. :)

6. Are you a fan of corned beef & cabbage? Yes as long as it’s not canned corned beef, which I find as repulsive as wet cat food.

7. What’s for lunch? I very rarely bring my lunch to work since we have nice cafeterias, so not sure yet. Hopefully something healthy-ish.

8. Do you have a favorite hand lotion? I am very partial to Bath & Body Works Blushing Cherry Blossom right now.

9. Are you related to anyone famous? I (think) I remember someone telling me we were distantly related to Franklin D. Roosevelt, the 32nd President, but maybe I dreamt that, lol!

10. What’s your favorite kitchen gadget? My silver Kitchen Aid mixer. I coveted one of these for like 15 years before I finally bought one a few years ago. My mother still has her original white one from over 40 years ago and it works perfectly!

    1. How has your week been so far? I keep loosing track of time. I thought it was Tuesday when I woke up. Imagine my surprise when I found out it was Wednesday. Getting up at 4am is a lot more difficult since we changed the clocks, but I love getting home when it’s still light out : ) It makes my heart sing.

    2. Do you have seasonal allergies? Now that you mention it, it would explain why my throat feels like someone is tickling it.

    3. What’s on your nails for St. Patrick’s Day? Well, I’m Irish, so I went with Hit Me with Your Best Shot from the Lippmann Collection. My grandfather is going to be so mad.

    4. Have you seen the new line of Tokidoki and Tarina Tarantino makeup at Sephora? I have not. I actually haven’t been in a Sephora in over a month. And, here, we get the cool newly launched brands last. I guess they don’t think us Bostonian women want to be cool.

    5. What blow dryer do you use? I have a $40 hair dryer from Target as well. It works really well for my thick hair.

    6. Are you a fan of corned beef & cabbage? No. Any meat that is better when it’s gray is NOT for me.

    7. What’s for lunch? I made Lemon Thyme Chicken last night but this morning I dropped my bag and the Tupperware container broke in my cute seat belt bag, and got lemon sauce all over everything. Now, I need to fend for myself. I’m thinking burrito.

    8. Do you have a favorite hand lotion? I’m partial to Look Ma, New Hands from Bath and Body Works, and the Sugar one from Fresh.

    9. Are you related to anyone famous? Nope.

    10. What’s your favorite kitchen gadget? My Keurig coffee machine. I gave up coffee for Lent so it hasn’t been used in a few weeks. I miss him!

    1. How has your week been so far? FABULOUS! It is sunny& warm outside and that just makes everything great.

    2. Do you have seasonal allergies? Yes, but they seem to be all year now, so I can’t really call them seasonal.

    3. What’s on your nails for St. Patrick’s Day? I wasn’t in the mood for the green thing, so I went spring/summery: Tips: Essie’s “Vanity Fairest” & Toes: OPI’s “Charged Up Cherry.” I can’t decide if I love or hate “Charged Up Cherry.” It’s so bright, almost neon against my skin.

    4. Have you seen the new line of Tokidoki and Tarina Tarantino makeup at Sephora? The Tarina Tarantino stuff I have seen, but not the Tokidoki.

    5. What blow dryer do you use? Conair something…got it at Costco after using something else (crappy!) for 15 years.

    6. Are you a fan of corned beef & cabbage? Not really my thing.

    7. What’s for lunch? PB & J sandwich, shared with my daughter.

    8. Do you have a favorite hand lotion? Yes. Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve (the tube with the airplane on it). Perfect hand cream because it absorbs to well and the light scent is just fresh.

    9. Are you related to anyone famous? I don’t think so.

    10. What’s your favorite kitchen gadget? My programmable coffee maker. I load it the night before and have fresh coffee waiting when I wake up in the morning. Best thing for mommy!

    1. How has your week been so far? Like last week. What was that like? Don’t ask.
    .
    2. Do you have seasonal allergies? Yes. I have since I was a small kid.
    .
    3. What’s on your nails for St. Patrick’s Day? Nothing. It’s Wednesday. I’m not doing green tomorrow, either.
    .
    4. Have you seen the new line of Tokidoki and Tarina Tarantino makeup at Sephora? Tarina, yes, Tokidoki, no. The pink glittery theme started to get on my nerves really quickly.
    .
    5. What blow dryer do you use? A Conair from some years ago. I bought it because it was literally the ONLY model with both heat and speed controls and a diffuser. Almost all dryers come with a hair straightening concentrator instead. My hair is curly. I do not want to straighten it. Blowing my hair out straight adds 15 years to my face.
    .
    6. Are you a fan of corned beef & cabbage? Yes. I have the corned beef in the crockpot right now and it smells wonderful. (This is the only acknowledgement of the “holiday” today I do. I hate that March has become about St. Patrick’s Day. It’s supposed to be about my birthday!)
    .
    7. What’s for lunch? It was a Chicken Strips Salad from Chick Fil A.
    .
    8. Do you have a favorite hand lotion? Nope. Whatever works and isn’t expensive.
    .
    9. Are you related to anyone famous? Nope.
    .
    10. What’s your favorite kitchen gadget? My serrated peeler. It is THE tool for peeling hard squash. (My coffee maker isn’t a kitchen gadget, it’s life support.)

    1. How has your week been so far?
    - Uneventful, plus I’ve been pretty bummed since the weekend; due to the weather I think. Today was beautiful and I did feel a lot better. I have a midterm on Friday though, eep.

    2. Do you have seasonal allergies?
    - Nope! *whew*

    3. What’s on your nails for St. Patrick’s Day?
    - Nothing x: I had done a blue/grey gradient based on Time Burton’s Cheshire Cat on Monday, but huge chunks of it flaked right off so I just removed the rest. I need a better basecoat!

    4. Have you seen the new line of Tokidoki and Tarina Tarantino makeup at Sephora?
    - Not in person. I saw a rather negative review of the Tarina Tarantino products, which honestly doesn’t surprise me. I hope the tokidoki line is better, although I’m really most interested in those makeup bags. I’m kind of afraid to walk into Sephora and see if they’re in stock though. I’m supposed to be saving money, and that place never helps!

    5. What blow dryer do you use?
    - My hair has a lot of layers and isn’t particularly thick, so it air dries quickly and I don’t need to blow dry it. I do have a 10+ year old Vidal Sassoon dryer that I use when I’m in a hurry, though. It barely works and I should probably buy a new one. haha.

    6. Are you a fan of corned beef & cabbage?
    - I don’t eat red meat. I like cabbage though! Not by itself of course :P

    7. What’s for lunch?
    - Took some leftover grilled portobello mushrooms that I found in the fridge and made a sandwich out of them, along with some peppers and tomatoes :P

    8. Do you have a favorite hand lotion?
    - No, but I’m always looking for a new one to try.

    9. Are you related to anyone famous?
    - Doubt it.

    10. What’s your favorite kitchen gadget?
    - I don’t really use gadgets. Um, my rice cooker? hahaha. We depend on that for dinner just about every night.

    1. How has your week been so far?
    It totally ROCKED! I went to the AC/DC concert in Osaka on tuesday, they were awesome! Picture a huge baseball stadium full of people going crazy, hundreds of horns and air guitars protruding from business suit sleeves, a tiny Japanese granny who looked 100 years old rocking out in the back row, schoolgirls not giving a fuck about cuteness for once, a whole lotta Rosey riding the Rock’n’Roll train and the one and only guitar hero Angus Young blowing everyone away with his *wicked* solo skills… OMFG! I want to see them again right now!

    2. Do you have seasonal allergies?
    Not yet…

    Not sure, but supposedly my dad is a decendant of Joseph Lister, the guy who introduced the use of antiseptics in medicine…

    10. What’s your favorite kitchen gadget?
    My all-purpose food maker for lazy people, aka rice cooker – just throw your rice and water in, add spices, veggies or basically anything you like, push the button and 30 minutes later you have a delicious bowl of pilaw :D
    And the meat mincer at my mom's place. Did you know that you can make cookies with a meat mincer?

    Have a nice week!

    1. How has your week been so far? Terrible. My father passed away on March 2, and since then nothing has been the same. I’ve had the courage to go back to work, but every now and then, I’ll think about how much I miss him and I cry.

    2. Do you have seasonal allergies? No.

    3. What’s on your nails for St. Patrick’s Day? OPI Black Onyx. Normally I’d wear a nice green on my nails (like Nubar Forest) but black felt appropriate now. (This is the first time I’ve worn black on my nails, actually.)

    4. Have you seen the new line of Tokidoki and Tarina Tarantino makeup at Sephora? No.

    5. What blow dryer do you use? Sedu – it dries my hair faster and with less heat.

    6. Are you a fan of corned beef & cabbage? Never tried it as a combo, although as a vegetarian, I probably won’t be able to unless I start eating meat again.

    7. What’s for lunch? I made vegetarian shepherd’s pie from scratch. It had buttery mashed potatoes, green beans, carrots, corn, broccoli, onions, lentils, kidney beans, chickpeas, other beans, and a bunch of spices to make it yummy!

    8. Do you have a favorite hand lotion? I love the Aveeno hand lotions best because they last the longest and really seem to heal dry skin unlike other lotions like Lubraderm that just rest on top of your skin and don’t seem to do anything except come off when you wash your hands.

    9. Are you related to anyone famous? Not that I know of. But…maybe one day I’ll be famous. ;P

    10. What’s your favorite kitchen gadget? My can-opener. It’s the kind that doesn’t leave any sharp edges.
