Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 579

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. Your preferred nail shape?

Slightly squared like a very tired, very lazy oval. So not overly square.

2. What would happen if you rubbed your cat’s belly?

I realize that many kitties aren’t down with belly rubs, but Tabs loved the tum-tum action. He would always purr when I rubbed his belly fur, which was longer than the rest of his coat. One of my favorite things to do was to run my fingers through that delicious belly meat!

3. What TV shows are you currently watching?

I’m bouncing back and forth between Claws (although I’m getting to where I need a break), American Ninja Warrior, The Bold Type and Black Mirror (the new season is only three episodes).

Hmm… Seeing it now, it looks like I watch a lot of TV, but it’s usually just on in the background while I do other stuff.

4. Last thing you cooked?

We’ll use the term, “cooked,” loosely in this case, but it was an egg salad sandwich with sliced tomato on a Dave’s Killer Bagel (seriously, SO good). Then I sprinkled a handful of chopped green onions on top.

OK, can we talk about egg salad strategy for a moment? Normally, I chop the entire egg, yolk and all, then mix the mayo in, but this time I separated the yolks out first, mixed the mayo in with the yolks, and added the chopped egg whites afterward, and I swear it tasted better than usual (even though they were still technically the same ingredients).

Maybe I’m just reading too much into this. LOL!

5. Are you rocking the tightline today?

Tightline, FOR SURE!

Feelin’ cheesy

I always love finding new places to explore, which we did last weekend at Marin French Cheese. They have a cute little store where you can buy their cheeses and other picnic fixin’s like fresh bread, drinks (both adult and otherwise), fresh fruit and preserves, sandwiches and desserts — and all of that’s just for starters.

The shop is located about 20 minutes west of Novato on Novato Boulevard right at the Point Reyes junction, and they’ve been making cheese there since 1865!

After you choose your wares and noms, you can enjoy them al fresco down by the pond a few steps away from the store. And if you happen have a fishing pole in the trunk, you can also fish (catch and release only)!

Highly recommended if you’ll be staying in/near Novato, or if you’re on your way out to Point Reyes or Tomales Bay.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
