Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 547

So…what is the Monday Poll?

Good question! It isn’t, contrary to its name, an actual poll. 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 gazillion years (more than 10!). I love reading your answers, and it helps me get my week off to a great start. 👍

1. Orange blush: yea or nay?

Yea! (Or YAY!). Particularly if there’s a a wee bit of tasteful warm golden shimmer up in the mix. I’m into it.

2. Orange nail polish: yea or nay?

Nay…unless we’re talking about something for Halloween. Basically, though, I’m just not an orange nail polish person.

3. What’s one of your childhood Halloween memories?

I was in third grade at the time, and my friend and I went trick-or-treating 🎃 by ourselves in our neighborhood… We came upon a house with a porch light on, but there were no kids waiting at the door.

We thought, “Cool, we won’t have to elbow anybody for candy!” We strolled up the walkway, la-dee-da, thinking business as usual, and rang the doorbell.

After about a minute of waiting for someone to come to the door, BAM! — the lights suddenly started flashing really fast. Seemingly out of nowhere came a loud “MWAH-AH-AH-AH-AH-AH!” Then somebody screaming bloody murder as REALLY LOUD scary Halloween music started playing!

Man, we ran back to the sidewalk and all the way to our houses so fast you would’ve thought we were Junior Olympic sprinters. We were also screaming the entire time, LOL! I bet we gave whoever set up that house a good laugh. 😂

4. Your holiday pie of choice?

Pecan, baby!

5. How’s your line dancing?

I can’t do any fancy footwork or anything, so I’m not a professional, but I can hang. 🙂

What the heck they do with those XXL pumpkins?

You know, the ginormous ones you see at pumpkin patches and fall displays? They always have at least a couple at the Honor System Pumpkin Patch in Larkspur, which is a town in southern Marin County. We were there yesterday and I couldn’t help but wonder about their fate after Halloween and Thanksgiving.

Does somebody gut the pumpkins, then roast all the pumpkin seeds? Are the pumpkin seeds XXL, too? What happens to the actual pumpkin? Is it turned into lots and lots of pumpkin soup? SO MANY QUESTIONS.

I’m dying to know, so if you have any insight please spill the beans.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen
