Monday Poll: November 5, 2012

I felt like doing a Monday Poll, like Karen did. I wasn't feeling creative, so I just copied her questions.

Sad. :( I learned of a former co-workers' passing while I was at work today. All I could think is that life is short and we need to enjoy every moment.

2.Mystery or romance?
Definitely mystery. I just watched the TV show Homeland for the first time and am already absorbed in the story because it's a mystery.



3.The girls wanna go the movies to see the last Twilight. You in or out?
Out. I'd rather see Lincoln or Anna Karenina in the theater. Vampires aren't my thing.



4.Have you ever won (or placed in) a limbo contest?
I don't think I ever won one, but I loved roller skating limbo back in the 80's. I was pretty good at it!

5.What time did you go to bed last night?
Around 10:15. We really need to get to bed earlier. I am always tired during the week.

6.When was the last time you felt really and truly alone?
Almost every day in the spring of 2007. I was living in California, not liking my job or social life and many days ended in tears.

7.When was the last time you felt really and truly loved?
I feel loved every single day, by my husband, cats and parents especially.

8.Is there anything you’d like to accomplish by the end of the year?
Yes, to figure out a new blog name soon. I'd also like to further explore how to turn my hobbies into a career.

9.How long are your nails?
They are on the shorter side. Since I type at work all day, I like to keep them as short as possible.

10.Weekly goals:
-get to the gym at least four times
-enjoy all that life has to offer because my former co-worker cannot do that anymore
-keep exploring new blog names
-find a vegetarian/vegan recipe for Thanksgiving dinner (any suggestions are most welcome). I finally have a fellow vegetarian at the dinner table this year, so I need to find something for the both of us to eat.


  1. Chris really wants to see Lincoln or Anna Karenina. Can you go with him, so I don't have to? :) In fact, he's re-reading Anna Karenina right now.

    I suggest quinoa filled acorn squash for a vegetarian Thanksgiving recipe. I was just reading Joanne's latest post ( which reminded me that it's one of my favorite dishes this time of year.

  2. I'm so sorry about your co-worker. You're completely right, we shouldn't leave things until tomorrow because tomorrow doesn't always come.

    I just got a vegetarian book from Pampered Chef. I'll let you know if there is anything Thanksgiving worthy in there!
