Thursday Poll


I wrote this poll while all hopped up on cold medicine. I forgot Joeybunny was doing the poll last week, and then once I remembered I figurered I would just finish it anyway. So enjoy my cold medicine induced ramblings. See if you can follow along.
-Elvira
P.S. I'm feeling much better now.


Meteorological Spring started on Monday, March 1st. There are still mountains of snow in front of my house and taking up good parking spots at the office. No worries. I just slapped on some Ineke After My Own Heart perfume (Lilacs) and went along my merry way. Then it hit me. Like a Mack Truck. No not a truck full of MAC cosmetics I'm talking about a Semi/18 Wheeler Mack Truck..with the bulldog on the front. Yeah. I got a cold. Damn it all to hell. Why to little children have to be such horrible transmitters of disease. I have had more colds in the last three years than I have had in my entire life. You would think that with all the advances in science they would find a cure for the common cold...oh wait. We aren't that technically advanced. We have no cure for Cancer, AIDS, Ebola, Zombies. We have no Flying Cars, no Jet Packs, No sass talking robot maids. We are basically living in the dark ages...with an Internet connection. I'm kinda like Veruca Salt from Willy Wonka. I want it all NOW! I want my cure for the common cold. I want my meal in pill form, I want my sass talking robot...OK. I don't want a robot because I have an irrational fear of robots. Ever since I saw that movie AI I have been terrified of them. Don't ask me why. It was a terribly sad movie and a bawled like a baby at the end...which brings me back to my original point...why are children such terrible harbingers of disease? You see how mu mind is totally wacko when I'm sick? I make no sense, I think in circles and non sequiturs. I'm gonna lay down now and nap. You answer the poll questions. I'll be fine.
On To The Poll!

1. Lip Of The Day? - L'Occitaine 10% Shea Butter lip balm. Does this wondrous lip balm deserve a review here on PinkSith? Nah. but it sure is soothing and waxy..just perfect for keeping chapped lips at bay as I sleep with my mouth open because I can't breathe though my nose.

2. What is one of your Phobias? - I shared Robots with you but I'm also afraid of insects and orange foundation.

3. Beauty item (Type & Brand) you realized you can't live without? - I cannot live without my trusty La Mer Loose Translucent Powder. I used another powder the other day and I was a chalky cakey mess. Ah La Mer. If they ever discontinue this item I will but 20 of them before they disappear.

4. When you were 10 years old, what futuristic item did you think we would have by 2010? - I for sure thought we would have a colony on the moon...or at least robots to fight our wars. Skynet, terminators, etc.

5. Beauty item (Type & Brand) you realized that you would be better off without? - I do not need MAC Golden Bronzer. I never need to use this abomination in powder form on my face ever. I look like an oompa loompa that spent too much time at the strip club and now is covered with glitter.

12 comments:

  1. 1. Lip Of The Day?

    Avon Glazewear Liquid Lip in Real Red with E.L.F. Studio Lip Lock, the most perfect clear liner in the universe besides DuWop. Even better than Duwop because
    A) it's an automatic crayon instead of a pencil needing sharpening

    B) $3 vs $21

    2. What is one of your Phobias? -

    Not really a phobia but I'll go out of my way to avoid wet sidewalks. Not rain or snow sidewalks but Supers-hosing-the-garbage-to-the-curb wet sidewalks. Especially in summer and especially in sandals or sandal-type shoes.

    3. Beauty item (Type & Brand) you realized you can't live without? -

    E.L.F. blush brush. Everyone says it too small, but for me it's perfect. A smallish diamond-shaped brush is just the right size and shape for my cheeks.

    4. When you were 10 years old, what futuristic item did you think we would have by 2010?

    Let's see. . . I can't remember that far back. Probably cars that flew.

    5. Beauty item (Type & Brand) you realized that you would be better off without?

    Nude lipstick or gloss that is not Rimmel Vamp Chic. I should just give up searching.

  2. 1. Lip Of The Day? - Stila High Shine in Diane. As far as lipbalm goes, I've been using some minty Beauty Rush thing from Victoria's Secret at night, and it does the trick.

    2. What is one of your Phobias? -
    Dying in a car crash. Big hairy spiders. Losing my family.

    3. Beauty item (Type & Brand) you realized you can't live without? - My beloved MAC color corrector concealer in peach. The only thing that really makes the purple circles recede.

    4. When you were 10 years old, what futuristic item did you think we would have by 2010? - Tourist space travel, yo! I was all ready to go visit a colony on the moon for my summer vacation!


    5. Beauty item (Type & Brand) you realized that you would be better off without? - MAC Mineralized Shadows. I like a little color with my giant glitter flakes, thank you.

    I can relate to kid carrying germs thing. When my daughter started pre-school we were both sick every month for the first year!

    1. Chanel Rouge Allure in Rose Blossom it was LE a few years ago

    2. Heights--going up is find but I ain't comin' down. Mice & rats, even pet ones

    3. Dior Iconic mascara

    4. I love The Jetsons and thought we would all live like that

  4. LOTD? NYX Chestnut Gloss of Latte Gloss, whatever I pick up on my desk @ work.

    Biggest Phobia? Spiders, I scream like a 13 yr old @ a Jonas Brother concert. Also, my son or mother being hurt in a way that can't be fixed.

    Beauty Item you realized you can't live without? MAC Brow Set in Girl/Boy, I have been through many, since I colour my hair red, this makes my brows match perfectly, does not smear or smudge. $13 and lasts at least 4-6 months.

    Where I was 10 what did I think we would have by now? Something to do the freaking cleaning, I am domestically challenged, my mother despairs for me. I hate to clean, I don't mind laundry, but I want something that will dust and sweep for me.

    Beauty Item I am better of without? ANY bronzer. I am far too pale, I DO NOT bronze in anyway by artifical OR natural means.

  5. I loved your cold medicine induced rambling - it was very crazy lady sitting on her porch yelling at the kids to not stomp on her daisies on her lawn...

    1. LOTD - trying out Double Dare cremesheen glass w/out a liner. Yup, it's a pass.

    2. Phobias - rodents particularly roaches. Yuck the thought of them just gives me the creeps!

    3. Beauty item i cannot live without - easy MAC espresso e/s with the #266 brush. I was traumatized for having severly light and sparse lashes as a young girl so I refuse to ever leave the house without my brows. Yes, this includes going to the gym early in the morning on weekends.

    4. Hmm...I really thought that flying car would have taken off by now! I would love my very own Rosie the robot, btw...

    5. Beauty item I don't need? Probably the Diorshow mascara I bought in Blue. I think I was just excited it was on sale for $10 at Sephora and I was in Jersey only paying 7% sales tax (compared to SF's 9.5% sales tax).

    5. Better off without: dior tinted moisturizer...such a patchy finish and too light

    3. Beauty item (Type & Brand) you realized you can't live without? - Wet & Wild #666 lip pencil, it's like my lips only better mixed with Avon DewKiss Lip Dew, the whole thing costs about $1.79 and I always get compliments.

    4. When you were 10 years old, what futuristic item did you think we would have by 2010? - The "pil into a meal machine" like they had on the Jetsons...lol.

  11. Get well soon Elvira!

    1. Lip of the day: Almond-buttercream lip balm my daughter and I made.

    2. Phobia: One word - airplane. I cannot get on one unless I'm so drunk I'm lucky to get through security.

    3. I can't live without two things: a) NP Set Concealer Pen - I have yet to have dark circles this won't hide; and b) Pixi Eye Bright Liner, which makes a drastic improvement in my eyes the day after I work a double.

    4. I really thought things would be like the Jetsons (ahhhh, the excitement for the future we had in the 70’s!). Now that I have spent enough years seeing other people drive like jerks, I must admit I’m glad our vehicles are still on the ground!

    5. Better off without: All makeup with ultramarines (sneaky name for sulfa) in it - I've had enough trips to the ER in the last three months to last me a good 20 years (how long it will probably take me to pay off the ER bills…).
