Monday Teeny Poll

69% of you disagree with LA Unified’s ban on chocolate milk at schools. Which in turn means 30% of you agree.   I’m going to have to say that I am not a fan of the ban. Yeah, it’s some extra sugar.  But if a child is very overweight, then I don’t think it is just the chocolate milk that is the issue.  If the child drinks regular milk at school, yet does not have access to fruits and veggies and lots of physical playtime, then it doesn’t really matter in the long run.  And what about those kids that aren’t overweight at all?  Why shouldn’t they get to choose?

Today I’m all about the British tabloid scandal.  Well, sort of.

44% of you consider the weather when deciding how long to leave leftovers out.  17% do a couple of hours no matter what, another 17% of you don’t even care, and another 17% of you REALLY don’t care.  Only 3% of you are as anal as I am, it seems.  Er, well, maybe that was just me.

On Friday I got my hair did, and as I was writing the check out to my stylist, I thought to myself that I couldn’t even remember the check I wrote before that.

Oooh! Last week’s poll about watching movies at the theater wound up with a tie!  I don’t ever remember that happening. People, you know my life is in need of a change when I get excited over a tie.

 27% of you enjoy seeing movies at a theater, and another 27% would enjoy it more often if it didn’t cost quite so much money.  Seriously, I think ticket prices, at least in my neck of the woods, are a little out of hand.  20% only like to shell out the dough to see certain types of movies, and 17% would rather wait on it to watch at home.  And that leaves 6% of you who don’t really like watching movies that much at all.

Today I’ve got an admittedly odd question, but I wanted to get a larger sample size than just my friends.  You see, I recently went out to dinner, and we planned on seeing a movie afterwards.  I had enough of my meal left over to take home, but I waffled because I don’t like to eat food that has been sitting unrefrigerated for more than a couple of hours.  One of my fellow diners thought this was ridiculous and offered to take my leftovers for themselves.  And they did.  And they claimed to have no ill aftereffects.  Allegedly.

Do polls fill you with inexplicable joy? I’ve got another one at Manolo Beauty!

Monday Teeny Poll

48% of you don’t mind baby showers, as long as you are good friends with the mother-to-be. The rest of the time, not so much. 28% are fine as long as they are not forced to play Baby Bingo and that game where you stick your hand in a bucket and try to identify as many objects in it as you can.  I hate that game.  Ahem.  16% loathe baby showers, and 8% of you prefer to share the pain at co-ed showers.  It is very telling that NOT ONE PERSON said they enjoyed going to baby showers.  I must ponder this.

So far this summer, I have seen exactly one movie in theaters.   It happened to be Bridesmaids, which I highly recommend.  But for almost everything else, I’m going to sit it out and wait for it to come to cable, or at the very least, video on demand.

Monday Teeny Poll

Last week I asked what you thought about the attempt to make circumcising infant males illegal, and a fairly overwhelming majority of 86% felt that it was an issue that should not be legislated.  Only 10% felt that it should be made illegal, and I have to admit that I side with the majority on this.  I know there is the argument that it is an unnecessary surgical procedure performed on an infant without their consent (which is sort of par for the course for infants) but it is also a religious/cultural thing for many, and I personally don’t feel comfortable stepping over that line and suddenly making an important religious ritual illegal.  Just my two cents.

Today I RSVP’d for a baby shower for someone I don’t know that well.  Her mother is a good friend of my MIL’s and she is a sweet person, I just feel a teensy bit awkward because the last time I saw them was my wedding, almost ten years ago.  However, obligations are obligations.

Monday Teeny Poll

It seems that 40% of you operate the same way that I do by buying a select few books and borrowing the rest.  I simply do not have enough room to own that many books, and I probably would not want to keep every book I read for forever, either.  But a comparitively large number of you, 36% exclusively buy your books, and kudos to you for finding a place to put them all!  16% do an equal amount of borrowing and buying, and 8% exclusively borrow.  Hey, as long as people are actually still reading books, I’m all for it.

I’ve ignored the proposed legal bans on circumcision long enough, and so today I”m going to find out your opinion.

Tuesday Teeny Poll

46% of you plan on staying with relatives for your summer vacation, and as long as you can stand each other at the end of the week, then all is good.  Unfortunately, 28% don’t know what vacation I’m referring to, and 7% are doing the staycation thang.  17% are going somewhere fantastic, aaaand we are all jealous of you.  Er, “we” meaning perhaps just me.

Yesterday at Barnes & Noble, I bought the Munchkin about fifty bucks worth of books.  I’m all for borrowing from the library, which we do a LOT, but for certain series which I know he likes, I tend to buy them for him so that he can maintain a nice personal library.  He’s a big re-reader, and I don’t ever consider buying books for him a waste of money.  His sister, on the other hand, is a gleeful destroyer of books, so right now she is dealing will all hand-me-downs and whichever books my family has been unwise enough to purchase for her.

Monday Teeny Poll

It seems that 43% of you hate housework as much as I do, but unfortunately, aren’t able to have someone come in and do it for you.  I remember when we put our home up for sale when I was six months pregnant (stupid, yes!) and for the six weeks or so it took to sell it, we had a cleaning crew come in every week because there was no way I could keep the house in good enough shape to show it.  And it was heavenly.   15% of you try not to stress out about it, 12% of you do have someone come in to clean for you, and 6% fear that “Hoarders” will be knocking on their door at any moment.  Only 3% of you actually like cleaning, and now I know why all of us get along so well!

Today I’m all about the travel plans.  Or possible lack thereof.  Some friends of ours are going on a Disney Cruise around the Mediterranean this summer, and I have to admit I’m a teensy bit jealous.
