Random poll Tuesday - back from hiatus — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

Random poll Tuesday - back from hiatus

1) What's your most favorite television show ever?

2) What color are the walls of your bedroom? What color or pattern is your comforter/duvet/bed?

3) Would you prefer a blood draw or eyedrops?

4) What is your shoe size? Are you happy with that size? What size do you wish you were?

5) What's your go-to "I would totally get out of my seat to dance to this" wedding/party song? Bonus points for a youtube link with said song.

6) Your boss wants you to dress up in historical clothing that represents the history of your profession for a 3 hour stint at a local job fair. You will be comped by adding to your vacation time. They said they'd get the costume from a local theater group for you. When you get the costume it smells mostly like armpits and a little bit like mothballs. Do you do the stint?

  • 1) What's your most favorite television show ever?

    I love lucy

    A beige called beach house, bedspread is cream, blue, white

    3) Would you prefer a blood draw or eyedrops?

    Eh, either. IVF made me immune to blood draws, eye drops are probably more annoying

    I'm a 9 not pregnant, I wish I were an 8 because its hard to find my size.

    5) What's your go-to "I would totally get out of my seat to dance to this" wedding/party song? Bonus points for a youtube link with said song.

    Apache gang!

    1) What's your most favorite television show ever? Sex in the City

    2) What color are the walls of your bedroom? What color or pattern is your comforter/duvet/bed? Purple wall with a gray/silver quilt for the summer.

    3) Would you prefer a blood draw or eyedrops? Eyedrops...I only have one good arm for draws and it feels used and abused after IVF.

    4) What is your shoe size? Are you happy with that size? What size do you wish you were? 7.5...it's an ok size. I wish it wasn't such a popular size because it's hard to find nice shoes on sale.

    5) What's your go-to "I would totally get out of my seat to dance to this" wedding/party song? Bonus points for a youtube link with said song. Violent Femmes Blister in the Sun

    6) Your boss wants you to dress up in historical clothing that represents the history of your profession for a 3 hour stint at a local job fair. You will be comped by adding to your vacation time. They said they'd get the costume from a local theater group for you. When you get the costume it smells mostly like armpits and a little bit like mothballs. Do you do the stint? I'd pass. With the exception of this year, it's hard for me to use all my vacation each year.

  • 1. That is a hard one. I love a lot of shows. I loved a lot of the drama shows like Monk and Caslte. I also love a lot of the oldies too. 90210 and Felicity were great too. 

    2. My walls are white and my blanket is aqua. I love anything beach. 

    3. I wear contacts too, but i would take blood any day. I do not like drops in my eye. 

    4. i foot grew with each pregnancy so now I am 8.5 and a wide. I wish I was not a wide. 

    5. I am pretty common and love Dancing queen and I will survive. I used to listen to them in College a lot so they bring a lot of memories. 

    6. I would not do it. 

    This was fun thanks

  • 1) What's your most favorite television show ever?
    Friends!

    2) What color are the walls of your bedroom? What color or pattern is your comforter/duvet/bed?
    Light beige (we rent, so we had nothing to do with it), duvet is a light brown/beige paisley pattern.

    3) Would you prefer a blood draw or eyedrops?
    Blood draw, I'm used to getting them almost daily after IF treatments!

    4) What is your shoe size? Are you happy with that size? What size do you wish you were?
    7.5 to 8; my left foot is one size larger than my right, which makes shoe shopping a real frustration. I wish they were the same size.

    5) What's your go-to "I would totally get out of my seat to dance to this" wedding/party song? Bonus points for a youtube link with said song.
    Dancing Queen by ABBA. When I was a teen I was obsessed with ABBA; now whenever that song comes on my family grabs me and drags me to the dance floor. :-) I will be forever associated with that song to them.

    6) Your boss wants you to dress up in historical clothing that represents the history of your profession for a 3 hour stint at a local job fair. You will be comped by adding to your vacation time. They said they'd get the costume from a local theater group for you. When you get the costume it smells mostly like armpits and a little bit like mothballs. Do you do the stint?
    Well, I'm an editor, so it would be interesting to see what costume they would find for that! It depends on how much vacation time I got. I wouldn't do it for less than 2 days.

  • 1) What's your most favorite television show ever?
    Twin Peaks

    2) What color are the walls of your bedroom? What color or pattern is your comforter/duvet/bed? White walls - right now we have a deep/light cream red floral thing (looks vintage-ish) that's reversible with cream/red flowers on the other side.

    3) Would you prefer a blood draw or eyedrops? Hmmm. Eye drops I think but it makes me tear up just thinking about them.

    4) What is your shoe size? Are you happy with that size? What size do you wish you were?
    I'm a 10. I like that size now but as a 12 year old it was really rough, they've come along way with having cool shoes that are bigger. Maybe being a 9 or 9.5 would be nice, a lot of Euro shoes are too tight at their highest size.

    5) What's your go-to "I would totally get out of my seat to dance to this" wedding/party song? Bonus points for a youtube link with said song.

    Dolly Parton's - 9 to 5 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LwDMFOLIHxU

    I feel 50/50 about it but I'd probably do it - after some airing out, some febreeze and some bravado.
