Wednesday Afternoon Questions!

Hi ladies!

Since no one has given us questions to answer for the day I decided to take the liberty of doing some myself just for kicks.

 

1. How would you describe your personal style?

2. What is a secret talent or skill that you have that the BT community doesn’t already know about?

3. What is the oddest job you’ve had?

4. If you could add any feature to BeautyTalk what would you add?

5. How do you like to spend your Wednesday evenings?

Whimsically yours,
Janine

Re: Wednesday Afternoon Questions!

1 - My style is defientely casual and simple - 5 wear jeans and a t-shirt pretty much everyday

 

2 - I have PI memorized to over 50 decimals.  I was really bored one day in high school lol

 

3 - I spent one winter vacation measuring the dimensions of elementary schools in my city

 

4 - hmmm, i'm not really sure on this one.  I know a lot of people mentioned getting points for hearts , but I feel like that would make people get involved in BT for the wrong reasons.

 

5 - Wendesday evenings are best spent with a glass of wine watching a good movie or surfing the web.

 

Re: Wednesday Afternoon Questions!

1.  How would you describe your personal style?

Classic.

2.  What is a secret talent or skill that you have that the BT community doesn’t already know about?

I played oboe in high school.

3.  What is the oddest job you’ve had?

I tutored students in English/Communications in college.

4.  If you could add any feature to BeautyTalk, what would you add?

What I would like to add would be considered unacceptable, so I'll go with Live Chat--that would be cool!

5.  How do you like to spend your Wednesday evenings?

Playing with the cats and watching PBS.

Re: Wednesday Afternoon Questions!

You all have some unique hidden talents!

 

1.  Casual trendy

2.  I can touch my nose with my tongue

3.  I really haven't had any odd jobs.  I worked for an amusement park answering the question "Where is the nearest restroom?" about 100 times a day.

4.  Live chat would be cool

5.  Wednesdays I get to sit down with a good book.

Re: Wednesday Afternoon Questions!

Questions! Yay! 

 

1. How would you describe your personal style?

Oh gosh, definitely all over the place. Jeans and a hoodie, a tunic-y blouse with leggings, 50's style rockabilly dresses, studded leather jackets, a secret desire to wear cute goth loli dresses ALL THE TIME, hahaha. 

 

2. What is a secret talent or skill that you have that the BT community doesn’t already know about?

Hmm, I design/make jewelry with semi-precious stones. Maybe one day I'll start up an etsy store. 

 

3. What is the oddest job you’ve had?

I guess it'd have to be cheesemonger. It's certainly not common, I don't know if it's odd. Smiley Happy


4. If you could add any feature to BeautyTalk what would you add?

I like the idea of pinning information/topics, then some questions could all go in one place instead of everyone making a board like when people were wondering about when the Ariel collection was coming out or whatever.


5. How do you like to spend your Wednesday evenings?

I have no routine at all right now, so nothing special just because it's Wednesday. Maybe a face mask and a movie later for tonight. Smiley Very Happy

 

Re: Wednesday Afternoon Questions!

i have never heard of a cheesemonger!! Definitely odd!! what is it!! 

Re: Wednesday Afternoon Questions!

Selling cheese! My shop had a few hundred cheeses we carried on a bit of a rotating basis, so I know way more about cheese than any normal person should. Smiley Tongue I got to give talks at fancy wine and cheese tastings that people paid big bucks for too!

Re: Wednesday Afternoon Questions!

Now that explains your obsession with cheese! Smiley Happy

Re: Wednesday Afternoon Questions!

Yeah, it was definitely an interest before, but that job allowed it to grow! It's a good conversation starter, haha. 

Re: Wednesday Afternoon Questions!

wow!! that's awesome!.. but odd at the same time! haha

Re: Wednesday Afternoon Questions!

1. Business casual.

2. I write and read backwards and upside pretty well, trained for a long time in school, had a lot of downtime I guess.

3. I don't think I've ever had a job I would consider odd, but I sure have met a lot of odd customers in my time.

4. A chatroom would be fun.

5. Making dinner and hanging out with my hubby. Not terribly exciting but it works from me Smiley Happy

Re: Wednesday Afternoon Questions!

Amen to the odd customers!

Re: Wednesday Afternoon Questions!

1. Hmm, my personal style is basically almost anything you find at forever 21! >.< lol i love colorful clothes (not ti-dye) But colorblocking! I dont like to wear blacks, and whites, and i actually do not own not one shirt that is the color Red nor Orange! idk why!

 

2. I can do the wave with my tongue

 

3. I babysit Tourist's kids at really expensive hotels! Although its not odd, I've had odd kids! lol but you gotta love them!

 

4. Hashtags!! lol would be much easier to find products that are talked about!

 

5. I would like to spend it maybe relaxing, and a massage would be great!!

 

 

Re: Wednesday Afternoon Questions!

Hello dear, I hope you're having a wonderful day!

 

1. How would you describe your personal style?

So comfortable... maybe a little too much! I wear vnecks and jeans on a regular basis, nothing too crazy, but I love splurging on fashion I'll never wear. Guilty. >.<

2. What is a secret talent or skill that you have that the BT community doesn’t already know about?

Hmm... I used to do recreational speed skating.
3. What is the oddest job you’ve had?

I don't think any of my jobs have been too odd yet, I'll keep you posted.
4. If you could add any feature to BeautyTalk what would you add?

Some way to not just view your activity, but also separate your questions from answers. Generally, just a more organized BeautyTalk would be wonderful.
5. How do you like to spend your Wednesday evenings?

Curled up with a good book and a face mask, middle of the week is face mask time for me!

Re: Wednesday Afternoon Questions!

1.  Personal style?  Classic with a few trends.  Chico's is my favorite store.

 

2.  Secret talent?  Besides the piano (primary instrument), I can play handbells, Irish tin whistle, and hammered dulcimer.

 

3.  Oddest job?  I stayed nights with a rich elderly woman for 2 weeks while my aunt was on vacation. 

 

4.  Feature BT should add?  I love the swatch idea. Sometimes colors just don't show well in photos.

 

5.  Like to spend Wednesday evening?  I usually work on Wednesday evenings.  I direct an adult volunteer church choir, children's choir, and handbell choir that meets on Wednesday evenings. My sweet hubby cooks on Wednesdays.  I eat, watch a little TV, BT and then it's bedtime.

Re: Wednesday Afternoon Questions!

That is a wide range of instruments! 

 

I once heard a guy play Metallica's "Nothing else matters" on the hammered dulcimer.  So awesome!

Re: Wednesday Afternoon Questions!

That I would love to hear!  It is really a beautiful instrument and fun to play.

Re: Wednesday Afternoon Questions!

1. How would you describe your personal style? In the words of Rachel Berry, "sexy schoolgirl librarian chic." with the occasional tulle thrown in! (I keep telling myself that I'm an adult and I need to stop and buy some sensible blazers...)
2. What is a secret talent or skill that you have that the BT community doesn’t already know about? I can't remember if I've ever shared this, but on the side of my academic jobs, I've taught group exercise classes for several years, so I'm a workout pro. Smiley Happy
3. What is the oddest job you’ve had? well, while I was a yoga instructor at my last university, I had to do yoga classes with the football team after their practice. 3 of us yoga instructors with 60 or so sweaty, exhausted, stubborn guys at 7 am in the winter, on the football field. It was...interesting, lol.
4. If you could add any feature to BeautyTalk what would you add? The ability to do polls! (er, we can't, right?) We could have our own mini beauty awards on here and vote for our favorite products! 
5. How do you like to spend your Wednesday evenings? Apparently, on Sephora.com. Smiley Very Happy

Re: Wednesday Afternoon Questions!

I can only imagine the moaning and complaining involved in your football yoga sessions. >.< That does not sound like a calm and relaxing situation!

Re: Wednesday Afternoon Questions!

hahaha, well, it was tough...but I learned a couple of tricks. Whenever I got annoyed with them for not trying/paying attention, I'd just throw in a really hard back-bender or something advanced. Result: groaning and swearing, but a sudden collective desire to keep up with me. Smiley Happy Or I had them to partner stretches. Their teammates working with the other yoga instructors would look over at our group and start laughing at them. Kind of mean, but oh well, got the job done. Smiley Tongue

Re: Wednesday Afternoon Questions!
