I had SO much fun with this week’s survey. Thank you to all that participated. Ready for the breakdown? Here we go.
1. How many pairs of blue jeans do you own?
First of all, have I told you today that your butt looks great? Someone told me that yesterday and it was nice to hear so I thought I should tell YOU. Seriously. Nice ass. Blue jeans- you either live in one or two pair or you live in a closet full of them.
6.3% of you own one pair of jeans
13.75% of you have two pairs of jeans
40.5% of you own less than five pairs
39.3% of you fashionistas have more than five pairs of jeans to strut in.
2. What kind of milk do you drink?
I really had no idea that there was so much diversity when it came to milk. I mean obviously I knew there were options, but people are pretty passionate about milk. Here is the breakdown for my readers:
6.9% of you are chugging whole milk (nice mustache!)
21.6% of you are 2% gals
20.15% prefer 1%
22.05% like to see non-fat or skim on the jug
4.15% are digging soy
3.95% are nutty for almond milk
3.65% drink lactose free milk
The REST of you wanted to tell me all about rice milk or the milk in the “blue cardboard carton” or “OMG! YUK! MILK! EW!!!”
3. What is your favorite color?
Blue was just barely the favorite of the colors listed but purple was chomping at her heels. In third place was green. Red, pink and orange got a bit of love as well.
The write-in votes were for rich colors like plum or cranberry. Bonus points goes to whoever said plaid was their favorite color, the person that said “whatever color my wine is”, and for those that could not pick green because it might hurt purple’s feelings? Don’t worry- there were SEVEN of you that expressed similar angst.
4. Have you ever been to California?
75.7% of you have been to California , 24.3% of you have not
5. Have you ever been to New York?
79.4% of you have been to NY, 20.6% have not
6. Are you allergic to anything?
62.35% are allergic to something
28% of you lucky ducks are not
People that shared their allergies were mostly of the pet and food variety
7. Who is your favorite Muppet?
I know this was hard for some of you. Even though this was not my answer I am actually pleased that the top Muppet, as voted by you guys, was none other than Kermit The Frog. That seems very right.
Cookie Monster and Oscar the Grouch were the next favs. Everyone else was pretty evenly ranked. Every Muppet got at least one vote – that was very nice.
The write-in Muppets answers were: Several votes for Prairie Dawn, The two dudes in the balcony, Telly and a big group of you are Scooter fans.
8. Is there a book that you read every year?
54.5% of us have a book that we like to read every year
45% do not
