Monday suck-day, take 3!

Monday, September 1, 2008

I can't say that Monday sucks all that much this time around, since a lot of us have the day off because of the holiday. But if you're one of the few that doesn't, than this Monday probably extra sucks, and you need this giveaway twice as much. Last night Christopher accidentally let the cat out while him and Eleanore were outside playing. Or, actually, when he had to bring Elie inside for a timeout, the cat slipped out, and then slipped his mind. Last night after we finished watching 10,000 BC, I noticed the cat's water was empty, which triggered a "speaking of Bomber" reaction from Christopher, followed by an hour outside with the flashlight. She usually doesn't like to be outside for more than 5 minutes, so as soon as we open the door for her, there she is, screaming for us and practically climbing into our arms. The few times that she has gotten out overnight and wandered away, shes been home by daylight. But this morning, there is no sign of her. I'm a worried Mama. Monday... you suck.

But what can you count on to be the bright side of every Monday suck-day? Our giveaway!! The rules: This week, etsy user Maggie has whipped up a few batches of her totally badass Monster guitar pick earrings, like the Frankenstein ones shown above. And the best part is, Maggie is giving a pair away, free, to YOU! So, Monday haters, grab your mouse and head on over to her shop by either clicking here, or clicking on the Frankenstein earrings way up there, and then hurry back and leave us a comment with your name, email, all that good stuff, telling us which set of Monster picks are your favorite (and thats the pair that you'll win!)! Good luck suck-day'ers! We'll pick a winner Thursday morning...

Mondays extra suck today! My husband has to work (the double time pay won't suck come payday tho!) And I got to clean house all day long! - I vote for a Stay At Home Mothers Day!!! Cause really, when do we get a day off??

Maggies shop is awesome - and I'm particularly fond of the Fleur de lis earrings!

this past weekend sucks and things will continue to suck until I finally let go of the fact of losing my wallet with everything and I do mean everything in it. AHHHH!
I think that the Spider Vine Guitar Pick Sterling Silver Earrings will be able to help pick me up alittle. I feel horrible about because Mikey's birthday money plus all of my ids, ssn, everything was in there. UGH! I am glad that Kitty Bomber was safe.

Still no sign of Kitty Bomber :(

Maggie has some seriously cool stuff in her shop - makes it hard to choose just one pair of Monster earrings...

I was thinking the black skull ones would be good (something scowly to wear on the days when I'm feeling scowly but must hide it) but I am developing a bit of a reputation for skull-themed items.

Therefore: the vampire earrings! I love the subtle red bead above the fangy gloriousness.

(I hope your cat shows up soon - very mysterious to have a homebody missing for so long!)

P.S. my email/contact info is on the landing page of my desperately-needs-to-be-updated blog....

I want the Fleur de lis ones! You better pick me mam! hahaha. I'm loving the bangs

Honestly, my favorite favorite guitar pick earrings are the radiation ones. My favorite monster ones though, that's tough, but I like the vampire ones, with the wolfman ones a close second.

try putting catfood (if you haven't already) on your porch. Yeah, other cats might come and eat it, or k.b. might eat some and run and hide again, but it increases your chances of finding her. him. it. whatevs. good luck!!!

Oh no, I hope Kitty comes back soon! When I was younger, our cat got out and was missing for four days, turns out, he got locked in the neighbor's garage by accident..maybe check garages and sheds nearby?

I love the Pink with White Flowers Guitar Pick Sterling Silver Earrings, but if I had to pick monster ones...maybe the pirates. Very neat shop maggie has!

Aww I hope you find your kitty safe and sound!

Auntie Dis September 2, 2008 at 9:15 AM

I think I like the Frankenstein's monster earrings the best as they would seem to stand out against my auburn hair. :)
