Monday suck-day, take 6!!

Monday, September 22, 2008

So here's why my Monday sucks so far. I woke up 3 times in the middle of the night to pee. Three, times. Twice with leg/hip cramps, and once with baby-making cramps. And if a bad nights sleep wasn't enough, when I got up for good (to Eleanore calling for her Daddy, never Mommy), I was given the gift a Monday morning headache. The second I stood up out of bed, there it was, and here it will probably stay. Le suck. Lets do a giveaway, shall we?

Amuse to the rescue! My previously scheduled suck-day sponsor is MIA, which means I had to haul ass to the etsy forums and find a replacement before I had time to get distracted by anything else. I can't leave my suck-day'ers hanging! So there I am, with my pounding headache and my sleepy eyes, begging for someone to throw me a bone. But I got wayyy better than a bone! I got this Spark Sketchbook so kindly donated to all of YOU, by etsy user Amuse. Amuse's shop is full of shirts, postcards, ACEOs, and a bowl of fortune cookies? Oh wait, no, that's a postcard, hehe. So you want to know how to enter huh? Mondays suck...

New Rules: I've recently decided to tweak the rules a little bit. If you'd like to win that fabulous sketchbook (and who wouldn't?), here's what you've gotta do.

1. Go into Amuse's shop, the door is wide open and you're all welcome.
2. Browse until you've memorized the listing title of every item that you adore.
3. Come back here and leave us a comment telling us what you're favorite item was, AND (now here's the kicker) why you hate Mondays. Misery loves company.
4. If you do not have a blogger account, make sure that you leave a name and email address, or some way to contact you in case you win!
5. Contest closes Thursday morning at 11:00 am central time.

My favorite item? Probably this...
The Jellyfish Love shirt. But, not because I love Jellyfish. I'm actually really afraid of them. When I was a kid, 3 or 4 years old, I took a trip to the beach with my family. I remember large (or maybe I was just small) Jellyfish laying all over the beach. Somebody put me under the impression that if I got too close, they would jump up, chase me, and attack me. So to this day, I picture them sprouting large strong legs, and running me out of town.

Suck on!

Those are my favorite... I love the simplicity.

I can't say I really hate Mondays. I don't really hate anything when you get right down too it. Maybe I am saddened that everyone dislikes their jobs so much that they feel Mondays suck because they have to go back......

I LURVE AMUSE THOUGH! YAY! Her fluffy boobs make me happy... Er... Their, not her.

Nora September 22, 2008 at 9:28 AM  

I love this shirt in her shop:

And Mondays suck because even though I get to work from home, I am always so SLOW getting started.


Maggie September 22, 2008 at 9:30 AM  

I love the prize sketchbook best, but if I have to pick another fave I would say the bird series ACEOs- Hullo, bonjour and ciao. Can't wait to see the full size prints they are promising!

I hate Mondays because I have a killer headache too.

Jennifer September 22, 2008 at 9:43 AM  

I love the live post card. That's awesome!

My Monday sucks because I dropped a tiny spool of thread in my closet and I needed it to get started on a project today. I had to empty the whole thing out and then put it all back :0(

Annie Rexic September 22, 2008 at 9:45 AM  

definitely the chairs shirt.

totally my favorite.

i hate monday cause its the beginning of a very long, busy, tiring school week where i dont get to do anything fun.

Auntie Dis September 22, 2008 at 10:00 AM  

I like the bee shirt!

I don't really hate Mondays means my kids go back to school after two days of terrorizing me. Although getting out of bed on a Monday morning DOES suck.

HotHeaded September 22, 2008 at 11:46 AM  

I adore this shirt:

Oh mondays almost always suck! But this one was sucky because

A. lil mister decided to eat every 2 hrs last night. And 5 am was the perfect time to get up for the day!

B. It was way too stuffy and hot in our bedroom to sleep good last night.


3.My knee is still killing me from when I fell last week and was aching all through the night.

So to summerize I'm grouchy today so its gonna make everyones day suck today!:)

kcroteau September 22, 2008 at 12:00 PM

this one! this one!

i lurves amuse. well, the boston half of amuse anyway. ;)

jessicajane September 22, 2008 at 12:03 PM  

My favorite thing in amuse's shop is SOLD!! BUT! I actually own it! I lurv it. Unfortunately it is in Ohio, in my MIL's garage, in a storage bin, because the Army decided to be blanks and give us the run around when we tried to get our stuff shipped to us. I can't wait to be on a marine base, I am pretty sure they will ship our stuff within hours (okay maybe days).

Love the sketchbook, I only have like 5, so whats another one? Plus this one has a sweet cover!

Oh yeah, and why I hate Mondays....Cause its the beginning of the "work" week and Tim leaves me all alone all day...well, maybe thats a good thing.

kim* September 22, 2008 at 12:06 PM  

i think im late but i still want to wrtie.

i like the journal

i hate mondays because most people have to go to work somewhere theyd rather not be at...all for survive.

Brandon September 22, 2008 at 12:23 PM  

Jelly fish love t-shirt is pretty cool, I also like

Tis hard to get out of bed on Monday morings and get kid and lunches ready on time. hope you head fells better!

CurlyfrySC's Collage September 22, 2008 at 3:21 PM  

I like the Live - postcard because who doesn't need a little luck on a Monday?

And THIS Monday is sucky because I have a sore throat and my body aches from playing horseshoes with my family over the weekend!

Crystal September 22, 2008 at 4:12 PM

These are my favorite. Peacock feathers on in or around anything make me happy. (Remember that.)

This may be the worst Monday on record... On the 110 freeway this morning, realized I had NO BRAKES. Made it (carefully) to the repair shop. Whole system is shot... new cylinders, etc. $650 Yeeeahhh.

Trouble is, if we didn't have mondays, TUESDAY would suck.

RainbowMom September 22, 2008 at 4:38 PM  

I really love To Each Their Own t-shirt and in all honesty.. the beautiful sketch book.

I hate mondays (at least this Monday) because I too woke up with a headache and it's not Sunday and Sunday was a really nice day for us. AND! Because I'm all out of honey for my tea. :(

fly tie September 22, 2008 at 5:46 PM  

lmao at the running jellyfish. i can just picture it.

ThreadBeaur September 22, 2008 at 7:00 PM  

Rainy Summer Women's size I love this one with the little boat! IT is too cute. Mondays are bad, because it seems like the longest day of the week!!!!

melroska September 22, 2008 at 7:48 PM  

ooh, amuse is so awesome. i like the chair plane, and also the Inside postcard.

I really hate mondays. i guess it's mostly because they ruin my sundays because on sunday all i can think about is how sad i am that i have to go to work the next day. stupid mondays.

Hybrid Hopes September 22, 2008 at 11:37 PM  

This reserved listing is probably my favorite reserve listing ever. "This is reserved for Joe. If you are not Joe please don't buy. You will be sent fire instead of shirts. See...the photo is of fire not shirts...." I kind of want a box of fire now.

favorite real item, anatomic heart cards with feather-like fronds.

Hybrid Hopes September 22, 2008 at 11:39 PM  

oh yeah, and mondays suck because it's my last day off. i can't say i hate every monday ever though.

Christopher And Tia September 23, 2008 at 8:22 AM  

Shannon Ripp is a silly girl and posted her entry on the wrong thread. I'll just fix that for you lady. *copy... paste*
hmmm.... i'm thinking Hullo birds ACEO is my favorite. I could do a room on that picture!

my second favorite is the book up for the giveaway - so yay for the winner! haha...

"why i hate mondays..." because it's the very first day after a weekend that just flies by. it's back to craziness - fitting a shower in between breakfast and nighttime, calling the (fill-in machine) repair man after your "girl talk catch up minute" with your sister. it's just back to the craziness - without daddy's back-up!!

***i hope that i'm posting this in the right spot. i feel like i've posted somewhere different everytime! haha... maybe cause it's monday!

wabisabinaturals September 23, 2008 at 7:29 PM  

My fav is the Coffee Love t-shirt.

Monday sucks because all my favorite people are off to work and school.

Ashley September 23, 2008 at 10:29 PM  

I like the Ciao Birds ACEO.

I hate Mondays because it means going back to work.

Space Oddities September 24, 2008 at 7:49 AM  

i love amuse! such a great shop. this aceo is fab:

i hate mondays and well, every day that i work outside of my house because it means less time with my kids.

ikkinlala September 24, 2008 at 7:08 PM  

May Canadians enter?

I love the Women's Chairs t-shirt, and I hate Mondays because I have an early class on Mondays that I don't like to get up for.

Punky N Munky September 24, 2008 at 9:22 PM  

I like this chairs tshirt
I'm not even sure why, it just appeals to me! Thanks for introducing me to that shop!

I hate Mondays because it's the start of another long week of scheduled activities and stuff to do. I'm so not a schedule person!

If I am lucky enough to be chosen, you can contact me at my blog or my etsy shop

Thank you!!

~Kat's Life~ September 25, 2008 at 6:16 AM  

I love this!!

And I hate mondays!! I always have to wake up super early get the kids ready for school and my self ready and its such a bummer that the weekend ended and its back to getting up at the butt crack of dawn!! UGH

Krystan September 25, 2008 at 9:29 AM

I like this because chameleons are freakin' amazing, as the title says.

I hate Mondays because they're not Fridays or Saturdays, which means I can't go out drinking that night. Therefore, it sucks.

kristin,  September 25, 2008 at 9:48 AM  

I love the rainy summer shirt..because well, I live in Washington and it was a rainy summer and we have a little sailboat too and I felt like that several times this summer..and Monday's well, it always comes too fast..I need mondays' to be my weekend recovery day. Not my jump on the moving train day. Kristin Carman

Megan September 25, 2008 at 10:00 AM  

I'm a card fanatic:

Love amuse's graphics on shirts so I'm oh so happy so see them on cards, too!

Monday's suck because there's 5 more days before the weekend rolls around again!

Christopher And Tia September 25, 2008 at 10:58 AM  

Thanks everyone for participating! The contest is now closed. Make sure to come back next week for another suck-day giveaway :)

xx Tia
