The Life of Bon: The perfect cure for a no good rotten very bad day

The perfect cure for a no good rotten very bad day

Today was a BAD day!

BAD, you hear me?

My patience was short.  My mouth was quick.  My head was pounding.

When one student asked what he had to have in his portfolio, I about busted a cap, screaming at him to look at the board because it's been up there all year for crying out loud doesn't he have a clue in the world?!?!?  Even my favorite students were a-getting on my last nerve.  "Chris, shut your trap, why do you always think you can talk over me?" I burst out at my favorite redhead.  And you know I usually love those redheads.

I about dang near strangled my car pool buddy on the way home from school today when he brought up the gay marriage issue again.  We got in a heated debate about it last week, and so I've avoided the topic since then.  I prefer not to talk about it as we are both set in what we believe.  (My thoughts on gay marriage here)  Apparently the feelings aren't mutual cuz he wanted to talk.  Listen buddy, if I've got to be stuck in a car with you for an hour let's talk about flowers or rainbows or even math or grammar for all I care but NOT gay marriage because I need some peace and quiet after what those 17 year olds have put me through for the past eight hours so shut yer yapper!  (Run-on sentence award goes to.... ME!  Thank you, this is truly an honor.)

Oh heavens to Betsy, will I make it to June 1?!?!?

Lucky for me, I plan to spend my afternoon and evening taking a nap, snuggling with Hubs, watching the Bachelorette with my girlfriends, and reading a book until I fall asleep.  Think it'll cheer me up?  Because I tell you, I've got a SERIOUS case of the grumps!

Oh yah- there's one more thing that might- just might- cure this temporary fit of absolute grouchiness.
Elissa is giving away a beautiful print on my blog.  She's a ridiculously talented illustrator and nothing makes your day as awesome as winning something, am I right or am I right?




You can win the print of your choice during the giveaway.  I have the "All you need is love" print hanging in my living room.  It reminds me to loosen up every once in awhile.  And I'm madly in love with the Beatles, so that helps.  Whatever your style is, Elissa will have a print for you.  (How cute is the "I believe in Pink" for a little girl's nursery?)  The winner will get a print up to $25 bucks worth.

The rest of you losers are still in luck.  Wow, that came off so abrasive.  What I mean is those of you who don't win the giveaway.  You understand me, right?!?  Anyway... like we would leave you out in the dark on this one; you know we're gonna hook you up!  You can apply the code TAKE15 to your checkout at her shop and Voila! you've got yourself fifteen percent off.  Man, I really am awesome, aren't I?!?!

Now... for my second way to make this day a little better.  My birthday is coming up in June and to celebrate I am giving away limited  (very limited) sponsorships on the blog at half price.  Half price my friends!  That means 5 bones for a guest post and 200 x 250 ad, and 2 bones for a 200 x 200 ad.  WOWZERS!  Those spots are going to go quick so email me asap at lifeofbon@gmail.com to reserve your spot.  Check out this page for stats and more info.

And now, if you don't mind...  I'm outta here.  Here's hoping your day gets better.  Or was it my day that was sucky?  Whatever.  I can't remember at this point.  Time for chocolate peanut butter ice cream.

Peace.
