Loves It...Loves It Not (# 2)

Bon Don Loves It:
Peeling the paper off of the biodegradable cups at work when I'm bored... (Before & After shot *reversed*)


Bon Don Loves It Not:

When Hubby watches "American Pimp" and starts "number crunching" because we should totally be in the pimp business and get at least 5 hoes!

Bon Don Loves It:
When Hubby's at the store and I text him "Doom Gada Umm Gada" and he knows what I'm taking about and buys me juice.

video

Bon Don Loves It Not:

When people are attached to their phone and constantly texting or updating their status on Twitter & Facebook about how much fun they are having at that moment... I don't get it, because if you are having so much fun what the f*ck would posses you to stop what your doing and text?

When I'm having fun I can't even remember what I'm doing at that very second let alone stop what I'm doing to tell everyone about it.

I'm It.

I was tagged by my BBF Lana over at "The Kids Did What" to do a meme that I actually have not seen before!

I'm to come up with a list of 10 of my favorite film characters (Not favorite movies!) and why I think they are cool. Then I am to tag 5 other bloggers to do the same.

Here goes my list...




Dr. Evil
Because I have had a crush on him since FOREVER, and he was the inspiration for my blog title.



Mary in Party Girl... I love anything Parker Posey
Because when this movie was released it reminded me of myself at that time, plus Parker is my favorite actress.



Jules Winnfield in Pulp Fiction
Because he's a "Bad Motherf*cker"



Frankie from Dream for an Insomniac
Because she's annoying and very "wordy", and it's one of my favorite movies.



Regina George in Mean Girls
Because "oddly"... I can totally relate to her.



Derek Huff in Step Brothers
Because he's an asshole.



Cher in Clueless
Again one of my favorite movies see THIS POST, for my favorite quote.



Miranda Preistly in The Devil Wears Prada
Because she so cool and calm with her insults.



Etta James (Beyonce) in Cadillac Records
Because she has been my favorite singer since I was a wee little Bon Don.



Daniel Bateman #56 in The Replacements
(skip to 6:08/9:21)


Ok so now my turn to tag back, I'd like to think of it as payback!

Himbo "My Hair is Luxurious"
because no ones hair should be that luxurious!

Nickie "Learn to Fly" for tagging me

"Runaway Train" for not visiting me this weekend as planned. I hatechu for life.

"She Blogs" for ditching me in blog world for the last week & a half.

and any of you lovely folks who care to take the challenge! I can wait to read every ones responses...

Shaking, Baking & Picture Taking

So this pasted week in The OC it has been a little dramatic and temperamental.

First we had a heatwave that was just annoying. It was about 100 degrees out of nowhere for about three days. So miserable, hot and sticky. This was very inconvenient for me especially because our backyard & pool is not up to Summer standards at the moment.

It also didn't help that our neighbors rubbed it in our faces how bad we had it, they were splashing and laughing and having a grand old time in their pool while were were all stick inside our bedrooms trying to cool down with the AC blasting. Those Bastards!
Then out of nowhere this happens:
Four notable earthquakes have occurred in the Chino Hills, just north of Yorba Linda, since 4:56 p.m. today, greatly accelerating a swarm that was called 'curious' and 'unusual' last week by one of Southern California's top seismologists.
The shaking began at 4:56 p.m., with a 3.8 quake. The latest shakers came at 8:27 p.m., when a 4.0 quake occurred, followed one minute later by a 3.0 in basically the same spot. And there was a 2.5 quake at 9:04 p.m.

It's unusual for a smaller quake to be followed by a second quake slightly larger in magnitude. However, seismologists say such things happen, and it doesn't necessarily mean that a much larger event is imminent.

Yeah Yeah I know they weren't "that big" but when you're stranded in the restroom as I was at work ... not so much fun I tell ya. I came home and was telling Hubby and my Momma that I was stuck in the restroom and they both were too! Too funny!

So there you have it folks, you now have an accurate timeline of when Bon Don had to tinkle yesterday!

Now on to the picture taking, I almost forgot I had been tagged by my East Coast Daughter Nickie at Learn To Fly can you believe she wants me to take a picture of myself right at this very moment!!?? No primping or nothing!

Who would think of such a horrible thing?

Oh my goodness ok here it goes,

let me just say you're so lucky that I put on some sort of make-up today people!


Here's work Bon Don in all her glory...

Now I tag YOU!

(or whoever would like to participate, I'm not pushy)

No... Wire... Hangers!!!

So Bon Don had to get a little Joan Crawford today.
Ok well maybe not this extreme...

But I did have to lay down the law!
See I know that "the style" nowadays is form fitting skinny jeans,
I even like these clothes and think the style is very cute...
See I still know what's "cool" I'm not a total square.
However, I don't think that my teenage daughters need to be showing off the goods with tight jeans and tight blouses.
Now let me clarify...
They CAN wear either one of these articles of clothing...
just not together!


My girls have very shapely figures for being so young and often get mistaken for being older than they are, so to allow them to wear certain "styles" of clothes together is out of the question.


My rule is, if you are going to wear skinny jeans then your top better not be tight, and if your wearing a tight blouse or baby-tee then no skinnys...
you get the point.


Well this morning my daughter Cindyjo was in a hurry to get to school early and finish a project so she threw on clothes and off we went.

I noticed what she was wearing when we were in the car and I told her, "Didn't I tell you not to wear tight on tight?"

Cindyjo said "I didn't even notice,
I just grabbed clothes cause I was in a hurry. I'm sorry"
(which in her defense I did rush her and seen that she just pulled clothes off a hanger)
I told her to call her sister who was still at home and tell her to bring her a T-shirt when she got to school, she called her sister made arrangments and I thought the issue was resolved.
(This is Cindyjo)


Well I got home today and asked Cindyjo,
"Did Joshmo bring you shirt to change into today?"
CindyJo said "No she forgot to bring one"
I said "Really!"
"ok change into the clothes you wore today,
come into my room show Dad what you had on at school"
I heard her little heart skip a beat.

She came back in the room and we told her we didn't want her to
"forget" the clothing rules again,
so we were going to resolve this by eliminating the problem.
Hubby told her to get some scissors
and then take the first snips into her clothes...
We told her to change and bring back the clothes so we could finish the job, you know spilt them up the middle of the pant leg to ensure they would not try to be salvaged...
We even threw in the
"had your sister brought you a shirt, you'd still have your jeans"
(let them fight that one out)
We told her that if this ever happens again "and she forgets about our dress code" bye bye True Religion, R&R & Ed Hardy Jeans!!
ALL OF THEM!
(The jeans are hanging in the closet to "remind" her)
NO ... WIRE... HANGERS!!!
*No children were harmed during this dramatization*
She took it like a champ, we ALWAYS follow through on our threats.
She kept giggling to make sure she didn't cry, she really like those pants.
oh well.

Rewind

I've been going through my older posts tonight, I
thought I'd share an oldie with you in case you haven't read this one...

Gotta Love Those Random Drug Tests
After my story yesterday about my little "outburst"
and this next story I'm about to tell you,
you may get a bad impression from me & my Hubby...
just try not to hold it against me.*giggle*

In our defense, we are not always so... umm...
what's the word I'm looking for? ... mean?
Ok we'll go with "mean", we are not mean people but honestly
sometimes people can just annoy you to a point of no return!

So my Hubby's job requires random drug tests like most companies do,
but because of his profession he is not even allowed to have alcohol in his
system even if he works the next day.

Yes, I know pretty strict, sometimes it sucks.

Anyway yesterday Hubby gets called in to the clinic to take a drug test,
which is totally fine because Hubby obviously hasn't been drinking
and definitely doesn't have any dope in his system.

Hubby arrives at the clinic and only see’s the janitor cleaning the lobby, the janitor tells Hubby that the little nurse man is probably out back smoking a cigarette and he’ll go and get him. Hubby’s not really in a hurry at this point but thanks the janitor and off he goes.

Little nurse man comes back inside reeking of smoke looking a little annoyed that he was disturbed during his smoke break and hands Hubby a cup to piss in and says
“fill it up to this line”

Hubby had just taken a break about 15 minutes before he was notified to take his drug test so he doesn’t really have to go at this point, but he tried anyway and got close enough to the “line” he was supposed to reach.

Well now little nurse man takes the cup and has to fill up two separate vials, he's pours the first one and spills. Little nurse man seemed to be irritated because this happened. Now he's attempting to fill the second one but he doesn't have enough "liquid" to fill it.
Had he not spilled the first one he could have totally filled the second one! So what does little nurse man do? He spilled out both vials and hands Hubby a new cup and says
"Do it again!"
Hubby's starting to get a little upset with little nurse man
and tells him a thing or two about his attitude
and how it was his fault for spilling the goods.
Now Hubby has to drink his weight in water and sit there for about an hour, when finally he's ready to go. He tells little nurse man he needs a cup and little nurse mans says,
"Now "YOU'RE" going to have to wait!" all snooty.
Really little nurse man?
You dare challenge Bon Don's Hubby!
Little nurse man finally gives Hubby the cup and tells him
not to turn on the water faucet to wash his hands until
after he brings the cup back to him.
So Hubby knows
he can't knock out little nurse man for being an asshole
of course Hubby has more sense than that to jeopardize his job,
but it wouldn't be right if little nurse man felt all
high & mighty for being a little punk right!?

Now what does Hubby do?

Well being awesome and vengeful like his dear wife (me) his pisses in the cup (to the line)
then proceeds to piss all over the outside of the cup all over his hand to the point where there is piss everywhere...


then walks over and places it right on little nurse man's desk
with a piss ring and piss dropping onto the desk.
Washes his hands and tells little nurse man to have a good night.

Yup that's my man!

A Text From My Sister In-Law

I need a favor...
I'm in jail!
They charged me with being the ugliest fucker in America, come down and show them that they have the wrong person!
* I need a good come back for her! Help me out guys*

Conversation Between A Husband & Wife

Hubby: Hey Wife this is your husband! *sounds very anxious*
(he really said this as his introduction)

Me: What's up "husband"? *
wondering why hubby sounds anxious*

Hubby: You know those rechargeable batteries I bought you this weekend? I bought two packs one with the charger and the other pack of four!

Me: Yes I remember...
Hubby: Well where is the four pack?
Me: It's in my purse...

Hubby: Where's your purse?


Me: Here at work with me...


Hubby: Why do you have you purse at work with you?
I need batteries for my guitar, I want to play my game!

Me: Seriously, that's what this urgency is all about?

You need batteries for your game?

... Just use the ones I have charging for my camera!

Hubby: I am!
... I just needed to replace them with those before you got home!



yes my friends that's all I got today, my brain hurts...
I haven't eaten today and it's all Himbo's fault

Super Freak

Q: So what happens when you're shopping at the mall with Bon Don?

A: She drags you into one of these things ...

video

I tired to keep a straight face...

***This is a booth like looks like a photo-booth in the mall, it has a green screen behind where you sit and you lean your head forward over another green cut out for your head, you pick your song do your thing then done... a CD with you singing your song pops out instead of a picture!***

Quick Money Question For You

The other day I was out running some errands,
as I was getting out of the car I noticed a dollar bill on the floor!

A DOLLAR BILL!!


I was so shocked, seriously!
I'm sure you're thinking, "really? a dollar and she was shocked"
but you have to realize I've never found money before.

Is that odd?

I mean sure... I've been around people who find money all the time,
Hubby finds money, my Momma finds money ALL the time...
but I never do.

Wait!!! I find coins... does that count?

Hubby said I never find money because
I never look "around" or down at the floor.

It's true I don't.

I remember once when I was a tiny little Bon Don, I seen this man drop his wallet at the Supermarket. I picked it up (fully loaded with cash by the way) and followed him saying "Excuse me Sir" about 5 times before he turned around, I handed him his wallet and said "You dropped this back there" he snatched it from my hand, shoved it in his pocket and walked away.

No "Thank You" or "Wow kid good job!"
BASTARD!
Anyway that is the extent of my money finding days.

So as I was excitedly tell Hubby about my fabulous news and how I was a dollar richer, I asked him what was the most money he's ever found?
He said a Fifty Dollar Bill!
$50!
I would love to find a fifty dollar bill,
but I will be happy with my dollar fortune!

So my question for you is...
What was the most money you've ever found?

... NOT STOLEN people!!
But found!

My “Conviction” (Bon Don's Gotta a Girl Crush)

It all started while watching the MMA fight this weekend,
Hubby wanted to see the Shamrock vs. Diaz fight.
(Sidenote: My brother does MMA stuff, he's a black belt, submissions, kick boxing etc. ...yes he's bad ass, we are related after all *wink wink*)


Hubby was telling me how Diaz reminds him of my brother when I noticed the camera man kept cutting to this really pretty girl...
Hubby said "Oooo look babe, that bitch is bad!"
I said "oh yeah... she's really pretty!"
Hubby said, "Not only that but she's undefeated, she's a MMA fighter too!"
I said "What!? she doesn't even look all manly!"

I jumped on my laptop and Googled her...

Meet Gina Carano...
Quick Bio: Gina Carano is an EliteXC women’s MMA cage fighter and a Muay Thai specialist who got her start fighting out of the famed Master Toddy Gym in Las Vegas, NV which led to a role in the reality series "Fight Girls". Gina is also on NBC’s American Gladiators as “Crush.” Carano has competed multiple times internationally, garnishing a 12-1-1 professional Muay Thai record. Carano’s striking skills have so far surpassed every MMA fighter she has faced and is now training under Randy Couture at Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas where she’s growing increasingly adept in the submission/ground game with improving her takedown defense.
A pretty girl who can whip your ass!
Tell me that's not f*cken hot!

Tell me having a battle wound isn't super f*cken cool!

All this talk about MMA fighting and girl power gets me all pumped up... it makes me want to go out and punch a baby! WOOO


Anyway back to my point...
so it's official, Bon Don has a girl crush.

And she can whip some serious ass!
Don't you just love her!?

Weekend Recap

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
My weekend was just lovely…

Friday Himbo picked me up from work and we headed to my house for some quality time…

We had dinner, then a caffeine fix from Starbucks and proceeded to take over Hubby’s TV for a movie marathon night and some good old fashion cuddling & spooning started with my two favorites guys…we had been Himboless for too long!
(I finally had to wedge myself between Himbo & BDC, those two love to cuddle!)

Saturday I ended up ditching my family Kickball/BBQ event, and instead Hubby & I hung out with our girls all day went out for lunch and did some shopping, we got home in time to see the MMA Fight between Shamrock & Diaz (more on that later) then headed out for dinner and a little (sober) Karaoke, the night ended early.

Yesterday my brother and his new girlfriend had a BBQ with a few of their friends, it was yummy.

We all retreated to our rooms and ignored each other for some video games!

Hubby was playing Xbox online, the girls were playing PS3 Rock Band and I chose to stay in comfy clothes all day glued to my DS playing Rhythm Heaven... just like Beyonce

See!

I love being lazy!

Missing My Betch

He's MIA again... and this time he's not at Casa Bon Don.

and I'm going through withdrawls.
He's the Jack to my Karen and I miss him.

Are You Ready For Some Kickball

This weekend we are getting together with my family for
"Easter Saturday" and I'm stoked!

I have lots of younger cousins (actually my cousins children) and they are all super fun & crazy... during the summer they all come over to our house and go swimming or Hubby and the girls fill up about a million water balloons and we all just go nuts! Fun times

We usually get together for a BBQ at the park with the traditional Easter Egg hunt for the kids and sometimes a game of baseball with the whole family, well this year I suggested we play Kickball instead of Baseball...
YAY Kickball!
I figured if we play Kickball the smaller kids could get in on the action too. I told Hubby about my plans and he was all about it.
Hubby started reminiscing about his professional Kickball days back in elementary school and started quizzing me as to what the terminology was for some of the plays.

I couldn't remember because well I can't even remember what the hell I did last week let alone remember rules from a game I played a billion years ago, Honestly! who remembers "Baby Bouncies" or "Pop Flies"?
Do you remember any Kickball terminology or rules?
I'm off to go buy a big red ball!

Pimpin'

I was going through old pictures when I stumbled across this one...

One of my bright ideas for Halloween... or was it last weekend dressed up for no reason? Oh well I can't remember, but this is the kind of shit my Hubby has to deal with being married to me...
Why does this man put up with me?

Calling All My BBF's!

So March 14th was my "One Year Blog-versary"
and yesterday was my "200th Post".

I wasn't going to make "a big deal" about either one
(because I already did for my 100th)
but my BFF Himbo said I should.
Any advice Himbo gives me whether
good or frightening I will usually humor.

So I got to thinking and figured "screw it, I WILL!" ...
So here I am making a big deal about me!


"Wow 200th ... Wooo... 1 year... Wooo, alright!"


Ok, I'm done making a big deal about me now.


But while I'm at it I would like to make a big deal about some of you, my BBF's

(I totally need to patent that by the way)

No, no don't try to stop me...


Stop being so modest.


Are you blushing? Aww how cute are you!?

I must say alot of you are pretty awesome!


I'll admit I have my favorites...
well everyone I follow is a favorite,
but there are a few of you that I feel like we could totally be
real life friends who "do lunch" or "go out for drinks"
or even "braid each other's hair"
just from reading your stories everyday.
(wow that was kind of creepy!)

The other day I cleaned up my blogroll and who I follow. There has been a few people who have "broken up with me" for dropping them but I felt like, if you are really one of my BBF's you would be more verbal or at least drop a few Hello's here & there, right?
If you were offended during my "blog cleansing" I am truly sorry,
if I somehow made a mistake let me know.
Now back to the point...
I have created a Blog Award for you my lovely BBF's (blogger best friends)
That's right just for you!
and guess what...
you don't have to come up with 30 random things about yourself,
or forward this to 57 people (unless of course you want to)
WAIT that might be fun!

A good old fashion link back to my blog will suffice
But don't get me wrong,
I won't mind if you brag about how awesome a BBF I am
and how you'd be lost with out me in blogworld
and how my eyes sparkle and how the sun ...
umm ok I went too far!

Ok so without any further adieu ...

but if not I will be ok with her rigging it in my favor!

Right now I'm watching Ratatouille. Have I told you I can watch Ratatouille and Enchanted every time they come on TV? Don't get me wrong, I love all Disney movies I could watch any of them at any time but right now these are my two faves!

Long story short, Cindyjo not only grocery shopped on her own (with her own list) she came home cooked Lasagna (from scratch) with a side of Garlic Texas Toast and made a yummy dinner salad all before I got home from work. Joshmo baked me chocolate cupcakes AND all the household chores were done extra nice!

Right now giggles consumed me while thinking about all the inside jokes that I share with my friends and how simple words like "wires" or "berries" crack me up! I'm so excited to ditch work this Friday just to have lunch with my "Island Sista"

Right now I just had the urge to say

"Go to bed Bon Don, you shan't be late to work tomorrow"...

Right now, I realized how dirty "shan't" sounds

and felt happy for being such a dirtbag.
