Weather or Not Bitter Friday Giftures

  For some reason, Al Roker seems to be getting more attention this year. Yeah, his glasses are weird colors and he is extremely short compared to his co-workers, but that doesn't seem to be it. It's because he is a meteorologist on the Today show and well, the weather has been a little wackadoodle … Continue reading Weather or Not Bitter Friday Giftures

Best Time of the Year Bitter Friday Giftures

  This week is my favorite of the year. Many people love December and all its holidays. Others love Thanksgiving and the chance to eat lots of food, shop and be with family. Others love Valentine's Day (just kidding, no one loves Valentine's Day, ironically). Some love the summertime for sun, sand, good weather and … Continue reading Best Time of the Year Bitter Friday Giftures

Bitter Road Trip Friday Giftures

  There is something about driving across the country in a 26 foot Uhaul trailer that makes you understand why truckers only like to stop at truck stops and not little gas stations. When your trailer doesn't turn on a dime like your car, you kind of have to rethink how to drive things. Also, … Continue reading Bitter Road Trip Friday Giftures

Snapping the Bitterverse Friday Giftures

As we all know Thanos snapped half the universe in Avengers Infinity War. It was a bad time in the universe what with half the people dying, but he didn't realize all the other things he snapped. He didn't realize that he also snapped my sanity as well. I probably thought things were fine last … Continue reading Snapping the Bitterverse Friday Giftures

Cancellation Bitter Friday Giftures

  Baseball is kind of a weird sport. The majors actually start in late March, which is technically spring, in some places, but in places like Chicago, and Minnesota and Milwaukee (which all have major league teams) not so much every year. Baseball depends on not having weather issues. Well, in the little leagues, where … Continue reading Cancellation Bitter Friday Giftures

Job Store Bitterness

  I grew up in South Dakota, which is basically a black hole for anything cool, including me. I blame the fact that I am the world's leastest cool person on growing up there. Man, did we struggle to come up with entertaining things to do for fun. We got tired of tipping all the … Continue reading Job Store Bitterness

Baseball Bitter Friday Giftures

  When I was growing up, baseball was my favorite sport...until I got hit in the gut with a fastball and had a fear of a little tiny ball going 60-100 miles an hour speeding right at me. I also realized that baseball was a lot of just standing around watching a pitcher throw to … Continue reading Baseball Bitter Friday Giftures

Are you a Bozo Bitterness

When I was younger and really bored I used to watch WGN in Chicago. In the mornings, they had this show that included Bozo the Clown and he would have kids on the show. They had this game that challenged kids to throw ping pongs into big buckets and the farther they went, the better … Continue reading Are you a Bozo Bitterness

Cloning Dogs Bitter Friday Giftures

  My wife just popped in and told me that people have way too much money. Obviously, I agreed and told her that we were on the opposite end of the scale, IE, we have way too little. I then asked her why she said that, and she said that some family paid $50,000 to … Continue reading Cloning Dogs Bitter Friday Giftures

April Foolish Bitter Friday Giftures

  If you guys have followed the blog for a while, you probably know that I have always done an April Fools joke every year. Some fairly good, other's awful and this year, well, it wasn't very good, but apparently most of you fell for it anyways. I did not ever get a tweet from … Continue reading April Foolish Bitter Friday Giftures

Dwight Shrute Bitterness

As you all should know, I am a huge fan of The Office. Ever since I saw the episode where the people of Dunder Mifflin Scranton go to the lake for the Beach Games while Michael sneakily tries to pick his replacement, I was hooked. My favorite part was when Dwight picks his team and … Continue reading Dwight Shrute Bitterness

Rubik’s Cube Bitterness

I grew up in the 80's, which was a very colorful time. We moved from New York to South Dakota right as the country was transitioning from disco to MTV. Micheal Jackson was at the peak of his powers, and I was finally starting to become a human (I don't remember much before I was … Continue reading Rubik’s Cube Bitterness

Can I play your phone Bitter Friday Giftures

  My son is 11 and he already makes me think that he will work for the United Nations someday. He is always negotiating high powered contracts and he is relentless. For instance, we recently lost Xbox Live Gold, which allows you to play games with your friend over Xbox. I decided that as much … Continue reading Can I play your phone Bitter Friday Giftures

Down into the Sink Hole

You should probably expect all my writing these days to focus on the bitterness of job hunting and how horrible it is, since it is taking all my focus. So whether I say it straight out or not, everything I am bitter about is either that or a metaphor for that. A few weeks ago, … Continue reading Down into the Sink Hole
