It’s time to celebrate my doing bensbitterblog for 1 year now. Oooh let the celebrations begin. Let’s applaud me for doing something for a whole year. Especially something really hard like writing about things that irritate me and make me bitter. I should be so proud of my accomplishment. Let’s be honest. There are at least a thousand things that I have done for at least a year, so congratulations, not at all to me. Let’s just take a look at one or 10 of the thousands of things that I have done for more than a year, most of which have not recieved an anniversary celebration.
I have had 2 kids that have survived 5 years and 8 years with me and Mrs. Bitter Blog has been with me for almost 13. They are the ones that should get a celebration every year to commemerate how long they have been with me. Maybe some year I will do that.
I have been on Itunes for 11 years. I have downloaded overpriced, crappy, garbage albums just so I can get one good song. Thanks for helping me perpetuate that tradition all the way from 8 tracks to cassette tapes, to CD’s and now digitally, Itunes. Maybe I should steal music like everyone else.
I have played Gears of War since September 2011 until now. That is like a year and a half anniversary for a game that I paid $60 for. That should be rewarded with an anniversary.
I had a friend for over a year once. It was a long time ago, though and I can hardly remember what his name was or why I was friends with him(probably because we ate paste together), but kindergarten was a good year. It’s been all downhill since then.
It’s been 4 years since our company discontinued using the Red Solo cups, but not before I took a sleeve of them. It has been 4 years of using cool plastic cups instead of the yucky paper coffee cup stuff they provide now.
I have a pair of Bose over the ear headphones that have been with me for 3 years. Well, until recently. Unfortunately, they were sent to the Hip Hop City in the sky when I got my Beats by Dre headphones for Christmas. The viewing was sad, but the wake was lovely (we were there, but not really “there” as we had our nice new headphones on).
I have had a hamburger twice over a years time at a burger place near the Great Wolf Lodge. It was delicious, but not near big enough. I mean a burger should take at least two days to eat.
I have had my smart phone and haven’t broken my contract with them for over a year(I might just make it two years and complete the contract just to spite them). As a non lover of phones in general and being available by phone 24 hours a day specifically, I have probably managed to use possibly 20 minutes in the year and three months of time. Luckily smart phones have other functions like text ignoring and internet browsing on your couch when you can’t possibly get up and grab your laptop 20 feet away. Happy 1 year and three month anniversary smart phone!
I have been in a Writer’s group for over 3 years. In that time they have told me that my story didn’t make sense, it wasn’t funny, the grammar was terrible, the dialoge shotty, the descriptions nonexistant, the logic unbearable, sentence structure completely wrong and a 175 other things that I can’t remember because my memory for good writing has been numbed by their overbearing criticism. But I am there every two weeks. Because how would I perfect my craft (of bitterness) without them?
Okay that was only 9 things(right? I don’t want to go back and count). But whatever, let’s go ahead and not celebrate a year of blogging about bitterness, because something this easy should not be celebrated. I mean, do I celebrate my many years of couch sitting or TV watching or internet surfing? Yes, yes I do.
Bitter celebration all around. At least Tommy Lee Jones (my new mascot) and grump cat are so excited. Can you see it on their giddy faces? Party time.
