The Bitter End…of the Year

Hey there, I'm Bitter Ben's Brain.  I snuck on the blog here because well, I get bored a lot.  As you might know, Bitter Ben doesn't use me a whole lot, and I realized that he hasn't done any year end posts.  I know he never will, so I took it upon myself to do it for him … Continue reading The Bitter End…of the Year

In case you missed it…because you were playing with your shiny new toys

Lot's of people got shiny and new stuff in the last few days.  Shininess and brightness can be distracting as babies and cats know.  Even I get distracted by laser pointers.  I've been known to chase them from time to time (meaning always).  By chase I mean with my eyes.  And by lasers I mean … Continue reading In case you missed it…because you were playing with your shiny new toys

Friday Pictures – The Clever Edition

There is a long standing tradition between me and my family, acquaintances and co-workers, that I crack really lame jokes, puns, and mixed metaphors and they groan, snort or completely ignore me.  Since my plan is to live my life in complete and utter isolation, the plan is going much better than I had hoped.  Even bitter, there are … Continue reading Friday Pictures – The Clever Edition

Bitter Anticipation

It is days like this, the day after a vacation, holiday or break when I don't feel like working, moving or even breathing, or days like this that feel like a combination of the listlessness of Monday, the overwhelmingness of Tuesday, and the desperation of Thursday, that I realize why I am such a bitter time off anticipator.  Call … Continue reading Bitter Anticipation

In case you missed it…because you were entranced by a Yule Log

I hope all you completely deserving people that don't have to work Monday and Tuesday or Thursday and Friday, don't have anything bad happen to you, like a Yule log smog incident, or a sleigh slaying, a snowball fall, or a frozen hose.  That would be a tragedy if that happened.  Because you know that … Continue reading In case you missed it…because you were entranced by a Yule Log

The Bitter Crunchy vs plain debate

I thought at some point I would stop learning things because my body is pretty lazy.  I figured my mind would start retiring from learning too.  But no, my mind had to go and be all ambitious and pull up a fact that I hadn't really learned in 40 years of existing on earth.  Luckily it wasn't life changing or … Continue reading The Bitter Crunchy vs plain debate

In case you missed it…because you were out shopping

Shopping at this time of year is like entering the gladitorial arena of ancient Shoptopolis.  Avoid it at all costs.  If you want to survive take a little advice and do it the lazy way like me.  Get out your computer, log-in, and read Ben's Bitter Blog.  Oh, if you want to get shopping done, … Continue reading In case you missed it…because you were out shopping

The Bitter Ben Holiday Variety Hour and a Half Special

Remember gathering around the Tube of many colors as a family when you were a kid?  Remember those old Holiday Special Variety Shows that celebrities did on television where they would decorate a tree or have a snowball fight(I especially enjoyed when the snowball fight went just a little too far) or sat around opening presents?  All so they had the excuse to sing Holiday … Continue reading The Bitter Ben Holiday Variety Hour and a Half Special

Bittersauraus Rexstinction

If you have been to a crappy kid movie lately, then you were probably forced to see previews of even more crappy kid movies, thus perpetuating the amount of kid movies that you will see in the future.  The only way out of that cycle is to be a crappy parent like me and tell them no.  One … Continue reading Bittersauraus Rexstinction

If you missed it…you were probably in a tryptophan coma

A long time ago (a whole Thursday ago), you went to someone's house that didn't like you, and you didn't like them, but you were forced to because they insisted that you not sit at home alone blissfully playing video games or laying on the couch.  You drove three hours to get to their house, … Continue reading If you missed it…you were probably in a tryptophan coma
