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

In case you missed the Fresh Press.

Have a seat.  You’ve been in a coma.  You don’t remember that this is your favorite blog to trash.

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, just so you could wait three more, without a wifi password or a TV that you couldn’t see from space.  The football game you were watching was the Raiders, who, come on really the Raiders? Finally you were able to stop small talking to your relative of a relative that had relatively nothing in common with you, and you took your first bite of turkey, officially making it Christmas and now, you wake up on Monday morning to an alarm that is telling you have to go to work. (First clue that you just woke up from a coma? Your alarm is talking to you.)  In that time, several things have happened.  You missed some riots, some more small talk from relatives and some blog posts from your least favorite blog. (That’s mine since your memory is shot.)

So, what did you miss?

Some posts: I started a toy company.  Don’t get too worried.  I named it Bitter Dreams Toy Company and it is totally not going bankrupt because of your lack of orders.  Thanks very little everyone who didn’t buy anything.

On Thursday, (the day you went into a coma) I wrote about an especially bitter day for Tum’s (with the exception of a few lucky ones).  They looked forward with anticipation to that day and being let down was especially bitter.

Then on Friday, I did my typically lazy and boring photos with captions and something bitter about each in Thanksgiving Friday Pictures Bitterness.

Hopefully waking up from your coma will help you forget most of you good life and you can learn to focus on the bitterness, like me.

  5. I like bitter because than I don’t feel like such an ass for being bitter. You hit all the nails on their subsequent heads. I had thanksgiving just down the street with people I adore and laughed my ass off. BUT. Then drove the next day 5 hours somewhere I detest to sit in a hoarder’s house on a couch I’m quite sure is infested with mice. Stepped in a hairball. Left reeking of cig smoke and despair. Ahhh, family. If you can’t laugh about it…..drink a lot of wine.


    • My cousins are weird too, being all magically talented at playing instruments and being all talented by the time they can breathe. Don’t they know they are supposed to be untalented like the rest of our family?
