Friday Picture Busy Bitterness

For some reason this time of year seems to be busier than almost every other time of the year.  There seems to be all kinds of parties, get togethers, gatherings at malls, and tidings of bitter cheer on Facebook.  How is a guy supposed to slack off at work when more people seem to be demanding that things get to them by a certain date and more people at work seem to be taking the day/week/month off? How is a guy supposed to lay lazily on the couch when at home he is asked to buy presents, go to unnecessary parties and spend more time paying attention to people around him?  Why does everyone seem to be so busy when it is so dark out, and the weather is so cold?  Wouldn’t everyone want to start being like me and staying inside, on a couch feeling the warm glow of the television and bright lights of the internet? However if you must interact with others here are some holiday suggestions bitter blog picture gif style:

Spend time outside…

Why? It's so cold out?

Do I have to wear a coat?

Go for a nice relaxing drive:

Play Chicken

It’s not as fun without the ice.

Head to Disneyland…

Face off with your grumpiest, bitterest enemy.

Go to a family sporting event…

I got a kick out of this one.

A carnival….

Nooot quite strong enough for the top rung.

Spend some time with the kids….

Kid time!

Peek a boo!

Spread some cheer…


Cheered me right up….

Take some family pictures…

Taking some family selfies.

Family selfie time everyone!

Go to the zoo…

What an adorable penguin.

Look at the penguin…

Before you go, check to see if you left anything…

Make sure you don't forget your Ipads.

Make sure you don’t forget your Ipad.

And most of all, make sure everyone leaves with a smile on their face…

Who's holding the camera for this picture?

If you must be busy this holiday season, at least insist that you are bitter about it.  That will make it less enjoyable for all those around you.  Spread the bitterness!

  2. LOVE the videos, Ben! Totally needed the laugh!! 🙂 Why? Well, check out my latest post about, well, about my doctor kicking me to the curb…at: …no, I’M NOT KIDDING, LOL..sometimes, just being a bitch doesn’t pay off, but I’m not bitter. However, I gotta love the one of the little girl squealing on the PEEK-A-BOO video. Love it! Had the volume turned off though, thankfully, so I missed the chorus of her screams…chat with you later. My kid’s at the door, and he forgot his key AGAIN…sigh…got any bitter Kool-Aide? I might need some…


      • Sell a lot? 🙂 I haven’t even finished it yet, and once I do, it’ll be a month before it hits the bookstore shelves. Unfortunately, because of having to take on a dreaded day job, which I started on Nov. 5th, I’m really behind on my writing goals. I’ve still got to finish editing the Tales from the Lunatic Lounge, and I haven’t had time to work on a script in over of year (because of taking care of my Grandmother for 2 years BEFORE I had to go to work at Ann Taylor). However, rest assured, slowly but surely, I’m getting Lunatic Lounge finished. Either way, THANKS for asking! 🙂


  3. I’m busier than I would like to be at the moment. I am sneaking off to comment on blogs who have probably forgotten about me since I’ve all but disappeared from the blogging world since I’ve started my new job.
    Also, I would really like to know who is holding the camera in that last picture and why they’re not dead yet. Also why that guy is looking so gleeful about shooting that gun.


    • Well at least you are keeping busy at your job. It makes the time go by faster. However blogging is more important so I think it is time for you to have a talk with your boss about giving you more time to blog.
