Whether you were doing chores, overindulging on Easter candy or spending too much time watching the NBA Playoffs, cutting the grass, going grocery shopping or catching up on all your family arguments or being lazy ignoring all the things you have to do, you were busy the last two weeks. I was so busy doing nothing important that I didn’t get around to updating you on all the posts you didn’t have time to read, nor want to read. But, this blog has always been about making both you and I uncomfortable, so let’s both have some awkwardness, shall we?
My birthday came at a busy time in my vacation in Utah. I was doing a really good job of neglecting as many people as possible that day, but failed. What I didn’t fail at was coming up with 41 things to be bitter about. Read more about that crap in 41 Things to be Bitter About.
Then that Friday, all kinds of things were getting in my way, especially those so called “majestic” mountains that everyone likes to ski down, but no one likes to get trapped on. So giftures were badly needed to explain how much people were getting in my way in The Mountainous Barriers of Friday Giftures.
Last week was about the roadtrip home and how decidedly inconvenient it is to have satellite radio, which allows for stations to come in clear and not scratchy the whole way, so you don’t have to find some crappy local farm report station in the middle of a mountain pass. Yet, with all the thousands of stations available, only a few were “suitable” for the whole family, and that one “suitable” for the whole family station only played 14 songs. Experience the frustration in Road Trip Music Bitterness.
Another frustration that we as many others do in a road trip/vacation is the Sun. Getting in your eyes, melting stuff, only coming out when it wants to, and making really crappy foods are just a few things the sun do that make me bitter. Find out more in The Bitter Sun.
Finally last Friday, I was having all kinds of luck. And by luck I mean bad luck. And by bad luck I mean disasters. And by disasters I mean really bad things, like light bulbs failing and having to change them, electric toothbrush working too fast, getting water on my socks, etc. To express my bitter rage, I did some Cluster Luck Friday Giftures.
