Funny Blog Friday and Halloween Bitter Giftures

  When I first moved to Seattle, my brother in law(and his family) had just moved here too.  When he moved to another house, he forgot his valued high school sweatshirt.  So one day, out of the kindness of our hearts (by ours I mean not mine) we brought it back to him.  He said he … Continue reading Funny Blog Friday and Halloween Bitter Giftures

The Bitter Battle for Control (and how everything can be a weapon)

  I'm a longtime fan of action movies. Some people like action movies for the explosions or the tension, or the unbelievability of it all.  While those are all good things, especially the unbelievability of them, it's the individual fight scenes between two fairly even opponents that fascinates me.  That is what most action movies seem to … Continue reading The Bitter Battle for Control (and how everything can be a weapon)


Epic Failure Contest

Don't ever tell me that I learn a lesson from failing at something. A couple of years ago, when this blog was very new and I was idealistic about it going to a place where I would never have to do real work ever again, I held a contest giveaway.  I did what I thought … Continue reading Epic Failure Contest


The Land of the Lost Bitter Posts – The Disney Chronicles

Hey Bitter Stalkers! I've got a really bitter true story to tell you. When I graduated from high school (don't laugh, bitter people graduate too. Cause teachers want them gone, duh!) I got a senior trip because my parents didn't want to get me a car.  So I decided to go to Cincinnati, because I'm … Continue reading The Land of the Lost Bitter Posts – The Disney Chronicles


Can’t do attitude Friday Giftures

The thing I love best about living in America is the amount of freedom we are given. Dreams are so abundant here that they grow on tall, leaf covered lamp posts.  If there is a light on your street, there is a dream to be achieved.  If you want to a successful salesman, all you … Continue reading Can’t do attitude Friday Giftures


My Bitter Nightmare

  It's that time of the year again.  The fake and real spiderwebs are out in force, fake and pumpkin guts are spilled all over and fake and real people are dressed up as fake and real ugly people.  This time of year is the time of nightmares.  As you can probably imagine, there are … Continue reading My Bitter Nightmare


The Long Lost Bitter Posts Volume 3

Of all the things I've lost over the years, my mind is the thing that I miss the least. The thing I miss the most is my internet connection.  How else am I supposed to post all my bitter thoughts across all kinds of internet platforms, if I only have two bars? Thinking about stuff … Continue reading The Long Lost Bitter Posts Volume 3

A bitter Friday to you, Bitter Stalkers (suggested name of the Bitter Blog followers by Insanitybytes22) out there! Earlier this week I tweeted a tweet about Eye Rolling and my Eye Rolling expertise: I knew even way back earlier in the week, that eye rolling was destined to be the subject of this week's … Continue reading Bitter Eye Roll Friday Giftures


Language Barrier Bitterness and the Bitter Translator

There are like a thousand different languages being spoken every day.  In my office alone, there is English, Spanish, Japanese, Vietnamese, Korean, sarcasm, Texas drawl and the one I speak, Bitterness.  Those are just the ones that I can think of.  There is also the written languages that can be easily misinterpreted like email, texting, tweeting, Facebooking and … Continue reading Language Barrier Bitterness and the Bitter Translator


Writing Activity p. 25 blog summary

This blogger found and disected the Ben’s Bitter Blog for their class. Take a look to see what happened when they put bitterness in a blender and saw what came out.

My Class Blog

Ben’s Bitter Blog

Before this class I never blogged or ever cared, that is until I stumbled upon a Ben’s Bitter Blog. The title caught my attention being different from the typical dull blogger. Reading into his posts I soon followed. The blog while being bitter in a sense, is intentional to make people laugh. Each post is bound to make the reader chuckle in some way.

Take a moment and read into a few posts if you’d like, maybe even follow it if it’s your style of humor. The key when reading is understanding sarcasm. For example…

“I hear Halloween is coming up.  Not sure how since Halloween stores have only been open since early August, and Halloween themed candy has only been on sale since July.  I love how the holidays recently have taken a step back to give us a little relief to do other things like mock the…

The Lost Bitter Posts Volume 2

Because I am a bitter man and a stubborn person, I would much more prefer to get lost on my way somewhere than to ever ask someone for instructions.  I have wandered the streets of downtown Seattle aimlessly for hours, got lost in the mountains overnight and even got lost on my way from the … Continue reading The Lost Bitter Posts Volume 2


Messy Freaking Friday Giftures

My desk is a mess, my car is a mess, my clothes are a mess.  Even Pigpen thinks I'm a mess.  Life is messy that is for sure, but none more than mine.  In fact, my hair is so tired of the mess my brain is, that the sides spike out just so they won't have to be … Continue reading Messy Freaking Friday Giftures


Bitter Retirement

  I know I look pretty old for a 41 year old, but that's because I'm really only 6.  I have lived a hard life of eating food, laying on the couch and pretending to type things at work to make them think I'm working. Ever since I was young, I've always wanted to be … Continue reading Bitter Retirement

I bid you a bitter welcome, Bittertarians. Or Bittermaliens. Or Bitter people?

The Lost Bitter Blog Posts Volume 1

I've been doing this blogging thing for over 2 1/2 years years now, and pretty regularly I might add.  When there are so many things I have to be bitter about, there has always been a wealth of subjects to choose from.  You've probably read a few posts and cringed thinking "Is it even possible … Continue reading The Lost Bitter Blog Posts Volume 1


Crashing into Friday Giftures

Did this week feel like a train wreck in progress to everyone else like it did to me? I don't know if you remember all the way back to Monday, but it was a whole month ago (September) and that is a busy month for my job.  It required me to sit at my desk … Continue reading Crashing into Friday Giftures


If I ruled the world…it would be a Bitter Place

I was reading the post of a fellow blogger, Alanna, a couple of weeks ago and she wrote a short post about what she would do if she ruled the world. Of course, I thought it was a great idea for a post so I am stealing it because I don't have any original thought. … Continue reading If I ruled the world…it would be a Bitter Place
