Bitter Networking Network

I have many ambitions in life.  One is to get an all you can eat card from Pizza Hut, another is to be able to do a 3 day video game binge where all I do is play all the video games I haven't had a chance to play in the last 20 years, and … Continue reading Bitter Networking Network

Bitter Friday Drifting Giftures

As you know, I'm a big fan of the nap.  It provides me with a good way to get away from reality, because reality makes me bitter.  In reality, you have to be around people and answer questions, and do things.  All things I don't like doing.  I've found though, that you don't always have … Continue reading Bitter Friday Drifting Giftures

100,000 Bitter Views

  I've been annoying people for a long time now.  From the moment I started kicking in my mom's belly to popping the plastic letter people in kindergarten to jumping on my bed in first grade to annoying 4 siblings, to annoying roommates and now my co-workers and family members, I've had a long illustrious … Continue reading 100,000 Bitter Views

The End of the Lines

I learned a few things on my vacation.  "The more the merrier" is totally untrue, you can never have too much pizza (actually wait, already knew that) and lines are the most destructive thing on the planet. Let me state that again very clearly.  Lines are the most destructive thing on the planet. DO NOT … Continue reading The End of the Lines

The Bitter Side of…the Sun

One night at dinner in one of the 5 star Disney cruise restaurants, I was eating one of my two entrees that night, and my son and I spent the good part of a dinner talking about being invincible and what we would do if we were so.  Of course we would sword fight, punch … Continue reading The Bitter Side of…the Sun

Thanks a lot Dad…

Thanks a lot dad.  Thanks for teaching me your favorite saying, "Life isn't fair." Why can't your favorite saying be, "Everytime you try to win the lottery, you will win the lottery!" Thanks a lot dad.  Thank you so much for teaching me about responsibility.  Why couldn't you teach me about laziness? I had to … Continue reading Thanks a lot Dad…

What it feels like to come home from Vacation Friday Giftures

I'm back, Bitters, and more bitter than ever.  Vacation has a way of centering my bitterness and helping me focus even more on it, since I'm not really busy doing work.  Eventually, despite many of your desperate inner pleas for me to never come back and perpetually keep my bitterness to myself, all things come … Continue reading What it feels like to come home from Vacation Friday Giftures

Bitter Guest Post – Jaclyn from Snarky Brunette – Summer Time Isn’t Happy, It’s Purely Bitter

Last up, but certainly not the least bitter before my inevitable return is Jaclyn from The Snarky Brunette.  She has been bitter from the beginning and is very straight forward on her bitter views.  She also does some really bitter YouTube videos and parodies.  You may have seen her on Long Awkward Pause as their … Continue reading Bitter Guest Post – Jaclyn from Snarky Brunette – Summer Time Isn’t Happy, It’s Purely Bitter

Bitter Guest Post – Ben from Ben’s Bitter Blog – “Out to Sea Giftures”

Today's guest poster will be me.  Bitter Ben is a blogger...blah blah...Clearly, I either have delegation issues, or someone didn't offer to do the Friday Giftures, both of which make me bitter.  What you should know is that I have just been through a torturous week of eating tons of free food, getting sick from … Continue reading Bitter Guest Post – Ben from Ben’s Bitter Blog – “Out to Sea Giftures”

Bitter Guest Post – Mindy from Yellow Fever – “Started From The Bottom”

  Today's substantial upgrade at substitute blogging is Mindy from Yellow Fever, a guest poster who totally volunteered when I coerced her into doing a post for me about a month or so ago.  When I first started reading her blog, I knew she was a bitter blogger cut out of the same cloth as me. … Continue reading Bitter Guest Post – Mindy from Yellow Fever – “Started From The Bottom”

Bitter Guest Post – Annie from Under and Over and Around and Through – “Bitter Grocery Store Experience”

Hello Bitter Blog Followers.  It is I, Bitter Ben, and I come to you from the Past, because when you read this, I will be soaking in the darkness and bitterness of the moonlight on a cruise ship.  I am obviously complaining to some poor, sad ship worker about something bitter or another and trying … Continue reading I’m blogging to you from the Bitter Past

Murphy’s Law Friday Giftures

Murphy's law is the only law I follow all the time.  For instance, I'm always on time or early to everything, which for the most part is a meaningless skill.  But the one time I need to be early, something will always happen to me that causes lateness.  A flat tire, run out of gas, … Continue reading Murphy’s Law Friday Giftures

Almost Bitterly Famous

I've had my brushes with fame in the past.  One time when I was a stupid kid, in about 4th grade, I was outside at recess in the cold South Dakota air, running and sliding on the massive skating rink that was out recess area.  I slid once and hurt my arm.  Nothing big, until … Continue reading Almost Bitterly Famous
