The Unmitigated Disasters of Friday Giftures

  This week has just been...uggh. I should have expected that though, as it is my least favorite month of the year. The rejections came fast and furious, usually waiting for just the right moment. I get some sort of momentum going then, Schreechhhh! It's comes to a halt by just a few stupidly placed … Continue reading The Unmitigated Disasters of Friday Giftures

Bitter Rivalry of the Week: Daylight Savings vs. Nightlight Savings

Nobody likes a thief. Yet every year, those of us that are forced to change every one of our clocks(I guess Arizona thinks they are so cool because they don't switch back and forth like the rest of us) because some arbitrary time clock boss tells us we have to, we allow time to be … Continue reading Bitter Rivalry of the Week: Daylight Savings vs. Nightlight Savings

St. Bitter Patrick’s Day Friday Giftures

I've never been much of a St. Patrick's Day guy because I don't like being told what color I'm supposed to wear, and I don't like people in my personal space trying to pinch me. And if they pinch me, I should be growing an inch, not because I forgot to wear green. Plus, when … Continue reading St. Bitter Patrick’s Day Friday Giftures

Walking a Tightrope to Friday Giftures

  You know those cats that are on those posters that are hanging on a rope and the stupid caption above their head says, "Hold on or something" or "Hang in there, man, you hang in there, you got that McClane?" Well the gifs being presented today are nothing like those motivational moments. These are … Continue reading Walking a Tightrope to Friday Giftures

Guess who wrote 4 posts on this blog for the first time ever 5 years ago today?

  I don't know. Someone probably. And also me. I am guessing that literally zero people that are reading this blog right now, read the first 4 posts I wrote that day. You know why I know that? Because the day I wrote my first post, only three people read it, and it was people … Continue reading Guess who wrote 4 posts on this blog for the first time ever 5 years ago today?

The Customer Service around here is horrible…

I've spent quite a lot of time in my career in customer service, which as you know is a really bad thing, because I'm horrible at it. People can sense it with me when I'm on the phone with them. They can feel the gritted teeth, the sarcastic tone, and they can see the eye … Continue reading The Customer Service around here is horrible…

Bitter Rivalry of the Week: Video Games vs. Work

Just like in the video games we play, there is a constant battle of my time between playing video games and doing some sort of work. When crossing the battlefield of time wasters, who will be King of the Hill? The Battle of the Bad Back: My lower back is constantly hurting me. But what … Continue reading Bitter Rivalry of the Week: Video Games vs. Work

That was a close shave…Friday Giftures

  I'm not sure where that expression came from. I have been shaving since I was 14, and I've never had a close shave. I've had shaves that have cut, bruised, bled, caused multiple blood spots, and splotches, but never had one close. And for goodness sakes, I shave all the time and somehow it … Continue reading That was a close shave…Friday Giftures

Giving up things for Lent…

How was all of your Fat Tuesdays? I'm not Catholic and I don't go to Mardi Grass, but I've heard that you are supposed to give up things for Lent. Yes, this sounds like a fabulous idea. I have lots of things to give up. In fact, I have a whole garageful. I would really … Continue reading Giving up things for Lent…
