Surprise parties are kind of the worst. Birthdays are already invaded by other people that never talk to you on Facebook all of a sudden sending you profound birthday messages like, "Happy Birthday!" The rest of the day is either work, or family or friends calling you with some super sweet small talk which drives … Continue reading Surprise! Friday Giftures

Come back to the Comfort zone!
Just about every story starts the same way. The hero of our story is sitting around in their comfort zone, pinning away for an adventure. Stuck in their old ways. Wanting something more out of life. Wanting to swim in another direction. Link from the Legend of Zelda, usually starts out in bed. He is … Continue reading Come back to the Comfort zone!
Watch This YouTube Video (that may or may not feature your favorite bitter person)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=watGFxCDq5w I know you people are pretty bad at watching my YouTube videos, as evidenced by the really low amount of people that watched and commented on my videos I did about 1 or two years ago, and the extremely low amount of viralness they have achieved in the YouTube realm, so now that I've … Continue reading Watch This YouTube Video (that may or may not feature your favorite bitter person)
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
I used to play NBA Jams when I was in college and I loved it because it was completely unrealistic. If you weren't from my era, NBA Jams was a baskeball video game that was basically two on two with NBA players that could jump 50 feet in their air for dunks and included no … Continue reading Rejection Bitterness
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…
