My son and I have had this nightly routine this summer. I get home from work and sweaty and sticky, because my car doesn't have air conditioning. Around 5:30 pm, I throw my stuff everywhere, talk with the wife about our days, and just when I sit down and chill on my phone. Just when … Continue reading Home run Bitter Giftures

This is How Smart I Am
In my 5 years as a blogger, I have seen many bloggers come and go. Some were great, some were good, and some were downright awful. Thankfully most of the awful ones didn’t last, so they probably won’t read this. If they are reading this, YOU WERE AWFUL! Okay, you don’t have to be so hard on yourself Ben, you were awful, but at least you stuck to it.
Anyways, I was talking to Rachel Being Chatty yesterday and we were talking about the few bloggers that are pretty consistent with their blogging over time, and we came to the conclusion that the reason why they are pretty consistent is that they have a theme and they stick to it.
For instance, if you’ve ever read any of my blogs, you would know the theme of my blog. Bitterness comes in many forms, and I am each one of those forms. From complaining about traffic, to trees to any kind of news, I am there almost every other day.
Rachel follows a similar theme, but is more witty, and sarcastic than me. She also has really short posts that are almost Twitter like in length. So you can count on her to have at least 5-15 posts a day of witty, Twitter like observations every day. So, you know that you can count on her for content. You know it won’t be a ghost town when you come and get hooked on her blog. By the way, while I am in the midst of explaining her blog, she has probably already done 4 or 5 posts. I guess my style is a bit longer.
Yesterday, we talked about collaborating and this is just a part of it. We are reblogging a post of each other’s today(so go check her blog for my post) and we might do more in the future. Or maybe not. You might see us co-hosting the Oscar’s someday.
In the meantime, go check out her blog, follow, like, and subscribe and even follow her on Twitter or Patreon. I don’t have the links, but if you ask her she will gladly provide them for you. She promises lot of funny content. By the way, if you all want to collaborate, I love money, and that helps me get motivated to get off the couch from time to time.

I have adjustable speeds
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qutU-XiAzFg When I first started to drive at the age of 14, I had to learn on an automatic car. I quickly learned how to do that, and I got bored. In an automatic, all you have to do is push the gas occasionally and the shifting is done for you. I started doing stupid … Continue reading I have adjustable speeds
Yesterday, there was a holiday being celebrated exclusively in the state of Utah. It is in honor of the day that the pioneers ended up here 170 years ago. It's an awesome holiday because only a very few people get it off. Since it is only a state holiday, if your company happens to be … Continue reading Bitter Pioneer
Not so cool Friday Giftures
I don't work at the speed of light. I have a tendency to be slackadaisical from time to time, especially when it comes to people I don't needing things from me. I take my time to do things mediocrially. But for the most part I get things done within the day that you need it. … Continue reading Not so cool Friday Giftures
Awkward Party of 7, please
I haven't done this before, but today is my oldest girl's birthday. She just transitioned from the awkward age of 12, to the even more awkward age of 13. So officially, I now have a teen living under my roof and that is bad news. I've heard that they can be kind of a pain. … Continue reading Awkward Party of 7, please
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qutU-XiAzFg&t=9s You know how most people when they are young have no idea what they want to be when they grow up? Except maybe that they wanted to be a movie star, or a fire fighter, or a ballerina? Surprisingly, I knew exactly what I wanted to be when I grew up. I remember the … Continue reading Bitter Copywriter
You broke my smolder Friday Giftures
I am in the middle of an epic struggle called it's the hottest time of the year here, and we have no air conditioning. I was used to that in Seattle, because it never got over 55 degrees there, but here it has been between 95 and like 2000 degrees hotter than sun. I … Continue reading You broke my smolder Friday Giftures
Nothing listens to me anymore
You probably think because I type so many words on blog posts 3-5 times a week, that I talk a lot. Nope. I am a bitterman of few words. I choose to keep all my thoughts and ideas bottled up, so I can one day explode. Either that or I write them here, so that … Continue reading Nothing listens to me anymore
No So Real Estate
I've never been a big fan of real estate. Seems like land shouldn't really cost as much as people are pricing it at. What the frick is land anyways? A bunch of dirt and grass and insects who were probably there first and probably paid a lot of money to their insect landlords only to … Continue reading No So Real Estate
The Bitter Ben Extended Benematic Universe
Did you know Spiderman just came out this weekend? The 15th new one since last Spiderman movie. I've heard it is good or whatever and of course I'm going to go see it, because I'm a sucker and sitting in a cool, dark theater doing nothing beats being in a lighted cool workplace any day. … Continue reading The Bitter Ben Extended Benematic Universe
Power out Friday Giftures
Of course we lose power in the middle of the summer. We have the worst luck in the world (or at least my own world) when it comes to losing power. We used to lose it all the time in Seattle. Any time a tree swayed or a slight wind picked up, you could count … Continue reading Power out Friday Giftures
Video Games Toughest Boss Battle
Last night when I was playing video games, I was having a tough go of it. It wasn't that I was having a particularly hard time against the enemies I was facing. By now, I've destroyed thousands of them using my many techniques, tactics and weapons. I know their tendencies like I know bitterness. It … Continue reading Video Games Toughest Boss Battle
Tomorrow in the U.S.A., it is one of our biggest holidays, so much so that they don't let us have an entire week off, but just one day. The best part is that it is holiday where you are almost required to stay up late, because it doesn't get dark until like 9:30 pm, and … Continue reading Bendependence Day
