I’m usually pretty terrible at remembering anniversaries, which is why I decided to get married in 2000, so I would always know how many years I’ve been married. It has been pretty foolproof, and the end of summer date is also good, so we can always go on a chill date, while we make fun of our kids for having to go back to school.
The sad thing is that I usually remember the anniversary of my Ben’s Bitter Blog on March 8th, but totally biffed it on Friday. Luckily, you all got a bunch of Gifs to celebrate. It might have been because I didn’t want the celebration to overshadow Captain Marvel or the International Celebration of Women, so I just decided to wait until today to toot my own horn.
So what numbers pop out to you when you think of 7 years of things? I think of bad luck. So apparently you all walked under a ladder, and crossed paths with a black cat 7 years ago, because my blog has been nothing but bitter luck and misery for you all for 7 years. I feel for you, but mostly I feel for me. I’ve been doing all this hard work and none of you have transferred any of your back accounts to my name or given up any of your lottery money winnings to me.
I guess I will have to keep toiling away hoping that someday Rainn Wilson will discover this blog and want to buy it for billions while wanting me to assistant blog manage it. In the meantime, you will just have to watch my Bitter News from the Couch #10 instead as a way to make me bitterly famous.

YAY!!! Happy Bitter-Blog Anniversary, Ben! May the bitterness be with you! May the bitterness continue for 77 more years! 😀 “I bitter, therefore I am.” a quote by BB! 😛
PS…it is rainy and snowy here and I am so happy! 🙂
It is rainy and snowy here too, so I am bitter. Even if I don’t continue, I will make sure either my daughter or son take it over, or the magical bitter ghost of blog writing.

Wishing you a very unhappy anniversary!
I appreciate that. I definitely did. I think everyone was doing all they could to make it one.
I’m not sure why, but the floating word, “antics” cracked me up. Funny stuff, Bitter Ben!
I wish I could figure out how to make my antics float. They seem to always drown in the pool.
