Bodycam for Work Bitter Friday Giftures

  I get a lot of ideas and inspiration from Scott Adams (creator of Dilbert), who is actually a pretty brilliant guy, with a good sense of humor.  I'm much like him, except for his brilliance and sense of humor. Anyway, recently he had a series of Dilberts where Dilbert wore a work bodycam so … Continue reading Bodycam for Work Bitter Friday Giftures

Balloons Are the Worst Bitter Friday Giftures

  A couple of weeks ago, we were trying to do a nice surprise for my daughter for her birthday.

Swift Kick in the Bitter Friday Giftures

  I don't know if you know it, but your teenager does and they will tell you about it Swiftly.

Air Conditioning Bitter Friday Giftures

  About a week ago, just like summer clockwork, our air conditioning pooped out during the biggest heatwaves of the summer. It's all about timing right?

It just seems to me that … Continue reading Air Conditioning Bitter Friday Giftures

Spreading the Cheer Bitter Friday Giftures

  Don't you just love Christmas in July? Yeah, me neither. Hallmark does this thing every year where they try and recapture the magic of Christmas by showing their really bad Christmas specials during the hottest part of the year, July.

Eye Contact Bitter Friday Giftures

  I've always had trouble with eye contact. I don't know what it is about eye contact, but I think somehow it is related to how confident you are, or something like that.  Other times you just don't know the appropriate amount of time you are allowed or supposed to look at someone. It seems … Continue reading Eye Contact Bitter Friday Giftures

Wildfire Bitter Friday Giftures

  You know that expression spreading like wildfire?

Supplemental Bitter Saturday Giftures

  I recently got a new job (so weird for me I know) and it is helping with social media for a supplement company (you know, for weight lifters).

Donation Station Bitter Friday Giftures

  As many stores closed in mid-March for the epidemic and we were forced to stay home, many crazy things started happening.

The combination of stuff that needed to be … Continue reading Donation Station Bitter Friday Giftures

The Matrix Bitter Friday Giftures

  It seems to me that the Matrix hasn't been working very well lately.  There must be some sort of glitch that is causing some really unbelievable things.

Have you noticed it like … Continue reading The Matrix Bitter Friday Giftures

  My computer and phone have this feature where you can fill out your name, address, and phone number and anytime a form pops up on the internet, it will offer to fill out those things for you.

Back Pain Ben Bitter Friday Giftures

  I have a lot of pain, in a lot of places, all over. I guess that is the fun part of aging.

If only my family stayed in hotels … Continue reading Back Pain Ben Bitter Friday Giftures

20/20 Vision Bitter Friday Giftures

  When I was in my early 30's, I was still wearing glasses, as I had been since I was 17.

Turns out I'm … Continue reading 20/20 Vision Bitter Friday Giftures

Home Schooling Bitter Friday Giftures

  Most of you probably figured out on my Wednesday post that the going on a game show was a stupid April Fool's Day joke.
