The Upside Downiverse Bitter Friday Giftures

As the calendar flips to October, Halloweenites can finally breathe easy with knowledge that they can finally come out of the closet...with their decorations, costumes, candy and fake graveyards. I used to work with a guy that loved Halloween so much, that he said he started working on his costume for Halloween on November 1st. … Continue reading The Upside Downiverse Bitter Friday Giftures

Streamer Bitter Friday Giftures

When I was 22, I had the energy to work a full day, come home, play a sport, and then after that go out and enjoy some time with friends and then come home and stay up until 4 am. I never did any of those things, but I had the energy to do those … Continue reading Streamer Bitter Friday Giftures

Underground Lair Bitter Friday Giftures

We've all lost a lot in the pandemic. Lost lives, lost jobs, lost businesses, lost freedoms and lost breathing (you know from those dang masks). All I know is that I've never wearing one of those things again. I've personally lost a lot of things since the pandemic started too. I'm still missing one of … Continue reading Underground Lair Bitter Friday Giftures

Famous Relatives Bitter Friday Giftures

Fun Fact: I am in the movie Jaws. Not as an actor, no as in my name. And it might be at one of the scariest parts. If you don't believe me, watch this... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XDs5a0BcEzY Other than this obscure fact about my name is in the first ever summer blockbuster, and the runaway success of … Continue reading Famous Relatives Bitter Friday Giftures

April Fool Bitter Friday Giftures

Other than the my birthday and Christmas, April Fool's Day is probably my favorite day of the year. It was especially awesome back in the day when the company I worked for had year end on March 31st, which meant we often had to stay until really late pretending to work or something. So the … Continue reading April Fool Bitter Friday Giftures

Bitter Book Bitterness

Recently, I did a blog post about the fact that I've been blogging for 9 years now. Which seems crazy, because I barely have the attention span of a gnat. This blog is older than most gnats. Except for that gnat that looks like Prince Phillip. You might think that I've done nothing else in … Continue reading Bitter Book Bitterness

Mascot Bitter Friday Giftures

Why do you think March Madness the ultimate time of year for so many people? Well, some say it is for college basketball. You know, the crazy upsets, the buzzer beaters and the nail biting games. Or it could be the one-in-a-million shot that you could accidentally fill out a Final Four bracket in your … Continue reading Mascot Bitter Friday Giftures

Selling a Piece of History Bitter Friday Giftures

For anyone who read my blog post on Tuesday, I promised a big announcement and since I am really good at disappointing all of you, here it is. But before I announce it let's get some context.

My Bitter Blog is a 4th Grader

Interruption in the beginning of the blog because nobody reads past the first sentence. I will be making a big announcement on this blog on Friday. Now, back to the beginning of the blog post. Technically, this blog started 48 years ago, when my dad and mom looked at each other and said "Okay, I … Continue reading My Bitter Blog is a 4th Grader

We are all downloading something these days. Sometimes it takes a long time, other times just a second or two, depending on the speed of your connection and how big the download is. Some of them take up a whole lot of your hard drive space, and others just a tiny little bit. Back in … Continue reading Download Bitter Friday Giftures

Pillow Bitter Friday Giftures

I cannot sleep! Yesterday during my typical 3 pm lull, I was struggling to doze off. As a late 40's guy, I've never struggled to get at least 15 winks here and there at the computer, while pretending to do work, but lately it's been a struggle bus. It would be easy to blame things … Continue reading Pillow Bitter Friday Giftures

Headphone Bitter Friday Giftures

I've always been a big advocate of people leaving me alone. One of my best defenses against people talking to me was this marvelous invention called headphones. When people see them on me, they should assume that I am listening to something of utmost importance, even if I'm only listening to a goofy podcast, or … Continue reading Headphone Bitter Friday Giftures

Cartoonish Behavior Bitter Friday Giftures

Last week I talked about when I was a kid and how people were always trying to get me to go play more sports. I guess sports were supposed to teach me about getting in shape, working with a bunch of other people and following rules or something. As you can see, all those things … Continue reading Cartoonish Behavior Bitter Friday Giftures

Come out and Play Bitter Friday Giftures

When I was in 3rd and 4th grade, I was a fairly athletic and yet very lazy person. The neighborhood kids at my school always wanted to play football after school and would call a bunch of people to come play. When I was done with school all I wanted to do was come home … Continue reading Come out and Play Bitter Friday Giftures

Walking Billboard Bitter Friday Giftures

This morning when I was getting ready, I noticed something. I put on a Nike shirt, a Nike sweatshirt, some Nike shoes and some Gap jeans. I've liked Nike products ever since I was young, and the jeans, well I just like how they fit. I'm not sure that I like Nike for any particular … Continue reading Walking Billboard Bitter Friday Giftures

Broken Record Bitter Friday Giftures

Have you ever noticed that your life seems like a broken record? Hold on. Let's back up a little here first. What is a broken record? If you are under 25 do you even know what a record is? If you don't, it is a really large CD, which, wait, you probably don't know what … Continue reading Broken Record Bitter Friday Giftures

M. A. D. Principle Bitter Friday Giftures

It would seem rather grim that I'm writing about the M.A.D. Principle one week before Christmas, but I'm not a Hallmark movie, so I'm not preparing for the big Christmas festival with gingerbread making contests and Christmas scavenger hunts. I'm just a regular bitter person that want to talk about the M.A.D. syndrome or Mutually … Continue reading M. A. D. Principle Bitter Friday Giftures

Obstacle Course Bitter Friday Giftures

When I was a kid, I was pretty athletic, so I enjoyed doing sports like things. One of favorite things was running through obstacle courses. Sometimes I even made up my own and did them with friends. What I didn't realize is that I would be competing in them my whole life, most of the … Continue reading Obstacle Course Bitter Friday Giftures
