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

Racing Trains Bitter Friday Giftures

Remember the end of the original The Fast and the Furious movie where Vin Diesel and Paul Walker were racing and they were being chased by the cops? They ended up racing against a train and barely avoided getting hit by it. Well, you can now call me the Fast and the Bitter. Well, that … Continue reading Racing Trains 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

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

The Great Equalizer Bitter Friday Giftures

There is a video that I saw on Facebook that I saw quite a while ago that has stuck with me for some time.

It … Continue reading The Great Equalizer Bitter Friday Giftures

Amber Alert Bitter Friday Giftures

You know how those "murder" shows on Dateline NBC or Cold Case files, or Snapped start out? "It was a typical sunny day on a lazy summer afternoon in a sleepy suburb of Salt Lake City. No one would ever expect what would happen on this day September 15, 2020." Cut to talking to a … Continue reading Amber Alert Bitter Friday Giftures

Big Flop Friday Giftures

  Summer is the time when you should get home flip off your shoes and socks and immediately walk around in your bare feet, or at the maximum, wear your flip flops. Some years have been flips, others have been flops. This year on the blog has been a big flop. Actually, I've been pretty … Continue reading Big Flop Friday Giftures

What do you deserve Ownership Stake in?

My favorite basketball player, David Robinson had a Hall of Fame career with the San Antonio Spurs. He made a ton of money in his career, but when he retired he was only 38 years old. Obviously, when you are 38 you still have a lot of life left to live. He did some amazing … Continue reading What do you deserve Ownership Stake in?

Secret Stone on Our House

When I got home on Friday, I was told we had bees. One of my least favorite things are bees, the ones that sting anyways. In the summertime of my 14th year, it was a warm day and we had our sliding door open. For some reason, I was  running in circles in our television … Continue reading Secret Stone on Our House

I might have a Concussion

One of my favorite episodes of the Office is when Micheal Scott calls the office to tell everyone that he burned his foot on a George Forman grill. The episode is the funny from beginning to end. Micheal asks Pam to come and get him and he acts like the world has ended because his … Continue reading I might have a Concussion

Hanxiety

Meetings are the bane of existence. In yesterday's Dilbert comic on my calendar, they talked about a four hour meeting in which Dilbert, the pointy haired boss, and the intern all talked about the conclusion of the meeting was three different outcomes. The boss then suggests that they should have another four hour meeting to … Continue reading Hanxiety

The Bitter IT Guy

When we lived in Seattle, we used to get power outages all the time. I think it was because it rained all the time, the lightning and wind would blow the way too pervasive amount of trees around, and whall la, power outage. When we had outages there though, they would almost always go on … Continue reading The Bitter IT Guy

Bitter Friend Finder

Ever since I was pretty young, I've been a really small circle of bitter friends kind of guy. As previously noted on this blog, I'm a claustraphobic and I probably didn't mention, I have social anxiety too. You probably don't have to be Einstein to figure that out. Basically parties are my worst nightmare. They … Continue reading Bitter Friend Finder

Foreign Language Animals

There is this guy in my department that can speak five languges. I find it almost unfathomable to speak another language. Not that it wouldn't be cool to know one. It would come in handy when you wanted to spy on someone. You see it all the time in movies. Two people speaking a different … Continue reading Foreign Language Animals
