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.

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?

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.

As you can see, all those things … Continue reading Cartoonish Behavior Bitter Friday Giftures

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.

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?

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.

Halloween Bitter Friday Giftures

  Halloween is just around the corner and this may be the scariest year yet, because many places are either cancelling or being told they can't do Halloween.

The Amazing Race Bitter Friday Giftures

  Race has been a tricky word this year, whether it be in the race for the presidency or other dealing with the different races in our country, but I think we should talk more about the Amazing Race, which just started its 32nd season? I don't know what it is about this show, (maybe … Continue reading The Amazing Race Bitter Friday Giftures

Instruction Manual Bitter Friday Giftures

  Owner's manual's seem to come with everything. You get them for TV's and vacuum's and cars and camera's. Some people love them and some hate them.

Subject Lines Bitter Friday Giftures

  When I was in 7th grade, our social studies teacher made us do this assignment where we had to pick a career that we wanted to do when we grew up.

Editing 2020 Bitter Friday Giftures

  As writers, or wanna be writers like me, we are all pretty familiar with the editing process in one way or another.

Instagrammers are … Continue reading Editing 2020 Bitter Friday Giftures

My Chair is Aging Bitter Friday Giftures

  I just started a new job a couple of months ago, and when they brought me to my desk, it was pretty plain. It has a computer, two monitors and well, a chair.

Attention Getting Bad Air Quality Bitter Friday Giftures

  You would probably never guess this, but Utah has one of the worst air quality areas in the country. It's this weird weather phenomenon called the inversion that makes it that way.

The World has never been more clean Bitter Friday Giftures
