Eggcellent Bitter Friday Giftures

  I've been on a bitter diet lately, because my doctor told me I had to. I don't know why doctors are always telling you such bitter news.

What does your work computer do on weekends?

I guess there are some people out there that love work so much, that they work weekends, even though they don't have to. I should know. My wife watches Hallmark movies, and that is the MO of every single bad boyfriend on that network. There are only 3 script types at Hallmark. Script number 1B … Continue reading What does your work computer do on weekends?

DNA Test Bitterness

When I was a sophomore in high school, we had to take Biology.  I couldn't stand my teacher, because he was a pig before the #metoo movement started, but also he wasn't very good at teaching. I remember him talking about the weirdest things like you should change your deodorant often because the glands under … Continue reading DNA Test Bitterness

Running on a Treadmill Bitter Friday Giftures

  Whatever you do, don't go to the doctor. You think you are just going there for a routine check or to get some pills so they can just easily cure you. Turns out that isn't the case.

Weening off Bitter Friday Giftures

  I've never been big into using long names for people. I've always been a nickname person. For each of my siblings, my wife and kids - I have nicknames for all of them.

Mustard Seed Bitterness

I'm a very picky eater. I don't know if it was because when I was growing up, I really just liked peanut butter sandwiches, and cereal and no one ever forced me to try anything new, or if it was my tongue that exclusively likes the bitter taste.  I'm pretty much like Mikey from the … Continue reading Mustard Seed Bitterness

Spooky Story Bitter Friday Giftures

  I've never been big into the spooky part of Halloween. I will occasionally visit a haunted house or watch a scary movie, but they don't really define the season for me. It isn't those corn mazes or pumpkins that seem to pop up overnight in every field, henhouse, doghouse, and backyard. It isn't the … Continue reading Spooky Story Bitter Friday Giftures

Free Time Bitter Friday Giftures

Got any games on your Phone Bitterness

My kids are always alerting me of the latest memes, as if I wasn't 100% in on all of them.  Honestly, I think my kids speak meme, because 90% of what comes out of their mouths refer to some meme or another. I try to be in the know so I can talk to them, … Continue reading Got any games on your Phone Bitterness

Car Investigative Report Bitter Friday Giftures

  When we wake up to get ready for school/work, we turn on the news. I despise most news because it is all just a bunch of politics and bad news about murder and court appearances and such.

Harry Bitter Friday Giftures

  I was watching Harry Potter last night and it reminded me of something spooky. No, not witches and wizards or Horcruxes or Voldemort. It reminded me of something I did just yesterday. I didn't like my haircut, so I fixed it myself. My hair is already bad enough, but then letting myself hack it … Continue reading Harry Bitter Friday Giftures

John Wick Bitterness

I've never understood the Phone wars (Samsung v. Iphone) or the mobile network wars (T-Mobile v. ATT v. Verizon v. Sprint). At this point all of them are pretty much the same and do about the same thing. I think they all pretty much suck at phone calls (which is fine because I don't call … Continue reading John Wick Bitterness
