Words stick to me like Glue

You know that old saying, "I am rubber and you are glue, bounces off of me and sticks to you." Also, the one that says, "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me." Yeah, those saying only apply to other people. Words stick to ME like glue. Sticks and stone … Continue reading Words stick to me like Glue

It’s Finally Q&A Time

You bitterlings finally came up with some questions for me to answer. Not very good ones mind you, but that's okay, because I don't have very good answers. From Does It Even Matter? Q’s: Were you born bitter or did that develop over time?  Bitterness was something I was born with. I spend 9 months … Continue reading It’s Finally Q&A Time

Music on Repeat

Did everyone have as bitter of a weekend as I did? I mean seriously, we got the same NBA Finals as we have the last four years? The weather was fairly lackluster and haven't blogged since last Friday, so it seems like it has been an eternity since I've written a terrible blog post. Though … Continue reading Music on Repeat

The Devil’s Haircut Bitter Friday Giftures

  I have almost no hair. I've never really had much and honestly I've never even wanted long hair, even back in the 80's when lots of dudes did. I'm not much of a fan of hair because it grosses me out when it gets in my mouth or near my face. Anyways, the haircut … Continue reading The Devil’s Haircut Bitter Friday Giftures

Cheese School

Bitter Auto Sarcastic Answerer

My life gets really hectic sometimes. I have all kinds of people to ignore, situations that take time to avoid, and work that needs to be done that I need to find excuses for not doing.

Yanny vs. Laurel Friday Giftures

  Oh my gosh, seriously. An audio file is taking over the internet, going viral. An audio file. The last time an audio file was popular when back in the 1990's when computers were first using them. Last night my sister and I were educating my kids about VCR's, the internet not existing when we … Continue reading Yanny vs. Laurel Friday Giftures

Transform and Roll Out

I was a child of the 80's. Unlike most children of the 80's, I thought that decade sucked. There were a few good things about it. There was Back to the Future, and Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Run DMC, but for the most part, I didn't participate in most of the crappy movies, TV … Continue reading Transform and Roll Out

Sometimes I feel like…somebodies watching me Bitterness

When I was in high school, I worked at Target. I usually closed up shop around 11 pm, then drove home on the abandoned roads of Sioux Falls.

Maniac Monday – I bumped my head on the Fridge

Even though I am pretty clumsy, I have never broken a bone. (Not that I haven't tried.)

Bitter Part Extensions

  I've often talked about my desire to someday become a cyborg. Seriously, who wouldn't want to replace their creaky knees for something metal and mechanical that would only break down if you don't oil it enough. Replace this ailing shoulder with some hardcore vibrainium that is as hard as Captain America's sheild? Sounds good … Continue reading Bitter Part Extensions

This Dream is Sponsored By Little Caesars

When I was in junior high, I was already starting to think about my career, all because one of my stupid teachers told us we had to think about careers. My initial decision was advertising. Then, when I got to high school, I had to take a speech class which wasn't terrifrying at all. The … Continue reading This Dream is Sponsored By Little Caesars

Mr. Clean

My wife likes to torture me with the TV she watches. She loves to watch Hallmark and Lifetime network shows. Even worse though are Intervention. My least favorite of all is Hoarders. Hoarders sickens me. I am not a hoarder by any stretch of the imagination. That show makes me sick to my stomach. Not … Continue reading Mr. Clean
