Best Time of the Year Bitter Friday Giftures

  This week is my favorite of the year. Many people love December and all its holidays. Others love Thanksgiving and the chance to eat lots of food, shop and be with family. Others love Valentine's Day (just kidding, no one loves Valentine's Day, ironically). Some love the summertime for sun, sand, good weather and … Continue reading Best Time of the Year Bitter Friday Giftures

Journey Friday Giftures

  Lately, I've been taking a lot of journeys. I went on a 10 state 2000+ journey across the southern United States. This week I've been trying to walk 50 K total for Pokemon Go.

Bitter Road Trip Friday Giftures

  There is something about driving across the country in a 26 foot Uhaul trailer that makes you understand why truckers only like to stop at truck stops and not little gas stations. When your trailer doesn't turn on a dime like your car, you kind of have to rethink how to drive things. Also, … Continue reading Bitter Road Trip Friday Giftures

Snapping the Bitterverse Friday Giftures

As we all know Thanos snapped half the universe in Avengers Infinity War. It was a bad time in the universe what with half the people dying, but he didn't realize all the other things he snapped. He didn't realize that he also snapped my sanity as well. I probably thought things were fine last … Continue reading Snapping the Bitterverse Friday Giftures

Cancellation Bitter Friday Giftures

  Baseball is kind of a weird sport. The majors actually start in late March, which is technically spring, in some places, but in places like Chicago, and Minnesota and Milwaukee (which all have major league teams) not so much every year. Baseball depends on not having weather issues. Well, in the little leagues, where … Continue reading Cancellation Bitter Friday Giftures

Baseball Bitter Friday Giftures

  When I was growing up, baseball was my favorite sport...until I got hit in the gut with a fastball and had a fear of a little tiny ball going 60-100 miles an hour speeding right at me. I also realized that baseball was a lot of just standing around watching a pitcher throw to … Continue reading Baseball Bitter Friday Giftures

Cloning Dogs Bitter Friday Giftures

  My wife just popped in and told me that people have way too much money. Obviously, I agreed and told her that we were on the opposite end of the scale, IE, we have way too little. I then asked her why she said that, and she said that some family paid $50,000 to … Continue reading Cloning Dogs Bitter Friday Giftures

April Foolish Bitter Friday Giftures

  If you guys have followed the blog for a while, you probably know that I have always done an April Fools joke every year.

I did not ever get a tweet from … Continue reading April Foolish Bitter Friday Giftures

Can I play your phone Bitter Friday Giftures

  My son is 11 and he already makes me think that he will work for the United Nations someday. He is always negotiating high powered contracts and he is relentless. For instance, we recently lost Xbox Live Gold, which allows you to play games with your friend over Xbox. I decided that as much … Continue reading Can I play your phone Bitter Friday Giftures

Where is the ALL THE STUFF OREO’S Bitter Friday Giftures

  There are a lot of myths out there. Dementors, Bigfoot, and the Loch Ness Monster. I think people love myths because they love the mythtery of the unknown. There are a lot of unexplained things in this world, like Madea. The most recent myth that I have found is the Oreo's ALL THE STUFF … Continue reading Where is the ALL THE STUFF OREO’S Bitter Friday Giftures

New Kids on the Block Bitter Friday Giftures

  In the background, I'm listening to the New Kids on the Block doing their best to make a comeback. I don't deny old people trying to make a comeback as I'm attempting to do right now, but at least they need to rebrand and call themselves Older Dudes on the Clock or something. One … Continue reading New Kids on the Block Bitter Friday Giftures

Building a Bitter Mousetrap Friday Giftures

  They say you have to build a bitter mousetrap in order to catch mice. Well, in our last home it didn't seem to work, because they just kept coming back. Sometimes, I think you just need to build more mousetraps. I guess they were just attracted to our food or something. It's not like … Continue reading Building a Bitter Mousetrap Friday Giftures

Marching into Bitter Friday Giftures

  I don't know about all of you, but February is both way too short and way too long.

I … Continue reading Marching into Bitter Friday Giftures

BitterTine’s Day Bitter Friday Giftures

  I was talking to my wife the other day and I was comparing the days of the week to the months of the year. For the most part, it makes sense. January is definitely like Monday.

Movie Trending Bitter Friday Giftures

I can think of a few examples, and you probably can too if you think hard enough. Like when … Continue reading Movie Trending Bitter Friday Giftures

Random Doesn’t Equal Funny

According to my daughter, random doesn't equal funny. Although according to her, she also thinks puns aren't funny. Actually, I think she also just thinks I'm not funny. Yeah, that is it. That wasn't always true though. She used to laugh when I played Peek-A-Boo. I guess the older you get, the less you think … Continue reading Random Doesn’t Equal Funny
