The REAL History of Thanksgiving

I've always been an advocate of short work weeks. I've been pushing my company really hard to go to the 1-day work week for some time. So far, so bad. We did recently reach a compromise of me keeping me job by working 5 days a week. Don't worry though. They are starting to crack. … Continue reading The REAL History of Thanksgiving

Sports Torture BFG’s

Last Friday, I pretended I was sick so I could leave work early. Normally when I pretend I'm sick I just go home and play video games and sleep on the couch. But this time, it was for unselfish reasons. Instead of being lazy, I actually intentionally decided to go outside and sit in the … Continue reading Sports Torture BFG’s

The Benefits of Following a Bitter Blogger

At my last count there were 8 billion, 400 million, 538 thousand, 436 people on earth at this very moment. Oh shoot, we just lost a few. And some crying kids were just born. Dang it! That throws off my count. Don't worry, I'll get the final count by the end of this blog. But … Continue reading The Benefits of Following a Bitter Blogger

7 Deadly Sins

It's kind of hilarious that some people claim that I'm not a writer. It's true that my pièce de résistance, my epic masterpiece of writing, has never been published, or that I've even written the second draft yet. I've never even had a piece of writing published except for one short story in a magazine … Continue reading 7 Deadly Sins

Shape Shifting Bitter Friday Giftures

As you probably know, someday this blog will be made into a book. As such, I should be like all the diligent, disciplined and enthusiastic writers working on NaNoWriMo, but as we all know, writing a novel in November is ridiculous. Whoever decided that November is the month we should all be writing the first … Continue reading Shape Shifting Bitter Friday Giftures

Driving you up the paywall BFG’s

As a sign of appreciation for feeding her for 18 years, and allowing her to stay rent-free in our house, my daughter abandoned us to go to college. Pretty great gesture if you ask me. Then she decided that she didn't want to go to college right across the freeway from us so she could … Continue reading Driving you up the paywall BFG’s

Picking Up the Pieces

For some stupid reason, every morning before I go to work, I watch the news. It's the local news, so all they talk about is who got murdered, what accidents happened and the stupid weather. But today, they were so excited because they discovered and overnight four-alarm apartment fire to feature as breaking news. They … Continue reading Picking Up the Pieces

Bitter Reviews of BBB

I used to watch movies in person all the time, because I love paying for disappointment in person. Alright that isn't the real reason. The real reason is that I used to be a hopelessly single guy that had no social life or prospects, so I would go to them to drown out the loneliness. … Continue reading Bitter Reviews of BBB

Supercut Bitterness

I've done everything for my oldest and only daughter. I attended her daddy daughter dances for years (playing the dad part of the duo), bought her closets full of clothes that she meticulously kept the tags on for years, and allowed her to live rent-free for years. I even got her a job in the … Continue reading Supercut Bitterness

Blog Paralysis BFG’s

I know I keep talking about my trip to Scotland, but it's mostly because I need to brag that I got to go there, and you didn't. Mostly though, it was a once-in-a-lifetime trip that I will never be able to afford to go to again. Being there was just so unique because my great-great-great … Continue reading Blog Paralysis BFG’s

Middle Aged Suckery BFG’s

Do you remember that stupid game your teachers made you play when you were a kid, where the teacher tells one kid a secret and then you had to tell the next person the thing they said? At the end, the last person would try to say the thing that the first person said, and … Continue reading Middle Aged Suckery BFG’s

Nobody is looking at you BFG’s

I haven't progressed much since my teen years. Just like I did in my teens, I still play video games, I still wear jeans and shorts (and jean shorts(jorts)), and still also have a driver's license just like I did as a teen. As the old expression goes, "The more things change, the more things … Continue reading Nobody is looking at you BFG’s

Taking over the media

When I was in high school, I was a big fan of not having friends. It was mostly my toxic personality, my metal mouthed Resting Bitter Face, and my massive introversion complex that allowed to skate by without friends for the most part. Unfortunately, one guy tricked me into being his friend by bribing me … Continue reading Taking over the media

With Great Power Outages, Comes Great Irritability

If you've ever seen a Spiderman movie or read any of his comics, congratulations, you are just like everyone else. It's only the most done franchise ever (besides Batman). Just last year, we had three different Spidey's from three different generations in one movie. The Tobey Maguire era for oldies like me, Andrew Garfield for … Continue reading With Great Power Outages, Comes Great Irritability

Defending My Territory

I was just looking at some photos of Scotland this morning. They really took me on a stroll down memory lane. My favorite memory of Scotland? That I wasn't at work, and I wasn't writing a stupid blog post that would get 15 views and 25 likes. Those were some pretty great memories. If only … Continue reading Defending My Territory

Getting the Job I really Want Bitterness

When I first started my job at a radio company, they had a reader board above the conference room. One of ladies in my department had just celebrated her 15 years there. I had a few reactions to that. My first reaction was, "How could anyone have the endurance to last 15 years at a … Continue reading Getting the Job I really Want Bitterness
