Black Friday BFG’s

Most people think of Thanksgiving as a day for gratitude. Gratitude for family, for a place to live or gas that doesn't cost an arm, leg, shoulder or a kneecap. You think the turkey got carved up yesterday? Not as much as I did just trying to drive four hours to my parent's house. And … Continue reading Black Friday BFG’s

How to Appear Smart BFG

A little side note before we start. Yes, I'm the first person to do a side note at the beginning of a post. Excuuuse me. I'm extremely sorry about this. I've been typing Bitter Friday Giftures at the end of my titles for every Friday Giftures for 9 years now. No longer. It's simply going … Continue reading How to Appear Smart BFG

Bitter Tomatoes Friday Giftures

Last night I was on Tik Tok, which of course is where I get all my information and inspiration. I saw a Tik Tok yesterday that caught my attention. If you go on Tik Tok a lot like I do, you probably notice a lot of "couples comedy". A lot of them do pranks, which … Continue reading Bitter Tomatoes Friday Giftures

Epic Music Bitterness

I can count on my fingers and maybe one set of my toes the amount of extraordinary days I've had in my life. And even those extraordinary days had a lot of ordinaryness. My wedding day was pretty epic, but there were moments in the day where I was just taking a shower, or twiddling … Continue reading Epic Music Bitterness

Streaming Service Bitter Friday Giftures

Most of my workday is spent in a chair typing stuff on a computer. In the broad scope of things, it will end up being the most significant thing that someone has ever done for this world and for that, you should all be thanking me. The world would be a pretty cold, cruel place … Continue reading Streaming Service Bitter Friday Giftures

Star Girl’s Bitter Twist Ending

I've always been a bit of a contradictionist. When people liked Nike's, I wore Reeboks (maybe that was because my parents didn't want to pay for Nike's). I liked the San Antonio Spurs when everyone else in my area liked the Utah Jazz. My favorite contradiction of all is the getting up early, staying up … Continue reading Star Girl’s Bitter Twist Ending

Bitter Sisyphean Weekend Friday Giftures

As you know, my fitness program is less about walking or moving and more about "fitness whole pizza in mouth" kind of program. If moving around and getting fit was my default mode instead of resting for 8 hours at night, then I might like it. Unfortunately, I think my son has followed in my … Continue reading Bitter Sisyphean Weekend Friday Giftures

Difficulty Settings Bitter Friday Giftures

I used to be young. When I was that, I used to be really good at video games. There was this Mega Man game that I played once and really liked it and when screenshots of Mega Man 2 came out, I was just floored. At the time, they were bleeding edge graphics and I … Continue reading Difficulty Settings Bitter Friday Giftures

The Bitter Spouse that Nobody Likes

It's weird how when I was growing up, I didn't hear much about illnesses other than colds, flus and maybe typhoid fever. Probably because as a kid, I hadn't started a job, had kids myself, or learned about debt, taxes and death. But as soon as I started experiencing real stress, like making sure I … Continue reading The Bitter Spouse that Nobody Likes

Gas Station Bitter Friday Giftures

For all six of you who follow me regularly, you might have noticed that I was MIA last week. That's because I was sequestered by my company to go on a long business trip. You might think that it would have been a fun trip because I was flying first class with hot towel and … Continue reading Gas Station Bitter Friday Giftures

So Dramatic Bitter Friday Giftures

  My wife and I talk about the debate between nature vs. nurture a lot. Probably because we have one child that is biological and one who is adopted. Why do some personality things seem to pass down because of what our kids are around and what comes from their parent's direct DNA? Our kids … Continue reading So Dramatic Bitter Friday Giftures

Bitter Combo’s

I've played video games my whole life.  Sure the graphics were kind of cloudy in the beginning, but that's because my bitter vision hadn't quite developed as well as my lungs did that first day.  I remember doing a lot of screaming that day, but it was mostly because I couldn't even get past the first … Continue reading Bitter Combo’s

Bittermunity

Wanna know why I'm your least favorite blogger?  Because I'm around.  ALLLL the time.  I'm clogging up valuable space on the internet that you could be using for trees, or pictures of your kids, or YouTube.  All day on YouTube and the video would move so much faster, if it wasn't for this guy that … Continue reading Bittermunity

Frustration Friday Giftures

Nothing is more frustrating than expecting something good and getting something bad.  Like when you expect to skip a rock, but not only does the rock not skip, but you throw it way short and it richochets off a bigger rock and it bounces back and hits you in the knee and causes you to go to surgery.  Or when you expect … Continue reading Frustration Friday Giftures

Super BitterMan

The superhero genre is getting a little ridiculous.  There are some legit superhero movie stars out there that I'm fine with getting big time movies.  Guys like Superman, Batman, Iron Man, Wonder Woman, Wolverine, Spiderman and so forth.  These days, if there is a legit cool or recognizable hero out there, they will get a movie made … Continue reading Super BitterMan

Bitter Friday Gifture Cleanse

Things have happened this week.  Things that may never be unseen.  Happy people talking about music, and presents and having fun with their families.  It has been hard to look at, hard to see.  Well, I can't take it anymore.  I need to cleanse my mind of all this cheeriness. Well, it is Friday now and … Continue reading Bitter Friday Gifture Cleanse

Black Friday Giftures

    It's Black Friday and nothing says Black Friday like greed.  Black hearted rage, mixed with savings only 6 people will actually ever get, combined with angry, crazy people in a race for pole position for a chance at a ticket that may or may not get you into the room of a store … Continue reading Black Friday Giftures
