I’ve been in a Deep Thoughts kind of mood lately. I’m sure there will be a lot of readers out there who have no idea what I’m talking about. I’m referring to Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey. Deep Thoughts were a common segment found on Saturday Night Live back in the 90’s. They’re the kind of thing that you either think are hilarious … Continue reading And Now…
Question of the Week #142
What, if anything, is too serious to be joked about? More and more each day, it seems. I'm not saying it's wrong to be politically correct. I'm not necessarily saying it's right, either. It's just funny how you can look back at movies or TV shows that were made 20, even 10 years ago and … Continue reading Question of the Week #142
The Cruelest Joke
You know that feeling? The one where you wake up at 3AM and just know that you're about to be in some sort of intestinal distress? Just me? Okay... well, it's not a comfortable feeling. It's the kind of thing where it feels like things inside your gut are doing flips, even though you know … Continue reading The Cruelest Joke
That Time I Live-Tweeted The Little Mermaid
I kind of love the Timehop app. It lets me look back at the things that I've tweeted and posted to Facebook in years past and reminds me of how hilarious I am. Yes, I do laugh at my own jokes. Deal with it. Anyway, today, Timehop reminded me that, a year ago, I live-tweeted … Continue reading That Time I Live-Tweeted The Little Mermaid

Why does … Continue reading Miss Hannigan
Did I Mention I Moved?
Kids, it occurs to me that, since I've come back from my self-imposed blogging hiatus, I have not shared the details of my recent move. Seems like that would be an important topic to blog about, seeing as how I used the move as an excuse to put off my return to blogging. Even though, … Continue reading Did I Mention I Moved?
Hard Hat Convention
Driving home around lunchtime yesterday, I came across a sign letting me know that someone was doing some utility work up the road. It wasn't long before I saw where the work was taking place. Except, at first, I didn't see anyone doing any work. I just saw roughly 15 people in hard hats leaning … Continue reading Hard Hat Convention
Kids, welcome to my 1,001st blog post here on The Confusing Middle. Yesterday, after my Rewatching Buffy post was published, I got a notification from WordPress saying that I had posted exactly 1,000 on this here blog. I feel like there should be more fanfare. I'm sure you're sitting in your seat beginning a slow … Continue reading 1,001 Posts
The Silverfish Scenario
Ugh... Silverfish... Is there a more disgusting thing in all of creation? Probably. But, at the moment, I'm not capable of thinking of one. You know what a silverfish is, right? They're those bugs that basically look like pocket sized alien monsters. I'm sorry, something with that many legs is just unnatural. Last night, prior … Continue reading The Silverfish Scenario
