The Jeopardy! Contestant

What's this? Two posts about Jeopardy! in a row? And this one is titled "The Jeopardy! Contest"... Does that mean I was chosen to become a contestant on my favorite game show? No... it does not. I was watching Jeopardy! last night, as I often do, and couldn't help but wonder how the internet was reacting to the … Continue reading The Jeopardy! Contestant

When Bloggers Meet

I've been blogging off and on (mostly on) since 2005. No, it hasn't all been here on The Confusing Middle or hosted by the good people at the WordPress. My first decade in the world of blogging involved a blog titled Carp Dime and was hosted over at Blogger. I'm pretty sure Carp Dime is … Continue reading When Bloggers Meet

Abducted In Plain Sight

Okay, I took the time to watch this documentary yesterday and... I just... WHAT?! Have you watched this thing yet? Ten minutes in and I can guarantee that the calmest among you will be screaming at your televisions. It is disturbing. It is disgusting. And it will leave you wondering how there can be people … Continue reading Abducted In Plain Sight

20 Years with Harry Potter

This morning, I was perusing the old Twitter feed and came across this tweet from J.K. Rowling... 20 years ago? How can that be? I guess it makes sense. I graduated from Hogwarts high school 20 years ago. And according to J.K.'s timeline, the Battle of Hogwarts happened in 1998. Harry Potter and I are … Continue reading 20 Years with Harry Potter

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

A Social Media Rant

Maybe it's something in the water. Over the last few days, I've been reading some pretty good rants on several blogs I follow. There's nothing wrong with a good rant every now and then. I enjoy having a rant from time to time. This is gonna be one of them. This rant is inspired by … Continue reading A Social Media Rant

#DescribeYourselfin3FictionalCharacters

Jess, over at You're Fine did a post about this hashtag phenomenon she came across on Twitter the other day. I'm sorry to say, I missed out on the Twitter trend. I'm not sure I should admit that, seeing as how my new job requires me to constantly keep my finger on the pulse of … Continue reading #DescribeYourselfin3FictionalCharacters
