#trendingontwitter - Phil, 1D and Prison Tell-All's

It's time for another round of current events all determined by recent trending topics on Twitter.

#IowaCaucus - If you are American and not living under a rock, you have heard that the state of IA is kind of a big deal for the presidential candidates. Well, at least that's over now. If you have real questions about the election, skimm this.  There were quite a few trending hashtags relating to IA. #martinomalley2020 #itwasatiehilz #tedcruzlookslikedracula #donaldisasoreloser #richpeoplepretendingtoloveiowa Just kidding, none of those were really hashtags, but I don't really care to go super political today.

#groundhogday - Today is the today that a rodent (other than pizza rat) gets his moment of glory - and a glorious one it was. Although yesterday felt like spring already, so I'm hoping for at least a little more snow. I also learned that Staten Island has someone/thing named Chuck. This should not be a thing.

 #GreaseLive - I didn't watch it. Turns out, Grease isn't really the word for me. The movie is OK, but there are so many musicals I like more. It feels good to finally admit that. Sorry Danny.

#KimandAmber - I don't really understand much about this (I had to google it to find out it was Kim Kardashian), but I do know that Amber Rose used to date Kanye West... so I guess they should hate each other, but now they are hanging out together? I don't think I want to know or care.

#kayla - This week's winter storm with a cute name. It's sweeping the great plains and it also kept my husband home from his work travels this week.

#allthingsonedirection - Obviously that isn't the hashtag, but of the top 20 that I sorted through over the last week... at least 5 had to do with One Direction. I had to google those too to find out what it meant. Someone is in Bali and everyone cares. Someone else is possibly dating someone because they were in the same place twice in their lifetime? I can't even come up with something similar that happened when we were teenagers... help me?

#TurningTables - This is the book that Theresa Giudice is releasing soon about her time in Prison. I'll probably take one for the team and read it and then tell you whether or not you should do the same. I'm guessing it will not be a recommendation, but I think I need to at least try.

That's all for today folks. Happy Tuesday. Also, follow me on Twitter because that's what this whole post is about, right?


  1. I won't read her book, so I'll look forward to your thoughts on it!

  2. i don't understand a lot of these, especially the one direction thing. i love how the media assumes people are dating when they are in the same place once or twice. i'm surprised one direction are still around, actually.

  3. I think I'm with you on #GreaseLive. I liked the original, but it's not something I would ever rewatch multiple times and this show just didn't do it for me. I found myself focusing on the things I didn't like more than the actual show - like how you could see the production aspects (rafters/lights during the actual scenes) and I found it weird that the audience was so visible. Newsies is WAY better!! I do think Julianne Hough is way adorable and I'm jealous she's marrying Brooks Laich....

    I'm so happy to hear you're going to read Teresa's book! I would think this is something I'd want to read, but I'd prefer you to tell me one way or the other ;)


Thanks for reading my ramblings. It makes my heart happy.
