#trendingontwitter: Brangelina, TV and Politics


I'm back with another round up of hashtags that caught my eye this week. If you aren't already following me on Twitter, come join the fun.

#emmys2016 - Game of Thrones was a big time winner, but I was really sad that one of the ladies didn't edge out Maggie Smith. We only watched during commercial breaks in the Packers vs. Vikings game, but we saw a few great speeches. Here is a round up from the LA Times that includes our favorites. I don't care at all about the dresses. Sorry, but fashion isn't really my forte.

#Brangelinabreakup - So I think the Post went too far with this cover. BUT, if you read the Post or even see it in stores, than you know they go too far often. While this split doesn't really surprise me, I feel bad for the kids. Divorce sucks and it probably sucks worse for celebrities who get all their dirty laundry (fake and real) spread across the covers of all the magazines. And then there's Jennifer Aniston (who I love) getting dragged into this... I don't get it.




#TrumpACandy - Oh Donald Jr. Your comments about the Syrian refugee crisis were horrible. What I do appreciate is that Tweeters around the world can turn a disgusting comment into a black hole of hashtag stalking. Some of the tweets on this hashtag were very creative. I suggest looking through them if you need a laugh... but some are very mean so you've been warned.

I love fall and so do all the people on Twitter. It is officially the first day of fall. It's the season that brings back the disgusting Pumpkin Spice lattes and plaid scarves and boots. I'm a big fan of the temperatures and Oktoberfest celebrations. Plus, football is back in full swing.

#thisisus - Of all of the new Fall TV shows, this one showed up on my social media more than anything else. I'm happy I have Hulu because I'm going to check it out this weekend. Are there any other awesome new shows?

#macarthur - Read this article for more information, but I'm excited to learn more about the winners this year. I also like that the foundation doesn't love that it's been nicknamed the "genius" grant.

I have also been reading lots of news stories about Charlotte and Tulsa this week. I'm finding it impossible to even think of the right words to write here... especially in the same post as Brangelina's breakup. So please just spread love and respect and kindness. I'm begging you.

Hope you are enjoying your first day of fall. Happy tweeting.

  1. I caught the pilot of This is Us on hulu last night. I liked it.

    I don't even know where to begin. #skittles

    LOL, also not a fan of pumpkin spice lattes or any flavored coffee anymore but I do love fall and the rest of the stuff it brings with it.

  2. I've heard This Is Us was really good. I'll probably keep an eye on it to see if it keeps getting better! I don't like pumpkin spice lattes, either, and I'm not really a coffee drinker at all.

  3. I watched This Is Us - it was what you expect. Somewhat sappy, but decent with characters you may not mind watching grow.

  4. Netflix has a new show called Luke Cage and it looks really good!
