My time is very valuable. I don't have time to read the news. That's why I am so glad I can rely on Google Trends to show me the talking points I need to get through my day and still be on top of today's news. Trends are news, you know, and are just as disposable as facts! I don't have time to click on the actual links to whatever is trending at the moment, but I've pretty much seen it all so reading is not necessary when one has the life experience to make an educated guess.
A quick look at the Google trends this morning reveals that what important today is:
Woods - yes, especially if your name is Red Riding Hood and you're trying to avoid a Big Bad Wolf.
Olympic Men's Figure Skating - because regular guys on ice is not pretty.
Elton John Jesus- I want one of these for the dashboard of my car. I hope they make one in the Donald Duck suit.
Mitt Romney - Thinks all Big Boy restaurants are paying tribute to him.
Fed Discount Rate- I don't know who ate it.
CPI- Cootie Protection Insurance? Very important for the up and coming first grader.
CPAC- His last CD was off the chain!
Walgreens - there's one on every corner directly across the street from CVS.
Evan Lysacek - Now appearing in a movie/reality show/sporting event on tv most likely in a vampire costume.
Simon Cowell - Just think Snidely Whiplash without the rocking handlebar moustache and top hat, but with all the dastardliness.
Now just drop these topics into your conversation for the next few hours and you'll be cutting edge!
