LOST...That About Sums It Up

I opened my browser to write my post this evening. Yahoo is my homepage. And on the right-hand side of the page, I see:


1) Dunkin’ Donuts

2) Hole in Space

3) Evangeline Lilly

4) Kristin Chenoweth

5) Cynthia Nixon

6) David Cameron

7) Erica Blasberg

8) Tiger Woods

9) Rhinoceros Escape

10) Lost

Well, OK … hmm. Let me take a stab at this with no research. As I’ve said before, I’m not much for following the news. This could be interesting … or completely idiotic. I guess we’ll find out at the end.

  • I’m not sure why Dunkin’ Donuts is trending at #1. Good Coffee, but #1? Dang, there must be some big donut news.
  • Hole in Space? I actually wrote a blog on this.  Plus, The Man and I were watching the Discovery Channel last night. There were fascinating programs on Black Holes, The Universe, and Massive Stars. But were that many people watching Discovery Channel last night?
  • Evangeline Lilly. Who is that? Never heard of her.
  • Kristin Chenoweth. Who is that? I have heard of her. I don’t know why.
  • Cynthia Nixon. C’mon…I’m gay. Of course I’ve heard of her. Sex and the City. Did she finally come out? Or did she already do that? (I’m such a current events numbskull ... or just old and forgetful)
  • David Cameron. Who is that? (I really need to check these people out after I finish writing this … but I more than likely will not).
  • Erica Blasberg. Holy crap! I have no idea who these people are. I must be living in a cave.
  • Tiger Woods. WHY?! Is this story still interesting to people?!
  • Rhinoceros Escape. Now. Finally. A story I will investigate. (This could be tomorrow's post)
  • Lost. I haven’t seen even one episode. I watch American Idol (I’m a nerd). I watch the Simpsons (I’m an adolescent). I watch the Soup (I just have a huge crush on Mankini). 

So …how quickly we’ve established that I may be more than a little out of step with Pop Culture. And somehow my world will keep turning. American Idol comes on in 8 minutes.

See ya…

  1. I love my Soup, been a fan since the beginning when it was Talk Soup!Don't feel too bad, I don't know who a lot of those people are either & have never watched Lost.
