Trumpery?

What do snow-laden trees, Dersu Uzala, MRIs, CSS, and oil leaks have in common? Nothing--just so many not so random things I have been thinking about in the last few days. 3 storms hitting Denver, our next movie on Netflix that our kids got us a subscription to, a test I'll have next week, hours of tedious web design, and my son's VW bug which just got "fixed", would be the longer string of phrases. Imagine how many topics and thoughts run through our minds daily. Would it be fascinating or boring to have it all logged for review? If we could capture it would it be trumpery (*vocabulary from this week on my word a day calendar) or treasure? Sometimes I would like to be able to clear my mental cache of unnecessary data. Does all this folderol keep me from sleeping?

*trumpery- worthless nonsense; trivial or useless articles: junk

And I thought you were speaking of the "trumpery" involving the three celebrities fighting on the national news. Now that is pure trumpery.

Your concerns are not trumpery, but I bet they are keeping you up at night. That happens when we think we can impact the outcome. Sometimes we can. Other times we have to hand it over and Someone Else deal with it.
