(CNN) -- We get it: Multitasking over the weekend is hard. Only the truly skilled (and sober) can watch every viral cat video on the Internet while binge-watching "Gilmore Girls" on Netflix.

But coming into the office on Monday unprepared to chat about the Google exec's fall from space? Not an option.

To help you out, we've rounded up the top trending topics from the weekend in Vine form:

The Hindu holiday Diwali began Thursday and continued through the weekend. India's biggest and brightest national holiday inspires people around the globe to celebrate for five days with food, music and elaborate displays of lights and arts.

For the month of October, Viner Matt Swinsky and his "Vrille Vine Horror" cohorts Bryan Strickland and Patrick Fowler have been creating seven-second horror scenes. For more spooky inspiration, check out the hashtag #31daysofhorror.

Jim Carrey hosted "Saturday Night Live" for the third time. Reviews of his performance were mixed, but there's no doubt he led some hilarious scenes.
