Today I came as close as I'll probably ever come to being an early adopter: I joined Pinterest. So many people I admire have been sucked into the Pinterest orbit that I thought I'd give it a try, though I really didn't understand the allure of "pinning" photos on the internet. What I learned: It's addicting.
Pinterest is like a video game for women: hours of mindless entertainment. (OK, for me, it's mindless; it may be highly engaging and cerebral for you.) You can search for lovely photos of foods, clothing, decor, etc., and start your own little bulletin board of things you love. I, being a lover of the world and places, decided to start pinboards of places I've been and places I'd like to go.
What's the purpose? I have no idea. But because I just spent three stinkin' hours on it, I'm going to show it to you to somehow redeem that time. So click here to make me feel better about my life.
And now I will become an early abandoner. I fear if I spend any more time on Pinterest, I'll be sucked into its vortex and forget that I have a baby upstairs laying on the floor crying and a husband who needs a kiss. Goodbye.
