Pin Up

I have this thing about Pinterest. There is really no way that Pinterest should have any hold on me, but I need something distracting to do when I’m thinking about the things I should actually be doing. Also, I like fashion boards and pictures of horses. You can’t be serious all the time.

The vast majority of Pinterest is made up of those bits of the internet I’ve never actually met. Crafters. Knitters. Women who define themselves primarily as ‘[someone]’s Mommy’. Oh, and Jesus. Jesus is really big on Pinterest. In fact, Jesus is the only man I’ve ever seen on there.

Absolutely recommended reading: this blog, which is run by a hilarious and very courageous lady who actually tries the half-cocked ideas that populate the DIY and cooking categories on Pinterest. Mostly what I’ve learned from her is: don’t.
