It's Thursday and I feel like I should be posting something but I've been working almost straight on since last Thursday, so I didn't have a weekend to tidy out my brain and focus. I actually have two posts that I started but I haven't finished them, though I did indulge in some foolishness.
Today I mostly caught up on the hideous amorphous beast that ate my house this week. Then, I was bored but too tired to think very hard and I though of Pinterest. I've been curious about it for some time. I checked it several months ago and thought, "Invited?" I have to be invited? well screw that...but I decided to check again because I was curious...and I like stuff...and I can't fit anymore stuff in my house....so maybe I could store stuff there. So I went back. And I still had to be invited but I could beg to be invited like a total dorky drip who wants to go to the popular girls big party in 7th grade. Being familiar with being a dorky drip of a seventh grader I got down on my knees and cried and offered to do their algebra homework for the rest of the year and promised my firstborn child...(which Ha Ha..jokes on them if they touch that one) but anyway....
They said, Sure! You can come. If you're one of those Hip Popular kids on Facebook or Twitter.
well....The last place I want to be is hanging out with that wild bunch on Facebook. I have to consider my reputation if I want to get into that exclusive nursing home I'm shooting for someday, so...
I did something I always said I would never do. I reached out and took a hit of Twitter. I'm not following anyone and I'm not asking anyone to follow me right now. As my very first tweet said:
I'm only here for the Pinterest.
Which brings to mind another question.
If a Tweet Twits in an empty web and no one reads it, does it make a Twitter at all?
( I don't want to repeat the debacle of joining Google Plus and then being completely stumped with what to do with it but not wanting to delete it either. A few nice people connected to me there but I haven't done anything with it yet. If you are one of them please don't let it hurt your feelings. I have absolutely no one and nothing in my circles or otherwise). Anyway..
Then I skipped back over to Pinterest where they made me follow some total strangers before I could pin anything and I don't want to look because I don't know those people and God knows what they might be pinning in there! Then I made some boards and skipped to the Internet where I found and pinned a picture of the Smoky Mountains a Swiss Mountain Dog puppy and Mother Teresa.
You know, because I can only fit one Swissy in my house, there certainly isn't room for a mountain and getting Mother Teresa might be awkward.
I'd like to pin all my favorite books but I'm way too tired to look them up right now because Allison introduced me to finding and listing books on Goodreads awhile back and it has consumed the other 5 minutes of free time I have every week, though I love it. I guess I'll pin them eventually unless I forget my new password.
I have always rocked gently in the cocoon of my anti social media arrogance. Like that same dorky girl who starts wearing combat boots and dies her hair blue and gets a lip piercing in high school. I'm feeling so social now! Do you suppose it will make up for hiding from my new neighbors for the past two days? My favorite neighbors from the past 14 years next door moved away. I was just getting used to them ; ) They aren't officially moved in yet, just working on the house. Eventually I might show up with a plate of cookies and thrust them at them when they open the door and then run like hell. Life would be so much easier if I could just leave people little happy faces in the real world. Wait. I guess I can. It's called a smile.
FINE! I'll work on it. Who knows, maybe they're Pinteresting.
