I love Pinterest. Especially in the summer when I'm not working...Pinterest is like my best friend. Need a pick me up? Check out the "Funny" tab. Not sure what to wear? Check out "women's fashions." Bored? Browse through "Everything." And therein lies the dilemma...half the time I look at stuff on the Pinterest everything board and think "What was that person thinking?!" And I desperately want to pin each horrible and ridiculous pin I find...but I'm too afraid that my Pinterest followers will see it and think that I actually like the ridiculous pin and secretly judge me the way that I judge the original pinner. That being said, what better way to share of few of my least favorite pin-fads from the past week...
1.The dress-like-a-Disney-character fad:
Ok, I like Disney just as much as the next guy (well, probably not as much...but close). But for the life of me, I can't figure out why I would want to model my next outfit off of a fictional character living in the woods...I mean, she only wears primary colors:
2. The I-love-cartoons-so-much-that-I-got-one-tattooed-on-my-arm craze.
Really. Please know, this is not about tattoos. I like tattoos. I have tattoos (yes, plural. If you don't know about the second one, you probably don't really need to.) I don't even have a problem with visible tattoos...but can I just make one teeny-tiny suggestion...if you are going to get a tattoo, please consider location and subject matter carefully. Just because you love "A Charlie Brown Christmas" doesn't necessarily mean that you need to permanently ink yourself with a Snoopy or Woodstock picture.
Unless of course you are going into illustrating. But honestly, a cartoon character on your forearm? What if (and again, I say this without judgment) you one day outgrow cartoons? I mean, don't get me wrong, it probably won't happen, but let's say when your, oh I don't know...OUT OF COLLEGE? Just sayin'. And finally, my last irritating pin of the week...
3. This picture:
Be honest, what do you notice the most about this picture. I'm sure you are much more pure of heart than I am, but really, all I could see was the girl on top flipping me off...let's be honest, she could have totally used her pointer finger for this picture...and seriously, I was so focused on her finger, that I never even noticed the caption, which read "Oooh...arm bangles" Arm bangles? What arm bangles? I was so busy being annoyed by the top girl's middle finger that I didn't even notice the bangles...admit it...you didn't either.
Well, I guess that's all for today, I have to get back to scrolling through Pinterest, which, by the way should have less of the above and much more of the following:
Ryan Gosling Memes!! (I just had to ask my 13 year old what a meme was...this is it...I think)
And, of course, CUTE CAT PICS!! Awwww....
I mean, the recipes, and outfits, and workout ideas are nice too...
Have a great day!!
