This is a very pinteresting blog

I briefly mentioned Pinterest on my last post so I guess I'll just make this one part of a 2 part series on the phenomenon that is Pinterest. Like many of you, I'm on it. I have been for a while now, falling in love with it almost instantly sometime early this year because of what else? Food. I love, love, love the recipe ideas I've been getting from there because let's face it, pictures of food are GOOD. I've found some great new recipes, too. Win.

Then my love quickly faded, as it usually does, because my brain has exactly two functions regarding anything, ever: "OH MY GOD I MUST DO THIS THING ALL THE TIME! MORE MORE MORE!" and "Eh, whatever." This can best be illustrated by the love affairs I have with iPhone games. I find it, love it day and night, create 50 million games at a time, avoid all aspects of my life to play it and then just as suddenly as my love for it blossomed I will turn my back on it faster than you can play Qi on Words with Friends on a triple Q. (Right now I'm whoring myself out to Jewels with Buddies because I got tired of Matching with Friends, Draw Something, Scramble, Poker, Words with Friends and my short-lived obsessions with Chess with Friends and Hanging with Friends.)

Anyway, I still go back to Pinterest once a week or so to inspire my kitchen escapades and occasionally fantasize about my dream kitchen and make virtual Post It notes about things I'll never do, places I'll never go, parties I'll never throw and clothes I'll never wear--but the problem is it's littered with 2 categories of other things:

1. This is amazing. How could I have lived this long not knowing this?

Example: Put a wooden spoon over a pot of boiling pasta and it will not spill over. Yes, it works! My smooth-surfaced cooktop thanks you, Pinterest.


2. Are you fucking kidding me? Why would anyone a) think of this? b) execute this? c) have nothing better to do in life than try this? d) see that someone else did this and then want to do it too?

Obviously, since I'm me, we'll be discussing category #2 in my Top 4 Stupid Pinterest Things That I'm Sure Would Be Much More But This Is All I Can Think Of Right Now Off The Top Of My Head:

1. Crockpot Overkill.
Did you know you can make bread in a Crockpot?
Did you know you can make cake in a Crockpot?
Did you know you can make corn and baked potatoes in a Crockpot?
Did you know you can spend $12 and feed a family of 6 for 8 months by using nothing but your Crockpot, a bag of Cheerios and a can of Cream of Chicken soup?
Did you know you can put your 2002 Nokia flip phone in a Crockpot, add some glitter and a tube of caulk and in 12 hours you'll have an iPhone?
Did you know you can...WE GET IT, PINTEREST! Where's God? Maybe we can get him to cry a tear into a Crockpot for the 2nd coming of Jesus in 6-8 hours on Low.

2. DIY/Crafty Nonsense:
Look, I love and appreciate a good project and I am a little crafty myself, so there are some things I find simply adorable. But not stuff like this:

50735933271696786_4JPDdSFE_c  129689664238963321_A1L4BSUX

Voila? Voila! You tied an ugly shirt around your waist! My, my you should go to design school! I mean wtf? Apparently there's an epidemic of women out there who can't afford clothes and must resort to raiding their boyfriend's closets and transforming his old rags into shitty clothing. The first girl looks like someone I'd see doing the walk of shame down Fraternity Row when I was in college and the second one just looks like a twit with a shirt around her waist, like she got her period in white shorts. Do us all a favor and just go to Target.

3. Stuff that makes me realize what a shitty mother I am because I would never take the time to do any of this:

43276846390174482_PJNIYRd9_b Well isn't that just totes adorbs? Yeah. My kids get their oatmeal in a bowl. Without a fruit worm. Or a cheese sun.

First of all, I would spend 6 hours making this sandwich and then my kids would say "Eww. What's that green stuff? and is that WHITE cheese? Gross." and then they wouldn't eat it, I'd make PB&J on white bread with no crust, the dog would steal it off the table when nobody was looking and I'd end up feeling like a failure even if I DID make it, so no Mater sammiches here.

284641638919322692_jaFL9Oqg_b "Make a onesie out of an old T-shirt!" Again with the old T-shirts?

4. Just...why?

"Make brownies in egg shells!"  ...Orrrrr you could just make brownies in a pan, yanno, because those didn't come out of a chicken's ass.

I whole heartily agree
I am also on Pinterest. I am glad there are people out there that are artsy and have the ability to communicate and replicate. I am not really one of them, but I aspire to be "Pintresty". Maybe when I have more time, or I get stuck with no pants, I can take time to review the Bazillion of things on their site. If I were on a desert island, pinterest would be useful- for now- I am happily a casual observer.
PS - please take your turn at Words with Friends!!! : D

I'll have to try that wooden spoon tip! My glass top stove will thank you for sharing!! Does it work with rice too (that ALWAYS boils over and is horrible for my stove top)--well if I cook rice without the lid anyway?

I'm still avoiding Pinterest because I'm not ready to lose more valuable writing time--and I know I would be sucked into the fun and spend WAY too much time there.

So I'll just sit back and let you share tips and such from Pinterest with me. ;-)

But yeah, I'll pass on the egg brownies and the shirt-turned-alternate-form-of-clothing, thank you very much.

锘縍ight Selection for the Best Attention

When shopping around for your prom dress, you have to pay great attention to your unique body structure; you may not have go all out to select exactly the style you saw on a prom dress model in a prom magazine since it may not suit your perfectly. Allow your selection of prom dress to be influenced by your body structure and hence go for the most suited gown or dress for your prom night. Prom dresses will add to the specialty of your prom night.

Now, if your body figure is such that has fewer curves, a sheath fitted style may be just perfect for you. You can also try out an A-line dress if you want to look somewhat daring on your special night. Perhaps your figure is on the slender side; a prom dress with an A-line skirt will compliment your slender figure and also supply the illusion of added curves. It may not be pleasing to behold if you go for halter style dresses or strapless dresses for your very skinny figure.

Those with plump and somewhat protruding tummy can tuck in their tummies and provide a flattened appearance by opting for empire style waist style of dresses; these styles will provide a more slender as well as long look and the illusion of a flattened tummy. Also, for the purpose of tucking in your tummy (if you are on the plump-mid section), a dress with a corset-type bodice will take away concentration from the tummy and direct it to the bust area. The young girls with big tummies should avoid princess style prom dresses and also the sheaths style as well as Basque waist gowns; horizontal stripes and sashes should also be avoided.

For young girls with heavy arms, off-shoulder necklines as well as short sleeves will be the perfect styles to conceal your heavy arms. You can also go for see-through lacey sleeves in order to redirect attention from your arms to a more adorable part of your body. You can also direct attention away from your big arms to the bust area by choosing sweetheart necklines; and make sure you stay away from styles such as spaghetti straps, sleeveless and strapless, since they focus attention more on your arm region. A more creative way to hide your large arms is to get a prom jacket or a wrap on for size.

Perhaps your dress size is a plus size, this should not constitute any concern to you since the present day prom dresses make provision for all sizes; besides, you will find such styles that will help conceal your large sized body as well as enhance your good features. You can hide your backside by going for a full-skirted dress or a strapless ball gown. Alternatively, a flared skirt will work to enhance your slim waistline. And go more for a fitted bodice like corset style in order to get attention upward.

Ensure that your correct measurement is taken if you are not the one making the shopping for your dress. You can compare Faviana dresses and Sherri Hill prom dresses as well as other top designers in order to settle for what is best suited for your unique figure. [url=]cheap wedding dresses[/url]
