Random

Do you do Pinterest?  It's a great use for any spare time you may have.  It will suck it all up like a virtual vacuum cleaner and then start to suck in the time designated for the important things in life--like checking your e-mail and catching up with blogging pals--or like going outside and participating in real life.

It's cheap entertainment.  Cheap entertainment can be a good thing.  I mean, it doesn't have to mean  that life is pathetic and sad.  Life is what we make of it, afterall.

This morning I came across a Pin: A list, 10 Random Acts of Kindness for the Christmas Season.  Can you make a list of random acts to perform?  This cracked me up.  I giggled about it all morning long.

I go for cheap entertainment and I am quite easily amused.

Speaking of being amused, I saw/heard this (Jesus Shaves) on Facebook -- not quite the compelling time vacuum as Pinterest, but I laughed until tears were flowing down my face.

Well, laughter has some identified health benefits.  So does dark chocolate.  I think I will just skip my exercise walk to sit here and watch Youtube videos and eat chocolate.  It's all part of my healthy lifestyle.

  1. I have never quite been able to figure out what to do with Pinterest. I have looked at it a couple of times but my heart was not pierced by a flaming pin.

    1. Aw, that is the explanation. My heart has been pierced by a flaming pin...or two...of a thousand...

  2. I know a lot of people who use, love and value Pinterest. I am not one of those people. I don't have an account because I can't keep the housework done as it is. I know it would suck me in. My daughter keeps telling me I must come over to the Dark Side. Not yet.

    1. Stay strong. You are wise...although you would find lots of fun things for Amara time.

  3. I AM a Pinterest addict, and as such, I am lured into it on an almost daily basis. I've made a few boards, and I get email reminders of ones I should check. Yes, I am a Pin Addict!
    One of the funniest things I've read online recently is the one about parents trying to text and not knowing what the abbreviations stand for. I had tears rolling down my face! Such is my life! [sigh...]

    1. Not knowing the language is why I don't text much.

  4. Your plan will work for the short term. I don't do much with Pinterest. I forget about it. My granddaughter is so into it. She is only twelve, but she loves it. She made me a Christmas gift from something she saw on Pinterest. I thought that was really cute.

    1. I think it is an online file system for ideas and inspirations.

  5. I love Pinterest! As a kid catalogs were my favorite toys.... really, I poured over those catalogs daily furnishing my pretend house and clothing my pretend family. (remember the Sears Big Book and the Christmas Catalog, Montgomery Ward, Spiegel?) Pinterest is where I grow my pretend garden, keep my pretend turquoise jewelry and keep recipes I will probably never cook, but it entertains me and de-stresses me .... and something free that does those two things? Perfect! :)

  7. Pinterest makes me think of all those magazine recipes I cut our and never used or all those room designs and window treatment photos that sit somewhere. I think I have to avoid it.

  8. I have never done Pinterest, as I don't know how it works. But, I do notice people using it for certain food recipes on my blog. It's right there in my blog stats.

  9. I don't "pin". I don't need a another time sucking activity. I still have to have time to walk off my dark chocolate. :-)

  10. Haven't taken the plunge yet and haven't the foggiest how it works.. Probably as well, I have a hard time keeping up with blogging.
