on pinterest (and telephone gossip)

O, Pinterest, how I really am thoroughly enjoying you!

Some observations:

* I feel like I'm revealing so much more about myself through Pinterest, in such a cavalier* way (yes, I'm book-obsessed, which I know was obvious, but is now even more so; look at the sites I frequent most...frequently; you can definitely tell what fills my daydreams)

* I could spend something like a lifetime just pinning stuff

* Is it really okay to pin something from someone's site when they ask that you keep their words/images where they've been posted? Should I be asking permission of these other bloggers? Or, is this more like visual links that are clearly attributed?

* Why did it take me so long to realize that the site is posted on the pins for me, so I didn't have to keep typing in addresses (except for the etsy thing, wherein I still find that I like to post the name of the actual shop/seller)


* You should definitely look this word up; it has such a specific (archaic) meaning.


"Telephone Hour - Bye Bye Birdie (1995)"


"Musical Number: Bye Bye Birdie - Telephone Hour" of thirteen thousand other versions, no doubt.

I'm so glad you're loving it. So am I which is why I just had to share the obsession. :)

Seriously: first you turn me on to blogging and then Pinterest. It's a whole blessing-and-curse situation (except, I'm not sure I'd describe either as a blessing. Gift and a curse? Sure.) :)

I like the items you've listed from Etsy. I'd be curious to see your complete Etsy faves list.

I performed in Bye Bye Birdie in high school.

Really? (About Bye Bye Birdie.) What part did you play? I love finding out such cool things about friends.

I played one of the bit parts. My name was Rebecca Sue or something like that.
