This is why I hate Pinterest, people.

Yes. There are cute pictures of dogs/babies/happy couples.
Yes. There are delicious-looking recipes that I would hardly dare try to replicate.
Yes. There are all manner of D-I-Y ideas to make me feel inadequate doing-it-myself.
Yes. There are lots of clever/sappy/geeky quotes.

But.
Then.
And.

There's a ton of stuff that just
a) irritates the fire out of me
b) is plain dumb
c) makes my eyes roll so much I get a headache.

Case in point:















This is a screen shot of three pins on my "This is Hipster Crap" board. Granted, some of the pins aren't hipster-ish, and most of it isn't crap. But it's all a little bit ridiculous.

The first black arrow points to my comment:
Dear Internet, Not everything has to be spray painted. xo, SB

Because, really. NOT EVERYTHING HAS TO BE SPRAY PAINTED!
Trash cans are for trash, not for cute.



The second black arrow points to my comment:
...as opposed to walking into a classroom as the tooth fairy, I guess.

Because, really, the entire caption makes me cry. Obvs, whoever pinned this watched too many video cassette tapes and listened to too few lessons.



The yellow lightning bolt, I have to admit, points to:
Awesome. 







The score so far....
Savannah: Eleventy-million
Pinterest: One








I still don't like your stupid face, Pinterest.

  2. Oh, Wren. Stop being your own hipster crap. If nothing else, I'd think you'd like all the Ryan Gosling hoopla. And don't forget how much you loved Hipster Ariel. Or when you thought my FB cover photo was cool and you PINNED IT!! You are not nearly as opposed to Pinterest as you want us all to believe.

    And I'm entitled to say this because I am the person who had to pick up the order you called in under the name Awesome. It wasn't awkward at all, really. Except it totally was.
