Don't you just love all the gadgets we have to entertain ourselves? It's probably healthier than getting angry because there are only two registers open. Here are a few things that I pinned while in said line.
At some point over the weekend, I remembered this orrery that we have in the backyard. I could not remember the name, so I went on an extended search to figure it out. Once I found it, I decided to pin a few; but where do you put some odd, random thing that you don't know anything about? Well, you make a board and you call it something like "armillary, orrery sphere." Then you pin 25. No, 50. (The line was really long.)
Of course, while you're there all sort of other cool stuff keeps interrupting your orrery search, so you toss in a few. But who wants a few where there are lots? No one. So you go for lots.
By now you're in it so deep that you keep pinning, even later at home. And you realize that you've found Pinterest gold, so you balance it out a little by adding in maps and globes, because the instruments are the reason you made it this far. You may as well map it out for everyone who follows, right? Besides you're close to 100 pins...
Finally, somehow, you pull yourself away from the now 200 pins and the insanity of searching, searching. (Oh wait, something new that's really old!) And you come back to the current century, despite how difficult it is to put away your technology. After all, you can't live in the past and use up all of your present because then you'll have no future. Or something like that. It's hard to reason when your head is this pinning!
