You've got to be kidding me

There is a site I wanted to join called Pinterest. However, you have to wait to receive your invite.  Said invite arrived today, and guess what?  I can't join because I can only do so by logging in with my Facebook or Twitter accounts, two sites I refuse to have anything to do with.

argh!

Thanks, but no thanks.

How strange that the site you're interested in should tie its fortunes to those other two. I guess it saves them having to set up login stuff themselves, but still.

What kind of a site was/is it?

Yes, I find it highly bizarre.

It is a site where you can make inspiration "boards." You "pin" things to your boards that you are interested in. It makes nice groupings of ideas or projects that you can access at a glance (because you can have several boards like: food, sewing, photography, things that make me happy, etc.). You can also look at other people's boards for inspiration as well. It is better than bookmarks because you have actual photos of the things that interest you gathered all in one place/page.

Oh how crappy is that? And it sets my privacy issue alarm on high alert.

Yeah, they say they won't publish anything from your feed, but who cares about that? Why do you have to be part of another ball game to play on their court?

Twitter is actually a lot of fun.

Hehe. That it might be, but I already spend way too much time on the net.

Now you sound as evil as May, who is always trying to lure me over to FB. :P

I may have to have a presence there some day, too.

Oy oy oy. I'm losing you to the dark side. I hope the dark side doesn't mind sharing. ;)

Ha! I'll probably be on LJ until LJ or I expire. ;-D

Angel! Not evil. A-n-g-e-l...I don't know why you keep mixing those two words up.

Are you implying that I'm the Energizer Bunny of smart-mouthedness?

I am indeed. You are very astute. ;)

Is smart-mouthedness a real word? I personally love FB. Its the best way to keep with Katie. lol

Yeah, I grant that FB is a good way to keep in touch and reunite with those we've lost contact with, but I take umbrage at their use of my content and their privacy policy.

Hello - remember me? >;) I'm trying to catch up on events in LJ-land. S-l-o-w-l-y.

Don't know how relevant this might be for you. The site's in beta testing and it will become a paid subscription site in future (though they claim there will always a free entry level option) but I thought it looked interesting.

That does look interesting. Have you played around on it?

No! Though I keep meaning to. lol.

I'm hopeless - I always fall for the 'Ooh, shiny!' and then don't do anything with it. I'd be the woman with wardrobes full of unworn, fabulous clothes - if I was the kind of woman who could be bothered to go shopping for them.
