Is this how I want to spend the whatever time I have left?
The last few weeks, I have been wasting hours and hours of time on this website called Pinterest. I read about it in the local paper (damn them!) and I've been hooked ever since.
You can find pictures of just about anything there, but the stuff I like the most are vintage items from the 1930s-1970s. It's all the stuff my grandmas and great grandmas and mom had when I was growing up. Some of the things were passed on to me and I still have them, and other items were in my possession for awhile and I sold them. I'm not sure I'll ever be able to sell anything again because I wish I had kept everything.
The vast majority of the stuff I remember has gone on to that great garbage dump in the sky.
Anyway, I joined the website and I've been pinning pictures of some of the stuff I remember. I'm becoming obsessive about it. It's like I'm desperately trying to preserve my memories so there'll still be out there in the net-iverse when I'm gone.
The picture above is a Skooter doll. I had one, same bikini and all, but mine had red hair. I also had a Skipper doll.
