I’ve always maintained Pinterest is a window into the female mind.

blatantblue on November 1, 2012 at 12:44 PM

Oh and whenever I need a dinner idea, I go onto Pinterest.

blatantblue on November 1, 2012 at 12:44 PM

ROFLMAO

Katfish on November 1, 2012 at 12:45 PM

MKH: men want her, women want to be her. Funny and smart, so few of us.

You catch teh ghey?

HotAirian on November 1, 2012 at 12:48 PM

This is something the Biden family might think about. Getting Joe out of the public eye and in a treatment program for Screwballitis

pat on November 1, 2012 at 12:48 PM

Hahahahahaha. Nice.

Abby Adams on November 1, 2012 at 12:49 PM

Love the low-key delivery. Well done.

John the Libertarian on November 1, 2012 at 12:50 PM

MKH — That’s great.. especially if you know someone who does that. My wife’s side of the family loves the Pinterest, and the crafting. Together they make a Frankenstorm of mason jars, half-done cross-stitch, and scarves. My girls are even doing that now.

Nethicus on November 1, 2012 at 12:50 PM

On this side of the country, if they’re young and hot, they’re called Betties. When they’re old and not, then they’re called biddies.

John the Libertarian on November 1, 2012 at 12:51 PM

Why’s everyone hatin’ on a G?

GO LOOK! You know how many badass dinner ideas are on that website?

blatantblue on November 1, 2012 at 12:52 PM

A BeDazzler? If it makes you feel any better, I rearranged my spice cabinet with little step shelves and a lazy susan and it still isn’t going to work. And I’m a sucker for embroidery as long as I’m not doing it.

Cindy Munford on November 1, 2012 at 12:52 PM

Hahaha.

Ham Rulz.

I love you.

That was pinsane.

SparkPlug on November 1, 2012 at 12:52 PM

Very funny MKH. Last night my neighbor told me (with a straight face) she is going to a scrap booking retreat this weekend. Was very difficult for me to keep from laughing. But, to each his own I guess. Could be worse, she could be campaigning for Hussein.

Brat on November 1, 2012 at 12:53 PM

“Blue Balls” I laughed the whole way through. MKH hits another out of the park. How long before we see a “Where Are They Now”?

multiuseless on November 1, 2012 at 12:56 PM

Tell all your friends to watch this video.

I love the Ham girl.

SparkPlug on November 1, 2012 at 12:56 PM

I wondered what Britt was doing after she left JAG.
You guys are great!!

bettycooper on November 1, 2012 at 12:56 PM

Sigh… I guess I just don’t get out enough… I have no clue what Pinterest is, or what MKH is making fun of… (insert embarrassed emocon here)

SWalker on November 1, 2012 at 12:56 PM

MKH–that was funny. Thankfully I don’t have this problem.

conservative pilgrim on November 1, 2012 at 12:56 PM

blatantblue on November 1, 2012 at 12:52 PM

It’s true, I like the sites where I can put in the ingredients I have instead of trip to the store to buy stuff I’ll never use again.

Cindy Munford on November 1, 2012 at 12:58 PM

Ha! “Puttin’ a pin in that!”

“badass dinner ideas”

One word does not fit with the others. ;)

lorien1973 on November 1, 2012 at 12:58 PM

I need to send this to my sister; she’s an addict. I started on Pinterest and a month later I joined Twitter…Twitter is winning and I have not had time to Pinterest anything since :-)

I might need a Twitter intervention.

HawaiiLwyr on November 1, 2012 at 12:59 PM

It was touching how proudly “Amanda” showed off her blue Balls.

Happy Nomad on November 1, 2012 at 12:59 PM

Pretty funny MKH.

hawkdriver on November 1, 2012 at 12:59 PM

MKH: men want her, women want to be her. Funny and smart, so few of us.

Jackalope on November 1, 2012 at 12:45 PM

Word.

If she asked me to break a mans arm. I’d be like “done”.

Gatsu on November 1, 2012 at 12:59 PM

SWalker on November 1, 2012 at 12:56 PM

I’ve never heard of it before either but I can certainly relate. My best friend in Virginia can make the most fabulous things out of stuff I can’t throw away fast enough.

Cindy Munford on November 1, 2012 at 1:00 PM

And she can make burlap look good.

Flange on November 1, 2012 at 1:00 PM

Once I found out I was pregnant, I steered clear of Pinterest. I do not care how many “awesome” ideas are on there for pregnant ladies, it would be more productive for me to finish all the things that have to get done before the baby gets here.

Oh, and the part at the end about knitting needles is worth waiting for…

pookysgirl on November 1, 2012 at 1:00 PM

Now you don’t know that. Give it a try with your wife’s next sammich offering.

Cindy Munford on November 1, 2012 at 1:01 PM

I thought this was going to be an intervention to cure an addiction to the author of “The Dumbwaiter” and “The Birthday Party.”

Pinterest is what Eric Stoltz was doing in that movie where he played the kid with the face like a sheer cliff wall, right?

Good Solid B-Plus on November 1, 2012 at 1:01 PM

Hilarious, Mary Katherine. More of these, please.

TXUS on November 1, 2012 at 1:02 PM

Katharine, I know, I know…

TXUS on November 1, 2012 at 1:02 PM

Pinterest is merely FaceDURRK but without the mindless “SO I HAD A CHICKEN SALAD 4 LUNCH 2 DAY LOLL!!!!!!!!” one-liners and corporate ads.

( which is to say that it’s much less detestable than the Zuckerblarrrrfgh menance )

Jeddite on November 1, 2012 at 1:03 PM

Pinterest – is it wrong?

Daisy_WI on November 1, 2012 at 1:03 PM

Hysterical! My wife and mother have the same problem with pinterest. And my family’s wedding business has done more than one hipster wedding with mason jars!

tvor03 on November 1, 2012 at 1:06 PM

Blue, I got ya. There’s eating and then there’s … dinning. Life is too short to not try to put together a fancy meal. Mrs. Hawkdriver (not her real name) and daughter unit will be treated to a Chicken Cordon Bleu I learned to make while I was in NY, during my visit home this week.

The rest of the guys here who can’t cook can just stuff asparagus.

hawkdriver on November 1, 2012 at 1:06 PM

WHATEVER, HOT AIR.
WHATEVER!!!!!!!!!!!
blatantblue on November 1, 2012 at 12:56 PM

Aw, just messin’ with ya. We know you’re still an alpha, albeit a romantic one. The ladies will like you for it.

conservative pilgrim on November 1, 2012 at 1:06 PM

blatantblue on November 1, 2012 at 1:00 PM

Step back for a second. Realize you are posting recipes on this site. Recipes.

And understand the bad decisions you’ve made with pinterest. ;)

Obviously, many people have a need for artistic expression. I think it’s great.

I was reading a woman’s blog. She wrote about how her husband took out the trash, said it was cold, so she sat down and immediately knitted him a scarf. What a wife!

But of course. For the side, I was thinking steamed spinach with grated Pecorino Romano or maybe just topped with goat cheese.

hawkdriver on November 1, 2012 at 1:11 PM

MKH collects blue mason jars! Awesome.

Thanks to Pinterest, my office has morphed into chevron heaven. Pinterest has provided me with chevron-decorated binders, calendars, and recovered clipboards. My device chargers have monogrammed chevron labels on them now. When my ex-Marine boss comes in and looks around, I wonder if he’s thinking I’m the most organized person in the world…or if he just thinks I’m going crazy.

girlscout on November 1, 2012 at 1:12 PM

I feel like have to send this to my daughter. She just doesn’t understand why I refuse to Pinterest even though her wedding is only 1 year away! She thinks I am being unreasonable and don’t want to help her plan. It’s not that, it’s just, since I am old, I know how deceptively attractive the dark side of crafting can be and I have the shelves of scrapbooking materials to prove it.

But I am afraid she will see the blue ball jars and want to change her reception centerpiece ideas AGAIN! And dare I risk the possiblity that she will insist on pumpkin chandeliers for her October wedding?

What to do, what to do…..

Lily on November 1, 2012 at 1:12 PM

Jeddite on November 1, 2012 at 1:10 PM

Not sure I’ve ever had a “badass” dinner. Next time I cook I’ll try to do it on top of a griffin while fighting the Hydra with Conan the Barbarian and Snake Plissken.

Good Solid B-Plus on November 1, 2012 at 1:12 PM

Best of luck with the project Mary K Ham. All the best.

and no, I don’t have a problem. I could quit anytime I wanted to!

metrygirl on November 1, 2012 at 1:16 PM

Hilarious Mary Katherine!

How many takes because you couldn’t hold it in? Looks like you just made it with the last scene. lol

Thanks for the break.

That’s so awesome.

Go fancy on the wine. Ask your store if they have an Arneis or Tocai Friulano, but if not go for Sauv Blanc

Last night I took crescent rolls and lined em with goat cheese, bacon, and wrapped it around sausage

I have photo evidence

blatantblue on November 1, 2012 at 1:16 PM

Good Solid B-Plus on November 1, 2012 at 1:11 PM

Sometimes McDonalds is badazz if I don’t have to cook.

Cindy Munford on November 1, 2012 at 1:16 PM

For the record, I blame my wife for addicting me to Pinterest. It is all her fault. She started on it way back when. I held out until jus the last couple of months. She created an account for me and then connected to hers to look up a reccipe (don’t ask why she did it that way), and then turned it over to me. I chewck it more often then any other site except Hot Air.

True story.

Thanks Pinterest!

mojowt on November 1, 2012 at 1:21 PM

blatantblue on November 1, 2012 at 1:16 PM

You’ve seen my pumpkin pies on Facebook, right?

Hey, what about the setting. I don’t want to ask the girls for help. I’m thinking the heavy linen, country kitchen stuff and the Montana Silversmith stoneward plates and bowls.

Cindy Munford on November 1, 2012 at 1:24 PM

Alas no. Mrs Hawkdriver (not her real name) and I were having a running firefight with the builder. I met them today on the site and cleared up a lot of confusion. But the build has slowed down. They’re redoing the entire subfloor, first floor interior doors and the fireplace. Mrs Hawkdriver (you know) still wants a completely authentic fireplace, flue and chimney. I want a stick frame with fire box with gas logs and the house built faster. I never win though so it’ll probably continue into the new year.

:-(

fjb3795 on November 1, 2012 at 1:37 PM

I cried.

Mostly because I have the mason jar shelf…and the burlap……

I’ve managed to keep my obsession contained (I pin in spurts), but I can’t say the same for my best friend/sister in law. Sending this to them immediately. :D

Bee on November 1, 2012 at 1:40 PM

I’m not sure what to think about the explosion in crafts for the last 8 – 10 years. I’ve been at it for 30 years and I’ve got the 18 gallon crates of yarn, fabric and crap collected from farm/estate auctions to prove it. I love the expanded supply of stuff to buy. The variety of yarn right now is just nuts! But, I am getting tired of the schlock out there that I know I’ll see at garage sales 3 years from now. It is good to here from other people suffering from large amounts of “UFOS”. (Unfinished Objects)

Gravel Gertie on November 1, 2012 at 1:42 PM

Blake on November 1, 2012 at 1:10 PM

That’s my wife, except she doesn’t blog about it. Like the good conservative woman she is, she will see a problem and immediately fix it. Builds her fishtank into the wall one day, then quilts our grandson a blanket the next day, then remodels the kitchen the next day (except she won’t do electrical, go figure). Gourmet dinner is on the table when I get home from work, and my coworkers always comment on my lunch she fixes every day. Of course she is a Conservative Republican. And don’t ever tell her that you can’t do something.

It’s good your learning to make sammiches for your “special one.”
I bet you look damn sexy in the apron.
Do they make you wear heels when you cook for them, or do you do that on your own?

Geez, I just pinned my two latest ebook cover revisions this morning.
Yesterday I pinned the photo of a mushroom close up (really close up, micro close up, blatantblue, 40 mm Nikkor with D600 close)
I thought it was good publicity but now I wonder…

vityas on November 1, 2012 at 2:08 PM

Haha! Love this, MKH!

If I weren’t spending so much time here at Hot Air, I would have time to categorize my over 8000 likes to my Pinboards!

Do more of this. please! :-)
