Pinteste Round-up: Atlanta Meet-up and Hair

0 Posted by - September 24, 2013 - Announcements, Pinteste Round-ups

Oh my gosh, you guys. I forgot to put two people in the Pintester Movement before it went live because I messed up. Please, if you haven’t yet, go visit Whipstitch Designs and Untypically Jia and comment on their stuff, because I am an idiot and they got short-changed on this whole round-up thing. Thank you!

And thanks to all of you who participated in the Pintester Movement! Stay tuned for the next one. A little birdie tells me it will have something to do with Christmas ornaments, so start pinning some ideas now.


We’re doing a meet-up in Atlanta on Friday! I chickened out on finding a really cool place to meet and instead decided that we’re meeting at Willy’s Wine Bar in the Westin Buckhead lobby. The Westin is right near Lenox Square Mall so I don’t think parking will be an issue– at least I hope not! I’m sorry for being lame, guys, but I want everyone to be able to park easily and find the place and, honestly, I’m also covering my ass in case no one shows up… which could totally happen.

But it won’t, right? Because you’re coming and we’ll hang and it’ll be awesome.

So. Friday the 27th of September, 5 pm until we get done or I get tired of sitting at the bar by myself, whichever comes first… Willy’s Wine Bar in the Westin Buckhead lobby. I will find a way to make it obvious that I am me, but feel free to stalk me by looking for my stupid face.

I really want to meet you, so please come!

Your Comments

And now, my dears, here’s what you’ve been up to in that raucous comments section…

Some of you haven’t been in the round-up as of yet, but keep leaving your funny, awesome comments, and it will happen!

Catherine • I’m jealous. I’m like that annoying kid in class sitting there raising her hand going “ooh ooh. Look at me. Pick me!” about this whole round-up thing.

I pick you, Catherine.

Crisco candles are apparently a lot more interesting (and full of innuendo) than I thought they were.

msdill • Going to ask the husband if he would like to stick his wick in my Crisco.

Weaslyisourking • Your “lesbian experience” more reminded me of my first doctors appointment after giving birth… That’s what happens girls. Your vagina is a fresh can of crisco. Then you give birth and it turns into a can of crisco someone has clearly put their finger in, hit on the counter, smooshed together and declared it passable.

kmd2785 • Do you know how many “that’s what she said” jokes just came out of this video??? Seriously I think I’m going to watch it again and keep a tally…

I know I can always count on you folks to take the low road. Thanks for that!

Pom pom bookmarks are fun, but, as I’ve been rightly accused of, I do not have a cat.

Abby • Clearly, you do not have cats. I see 3 things with this pintest: 1) potential choking hazard for my cat who chews on all things made of yarn; 2) potential puking hazard for said cat who will eat all the schniblets like skittles (is that the word you used? I can’t remember now and I’m too lazy to scroll up and see); and 3) potential cat toy for said cat who will inevitably bat it underneath a heavy piece of furniture, thereby forcing me to find a tool with which to retrieve it. Ah, felines.

Also, I think I spelled “schnipple” wrong.

Franzi • Well, as I’m German I can tell you a secret “schnippeln” is a regional accent (from the North to be exact) for cutting. So if there is any German ancestry in your family, this is not weird at all.

That explains it!

I always get lots of helpful advice on my hair tests.

kittnen • Anytime I see hair tutorials, I’m just reminded of this Natalie Dee comic.

Apparently there’s more than one scary thing about dating.

Daniela Rossi • The scary thing about dating is that you can end chopped up in pieces and buried under a bush.

You are a dark person, Daniela. I like it.

Joanna Likness Pendleton • I really like the photograph. Caption could read, “The scary thing about dating is that some weird chick might squash your head while attempting to make out with you awkwardly.”

Also scary.

Sweet Ethne sent me a card that I got this week full of People of Walmart calendar pages because she knows how much I love them. Also, she wanted to participate in the Pintester Movement, but this:

Ethne Hedren Denham • Pintester, I was totally going to joint the Movement, but then I fell down the stairs last week – I’m ok – and had some bruises and headaches, so I didn’t really feel like doing anything…which is too bad cuz Pinterest has tons of stupid home remedies. Well see, I failed right there. Keep me on the email mailer for next time though, ok?

Everyone give Ethne love and subtly inappropriate cuddles, ok?

Thanks sweet things, and don’t forget to meet me in Atlanta!

(Just a note: If you are a blogger, be sure to add your blog URL to the Disqus profile you’re using to comment here. That way I can link to your blog! I wanna give you the love, yo.)

    Haha – Thanks! And I completely agree with Abby – you need a cat. You could get that one-eyed kitten I saw on CNN –

    I will be there for Type A. I will look for you.

  • Moonstrobe September 24, 2013 - 3:13 pm Reply

    This is the first time I left Birmingham that I regret it. I Would have been able to go to Atlanta! Boo! Oh well, maybe on day the stars will align and you’ll be having some sort of social get together when I am back south visiting my family. Or maybe you’ll tour the Midwest. Hey, we have corn! Actually it’s the best corn in the US. It’s called Peaches and Cream. OMG it is so good! Yeah definitely come for the corn.

    • Dar Hamill September 25, 2013 - 12:07 pm Reply

      You seriously just went on about corn and it was awesome. Thank you for brightening my day! 🙂

    I wish I could meet you in Atlanta. I would totally hang with you and your willy.

    When you mentioned your schnipples you were talking about your Yiddish grandma’s naughty bits. My bad.

    Have fun!

    I’m in the round up?? Awww yissss!! *screams in delight* *scares the crap out of the dog*

  • Catherine September 25, 2013 - 10:01 am Reply

    OMG!!! I totally feel like I made the whole Meredith Grey “Pick me. Choose me. Love me.” speech, except…YOU DID!!! YAY!!! You made my day, Pintester!

    Just FYI, from personal experience, they do boot people who park in the Lenox lot and then leave to use other businesses, like the Westin, and parking in the deck at the Westin is really expensive. If you want people to be able to use the Lenox lot, you should relocate the meetup to somewhere inside the mall…

  • Untypically Jia September 25, 2013 - 4:02 pm Reply

    Aww, thanks for the extra mention today! You rock!

    I’m super bummed I (probably) won’t be able to make it to the meet-up tonight. Maybe I’ll make it down for a bit… We’ll see. I so admire your sense of humor. I tried making a meal plan last week and it didn’t go all that well, but the blog post I wrote about my failures wasn’t nearly as entertaining as yours. (My lame excuse: I’m a little afraid what my mother might think if I started making penis jokes on my blog.) Anyway, cheers to you!

    Hey, I’m going to sound like a total fangirl, but I just wanted to say thank you! You’ve inspired me to start my own blog. I realized I don’t have to be polite, organized or a fantastic photographer to have a blog, and I’ve really loved having mine! I only started it about three weeks ago, but I’m having a ton of fun with it. And I never would have started if I hadn’t found your page. It’s messy, all over the place, I swear a lot and talk about my cat way too much, but all in all, I think it’s doing well. If you’d like to check it out, I’d be honored. Thanks again, you’re the best!

      Thank you so much, Brenna! That’s a really sweet compliment and I’m so glad you’re doing what you want to do with your blog! It’s a very cool blog, BTW. Love it! Keep on blogging and be yourself, girl! It’s awesome!
