Yeah, Yeah, I Joined Pinterest…
I am a fan of bourbon. I like to sip it in my office and pretend I am a Mad Man-esque classy dame. Buffalo Trace is my particular fave, even though Maker’s Mark is supposed to be the ooh-la-lah of bourbons. That said, if Maker’s Mark is going to offer an Ambassador Program by which you get fancy business cards and your very own barrel of bourbon waiting for you should you ever visit their facility, then yes, I will become an Ambassador!
So, I registered a while back, and weeks later I received my welcome packet, including a very fancy looking piece of parchment announcing the dedication of my very own barrel, red wax seal and all. (This thing was legit.) It was pretty snazzy.
But I laughed out loud when I saw the name of my barrel, which I had completely forget I ever named it:
And my very first thought (testament to the insidiousness of social media) was, “Damn, I wish I was on Pinterest so I could pin this thing.”
And from there, it began…
I’ve tried to avoid Pinterest for as long as I could, because lord knows I need no additional means to waste my time, and I have a highly addictive personality, especially when it comes to pretty graphics of kick-ass quotes that sum up my life philosophy. (Or pictures of pandas. Or Jennifer Lawrence.)
But, it’s just plain fun, and if I can justify wasting an hour perusing random strangers’ boards in the name of developing another branch of my “online brand,” then I’m in.
Will you be my…what do you call Pinterest followers? Pinheads?
