Addictions

One of the reasons living more simply appeals to me so much, is that implementing its principles has helped me loosen my addiction to stuff. And yet, just when I start making progress on one addition, another one comes galloping along to take its place.

Case in point: Pinterest. This week I finally created an account and, dear god, I can't stop pinning things! If you're thinking, what the hell is Pinterest and how could pinning things to virtual bulletin boards be so addicting?, I totally understand. That's exactly what I thought, before I signed up. I mean seriously, I've spent hours every evening since looking at pretty pictures and "pinning" them to my own boards.

Maybe it's my weakness for pictures of pretty home decor, or the fact that we've been talking about finally redoing the kitchen (still not definite yet tho) and Pinterest makes it easy for me to organize my inspiration. Or maybe it's just my addictive personality. But seriously, I don't need another internet addiction. Le sigh.

Seems I'm not the only one around here with a new addiction. Alex the cat has recently developed his own mighty fierce addiction to boxes. I present exhibits A and B, your honor:

He's been laying on one of these two boxes constantly for the last week. Seriously, what is it with cats and boxes? Or cats and being weird?
