What's New, Darling?

{My Foursquare "Mayorships": 2 pubs, a liquor store, & dept. store -
doesn't say much about my usage of spare time, huh?
Foursquare & Skins. My two latest obsessions. Do you use Foursquare? I can't quite decide whether it's a truly annoying application (people knowing where you are 24/7?) or totally ingenious. There are definitely some things that need to be worked out, such as the allowance of gas-station checkins. I mean, come on. Gas stations? Number one, who cares whether you pump your gas at Kum & Go or the Pump & Munch (both Midwestern gas station chains, lovely right?)? And why does one spend enough time at said gas house to think to check in there online? Get your gas, Cheetos, & Diet Coke & get the hell out of there.
Anyway, back to business. I recently started watching season one of Skins. I know I'm a little late to the party (as always), but at least I showed up. I'm completely addicted. I love the characters & the crazy scenes (mental hospital happy time, anyone?). I love that it's like a combination of The OC, Degrassi, & I don't know...some other stuff. But it's great. Check it out. My favorite character is definitely Cassie Ainsworth, who's absolutely vacant & not a little crazy. Her makeup & outfits alone sold me, ha.

Well, back to the books, ta ta!

I'm apparently way out of the social media loop because I've never even heard of Foursquare. Or Skin for that matter :)

Shut the front door those are real names of gas stations. WOW!

Never heard of skins..might have to check it out.

The Cottage Cheese said...

Mmmm... cheetos. Haven't had those in years, and there's nothing quite like those tasty little orange misshapen snacks.

I've never heard of Skins. Will have to check it out (perhaps I'll watch a marathon of Skins one weekend when my husband is out of town).

Man, I loved Skins. Finished Series 2. Can't wait for Series 3 to come out on DVD.

Callie Grayson said...

I am so out of the look, I don't know either of them.
will have to check them out.

Gabby said...

I feel totally lame, lady, I don't know what either one of those things are! Must investigate pronto!

Never heard of "Skins," but I'm very into Fouesquare - though I, similarly, can't figure out whether it's brilliant or stalkeresque. I was pretty happy to gain Mayorship of my favorite Lebanese place the other day, though...

In this wonderful life... said...

never seen skins! Sorry I'e been so out of the loop... I'm playing catch up!

You crack me up! I haven't gotten on the foursquare bandwagon, it would scare me to have people have know where I'm at 24/7. Plus I have really nosy relatives, they don't need to know where I'm at ;)
