  2. I'm sort of tuned out to tech. not entirely, but I don't buy lots of apple things or keep social media profiles. I think shopping online is nice for music, but I don't actually even buy that anymore because it would require that I use an mp3 player. lol

    Instagram keeps advertising these really cute dresses to me
    Note to self, never give Instagram my CC information or I will own that same dress in all 10 different prints

    Once you start, it’s hard to stop. Stay strong :D

    I admire you for this, just sayin’

    Lol!

    I know! Great idea but the temptation to buy whimsically will be too strong.

    You could get five of the dresses, though. ;) That shows restraint, right?

    I prefer real-time shopping.

    I know. I'm old.

    I like that, too. lol There are a lot of outdoor malls not too far from where I live and that’s a fun experience. Do you ever buy surfing stuff online?

    i still haven't figured out the point of instagram. everyone seems to have it these days, but as far as i can tell it's just facebook dumbed down.

    BeatinFeet69 Just another disillusioned tramp

    The last social network I was plugged into was MySpace and that was nearly 15 years ago. I reckon Hip technically counts but I really don't see it the same. I've never had Facebook, Instagram, or any of that other shit. I do play online video games though I'll be giving that up too when I leave my ex wife. Never felt right with all that damn technology, if folks were meant to be connected at all times we'd have fuckin' telepathy.

    I like it better than FB as it’s easier to navigate through, less FB bs and drama.

    Nah, I'm one of those support-local-business types :)

    That's great! I like doing that with local farmers markets.

    I want to too, but the farmers market here is only on Mondays during the workday.

    I don't know what genius came up with that schedule, but it pretty much guarantees regular working folk can't go very often. :(

    Yeah, it's aggravating. So I settle for the organic produce at places like Trader Joe's.
