No, I won’t have a Vine Account….

Nor will I ever return to the throes of Instagram.

(so if you see a Vine account with the username of cinnabubbles it is essentially fake and not me. Instagram doesn’t allow you to recreate an account with a previously used username so I’m safe there.)

Word on the street is of how easy it is for the tiny humans in one’s possession (that’s your kids) to stumble upon porn via the Vine app.

…really?

This is BRAND NEW INFORMATION.

….Not.

It’s fairly easy to post porn to Twitter’s photo sharing service, although it’s fairly easy to hide if you

a) Don’t follow NSFW twitter feeds

b) turn on the “sensitive material” filter

Who’dathunk that its “video” (it’s more animated GIFs) service wouldn’t be treated in the exact same manner?

Now I don’t have kids, and I’m not about to tell someone how to raise them, but I don’t think the tiny humans should be toting iPhones, ‘droids, or tablets. There are plenty of other kid-friendly entertainment devices out there that little Cindy Lou Who doesn’t have to be poking about on Mummy’s iPad.

Kid hikes up a $500 iTunes in-app bill? Your fault. You didn’t bother to educate yourself on the iDevice’s features to see if there was restrictions/parental controls.

A word of advice? i’m a 24 year old woman and I have In-App purchases disabled on my iPod because even for ME it is THAT easy to buy the ‘extras’ in a game by pure accident.

Kid ventures across porn on your iDevice or ‘droid? Your fault.

You’re not monitoring Jake Jr. The Fifteenth. You might think it’s okay to just hand over the device and let the kid have at it without supervision but it also circles around to the in-app purchases as well.

Kid was playing a game last you left your technology device with them, and now they’re on Vine and looking at porn.

Some kids can’t read, buttons get pressed and bam.

Porn is fairly easily accessed, fairly easily avoided if people WATCH. THEIR. KIDS.

There’s a time and a place for porn.

And I won’t be having any of it unsolicited in my Vine or my Instagram.

If I want to look at porn, I’ll go looking for it. Yes internet at large, I watch porn and own sex toys. Whoopdedoo, Basil! I don’t want to be loading up “Popular pictures” and there’s a pair of tits in my face because well…tits are popular, and people will like and comment the absolute hell out of tits.

Also, sex sells, people. There’s no other explanation besides that, “for attention and/or 15 minutes of fame.” and “because they can.” to the question of “Why would someone DO that?”

Rather than goin’ up in arms, just watch your kids and everything will be gravy.

Week in Photos – 1.21.13 – 1.27.13

On Sunday, The Lion King was on ABC Family.

I was just flipping through the channels and BAM, there it was.

My inner child was pleased.

Snow, snow. More snow.

Winter is getting its last punches in by being cold as a witch’s tit and dumping snow on us.

Tuesday put 2 in the bag for the Devils. Flyers are now down by three, and David Boreanaz was pissed.

(If you’re just tuning in, David Boreanaz plays Booth on Bones, my new all-time favorite show since House ended. And I have a huge crush on him.)

After the game ended, I watched The Dark Knight and 10 Things I Hate About You in honor of Heath Ledger. I’ve done that little tradition every year on the anniversary of his death.

During the holiday, our local bagel shop gave us a free bag of store-made bagel chips. They were so good that the following Sunday, my Dad got me a bag of bagel chips from ShopRite. Plain bagel and garlic. Mmm…

My fortune is always trying to tell me something about money, or people in my past.

This isn’t going to happen.

Saturday afternoon, I ate the left-over eggdrop soup. My favorite soup from Chinese restaurants. EVAH.

Oh hey, this is what my bed looks like without all the stuff on it? (Look hard enough, and you can see one of many patches. Stupid separating seam.)

My bed was so full of clean and warm that night. Mrrrrrr….

Scrambled eggs?

Scrambled eggs with cheese.

Four eggs. Dash of milk. Piece of cheese. Mix it all up. Cook. Bam. Deliciousness.

Friday I got a hair cut.

And according to my FourSquare history, it’s been about two months since I’ve done so.

Usually my hair’s about parallel with the bottom of my ears length-wise.

In two months it had grown to the bottom of the back of my neck.

TOO LONG!

Also on Friday, I committed the crime of eating McDonalds.

I suppose eating it only once in a blue moon isn’t all that bad, but I really love those french fries and the McNuggets.

Thankfully I didn’t commit the crime alone, because fellow blogger Chloe has eaten it this week too.
