Go Green

17 Jan

I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of receiving junk mail.  Between all the stupid credit card offers and the catalogs, my recycling bin is getting awfully full.  I was listening to NPR this morning (I’m so smart) and they ran a piece about how to make the torture end!!

Go to the Catalog Choice website, sign up for the free service, and save some trees. 

To stop the credit card offers, you can go to Opt Out website.

You’ll feel better. . .trust me.  It’ll take you 5 minutes and it’s time well spent.

    sweetie, your catalog choice link is going to a listing for reusable sandwich wrappers.

    also green, but not quite related to catalogs! 🙂

    Damn it. Thanks for catching that. . .sometimes I get confused. I’ll fix it now. -CS

    Quite a helpful post, Bridge. You definitely get the gold star today!

    I try to be environmentally friendly from time to time. . . -CS

    Catherinette dear, do you still have a fever? You’re getting all “globally aware” on us. I’m concerned.

    I might stop shaving my legs and start wearing some crocs and/or berkenstocks. Is that bad? -CS

    I somehow think the only way you will remotely appear in either of those types of shoe wear is if “Manolo Blahnik” starts making them…..

    But the more pressing question is what type of car would the man attracted to crocs and berkenstocks wear ? – obviously not a yellow mustang, a Prius perhaps ?

    You’re right about the shoes, though I’d also accept if Christian Louboutin decided to make some of those shoes. God I’d kill for those red soled shoes.

    A car?? How dare you!! I would demand that my man either ride a bicycle made entirely of recycled materials or he hoof it. -CS

    This Prius-driving,-just-purchased-her-first-pair-of-Crocs-Catherinette-Singleton-Fan and her mailbox, we THANK YOU!!

    (The crocs are for the hospital thank you very much. And the prius is getting 49MPG. Think about that the next time you are standing by the gas pump ; ) )

    Eitherway, I’m so reposting these links on my blog. With your name given due credit of course.

    I hate that your car gets much better mileage than mine! -CS

    Better gas mileage is the only thing that makes up for the fact that I drive a blue easter egg. Fashinable, it is not.

    Look at this way, it’s far hotter than driving a PT Cruiser. -CS

    Christain Louwhatta ? spell it, I can’t even say it so I had to google how to spell Blahnik too).

    Now there is a very high end custom exotic carbon bicycle maker who has made a bamboo bike before now (Calfee I think), but you have to be careful with those types, did you not read about the Scotsman found guilty of having sex with a bicycle ?

    Which raises all kinds of questions itself, such as “How ?”, “Is it above the age of consent ?”, “Was it a pretty bike or a hefty hybrid ?”

    This tells me that you are a straight man, otherwise, you would know exactly what I meant. Christian Louboutin is an artist that makes the most beautiful shoes-all with red soles. I love him.

    I have not heard this story about the Scotsman that decided to make sweet love to his bicycle. How intriguing, and sad. At one point does one hit bottom and say, “Hmm. . .you know what I find super hot, my bike. I’m going over there to romance it right now!” People need help. They really do.

    Another question left unanswered, “Did the bike enjoy it?” -CS

    Great tips! Gotta love NPR.

    I miss Bob Edwards. Morning Edition is not the same without him. -CS

    How will I know I’m alive if I don’t get those credit card offers?

    You’ll still get all the porn catalogs, those won’t ever go away. -CS

    Opt-Out asked me for my social security number. Are you sure it’s safe?

    It’s legit, baby! -CS

    I just opted out for five years. Hell yes! Thanks a bajillion.

    My pleasure! You enjoy that! -CS
