Some Sunday Food For Thought during our American excess season

buy it, buy it, buy it, eat it, eat it, eat it.

I've been sleepwalking through the "holiday" season for several years now. well, more than several years. obligatory buying puts me off, as it does to most of us. "please don't buy me anything, spend that moolah on someone who needs it," is a common refrain from those of us who are just over satiated to the point of puking, with today's commercialism.

aside from personal ways though, to balance the excess with something more meaningful, I have been too dimwitted to think of a better way.

these people, though, have quite definitely thought of a different, and better way. a problem, at least for me, is feeling a bit pukish just thinking of the redesigned "dumpster diving" food fest.

all about the freegans..

from trash to treasure--food treasures?

aussie freegans?

and..

buy nothing-uk

lots of buying nothing...

I would love to boycott Xmas; but eventually I break down and give in. The only thing that makes it worthwhile is the friends and family that spend some time with each other ... as well the tree overflowing with lights (South Philly boys never learn minimalism).
