Light Bloggage Ahoy!
Hi, apologies for the lack of activity.
Life, too much work and trying to cut down on alcohol consumption are all conspirying against poons at the moment, and a possible loss of net connection also looms as I am in the process of moving house.
In answer to the comments on the Buy Nothing Day post.
Thats my birthday - can I still buy beer?
Absolutely not. However you could convince your friends of your moral stance, and let them buy you beer all night. Problem sorted! - Happy Birthday for Saturday.
It's also the day of our Tower Hamlets protest against the war, so if anyone wants to come down and not buy anything, while joining our march. Please feel free.
e-mail towerhamletsATstopwar.org.uk for further info on this. Of course this also gives you a perfect repsonse to anyone trying to sell you a copy of Socialist Worker *evil cackle*
Is it OK to go shop-lifting?
Well pedantically speaking, that does not constitute buying, though it is consuming so I'm gonna go with No Comment ;o)
Finally balders said...
That's our household buggered then. Refuse point blank to go shopping on a Sunday, and the rest of the week we work so Saturday's the only day to do the weekly shopping. Am I allowed to buy essentials (bread, milk, dog food, cereal), or is it belt-tightening time (not necessarily a bad thing) in the balders household?
Hmm tricky one. BND is aimed at anti-consumerism in the run up to The December Comsumption Festival, so I suppose as long as you picket the car park at your local supermarket with BND literature afterwards, it would form as serving penance for your evil capitalistic ways!
And now after the sanctimounious answers, I must admit that I will be working Saturday in a Newsagents/Off Licence, and am paired for the shift with my Boss, so I don't think I'm gonna get away with much convincing of people to put the items back and leave the premises.
Now Playing : Portishead - Sour Times - oh the bitter irony....
