We had four huge catalogues delivered yesterday- each as big as a Victorian family Bible. They're sitting on the floor beside my desk because I can't bring myself to throw them in the recycling bin- even though that's all they're good for. It's not that we won't buy from the companies that sent them- because we have done and will again- but that we're settled into the habit of doing all our browsing and ordering online. I asked Ailz if there's no way to get the marketing departments to cease and desist, and she said, "No". Apparently once you're on their mailing lists you're on them for life. I know I'm being soppy about this, but I don't like it for trees to have died in vain.
