short shrift (there is nothing big about this post)
Some time last year I ordered a craft item off the internet. Suddenly I started receiving catalogues every month or two, with pages and pages and pages of every craft gadget you could ever imagine. It's interesting to flick through, tempts me occasionally (though I have never ordered anything more) and boggles the mind with all that is available. However, I didn't ask for it, I don't want it and it is an enormous waste of paper... if I want something from them, I know how to get to their website!
So I phoned up today and unsubscribed. And it was suprisingly easy. I feel all self righteous and most definitely pleased.
That and giving the telemarketer short shrift, I'm feeling strong. I can resist the marketing machine!
