I laugh loudly, tip well, can quote Eddie Izzard or Princess Bride with ease, and have no idea what is happening in the professional sports world on a fairly regular basis.
I'm all about practical approaches to 'fixing' the world-fair trade, microcredit, green jobs, the whole nine. I prefer independent retailers and locally grown produce.... *but* I don't live the perfect sustainable life and I generally try not to be a righteous greenie. I will be somewhat disappointed if you don't recycle though - it's single stream in Philadelphia, it doesn't get much easier than that : )
My bookshelves are really crowded, yet I have trouble resisting the urge to buy more every time I go into a bookstore. Used bookstores are even worse, since they're usually independent and the books are being reused, so it's sustainable, right? Right?
