I'm guessing we won't be actively participating in "buy nothing" day today, though we will likely participate by default as the idea of shoppimg among hordes of people is one I don't like much. I remember three years ago when I went to Coffee Messian on Buy Nothing day, I exchanged a slice of my chocolate pecan pie for a chai. Mmmm! Alas, all of the pie has been eaten this year and there is none for me to exchange - and I only got one slice, boo.
PS: Stupid LJ is STILL not sending emails on comments consistently. Grrr!
