Why do phone books still exist?  At the turn of the new year, our building was delivered 30+ phone books.  They sat there.  And sat there.  Until our management company came to clean up the place and kindly threw them yellow_pagesaway for us.  Who uses a phone book these days?  And why are they automatically delivered to homes?  If you truly want one, they should have you request it.  In a time when we are doing everything to go green, it seems eliminating the phone book would be a good way to save trees.  I cannot rememeber the last time I looked something up in an actual phone book.  Please, please, please eliminate these wastes of trees, time, and energy. 

The last person I saw use a phone book was Phoebe’s grandma on Friends. She compared the obituaries with her phone book and “updated” it that way. Even she didn’t have a need for a new phone book every six months!

After doing a little research on this, I found a place you can sign up to opt out of receiving these horrible things! I urge you to do so here!

Quote of the Day: “People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life . . . I think that what we’re really seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonance within our innermost being and reality, so that we can actually feel the rapture of being alive.” –Joesph Campbell
