Everyday is like Saturday

I’m not religious at all. I think it’s all a load of gump. However, one thing I do miss is the quiet Sunday’s we had. Do you remember when everything was shut on Sunday? It was boring as a child I suppose, but was it? Is there really any joy from 24 hour shopping? Is MDF so utterly compelling and fashion so riveting that we have to look at it 7 days a week?
I’d love a day free from commercialism. Consumerism is so utterly inane it drives me quite mad at times.
Mobile phones for example, I have an 11 year old model. I can phone people up and send text messages if I so wish. Homeless people laugh at my phone. Women and those under 40 laugh at my phone. The thing is, they get these gizmos that can send pictures, chat on-line and listen to music. Wow.
I don’t mind facebook. But bear in my mind my last ‘update’ was the word ‘pah’.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to just stop buying shit we don’t need for a day? Or even going without something. Imagine running out of milk. Or sugar or bread. So what? Is your head going to fall off?

Greetings! I appreciate a fine Tweed and my hobbies include drinking heavily and acting. However I do not mix the two.
