The three Rs

Reduce, reuse, recycle, right? Isn't that what we're all supposed to be doing? Yeah, me too. I'm working on being a little more conscious of what I consume without getting all wacko about it, you know, like the folks using rags for toilet paper. I can't make myself even think about going there, but I feel I'm making progress in my own half-hearted way.

But today I found a site that may well hold the key to putting my conservation efforts over the top:

NetFlix Origami!

Yes, finally, a use for those extra flaps from the Netflix mailers. Apparently the paper is perfectly suited for origami. Is that brilliant or what? They have several cool patterns, including a snack tray to hold your M&Ms while enjoying Napoleon Dynamite for the thirty-fourth time. Not that I would know what that was like or anything.

I threw out a pile in my last move but it won't take long to accumulate another stack. Geez, I'd better get that Battlestar Galactica disc finished up so I can send it back.
