The Beginnings of Rantings

Sky Mall magazine. It sets me off. It was the start of a my mini-obsession with the ridiculous things that have only one purpose and otherwise are useless or which solve a problem no one actually has. Solutions and Frontgate catalogs also abound with these items though occasionally have something mildly useful.

Sky Mall became part of my Christmas gift traditions. Every year, I give a donation to a charity that my recipient supports. I include in the card an item cut out of Sky Mall with a note: "What you're NOT getting this year." No one has yet said, "Oh but I wanted that!"

A humorous yet biting foray versus consumerism. An important subject...I look forward to more posts.
