Some days the internet isn't big enough

I'm having one of those days where I feel like I've already read the whole internet and now there's nothing to do!

But then my Big Boss, the mayor, Twittered this and I had something to do!

GOOD NEWS: you can OPT OUT of receiving phone books at your door. details here: http://bit.ly/ajyRk7. Spread the word.

If you get Dex directories (which I think may be only from Qwest), give it a try. They bury that opt-out thing in obscurity, and the instructions are on that bit.ly page. Now if I could find the same service for that lame-ass weekly "Living" section from the newspaper...

I get FOUR phone books every year from them and at least two others from different companies and I never use any. I'm hoping it works too, I tweeted the info to help spread the word

I'm sorry for the people who have no internet access, I really am. But phone books? Need to stop.

Yay! Thank you! I will retweet as well. Ours always go straight into the recycle bin, and I think "what a waste" every time.

Sorry, I've been lurking since I saw your comments on Portlandlize and bikeportland. I suppose I should introduce myself so as not to be a creepy lurker! Hi, I'm JJ!

Hey there! Anyone who finds anything interesting to read here is welcome to lurk, but I'm always happy to meet a fellow LJ-er--and presumably a Portland cyclist? *hurries off to look at your LJ*

Sadly, I rarely update my own LJ these days, but yes, I am indeed a Portland cyclist, usually on the Xtracycle with one or two boys on the back, but also on my own from time to time too :)
