I don't believe we've all gotten so in touch w/ nature that we're ridin' our bikes and planting trees commando style. I don't buy it. And I didn't buy new underwear for 2 years.
But the tips I was given by my fellow environmentalists were kinda poor. Is it a requirement that environmentalists sport white granny panties that come via post? Buying clothes is a special sort of hell for me, so convincing myself to buy clothes I'd hate was just impossible.
Last week I started thinking I should layer my holey underwear to create one whole pair. But it's more of an art/ political piece w/ the symbolic "No Bush in 2004" pair on the outside (thanks, beth!).
So yeah, I got over my hang ups and took a trip to Stonestown Mall's Victoria Secrets.
Gotcha! For real, I went to American Apparel, only to come home to a lecture from my darling housemate: "You KNOW American Apparel's NOT a good company".
