My excuse is that its a pointless excersize in some self-congratulatory social white horse parade and doesn't raise any 'awareness' (I'm aware of cancer, I havent fixed it yet) or practical benefits of any kind
If i want to feel good about myself without putting any effort in to really achieving anything there are a whole load of better ways to do it!
I spent most of today organising the event in 1/2 a million square feet of office space in London. Closed off the light across the estate for 1 hours at 20:30.. We started doing it at 18:30 and finsihed putting them back on at 23:45 lol
Well all of my lights were off, but I had my 47" LCD TV, surround sound, DVD player, computer, router, and modem running.....so I suppose I didn't help much....lol.....lights are not required for entertainment...all of those toher things are....
