Will Work For Food, Or Without It, Whatever

So what, then, do we do about all of this? I may have mentioned in my previous post that I'm due to bleed soon. I've been holding off on my plans because A.)

That and I also can't afford to shop for food until Friday. Puts a bit of a damper on things. ...more
