Uh. Grubhub? Are you doing okay? Are you like, feeling all right? Getting enough sleep?

I’m worried about you, Grubhub. 

What is a “Grubhub,” and should I be worried about it attacking my house?

If Grubhub ever comes to you, lay flowers before it, and welcome it with kisses on the mouth. Like, their marketing is weird, but their existence is amazing.

Grubhub is the best thing to happen to the socially anxious since the advent of email. It’s a website that works with local delivery services to provide you with online ordering access to restaurants which deliver but don’t have the means or skills to put up an online ordering widget themselves.

If you live in most major cities, and many suburbs, in the United States, you can go to GrubHub, enter your address, and view a list of restaurants that deliver to you. If like me you live in the deep urbs and have 400 restaurants that deliver to you, you can filter them by type of food, whether they offer coupons, rating, distance, and several other factors. You can also search for specific food items if you’re craving, IDK, soy gyros or whatever. You can add notes to every item you order, and notes for the delivery driver. You can pay by credit card, paypal, or cash.

I have literally not had to use a telephone to order food delivery in almost a decade, thanks to GrubHub.

I hate having to do this.  I hate it more than anything in the world.  I already did it once and the fact that I’m still in this place just…

I’m not out of the woods yet.  Please reblog this, even if you can’t donate, to help me get the word out.  If I can make it until October, the strain will drop, but until then…

Had a home visit from some Catholics, due to the trying-to-get-out-of-the-hole-I’m-in thing. The older man kept staring at my books, which made it a bit hard for me. I honestly expected him and the other woman to walk out because it’s very clear I’m not christian.

But they didn’t. There was a quick question about if I’m part of a church, but that was it. They gave me something like $300 in gift cards — gas, groceries, petco — and a bag of base household essentials. They said they’d talk to their group about getting me through the next two months with my rent, and that they would come by again. They complimented my intelligence and my capacity for resourcefulness. I cried quite a bit.

Love people. First and foremost, despite differences of opinion and personal creed, love people. That is an affirmation I am constantly coming back to, and I’m grateful for that.  I made it through August, thanks to all of you and your generosity and kindness. I’ve sent thank-yous to everyone, and I will continue to genuinely thank everyone going forward. 

Two more months to go…

Got another card from relatives. I need to sit down and write some thank-you letters. September might be a little easier to achieve, but due to the new dispatchers at work I only had two routes last week. Granted, it came out to be about 26 pieces… I need to look at my print-outs and see if I can estimate what the next check is going to be.

No luck on the job hunting front. I’ve had something like three interviews, and all three of them have been rejections.

I’ve used both the gas cards and the one petco card from the Catholics; still have the two QFC cards, and I’m going to check tomorrow if there’s any way I can use them to buy a money order for myself. Probably not, but it’s worth trying. That would be another $45 dollars or so.

As of right now, I’ll need to raise $331.40 before the 31st if I don’t want to be late. After the 6th it’ll be $406.40 because of the $75 fee, as well as the cost of getting money orders so that’ll raise the number up a bit more.

A NYC grad student working on food stamps for her thesis has released a free cookbook for those living on $4/day.

SIG NAL BOO OO OO OOOST

hello

oooooh this is so nice!

I believe it’s important to eat well, even when you’re strapped for cash. It’s good for your health and energy! This cookbook is full of delicious and healthy recipes, the ingredients of which are fairly inexpensive.

I ACKNOWLEDGE THIS WOMAN AS A FELLOW WARRIOR AND A FANTASTIC HUMAN BEING. 

Someone become this woman’s patron so she can keep doing things like this.  Holy crap, could I have ever used this a few years ago.  Hell, I could use it now!

My garden, by request.

From left to right — an experimental “planter” made of a comic book, growing mustard greens; watering cup; paprika peppers; chives (hard to see), red onions in the red planter, stevia and mustard greens in the blue muffin tin, gourds, green onions in the blue planter, two bowls of California poppies, Hungarian Blue breadbox poppies, and the aloe plant Mum gave me, nicknamed Ragtime (“Aloe, my Ragtime gal!”) 

The “terrace” is really just a glassed in room about the size of a small walk-in closet, and it has no direct climate control, but it’s nice and humid most of the time, so the sprouts seem to be doing ok.
