How Much Toilet Paper?

Concerned that you don't have enough TP? Do you line up at Costco at 2 AM to buy mountain money? Afraid of being overcome by dingleberries? Here's how to calculate if you've got enough on hand.


Don't be fooled by appearances. In Hawaii, some of the most powerful people look like bums and stuntmen.

At the shelter, we seem to have enough for 400+ people. Sometimes we run out, but apparently we don't have enough people to divide up the commercial-sized rolls into portions for individual use. Some volunteers only roll the paper around their hand a few times before tearing it off, others give a lot more.
As for computer usage, I was going to Barnes and Noble until they closed; yesterday I sat outside, on the cold hard cement, getting as much stuff done on my netbook before the battery ran out. Today I'm at my church, which is beginning to meet online using Zoom. Still some bugs in the system, but it basically works. No wi-fi at the shelter.
I usually do puzzles, and I have a few books, but afterwhile, it gets boring. So I went out and bought a deck of playing cards and a little AM/FM radio at Rite Aid.
As for meals, at first City Net gave out their emergency food packs, and when those ran out, they got the suppliers for schools to donate the kid meals to us. So we're actually eating better than we were--portion control being key. But there are some people with conditions like diabetes and gout who have a problem with even these healthier meals. How awful to not be able to eat what everyone else is eating, especially when it's free!
You all stay well and take care of yourselves.
