    I can't stay at home.

    I have to prepare for a trip across the nation to try to get a package of toilet paper.

    An epic quest indeed. One which I'm sure that the bards will be singing about for countless generations to come.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    So I checked again last night, and lo and behold, a slot was open for today.

    Things I couldn't order:

    Water
    Pasta
    Flour
    Eggs

    We'll see how much of what I did manage to order is fulfilled.

    Also, this morning I ordered the refreshed, (bottom-of-the-line) Macbook Air (with no upgrades except AppleCare). Says here, "Delivers: Mar 31 - Apr 7 by Express Delivery." Both of my laptops died during finals week last term, only one was repairable, and this isn't a good time to be without a backup.

    Eggs and bottled water are scarce but not nearly as much as hand sanitizer. The problem is when can you pick it up or have it delivered. As you noted they were indicating that there was something like a week delay which is awfully long when you don't have food. Fortunately for you a slot did open up.

    They probably heard about your perfect hair.

    I wonder if this whole pandemic will lead to more people starting to grow their own little mini-garden in order to be able to be a little more self-sufficient in case of a situation like this ever happening again.

    We always react to a crisis like this, then very soon forget and go back to our old ways.
