    can i help you achieve any of these goals?
    par example – i bring you rabbits or bugs or whatnot and then we prepare and consume?
    it’d be funtimes?

    okay so i just read the little disclaimer thingy at the end about offering aid so whoops my bad. aid still offered.

    • I would love for you to offer your aid. I’ve been slacking a little on these goals so having someone interested in helping would certainly help get me on my way again. Let me know which you want to help with.

        i’d like to watch zelig (wikipedia it cause it sounds rad) whilst eating homemade bagels.
        also, eat rabbit – once, as a child, my father gave me the opportunity to eat a rabbit that had been trapped whilst we were up north and i turned it down and i’ve regretted it forever.

        also i would eat bugs. mealworms are cheap and easy to make? maybe locust?
        we will discuss.
