You might remember The Elf from a little column she wrote here at Lost In a Supermarket called Bureaucracy for Breakfast, where she unloaded on the wolrd the various trials and tribulations of being an unemployed woman in the nadir of an economic recession. It made us laugh, a lot of people responded, and she’s […]


Read more Bureaucracy for Breakfast HERE In real life, I’ve managed to avoid crossing paths with the intensely racist right wing crowd. Well, I guess there’s no difference between “intense racism” and racism, but stay with me here.
