  •  Ch/Jeers to my first Furlough Friday. (3+ / 0-)

    Jeers, obviously, because the asshole Congress gets paid for doing nothing - unlike me and my co-workers, today (first of 5 to 7 before Sept. 30).

    Fortunately I have no kids and I save like a squirrel with OCD, so this loss of a week's salary will only be an irritating pinch in my wallet. My heart goes out to co-workers with kids in college and steep mortgages to deal with.

    OTOH, I got a hell of a lot of non-paid work done today - as if I switched into hyper-springcleaning drive the second I shoulder-rolled out of bed, and as if in defiance of the "no work" order (not even allowed to check our voice messages). Things got cleaned that had lain fallow around here for years. I ache like a marathoner right now, but my postage-stamp of a back yard is now fit for summer entertaining, and the shed is no longer toxic.
