So in a twist of irony, furloughed federal employees had to report to work to be told they can't report to work until further notice. We had to show up and sign a letter to that effect, then we had 4 hours to shut it down and hand over to our military colleagues.
I decided I wanted to look cute for this meeting, 1) because I always want to look cute and 2) because I felt like maybe if the government saw me looking fly, they'd change their mind and decide I wasn't so "non-essential" after all.
Just kidding. Sort of.

This cartoon was waiting for me in my mailbox in the political science department. I LOLed, maybe for the only time on Tuesday. I looked for the image online but couldn't find one, so I had to take it with my camera.
I'm not going to get political here, so all I'll say is that I hope this is over soon, so I can go back to doing my job (which I LOVE) and collecting a paycheck.
