Non-Essential Style

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.

Same look, sans scarf, taken by sweet CJ, so I'm actually smiling.

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.


  1. Cute outfit! I love the bright pants. So cheery on a bad day. I love the cartoon. This totatly sucks for you! I will be thinking of you and I hope it all is resolved soon.
