I am so sending one of these temper tantrum mats to every single obstructionist member of Congress.
My director at the VA said to me this morn, "Of course you'll still be working during your furlough."
Actually, I will be- writing a new grant- whether the gubermint shuts down or no. But I have DD#2 in college, and a mortgage to pay (memo to Wells Fargo: remember when the Feds bailed you guys out? How about bailing out one of the Federal worker drones during the shutdown? Puhleeze??), and food to buy, and utilities to pay.
Who can knit?
