Yay Furlough

Since the Governor and the Legislature are playing games, it looks like that on Monday I get to have an unpaid mandatory vacation!

Things to do on furlough:

1. watch grass grow
2. watch TV

I've considered finding new employment in a new city all together, since I haven't exactly warmed to Harrisburg and I'm fairly tired of the mid-state having been here the better part of a decade, but I'm not quite ready to uproot and I started doing something new at work. Plus I have no idea where I'd live, or where I'd be comfortable living since I don't drive and that limits where I can move to. I already get looked at like I'm an alien here.

The notice I got in the mail says I can get unemployment. Or I could flip burgers with snotty teenagers at the McDonalds in the Uptown Shopping Center. Anyway, we'll see what Monday brings.

7,000 state employees applied for unemployment compensation on Monday, according to a friend in L&I. I guess that's what they found to do on their day off.
