Thank you, Uncle Scam... We are now a non-income family. DH will be applying for unemployment on Monday. I'm picking up some work at minimum wage, working my friends farm... So, were celebrating! I'm hosting an All Furlough's Eve party tonight, here is the invite-
Come commiserate!! Sorry, there will be no food or drink provided. God forbid you need a cab home- there just ain't no money for it! You can bring your own sustenance, but be prepared to fight for it. Donations of canned food cover your entry fee... And don't drink too much (IF you can afford to, that is), you need to be on your game for the Unemployment line! Wear your best Uncle Scam (err, Sam) costume, but don't expect prizes. Raiding and looting of the local grocery will not be permitted (unless you bring back enough to share). See ya there!
Yeehaw! Fuck. "Although the weather outside is frightful, the fire is so delightful... and since there's no Federal dough, let's furlough, let's furlough, let's furlough!"
