Break Time

8 Beach

I’m on spring break from now until April 1, so I’m going on my vacation schedule.  Posting will be light and variable; I have a lot of writing, napping, crosswords, and TiVo to catch up on.  I might even take a trip or two to a place like this.

It’s a tough job, but I’m willing to take it.  What can I say; I’m just that kind of guy.

6 barks and woofs on “Break Time

  1. I’m with Rook. I could use a week right now, but getting time off is about as easy as getting gun legislation passed.

  2. Would it make you feel any better if you knew that “spring break” is actually furlough time and we don’t get paid for it? They spread the pain out over the year so it’s not a shock, but it’s still five unpaid days.

    • Probably not. But particularly in the Year of the Sequester it’s worth mentioning more often: every story out there about real people in the public sector impacted by bad/stupid budget decisions helps hammer home the two great truths about the situation: there is such a thing as a productive government job, and real people in those jobs are really being hurt by all the GOTea budget wingnuttery.
