Default What are you doing during the shut down?

This isn't a debate thread on budget or anything to that effect. No arguments on which side is right or wrong.

As a government employee I find myself temporarily without a job today. I still have to report in to receive further instructions at my normal time but fully plan on being at my favorite local Micro Brewery by noonish enjoying my favorite beer and a veggie burger!

I may even go and pick up supplies from my LHBS for my next batch, a cherry tripel. Not sure on the recipe yet though.

Any who as said earlier this isn't for flame wars or party bashing. Let us know what you plan on doing with these added days off

I'll go about my daily business as though there is no government or shut down, just like always.

No real change for my daily routine. At least I don't need to worry about OSHA showing up today.

I've got a friend that is now back to being a housewife for a while.

I am lucky enough to be an exempted employe -- I get to continue working.
The people in charge of getting us paid, however, are all furloughed.

Exempted? Nice may I ask what you do? They have essentially shut down our base with very minimal staffing

I do farmers markets in VA in areas that are heavily influenced by all branches of the government (military).

Looks like I can expect no money for the remainder of this year. People who work for the military do not go shopping when they don't get paid. Poor bastards are risking it all for God and country and we can't get our SH!T together enough to give them a pay check.... Oh, but keep fighting!

It's pathetic.

My "unplanned" time off will be spent transfering an IPA and Belgian IPA, a SMASH Pale, Blackberry Cider and ofcourse drinking more Buzzbomb Brown Ale and McQuaker Oatmeal Stout! If it goes on more than a few days then I'll move up a brew session. Already have the ingredients so no dent in the wallet..

And ignoring the news. If it wasnt' for the news who would really know that the government is closed?
