let's talk government shutdown for a minute. funny how dc draws me right back into the political aspect of things. in spokane i never even used the word government or politics or anything of the sort. but now i am smarter-just having left spokane (i kid, i kid), and i actually know what is going on. but let me tell you somethings. this government shutdown, i mean potential shutdown could really screw with a few things. for instance. my darling. he is currently doing and externship now with aforementioned government AND he does not have all his hours yet. hours he needs to graduate law school. people! this is serious. here is another thing it is screwing up that directly a(e)ffects (i have such trouble with those words) me. if the government shuts down, so does ford's theater and if ford's theater shuts down so does liberty smith and if liberty smith shuts down, my friend matt anderson is out of a sweet acting gig and if he is out of a sweet acting gig, how the heck am i supposed to see him in his play???!!! riddle me that? i am supposed to see it saturday matinee and government shutdown is friday, midnight. great timing government. ugh.
