Coming soon: Tales From the Furlough

I'll spare you all the gory details and give you the roundup; after round one of layoffs at the library, all full-time employees will be taking two one-week furloughs, one in second quarter 2009 and the other in Q3 2009. I'm looking at using my Q2 furlough to head west to do some Drupal work with some friends. My Q3 furlough is likely to take me to Seattle. Plans are still nebulous on the latter one, though.

Nebulous yet nefarious, I might add.

As for us, we're okay; my job has never been the main breadwinner, which helps. Some of my co-workers, though, are not so lucky. For them, I'm worried.

Might as well make the best of it; camera + time off = Tales From The Furlough.


So when you're forced to take the furlough are you "furloughed" or "furlaid"?


'Furlaid' is vaguely squicky. Which is why I may be forced to use it. If I don't, you WILL.

... exactly why I posted it to your website :) Use it in daily conversation.

"So, I hear Melissa got furlaid last night. I guess that's why she's not at work today"
