On the Impending Government Shutdown

CNN.com has got a good article detailing what will happen if a Federal government shutdown occurs this week, in particular which services will continue and which won't.

Government shutdowns are stupid, and this one won't do either party any favors, but it's important to recognize that they're not the end of the world either. Did you know that between 1977 and 1995, the U.S. government shut down 15 times? We survived those, and we'll survive this one too, if it happens. Stay informed, and don't panic.

They Call Me MISTER Kaufman(n)

Alexa and I closed on the apartment this afternoon! We are now officially first-time homeowners! And it only took three hours because all the paperwork had my last name spelled wrong and no one noticed until halfway through, not even me because I'm so used to seeing it misspelled, and then we had to start over!

The picture above is what our kitchen and the hallway to the bedroom looks like.

I can't freaking wait to move in!
