Make sure you read the Washington Post article on what happens now that the shutdown is (temporarily) over; it’s packed with information, much of which I wasn’t aware of.
Sorry to turn this open thread into another News Roundup.

I’ve got an Ask a Manager column in there, to balance out all of the government shutdown stories.
I’m supposed to start working for the IRS in February — and I need this job.
Spent the entire day on the couch, watching television in my pajamas, and obsessively checking the Washington Post for shutdown updates.
