And The World Keeps On Turning....



That song sums up how I feel about my job right now. It's all about going through the motions right now I tell you. There is so much I could vent about right now but in a nutshell, the Head of my Department is one of those people who think they know it all, a kiss ass and a glory hog. My immediate supervisor is as lazy as ever, I do most of her work but she gets the glory and doesn't want to learn anything new since that involves work. The CEO is a dinosaur stuck in the past, won't step out of the box, micromanages us instead of doing her job (fund-raising) and also doesn't want to learn anything new at all (the next time I'm called to her office to help with a simple function in Word 2007 someone is going to get it!). So if any of you have been noticing the lessening frequency of my blogging and the plummeting standards blame it on me trying to keep my sanity while working with and for idiots. Yes, I know someone out there is going to tell me to get a new job, in the next 3 months I'm putting out my feelers because the economy right now is rubbish. Finding jobs is a chore but don't worry The Acolyte will prevail, He always does.

In other news, things are so narrow for many school districts out here in the States that 4 day school weeks are becoming the order of the day. Also don't think that cost sharing is a uniquely Kenyan issue, government funding to local schools doesn't figure in the cost of play grounds and sports. So schools have to fund those by themselves and of course the cost is passed on to the parents who are already over burdened by rising gas costs among other things. A county in my state recently lost it's accreditation due to poor management by the School Board, this means among other things that kids graduating high school from there aren't eligible for government aid and many colleges won't consider them for scores at all. So many of them have transferred schools but the catch is that their old schools won't and can't bus them to their new schools some of which are over an hours drive away, so of course the parents have to drive them or they have to catch several public buses to get there. Yes things aren't as rosy as they seem on the high school movies you watch.

Anyway let me stop moaning and share some fashion disasters.....



I think someone shouldn't have ran away from their appointment at the salon
