I started the day with a migraine, so my bullshit meter was already maxed out when I walked into the meeting. So there I was in the thrid meeting of the week to talk about the same bullshit we've discussed for the past two years, and this dipshit wannabe Dean that's training at the school took the ideas that I and my co-worker have been presenting - for YEARS - and said, "These were my ideas" while the actual Dean, who is never usually around and always clueless, was there to praise her on a job well done. But I must admit, stealing the ideas of others and using them as your own is a good indicator that you will make a fine administrator.

A few minutes later, my supervisor pulls the same stunt - steals my co-workers idea he heard the day before and presents it to the Dean and President as his own. Why, we're all thrilled to be an endless fountain of your success, as we sit at the bottom of the shit pile and admire your weasle skills!

I shouldn't be stunned or amazed by any of this, but that little piece of me that wants to believe in the decency of others just hasn't completely withered and died yet.

We broke for lunch and a few of us went to Domo, a lovely Japanese restaurant, where I proceeded to regain my calm center. It was amazingly good and much needed. If you're ever in the Denver area, I highly recommend it.

I returned to a snide email over a question I had asked that apparently pissed off the Registrar. Usually I can overlook such things and take the high road, but not today. Today I replied snidely back with a vailed insult of her writing skills. I'm doing this with a migraine, don't fuck with me.

My moment of zen for the day? A co-worker suggested that the ever morphing $500 tax rebate we may or may not get, might keep students from dropping out. I shit you not. This of course anticipates that our students file taxes. Overlooking that for a moment, it covers about 1 credit hour of a three credit class. Or one month's rent if they have 3 roommates. Or most likely a new gaming system so they can play World of Warcraft all night and ascend to the ranks of a level 36 Elf Master named Thorod. Yeah.

My lunch really was lovely though ----> go to Domo
