The beatings will continue until morale improves!

I'm not looking all that forward to this afternoon's rescheduled faculty/staff appreciation thing. For one, I've heard it through the grapevine that the "fabulous gifts" are complete shit (he was sworn to secrecy as to what they are but he's not the type to mislead). We've also heard that they're actually going to recycle the week plus old popcorn and feed it to us. Additionally, we're going to have to file outside and get nametags and tickets then sit outside and listen to the higher ups bluster about bullshit at length before they'll bother to give us the promised shit prizes. It's like forced mingling. Yes, attendance is optional, but you know that it really kind of isn't optional since it's "expected" that you show up and put on a happy face.

On a personal note, I'm not looking forward to this afternoon since I really don't want to run into the guy I recently blocked on FB. Fortunately he's not tried to contact me via other means so I'm crossing fingers that either he's not showing up to this thing today or that he'll leave me be. Since it's outside and it's sunny today, it'll help a bit that I'll wear my sunglasses and maybe a hat (oo - like a celebrity!).

Anyhoo, it is so typical of this place that to show their "appreciation" for our dedication or some such hoo-ha that instead of giving us a little monetary bonus or sending everyone gift cards to someplace, it has to be some sort of self-serving bombastic "party" that no one here down in the trenches really wants and as usual, is tossed together all half-assed but we'd better appreciate our appreciation and not complain, daggonit!
