Kumbaya Anyone?

In case you were considering a life dedicated to social work, I want to warn you that you would be subjected to training opportunities such as the following:

Bringing the Spirit to Work: Affirming Ourselves, Affirming Others
Tuesday, November 28, 2006
8:30-3:00 - Registration starts at 8:00
GC Auditorium, Level A

Did you notice that this is a DAY LONG training? Apparently, it takes a lot of time to make sure that everyone feels the love. I would rather poke myself in the eye repeatedly than to attend a training in which a group of social workers sits around affirming each other. Also, if you were wondering, the original e-mail announcement did in fact come in the lovely purple color pictured above. Somehow, the purple just makes it even more unappealing.

I wonder if we are now getting dollars for Faith Based Initiatives? Which leads me to the following Random Moment Question:

If you are affirming a client now, please mark 1.
