"Confusion?" says Confusious

I'm confused and annoyed. I work for the Public Health system for my state. My office will not allow us to spend time on websites that don't pertain to work (ooooops!) such as facebook, myspace, youtube, or any other place where you download or upload information, pictures, or music. We are also not permitted to go on AIM or any other chat programs. But, they are encouraging us to make a Twitter account and follow them on their posts. That's right. My state's Public Health system has a Twitter account and they want us to use work time to follow them on the H1N1 (Swine flu) outbreak and other subjects and post back any questions or thoughts/feelings. Does that make any sense to you? Nope, me either. I'm annoyed by this.

In other news, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. My last day at work is May 29th. Yup, just a few weeks away. No, I still haven't heard when I should be starting at my next job. I talked to my future boss the other day and she said the paperwork was in it's last stages for approval on April 3rd, but no paperwork is moving in the department that it's currently at. The budget crisis has been putting everything on hold and there's no telling when I will, or if I will be accepted to start work at the other branch that I'm supposed to be moving to.
Keep us in your thoughts this weekend. Phillip is getting a moving truck and we will be filling it up as much as possible to take a large load to our temporary apartment. Lord help me!
