Notes from the gutter.

It's funny cause it's true

Have you seen the movie, "I Heart Huckabees?" If not, you should, because it's a strange and wonderful and thought-provoking movie about seeking out the meaning of life and establishing your existence separate from what society expects from you. And it's really funny. But besides that, there are a few scenes that are dead-on accurate about working in the NGO community. The amount of in-fighting and pissing matches about how much we should be working within the system versus holding tight to our core beliefs has to be seen to be believed. This is partially why the left has been thwarted recently. The right doesn't have any dissention in the ranks, or if it does, it's ruthlessly crushed before it can get anyone off-message.

Why do I even bring this up? I spent most of today at a planning meeting with several other NGOs who work in my issue areas. We spent the last half hour arguing about not arguing about having more meetings. Joy. Now I'll have to be at here late tonight in order to get caught up with actual work I couldn't do by being in that meeting. Double joy.
