Not The Best Way To Start The Week

Showing up to find this little reminder isn't a great way to start the morning.

To: AFP Team
From: Tallulah P. Coworker
Subject: Reminder

Please remember that our proposal meeting will take place on Tuesday. I've reserved the conference room from 8:00 AM until 3:00 PM.

Holy hell. That's (begins finger counting) seven hours! At least I brought my power cord so there will be no repeats of the laptop battery incident. Oh, and I swear I'll stop blogging about work soon. Really. I'll try.

Ugh. Good Luck!! Take a pillow for your butt, take extra laptop batteries, oh and take a laser pen, because those are always fun to shine on the wall distracting everyone! =)

oh, i could never promise to not blog about work. that would cut out at least 43.67% of content from my blog. I'd be left with quizzes and posts about redesigns. Really, no one needs to be subjected to that.

Blog about what ails you, regardless of topic. It's the only way.

7 hours of good times! I hope the coffee is good.

Suckity-suck-suck. Suck suck.

You could always do "Lingo bingo".

The younger engineers and I at my previous place of employment got a bunch of words that aren't used correctly and are used often at corporate meetings. We turned them into Bingo cards and played very secretly. You'd put a pink sticky on your notepad facing everyone when you won.

I got out of a meeting that ran an hour and a half and could hardly hang in that long, so my sympathies are with you... maybe they'll order you some Baja for lunch?

Luckily we never have meetings in my lovely world. I just want the cactus back to posting during working hours.

What a doozy. I've never been in a meeting that long. That's just craziness.
