be wary of meetings without agendas

2 hour meetings that start at 9:30am to discuss a meeting in two weeks should not involve lunch, several glasses of wine and end after 5:00pm.

Just saying.

Wow. Just....wow. At least there were drinks involved in there. :P

Babycurl and Mr. Curl were talking last week in the car about what she does for "work" and what he does for work. She then asked me, "What do you do for work?" I said, "Mommy has meetings...."

Although, I think you've got me beat with this one.

"Mommy has meetings...."
Yeah, that's how I describe my job to my godchild. That and I print a book like a yellow pages.

This meeting was brutal because the boss didn't really know what she wanted but she wanted something like...

At one point the VP leaned over and said, "let them wander off... I think they are on to something".

It was actually a productive meeting all things considered. BUT I had things planned for today. And then I found out that our budget meeting is on Friday when I wanted the day off.

Sucks to be an adult and an "essential" department head.

... and it was good wine.

But my plan for the day was a 2hr meeting, not a nearly 8hr meeting.

The boss was winestorming again, I take it?

No. The winestorming was the after meeting (which started around 2:45) to discuss another project. But there was winestorming involved.

Sadly, the couple ideas that we came up with in the bar were really good. And will continue to be good even without the presence of alcohol.

That sucks. Sorry, Gatz. As caitrin said, at least there was wine.

I'm sensing a consensus here... ;)

Hang in there, cupcake. At least it's not *Monday* night ---- the weekend's coming.

Not fast enough, I know, but faster than if it were Monday...
