Busier

than a one armed paper hanger with an itch.  


I am a creature of habit.  It could be my O/C personality or maybe I prefer a consistency.  Every morning,  it is pretty much the same routine.  Wake up at 0 dark  thirty, let the dogs out, fire up the coffee pot, crank up the computer, fetch the paper, let the dogs in, check my e-mails, read the online news, catch up on all my favorite blogs, check my work e-mail/schedule, answer a dozen inquiries, walk the dogs, give them their post walk chew bones, make lunch, shut down the computer, take a shower, let the dogs out one last time, jump in the car and head off to work.   


This morning, when I logged onto my work  account to check  e-mails and get a run on the day, I saw that I had meetings scheduled from 0800 until 1700 (5:00 pm).   I like to consider myself a tolerant kind of guy,  but crikey, 9 hours of meetings????  One of this is probably a meeting on trying to explain why we weren't getting our projects done.

I hate meetings....

That quote is in Airplane too, in various forms.

Does anyone like meetings? They are such a phenomenal waste of valuable work time.

No wonder your comments always show up on my blog so early. You're an early riser!

Nine hours of meetings?! I hope you at least got a free lunch out of that.

Sounds dreadful. I can't imagine SITTING for 9 hours, let alone in a meeting. So sorry.
I'm happy to meet another creature of habit, though. I do everything the same every day, and if something happens to throw me off course, I get very agitated. Just ask my children. They're constantly throwing me off course. :)

Um, yeah. It sure looks like you did!
