It's not ME

I swear to you that I don't mind having meetings. But I dread certain things about meetings. Usually I get to the point that I am very nearly like the guy above on the left. Now you will recall that our team was down a person for a while; that position has been filled for about 2 months now. The new guy is intelligent and funny and I get along with him quite well. My preference is for meetings to get to the point, have productive banter, and then move on. Oh, well today that wouldn't happen. Just as I was getting bored, I realized that the new guy was way more bored that me. It was a one-off meeting that we have on occasion. We had a guest as part of the group. This guest likes to talk circles and say nothing, but has a knack for making it sound pretty impressive. But it's not and it puts you to sleep. So while I was trying to get my meeting-dose of-zombie-sleep in - all of a sudden hear a very faint hummmm. And another - hummmm, now with a distinctive beat. Well don't ya know, it sounded like the Saturday Night Live Mike Myers tune "I know my name is Simon - I like to do drawrings!" I was good for the rest of the meeting, since I knew that someone else was totally more bored that me. AWESOME!!!!

I do my best to pierce the speaker's brain with my laser vision. It usually keeps things moving.
