Bored Meeting

I have to sit through a lot of meetings in my professional and personal life. I'm always trying to figure out ways to deal with my extreme discomfort and embarrassment when some people talk (and talk and talk and talk) without conveying anything that interests me. Lately, I've taken to scribbling what's really on my mind in the margins of my notes. I use super-short hand so no one knows that "tgiai" means this guy is an idiot, or that "pstfu" means please shut the f--- up. At my wit's end in a recent meeting, I wrote "dtgddtd" for does this guy drink during the day? Then I had to check myself with "dislt" -- do I sound like this?

well at least we have that in common. Unless there's some local nut riled up about an issue, local council meetings tend to be bimonthly snoozefests

tonight I was in the meeting of all meetings. Two hours of rich, blond, chatty, rich women sipping wine in a living room talking about how they value that their kids can feed homeless people. Looking out the big pane window at the yachts in the Marin harbor, I had to bite the inside of my mouth to keep it shut. Wish I had thought of writing coded messages to myself - it might have helped me stay sane.
