Absentee

Urgh, Monday mornings after a long weekend are just that much harder, you know?

I have to leave shortly to spend three hours in a meeting, which with travel time is going to swallow up more than half of the day. (Just for fun, while I'm there I think I'll imagine I'm in an episode of "The Office".) So I probably won't be around much today, or at least not until late in the day. Have fun.

[Updated: Ok, I'm back. It wasn't too bad as meetings go, even the opening prayer was, well, rather secular in tone. Oh, didn't I tell you? Our organisation opens every meeting with a prayer. On that point, DO NOT get me started, k? Thankfully I wasn't asked to provide it, even though they did ask if anyone had a special one they would like to contribute...

::crickets::

But a more salient point, who holds a meeting until nearly 2pm and doesn't provide lunch? Rude.]

Three hour meeting. Sounds fun. If it wasn't already over I'd swap you for the two day team meeting I have to go to on Wednesday and Thursday.

Wow. I don't know how you do it. You're a stronger man than I...

Hey Andrew, you know I love ya and your work n’all, but if people are forcing you to participate in religious ritual against your will I reckon you’ve got to speak out!

A 16yo did just that recently. Takes guts, I know.

How cheap! Even jesus fed the masses with loaves and one fish.

Or was it one loaf and fishes?

I dunno. I get all those parables mixed up. I think they throw coins at beggars at the temple in one. Or three coins in a fountain, like.

I was kind of hoping they'd do the water into wine thing, but no dice.

Was a fast part of the agenda?

How about 'Dear God...may this meeting not last three hours.'
