Things I have thought in user group meetings recently

  • How does one know if one is Fergalicious or not? I am up in the gym just workin' on my fitness, but the boys are not in fact linin' down the block just to watch what I got.
  • Man, the head of nursing sounds like the koala in the old Qantas commercials.
  • Why do you think flipping the two departments will make things better? The building is symmetrical! Each side is the same!!
  • Should I start using retinol? I'm 34, but I do live in a high desert climate.
  • OhdearGodinheavenquitpickingovertheplansyou'llberetiredinafewyearsandnoneofthiswillmatter.
  • Man, my elbows hurt from leaning over this table on the plans all morning.
  • I'm glad Gretchen is telling them to prioritize instead of me--it allows me to just be the architect and not the Bad Evil Architect Who Won't Give You Just the Building You Want Despite the Fact That We Don't Have the Room to Give You Everything.
  • My stomach's gotten flatter since I haven't made brownies in a couple of weeks. I wonder if I can keep that up until we go to Miami in June.
  • Yes, honey, I know your husband is an architect. Mine's an architect too. Yours designs high school gyms and athletic fields, and I do healthcare facilities. Stand down.
  • Eeerrgnnh, was that a PMS cramp?!
  • You know, I may in fact be quite Fergalicious.
  • Why are all of Glasnost Construction's project managers from Germany, Czechoslovakia, or Russia? They all sound like Boris and Natasha!
  • "Making brownies" sounds like a scatological euphemism.
  • Oh, now you deign to grace us with your presence at the meeting? How charming!
  • Yes, that's how long seven feet is. You have plenty of room for two people to work up urine specimens side by side.
  • I'd sure like to make brownies in this physician's car on a hot day.
  • I could go for an Izze and a footrub.
  • Good Gawd, my 90-minute meeting turned into a 160-minute free-for-all! Get me outta here!
  • At least I'm wearing cute shoes. Sometimes, cute shoes just save the day.

Jeez, and to think I just made shopping lists during those endless faculty meetings a few years ago! Yours are much more entertaining, Pixie!

Depends. Are you tasty?

I'd like to take credit for the format of this post.

:)

I can already tell - Pixie and I should never ever sit next to each other at a Very Important MEeting.

My day is brighter now.

A few thoughts I had before 9am.

Her cubical is 8 feet away. Is it necessary to yell over the wall? Just walk over there.
This architect hates me. I never have good news for him.
So since the janitor attended the last meeting before submittal, HE gets the final say in finishes? Hmm.
Why do 40-something year old architects still think black turtlenecks are hip and trendy?
Do my arms look poofy in this top? I should have warn something with sleeves.
Oh, now you decide to grace us with your presence at the meeting? How charming! --Wait, were we in the same meeting?

The format for this post is totally Bax's fault/idea. Me steal shamelessly! :-)

Agent M: I nearly spit coffee when I read your response. I am occasionally tasty, but I think sometimes I'm just gamey.

Chris: I...I think we *were* in the same meeting! And yes, the black turtlenecks...why, God, why!?

Miss Kitty said...

They "make brownies" at the Dutch Oven Bakery, you know! :-P

Black turtleneck, black slacks, grey jacket. Saw it Weds at a meeting. Did the architect that was speaking not get the memo that we're not required to dress this way? Particularly in May in Texas? Love the post! I think we've all been in those meetings.

Mile High Pixie said...

Logodog: black turtlenecks in Texas in May? Hell, black turtlenecks in Texas at anytime sounds like a bad idea. Even if the weather calls for it, the locals won't think much of you...

PEOPLE. THINK. 40+. Male. We are talking about MEN who don't want to admit they have double-triple-quadruple chins. We see your turdle neck and raise you a Flower Power mini skirt.
