I wish all meetings could be like my last one

Purpose of meeting: to discuss the format and content of a progress report, due on December 30th.
  • I arrived a few minutes late as the elevators were all messed up and I don't have access to the stairs in that building. BUT I was still the first one there.
  • The next two people to show up were happy to talk about turduckens and Christmas geese instead of project milestones.
  • Then we had a very satisfying argument about the Copenhagen talks.
  • Then the PI showed up and announced that he'd just taken another look at the dates covered by the report, and the dates of all project milestones.
Conclusion of meeting: no report needed
  • So we all sat around and compared holiday plans, and talked about skiing.
  • Then the receptionist gave me some gingerbread on my way out.


  1. Wish that was my last meeting - got grilled for about an hour......not nice stuff either :( Only plus is that I wasn't wholly responsible and the person who was happened to be in hospital. Best timing ever I think!

  2. I'm sorry, that doesn't sound like any fun at all :( But yeah, good timing, could have been worse!
