Endured 4.75 hours of meeting with vendors, support teams and others to coordinate this year's Pioneer Heritage Days, coming in October. A new venue seems to have everyone's panties in knots and there were those who wanted to 'expand' into more current day stuff. The idea was to have late 1800's living and technology shown and reenacted as accurately as possible. For reasons unknown, more 'mainstream and profitable' pressures have come to bear, and the original folks are up in arms against the young blood stepping up. As vice president and chief moderator I had to find a middle ground. Listen to each side and make the call. The more I heard and the longer it went on, the greater the desire to pour petrol over myself and light a pipe.... Another meeting is scheduled for Saturday afternoon. I must remember to eat before I go. Maybe a big bowl of Grape Ape afterwards...

I can sympathize with. I have endured many project meetings that have gone for 2-3 hours with only 5-10 minutes that had any barring on my scope of work. Nothing more mind numbing in the world.
