Hmm. This day has not begun well.
I tried taking a new route to work today. It turns out to be far slower than anticipated. So I arrived at about 9:27am for my 9:30am meeting. The meeting that was marked "Location: TBD" in the invitation.
I dock the laptop (twice--the first time it decided not to see my USB mouse, as it often does). Check mail. Nothing from the person organizing the meeting. I look him up on our Intranet. No cell phone or pager info.
Look up another person who was invited. Call cell phone. Leave voicemail message.
Look up another. No cell, but has pager. Send pager message.
It's now 10:00am. So I'm assuming it wasn't important that I be at the 9:30am - 10:00am meeting after all.
Amusing side note: In running the spelling check on this entry (yes, I do that sometimes), the software suggested that I replace "voicemail" with "vaginal."
