Desperate Working Mommas
Your one-stop site for fanatical television snarking, questionable political analysis, occasional attempts to address the parenting issues facing working mothers, and halfhearted promises to stop obsessing about the entertainment industry, already! Oh, not to mention the random bitching and moaning. There's always that.

Reasons Why I Love My Job, #82:

My boss-- who has the most unfortunate likeness to Tim Curry I have ever seen (unfortunate in that my mind occasionally dresses him in lingerie, a la Dr. Frank-N-Furter from The Rocky Horror Picture Show... I KNOW, right?!)-- sends out Business Meeting of Excruciating Boredom reminder emails such as the following (names have been changed [note brackets] to protect the innocent and prevent possible Doocelike consequences):


Writers' Meeting AGENDA:

Entrance hymn.

Read minutes of last meeting, argue whether the minutes of the last meeting should include mention of the reading of the minutes from the meeting before that, which, if so, should then include the minutes of the meeting before the meeting before that meeting; decide it's all too silly and abandon reading of minutes.

Solemn observance of September birthdays.

Update from [Veronica Mars] & [Buffy] regarding [insert acronym here] and [again with the acronyms!], respectively.

Updates on Tier One & Tier Two documents from their writers.

A word or two about paperwork figures & when you can/should send a document to [seriously, we like acronyms].

Update on progress toward compliance with the [last acronym, promise!] peer review bulletin.

Brief but furious exchange of limericks in igpay atinlay (tentative).

Recessional hymn.


You see?! You don't get THAT kind of humor in the public school system, I tell you what.
*sigh*
I heart my job...
