Mo and Larry were there

Yet another committee meeting this AM. I have lost track of which subgroup of which research theme of which national network it is supposed to represent. Seems I am not the only one because the clinicians who chaired the meeting (Mo and Larry were there but Curly sent his apologies) wanted to change the title of the working group (or is it a focus group?). Anyway a mailshot to the whole campus inviting interested parties to attend resulted in two new suckers rolling up. Meanwhile several people had sent their apologies so we were down to 5, plus the secretary taking minutes. I felt sorry for her listening to the windbags. How can you generate useful minutes from egocentrical rambling? I would suggest one action point- no more meetings! To add insult to injury, there was supposed to be a talk but the speaker did not turn up. Apparently she got lost going to the last meeting, so it would be advisable to send a cab for her next time. Or invest in video conferencing technology. As usual the main conclusions were that informal soundings needed to be taken, and that another meeting should be organised.

After this painful ordeal, I will be going to the dentist. I must be a masochist!
