No one knows what it's like
To be the bad cat
to be the sad cat
behind the blinds....

A meeting, for most of us, requires that you stop what you're doing at a particular time and go to a particular place. It's an interruption in what we're doing normally and requires stopping flow (if you've attained it) to get there.

Seeing a movie in a theater, for most of us, requires that you stop what you're doing at a particular time and go to a particular place. It's an interruption in what we're doing normally and requires stopping flow (if you've attained it) to get there.

A meeting usually involves a group (or groups) of people making small talk before the start.

A movie usually involves a group (or groups) of people making small talk before the start. If ads are shown, the small talk can be sparked by the ads or over the ads.

A meeting you usually attend with coworkers.

A movie you usually attend with a large number of strangers and (optional) friends and/or loved ones.

A meeting often involves discussing several topics. You may be interested and involved in all the topics, or only in a part, but generally you're there for the duration.

A movie often involves several trailers and the movie. The movie may have a plot and a subplot. You may be interested and involved in all of these, or only in a part, but generally you're there for the duration.

A meeting may end in several ways: conflicts resolved, decisions made, freeing you to go implement them; plans communicated, leading to more questions or work to be done. Or it may end in puzzlement, hurt feelings and frustration.

A movie may end in several ways: conflicts resolved, giving you a happy; or it may end in puzzlement, hurt feelings, and frustration.

If the meeting is for work, you're paid. If it's for a volunteer organization, you (presumably) get satisfaction over getting things done.

A movie you pay to attend.



This train of thought came to me when I was thinking that one of the problems I have with going to movies or watching broadcast TV are the same as I have with meetings - I have to interrupt myself for something that I don't always consider worth the interruption. The rest just came out of the same sarcastic vein ;)

On a related note: Riot Nrrd on how caring about TV is like owning a houseful of puppies.

You know you've been on LJ too long when you don't understand why "unfriend" is being celebrated as "a new word". It's freaking ancient.

Spotted on twitter:

Other fav breakfasts was oreos in a bowl with hot coffee poured over them. Yes, you read that right. I loved it as a kid.


Followups include:
[O]reos must be intact. Coffee seeps into them & makes them soft, but not too soft, there is a texture window

If the oreos get too soft they just make your coffee lumpy and it's a mess. Must eat while cookies still look like cookies.


(I am now strongly tempted to buy Oreos just so I can try that one evening as dessert.)

I was going to get my haircut this weekend, but Farzy's is on the Derby Days parade route so I think NO.

The [Seafair] Pirates are landing at Alki and milk carton boats are storming Green Lake tomorrow, so yes, Seafair is here. The Lake Washington Hydro Race & Air Show will be the weekend of July 31st.

...and why am I thinking Vashon Lavendar Festival or the Seattle Bastille Day Festival Sunday might be fun?

Have a little sanity.

1. Stop talking about politics for just a moment or two.
2. Post a reasonably-sized picture in your LJ of something pleasant, such as an adorable kitten, or a fluffy white cloud, or a bottle of booze. Something that has NOTHING TO DO WITH POLITICS.
3. Include these instructions, and share the love.
