people for the conservation of limited amounts of indignation

Often during meetings, I take notes. I want to say it's not because it gives the illusion I in any way care about what goes on during meetings, but that's a lie. It's there to give the illusion I care. Usually, I have no idea what I wrote and find myself vaguely surprised days later when occasionally a verbatim speech by someone gets marked down (which explains why my hand ached). Then again, sometimes, I have no idea.

Most recently in the middle of something else entirely.

Somewhere in here I also break into an adjective noun game:

...and a brief set of pictures illustrating a.) a happy sun over a smiling flower with fluffy clouds and b.) a bicycle captioned "SAD BICYCLE". Randomly in the middle of an explanation of testing procedure, I wrote a line about wikipedia.

According to the above, I have volunteered to work on the team project. That does explain the email I keep getting. It does not explain what the hell it is.

You take meetimg notes like I do! That is awesome. Good luck finding out what you volunteered for.

Frankly, kinda terrified.

Happily, my faith in teh sloth of government was not misplaced! They are still working on it! *happy*

*g* Yes. It is my poor me place.

Those are quite awesome notes. My post-meeting notes are always boringly organised and legible. Those look like fun to write and fun to decipher!

Yours are useful. Mine look like how they start a particularly tricky diagnosis of schizoid personality disorder. *shivers*

You had mentioned before that you wanted Xanthe to continue her series. Did you know she has?

Yes! I just started reading it last night very late. So when I get home, really good reading time.

You are writing poetry! Very *modern* poetry. Just needs a fancy-schmancy title:

Please, please tell us that you also have different color coding happening. That would only make it more awesome.

Unfortunately, no. Changing pens often gets me disturbed looks. But I do change color randomly. Three pages are in bright orange.

I think I'm a little bit in love with you.

I suspect the almost-modern-poetry up there is hypnotic.

Well, there's that. But I take notes in kind of the same way, but I color code them, but them in boxes, and sometimes add drawings, arrows, or bullet points. I understand everything perfectly, but to any would-be spies who might wish to know my laundry schedule or shopping plans, it's complete gibberish. (Hey, Nostradamus had his methods, I have mine.)
