Just an easy 6 mile run this morning – nothing exciting to report.

At work this morning I got a meeting notice for 12:00-1:00 meeting. The organizer said “Sorry about this time but it was the only open time.” Oh really? I wonder why. Does it have anything to do with a thing called LUNCH? If this was the only time this has happened it wouldn’t be a big deal – but it seems to happen about once every month or two.

During the meeting she kept talking about flushing things out. I didn’t have the heart to tell her it is fleshing things out. I’m not sure where the saying comes from. Given some of the projects I’ve had a work lately, I’d like to flush them out.

I've actually set up a recurring "Tentative" appointment everyday from 11:30 to 1:00 in my Outlook calendar. It doesn't stop people from trying to schedule meetings at lunch, but at least now they usually ask first.

Hey Rob,

I only work till 4, whereas a lot of my co-workers stay till 5. Leaving as little as 15 minutes late can add 30 minutes to my commute. I found that out after people started scheduling meetings after 4. Now I block that off.
