I'm a Doodler...

Okay, so yesterday's post is kicking my ass! Whew. I'm trying to keep up y'all, so bear with me.

In case you were wondering:

I like to draw mushrooms. Oh yeah. Hey Becki, do you mind if I borrow a post-it-note from your desk? Cool, thanks.

Can y'all guess what I was trying to figger out here?

I take extensive notes at meetings.

16 Leg Humps:

Kjersten said...

In regards to your pie charts. My guess is you are charting out how two people spend their day.

I = In bathroom
G = Grumbling
L = Lunch
W = Working

Conclusion is that 1 out of every 16 man-hours is spent actually working.

Storm said...

kjersten's assessment sounds pretty good. Although why mike would never take a lunch is beyond me.

Aren't most meetings like that? An hour of talking where five minutes would have sufficed?

Zube Girl said...

Kjersten- You are so clever. That's not the right answer, but it very well could have been!

Storm- Ugh. YES! I wrote it because the meeting had pretty much ended an hour before, but some assholes think we care about the answers to their million and one questions.

Z said...

Yeah - I like the third one best. Mind you, I would laugh hysterically while writing it and probably have to come up the front and show it to the rest of the 'class'.

Storm said...

hmmm.... something just dawned on me.... and after checking one of you links out, I know who the pie charts are about, if not what they're about. Oy. This has been simmering on the back burner all day.. darn you zube.

sk said...

OMG! What a good idea. I should publish all the notes we wrote during our teacher inservices. We are awful!

Storm said...

Lounging? Laughing?

You're gonna have to tell me just so I can stop thinking about it, lol!

Zube Girl said...

Z- I might've laughed if I wasn't so concerned about dying of boredom!

Storm- Hee. Howzabout I give a clue. I was trying to figure something out about our potential kiddos. Does that help?

Zube Girl said...

Ooh, SK- Didn't mean to skip ya! I would love to see those!

Phil said...

Okay, so it's something with heritage.

G = German?
I = Irish? Italian?
W = Welsh?
L = Latvian? Lithuanian?

As for meetings and blathering, I know exactly how you feel. The last manager I had held a 2+ hour weekly staff meeting. I say "2+" because he'd schedule it for 2 hours but we'd ALWAYS go over that. Of course, whenever he was on vacation or out of the office, we'd get the meeting over and done with in 15 minutes or less, and still cover all the pertinent info. :)


Zube Girl said...

Phil- Ding, ding, ding!!! You are good Phil!

G = German
I = Irish
W = Welsh
L = Lithuanian

Well done!

The note lacks doodles Or perhaps a characture of coworkers or maybe stick figure theatre anything that screams thoroughly bored and trapped in this situation, though the text alone express the contempt for coworkers very well all by itself

Cassiopeia said...

I never would have been able to guss what you were doodling...but now that i know, it makes perfect sense!

(I like your mushroom ;))

kyknoord said...

Pity Phil ruined it for the rest of us. I thought you were trying to figure out who gets the biggest piece of the pie. By the way, those meeting notes are just brilliant.

Kjersten said...

Oh my gosh, you have a first name! It never would have dawned on me... Zube Girl just fits so well.

Zube Girl said...

Rich- Actually, my coworkers rock. This was an 'industry' meeting. And, I think the absence of stick figures speaks volumes! Thanks for stopping by!

Cassiopeia- Thanks. I think my little mushroom guy is cute as hell!

Kyknoord- I could fax them to you, so you don't have to bother taking notes at your next meeting.

Kjersten- Isn't that a funny thing? I once hung out with a group of girls from a message board, and could not stop calling them by their handles. It was embarrassing!
