    Yes. We had a great, rambling chat over dinner. Turns out, we go OT even in person.

    I was up his way on business, so the Hobbit wasn't in attendance.

    If they followed the procedure there is a form in Microsoft outlook they fill out and low and behold everyone that needs to know that can assist them is alerted and the room is even secured for them.

    However if they send an e-mail in Microsoft outlook that says, I have a meeting in such and such a room with no other info then big deal, who cares, have fun. But when they get there and noting is setup for them, and then they show up at my desk yelling like an idiot, well.... sucks to be them.... follow procedure and this type of thing would not happen.

    I have started looking at every e-mail that comes in and sending them the link to the proper form and giving them directions how to use it, since they apparently forgot. But I can't catch them all between all our regional offices, NYC and here.

    Yeah. Rather more effort went into getting back on topic than I tend to show here on MT.

    Well, that's just being friendly - providing a free service out of the goodness of your heart. Right?

    I think part of that is the limited timetable. If that wasnt a concern i dont think either of us would ever manage to hold a topic.

    Yup.

    But alas, I remembered something from when my (use to be) Buddhist mother-in-law lived with us....... spent some time listening to this and ignoring others, so for now, the qinna lessons have been postponed



    This use to play constantly in her house in Beijing,, and when she first moved in with us, it has a strange calming effect on me and eventually I didn't even know it is playing, until I actually think about it.

    That's ok. Contrary to popular opinion, I am extremely introverted. So, if I had to meet a totally new person in a strange place full of other people I didn't know, it would have been tough. That's why I keep inviting you all to come over - it's easier for me to meet new people on my own turf. Besides, I can't roast a duck at someone else's restaurant. ;)
