I haven’t done one of these memes in awhile but this one is pretty cool.
Aside from the martini, which I never carry to the office, and the tie width, that’s not bad.

Aside from the martini, which I never carry to the office
I know I advocate doing drugs to deal with inane office meetings.
However, a few martinis work almost as well if you’re in a pinch.
I’m game, believe me. Alas, whilst DC business attire hasn’t evolved much since the Mad Men days, the drinking culture has.
As James Thurber said, one martini is all right, two is too many, and three isn’t nearly enough.
I prefer Christopher Hitchens’ variant: Martinis are like breasts; one is too few and three is too many.
I got a pretty good likeness of myself, would be cool to have a place were we could post them.
When I was a clerk for my dad many years ago, the lawyers would be in the conference room having martinis at 11:30. You knew it was Friday when some of them had secretaries sitting on their laps.
We have a simple answer for inane meeting where I work. No meetings over 10 minutes. Its amazing how much work you get done when you are not in meetings all day.
