I was in a meeting discussing issues that would probably make normal people die of boredom. A director of strategic planning was talking about an upcoming project and said that we were going to try to roll out a pilot program for this project so that we could assess the feasibility of the solution, but she didn't like the word "pilot."
With a completely deadpan affect, I suggested "limited scope production implementation." She liked that. I died a little on the inside.
Perhaps I should consider using my powers for good.

Remember that flash-in-the-pan political nonentity, Joe the Plumber? He is known in real life as Samuel Wurzelbacher. In any case, his name is attached to some TEA Party web site where a bunch of angry and reactionary people post screeds about how kids should turn down their music and how darker people should stay off the streets so us nice pale folks don't have to think about them. Someone put my name on a list to receive his daily digest e-mail.
Yesterday, Joe the Plumber's digest had the usual effluvia, but I clicked on one or two of the links, because this helps me predict what nonsense I will hear from the usual suspects at upcoming family gatherings. The content of the article is not really important, either for the purposes of my observation or in general, but the thing that amused me was that Joe the Plumber misspelled his own name in his sign-off.

My experience with music directors is that they have a predilection for bad puns.
GDad: ...and if anyone needs a ride up to the recording session, I'll be leaving from Downtown between 8:00 and 8:15. Just meet me at the walkway.
Director: The covered walkway? The car pool tunnel?

We have informative lunch presentations once in a while. They're called "brown bags," in that you are supposed to bring your own lunch. This week's brown bag is being sponsored by the corporate health group, and it's about the importance of colonoscopies as part of an overall health picture.

We were in sunny Florida. More on that to follow.
Last night, however, I had a long dream involving getting completely lost in a multipart parking garage that had gates, blockades, and those spikes that keep people from going out the wrong way. I ended up having to video my search to the exit with my phone held over my shoulder so I could see whence I came rather than where I was going on my way out. I like that I was thinking about that even in my dream.
