Meeting agenda for 4.7.13, 23:00
Present: Few and far between
Item one: The Mysterious Parcel
Comment: Slip from post office through letterbox alerting household to presence of parcel being held to ransom by sorting office. Sorting office claim ‘random’ check by customs incurred a VAT charge and a handling charge for charging the VAT charge. Household not expecting parcels from abroad. Further investigation required
Report: Upon paying the release fee, parcel transpired to be housewarming gift from relatives in New Zealand. Well wrapped in three colours of bubble-wrap (sufficient for one colour each for Niece, Neff and Husby) and layers of protective cardboard, gift turned out to be gorgeous, original artwork by local(?) artist. Household *thrilled*
Item two: New Fish Tank Report
Comment: Tank status update required.
Report: Filter remains operational and tank has not flooded down back of fancy, recycled cabinet. Plants are still alive and green. Bogwood has not absorbed sufficient water to remain weighted and has shifted position. Rectification not urgent – can be achieved at same time as moving that plant which ended up in a stupid, non-visible corner.
Item three: Sleep deprivation
Comment: Three hours sleep prior to a busy day is insufficient and a ten-minute nap will do only temporary good. Ensure adequate levels of rest from now on for as long as maintainable.
Report: Taken under advisement
Item four: There’s something strange in the Gangnam-hood
Comment: Who you gonna call?
Item five: The
travesty state of international postage
Comment: Approx. ten providers searched. Prices ranged from very reasonable to utterly outrageous. Important to know why.
Report: Some courier services just don’t want to take your mail elsewhere.
Item six: Potential further interview with Sub-Conscious
Comment: Explore possibility and provide feedback on idea potential
Report: Audience feedback strongly positive. Subject in two minds about participation but could probably be convinced with sufficient flattery.
Item seven: Waffling
Comment: It has become apparent that ‘Considerings’ occasionally faces the problem of nearly drowning under the weight of its own words. Requires action.
Report: Verbosity and platitudinous ponderosity both noted and efforts will be made to duly purge them from posts. Streamlining activated and ‘tangent’ button set to 0.1
Any Other Business
