My first stab at Live Blogging

Conference call (all times Eastern):

1402: Call conference number, supply PIN, connected!

1403: "Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah."

1406: "Blah blah blah."

1408: "Blah blah blah blah."

1413: "Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah."

1420: "Blah blah blah blah blah." I once overheard my sister's daughter and three of her friends debate about what the best Hilary Duff song is. That conversation had more verve and topical content than this one, by a wide margin.

1425: CLOSING REMARKS! Whoohoo!

1428: Shit. Someone likes the sound of their own voice. It sounds something like this:

1429: "Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah."



1433: "Blah."

1441: "Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah."

1444: It occurs to me that the only thing that could possibly be more boring than this would be cataloguing Howard Dean's virtues. There is apparently no shortage of people who like the sound of their own voice.

1446: "Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah." These people are unbelievable. My Kingdom for a crosscontinental Taser.



1450: "Blah blah blah blah."

1453: Ooooooooooo! CONFLICT! Gauntlet toss mas grande!! Get'im, Girl!

1455: Oy. Gauntlet rebuffed. Cheryl needs a window office before she gets uppity.

1456: "Blah blah blah blah."

1457: My Kingdom for the fortitude required to inform these people that I've grown maximally weary of being the only prepared person on this vapid call every week.

1459: "Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah."

1501: This is why I have a flask of Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey in my desk.

1503: "Blah blah blah blah."

1506: OMG.

1509: This sucks.

1511: OMG!

1512: "Thanks everyone!"

1513: It's over.
