1. friends who think I can find humor in anything
2. the pressure to be creative
3. deciding external pressure is a stupid reason for doing anything
4. not having to be at the kind of meeting where I have to vote on whether we're going to take a vote or not*
5. the unanimous** vote to not think about meetings at all for the next three days, minimum
*I wish the knowledge of how much not being at one of those meetings doesn't suck were theoretical, but, alas, 'tis not.
**One of one in favor
