Bleach and Breakfast Seminars

Who was the Dumb that invented the Breakfast Seminar? Who really wants to wake up at 6 to go listen to some guy talk about how to do radio ads? Ok it WAS entertertaining. And funny. And we did get free breakfast with coffee and danishes and all the waitpeople we ever could desire...
We basically sat there for an hour listening to Ricky Gervais radio spots whilst eating delicious food and not working.
But come on, it was 7am.

My experience with breakfast seminars is hideous. One time, I parked behind all the Lexuses outside a posh hotel and scored a $100 fine for parking in a clearway (later that day I scored a $50 outsdie The Brand too - good times). One other time triggered last year's new year's resolution. We were served what i term 5-star McMuffins. But instead of using hands, I went with the cutlery and tried the cut the bastards. It wouldn't cut so I tried harder until i sent the plate full of 5 star McMuffins into my lap, hollandaise sauce 'n' all. I resolved to not eat in public for the entirety of 2005.

So, the moral is: 7am is bullshit.

Hell, at least the Brand sends you to them. But do you write radio?

I remember those days :) We pretty much got 5-star McMuffins again today, but less vinegary and less in people's laps. I always wondered why you were so skinny.

Whoa. Does the salty coffee trick really work?

Nope. Never did work out why it just tasted like salty muck and not the divine chocolateyness of the promised land...
But who am I to stop you trying it for yourself.

It's not even a 7am meeting, Thom. It's a 7am watching some tool from the east coast (or UK) tell you how good they are and how crap your whole state is by comparison. But you just let it wash over you.

I could come over there and tell you guys the same shit, as long as you pay my $10K consultancy fee (and give me a 5-star McMuffin breakfast).

Firend of mine was studyiung once and needed to stay awake. Not being a coffee drinker he decided to make a delicious cup of heart-racing coffee to keep himself going. So he boiled the kettle put 4 hepaed teaspoons of coffee in a mug and a bit of Milo for good measure. He hasn't drunk coffee since. For some reason, he doesn't like the taste.

You're right Dan, it's a 7am watching some tool from the UK tell us how we shoud be employing radio directors and extra talent to produce our radio ads. He may as well have told us to hire a thousand men on faithful steeds... we're in PERTH! We're lucky if we don't have to make the sound engineer do the voice over.
