It is 7:42 AM on Monday in Redmond, and I am sitting in conference room 18/3002 by myself, wondering why everyone else is 12 minutes late for this meeting.

UPDATE: I just checked my inbox to find a CANCELLED notification, sent on Saturday night at 9:00 PM. Unfortunately, I was not checking my e-mail between Saturday at 9pm and Monday at 7:30 am so here I sit, listening to our conference call hold music, and remembering, with some rancor, when I called in for this same meeting last week, but they were talking their heads off and didn't notice when I joined the call, and abruptly hung up on me.

What would an Expert Cougar do, I ask myself.
