Oh, so sorry to hear that. 'Tis the season for that sort of thing on my campus, too.
I took up crocheting so that I would be in some way productive during endless meetings. I won't quit until everyone on campus has a scarf!
I began knitting and it does help--gives all that frustrated energy somewhere to go. Sigh. I'm sorry you've had to suffer through bad meetings!
