Meeting? Uh, What Meeting?! Google Calendar Is Down.

Former West Coast Editor

Back to work, everyone. As of 12:55 p.m. ET, Google Calendar is back in business and so are you.

Stop the clock. Google Calendar is down and out. Go ahead. Cancel all those lame meetings you dreaded anyway. You are now free to roam about the office -- or do actual work.   

Kvetching on Twitter about the outage is apparently another useful way to pass the time. Why not? Lots of other souls lost without Google Calendar to guide them are aimlessly tweeting, grasping to find meaning in the free range void. You can, too.  

If everyone’s go-to free scheduling tool is the only thing that keeps you from “exploding into a flaming pile of disorganization,” sorry, pal, you’re pretty much screwed. But, if you’re old-school (like me), and you jot appointments down in an actual paper planner, tough luck, you’re still on the hook for whatever you scribbled down. Get on it.

Speaking of Google outages, who remembers when Google Docs went kaput last month? We don’t either because we bailed and went to the bar. Uh, just kidding, boss.

Now that time has no meaning and you have ample time to slack off, waste a few precious minutes on these panicky mayday tweets. Note the one about the billion pieces of scrap paper. See? We’re not the only ones.
