Conference Woes

I agreed to be on the committee organizing the annual conference held by my department. It's being headed up by a professor who shot down every one of my ideas when we were in the planning stages, so I came to assume that I wouldn't have much of a role in things. Now I've been assigned tasks: things like driving speakers around town. And, also, I realized: I have to waste an entire weekend going to the damn conference. I'm not all that interested in seeing the talks because all the ideas of things that I found interesting? Remember, those were shot down.
