Mind-numbing day of meetings

Today was long and mind-numbing, thanks to a series of meetings, mostly all related to the same project, which is taking up a lot of my time, energy, and attention at work. One fixture of one of the meetings was one co-worker who I have rarely had to deal with directly, who spends two-thirds of the time repeating "Mmhmm, mmhmm, mmhmm," or "Right, right, right," or "Yeah, yeah, yeah." It's probably an unintentional, even subconscious, tic, but the message I'm getting from it is, "I have something to say, and I'm just barely polite enough not to have interrupted you yet."
