UGGG  I totally missed this due to hunting down website images for a client. Darn you for sending me the tiny images so I have to redownload the big images.


Oh well at least I have the recording. Thanks for sending that to me. I know what I will be doing this weekend.

@LauraPetrolino Sometimes I think the pressure of a close deadline makes you focus on what you really want to say and not the 1500 ideas you have floating around.

Hmm... I tend to be a bit of both. Sometimes I get things done early because I know I am going to be busy and other times I am up at 2am finishing a project. 


I think mine is from years of working in the print industry - there are times you are ahead of schedule or at least on time and everything is going well and other times where all hell is breaking lose and every few minutes you are reprioritizing what you are working on. 


Ahh the craziness that is my brain.....

@Eleanor Pierce We have noticed that a lot of breweries are also staring to make soda. So soon we can be a complete snob about which craft soda is the best. #sodasnobinthemaking  

Forget the fight about Pepsi and Cola this will reach a whole new epic level.

@Eleanor Pierce Plus have you seen some of the craft beer ABV's? Some of them are crazy high. 


I have seen some as high as 15-20% ABV. Such as Dogfish, 120 min IPA. (link: http://www.dogfish.com/brews-spirits/the-brews/occassional-rarities/120-minute-ipa.htm)

Sounds like an interesting way to cook a turkey. I cook a huge turkey every year though so I don't know if I would be able to get it to fit in my stove like that. :)

@Joshua Wilner/A Writer Writes I think we are a better prepared generation. Not only did we grow up learning how to do it by hand but we were also able to grow with technology and use it.

Every gernations wants to work smarter than the one before, that is in part what drives technology. 


I am on the younger end of Gen X and I HATE voice mail. I will let it build for days before I finally check it. But I am also not a fan of text speak. The funny part is, is neither of my children use text speak either.


My mom who is part of the Baby Boomer Generation jumped on board with texting. She is hearing imparied (hearing aids and cochlear implant) so talking on the phone can be a challenge. She loves to text. 


Love this from @Mary Rose Maguire " it's not necessarily a cut-and-dried scenario within the various generations. The best solution for me is to just ask. :-)"

Came to the party late - but I read someone say once that when writing if you get writers block that it is not really writers block but that the story went wrong somewhere a few chapters back and somehow you know this and just need to go back and fix it. 


What are your thoughts on that?

I am horrible at updating my twitter account - I do the work one all day but then forget about mine. I am trying to be better. I have recently downloaded a new twitter app for my mobile so that I can separate my work and personal account. (the app I have now it's hard to tell which one I am in) I am hoping that will help things.

The advantage of working for a small agency in a niche market is that we really get to know our clients and they suggest us to others - which helps us all grow. Also I am constantly doing something different and learning new skills along the way. 


Ahhh but a big firm with an over seas office would be fun to try out :)
