Feeling all ADHD.

For some reason I've been bouncing around all morning, and not in a good way. I mean flitting from project to project, tweaking this here, twiddling with that there. Sometimes days like this can be useful – if you get enough steam built up, you can finish multiple projects in a single day. However, so far this isn't shaping up to be one of those kinds of days.

I think I'm going to go offline, grab a Flash book (for some reason I've been doing a lot of work in Flash this year) and try to focus. This may or may not involve my installing my butt into an armchair at the Bethesda Caribou Coffee, which has a much better work vibe than Starbucks, for some reason, and isn't nearly as distracting as Xando/Cosi or Barnes and Noble. Common Grounds in Arlington is still an amazing place to go and hang out, and is hands down the best place to meet with a client, but is too far away for a simple afternoon's work session. Tryst in Adams Morgan is another amazing spot, but when the weather sucks it's a pain in the ass to get to. Parking's awful and it's a hike from the Metro. This is one of those times I wish I had one of these. Or these or these, for that matter.

Yes, I have become a connoisseur of places to work other than the home studio/office. And of daydreams, of course.

Right. Back to the Flash book.


Hey, man, if you decide on that V-Rod, give me a call...

Personally I like the 2003 Low Rider. the Mini is just wussy

What?! You don't want a SAAB?! I could cry.

Wussy my ass. Minis are supposed to be insanely fun to drive. Haven't you ever seen The Italian Job?

As for Saabs... Enh. I dunno. They've never really done it for me. :)

Yeah, minis are cute, but you'll crash and burn in a snowstorm (or so says Click and Clack)... In a sporty, reliable SAAB you'll never be stranded and can whomp any snowstorms ass.

I can't help it: I come from a 4 SAAB household.
