Tools Of The Trade: Lo-Carb Monsters
I admit it: I'm a caffeine junky. When a big job needs to get out the door, my nervous system is twanging like an out-of-tune harp on a trampoline in the back of an old truck going down a bumpy dirt road.
So, to fuel my chemically-induced creativity, I've tried dozens of combos of energy drinks, coffees, and sodas. What seems to work best for me is the Lo-Carb Monster, usually in the 16 oz. can. A lot of buzz, no sugar crash, and I'm productive for a good 5 or 6 hours before needing another.
If they had a version of the can that was shaped like a large hypodermic needle, I'd have track marks up and down my neck. Yeah, it's that necessary to my work.
Keep on jittering!
