Dogfooding is a term used to describe when one uses their own product.

Not too long ago, I began working for the Office of Letters and Light: a Non-Profit company in the East Bay that coordinates yearly writing events. The majority of my work so far has been editing and writing CSS, HTML Templates, and Drupal modules for the ScriptFrenzy website. The ScriptFrenzy event challenges writers to create a script in 30 days.

According to the website the ScriptFrenzy challenge is to "Write 100 pages of original scripted material in the 30 days of April. (Screenplays, stage plays, TV shows, short films, and graphic novels are all welcome.)"

"So What?" you might ask. Am I being a shill for the company? Yes and No.

If you want to take up the challenge, please do, the ScriptFrenzy website has a ton of resources for both new and seasoned script writers. As for me, well... I'll be eating my own dogfood and taking part. Since I believe in the company enough to work there, I should take part and finally write that script that I've been thinking about for the last few years (or I'll write the other script I was thinking about).

What I mostly want is to publicize that I will be taking part, and hopefully generate support for me and my poorly utilized writing ability. Oh wait, I have a poor writing ability and I sometimes lack focus and concentration. In theory, the deadline imposed by the challenge will help me focus. Yea, in theory.

Finally, there is no way I can be a "proper" writer without sipping a scotch on the rocks and exuding an air of sophistication. Luckily, my refridgerator is being replaced before April 1st, so I will actually be able to make some ice for my scotch. Even better than the ice, is the bottle of single malt scotch that my buddy gave me for helping him with so many of his photography projects. Thanks Buddy!

Since my current "freezer" doesn't actually freeze water, I decided to use an image from flickr user Generation X-Ray.

Now quit reading, and start writing... or help a buddy with a photography project.

Never ever put anything in your whisky :) It's a crime.

That age old dispute never ceases to put a smile on my face.

Are you buying? When it is my whisky, I'll do as I wish, when it is your whisky, I'll drink it as you serve it!

water of life and water (frozen water)
As the ice melts, the beverage gets diluted to the point where the flavor of the scotch becomes truly pronounced. For me, it is the difference between *enjoying* a scotch and drinking a scotch.

Please do not post HTML code or bbcode unless you want it to show up as code in your post. (or if you are a blog spammer, in which case, you probably aren't reading this anyway).
Prove you are human by solving a math problem! I'm sorry, but due to an increase of blog spam, I've had to implement a CAPTCHA.
