Starving Artists

Amy Grant has been said to pack away the Lays potato chips during her recording sessions. The grease lines her throat and gives her, well... a greasy, throaty sound, I guess.

James Bond likes his martinis shaken, not stirred.

Back in the days when I made scrapbooks into the wee hours, all the women at the crops brought their favorite snacks to keep them chugging around the clock. Carrot sticks, Diet Coke with ice chips (not cubes, it must be ice chips), peanut M&M's, and Arby's roast beef sandwiches.

So, when you're in the creative groove, what is your favorite munchie to keep at hand?

It depends. I have snack food trends. But there are some rules.

With sweets, I only drink something bitter.
With salty food, I only drink something sweet.
I like my chocolate bars kept in the frig.

Currently I can't get enough Kettle crinkle cut salt & pepper chips, popcorn with cheddar cheese flavor, or Snickers ice cream bars.

I seem to always bring carrot sticks to group creative events, like crops and studio nights.

Peanut M&M's are a favorite for when I'm at home creating on my own. I'm willing to get chocolate smudges on my own work, but not on anyone else's. So they get carrot sticks! ;)

If I could get a Starbucks Mocha large enough (and figure out how to keep it hot enough) I'd probably be bringing that along with me too.
