Otherwise known as the “it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and I have nothing exciting to write about” blog post. So! First of all, isn’t this “tree” cool?

Jen asked on my post yesterday if I’d brought a camera on my trip to NYC, and though I have, I’m not toting it around during my meetings. Why? Because they all look like this — cups of coffee or tea or hot chocolate and conversation. There’s not all that much to see. Yes, sure, I do occasionally take meetings with editors in their offices, but think about where you spend most of your day, or what your work space looks lie — would you really want someone coming in and taking a picture of it to post on the internets?
