The Hawley Company's Inner Demons

Eleven 81 pedals at Carolina Fatz. Aggressive by nature, Eleven 81 pedals congregate in herds, muscling out other lesser pedals for prime retail grazing land....
Brain storming is a dangerous undertaking, fraught with peril... sweet, succulent peril. Around these parts, brain storming is even more dangerous because of the sweltering temperatures, the feral and somewhat carnivorous purchasing department and a never-ending accounting department candy bowl whose sugar laden treats leave the mind disoriented and exhausted. So it was with trepidation that we gathered in Action Station Tango-Alpha (Derrick and Josh's office for the uninitiated) to come up with Hawley/Interbike advertisements, as the last brainstorming session left me in the ICU for 4 weeks. "The horror... the horror" (heck yeah, I'll rip off big Joe Conrad)

Actual quotes heard in the brain-drizzle session and transcribed for your pleasure:

"If I wrote a blog. I dunno, it'd say: Today I woke up. Then I made a peanut butter and jelly sandwich"

"Dave Carson is the only Hawley employee who could be pictured in pine cone form"


"Let's just have half the page totally blank!"

"That exerciser ball gave me an idea. It's kinda weird"

"Well OK, so that means we're right back where we started"

"Hi there! I'm Dave Carson! I run the purchasing department at Hawley! In addition to that, I'm a pine cone... and yes ladies, I'm spoken for"

Oddly enough, that is exactly what I did with at least half of my working mornings over the last couple of weeks.
