Someone with some computer skills need to edit that Miley performance to replace Robin Thicke with a cakesafe.

If I'm decorating in the early morning I listen to the sports breakfast show (TalkSport), late morning Judge Judy, afternoon old re-runs and evening if there's a football (soccer) match on I'll watch that and if not some more re-runs. I listen more than I watch though - it's back round noise unless it's a really good match and then I somehow forget what I'm supposed to be doing as I am drawn to the screen (laptop perched precariously onto stuff).

Rush 24/7. I just pick an old one, and let them play one after another. Every now and then I will look at the screen.

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

I like to work in silence. Noise distracts me, even just a little. I find it especially irritating when people walk in and start asking me questions. Just the other day I was decorating some cookies when family came to visit. Of course, my cousin and her kids all gathered around me asking questions and asking me to decorate cookies for them. One of her sons even ruined one of the cookies. I calmly gathered my equipment and went to work in a diferent room. I was called rude and anti-social.

Im sorry, would you like it if I went into your office and stared at you all day as you did paperwork?

Lol, sorry for the vent, but I've been quietly raging about that ever since it happened. So I guess, silence.

Haha, ditto this. I usually have one song on loop in my head while I'm decorating.

Yes... but "it's just cookies" or "it's just cake" ... "you don't mind, right"... "I mean its not like what your doing takes concentration"...  <<< all of those.... makes my blood boil.

The worst part is: it was THE plaque cookie with several handmade decorations on it that said: "Happy Birthday, ___!"

Her reaction to it, I swear, was: "oh, look, Caro. He ruined your cookie after you worked so hard on it."

Then she demanded I decorate a cookie for him so he would behave. Needless to say, after I finished I locked the cookies up and went to bed without saying goodbye lol.

I work mostly in silence.   But silence for me is a whole lot of other noise from the rest of the place.   I don't think I would hear anything over the running dialogue in my head.

 

Sometimes I get really bored when I'm assembling toppers, and listen to rile me up music.   Misfits, Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly.   But when I'm all cerebral (and truly alone), I listen to Japanese koto music, or even chamber music.   I'm a bit all over the place.  :)

Sometimes when I'm working in the kitchen I'll put on a DVD of Little House on the Prairie, or watch old time TV show on Hulu like Dick Van Dyke, Green  Acres, etc. Other times, I need to access the recipes on my laptop, so that doesn't work, so I play Pandora set to Celtic/folk/classical type stuff or a book on tape.
