Happy Follow Friday @AmyMccTobin . I am surprised indeed that this is your first time #FF. I enjoy reading all your comments here. Incredibly jealous that you live near the beach. If I did, I would brag about it too on all the social networks. Have a great one.

@belllindsay Thank you for this post. I have been echoing a lot of your sentiments above lately (with all the necessary swears of course!) The Ottawa hoax especially hit me hard given that a friend, my age, lost the battle to very fast progressing cancer just last week. As @Howie Goldfarb mentioned what a horrible thing to create a hoax about this.

@jasonkonopinski @ExtremelyAvg What a great post. Jason, I am shocked too. Brian, I am off to check out the book now.

@ginidietrich Jinx. Exactly same episode. So good! Trying to go super slowly now. The second half of the season is only available on Netflix Feb 24. That's a long time away ;)

@biggreenpen ha! So true. I tried desperately to use Ha ho in the above comment but it just didn't do justice to the nature of Ha ho as described in the post, so I too am compelled and I continue the quest. Best of luck to you. When you succeed I'd love to hear it :)

Loved this whole series. Sad to see that it's over but knowing this team of crazies I am sure that you have something equally awesome up your sleeves for next time.
@ginidietrich Agh! Lucky you... BB marathon tonight for me. Watching till I see that spoiler now. Don't think too I am too far away. Are you done the series yet?

Love Grover. Wish the real FB video didn't include the Breaking Bad spoiler. Some of us aren't there yet. Agh!!! 'Idiot Friend' ! A very happy almost birthday @ginidietrich . I look forward to having Feb 10 off in the near future!
@ginidietrich Aquarians must just gravitate towards the crazies!

@KristenDaukas @ginidietrich I have responded too, to see what they say back. It usually is a human which makes me sadder at the whole situation.

I am so glad that Google is making this change. I get these spammy pitches all the time - pet peeve.
As usual, Gini you explained it beautifully. Great post. Thank you.
I had the pleasure of meeting Howie back in September following my #FF (Thank you Gini) . Howie set up a Letterman and a Kimmel taping for me. Too nervous to go on my own he graciously offered to accompany me. It was epic. We sang (think Joseph Gordon-Levitt style NM's Super Bass), we Twerked like there was no tomorrow (fire and all) and we even did our very own hashtag skit. Yep, totally viral. I am super nonplussed that it hasn't made it to Gin and Topics yet... but I am still holding my breath. (@jasonkonopinski, hope this sentence surpasses Bob Le Drew on FB. oh ya!)
Howie, I really enjoy reading all your comments and your thoughts on Three Things. You are very smart indeed (and funny! A lethal combination).
Another baby on the way - super exciting. Wishing you all the best and yay! it's going to be an Aquarian. Aquarians rock!
Congrats on your #FF. Have an awesome weekend.

@belllindsay @ClayMorgan @ginidietrich Best of luck Lindsay! You can do it! Exercise in the day certainly makes me more productive and definitely refreshed.
I love the philosophy of being held to and rewarded based on deliverables and goals accomplished as opposed to hours clocked in. Working from home has been great for me in terms of increased productivity and setting the limits you talk about in this great post. Certainly beats fighting the bad weather and traffic for 2 hours each way to get to the office and then spend another hour in the office complaining and hearing complaints about the weather and commute from colleagues to only then sit down to get started and then stressing about how many billable hours you still need to accomplish before you battle the weather again. I certainly don't miss that.
Hi Anneliz, congrats on the #FF. So nice to 'meet' you. Love your background including all the time you have spent in Boston. I lived in Boston for 10 years and it continues to be one of my favourite cities. Have a great day!

Gini, great post. It is hard to say no and I am working hard on that one. Remembering that "YOU are the expert" is a great point. Sometimes we don't give ourselves enough credit for all the skills we possess. Certainly they are not commonplace.
