Based on my laugh-o-meter, I vote Audi's crazy dog mix and Dorito's time machine. Based on my heartmelt-o-meter, Puppy Love.
Howie.....I can never eat my Chobani without thinking of him (which I eat religiously, Howie must have placed a spell on us when he wrote his Chobani lovefest/PSA/PDA blog, which wouldn't be surprising given his ability with words. Ever read Lexicon by Max Barry? I'm pretty sure Howie was his inspiration). But I probably eat it also in hopes of becoming as funny as Howie, and that one day we will share a spoon together when he shows me around his Alien kingdom.
@Howie Goldfarb I know we don't talk THAT much but I throughly enjoy your presence. Cheers!

@martinwaxman I mean, this is one crazy bunch. I'd be remiss if I didn't include some advice. ;-)
I hope you do! Let me know how you like them!

These aren't childhood games, but I absolutely adore them: Ticket to Ride & Star Fluxx. Both are strategic games where you have to keep an eye your opponents but your own strategy is guranteed to change during the game. Keeps you sharp and you have to find your balance between focusing on yourself and not too much on your competitiors, but enough to give you an edge. ;-)
Word of advice: Do not enjoy a hard beverage with Star Fluxx. It gets REALLY tricky. I've been in a game that took a hour and half!
@lauraclick *Follows suit, stands up and applauds next to you*
This really spoke to me @ginidietrich.
Though as someone who hasn't experienced the coroporate world/a high demand for hours, I already have seen the benefits of exercising, unplugging on the weekends, etc - so I'm already attached to having a good time management schedule.
But yes, there is a problem with society, because seeing how hard some of you work with great success, I wonder how do you determine what's too much work and what's not enough work? Sometimes I feel I should be putting in MORE hours on the computer but it's rough to do.
Nonetheless thanks for setting such a great example for leaders!

How did I miss this? I wanted mulitple things, but one of the big ones was to be a fashion designer! Then I contemplated marine biology. Fun stuff trying to figure out your path ;)

@ginidietrich Can't wait to read that! What I also find interesting how leaders/organizations do or don't realize they're accountable - that's where we need more advocates. I wonder how often leaders think or educate themselves on accessibility.

@lizreusswig For sure! But how do we know when to not use them if we don't know the person's preferences yet? I think we just go with our guts, common sense depending on the situation and experiment!

@lizreusswigI adore them. I love using rage comics too (though that seems to be dying, but not with me!) Facial expressions are my pitch and tone, and emoticions help deliver it so more of the personality comes through writing! Great points brought up by you and @RebeccaTodd - fun debate!
You know I'm all for a healthy diet, but can you wait until after the holidays to tell us sugar is bad? Okay? Thanks.
Enjoy the spotlight today @JRHalloran :)

@CedarBrown Awesome comment. Awesome points - my favorite is if somebody asks for help through a megaphone, the less likely the request for help will get attention. Truth! It just slides off you, because there's nothing sincere. Sounds like you may need to turn your ramble into a post for us someday ;)

@jeanniecw @Peter John OConnor Jeannie, should we plan a trip to Ireland for 2014?? Everything sounds out of the world. Do you have a website for your B&B?
I keep hearing the Irish are so welcoming, I can't wait to get a taste of it!
Peter, I won't be in Ireland the 4th - I will be in Galway and Dublin from the 23rd to 29th. Bollocks! But really, so glad and honored you would want me to visit. Never say never....
@rdopping It would be a honor to geek out on this with you. It's definitely an idea I want to keep digging into. Thanks for wanting to share! Does it include the case study you mentioned? My email is firstname.lastname@example.org ;)
@Peter John OConnor I don't know how I missed this! How far is this from Lucan/Dublin? I kid you not, but I will be there in two weeks ;-)
Your comment made my day - thank you!
I'm not chicken like @ginidietrich. I will take you on the golf course @Matt_Cerms! Bet I can hit the ball farther ;)
