@belllindsay @Howie Goldfarb Next you two will be telling us you ate TV dinners. Speaking of Cheese Whiz, Canadians eat Kraft Dinner while Americans eat Kraft Macaroni and Cheese?

@belllindsay Yes and no. ;) Glad you bounced back from whatever was going on during #10 and #7 is all too familiar. Thought you were blue and pi**ed! Good thing Thanksgiving happened when it did, otherwise you could have come by and lit the Menorah with us. Yes, there are a few of us from the Maritimes who celebrate Hanukkah. ;) WRT intimacy, in some ways we may feel closer because of social media but sometimes aren't you surprised by how much your *friends* know because of what you've shared? When you piece it altogether it's often a lot more revealing than you'd expect.
@bobledrew You can load our dishwasher anytime you're in Toronto. ;)
Now not sure if I do or don't know what sparked this post but there are a lot of mean jerks on the internet just like anywhere else. I've experienced the joys of dealing with trolls - fun times - NOT! Sorry you were feeling so blue on Black Friday. It's hard to believe some of the crazy duping going on online right now. Lots of people are complaining about the negativity they've seen lately.
We should start a "No More Hiding Behind Your Avatar" grassroots campaign. ;)
I was thinking of writing one of these 10 things or whatever myself (I haven't been tagged yet) but I think I'd have to copy at least half of yours. Crazy, eh?

Congrats @jasonkonopinski! I'm looking forward to reading your blog posts about your new adventures in AD-land. If you're looking for a guest blog post about toques, I have one in mind and yes, it will fit with @spinsucks. Not kidding.

@RebeccaTodd I'll have to check out Howard Gardner, I don't know his work. I'll also take the VARK test and share the results here.

@RebeccaTodd addressing different learning styles something parents hear about from their children's teachers and as a continuing ed instructor, I'm reminded by the university when we're developing curriculum. Thanks it's always good to have another reminder. Can't wait to take the VARK assessment. I suspect I know where I fit but curious to confirm. I'm not leaving emoticons on your timeline anymore either. Ha!
@martinwaxman I enjoyed your post it reminded me of bloggers who decided to remove the publication date from their blog posts and in effect made a statement that all their content is evergreen and worthy of retweeting. Annual event content written most often by lifestyle bloggers tends to be recycled a lot too. For example, have a look at Thanksgiving posts circulating over the next week or so.

@Digital_DRK Let me know if when you decide to go to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and I can suggest where to stay and dine while you're there.
@belllindsay @Digital_DRK Neither of you need/will need "The Fifty Facelift". It's better to age with grace and maintain your character. ;)
@Digital_DRK Ha! Glad you made the most of your day. I saw the Serious Moonlight Tour and since reading about your day and watching the movie Frances Ha on the train yesterday, I can't get his songs out of my head. ;) Guess I should get some tickets before Nov. 27. On summer family road trip, we went to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. If you haven't been, you should go - it's only a four hour drive from Toronto with lots of photo ops.
@Digital_DRK Happy Birthday, Darryl! You don't look a day over 29. ;) Welcome to the #FF club. It's been a please meeting you IRL. Looking forward to hearing how you liked the Bowie exhibit. Enjoy!

Great post, @dave_link. I'm still amazed by the companies that don't think they need a social media policy. Your suggestions about including screenshots of real tweets and Facebook posts (or mock-ups) to exemplify whether or not they demonstrate acceptable or unacceptable behaviour is brilliant. It would also be helpful to do the same for blog comments (and other relevant channels).

@ginidietrich What, you don't like Achy Breaky Heart? ;) Let's see what happens her next album. She's no Madonna or Lady Gaga yet she's been compared to both because of her courage to push the envelope... far.

@ginidietrich @AmyMccTobin She sure is.
Congrats @ClayMorgan! Double welcome to @armentdietrich and the @spinsucks #FF cast of characters. Your nieces sound amazing and are lucky to have you and your wife in their lives. Looking forward to seeing where you'll be taking @ginidietrich in the next phase of your joint career journey.
