I admit I used to have rather mixed feelings about Klout, especially after some issues with it losing my account info and having to start over. (But let's not go there, shall we? Water under the bridge!) I've come to see the value of Klout in my own special way - it's a motivator for me, almost like that calorie burn counter on the elliptical at the gym. It's my own social media cheerleader of sorts, I like the bump I get from writing a blog post, commenting on a blog, etc. In fact I've worked my Klout score into my performance metrics at work - simply because Klout helps motivate me to do more of the stuff I "should do" (and want to do) and not because it's a sign of my digital eminence. Here's hoping you get to that ever-elusive 70 before you actually TURN 70. ;)

I find I work more/longer hours when I work from home - likely because of the guilt I feel for not coming into the office, but also because instead of spending 2 hours commuting to and from the office, I can use that time to work instead.

@Christina R Here's my guess - they have very limited hours. They close at 6PM on weekends - crazy! Plus this is one store you want to avoid at peak hours, it can get maddening when all the samples come out, people just kind of hang out at the end of the aisles and they're really annoying to get around. But if you're CostCo, you want people to be hanging out sampling your product so I can't really blame 'em.

Exclusive, you missed exclusive! While it may sound silly, one of the main reasons I shop at CostCo is because they carry brands/items not available anywhere else. I crave the Morningstar Spicy Black Bean Burgers that can only be found at CostCo - as well as the Disney brand animal crackers...
