I really just need it to count my steps, since the $ we receive is solely based on that.  The only thing I'm particular about is not having something too bulky.  The reason I went with the Flex was because it was relatively skinny.  I may look into getting one that clips onto your shorts.

To give you another option I have a Nexus 7, and I love it.  I was told that if you want the best, go for an iPad.  If you want something cheaper that is almost as good, go with the Nexus.

I'd take a stroll down Pennsylvania Avenue and see this cool house that's white. 

In all seriousness I don't have anything new to add from what other people said, but the Newseum was my favorite part of DC by far.

I was at the game last night, and there was NO ONE there.  MLB.com says 16,600, but there's no way that many people showed up.  Having said that, the crowd was definitely pro-Cleveland moreso than pro-Atlanta.

I second the Avalon and definitely check out El Felix and Bocado burger there.  I have lived 2.5 miles from work for 7 years and it's the best thing I've ever done for me.  If you don't like traffic, I highly suggest that too.

If you are looking for walking distance to entertainment, you have to live in Buckhead/Midtown or surrounding areas.  But make no mistake, a drive to work in Alpharetta won't be that fun.  Otherwise, Alpharetta/Roswell/Johns Creek are all great areas to live in.

Royal Caribbean is my favorite affordable cruise line, but Norwegian isn't far behind.  The good thing about Norwegian is the freestyle dining.  You can go to dinner whenever you want.  On Royal Caribbean you have to choose between two dinner times (5:30 & 8:00PM or something like that).  I took a Norwegian cruise to the Eastern Mediterranean just because that worked out better for us.  If you have the chance to visit Dubrovnik, Croatia I highly recommend it.  It is easily one of the most beautiful places on Earth.  

If you drink A LOT, then a drink package is worth it.  Just do the simple math on how many drinks you'd have to consume to make it worth it.  Excursions are also a ripoff because the cruise line has to get their cut, so try to do a little research beforehand to see if you can organize something yourself.  Sometimes the only route to go is through the cruise line, though.
