Hiring Manager Didn't Like Me Laughing, Now What?

Dear Experts, I had an interview yesterday. The first person I met with was great. We really hit it off, laughing and had the same views on everything. But then I was introduced to the person I'd be reporting to. She was completely different. She is also new to the company and I sensed something was wrong. At one point she said, "Wow, sounds like you were having a good time in there. You both were laughing so hard the whole office heard you." Did I do something wrong? I really want this job. The company is great and I think I could do great things for them, but I'm afraid the manager who I'd be reporting to has a problem with me. What can I do to fix this?

Staying active at work can be a real challenge. It's easy to get sidetracked with projects and meetings, and not even realize you've been sitting for a couple (or more!) hours. So, how can busy professionals be more active during the work day?
