QueerJoe's Ugly Shame

Every once in a while, I find myself saying this to prospective clients or in job interviews...

...I Love Microsoft Office!!
I know, I know...how could I love the non-Applie, bug-ridden software of a company like Microsoft?

But I do.

I can make Excel do things that would make an accountant blush. Create a vlookup and then display it in a fantastic pivot table...insert a nested "if" statement that makes lesser men go cross-eyed...sort, filter and create distinct lists of individual data with blinding speed.

And I can do amazing things with Word, PowerPoint, Project and Visio as well.

I started my PC life with Lotus 1-2-3 and Wordperfect, and I thought I would never love any others...I raged against the ever-popular Word and Excel when they started to become the standard. And now, I have clearly been assimilated.

Yes, I know shame.

Current Knitting
I finally got a burst of knitting done, and I am on the last row of squares on the back of the Zaire pullover.


This means, I have four more squares to finish before doing the shoulders, collar and sleeve. I'm hopeful to have a bit more time over the course of the next few weeks, so I should be able to power-knit through the remainder of this garment.
