Here I Go Again

2006-09-07 - 10:08 a.m.

This shows you just how computer illiterate I am.

I was getting to the point where I almost re-used a song title for an entry. I started looking over the older entries list to make sure I wouldn't. Then, supposedly to make it easier, I cut-and-pasted the list into a text file. I was telling someone at work about this, and they said, "Why don't you just use Excel and alphabetize the list? Then you can add to it and re-order it anytime."

HUH? You can do that??

So this morning I opened Excel, opened the text file in it...and I get a wizard that walks me through the process. It takes each name and puts it in a separate cell, nice and easy. Then, two clicks later...alphabetized.

My ex was the expert in Excel. Something tells me I need to go back to school and learn this stuff.

Maybe I could do that with my text file with all the CDs and LPs and such...


A guy on Price Is Right yesterday reminded me of me, at least in a couple ways.

He got onstage, and Bob commented on his "Honeymooning With Bob" T-shirt. The guy took the mic, and promptly announced that his new bride was suffering morning sickness, and "there were two lines - the test is positive!"

The audience went nuts, happy for the happy couple. Bob, a little nonplussed, said with a chuckle, "Well, now that we got THAT out of the way..."

I too tend to talk too much and too personally, even about other people in my life. It's something I'm working on.

But this is MY blog. MY small portion of the universe. And I'll say whatever I damn well please...unless it'll get me fired. Sorry, but I need to pay my rent.


I plan again to go out to dinner tonight, and then back to the game store and drool.

It's good to get out amongst the 3D folk sometimes. And even though it's still quite warm, I can use the vitamin D.

Even though Jerry Springer said it, it's worth thinking about:

Be good to yourself...and each other.

Be seeing you.
