Wednesday, August 18th, 2004 • 5 Comments on Tomorrow, We Fight Write
After two weeks with my shiny new laptop, I now have the full suite of Microsoft Office products (thank you, Jay!). I am still mourning the loss of my beloved Corel WordPerfect, but at least now I have Word and this beautiful, sleek machine can be used for more than e-mail, blogging and photo management. The irony, of course, is that I decided to go with a Mac in part because I hate Microsoft with a passion similar to my hatred of George W. and Viagra spam. Sadly, Corel WordPerfect is no longer available for Macintosh computers, so I’m stuck with the dreaded Microsoft Word. Sad. Not only that, I have to convert all my WordPerfect files on my PC to Word files and then transfer them to my Mac because Word for Mac won’t convert WordPerfect files. Argh. Still, it’s a minor complaint considering I have the coolest laptop in the world.
Oh, and though I’m not one to name inanimate objects (I have enough pets and fictional characters to name, thankyouverymuch), I named my computer Will. Why? Because I named my scraggly stray cat—who has been gaining weight and growing fur!—Grace. Heh.
Despite my aversion to Microsoft, I’m glad I have word processing software now. I have five deadlines I’m going to attempt to make between now and September 1st. Oof. Time to get to work.
Well… maybe tomorrow, since it’s almost 2 a.m.
