Wow -- I couldn't have done that list! And what's wrong with your eyes the way they are? Why "do" them? As far as the Excel sheet is concerned, my husband is right with you. And don't fear. You'll get your body back. I had two with NOTHING. You can do anything if you want to hard enough. Cheers!

I'd like to get Laser eye surgery to correct my near-sighted ness.

Wow...I have, like, 100 things to say now.

But I'll pick one (cuz I'm at work!)...

I, too, heart Microsoft Excel. I was the first gen. to grow up with a computer in the house (and one of the few IN my gen), so I've watched comps go from DOS to THIS and I'm amazed every day...but no program has ever amazed me like excel does - or made me feel like a genius because I made a kick-ass workbook. :) Rock on, Excel!

So many more comments to make...

An analyst huh? Me too... I really like the style of your blog. I am writing to shamelessly ask for you to check out my blog and see if it is good enough to be added to your blogroll. I am trying to build up some readership so that comments/conversations are more interesting.
