The Best of All Worlds
Now I'm watching Jeopardy! and across the bottom of the screen I saw this notice (among others):
THE LITERARY COUNCIL: CANCELLATION OF APPRECIATION DINNER CANCELLED. I guess that means the dinner is on then? I hope all the attendees are literate enough to understand that.
I got my car back today. It's all pretty and shiny and working again! I'm so happy to have it back. The car repair place gave me an aloe vera plant. Haha. So, I was traumatized by being in a wreck, had to call about 80 thousand people, do without my car and everything in it for a week, and spend $10 more to fill up the tank that I do with my car, but I figure I came out ahead because now I have an aloe vera plant.
Today I spent most of my lunch time trying to figure out how to download and install Open Office so that I could open Microsoft Word documents. After reading lots and lots of information on the internet and fiddling with lots of different applications I got it to work... and then discovered that I could open Word documents all along with Appleworks. Go figure.
Random fact about me: My mom keeps carrots in a tupperware container with water to keep them from drying out. I like to drink the water that the carrots have been soaking in. Lots of vitamin A. Maybe that's why I can see in the dark better than Andrea.
