Sadly, it's also not about part three of the Three Colors Cornetto Trilogy by Edgar Wright with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, The World's End. (Though I really wish it was about that.)
Today is the last of the crazy ass busy days at work. Not that tomorrow and Friday won't be insane as well, but I'll have a little more freedom. All in all, it's been a great week meeting with this consultant. Long days, but a lot of progress made. He also reminds me of a slightly heavier "Ted Mosby."
It's been all I can stand not to giggle every time this thought crosses my brain.
And because it's been such a crazy couple of weeks, I have no new writing to share with you today. It's also been a week of utter frustration with computers. I upgraded my Office 2000 to Office 2010 on Sunday (through an awesome deal at work) and that's when disaster struck.
I'm currently editing a manuscript for someone, and I'm about half way through it. Well, I was about half way done. Both copies of the file won't work with this version of Word. I've tried other files, and they convert just fine. There's just something about this one file—both copies of said file—that Word just doesn't like. I've tried many things, including reinstalling Office 2000, but now the file won't open there. I tried in on Office 2007 on my work computer, also without luck. I downloaded the original file from my email, and that one works just great. Apparently it's okay to use two versions of Word when editing one document, but when you add a third, Word no likey.
All that to say, I have to start over on my notes. This sucks, for sure, but it's not terrible. I make notes as I go, but I always go through a second time to make sure the notes I made aren't going to be detrimental based on what I previously didn't know was going to happen. If that makes any sense at all.
So, yes, I lost a ton of work, but it's not the end of the world.
This is the end of the world.
So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish.
