Kero asleep

The light! It buuurrnnsss usssss--!

Erf ... it can't really be morning already, can it?

And I gotta be at work by 7:00 all next week to do the courier runs? Gah.

I remember as a historical fact that I went to work at 5:00 a.m. at Starbucks on a regular basis, but I can't comprehend what that must have been like. My memory must have blocked it.

Okay ... so.

Word thinks that right hand pages are even, unlike the rest of the world. Okay, fine. So if I want a section to start on the right hand page, it needs to have a "New Section: Even Page."

*inserts that*

Okay. That worked on this section.

*inserts it again for the next part*

Why doesn't it work on this section?

*looks ... everything's identical, and should work, but doesn't*

Okay, I'll insert a hard page break. It's an awful kludge, but I'm on a deadline, here!

*inserts a hard page break, and the section STILL starts on the wrong page*

Um. Fine, I'll come back to that. Meanwhile, I need to change the page numbering so that this section starts with Page 1.

*finds the page number setting in Insert > Page Number and sets it to "1"*

Why does it say this section starts on Page 3?

*goes into Insert > Page Number ... it's still set to "1"*

It still says this is Page 3. Maybe it's because of that hard page break, which doesn't fix the problem anyway.

*takes that out ... page number still says "3"*

You know, I think I've lost my ability to get irritated about this ... I've reached a strangely peaceful calm ... the resigned fatalism of a death-row inmate or a bug caught in a spider's web...

*hangs a sign over his cubicle that reads, "Abandon All Hope, Ye Who Use M$ Weird"*

I think I'll just go mad now, and get it over with.

Alas, Poor Wesley

Snagged from spikedpunch...

Wil Wheaton cut from new Star Trek movie.

I feel bad for Wil Wheaton, actually ... it's not his fault the writers made Wesley so annoying at the beginning. The last few episodes he was in, he was actually pretty cool, but by then it was too late. And lets face it, Star Trek fans can be real assholes sometimes. :-`

Little known furry trivia: Wil Wheaton plays one of the mice in The Secret of NIMH. I'll leave it to interested parties to figure out which one. :)

Oh well. I'm not exactly a big Wesley fan, but I do think that Wil's had a bum deal. Fortunately, he's got a successful living as a writer and he seems to be pretty happy overall. Good for him!
