My MS word went bye-bye with the old hard-drive, so I can't open any of my word documents till I download Open Office, which sucks, therefore I have to get my hands on a new Word as soon as I figure out a way that doesn't involve paying for it, since even if I HAD $100 to throw away, which I don't, for the second time, I wouldn't want to spend it on office. I don't even neeed the whole thing, just word. It's so aggravating. Plus for some reason my Quicken won't open the backup data because it says it needs an updated version. How can it need an updated version for a file it created? Sooo tiiired.

I put a Word disk on your desk.

If the Word disk is a windows copy, don't install it. Accidentally installing microsoft programs onto my poor little mac is why I had to reformat it back in February. I am sorry that I am out of installation keys for my copy of word. There is antoher version of "open office" that's supposed to be really good-- a lot of my friends use it. I believe they have an open source version of access on it too. I have just been too lazy to look..

It's all right, you were nice to let me have one in the first place. I hear that open office for windows is really good, but when I got the one for apple I thought it sucked. It ran on OS9? I think? and it took forever to start, which was the main thing, but a bunch of other things bothered me too. I think if I had something in italics it wouldn't show up italiized on the screen. Bah. Oh well. beggars can't be choosers.

putting things on your computer for os9 would not be good for it...that could have been the problem.btw

Ok. So it's what nearly midnight and I'm still at school. I love Finals Week. Remember how I was asking you earlier this week what section of the world I should focus on for my paper on post-conflict reconstruction? And how I couldn't make up my mind? Kosovo? Bosnia? Rwanda? Sudan? Sierra Leone? Cambodia? Those were the top candidates anyways.....So I spent an hour in a coffee shop and found inspiration.COLUMBIA!!!!!!! Home of Shakira! And now with the aftertaste of Pumpkin Spice Latte still lingering in my mouth, I write....
