I’m building an Excel spreadsheet to keep track of my lace inventory and love poetry dedicated to the program has been popping up in my head. It goes like this:
How your name astounds me
To be based on excellence
Even though you’re a fucking bitch
If you were more user friendly
You would make good money as a whore
Um, that didn’t work so well, did it?
It’s always like this when I first start a spreadsheet. It goes from “I hate your guts” in the beginning. Then, when you’re in the middle of it actually being usable, you think “this is pretty cool.” Afterwards, when you use it to analyze stuff and make graphs, you think “fucker, why won’t you work the same way two times in a row?!”
I better go ahead and build in the data validation coding so I don’t screw something up during the entry part so that the analytics part will work later on. Fun, fun. I used to do this for money… now I do it for free. Damn. Hopefully my lace will be easy to find when I need it.
