Windows is for Lovers

K adjusted his tie and looked at his blackberry.

"Ugh! The day's shot," he said.

"Why? What do you have?" I asked.
"A board meeting from 9:00 - 12:30 and excel training from 1:00 - 5:00."
"Excel training? What are they going to teach you that you don't already know?"

"I'm going to become... IT'S MASTAH!" he said, assuming the crane pose.




[This pose was followed up with a lot of "HOY-YA!" noises and karate kicks.]

[He's lucky I had a crush on Ralph Macchio in 8th grade.]

When he got home from work, I asked how the training went.
"It was great!" he said. "Later I'll show you what I learned about pivot tables."

[Be still my beating heart.]

Pivot tables, how romantic.

This conversation could absolutely have happened at my house. Have fun with the pivot tables!

Wow, I wish I could try pivot tables with my wife. They say you just haven't lived till then ;-)

This could have happened in the reverse, as I am the one always talking about pivot tables. My poor husband wouldn't know a pivot table if I showed it to him. Which I have. More than once and with unmatched enthusiasm.

You are a charming pair of geeks.

I've never understood pivot tables.

Corey said...

My husband's PowerPoint slides could beat up your husband's pivot tables.

Ok, I was just kidding. I like your blog.

I'm getting all excited just thinking about what he can now do with his pivot tables.

Ah K sure knows how to keep the love alive ;-) Try to show some interest btw I can't do the pivot table either. Vic keeps threatening to teach me but is not impressed by my total lack of iinterest! Love, GSeattle

Excel training...kill me now.

I am jealous of his pivot table expertise though. I am like the lowest level belt there is when it comes to Excel. Ugh.

The kids and I recently watched ALL FOUR of the Karate Kid movies. In a row. It was AWESOME!! I now have a crush on Pat Morita.

Katie said...

LOL, that's funny!

But, ugghh pivot tables. I was recently thrown into them and I'm not enjoying it because I have NOT had any training.

Everything I've learned about Excel I've learned by playing around with it. So, I currently hate them. I have no time to really learn them, and no training on them... it is taking too much time that I don't have to figure them out.

I LOVE Pivot Tables. They're like magic.
