Office 2007 is simply stunning

This week I experienced for the first time the true value of Office 2007. It is simply brilliant at making what would have been a normal document into a document that is of a professional publishing standard.

In the past I always worried that the documents that I produced were a direct reflection on the professionalism of my company, and I was right – its only too easy to see how professional a company is by looking at its letterhead, invoice and other documents, and even more so when you get a letter that looks awful and has spelling and gramatical errors. Word 2007 particularly has enabled me to create very professional, clean documents that look great.

I am absolutely and completely recommending that everyone should try Office 2007, and the absurd notion that there is nothing new can only ever be said by people who simply havent used it!

An Ode to EasyJet

easyjetI’m sitting waiting on an EasyJet flight,
It’s a horrible shade of orange and it doesn’t look right,
We’re waiting 35 minutes & its getting late,
There’s nothing to do but sit, shiver and wait.

The pilot is unhelpful, trying to sound upbeat,
“We might get an earlier window” – I wish he’d turn up the heat,
The food all has to be paid for – and don’t they tell it straight,
There’s nothing to do but sit, shiver and wait.

What use is a plane with its wheels on the ground?
The incessant humming – what’s causing that sound?
We are all sitting here thinking “this isn’t great”,
There’s nothing to do but sit, shiver and wait.

Some have large newspapers, some play cards on the plane,
The pilot informs us the delays ‘caus of rain,
Just give us something to do, something to create,
There’s nothing to do but sit, shiver and wait.

Some look out of the window at the grass and distant leaves,
Some tell aircraft horror stories that everyone believes,
An Australian helpfully tells me “It’ll be alright mate”, but,
There’s nothing to do but sit, shiver and wait.

Its finally here, time to depart, get into the sky,
After 45 long minutes, a 30-minute trip we will fly,
Its EasyJets lack of customer service that we hate

BECAUSE…

There’s nothing to do but SIT, SHIVER and WAIT!
