PostHeaderIcon Excel-lent!

As part of blogging for OffAssist, I’ve had to learn lots of numbers-related stuff I would never pay attention to otherwise.

Which has actually proven handy with the tax stuff going all crazy the last couple years (phone rebates, stimulus checks). For once I actually know what’s going on and get to explain it to my husband 🙂

As part of learning more about things bookkeeping, I signed up for the accountingweb newsletters. Earlier this week I got a link to this article in my inbox. Basically, people are using Excel, in some cases in what must be some incredibly complicated in-going formulas, to create charts representing song titles or lyrics.

Now, I don’t do a lot of charting myself, but I do a fair amount of desktop publishing graphics, so I had to go check out the Flickr group, here. Be warned, they also have comments attached, and sometimes the language is a little, well… Don’t let your kids see it without checking it out for yourself first. How work-safe it is depends on how tolerant your boss is, no adult images, just adult language upon occasion.

Have a giggle – some of them are brilliant, others merely okay and many I didn’t get at all.

This one is my personal favorite, probably because it was the first one I got. Of course, you have to be a They Might Be Giants fan, or you’ll probably be unfamiliar with the song…
