The track changes comment functionality in MS Word is awesome.

Would be more awesome if the comments carried through when the doc was saved to google docs....

In other news... Am getting a writing desk for Christmas :D !!!!

See, when we moved, the desk I was using (a lovely corner desk with plenty of places for writing-related stuff was left behind because it belonged to the boy's ex. 

Thus, I have been relegated to:

1) Writing on the couch.  Which is fine and dandy save for the fact that my laptop gets hot, my legs cramp up, and my back and neck start bothering me. Plus, there's the TV, which is never not on in my house.

2) Leaving such things as my dictionary and thesaurus and all other writing-related books in our regular bookshelf.  These are rather large books and they take up space that we cannot afford as we have but one bookshelf and a million and one books (anyone want a college marketing textbook?  I have yet to find someone who is just dying to take it off my hands and I want to make sure it goes to a good home :P)

3) Leaving other writing-related things, including index cards, red pens (must edit in red... ingrained in my soul), etc. in boxes where they are not easily accessible since we have no place to put them

4) Leaving printer unplugged and buried in a closet, as we have no place to put it

5) Trying to revise an old manuscript sitting on couch and floor.  I have three cats.  'Nuff said.

I'm sure there are other issues.  Writing desk shall resolve them. YAY!

Now I just need to find one that I like and which isn't a thousand dollars.
