Let me get this out of the way first, gang: guest blogging for Everything Is Terrible, for me, is about the single greatest honor a complete waste of a man such as myself has ever received short of winning a wagon full of Archway cookies on the Bozo show. So let’s get to it. I was surprised at a few things after I made this video. FIRST: according to my mother, Kim Komando is still a force to be reckoned with on the technology scene. I always assumed that her “jazzing up documents” would have lost her some serious points with the Silicon Valley crowd. SECOND: It doesn’t matter what she says, I WILL LISTEN. Change my document margins? She’s right, you know: “It’s almost, like, why bother?” THIRD: I have a crazy, crazy crush on Kim Komando because she’s right: a blue screen is like a big, blank piece of paper I can put inside my typewriter. And if anyone’s going to disillusion me about Ed McMahon’s practice of merging form letters like “ramps onto a freeway,” I’d rather it be the soft, supple voice of Kim Komando instead of Leo Laporte. Wouldn’t you?
