There's no way on earth or in heaven that Anthony "Tony" Carver isn't an absolute Excel wizard of the highest order.

Tony absolutely does not use Excel.

He uses a home made spreadsheet program because Excel is entirely too flashy and plainly not focusing on doing the work

csv files in Notepad, baby

also I am increasingly convinced that "Double Annie" is one of the most ingenious storytelling ideas of our lifetime

He definitely switches to R1C1 notation notation ASAP.

I hope we have two Annies forever.

Is he smacking Windows+L to lock his computer? Because that is exactly what I think I'm seeing, and it's weirdly pleasant to see that happen in fiction. I'm not the only person that always does that! I'm just like that inhuman monster I hate!
 
"Is there a lot of weather recently" is 100% something I could see myself panicking and saying in an awkward conversation.

We're required to lock our computers at work and it's made me do it on my personal one too! But I have to say I spent WAY too long doing Ctrl-Alt-Del then clicking "lock this computer" before learning I could just to Win+L. Oops.

Huh, I have also just been going the CTRLALTDEL route to lock my work PC, but this one weird trick will save me like half a second!

Thanks Talking Time!

Ah, I see one of your many inexplicable, identical daughters has interrupted you while posting. Proceed.

It's KINDA WEIRD that eternally disaffected and distant dad has NEVER GET TWINS CONFUSED senses, considering that he
A. Neglected his daughter for most of her life, and
B. Doesn't actually have twins at all. He's got time paradoxes.

Makes total sense to me; telling time-paradox duplicates apart is a logical challenge, not an emotional one, and that's right in Tonys wheelhouse.

The way Wisteria feels about romance subplots is the way I feel about Annie's attempts to reconcile with her dad. He's a piece of shit, Annie. Do something better with your time!

He's extremely perceptive of and sensitive to small differences. His awful parenting skills do not arise from indifference.

Just made myself mad realizing that if John was the only character in the popularity poll with 0 votes, it means Anthony had at least 1, which is TOO MANY.
