YuleTube: The King's Singers

We have a couple King's Singers CDs which we listen to a lot during the holidays. They're an a cappella ensemble who can sing wacky and sing nice, so here's a taste of both.

"Twelve Days of Christmas" with Julie Andrews gamely playing along. Lyrics in German, subtitles in Spanish! Food looks delicious.

"The Gift", a very lovely song, by just the Singers themselves and their wonderful voices.

when Word goes all wacky

MS Word has decided that my cursor will now be a tiny little dot, not much bigger than a period.

It started in one document, and has now spread to other documents. The cursor itself, when moving around with the mouse, is still the classic "I". But when typing, it's a little bitty dot. I have not yet figured out, for the life of me, how to get it back. Google results said it was probably a font size issue and to muck with changing font sizes. No dice.

Anyone have any advice?
