List the Excel TABS

What is the first thing that comes to mind when I say TAB? Of course your fancy tablet right? Gone are the days when apple and blackberry used to be fruits and tablet used to be just a pill :p

My day went like this. I got up from my bed early in the morning @ 9:45 AM IST :) and started reading newspaper ("Eenadu" - Telugu reasonal newspaper). @10:45 I am done with newspaper and moved on to complete morning activities (Sorry can't disclose all) and then early breakfast @ 11:15 AM IST which is as usual on weekends and bla bla bla bla blaaaa...
