    No big deal, but was wondering:

    I have the newest version. of WORD and EXCEL which I bought with the iMac a
    few months ago.
    Both work fine.


    I have an Alias icon in the Dock for both.

    When I click on either, it almost seems like you can go out for a cup of coffee before either
    actually open up. Icon just bounces up and down, seemingly forever.

    Is this "normal" ?
    Any way of speeding up their openings ?

    Not really. The Microsoft apps are large and complex, carrying a lot of legacy features. They are what they are.
