Bored Taking Notes? Turn Word into a Colorful Disco Dance Party

I don't know why I made this. I have a feeling I will regret unleashing this creation on the world. A created a Word document in which all the letter, number, punctuation, space and enter keys are all bound to a macro that changes the background color, font color, and font size as you type. The result looks like this:

A Terrible Thing
You can download the word document with the embedded macros here (requires Word for Windows. If you have Word on Mac you can use this version. Changing background colors is not supported in Word for Mac).

I typed up instructions into the document for you. It looks like this:
1) You must download this file and enable macros for this document to work
2) If nothing happens when you start typing, press Alt+F8 and run the "Add Binding" macro
3)  To end the typing party, press alt+F8 and run the "RemoveAllBindings" macro
4) To view or modify the functionality of this macro press alt+F11
