Recent Irks and Delights
Irk: Grading, grading, grading.
Delight: Being finished with grading.
Irk: Browswer suddenly quitting after I had just typed a long blog entry without having saved it. (I know, I know. There are many ways around this.)
Irk: Trying to remember HTML tags when I haven't published a web page using anything but Dreamweaver's WYSIWYG interface in years.
Delight: Four guilt-free days of post-semester decompression spent doing little or nothing productive.
Delight: Sleeping more than four hours a night. (Although I admit that my body has become so accustomed to the short shift that I actually feel better with less sleep than more.)
Delight: Discovering that Netscape for Mac supports WYSIWYG blogging, so I don't have to remember those HTML tags for formatting, linking and inserting pictures. This means I'll be more likely than not get on with my blogging pursuits. But I think I'll take a nap first.
