One week left…too many things to do. It’s 6:30 a.m. and I’m already at school, the only one here no doubt. Tied up with yearbook kids all day today. Meetings all day Friday and Tuesday. Slow connection at home precludes any real work on templates or sites over the weekend. And my list is loooonnnggg…Still waiting to hear from Pat about the newspaper template, so that’s kind of on hold (unless of course Joe wants to share his p-machine template which I think he said he got working at some point)…trying to get a weblog/reader study guide site set up for my lit kids to use with our new book The Secret Life of Bees (highly recommended, by the way) and later, Lords of Discipline…trying to figure out the best way to set up my individual logs in journalism since I haven’t been able to get the callback scripts for the template (everyone is too busy these days!)…thinking about the professional portfolio template, the class template, the independent study portfolio/weblog template…hmmm…is there a pattern here? I’ve got weblog fever in a bad way, and I know JUST enough about making them work to make them dangerously intriguing. Should be an interesting few days (and late nights).

Uh-oh….this sounds like me right now…my to-do list keeps getting longer and I can’t get anything done because I’m too busy adding items to my list 😉
Above, you said, “is there a pattern here,” and I just want to point out that the pattern I noticed was that of templates (although I suspect the pattern you referred to was just the numerous forms of weblogs)…it is time consuming to create models for others to use. Have we gotten to the point yet of knowing whether or not the tremendous time investment now might save time later? I thought about that ten years ago but keep forgetting to go back and try to answer the question! (but I think the answer for me, now, is: who cares? this is too much fun)
Cable modem with a new computer at home so I’m no longer strolling my way around…it’s fast so I don’t have to haul into the office anytime I want to do something slightly large…I’m a speed demon here at home!
