You wake up in the morning. Slip on your AikiWeb Tshirt and boxer shorts. Grab a cup of coffee. Head straight to the computer.
Read O' Sensei's quote to help you get centered. (take deep breath)
Scan through all forums (even though no one has posted in the last 6 hours since you last checked.)
Does this sound familiar to anyone...or is it just me?

Oh well.... since I went ahead and READ all of these I guess I'll post.

When my ancient (circa '98) computer finally flopped its last disk I HAD to get a new one for no other reason that to check the threads :hypno: :yuck: :blush: :confused: :rolleyes:

And, you know... all those times when I DO read the 6 pages of posts (long into the night) I find that a lot of people have already expressed my opinions for me. How's that for aiki... I just let the momentum of the thread continue on :p with an added bonus of keeping my post count low :D

You're welcome to try but, since your legs aren't long enough to reach across the Atlantic, I'm not worried. Even if they were, because you don't know which part of Ft. Myers I'm currently in, your aim would probably be off. ;)
