Haha, the guy who got me interested in Aikido used to say that all the time, he was a good friend who I haven't seen in years. Thanks for the huge smile
Back to topic: The first technique I felt I had good control on was Irimi-Nage, too. Right in time for my 5th Kyu test!
Howver, since then, every time we were doing Irimi-Nage, I initially thought "Ahh finally something I know front to back", only to find out there's still a huge gap between consistent and acceptable Irimi-Nages and where I am, especially if my Uke is new to Aikido and doesn't know what to expect.
