Tongue Re: You might be an Aikido addict if ....

...you get your hair cut, but tell your stylist that it still has to be long enough to stay in a pony tail (and out of your eyes) when you train. (The poor guy is at least used to my messed up hairstyle priorities. I also need a style that can be dried with the car's air vents. )

...you scheduled your haircut around Aikido training, and left an extra hour between so you could stay after class and practice more.

...you have an ice pack (ice in a plastic bag from 7/11) on your knee while you're getting your hair cut, because you landed on it screwy doing ukemi for ikkyo ura the night before.

...you're being really aggressive about icing your ouchy knee because you're going to an Aikido seminar next weekend, and don't want to miss out on any of it.

...the first thing you do when you get home is read AikiWeb.

Sheesh...
