    Any suggestions for a good tennis coach in the DC area? I am a 3.0/3.5 player who has played sparingly because of school and now looks to get back into it a little more.

    Come to Wakefield Park Saturday at 9 and meet some of the TWMAC crew. You'll like us. :)

    Look for the group wearing colorful clothing and having outrageous amounts of fun.

    Bummer. Now I gotta give back all the ticket money I took selling seats to the Auzzie/Mr. Han cage match. Why don't you come out anyway and we'll all help you move afterward? :)

    BTW, we are treating our intern to lunch next Wednesday, so you'll see our smiling faces around noontime. Pass out the shades: I'll be wearing my baby blues.

    Ah, Mr. Han's nasty lefty kick serve is equivalent to xisbums's dress attire. Both give you vertigo!

    Stare at flag picture for a couple of seconds then look quickly at a white wall!

    p.s. Dale said that MrHan would like to join the ladder. Sending out invite with a pack of twizzlers.

    Hollywood,

    Darn it.,,, Ferrero winning is not helping me ignore my need to get his outfit!

    Find it for me! You are the lotto expert here..

    Then maybe TheJRK can leave his house not wondering if he's dressed like Sup.

    thanks to dats, i'll forever think of that guy as "the mosquito." which makes me think of gonzo the muppet. whom ferraro also resembles.

    JRS and Brgerflipr - FTW!!!!!

    6-2, 6-1 in the combo league.

    Though truth be told, the other team was more like 4.0 + 2.5. I think he mode about 3 serves the whole match. Sappy, I've got an opponent for you!!!

    OH - I loves me some freshly strung blue gear.

    I've actually been to that convention before... the organizer contacted my kendo group to see if we could do a demonstration. We went there and I wanted to fall on my sword. I think the organizer asked us this year but we declined.

    JRS...good win!

    DVI...another paypal dispute? *eyebrow* Interesting that you keep having this problem. Also, which 'to the maxxxx' racquet do you use, out of curiosity?

    JRK...has your kendo group ever demonstrated at the street festival during Cherry Blossom? I saw Mrs.JRK at Skyline the other day...took me a moment to recognize her with the new do, but it is super cute!

    Anybody have laptop recommendations?
    JRS, TFM, Sappy...I'm looking at you. Oh...I should add...*cheap* laptop recommendations. As in price, not quality (don't need something that can restart my car). Looking for something to use in class (I'm the student)...pretty basic, but it would be nice to have built in wireless and a DVD drive/writer. I've done a little research, but was curious if our resident computer gurus had any thoughts.
