    post editing is not as much fun as one might think it is.

    btw, you'll have an avatar too.

    In about 20,000 years the next Ice age will start.
    By 23,000 it would be full-scale.

    It will peak about 80,000 years from now.

    (Makes everything seem so pointless!)

    ananda, I was just hoping to correct spelling/grammar mistakes. I realize its only a forum, but I hate re-reading my posts only to come to the conclusion that I sound like an illiterate idiot.

    Now, editing my post may not remove the fact that I am an illiterate idiot, but at least I can hide it for a while...

    ananda and Tempest344 are in, based on their self-evident nominations, filled with beautiful poetry and photography. Those waves do look kinda big (or maybe you’re really small?;) ). We have three vacancies remaining at present.

    Perhaps there are people out there who might, but none of them are typing this post at the moment. While it appears that the vast majority of fedfans aren't quite sharp enough to distinguish between fed and his racquet manufacturer, recognising this distinction is hardly a challenge for the rest of us who understand a little bit about tennis. Thanks for understanding.

    ^^ That's selfish. We all have reading to do, but we can't do it because you deleted the paragraph that we were going to read. I hope the weather forecast was worth it. You sound anxious and disoriented - maybe you need Just a Quiet Space.

    Sorry to hear. Promise to take a nice hot bath tonight, and I might lift the ban from Love for the Sea for you.

    I took a hot shower without washing my luscious ooh la la herbal essence quality hair. (shh..)

    Don't bother about the ban from the Love for the Sea.

    Seas are overrated.

    I'm not too sure about online and I don't know Texas, except some airports, and that they have boots. I think your best bet is to befriend a Japanese national in your dorm or classroom and question them on where to get Tonic. I am in NY fairly often, so I buy shampoo there.

    No, that wasn't sarcasm in my earlier post lol

    Well, let me ask you this. Is Tonic really worth the effort?
    Because the cute japanese girls will melt in my hands after I give them an, "Ohayou~"

    Yes, Tonic itself is worth the effort. Meanwhile, you will be able to resolve your anti-nippon issues when you make a new friend. As for melting girls, it’s you know… So it’s a journey…

    It is a floral scent, almost minty, but this stuff smelled like chemicals - very strong.
