'Cept I'm not well - feeling very much below par. Late nights, getting wet and lack of sunshine will do that to me.

However, found something for interesting while googling for info. as part of research for some writing. A Tai Chi screen saver. Didn't dare download on the State of the art donkey and cart speed that is dial-up. Also, think it might cost money. But was intrigued.

Wow. That is mucho large-o, I'll report back on that later.

Sorry to hear you're still unwell.

No laptop in the offing as yet. Have started on the beta, btw.

Sorry to hear you're still unwell.
Ta, muchly. Nothing more sleep, lots of rest and a little ray of sunshine won't cure.

Sorry to hear about the laptop. Is this for working in front of the TV to transcribe or what?

As to the beta - thanks very much. I'm fairly happy with Chapter 2 and trying to press on with Chapter 3 but Ceit still hasn't some up with the goods on the Harmony scene.

Yeah, I just want some cheapo thing to type on in more comfortable places. Things would get done much quicker then, I'm sure! I've got my Dad to pester people at work, so fingers crossed.

Another reason for the delay is that I'm imminent with my chapter one. Just got one more read though and then you can look at it.

Send it, send it. I'm going potty with the block on chapter 3 and need diversionary tactics.

Also need to watch some tai-chi sword form - need to ease myself into writing the American Football chapter by writing a scene (for a later scene) showing Angel practising. Any ideas where to find clips? I seem to remember early BtVS that featured Angel doing just that. (without the sword)

Does it have to be with a sword? Bob knows a bit of martial arts (Tang Soo Doo and a little Wu Shu. He says he knows a bit of Tai Chi. He might have a book somewhere...

I'm doing a kazaa search but not much as yet.

Chapter should be sent by now.

Doesn't have to be a sword, and thanks for the offer, but what I'm after is a video clip to watch, preferably of Angel in action, not a written account. I want to learn how to turn visual into verbal, not have it done for me. (I've done a little tai chi but it's difficult to watch yourself in the mirror and write at the same time. Besides, I'm nothing like Angel. I'm small, slight and - hey - girl here.)

As to the fic. - My mail is refusing to acknowledge I exist, as is yahoo. Must have done something to offend someone. LOL

I'm dl some akkido clip Bob thinks might be promising, but they might take awhile.

If you want a clip of Angel, then I'll see what I can do. Unfortunately I only have the first two series of AtS and BtVS S3 on video, not DVD so I can't rip it off for you. I could dl the ep, but that could take a day or so. I'm sure he was doing something with Buffy in early BtVS S3...

Failing that the best I can do is the pics in the book.

No need to go to those lengths, girl. Just point me at a website that still hosts clips of early Buffy and I'll find it. Does the german site still exist?

If you want to be really helpful,and looks to me as though you do, how's about taking over from ceit and having a go at the Harmony scene?
