    ... when you have a dream about naginatata training. And you've never touched a naginata! (happened to me last night)

    When you find a 7 page thread and can't believe that you haven't already made an entry.

    When you realise that you've spent more years reading E-Budo threads than you spent training in a dojo... oh, perhaps that's just me.

    When you see a thread that isn't a link to the Japan Times, and it brings tears of nostalgia to your eyes.

    When you still have E-Budo as one of the tabs that open up on your homepage every day, even when you haven't read anything interesting for over a year.

    On the visits, boards have declined all over. Blogs, too. Facebook and similar media are the current trend.

    Move along, move along.

    I'm writing a new script for Hollywood, to get a slice of the "King's Speech" market, it's going to be a period drama about Geisha cheerleaders in the Tokugawa period, titled "She loves you Ieya-ya-yasu".. featuring a schoolgirl Naginatatata expert with a stammer. There's a part for a Gaijin who teaches her to swear in English as a form of therapy.

    I think I may be onto a winner.

    If your heroine has large naginatatas, I'd watch it!

    It has been 9 months since I last visited. And sanity is still one of my weak points.
