How about "waaaait"? As in everyone's favorite phrase about the weather wherever they happen to live: "If you don't like this weather, just wait a little while..."

Opposite of Wheeeeee? I like audreys' "Whoops"

Haven't checked my balances either. I did a quick percentage calculation and would rather not. :-)

I'm just happy that I am going backpacking for a month. No more internet access for me for a few weeks.
