Login in the morning.
You gained 2 experience points!
Points are points, but others are cooler.

(Okay, so it's not 5-7-5....)

Updated: Second Try

Monk in the morning:
You gained 2 'sperience points!
Feels like I cheated.

    Variation on a theme.
    First morning coffee.
    While I slept, XP went up!
    Oh, how ironic.

    "You gained one XP
    now 9-9-3-2-3-6
    until you reach vroom"

    -- Randal L. Schwartz, Perl hacker


    In case it's not clear, when a saint gets an XP, we get told "xxxxx points until you reach level vroom", since there are no more levels to climb through...

    Well, not to beat a dead Haiku:

    The smell of coffee
    and XP in the morning.
    Smells like ... victory.

    my tiny attempt:

    Dark Blue theme matches sky.
    Boot laptop, brew some coffee.
    Joy, new XP here.

    i think that it's 5-7-5, but i pretty much failed phonics when i was kid, so i'm probably wrong.
