Yes, I love Emacs too.

To repeat a command use 
        ESC number
examples: 
to move 10 lines down ---> ESC 10 C-n 
to insert 80 stars ---> ESC 80 *

To save a macro use 
        C-x ( 
        commands_sequence 
        C-x )
example:
To delete first and last word in current line --->

        C-x ( C-a M-d C-e M-Backspace C-n C-x )

to run macro use ---> C-x e

Now if you want to delete first and last word in next 100 lines use just

ESC 100 C-x e
