Very nice!

I always warm it up driving "granny style" under a light load. Not only does this warm the car up faster than letting it idle, it brings the oil pressure up too. You might be able to substitute holding the RPM's up as it sits, but nothing beats load. Also helps bring your trans up to temperature. Note: your engine oil takes longer to get up to temperature than the coolant. Allow an extra mile or two after your t-stat opens for the oil to warm.
