Things that make you go "Hmmmmm!"

Things that make you go, "Hmmmmm!" Today I typed in dailyadmiration (instead of dailyafirmation) for my journal user id.

Things that make you go, "Hmmmmm!" Tonight I saw someone pull up to, get out, and actually use a telephone booth.

I stopped at the ABC Store, and purchased an "L," a "Q," and a "U." Due to an overstock situation, Q's were half price. Not really, not that kind of ABC store. <singing>Ay Bee Cee Dee Eee Eff Gee, Aiche, Eye, Jay, Kay... well you know the rest of the song.</singing>

I bought a big bottle of Goldschlager, and a big bottle of Maker's Mark, a change from my regular Canadian Club. I feel a little celebratory, and with the Stomp this weekend, I'm going to treat myself to the "good stuff."

Well, me an' my lady had our first big fight,
So I drove around 'til I saw the neon light.
A corner bar, an it just seemed right.
So I pulled up.

Not a soul around but the old bar keep,
Down at the end an' looking half asleep.
An he walked up, an' said : "What'll it be?"
I said: "The good stuff."

He didn't reach around for the whiskey;
He didn't pour me a beer.
His blue eyes kinda went misty,
He said: "You can't find that here.

'Cos it's the first long kiss on a second date.
Momma's all worried when you get home late.
And droppin' the ring in the spaghetti plate,
'Cos your hands are shakin' so much.
An' it's the way that she looks with the rice in her hair.
n' eatin' burnt suppers, the whole first year,
An' askin' for seconds to keep her from tearin' up.
Yeah, man, that's the good stuff."

He grabbed a carton of milk an' he poured a glass.
An' I smiled an' said: "I'll have some of that."
We sat there an' talked as an hour passed,
Like old friends.

I saw a black an' white picture an' it caught my stare,
It was a pretty girl with bouffant hair.
He said: "That's my Bonnie,
Taken 'bout a year after we were wed."

He said: "Spent five years in the bottle,
When the cancer took her from me.
But I've been sober three years now,
'Cos the one thing stronger than the whiskey:

Was the sight of her holdin' my baby girl.
The way she adored that string of pearls,
I gave her the day that our youngest boy, Earl,
Married his high school love.

An' it's a new tee-shirt saying: 'I'm a Grandpa'.
Bein' right there as our time got small,
An' holdin' her hand, when the Good Lord called her up,
Yeah, man, that's the good stuff."

He said: "When you get home, she'll start to cry.
When she says: 'I'm sorry,' say: 'So am I.'
An' look into those eyes, so deep in love,
An' drink it up.
'Cos that's the good stuff.
That's the good stuff."

I turned in my Lo Fi Usability Test on my ME Project Website. Tonight's class time was reserved as "project time," and I spent it, well, working on my project. I got the first of the secondary pages coded, most of which I can duplicate to create the other two secondary pages.

Things that make you go, "Hmmmmm!" Both Will and Jenny were absent from class tonight.

Things that make you go, "Hmmmmm!" I filled up my gas tank tonight @ $2.19 a gallon.
