It's a phrase I've used for longer than I care to remember. Whenever something good happens in my life, that's my usual response.

I got it from a Robin Williams appearance on LAUGH-IN, and I would have bet good money he'd said it in response to being introduced to Frank Sinatra.

Well, this is the age of YouTube, and sure enough, the clip is there -- only it's Cindy Williams he'd just met. Something of a shift in scale!

Gonna keep using the phrase tho!

In one of those amazing bits of cosmic coincidence, I
read this post and then went to read a TEEN TITANS comic
from the 80s (making my way through the Wolfman/Perez
years) and what do you know? A character uses almost
this exact expression! What are the odds?
