Re: I'm so glad tomorrow is Friday.

I always thought this was sung by a man. Hm. Apparently I wasn't paying attention to the lyrics.

I'd never heard this song before. I had heard this song about tequila before, and I'm pretty sure it came up here previously.

This one is much better, wouldn't you agree?

I particularly like the line "I like to drink you with a little salt and lime." I like that she addresses the tequila directly.

I'm also elated it's going to be Friday. And someone should buy me Richard Heene's Bear Scratch™.

I would be glad it's Friday, but I'm working Saturday (and, if things go very wrong, Sunday as well).

7: That commercial is hilarious.

My college roommates used to refer to me as the bear, since I often use wall corners to scratch my back. (That, at least, was what occasioned the first use of the nick name. Then they thought about my eating habits, ability to sleep for very long stretches, and morning grumpiness, and decided it was a good fit.)

And now its actually Friday, and I'm ecstatic! It's movie night! The family project of watching all 9,000,000 episodes of Star Trek TNG begins tonight!

11: No, no. You mean: "I feel . . . great happiness."

I had not heard that song before, and it's good.

In addition to the singing, the band is solid on that track. It's got a lot of honkey-tonk bounce to it.

My 12th-grade English teacher once shared an anecdote about a problem student's mother, who had requested a meeting. Pleaded the mother, "Surely, you must see that [Student X] is an exceptional student."

The teacher responded coolly, "Oh, she's exceptional, all right."

I, too, always thought this was sung by a gay man, an impression reinforced by the fact that I used to dance to it a lot at a gay country bar. There was some great line dance that went with it, of which I don't remember a step. (Have I already come out of the closet as a serious country line dancer? I went to that bar with my lurker friend every week for *years*.)

20: I would have thought it would be difficult to be a line dancer without other people knowing about it from the start. You can't really have a line of one.
