Thank You

I had no scheduled post for today’s Musical on Monday even if I wanted to be prepared in advance and I actually turned to the Internet because I had no song that was playing in my head.

Google. I was in search of a song. I was looking for happy songs. I thought of songs on gratitude.


I decided that not having a song today was no train-smash. I wasn’t going to be upset with myself for being useless blank. The last couple of days had been slightly blah but it was probably just one of those anti-climactic moments after more exciting days – debut of Alt.Exe and welcoming the Chinese New Year; anticipating a truly awesome year ahead.

Of course, I had tested my luck [in the casino]. I was winning (a measly R200 was the ‘investment’) but the machine started taking my money back. Hubby and little princess had finished playing at the arcade so I thought I would just give the casino back its money with my original R200. It was taking longer than anticipated so I increased my bet per spin. Alas, I got my free spins! I left the casino floor a winner (of R1,100). Yeah, I’m lucky! Lol!

Let’s go back to Musical on Monday.

I was driving home from work and Dido’s amazingly awesome voice filled the air.

Thank You!

Instantly, I was smiling, and I remembered clearly how this song was a huge favorite and I must have played it at least a couple of times a day back then.

Back then is around the release date of the album (or the single) which happens to be the time I was recovering from my depression divorce (same thing). By then, although I don’t recall now, there was a face or a name that went with this song. The specific is not as important as the fact that the song was part of my healing.

But this song isn’t only about sentimental value. It has amazing poetry. Dido’s voice is hauntingly enchanting. It has memorable melody. It’s perfect!

Coincidentally, today’s a rainy day but those rain clouds don’t dampen my day anymore. (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.)

Thank You


My tea’s gone cold, I’m wondering why I got out of bed at all
The morning rain clouds up my window, and I can’t see at all
And even if I could it’d all be grey, but your picture on my wall
It reminds me that it’s not so bad, it’s not so bad

I drank too much last night, got bills to pay, my head just feels in pain
I missed the bus and there’ll be hell today, I’m late for work again
And even if I’m there, they’ll all imply that I might not last the day
And then you call me and it’s not so bad, it’s not so bad and

I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life
Oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life

Push the door, I’m home at last and I’m soaking through and through
Then you handed me a towel and all I see is you
And even if my house falls down now, I wouldn’t have a clue
Because you’re near me and

I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life
Oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life

I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life
Oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life.
