I exclaimed this:

"Holy Moly"

I've been using the expression "Holy Moly" a lot again recently. It was a favourite of mine as a child and it gives me great delight to utter it, often 5 or 6 times a day.

It's a very satisfying expression. A quick trip to Wikipedia explains that the phrase is an "exclamation of surprise" that originally comes from "the Captain Marvel Comic-Book characters". (It's also a UK gossip site)

I love the phrase "exclamation of surprise" though. In today's desensitised world, I'm happy to take all the surprises I can get.
