yatta: exclamation meaning, "I DID IT!"

Said in the cutest Japanese voice possible, of course: "Yatta!" Preferably accompanied with a little jump of joy and V-for-Victory sign. Usually heard after examination results are made public, when someone has finished a particularly arduous task, or when Julie has managed to connect her Internet all by herself.

This Japanese Word of the Week brought to you live from Gifu.

Yatta! (V sign) (in my case, the cute voice comes naturally)

Oops! I meant YOU did it, of course.
