Today is the day that I celebrate all of the amazingness that you contributed to blogland this week. It is that day again. What day is that you ask? How can you have forgotten? Drum roll please. It is HERE'S TO YOU THURSDAY, of course! The very best day of the blogging week. It is the precursor to the best day of the work week.

Here is what is going down: this is a weekly event. The best (or worst) part is that I am not going to explain why I chose "whatever" footage for each of you. If, you watch your footage and are scratching your head at the end, well that means I didn't do a very good job. However, all is not lost. You can email me at and ask me what I was thinking when I chose that particular piece of footage off of youtube and connected it to you. And then I will tell you. Then I will start sending up prayers that I haven't offended the crap out of whoever is on the receiving end of that Because, honestly, I will tell you right now... I admire all of you enormously so I really hope that doesn't happen.

Also, this is not an exclusive venture by any means. I hope that you will take the time to watch ALL of the footage because I don't pick bad footage:-) I also hope that you might check out the blog of the person I dedicated the footage to because they are pretty darn awesome. If you haven't figured this out yet... I pick the footage based on something that you've written or something that I've gleaned from your personality. Think on that for a while... If you are having trouble watching the entire video (meaning it is being cut off on one side), click on it a couple of times and it will take you straight over to youtube. If you click on the four squares at the bottom corner of the video, it will enlarge it to fill your screen. The escape key will bring it back to normal size. The back arrow will bring you back to my page.

Now, let's get this PARTY STARTED!!!!

  6. @Nicole ~ Go back and read your post FINDING JOY. I think I pay better attention to what you write than you do!!!

  7. AHHH - Got it! I am slow on the uptake.. and my writing is more of a flow or stream of consciousness.. hahahaha... You got me - AGAIN!

  8. Hey Robin, sorry I haven't been on here much. I've been going through a family crisis. My step daughter decided to break our hearts just a few days after Christmas and I guess we are still in shock and trying our best to accept the decisions she has made. Anyway, I haven't felt like writing at all, sometimes times are just too overwhelming...I know the JT and CK were for someone else but it helped for me to listen to it as well. I've been thinking of you and I hope I'll find myself, my voice soon.

    Love ya,

  13. I wondered what you'd be able to come up with this week and once again you have not disappointed. I loved the bit (on my clip)about the Blackberry users...Son's girlfriend does that head down 'creepy' thing! I enjoyed all those clips and checked out the blogs so I could 'get' the reference. Boy you are so good at this. I know I say it every time but you are. I really look forward to these weekly treats. Thank you once again.
