Last night, while I wasn't sleeping, I fretted about today's post. Let me tell you, that just about never happens. Usually, it is a work in progress all week long. Well, the lack of regular posting due to the holiday really messed with my Thursday blog. I had a few ideas, but not really enough to put together a decent post. After twenty minutes of worry, I turned on my light, fired up my laptop, and scrolled through my Google Reader. It was about 12:30am. Can I tell you how much I hate being up at that time of night wide awake, with sleep nowhere in sight? I don't think I have to tell you. I trust that you have a grasp on the obvious.

For about ten minutes I entertained the idea of going with a bunch of hilarious footage that pertained to none of you, but cleared more footage out of my favorites. *sigh* I just couldn't do it. So, I stuck with Google Reader and youtube. By 3am, I had a list and I was tired. Two birds, one stone.

If you don't know what I am talking about, you must be new. 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.

To recap for any newbies to this 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. Of course, you will have to deal with this all over again: Lastly, don't forget to turn off my music player at the bottom of the page. Sorry for the inconvenience.

  1. You couldn't have know that but I just ADORE this song (the one in Buffy video)! It makes me cry 90% of times when I hear it. As for Buffy - I still remember my complete outburst of lame and crying when watching the very last episode! I LOVE Buffy but I've always preffered her with Spike than Angel (anyway I can't really grasp why this vid is for me? do I mention my "love" for vampires that often?)...AND this "famous failures" thing? How brilliant is that? how do you even find these things?! I think I'm going to save it to my faves on youtube and watch once in a few days, because one of my worst fears is always - a failure. Also - nice to see Equilibrium here (it's not for me, but I LOVE the movie) and Grey's Anatomy is ALWAYS good choice - one of the best tv shows EVER (except 5th season was absolutely crappy). God, in 3rd season every single episode was making me cry and I know I shoudn't admit this.

    one more thing? to stay up until 3am just to make this post - that makes me admire you even more than I already did, you know?

    (and to clear one more thing up: about these guys singing Lady Gaga I posted: I absolutely don't mind if you "steal" all vids I post for your HTYThursdays, really. I'm even happy if someone pass the video on)


  2. You know how I love your Buffy videos! Every time you post one for your HTYThursdays I get all giddy, check and see if any co-workers are around, then clap my hands in pure happiness.

    Yep. I love 'em that much.

    You rock, Robin. I hope you have a particularly beautiful weekend.

  3. You know Robin Buffy was my second choice over the 4th. I don't really watch much TV. I have those shows I love on DVD.

    I'm not sure if I will go past season 2 on Grey's I've seen season 3 once before on TV and I watch parts of season 6 on Hulu. I'm not sure the quality of the beginning continued.

  4. The failure one honestly brought tears to my eyes, Robin. Now I've got a lump in my throat. Thanks, I needed that.

  5. As always, you keep me pleasantly entertained! I'm back by the way! In case the comment didn't clue you in!

  6. I LOVE brothers ans sisters!!! And I loved that scene!!!!!!!! That was a perfect match for me!!!!!!!! I loved it!

  7. I feel honored to have had 2 selections chosen for me! Is it terrible to feel left out on the weeks there aren't any with one's name on them, as though the cool kids snubbed you??? We can't all be included every time, but it's sure nice to be invited to the party ....

  8. Oh Robin that is so funny!!! I love that video! I have never seen Brothers and Sisters but heard that its a good show! I love how they jumped in with their clothes on! Hilarious!

    Thanks so made me smile today!!
