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. Robin, you have this one right on the mark! As a matter of fact, it's so good, I posted the lyrics on my blog.

  2. I've said it before and I'll say it again... Sydney Bristow is TOTALLY hot. (Vaughn wasn't so bad to look at either)

    And I love the Jane Austen fight club! ;)

  3. I might be back, but I've missed out on so much on here and I can't see to catch up. :-(

  4. As usually you are closer to home than you know, though today isn't a good day to be watching that for me. It brought me to tears.

  5. Wonderful clips as usual! And yes, a great reminder on the value of kindness. Pretty funny after watching the clip on Jane Austen's Fight Club. :D (and I haven't heard that clip from Welcome Back in a long time - great memories!)

  6. OMG!!! Dead on my friend!!! THANK YOU!!! I posted it on Facebook too!!! Love it!

  7. I love Thursdays, precisely to see what you've picked and for whom; they're weekly gifts, chosen with love ....

  8. Thank you Robin. I am the queen of the night and I am gettin me a cane...that is too cool. It is a good song. I love your Here's to you Thursday.
    And that Jane austen fight club thing. lmao.

  9. I love Jane Austen's Fight Club. It is brilliant. Oh, I wish someone made such a movie for real, it would be awesome. As for the video for me - wow, it is such a beautiful song. For some reason even though these lyrics are made of pretentious cliches (remember I am a cold, reserved European who cannot talk about feelings at all irl), it doesn't seem pretentious at all. I didn't know he's got such a good voice. I had such a terrible day and, even though this is surprisingly fitting with my last blog entry, this song, today is sounds somewhat ironic. That's not your fault though, of course.

  10. @your comment: see, I think I was in the middle of listening to this song while you were writing that I haven't commented, lol. How could I not comment, come on :)

  11. HAHAHAHAAA!! I saw this earlier but couldn't listen at work so I forgot to check back. That is SOOO embarrassing. Oh my gosh, what a nightmare. Love it. Thanks for the thoughtful picks. You're great.
