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.

I notice that I actually have some newbies for this event. How exciting! Well, 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. 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.

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

  1. What? Is that proposal video real???

  2. Hey, I didn't get one this year...but I'd still like to say that to know you is to love ya!

  3. @That One Girl ~ The vid is real (I think) just not for Lira. However she did get a very real proposal that was MUCH cooler. This was just honoring her cool proposal.

  4. so guess what: this video contains content from Sony Music Enterteinment who has block it in my country on copyright grounds. AAAGHR. This happens all the time. What's wrong with my country!!??!!

  5. @Gabriela ~ I will go my second choice then. Give me a minute.

  6. okay. so this one works. and what can I say other than 'wow' which is my usual reaction when watching this kind of videos? well, there's no other words. So: WOW. :)

  7. Ahh, thank you! I love Mary Chapin Carpenter! You're sweet!

  8. Robin, first of all thank you for sending this my way. As usual it is right on target. Oddly enough I had listened to this track just the other night. As you know, this has been weighing heavy on my mind.

    Second...I look forward to Thursday's to see what you have come up with for this week. I loved all of them. Your unique spirit and approach are...important. I love Mary Chapin and I don't think I had ever heard that particular tune. The proposal video was great!

    I am so glad you are you and you share yourself and all that you are with all of us.

    Carol-the gardener

  9. Thanks for the birthday wishes Robin. :) I appreciate it very much.

  10. AH HA HA HA HA! That is the SECOND best proposal ever! :D

  11. @Purple Cow ~ thanks for sending me a video since I neglected you this week. If you want to get something on Thursday, you gotta write more (wink).

    Gabriela ~ Ah well, that was an easy one. I knew you would love it.

    Miss Angie ~ Thanks!

    Carol ~ I am so glad you appreciated your video. I knew that was weighing on you. Losing people is hard. I love that song. It is sad and uplifting all that same time.

    Kim ~ I know it is an early birthday wish, but if I waited until next Thursday it would have been late! Enjoy your PARTY:-)

    Lira ~ I thought you would get a kick out the video. Definitely the SECOND best proposal.

  12. Better late than never right? Anyway, I tried to watch the video, even clicked the links to the right, then back to the original & it still wouldn't load. Not to worry, the title said it all & since I'm familiar with the Smallville Series, I get where it was going considering the title. Thanks for thinking of, I'm back off to my journey. Hugs~Mitzi

  13. Thank you sweet girl. I love that song. You blessed my heart today!

  14. Yay! Just got back from camping last night and I LOVE my video (as usual!) There was plenty of stuff in it (not just Buffy) that I loved (like the cast of Friends being awesome together, and the boys from Supernatural crying) and of course Christina Aguilera is always so confident and gorgeous because of it. Thank you so much Robin - as always you have the best taste in music AND videos!
