Today is the day that I celebrate all of the amazingness that you contributed to blogland this week. Yep, 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!!!!

  1. Robin, you do such an awesome job with these every week! I love the Katy Perry song (had never heard it before) and although it took me a minute to adjust to fireworks bursting out of someone's chest, I really like the video.

    And I love Zooey Deschanel and it's so cute to see her and Emily together. Awwww...

    PS If there was an award for Most Hilarious Comment, I would surely give it to you for the comment you left on my post that literally had me crying in laughter. You are so freakin' cool, girl. (that's what she said!)

  2. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Firework song... My roommate plays it over and over to remind himself to think that way.

    Great post!

  3. Thank you Robin! You made my day.:) I smiled when I heard the song and do understand why you chose it, what can I say but that I truly appreciate that you took the time to read and understand my post about light? Thank you for a great surprise!

  4. Robin!!!! I am SO glad I didn't live in the 70s!! Those guys' shorts were SHORT!!! I couldn't concentrate on the song because I was worried I was going to get a FLASH dance, you know what I'm saing?! A-oooh!

  5., losing keys? What keys?...
    The world has a way of quieting us down...sure nuff.

  6. Robin: Have a wonderful evening! BTW, Jack Johnson is a chill pill.

  7. Yup! I cried. Maybe we should send each other boxes of kleenex for Christmas, whaddaya think??

    As usual, you hit it right on the nose. This was a perfect video to go with my post because it showed the other side of how I feel. The side underneath the anger.

    The kicker is that I know if I could get him to watch that video, and really pay attention to the words, he'd probably have about 20 minutes of clarity and then head straight to the bar. He knows what he's doing, but he hates himself too much to care. I'm just grateful that our folks aren't around to see it.

    OK, so now I have to go stalk the other blogs that you did videos for! Thats what I love about your Here's To You Thursdays. I get to go figure out why you chose the song(s) that you did for each person.

    Thanks again for the shout out! And for all of the heartfelt comments on my letters. I really, really appreciate the feedback.


  8. Good on ya Robin. Hope you are feeling better...

  9. Robin your an amazing women I love listening to all the songs you post every week...

  10. I LOVE how you put these together!!!


  11. yay, I have no idea WHY this video is for me :) however I enjoyed it because I like Zooey.

  12. Robin- losing keys for Chris?! You are too funny! These are awesome. Always inspiring and shows just how much you pay attention to those you read. Thanks for another great week!

  13. Robin, I'm playing catch up. Thank you for Thursday's tribute. You've given me some inspiration at at time when I sometimes wonder what the heck I am doing.
