SURPRISE. Drum roll please. It is once again HERE'S TO YOU THURSDAY. Yes, you read that correctly. HERE'S TO YOU THURSDAY is back on Thursday.  For those of you unfamiliar with the once again weekly HERE'S TO YOU THURSDAY posts, I bet you're wondering what is going on. (If you are just checking in for today and looking for my A to Z post, fret not. I posted it earlier and you can find it here, or you can click on older posts and go back one post to read it.) Now, peeps, let me give you the skinny on this event...

This is a weekly event landing typically on Thursdays. 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. DYING LAUGHING!!!!!! I love, love, love that!!!!! hahaha!!!

    This is fun! Now I have to go find your "D." :)

    But what is this word "teeny-tiny?" I need BIGGY-WIGGY! :)

    Waiter, drink please!

  2. Robin...LOVED that! I've never seen that video before, but the footage they used was from one of my favorite episodes of Smallville.

    And, I -think- I can guess how it applies to me... :D

  3. Good one for Mark! Sorry I didn't catch this until Friday. My brain needed detoxing last night.

  4. Ah yes, Robin, I am indeed always in search of freedom. Has a lot to do with those of us who try to go against our upbringing and also a lot to do with just who I am. My friends Dad recently said to me: 'You don't have a socialist bone in your body, do you?' I replied: 'Like you had to ask!'
    There are so many ways to interpret freedom. It's intriguing and it's cool in so many ways.
    I actually love the Janis Joplin sentiment of freedom being nothing left to lose as well. I've realized that's not necessarily a sad sentiment.
    I noticed the Superman icon in the video and thought of my good friend. He came back from a tour in Iraq and he had gained so much confidence and grown to be very muscled. He had been so quiet and shy. He often drove a motorcycle and wore a Superman t-shirt after his hard won transformation.
    Yes, if I could I would scream from the rooftops about what freedom means to me. It's one of the reasons I can't spend July 4th in the Seattle area anymore. It just doesn't feel right.

    BTW, that Ferris Bueller clip reminds me of why that movie is just so darn awesome. I swear they don't make them like that anymore. Thanks for another wonderful Thursday post. These are so great!

  5. Thanks Robin. Just surfing around after work, and this made my day.

  6. I'll never forget I'd bought a ticket for Pretty woman and I ended up seeing some horror movie instead.

  7. One of my favorite scenes!

  8. Tim: YW. That was a great movie.

    Grumpster : Your life is an adventure.

    JJ: Mine, too:)
