Not the End

Today is the last day of April and I am thinking, “How the heck did that happen?” The month seemed to fly by. That means that today is the last day of the A to Z Blogging Challenge. Or maybe not. Normally I would totally fret not meeting the deadline, but I've learned to take things in stride. So what if I still have to do V, W, X, Y and Z. Are the blogging police going to hunt me down and give me a citation? Nah. So I can just not finish the race...or I can just post late, which is what I'll do. I'll just finish when I can. Life is too short to sweat the little things.

In an effort to post something today I am cheating a bit and posting a few videos for my V post.

The first is one from Robbie Williams and Kylie Minogue. I like both of them and they seem to be having a lot of fun in this video. I hope you enjoy it. Here is Kids.

The next video also includes Robbie. This time he sings with Nicole Kidman. Not only do they both have great voices, I love the story presented and the classic look.

That Robbie and Nicole video just gives you a good feeling, doesn't it? Aaah, to be in love. But what if love doesn't work out? The next video always makes me grin. I first saw it posted on my friend's Facebook page. I'd never heard of Jaron and The Long Road to Love. I am not sure if they play him on German radio or not, but this song is great.

And the last one is not one I like to watch. The first few times I thought it was interesting but now it is more disturbing. I call it Planet of the Apes meets the creator of Frankenstein. Very clever but weird. I hope I don't have strange dreams tonight.

Now that is scary! Modified ape-people. Creepy-looking things, aren't they. The mad scientist guy ain't too hot-looking either.

Oh, and I almost forgot. V isn't just for videos. V is for votes. My friend, Nikki, (who unlike the monkey creatures isn't creepy at all) needs votes. She is very close to winning the Hometown Hotties competition. You can help. Go to this site, register and vote for “that1girl”. If you do, I'll keep the mad scientists away from you and you will be blessed with good kharma. :-)

That's it for now. Maybe I'll post the rest of my letter posts tomorrow. Maybe not. Maybe I'll just spend it with the family and post on Monday. Or even Tuesday. Yeah, I am blogging deadline rebel. LOL

Linda, we did it! Congratulations! I have an award for you!!

Cool videos. :-) Too bad about not finishing, but you're right. Why sweat something as unimportant as a challenge without a prize? ;-)

Misha, even if I didn't finish I did have 25 posts in April (just one post and a few letters short of completion). I came down with tonsillitis and just couldn't do the posts and everything else. But as far as I am concerned it was a success. I'm a new blogger and I learned a lot, met nice people, and discovered some good blogs. That's a prize in itself.

As one of the "blogging police" I'm going to have to cite you in contempt of the challenge! Just kidding. As one of the co-hosts, I'm actually glad you enjoyed the challenge, and also thrilled that you managed to find a pace which works well for you. I look forward to reading more of your posts!

I'm glad that you participated in the A-Z challenge because it means I got to meet you in blog world! As someone who's also fairly new to blogging, I think we have to stick together. :-) I've really enjoyed your posts, and I know how hectic life can be, and the challenge was not easy - add in there having tonsillitis (yeesh!) plus just LIFE, I think you did great.

Ick! That modified ape video was weird!!! Great song, though :))

A to Z still lives. I keep running across bloggers who are still lagging to finish up. And some are just trying to make their rounds to visit all of the participants. I guess I'm in that latter category. Glad you joined us--finishing isn't everything!
