It’s Groundhog Day, Again …

The comma placement in this phrase is so. very. important. People really underestimate the importance of the comma.  (Eats Shoots and Leaves – anyone??)

D&D_GroundhogDay.gifI just cannot help myself, I love this movie. I saw it in the movie theater in 1993 when it was released and I was rather on the very pregnant side. I have never been a fan of going to the movie theatre. Too many people (ugh, people) and noise, and icky butter popcorn smell. Nope, not my thing.

I was a little shocked to find out that this is the 25th anniversary of the movie, but … duh, the Boy will be 25 this year too. Lord help me.

I do watch this movie every year, just like I watch the Grinch every Christmas. It is a tradition and while we really don’t have any six extra weeks of winter, um, every, it is still fun to get a sense of what the poor yankees have to deal with.

I will say – we are so very not equipped to deal with any real winter weather in any way. We had to close down streets, I-10, and especially bridges just a couple of weeks ago for ice – again. First time since 2014. So much for global warming. None of this makes sense to me.

That said, Phil has no bearing on our winter at all, but the movie is just so fun and I just can’t help myself. In an odd way, all the strangeness of the movie works and the funny little aside is that the Boy’s middle name is based on one of the actors. Not spelled the same way, but the inspiration was there because he was funny. Nope not Bill Murray. Or Andie McDowell either.
