Groundhog Day

I absolutely love Groundhog Day. My deep infatuation stems from the movie for sure. Loved that movie. Still love that movie. It ranks on my all time top 5 with Gross Point Blank, Karate Kid, Ghostbusters, and Encino Man. I have made every analyzation possible of each of the above movies, but more so with Groundhog Day.

There are so many creative moments of genius shown in this movie, yet so many things they could have also done. I have always hoped for a sequel or a full length deleted scenes release.

Have you ever thought about the things you would do, if you had your own personal Groundhog Day? Well, I have. Quick synopsis for those that have been deprived of seeing this film: A weatherman wakes up each morning and it is groundhog day, again and again and again, for years presumably. Only he doesn’t start over, he remembers each day, knows that he is stuck on the same day. So what would you do with your own Groundhog Day? Number 1 Groundhog Day activity for me? Dominoes. As in long trains of dominoes that you knock down and they make cool pictures and so on. Not the pizza. Yep, I would spend day after day learning how to make really long trains of dominoes to knock down. I guess it wouldn’t be day after day because its my Groundhog Day right? I would also learn the piano, the yukalaylee, and the guitar.

If only Groundhog Day were during baseball season. I could get half the stadiums done in one day! Did I mention that is the major item on my bucket list? To see a baseball game in every major league stadium.
Bill Murray (the star of Groundhog Day) used to own the Salt Lake Trappers. Funny how so many things revolve around baseball.

Did you hear about how PETA wants to sue the Punxatawny Phil

caretakers for poor living arrangements? Seriously? He probably has it better than most of Kearns. (Trust me on this one, I have been in a lot of the houses there.) Seriously, that’s ridiculous.

Encino man really? That is just sad.

I could eat a taco every day and never get sick and tired of it.

I heard them talking on the radio about how good Phil actually has it. They said he was in a climate controlled enviroment and was treated like a prince. Maybe it's just the way they pull him out of the hole that PETA is upset, but they are just a bunch of nutters.

Encino man? Can't get over that one.

Ahhh, Kearns. My neighbor girl here in Salem served her mission in the Salt Lake South mission. She told me that Kearns was her favorite area, because it reminded her of NE Salem - where we live. So very funny.

I would learn karate. Black belt level.

Encino man? Yes, that is sad. So very.

I would probably just keep reading your blog day after day about a day that just keeps on keeping on. That sounds fun.
Some houses are really sick and I couldnt do your job for one more reason now.......dirty houses.....I would say you need to clean that up before I can come in and deliver your baby
