Ahh today. The "holiday" which actually has less meaning than say, Arbor Day. At least I'm all for trees.

I'm sure I could wiki it, but I'm too lazy to really care. It won't stop me from asking the question though:

How the HELL did this come to be? Groundhog Day, that is. PUHL-EESE (say it like Squidward!)

Having an over-grown rodent predict the end of winter and/or if we'll have more of it.

OF COURSE, we'll have more of it. You're in frickin' Pennsylvania in early February. Guess what? You're going to have more winter. A lot more. Not six more weeks. Try 12.

The only thing this day did bring that was good - was the movie of the same name.

C'mon, yeah it's a little lot sophomoric, but it totally works - even with Andie MacDowell. So in fact, the day is not a total loss, because you can expect that some cable station will be playing this over and over and over today.

Song by: Rufus Wainwright

Sophomoric? They study that film in film school. Much deeper than such a glib remark would suggest. It's one of my fave flicks hence the umbrage taken.

I LOVE that movie. We watch it at least once a year. Guess when.

If it weren't for this holiday we wouldn't have had a date close enough to select for our boy's birthday. Logan Beagle turns 4 today!

He's still waiting for your card.
