It's Groundhog Day!!!!

Today, according to my Harlequin Calendar, is GROUNDHOG DAY!

Groundhog Day is one of my favourite films. So funny, but in it's way, sort of deep too, showing how Bill Murray's character grows and changes throughout the many, many replays of the same wintry day. It's like a journey film too, with that sweet, happy hit at the end where he finally reaches his destination ie. the 3rd of February, after he's been lost in the world of 2nd of February for heaven alone knows how long. You never actually find out how many times Groundhog Day repeats for Phil the cynical weatherman but to learn some of the skills he acquires along the way, it must be hundreds of times, and many years and years in time for him.

I'll be watching the movie myself today, to celebrate...
