I know, I know, it's February 1st, not February 2nd. A Groundhog Day post should wait until tomorrow. Except tomorrow is Saturday, and I don't post on Saturday. So I'm doing a little Groundhog Day Post today!
No Groundhog Day post would be complete without nn abundance of references to the classic Bill Murray/Andy McDowell film, Groundhog Day. You know it well, I hope. Basic plot: Weatherman Phil Connors (Murray) is assigned the dreaded task of reporting on the outcome of Punxsutawney Phil's annual Groundhog Day appearance. He gets stuck in a time loop and finds himself reliving February 2nd again and again, and takes increasing liberties each day. Seemingly, nothing he does will get him out of the loop. Observe:
Interested in a relatively quick and fun read to celebrate Phil (groundhog and character from the movie)? Get yo'self a copy of Lauren Oliver's Before I Fall! I've posted about it previously here, so I won't rehash that, but it's a title that'll get you thinking. As noted previously, there are several heavy topics covered and mature content as well, so it's not for the Liesl & Po set.
