Hello, Humans! How are y'all doing these days? Today is Groundhog Day, as you know, and I hope you have all seen the movie by the same name? Did you know that Harold Ramis wrote the screenplay for both "Groundhog Day" AND the original "Ghostbusters" movies? (Not only a writer but a comedian, director and actor, he played one of the original ghostbusters, the one with the glasses, remember that one?) Sadly, he died in 2014. This past weekend, Richard and I watched the recent Ghostbusters movie that was made with women having the leading roles. I thought it was hilarious! Almost all of the original actors from the first Ghostbusters movie had cameo roles in the new film, and that was a very nice touch! And I might have mentioned this to you before, and I promise I don't ALWAYS find a link to England but it does just seem to happen, but Harold Ramis won the BAFTA award for Best Original Screenplay for "Groundhog Day"! (BAFTA is like the British Academy Award.)
Funny thing, but I had a problem today at work and after spending quite some time on the phone with a help desk, I was told to call back TOMORROW and the problem should be sorted out by then (that is me paraphrasing since I use the word "sorted" because of my English husband!) Of course, you know I just had to say, "Wait a minute, today is Groundhog Day, does this mean I am going to call back tomorrow and the next day and the next day and the next day, etc, etc, etc.?) Now, you know I heard some laughter on the other end of the line!
I have been very busy at work just lately so I have not had much time for blogging. Sometimes I just want to be with flowers, even if I have to go back in time to September and pretend I am in Eastbourne! (Please note, I didn't stay at this lovely hotel, just walked up the steps and had Richard take my photo. I have no shame!)
Happy Groundhog Day to you all! (And by the way, the little groundhog doesn't matter that much to people in Georgia, we know we will have an early Spring!)
Oh! And guess what, you might not know this....there is a little thing called the SUPER BOWL on Sunday and it will be between the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots.
Go FALCONS! Even my friends in Wisconsin MIGHT be cheering for them! :-)
