RTT – It’s Groundhog Day…Again

Random Tuesday Thoughts

It’s that time again folks – so grab the funky purple button (what’s with that ham, anyway?), link up to Keely and play along with Random Tuesday Thoughts.


Today’s edition:  The Annual Groundhog Rant.


So, here it is…February.  My least favorite month of the year – for all sorts of reasons, but mostly because it’s going to be at least six weeks before I see the sun or any sign of life around here.  No matter what the stupid groundhog says.

Because while it is PERPETUALLY GRAY here in my neck of the woods I imagine it’s sunny as all get-out in Puxatawney and I bet the rotten little buck-toothed rodent is dancing around going, “See?  My shadow!  It’s my shadow!  Six more weeks of winter!  Bwaaaaaaaaahahahahahahaaaaaaaa!”


Going a little crazy?  Not at all.  Why do you ask?


But Phil the Weatherman was right…it’s all the groundhog’s fault.

Puxatawney Phil needs to die.

I don’t care how well he drives for a quadruped.


Oh, PETA is going to be after me now.  Have you heard?  They want the organizers of Puxatawney’s Ground Hog Day Festival to replace Phil with a robot.

Does this organization not have one thinking member that looks at their press releases and says, “Hey, look guys – this is pretty damn stupid.  Do we really want to publish this?”

No, I didn’t think so either.


Ah, well, at least we know what we’ll be watching this evening.  I don’t think The Young One has ever seen Groundhog Day.

There I go again – I’m just racking up the votes for that Excellence in Parenting award that I know is just waiting for me somewhere.


“You want a prediction about the weather, you’re asking the wrong Phil. I’ll give you a winter prediction: It’s gonna be cold, it’s gonna be gray, and it’s gonna last you for the rest of your life.” — Phil the Weatherman

Have a lovely Groundhog Day, y’all.
