PC: It’s Groundhog Day [beat, beat] again.
The words of Phil Connors, leading character in the brilliant Groundhog Day (a film about which I know far too much).
(there’s a fun little game played by film buffs called The Mark Strong But Game – so-called because it was brought to popular attention by the actor Mark Strong. You run through the cast of a good film and add the not-good cast member. In the case of the above it would be ‘Groundhog Day. With Bill Murray. But Andie MacDowell’. Yep, it just works, doesn’t it?)
The real Groundhog Day is tomorrow (February 2nd), and yes, it is really held in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. So don’t say you don’t learn anything from hanging around here.
Today, though, is the start of my own little Groundhog Day recurring event, it is the first day of the annual February post-a-day-Blogathon, inspired by young Mr Masher.
And here’s a work update.
This afternoon (it is 2pm Thursday), I am sitting on my couch.
I’m between ‘day job’ contracts and, according to my meticulously documented schedule, I am supposed to be working on my writing.
Like all writers, things aren’t going to plan.
I have written my shopping list.
I have written a couple of emails.
I am writing this blogpost.
I’ve written a few Tweets.
Sadly, the one thing that I haven’t written is the rewrite of Episode 3 of ‘Shelved’.
I’ll just have to spend some time over on YouTube looking at video of motorbikes.
Just until inspiration lands.
See you tomorrow, then?
I’ll try to have another interesting fact or two for you.
Ooh, must go!
Jeremy Kyle is on.
