It's in!


Happy Groundhog's Day, everyone!

The prediction's been made! The statement's been released on Groundhog.org :

Here Ye! Here Ye! Here Ye!

On Gobbler's Knob on this fabulous Groundhog Day, February 2nd, 2008
Punxsutawney Phil, the Seer of Seers, Prognosticator of all Prognosticators,
Rose to the call of President Bill Cooper and greeted his handlers, Ben Hughes and John Griffiths.

After casting a weathered eye toward thousands of his faithful followers,
Phil consulted with President Cooper and directed him to the appropriate scroll, which proclaimed:

"As I look around me, a bright sky I see, and a shadow beside me.
Six more weeks of winter it will be!"


Oh, joy! Did you know that Phil speaks in "Groundhogese", which is only understood by the President of the Inner Circle. I highly advise you to find out more interesting facts about Phil here. It's the most I've laughed in a while. Not that I don't believe it's true, or don't respect the groundhog.

Today I watched "Groundhog's Day" with Bill Murray and it was funny. It reminds me of my childhood. And while you crazy cats were out celebrating 6 more weeks of winter, I was celebrating my mom's birthday - because she shares her special day with the Groundhog's special day... for two entirely different "special" reasons.

I want to stop being sick.
