Same day. Really feels surreal.
Wake up. Some food.
Tired. Moving slowly.
Pull yourself together.
And you’re off to see Punxsutawney Phil.
Same day. But different content.
Learning the subtleties and dimensionality of situations.
You feel dreaming.
And you do your job. Same as previous. And the next day.
Will be a carbon copy.
You need to do the same thing the next four days in a row.
And maybe, just maybe, it will all work out alright.
And that’s starting from complete mental exhaustion.
Well, that’s how I feel.
About Groundhog Day.
It’s a damn fine film.
Harold Ramis as director.
But Bill Murray is the star.
He just doesn’t give a fuck.
Starts off as a cross between Ron Burgundy and Dick Tremayne from Twin Peaks.
But he settles into a surly sarcasm which melts faces.
Very few can pull it off.
Thora Birch in Ghost World.
Bill Murray here.
And then there’s the lovely Andie MacDowell.
I used to be so in love with her when I was a little kid.
My first celebrity crush (if I remember correctly).
I was just fascinated with her hair.
A perfumed jungle.
Certainly some Baudelaire in there.
Maybe I can’t say anything really enlightening here.
Because I’m really tired.
But I wanted to write. Needed to write.
And needed the laugh that great comedy provides.
Thank you Bill Murray!
Bill gives freaks like me hope 🙂
Great line: “And you do your job. Same as previous. And the next day. Will be a carbon copy.”
I honor everyone who has a “mundane” job. The world often can’t function unless someone does their job, e.g., if I stay in a hotel, somebody has to clean the toilet.
Martin Luther King, Jr. had a great quote about a street sweeper sweeping for the glory of God (or something like that). It definitely involves sweeping 🙂 But it’s a really powerful sentiment about the importance of “mundane” jobs. Thanks Chris! –Paul
