Okay, okay… so sue me – I’ve been slacking on the updating of this here blog. But I absolutely HAD to share with you the newest news of the day:
“On Gobbler’s Knob on this fabolous Groundhog Day, February 2nd, 2008, Punxsutawney Phil, the Seer of Seers, Prognosticator of all Prognosticators, Rose and cast 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!’ “
You remember Bill Murray’s movie “Groundhog Day?” Well, I remember watching this movie when I was really young and thinking it was absolutely hilarious. Last night as I was getting in bed, TBS started running the film around midnight, and I watched the first 15 minutes or so. I was right as a kid – that movie is hilarious. Bill Murray is a genius. I imagine that very few people could make waking up to Sonny & Cher ten times in one movie as funny as he does. Put it on your Netflix list if it’s been awhile. Well, actually I’m sure it’s running many times today on TV, so sit down and relax in front of the tube for a bit.
In other news, no- I didn’t have a Know York adventure last weekend, but yes- I will be doing one today. Stay tuned for the report. Also – I was fortunate enough to sample three different top New York restaurants this week for Winter Restaurant Week – more info coming soon. Lastly, I wanted to share my newest plans for this blog… On the suggestion of my friend, Victor, I will be buying the domain of www.ashinthecity.com – so the blog will hopefully be up and running on that website next week or so.
More later. Ciao!
