Worse Than Groundhog Day (The movie was good.)

 "Well, what if there is no tomorrow? There wasn't one today." Phil from Groundhog Day

Does anyone remember the movie Groundhog Day? Bill Murray wakes up every day and is forced to relive the same day over and over and over again. This seems horrible because it seems no matter what happens, nothing he does ever brings the next day upon him. This seems like the worst possible fate a person can imagine, just living the day over and over with nothing changing. 

I don't mean to alarm you, but there is something much worse than this fate and you've probably been experiencing most of your adult life. Every day is exactly the same, but guess what, it's not the same day. This means time keeps passing and you keep living the same day over and over getting older and older. I feel pain for you, I really do. This is because I live the same day over and over.

I wake up and walk for twenty minutes. I walk my dog. I go in to an office and push some papers around. I come home and I eat dinner. I watch TV. I write a blog now. I walk my dog. I shower. I go to sleep. 

There is nothing fulfilling or interesting about my day and I get up and keep reliving it. How do I get through this? I dream of the future. I am working to pay my bills and to hopefully save my money. One day this will not be where I work. Until then, I will do things I like to do such as writing a blog and hope it actually comes to something other than nothing. If it amounts to nothing than at least there is a small amount of joy in something within my day. Right?


  1. But at least you are taking steps to break from the cycle. Nashville here we come!! ; )

  2. Not everyone has the vision in order to find those steps (even if they are the wrong ones). I guess that makes me lucky.

Sutton Foster or Patti Lupone? Both.

"Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I've been very good to broadway."Ethel Merman

When I was 18 years old I went to my first Broadway show, the original broadway production of Mamma Mia. At the time Tina Maddigan was the lead and at the time I thought it was the greatest thing I had ever seen. Truthfully, I still have a special spot for that show and also for the lead. I don't know if this is true for everyone, but I don't see how anyone can truly forget their first show. My actual first show was watching Nutcracker in downtown Jacksonville. My teacher told me to watch for the tree and as it rose from it's spot it was spectacular. This means you will never forget your first show and you will never forget your first broadway spectacular. 

For those of you who liked the movie Mamma Mia (entire city of London), I thought it sucked. 

When I was 19 and I moved to New York, I was officially obsessed with going to the theatre. Usually, I only went to see cele…

Dear White People. Dear Humans. Another skinny white girl talking about racism in America...

Dear fellow white people: please stop using the reference "All Lives Matter". Also stop using the reference "white privilege". One is a defensive action, the other is white guilt trying to force white guilt. Both assume that you understand what it means to be a black citizen in this country. Both are responses to white guilt. I do not know the struggle, and I am not guilty just because I was born white. I've done nothing wrong, I will not apologize for something I had no control over. White privilege was never something I experienced, especially while I grew up in trailer parks...with other poor white people.

How about instead of indignation, we just all support the cause of Black Lives Matter? This will be your way of showing that all lives matter without saying it. When there is a peaceful protest, maybe you should join. There should be blacks, whites, cops, hispanics, everyone joining together. We don't have to be on any one side other than justice. Any p…

Mildred Pierce: Joan vs. Kate

Mildred Pierce was a book written in 1941. A book that was also made in to two separate movies. One in 1945 starring Joan Crawford and the other in 2011 starring Kate Winslet.

Just recently I have watched both films, mostly because I was tired of hearing how amazing Joan Crawford was and how Kate Winslet's version would never come close. After having watched both, I realize what I knew before, these people are really stupid. People who say this without proper knowledge of having seen Kate Winslet are just saying this because you must assume the older version is always better. They are making the assumption Kate Winslet can never compare to Joan Crawford because, well, because it is Joan Crawford and she won an Oscar for this role. I haven't seen any of the other movies that were performances of that category in 1945, but she does seem to have deserved it. 
I love both performances and I loved both film versions. I still like Kate Winslet's version as a whole. These are the…
