Friday's Top Ten

In honor of Groundhog Day tomorrow, February 2 . . .

The top ten things The Groundhog doesn't want you to know:

10. He was the silent partner for the movie Groundhog Day

  9. His kids call him Pop Hog

  8. He's a Ninja

  7. He's been a special adviser to presidents

  6. And to James Bond

  5. He deposited groundhog poop on the moon

  4. He owns the warehouse for all official Groundhog gear

  3. He created the secret recipe for Jezebel's Special Punch

  2. If you don't know who Jezebel is, visit here

And the #1 thing The Groundhog doesn't want you to know:

  1. He likes pizza and beer!


I'm going to be out of pocket for most of the day, and maybe for part of the day tomorrow. I'll be around, but most likely won't have time to do more than glance at the computer. I will do my best to respond and to get to your blogs over the weekend. Live-In Handyman has a project, and he does rank pretty high on my scale, you know :)

Cute. I don't believe they have ground hog day here in Mexico. But I'll watch the morning news and see if they do. Have a great 'constructive' weekend with handyman.;)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

He's a Ninja!
Knew there was a reason I didn't drink the punch when I visited Jezebel.
And pizza and beer? That's why he's a chubby little thing.

Clarissa Draper said...

Groundhog Day is one of my favourite movies. Who wouldn't want to have unlimited time to get good at stuff before moving on.

Manzanita said...

I didn't know about the pizza and beer but I wouldn't put anything past a groundhog. This is my favorite Holiday.
Love to Carol

L.G. Smith said...

I guess reason number one explains that beer belly of his. :D

Happy Friday!

Yvonnes Poetry Corner said...

Loved the one saying he was a Ninja made me think of Alex, I wonder why?

Yvonne.

Karen Jones Gowen said...

I just can't believe it's February already. Stupid ground hog.

Medeia Sharif said...

I had no idea about #5. Was he a stowaway on one of the missions?

Summer Ross said...

Of course he advised James Bond!
Great top ten.

Linda Kage said...

I actually knew none of that about Mr. Groundhog. HA! Fun list.

Linda G. said...

But doesn't EVERYBODY like pizza and beer???

J.L. Campbell said...

I don't think I ever got the concept of groundhog day. Maybe I should find out what it's about? : )

mybabyjohn/Delores said...

The groundhog doesn't want you to know he's the product of a 'mixed masrriage'. His dad was a real rat.

LR said...

Love "Pop Hog" heehee.

Have a great weekend, Carol.

Johanna Garth said...

If he's anything like the rodents living in my house, he deposits poop everywhere he goes!

LD Masterson said...

Oh heck, Carol. Everyone knows he like pizza and beer. But can you tell us his favorite toppings?

Teresa Coltrin said...

And he's a cutey patooty.

Laura Eno said...

Haha! Jezebel thinks he's a blowhard. She hired him as an assistant once but fired him in less than a day because he drank all the profits.
Have a great weekend!

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

The only thing I know about Groundhog Day is that it was a movie........lol

Carol Kilgore said...

Hey, Guys!

I'm back. I'm zonked. I'll be here and at your blogs Saturday and Sunday - as far as I know now.

Hope you all had an awesome Friday!

Happy Weekend :)

Shelley Munro said...

This groundhog has hidden talents!

michelle said...

I remember a little about that movie... (surprising because I don't watch too many movies)... with the emphasis on "little" LOL

Raquel.Somatra said...

Sounds like the groundhog and I have a lot in common!
Well, regarding reason #1, at least. :) Hope you have a lovely weekend!

Carol Kilgore said...

Em-Musing - Yesterday was exhausting. But rewarding. I slept 10 hours!

Alex - Maybe you're cousins?!?!

Clarissa - And Bill Murray was perfect in the part.

Manzanita - He's quite secretive about the pizza and beer :) Hugs back!

Luanne - Exactly.

Morgan said...

LOL! Love it, Carol! :D

Carol Kilgore said...

Yvonne - LOL! I can't imagine why you thought that :)

Karen - I know! Where did January go?

Medeia - I'm sworn to secrecy.

Summer - Of course :)

Linda K - Mr. G is an enigma.

Carol Kilgore said...

Linda G - That's what I thought. Apparently it's not the case in the general groundhog community.

Joy - If the Official Groundhog sees his shadow, we're supposed to have six more weeks of winter. If he doesn't, it will be an early spring. According to legend, of course.

Delores - LOVE it! (and just wait until I see him again...)

LR - Thanks! You, too :)

Johanna - Ah. I thought he had ADD, the way he kept running off and coming back.

CATachresis said...

Groundhog day is one of my favourite films!!!

Stephen Tremp said...

Pizza and beer? My kind of ground hog!

Ciara said...

I need to crawl out of my editing cave. I completely missed Ground Hog day. LOL

Carol Kilgore said...

LD - Pineapple and black olives.

Teresa - He says he WUVS you :)

Laura - That sounds like the Groundhog I know.

Jo-Anne - The Groundhog is our "official" forecaster of an early or late spring. Sometimes he gets it right :)

Shelley - Very hidden, LOL!

Carol Kilgore said...

Michelle - Groundhog says that's OK :)

Raquel - LOL! Hope your weekend's going great, too :)

Morgan - Thanks!

CATachresis - Cool :)

Stephen - Fist pump!

Kelly-Writer Girl said...

I must applaud the absence of anything zombie on your list!!!
Very cute- from someone who doesn't care how accurate the little bugger is...we need to enjoy traditions from time to time without being too serious!

Carol Kilgore said...

Julie - Hope your weekend is great, too.

Old Kitty - Pop Hog likes your style :)

Ciara - Uh-oh.

Carol Kilgore said...

Kelly - Not too much into zombies - maybe my brain's not tasty enough for them :)

Lynda R Young said...

I'm curious why the groundhog doesn't want us to know he likes pizza and beer.

Carol Kilgore said...

Lynda - He said he can't say. It's need-to-know only. I think he's putting me on.

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Gee, and I always thought he drank chianti with his pizza...

Fun post!

Carol Kilgore said...

Susan - I heard that rumor, too, but he denied it.

Melissa said...

LOL - too funny!
I'm so behind...but I'm here. ;)

Carol Kilgore said...

Fear not, Melissa. You're not the only one behind :)
