STAN: Oh, no, it’s Groundhog Day! Oh, no, it’s Groundhog Day! 
HARRIETT: Stan, why are you repeating everything over and over again.
STAN: I can’t help it. I can’t help it. 
HARRIETT: Why not?
STAN:  It’s Groundhog Day!  It’s Groundhog Day! 

HARRIETT STOPS FOR A SECOND AND TRIES TO STUDY THE SITUATION. BUT THERE’S REALLY NO STUDYING NECESSARY WHEN THE SUBJECT IS STAN. SOMETIMES HE’S JUST AN IDIOT.

HARRIETT: So?
STAN: So, on Groundhog Day, you repeat everything you say. You know, like in that Bill Murray movie! So, on Groundhog Day, you repeat everything you say. You know, like in…
HARRIETT: …that Bill Murray movie? I know. But you’ve got it all wrong, Stan. On Groundhog Day you repeat the day, not what you say.
STAN: Oh? Really?(PAUSE) Hey, I did it! I didn’t repeat it.

STAN CHECKS HIMSELF IN A MIRROR TO MAKE SURE HIS LIPS AREN’T MOVING. THEY AREN’T.

HARRIETT: And they say you can’t teach old idiots new tricks.
STAN: Who says that?
HARRIETT: I just did.
STAN: Oh, right. (STAN THINKS TO HIMSELF.) 

HARRIETT: So, we might as well make the best of it.
STAN: Whadd’ya mean.?
HARRIETT: You know, when Jack arrives at the blog, we’ll take a snooze.
STAN:  Huh?
HARRIETT: We’ll saw some logs.
STAN: We will?
HARRIETT: We’ll catch some Zs.
STAN: Catch Zs? How would you catch a Z?
HARRIETT: No, Stan! We’ll-take-a-nap! (HARRIETT SAYS THE WORDS ONE-AT-A-TIME HOPING STAN WILL UNDERSTAND.)
STAN:  Take a nap. Is it nap time? Where are my Dr. Dentons.
HARRIETT: Stan! We’ll sleep!
STAN: We’ll sleep?
HARRIETT: Together!
STAN:  Together? We’ll sleep together? Oh, we’ll sleep together! Why didn’t you say that?
HARRIETT: You know Stan, I’m only doing it because you’re not real. That an….
STAN: Yeah, I know. And I’m only doing it because you’re the most beautiful girl on the blog.
HARRIETT: Really? Thanks. Wait, I think I hear his Master’s Voice?
STAN: RCA?
HARRIETT: No, Stan, Jack!
STAN: I have one question, Harriett. Will everything we do today, Groundhog Day, will we do it all again tomorrow?
HARRIETT: Yup.
STAN: C’mon Harriett! Let’s get outta here! I think I’m gonna set a world’s record!

 STAN GRABS HARRIETT’S HAND AND AS QUICKLY AS IS HUMANLY POSSIBLE, HE STARTS TO PULLS HER OFF THE BLOG.

HOWEVER. JUST BEFORE THEY JUMP OFF THE BLOG AND INTO, WELL, BED, HARRIETT REALIZES JACK HASN’T SHOWN UP. SO IF SHE AND STAN LEAVE THE BLOG, ALL THE READERS WILL SEE IS A BIG WHITE SPACE.

HARRIETT: Quick Stan, thrown up a YouTube trailer of Groundhog Day.

They get it up just in time.


Hey, Readers. Welcome to the Groundhog Day edition of 10 Minutes of Brilliance. It’s Pete and Repeat’s favorite day! Since whatever I say here will be repeated over and over again for 42 days (if we strictly follow the movie script), I’m gonna mention one or two things today, then get the Hell out of here.

First up, some interesting quotes from one of the world’s best salesman. Next, a cool game you can play. An interactive game called Stickman where a stick figure you draw comes to life.. Finally, we’ll close with some music. Any music you want, from The Ink Spots in the 1940s to Smash Mouth, a group that was popular in 1999. Let’s start with the the quotes.

Introducing Famous Quotes from Josh Gitomer’s famous brother, Jeffrey. None of which mention Groundhog Day.

Jeffrey Gitomer is a writer, speaker and motivator and the author of The New York Times best sellers, The Sales Bible, The Little Red Book of Selling, The Little Black Book of Connections, and the book these quotes are from, The Little Golden Book of YES! Attitude. All of these books By Josh’s brother Jeffrey and many others books have been Number One on Amazon.com.

As long as we have to repeat this for 42 days, we might as well repeat something useful.. Here are 10 quotes from Josh Gitomer’s brother, Jeffrey:

1. Change your input to change your attitude. If you seek a positive mind and a positive attitude, you MUST expose yourself to positive information and hang around positive people. If you want to achieve positive, you have to surround yourself with it and live with it.

 

2. You will get whatever you want if you help enough people get whatever they want. A quote that many claim to have said. It doesn’t matter who said it – just live it. Don’t dwell on whine about the problem; concentrate on the solution. Resolve how you can; don’t lament why you can’t.

 

3. Forgive and go forward. Grudge blocks positive. Until you clear the past, you are destined to repeat it. This is Jack, not Jeffrey. That last quote sounds a little Groundhog Day to me!)

 

4. What is the picture you have of yourself? That is what you will become. Spend 15 minutes a day focusing on a positive picture.

 

5. Failure is an event, not a person. Think of failure as “it,” not “me.”

 

6. It’s not what happens to you; it’s what you do with what happens to you. Sound familiar? Attitude manifests itself in your RESPONSE to events.

 

7. Every obstacle presents an opportunity, if you’re looking for it. “Revel” and “lament” are choices. Your choices.

 

8. Hard work makes luck. Nothing affects positive circumstance and results more than hard work.

 

9. How many of your problems are cured with ten grand? (A question a famous father [my dad] once asked me as I lamented my problems.) If money makes your problems go away, attitude can make them go away as well.

 

10. It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it. The tone of your verbiage determines the atmosphere of your environment.

 

stickmanAnd now for our Second Act, we present Stickman.

Once you click on the link below, just put your cursor on the “drawing” space and click and drag a line. You can draw as many lines as you want. You can even erase and start over again. When you’re done, you’ll be amazed at how animated Stickman can be. But if you get taken off the blog, just remember to come back or you’ll our final presentation today, the World’s Great Juke Box, The Jukebox Time Machine. See ya’ back here I hope.

 Special Instructions for anyone over 50: Click anywhere on this purple line to access Stickman!

 

STAN: So… How was I?
HARRIETT: You were great.
STAN: Is that all?
HARRIETT: You were great. You were great. You were great. You were great. You were great. You were great. You were great.
STAN: Is that all?
HARRIETT: You were great?
STAN: Oh, you didn’t have to say that.
HARRIETT: I did. Jack wrote it that way.  Well, it’s time to say goodbye.
STAN: But what about the Magic Juke Box Time Machine? And what about the part where Goldberg asks his Readers to leave a comment?
HARRIETT: Well, I guess, Jack will save the Magic Juke Box, aka The Juke Box time Machine, for another blog. And as far as Jack asking his Readers to leave a comment, why, I guess he’s tired of asking them when they never seem to do it.
STAN: Not lately. 
HARRIETT: Nope. 
STAN: That’s kinda sad.
HARRIETT: Ah, he’ll get over it. 

STAN LOOKS IN FRONT OF HIM AND HE CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT HE SEES.

STAN: Oh no, it’s starting all over again.
