This is a great phrase that QPO used.  Any suggestions what it does, or more interesting, should mean?

How about:
'I work for the weather department.'

Any other neat phrases that we can 'interpret' ?

I love that movie.  Can't help myself from watching it every time it's on.  He lived the day over and over again, trying hard to get it right and only succeeding when he let it go.  Very dance like.  So if you're living ground hog day you're either experiencing a day exactly like the day before or it could be you're living in fear of seeing your shadow.  The second is more likely if you have a name like Wiarton Willie, Punxsutawney Phil or Fred.

so true. He was not a nice person and had to learn humility by being stuck in his surreal world made him take notice of those around him and his situation. I am sure we can all take heed of that.

Its one of my favourite movies too; though the ending is too schmaltzy for words.

I didn't want to use that term as it has other connotations - including free-for-all pleasure.  but I did want to allude to bacchus (even if I dropped a c) cause he was the god of wine, and alchol by extension....

Sounds similar to that phrase (as might be said to me) As a dancer he's a great computer programmer.   Grin
