Today is my me day.
I have been told by multitudes of friends :
"You blog, don't you? You REALLY have to see this movie!"
Well, whilst I may blog, I sure as hell ain't no cook! So, it is with trepidition I sat down to watch this DVD. I comfort-padded with a plate of crispy bacon and buttery toast, and a copy of this week's TV Week just in case this, as I suspected, really wasn't my thing.
After a slow start (why in hell would you put yourself through the Cobb Salad lunches with that bunch of cows, old friends or not old friends), I began to enjoy. Especially the little temper tanty meltdowns - right up my alley!
The Julia french scenes captured my imagination, and I sank into the couch, glass of coke in hand (philistine that I am) to laugh, cry and simply Julie/Julia experience.
Slowly, my allegiance began to slide a little more to Julie and a little less to Julia until an even balance surfaced. And I then understood why this blog became a book which became a movie.
Oh, and I will make a little confession. It has not finished yet. I paused the movie and went in and stole my laptop. So I am sitting here blogging whilst watching a movie about blogging.
And where in hell are my phone calls from editors, literary agents and movie producers? Hmmm?
