Well, I never finished the book Julie and Julia because I thought Julie was wound a tad too tight for me to get through the book. However, I kept the movie on my Netflix and on Wednesday afternoon, I had a little Chick flick fest with Julie and Julia and the Proposal. My dear, sweet husband is a patient guy who would have watched the movies, but the Bruins are back on and I know he enjoys the games, so I watch my chick flicks on my afternoons off. Sometimes my youngest son watches and makes comments, and it's turned into a nice time together.
Okay, so back to the movie, can I just say that I love Meryl Streep? She was my favorite part of the movie and I do have a sixth degree of separation to Julia Child. My dad once fixed one of her appliances, met her and even asked her if she had seen the skit on SNL that that they had done on her. During the movie, I thought of that story and if Meryl Streep was true to Julia, then I could see her having that conversation with my Dad. The blogging aspect of Julia was too much for me, only because I know that I have less than 7 regular readers and that's okay. I am not about to throw a nutty, because I think I have let "my readers" down if I don't blog every day or week. Blogging for me is just the opportunity to write creatively without writing for a grade. It's my voice among many. But poor Julia made blogging seem painful as she set a goal and wrote about it daily. I wonder though, if she had done the blog nine years later, would it have become a book and a movie? Or did she just know the right people in New York to get it noticed?
And yes, I enjoyed The Proposal. Betty White and Sandra Bullock are fun to watch and it was entertaining. Any other good suggestions for movies?
