The wisdom of Julie and Julia



For those of you who haven't seen the film I thought I'd sum up what resonated for me:

1. Fearlessness has its own momentum.

2. It's okay to hate your friends because you're jealous of them, and to hate yourself for feeling that way.

3. Blogging demands discipline, but Julie Powell took that discipline to the next level in that she knew her 524 recipes would surely include some challenging and unappetizing projects (aspics, ewww). (Gotta respect that.)

4. Poaching an egg is hard. I'm glad someone else has spoken out!

Now go see the movie, if you haven't already. And once you have, let me know if you found Julie's husband's eating habits (as portrayed by Chris Messina) to be as distracting as I did — Seriously, who eats like that?

ETA: I also think the movie makes Queens look too nice. ;-)

Best,
