No, tonight I have Julie & Julia on my mind:
I adore Amy Adams. She was delightful in Enchanted.
Meryl Streep is the best!
And Julia, Julia Childs, what a lovely woman.
(Although, I have trouble not imagining Dan Ackroyd spoofing her...oh my :)
I was so dissappointed to miss the movie in theatres.
So, when I saw the book @ Borders, when the movie was not out on DVD yet, I bought it and dug right in.
Julie Powell, the author, is a crass, unsophisticated person.
But, I thought I would try to overlook that. Afterall, I'd heard great things about the movie.
When she proudly described her time with the Joy of S*x book at age 11, I felt sick to my stomach.
This must get better...I hoped.Her political rhetoric was a turn off. And her athiestic cynicism was just plain sad.
But the final straw was when she tells about working in a position to help the families of 9/11 victims. On the first anniversary of the tragic event she makes it clear that she was indignant that she was forced to do, in her words, the "emotional sh*t work" of supporting the bereaved.
It was at the moment...
when I read that sentence...
I "accidentally" dropped the book into the bathtub.
