Eagerly Awaiting "Julie & Julia"

In the spirit of getting out of my routine (ha, sneaking the theme in), I have been going to more movies recently. I have seen "The Proposal" (love Sandra Bullock, love Ryan Reynalds - hubba hubba), "Star Trek" (better than I expected), "Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince" (midnight showing on my birthday - very good), "Transformers" (not as good as the first one - which was surprisingly good), and finally "Terminator: Salvation" (not my choice. It wasn't as violent as I expected it to be as far as blood and guts).

The movie I have been WAITING for is "Julie & Julia". I'm not much of a cook, but since I had an opportunity to be in the vacinity of a cooking class a few years ago, I have been fascinated with cooking, chefs, etc. I love to watch cooking shows, but I haven't been brave enough to try any of the recipes yet. I love "Hell's Kitchen" (poor man's "Top Chef" - but I love Gordon Ramsey) and "Kitchen Nightmares" (it is ALWAYS BAD MANAGERS...hmmm). So now, I will get to learn a bit about the queen of American French Cuisine (I admit, until recently, I had always thought Julia Child was French...I haven't seen her since I was a kid and I guess I never bothered to wonder or find out...".

I'm looking forward to a movie that doesn't have a mystery, there are no deaths, no blood, nothing blows up, no intense action. This is it! I'm thinking about going on Opening Day...that would definitely be a break in my boring routine. Maybe I can take my journal and do some wrecking... hee hee.

  1. I am so looking forward to this too!! But then again, I'd watch Meryl Streep read a phone book.
