The old Ball-n-Chain makes good...

Here's my Eric on the last 1/8 mile of the Beaujolais Marathon. Doesn't he look good? Extra points for anyone who can make out through my shoddy filmmaking skills the TV show he is quoting from as he runs past....

(Promise, I'll learn embedding one day....)


Okay, so my cinematography leaves pretty much everything to be desired, and you all probably couldn't make out what Eric was shouting. So I'm going to give you a hint. What he said was "No power in the verse can stop me..." So that should make the cultural reference appallingly clear.

I heard a lot of supportive woo-hooing but no hint at a cultural reference.

Julie, I'm in the middle of your book right now. Love it. My boyfriend's mom gave it to me last week when I shared the exciting news that I just signed with a literary agency for my contemporary casserole cookbook (better title, and hopefully a publishing contract, to come).

Embedding is super easy, by the way (it took me a while to figure out how easy it was, though):

1. Just highlight the text you want to make into a link, then click that little globe, figure-8, chain looking icon that should appear above the box you're typing in (depending on your browser, of course... it works in firefox, not as easy to find in safari).

2. THEN, a little box will pop up and in that box is where you paste the link (make sure you don't double up on the https).

3. Click "OK" and if you did everything correctly, it should work.

But here's a linkable one for anyone who wants to click it for shits & giggles.

I loved the book.
I had a Julia Child moment a long time ago, with her Pate de canard en Croute.

Argh! You are a demon cooking and writing goddess! I just spent the last day and a half reading your book nonstop (physically couldn't put it down -- too good). I skipped my belly dancing class and studying for my law school exams (reading about cooking WAY more fulfilling than studying for law anything).
You're fabulous. I laughed outloud and grimaced in horror (poor lobsters. And cat stuck in the ceiling -- did he ever come down?)
Please, please, don't publish anything else in the next year and a half or else I shall not graduate law school, but just sit around reading your novels and telling my friends they should distract themselves, too!

I think it's great that you've branched out -- it's cool to get to see the people I've read about. Loved your book, btw, and gave it to a few others as gifts. I honestly had a hard time putting it down.

Heh. If I'm correct in my Serenity-spotting, Eric will be aiming to misbehave at the end of the race, no?

Too much Whedon is never enough.

Actually, the quote is from the Firefly episode "War Stories" in which Mal and Wash are captured by Nishka and tortured. River says it after she aces some of Nishka's goons without even looking. I don't recall them saying it in Serenity, although she does also open a can of space ninja woop-ass on some Reavers.

Okay, the Captain has turned on the "That's Enough Geekery" sign now so I'll just go back to my seat.

Julie...I just finished your book and I loved it. I am also a native Texan, I also have a cooking fetish, and I also have PCOS. I could identify with what you wrote on so many levels. I look forward to reading more from you!
