For the six of you who are not sick of me yet...

... here's your chance to finally get it done.

I am going to be here Monday evening:

From Blogger to Author:How Bloggers Get Book Deals, and What This Means for Publishing. A mediabistro. panel discussion with editors, agents, and writers.

Monday, December 11, 7-9 pm
$20 ($15 for members); $5 more at the door
Small Press Center, 20 West 44th Street
New York, NY 10036

I can't imagine why any of you would want to spend an evening listening to bloggers talk about themselves - don't you get enough of that here? - but maybe you want to come heckle me or something....

I was going to be able to dangle the Jessica Cutler bone (embedding!!!), but sadly that train left the station. My google-mad husband actually found a little related cyber dust-up... (Would you look at my bad-ass embedding self?!!)

sorry to tell you this, but my computer can't find whatever it was you embedded for the phrase "cyber dust up".

I just bought your book, and I can't put it down...which is a large feat being a mom of 3 very young children. I think it is fantastic that you really do blog daily... I thought it was all a fictional story until I looked it up on the internet. Congratulations on your success, you are definately an inspiration to all.

Anyway, sorry to tell you *this* but that's not embedding... that's linking. Embed means like, to put a video to play directly from your page... but nice try :)

Good Morning,

I am not sure that I am reaching the correct Julie Powell, but I am hoping that you're the one who wrote "File of Dreams" in the NYT Magazine. If not, please feel free to delete this comment with my apologies.

If you are, I just wanted to thank you for a well written article that brought my Mom and I to tears (good tears & laughter!). My Mother has been clipping recipes since she was in college and there are piles and piles around her house. You can't help but giggle when you realize that other people have some of the same quirky habits that you do! I was flying back home from La Guardia and had to call her to read it to her! The article was so touching in such a profound way... It plucked our heartstrings and made the both of us smile.

Thanks and best of luck,

Thanks so much for your wonderful book. I am the least adventurous eater on the planet so, I spent the majority of the book in awe, and slightly sick to my stomach, that you would even eat what you cooked. Just so you know, the Glenmoor Gals Literary Guild of Oxford, MI will be reading Julie & Julia for our April book club. It's my pick. (Yes, I am appalled by the "Gals" but it was the name before I joined. I hate being a "Gal"). Anyway, I was compelled to say thanks.

I just received your book as a Christmas present from my friend and in the past 48 hours, I have finished it and read it multiple times. My name is Julia and my friend who gave it to me is also named Julia; as a result I have taken to confusing my family about the origins of my Julie and Julia book.
I have always been a "renegade foodie", my favorite TV shows include Paula, Giada, and Rachel. I know that you probably have people tell you this all the time, but I really loved this book. I have always thought of cooking as a hobby, but after finishing your book I have decided to begin cooking classes that I always wanted to take and see if I can continue in the field of cooking.
My favorite books have the Shopaholic series, but now I think that that title belongs to this book. I hope that there are more books coming soon.
Thanks for sharing your experience with us!

Hello -

I just finished the book and loved it../am promptly buying copies for some others. A few things:

1) My mom passed away a few years ago and I inherited her '61 editions of MtAoFC 1&2. I do love to cook but have been intimidated (or maybe just lazy) by the lengthy directions. With your book in hand I am now steeled to stop taking myself so seriously and make something aux something with butter.
2) I also recently read "My Life in France" by JC through her grandnephew. The impression it left me with is that as talented and stalwart as she clearly was, she also took herself WAY too seriously, and in several cases throughout the book references her work as though it were OSS top classified material. The point? If she was "a pill" about your project it was more likely her own hangupsthan a reflection on you.
3) I mourned for months when Buffy went off the air (though the finale when she does a lemming off of the construction beam to save Dawn was better than the actual finale). People said "Get over it! Watch Veronic Mars!" I tried but it was too soon to date. I've since moved on with the help of Heroes. Are you watching? Really fabulous.
4) Don't know if this part of your book was true but I too have PCOS and now have a beautiful baby boy to go with my 5 o'clock shadow. I did one round of their drugs and knew it wasn't for me and so went the acupuncture route instead. Good luck! - Jen T.

Hi Julie. Yes, I'm a dork, but here goes: I'm 35, I've been married to my husband (who I've known since high school) for 12 years, we have no kids (not for lack of trying) and we're kind of neighbors (we live in Greenpoint, just across the creek from you, kind of like Dawson and, Dawson's Creek is my Buffy), I own a bookstore and have had your book on my stack to read since it first came out. I finally picked it up and read it this week and it's great, as I knew it would be. I think we should be best friends, not in a stalker way but a legitimate "I think we should be best friends" sort of way. I'm moving my bookstore from Long Island to Williamsburg in a month or two, so come say hi if you're in the neighborhood. It's called WORD. We'll do a signing when your next book comes out. If you feel like it, you can email me directly through my current bookstore site which is I wouldn't want all your loyal bloggers to be jealous over our new best friendship. Happy New Year!

I am discovering you late in the game, as I am still not terribly sure what a blog is. One of my book club friends picked your book up at the library and told me I had to read it, so, one Amazon package later, here I am. This was my favorite book I have read in a long time. I was lying in the bath last night(yes, I have an actual house with good plumbing but there's the payoff of nary a lobster in sight and the only marrow bone to be found is still on hoof)finishing it up while my hubby watched the kids. I had to get online this morning to look you up. What I loved most about your book was just how much like me you are. I once had a live-in boyfriend who wouldn't eat anything that he decided I cooked with "bile". Hell, everyone can't be perky like Rachel Ray. I figure if a meal doesn't have a few "shits" and "goddamn it's" thrown in during the cooking, it ain't worth eating!

Hey, you've written a really excellent book; I love books about food and cooking and more food...... and yours is both damned well-written and fun and inspiring.
I too was given your book for Christmas by a friend who always manages to find food books for me. You've inspired me to get hold of MtAoFC (which may not be that easy in Inner London, but there's always good old Amazon) and read it, even if I never cook from it.
I don't know if you could feel equally inspired by another such project, but it'd be good to read more from you, so I hope you do.

I am reading your book and it makes me laugh and hungry at the same time. My 14 year old daughter ate a whole bowl of the potato soup thingy you mention at the beginning which is saying something because lately she doesnt eat much unless it has chocolate in it or ice cream.

I just finished your book today. I started it four days ago and I DON'T read books in four days. Especially ones that don't include vampire homoeroticism (maybe something to consider for next time). I'm not disappointed by your overuse of the word "fuck" as much as your overuse of the word "recalcitrant" (your ability to write above a sixth grade level makes me kunfewzd and all hurty in the brain area). I am not a foodie, but I occasionally entertain of running away to become a pastry chef. Thank you for writing your reminds me I should do something with my life besides piss and moan about it.

Blogger zombie*grrl said...

Hi Julie,
My mom bought me your book for Christmas 2005 and I'm only just now reading it. I had no idea it would be so funny and entertaining. My mom was always a big Julia Child fan, whereas I usually limit my kitchen activities to getting out a bottle of ketchup. I'm definitely not a "foodie" and that sounds incredibly gay to me even if I was.

So, my mom kept telling me what a good book it was, and how her heart just broke for you with all that work and something about you not even getting to meet Julia. I was all, mm-hmm, but now I'm actually considering trying something with chicken, butter, and cream. I'm sure I can't top KFC but I'm willing to give it a shot. I'm actually a pretty good cook, I just don't like to do it. I like to leave all that to 16-yr-olds with hairnets.

Can't wait to finish the book. I got curious what you were up to nowadays and came looking on the internet. I only wish I had known long ago, so I could have gotten a shout-out in your book as a loyal bleader.

BTW, I'm 35, not quite the size 2 I used to be, have a mouth like a sailor who drives big rigs in his spare time, and I've been with my husband since I was 17. It's like we're twins! Except I wouldn't live in New York if you paid me.

When you google “paraphrase for me”, you get surprisingly few trustworthy companies. Some offer a limited range of services, while others openly use plagiarism rewriter software instead of professional writers. Here you get top-notch paraphrasing help with your essays, research and term papers. The writers easily deal with all types of assignments. Even a dissertation can be professionally rewritten without a trace of its original structure and language.

Kibin is a multifunctional writing platform for students, bloggers and others who may want to get some sample for brainstorming or simply proofread their essay. Also, the site has some thesis builder that helps to come up with it. Although it is made in the way of step by step application, it cannot be used as a real guide for something bigger than 2-3 pages. Kibin is the absolutely legit site as it does not provide any writing services except editing. The prices for editing are too high, but the sample data-base is extremely useful. Besides, a lot of people say that there is only grammar/spelling check available and no other suggestions are possible. The support agents work only via email and provide answers very slow.
