Mama never told me there'd be days like this...

... but to be fair, I wouldn't have believed her if she had.

You know you're in a strange place when you start off your morning with a hug from and conversation about the current politics of high heels with Meryl Streep dressed as Julia Child and end it with a thorough, slightly drunken rewatching of the Battlestar Galactica miniseries, with a heaping helping of R train riding to get from the 34th street DMV to the Marshal's office in Bay Ridge, back up to the impoundment lot in East Williamsburg in the middle.

The glamour to drudgery ratio is perplexing.

Have you heard Ms. Streep's version of Ms. Child's warble yet? If you have, please describe your impressions. I can hardly wait for this movie just to hear her rendition of Julia's voice.

Hi Julie, my name is Sacred Suzie and I just finished writing my review of your book on my blog. I figured if there was anyone in the world who wouldn't mind a pagan/witchy writer talking about your fantastic book, it would be you. Congrats on the movie and all your well-deserved success. Your book rocked my world.

I have a 35 year old daughter. She's one of my heroines and so are you. Loved Julie and Julia and I think the film and your success are well-justified. You don't need to feel bad about anything. My own culinary memoir has just been published
Keep up the great work. The world needs your honesty and irreverence.

hey Julie! Our book club is just finishing up your book and we plan to have a little JC pot luck to celebrate. Any suggestions on what to cook?
I am excited to see the movie!

Julie, this is Libby's aunt, Susan. Nice to meet you last weekend (albeit briefly) at Lib's party. The day before the party, she'd given me a copy of your book. Having now read it, I think it's ironically funny that we met at the precise instant I was giving that computer programmer the schtick about how we Southern ladies never use the F-word. Great book!

Hey Julie, et. al.
I have some photos of Meryl filming a scene from Julie & Julia on my blog. By random chance, they were filming around the corner from where we were staying.

I thought I was only person who watched reruns of Battlestar Galatica. We just finished watching all of them earlier this year and we're starting over. (Much to my husband's chagrin.)

In a disclosure moment, I am such a fan that back in 2003, I tried to hire Richard Hatch to come to my company to give a presentation as a motivational speaker. I'm not making this up. He really does this, or he used to. My company wouldn't do it, though.
