D-Day

This is it. Official book launch. I'll be at the KGB Bar tonight to read; come see! And I'll be on Good Morning America tomorrow morning.

I'm swallowing pills and drinking Diet Pepsi. I'm sure it'll all turn out fine.

Good Luck to you! I do admire that you are taking a bit of a "risk" with the second book...it's real easy in this business to sink into "giving the same" because it's expected.

When you have time to sit down and write that fiction book, you will be so excited - it's the best thing ever...have fun with it!

I just read your article on Organic farming and found most of it not worth my time since you don't really seem to understand the actual point of eating organically; you just bemoan its expense.

I am really confused by how you find farmer's markets so elitist. I don't understand your problem with them when you are actually supporting local farmers that cultivate awesome produce. Seems like the least elitist thing in the world to support your local farmers.

You mentioned Sarah Waters but did not mention her idea of an edible schoolyard, which is a way of getting disadvantaged youth to eat more organically and healthfully, something that, as a teacher, I know our children desperately need.

I think that I could go on about that part of the article, but you're pretty set in your beliefs, so instead I will address the end of your article. What I REALLY object to is the way you conflated a nationality with poverty. Why did that family shopping at Western Beef have to be Honduran? Do you only see Hondurans as an impoverished people? What a great elitist stereotype, just as you were crowing over how you are "above" the elitism of people like Sarah Waters! So edgy! It's pretty damn ignorant of you, but then again, I am not surprised, as you seem to be ignorant on quite a range of subjects and, just by the luck of having a blog with an interesting, quirky device that was turned into a movie in which you were played by an actress with more charm in her pinky than you have in your entire body, you are being asked to give your opinion on some of them, as if you are an expert. The least you can do is research what you are talking about before you write about it so you don't look like an ass. And, yes, avoid nasty stereotypes.

Also, last time I checked, "I was supposed to degrease the sauce, but fuck it" was not the epitome of fine dining, so I can't take your sermonizing about fine dining vs. fine shopping.

P.S. Augusten Burroughs can churn out a book every two years because he's actually a good writer, better, it may be said, than you will ever be.

You are an inspiration to us all (well, spparently everyone but "J." But i think it's obvious that's what eating organic does to a person) I think you're fabulous. Look at where you've come from and look at where you are. You're living your dream, and it's so awesome to know that dreams do come true!

Hey, hope all goes well for you today. Although I have only now just watched Julie&Julia, at the time it came out in theatres a local artist where I'm from (St. John's, Newfoundland) came out with a new album which had a track on it called "Julia," and I always thought it was a shame that it was to late to be used on the soundtrack. It's such a beautiful song, and after watching the movie today for the first time (fabulous, tears of joy - evoking story, by the way) I am even more convinced that it would have been a great match. Alas, such is the timing of life...Anyways, I thought I would share it with you and your readers all the same. The artist's name is Amelia Curran...enjoy :)
p.s. good luck in all your future endeavors, so many of us harbour that incurable longing to be published someday, so its nice to see a success story like yours :)

Hello. I'm a Brazilian girl and I've just arrived home from the cinema. I was looking for some interesting movie to watch and guess what... "Julie & Julia" was the perfect end for my "surviving retreat". I still don't know why I started to write to you. I imagine if you really read all these comments...
Well, all I now is that I'm anxious to start reading your blog and to finish something important or something that can become important.
If you ever thought what you were doing at that time was some unimportant (does this word exist?) thing I guess you know now that you can change people's life.
Thanks for changing mine today.
I hope I can be a better person.

KGB Reading Review One Artist, One Idealogue:
Julie's reading last night was great. I read her first book and enjoyed it despite having little interest in all this food whatever it is, cultism, I guess. Born of blogging as her career is, it wouldn't work if she wasn't such a gifted writer. Last night's descriptions of knifework and butchery were quite engaging. The other reader presented her case against the meat industry with such smugness and self absorption that I ended up on the side of the meat industry she was attacked. If you have to invoke age, race and physical appearance attacks, how lame. So scorecard for KGB, Julie, Excellent, Diet for a Hot Planet Lady, Bad Enough to send this vegetarian to McDonalds.

Hi Julie,
I will have to wake up early to see you on Good Morning America!! I saw the movie tonight after my best friend and I were walking back to the car and I asked her if she could imagine cooking 500+ recipes in 365 days. Her answer was no not and have a life and keep a job. Then she goes on to say it would be like me trying to go to work every day, spending time with my husband, cooking, cleaning, taking care of the 2 dogs,cat,turtle,fish,snake. I laughed and said Ha Ha I couldn't do it I have a blog that i don't even have anything written on. Now I am at home thinking and why couldn't I do it? hmmmm. Food for thought, I think I will let that thought simmer for a bit. Thank you Julie I am feeling motivated!

This is a long shot Julie... I don't suppose you will write back, but I just watched the movie online and though I'm not a big cook like Julia, I do enjoy fresh fun movies. I often watch old Julia shows on PBS. Especially the ones with Jacque.

Anyway, I write a blog too. Very different from yours though! I set it up in 13 weekly columns which I've had trouble keeping up! I write about life observations and inspirational, sometimes funny things.

I too, have a job that is going nowhere but I've always had a passion for writing and sharing what I know. I speak for a living as a Historical Presenter (re-enactor) at THE HENRY FORD MUSEUM, in Dearborn, Michigan. I hardly make enough money to live anywhere really decent too!

Anyway, blogging changed m life too! Several months ago, two special guests came to hear me speak. After my presentation, they both stood and stared at me. They asked me personal questions about WHO I AM? They seemed to be taken with the way I speak and my thoughts about things. Those two suggested I start a blog to share. When I asked what it was that I should write about the man said, "Write the way that you speak.". They had to tell me what a blog was and how to set it up! DIDN'T KNOW.
See, for years, I asked the same question, that you did, that many of us ask,...WHAT CAN I DO? Writing is a passion, just as sharing and observing life, is for me. But I don't get paid to do and though people obviously are reading it (according to my stats counter) I only have 1 follower and that is my son. Thank you for being you. I hope you read this and please check out my blog @ www.meettamartin.blogspot.com I'd be honored if yo did.
Maybe, just maybe, I'll have 2 followers. LOL! Sincerely, Meetta Martin

Now... i am finishing to see your movie over my laptop ( 3:42am )
That was amazing. I also cry. But i am feeling really exited because i felt the conection between Julie & you.
Its almost like when my fancy and lovely mother, cooks every day to have the most exiting lunch time.

Mom had write a book about her experiences cooking but she wont publish it. She rather share it with the ladys of her family. ( i wish could share it with my future wife).
It was a pleasure, to write you.
I hope meet you and introduce to you my lovely mom some day.
Best regards,

frankly i am confused. Your movie, as i am sure you call it was lying around the house do to a substitute librarian mother and though i don't have the worlds greatest appreciation for her taste in movies i have been rather bored and sleepless over break. The point i am trying to get to is i watched it, decided i should probably find your blog because how movies ruin books; instead a i come across this which sounds like one of my friends in high school who some how made it famous for god knows what, definitely not there ability to write and went to town.
Higher a publicist if you need publicity. At first from the movie i was saddened by Julia's lack of expectancy of you but now through further reading i discover it is not a generational gap or a problem that you use words like fuck and crap in your blog, it is simply that the character of your writing comes off haphazard and completely unrefined. You have been as successful as you are simply because most americans are a factor of the lowest common denominator and appreciate any Marly and Me crap you throw at them.
This is meant as nothing more than a review and the form of commentary in internet 2.0

I saw your movie or the movie about your journey through Julia Child's cookbook. It was inspiring and it touched me. I am a senior in high school fixing to enter into college. I'm hoping to major in English and from there do something with food.Witht he way the economy is and has been it just gives me hope that some how when i get out of college i'll figure some way to work things out eventually.
