Do that thing with the banns you're supposed to do...

My friend Paul - those of you who were Julie/Julia Project readers may remember him as the one who remarked that his future wife was probably still in middle school - is doing the deed. I. Am. Shocked. What's more, his lovely fiance is neither in middle school, nor a Cowboys cheerleader, nor a Wiccan. She is, instead, Amanda, a super fantastic woman who will, I'm sure, keep Paul not too disastrously in line.

Their wedding is Saturday, in Austin, and Eric and I are going to help with the celebrations. May be a bit tough, because - and I know, this is truly horrific to contemplate - I'm trying not to drink for two weeks (it's a diet thing, don't worry, I plan to be throwing myself from the wagon as soon as is practicable.) A sober Julie at a wedding might just be one of the omens of the final days, but it's not going to be nearly as tough as the following three days, which I'm going to be spending with my parents in New Mexico. My parents carry their own bottles of Tanqueray and Weller bourbon whenever they travel; not partaking will be, to say the least, a herculean labor.

Everybody's growing - huzzah.

Good luck with that!

Side Note:

Julie, you inspire me. I'm sure this is nothing you haven't heard before. I'm on page 97 of Julie and Julia and I can't get enough. I can relate so much and I'm always writing "Lol" in the margins. It's actually a required reading for my Rhetoric and Composition class ("Food for Thought and Writing about Food") at the University of Texas (Austin.) In any event-- I must say thank you!

Good luck, Julie, have fun at the wedding and with your family. I'll wait until I see how you do without any 'tipples' (thanks grandma) until I attempt my own abstain-ation (not a word, I KNOW!).

I just finished 'the book',and i was delighted. (no embellishment issues, i trust?) So, to honour Julia and you i decided to make bread from "Baking with Julia" and the crazy thing is, it turned out fucking perfect! It must be JC karma. Cheers!

I call your share of gimlets until then... Would have never thought they were so good until I tried from your "perfect gimlet soundbyte thingie..."
Loved the recipe/cuss/shake/drink sequence.
Do you have a vodka preference?

I was lucky enough to travel with Julia Child herself way, way back in the 80s before you, Julie Powell, were even born. Hee. She was fun and so are you. I'm just over halfway done with the book and it's pretty fun (except the aspic section, ewww).

I'm a fan and I'm sorry only that I'm just now jumping on the Julie Bandwagon...Congratulations on all your success!
