new year stuff

Hey guys. Sorry I've been out of the loop - I've been busy with thoroughly uninteresting, non-book-related, Christmas-y stuff; driving to Texas, buying presents, breaking up dog fights, promising to lose 25 pounds, that sort of thing. There's nothing too terribly interesting to report at the moment. I'll be off to London in a month or so for the UK release of my book, there to visit my Bath bookstore-owning friend and her adorable husband. Until then, work. Hopefully I will be getting in my next book proposal within the next week or so, that should be good. Will let you know.

Oh, and I'm supposed to be very very happy that UT won last night. You may insert my savage hurrahs here.

I just remembered my reason for posting. I need your help. We're looking for a new subtitle for the paper back edition. Something first-person-y, that emphasizes the memoir aspect more than the foodie aspect. Thoughts? Let me know....

As I approached 30, I discovered that the starving artist routine sucked. This is the story of how I found my true calling through a Julia Child cookbook and a little zen and the art of butter.

Probably too long, but it was just a brainstorm first pass. I'll forward your request to some of my snarky writer gal pals and see if we come up with anything good. Definitely more fun that working on stuff we're supposed to be doing.

Hi Julie,
I received your book as a gift after a book fair (much like your Spence one - I belive it was Spence). I enjoyed your book so much that when I saw the end was coming I put off reading it because I didn't want it to end. I know it sounds typical but I loved your book so much.
Anyway - about your request why not something that is already in your book, something you already wrote.
I dogeared the page (pg. 166)
"There are hidden trap doors all over the place, and suddenly you see one, and the next thing you know you're...chopping lobsters in half, and the world's just so much bigger than you thought it was."
I loved that quote - anyway just an idea.
Thanks for the book.

J&J: How I learned to quit worrying and love Aspic.

So Matty and I were at an opening night party of one of his shows and a fan came up to talk to him about his shoes, and their fanciness. As we talk, he asks us if we like Scrabble...(yes), and if we like pie...(yes), and if we would like to hang out with him eating his homemade pie and playing scrabble...(yesyes). So now he is the coolest person we have met in Chicago and we ask him what he does and he tells us he has decided to quit his bureaucratic republican day job bullshit and pursue his dream of going to pastry chef school. And I turn to Matt and say "He is the gay male Julie." And he says "OMIGOD! Have you read Julie and Julia?" and we're all "Dude! We were AT aspicpalooza!" And Tuesday was his first day of pastry school.

You inspired him to change his life, Julie. So when people are being catty and you are being catty to yourself, put it aside. You inspired a really neat person to follow his dreams. Plus, he had five kinds of dessert for lunch yesterday, including the best cream puff of his life and several truffles.

J&J: How butter, aspic, and gimlets made me a professional writer.

Still a little clunky - I'll keep thinkin.

To echo your pal pinky: I have given 5 copies of your book to friends who are at all at a huge career or emotional crossroads right now. Everyone of my buddies went out of their way to thank me for introducing them to your hilarious and inspirational book. We are all foodie/artist types in a major city so your words and feelings rang particularly true for us. While you may be getting a little tired of it - I just wanted you to know that you reached at least 6 people in The Windy City in a powerful way. And made us laugh so hard we peed a little.

Hey Pinky:
I'm a wine educator and actress in Chicago. (I know. Crazy.) Sounds like you are new to the city and in the theatre and food scene. Check out my biz - Winediva Enterprises ( or my theatre company Appetite Theatre('re always looking for cool arty food loving folks. Happy to be a resource or help you and your guy out anyway I can.

Its not New York, but the restaurants and theatre here are just incredible. So much to discover.

Julie Powell? THE Julie Powell of lobster-killing (in)fame?

From your content here, I get the feeling you are, and that feeling comes to me in the form of a bad taste in my mouth. You're a wretched human being. How about you stick to watching golf.

There are many good parental controls these days, but I still consider mSpy the best one. It's simple - apart from ordinary info such as gps location and calls/messages, it also allows you to see all the calendar activities and additional device info. You know, that data can show you a lot more and help you understand your kid better.
