"You Carry Your Weight Very Well."

That is what the radio interviewer - a very smart, engaging woman, by the way - said to me on the elevator up to her studio at 6:50 this morning.

Why thanks.

In other news, the weather is gorgeous in Denver, though my hotel can't do my dry cleaning, which makes me sniff like a haughty New York author, though I try to keep it to myself.

Tattered Cover tonight, eager to see it after all the buzz I've heard about it over the years. Tomorrow, St. Louis.

You should have responded with, "Oh, thank you! I like your hair. Are those implants?" or "I know a surgeon who could do wonders with that nose!"

You are fucking amazing writer! I just read your book, which I had vaguely heard about before but never quite got. I was so enthralled that I read it in two days. I know that since it probably took a couple of years to write this could be a bit of a bummer but I read so fast because YOU ARE AN AWESOME WRITER! So tell your elevator companions not to hate you cuz you're beautiful!

Why has it become socially acceptable to comment on a stranger's weight? But since that horse has left the barn, I'll tell you... I was at the Tattered Cover the other night and you are HOT. You are also a great reader -- your voice in person was just as I imagined you when I read the book. Looking very much forward to the butchery yarns.

Comments like that are the main reason why people who get up at a normal hour of the morning are a smarter, more considerate bunch. They can actually use their brains and consider the other person before they open their mouths. Chalk it up to an argument for sleeping in on a regular basis. That is, if the radio interviewer was an otherwise okay individual.

Dear Julie - I just finished reading your book and really enjoyed it; I discovered it after reading Julia Child's My Life in France. The only thing I didn't enjoy was your dismissal of vegetarians and vegetarianism. I understand it's all part and parcel of your wicked sense of humor which is what made the book so fun, but in dismissing vegetarianism as "silly" you were also dismissing entire cuisines that developed for a vegetarian palate (many Asian cuisines, for instance) that are far from bland and boring, and in doing so I felt it undercut one of the things that was so great about the book, which is to express the generosity and love that comes from cooking really good food. I hope you'll give vegetarian food a chance. Congratulations on the book being such as a success and good luck!

Oh jiminy christmas that is just so dumb. I once had someone say to me, "I have a weight problem too, but it's the opposite of yours. I can't keep weight on." And we had no in any way been discussing weight. I chalked it up to her being certifiably insane. :)

Last week a man said to me: "Look at you, your pregnant". I said "No....". He then said --"Yeah ya are and patted my belly." At that point I took it upon myself to teach him a little bit of etiquette and said, "No, I haven't had sex in years, I'm just fat." Stupid people will shut up when you put them in their places. It's kind of a nice sound.

Hi Julie,
Last week I walked into the office of one of the engineers I work with but don't see in person very often (gotta love that internet), and after he greeted me and shook my hand, he opened with, "Wow. Your hair is a LOT grayer than the last time I saw you." Honey, some people are just dorks (and I mean that in the nicest possible way). They don't really mean any harm, they are just so socially inept that when confronted with a social moment that generally requires some bland nice-ity, they...well...they blurt. The good thing about these very awkward moments is that they make GREAT stories. And your friends can cluck their tongues and shake their heads and say, "Did she actually say that OUT LOUD!"

Blogger Ooddles Natural Premium Dog Food - Grain Free & Hypoallergenic Dog Food By Ooddles Kitchen said...

Ooddles has been developing dog food since 2016; it all started when a family member of a breeder became aware of the low-quality ingredients used in many dog foods commonly available. After extensive research, they developed two formulas with leading UK manufacturers. They launched two dry food products, the original two lines called Game On and The Catch which became very popular, very quickly, and still very popular today, these formulas were aimed at crossbreeds, although suitable for all breeds. Always selling out of the two lines, it became apparent the food was well received.

In the pursuit of an enhanced online reputation, some businesses turn to services that offer to `buy Google reviews cheap in India`, a practice rooted in both cost-efficiency and deceit. These services promise an influx of positive reviews at a minimal financial outlay, preying on companies that are eager for quick visibility and prestige. Typically operating beyond authentic customer experience, these reviews are mass-produced by individuals incentivized by economic gain rather than authentic engagement with the business. While superficially such reviews may boost a local business's appeal, they essentially erode the credibility of the review ecosystem, deceive potential customers, and flout Google's stringent policies. As these fake endorsements flood a business profile, they risk exposure by savvy consumers and vigilant review analysis algorithms, inviting adverse actions from Google, including account penalties and loss of consumer trust. The lure of an immediate uptick in ratings thus belies the perilous implications for a business's long-term reputation and ethical standing.
