Julie & Julia – Review

Julie & JuliaMy best-beloved is cardio-vascular ICU nurse. She works the 7pm-7am shift and has worked four of the last six nights, which means our schedules are exactly 12 hours out of sync with each other.

She is also a marvelous cook; my friends are amazed I don’t weigh 400 pounds.

Given these two facts, it should be unsurprising that we ended up at the midnight showing of Julie and Julia last night. She got to indulge her passion for food, and she’s up all night anyway, so what’s the big deal?

We had the theatre entirely to ourselves – there was no one else there.

We enjoyed it. If you like Food Network, or like Julia Child, or just like Meryl Streep, you’ll probably like this movie.

3 out of 5 stars.

A Weird Record

Evan Williams must hold the record for “The Most People Using the Most Words He Created in the Least Time”, or something like that. First “blog“, “blogger” and now “twitter“. Is he the Bill Shakespeare of the 21st century? (Ok, I am being facetious.)

But seriously, is there anyone else who has added words to the language that have become ubiquitous so fast? I’d like to hear your thoughts.
