Really?! Wow! I read the book before I knew what a blog was.

I haven't read the blog OR the book, but the movie looks wonderful (and I did read My Life in France by Julia, and it looks like the movie touches on a lot of what was in THAT book, so yay).

I had never heard of the blog until I read the book, but I know I would have loved it. And now I've read the book twice and thought it was terrific both times.

I'm not so sure about this movie though. From what I saw in the trailer, it appears that Nora Ephron took liberties with the book, which always drives me crazy.

But, I love the fact that Jem's song "It's amazing" is in the trailer -- definitely my favorite from her new album.

I too, am excited.
Especially to see Meryl Streep play Julia Child.

I read the blog first, then the book, and frankly, the book is not well written. I had no desire to see the movie UNTIL - Meryl Streep as Julia Child! Must go!

It was my first blog too! I found her just as she was about to go off air. In my memory, my next blog was say la vee, but is that possible chronologically?

This is one I may even try to actually see in the theater, instead of waiting for it to come out on DVD. Although I'd still want to see the Special Features, as well.
I was a little disappointed in the book. I kept thinking "My God, woman. If you're so miserable, just QUIT! Nobody's holding a gun to your head."

But, I think I'll like the movie.
I can't wait to see this either--it looks positively charming.

I didn't know there WAS a book until I saw it on another blog. And her blog seemed pointless once I'd read the book.

Didn't know there was a film either. Thank goodness for blogs, or I'd be totally uninformed about anything.
