Julie and Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen by Julie Powell
Julie and Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen

Oh how I adored this book, well until I found the author to be a horrid woman. While I loved the book the blog was horrid, dull, and full of dry content. The idea is wonderful of course, it's just sad that someone with an internal and external beauty brought it to life.

After reading the first book I had not read the blog. I moved on and read the second book, which prompted me to look at the stupid blog. It was then that I also viewed interviews and picture of the woman behind all of this, Julie Powell. Wow! How could such an awful person be so lucky, to write something so great and follow it up with garbage. While judgment and vanity are not the norm for me I found Julie to be over barring and nasty in the way she shat on her "relationship" But I am shocked that such a large and unattractive woman was able to land another man, sure a stranger in a doorway, but someone for years....??? Shocking!

Well its all a partnership and one with someone bringing in the thick bacon. So, in my way I have learned to move past it by ripping the movie for free, and borrowing the books. I encourage and have had success in having others who are also near vomiting at the thought of this woman 's action and unsavory appearance to do the same. All in an effort to thwart funds to this unworthy, ugly, obese, human being who dared call Julia a "Bitch"
