Oh Julie/Julia. What a fantastic movie. The preview a few months back got me interested in the book. Reading the book got me interested in finally watching the movie. I do have a rule...if a movie and a book exist, and I'm excited about both, I always feel just a tiny bit better reading the book first. I know that seeing the movie first will mean that...I never get around to reading the book.
Someday I'd love to be inspired to take on a project the way Julie Powell did. A commitment, an adventure! I could say that my grad school adventure is a project and a commitment, but it's a bit different.
It doesn't involve Beef Bourguignon!
