Day 100 - Onions

Day 100.

In a lot of ways, the film Julie & Julia is like an onion--unassuming and kind of boring on the outside, but once you peel back the many, many layers, you discover something wondrous within, simply bursting with flavor. And with this awesome metaphor on my mind, I decided to commemorate the 100th day of the Lawrence/Julie & Julia Project by recreating the famous onion chopping scene from Julie & Julia. Happy 100th day, everyone!









Special thanks to Annie for being my Stanley Tucci and Kaitlin and Jon for taking photos. It took me 4+ hours to cut up all those onions (30 lbs. to be exact). Julie & Julia has never made me cry the way that it did today.

Also, all my dormmates hate me for making the hallway reek of onions. So I hope you enjoyed this.

We did it, guys. 100 days.

And here's some extra stuff...















Tears of joy.

  3. First off let me just say......Happy 100th! I started laughing the moment I saw the movie's onion scene and for a brief moment I thought "No, he didn't do what I think he did". I could not stop laughing scrolling through the rest of the pictures. This scene and the one where Paul comes home and asks "Where's my big sprig?" are the two funniest moments to me. By the way, do any of your friends watch the movie with you? Given the amount of time you have left and depending on the participation of a few others, I see many interesting posts ahead of you.

  7. mad props for doing this. i don't know how seriously you considered your journey before you embarked, but though this is apparently no easy ship to sail, you're holding forth and that is badass. "our generation lacks commitment and work ethic" and is "too fixated on social networking and blogging and other self centric internet activities" but you are in some ways kicking both of those criticisms in the ass with themselves. as if that sentence makes any sense.
    basically: respect. which is a ridiculous thing for me to say to you because you've watched julie and julia 100 times. wow.

    bon voyage, my friend!
