Day 117 - Julia Childs

Day 117.

Every so often, I'll get an email or a post comment that refers to Julia Child as "Julia Childs" with an "s."

Or a tweet.

And to be honest, it's become one of my biggest pet peeves. In fact, I might even go so far as to say that it pisses me off a great deal. I dedicate 2+ hours of each day watching Julia Child (and some other lady) gallivant about on my laptop screen and you can't even bother to spell her name correctly? C'mon, guys! You know I love you, but seriously. Julia Childs?

Even NMR is pissed off.

Maybe I'm being a little too irate--I acknowledge that this is a very small gripe and I should be grateful to even have readers in the first place. But over these past 117 days, I've grown to be rather protective of this movie and its characters, as much as I hate them (everyone except Meryl). So next time you write a comment or email or tweet, just do me a favor and look it over once before you send it so you can make sure you don't look like a fool. Julia Childs. Psssfthh. I can't believe it.

Everyone knows that the plural form of 
Julia Child is Julia Children.

Too bad she can't have any.

  1. Are you saying that you don't like Julia Childs, award winning author of such plays as the light hearted The Coffin Factory?

    Maybe Julie & Julia 2 can be about her. Make it happen.

  16. Once you got out there he was the guy you have a bit of a joke with. He might have read something you said throughout the week and give you a wink before the game. He been playing professional sport since 18 years of age, 25 years. I'm going to give it everything I have, like I always have. It will certainly be a challenge. I don't take any of these things for granted, but I hope I can keep playing and I hope I can keep playing at a championship level.".

    What's the truth about you and women? I've been in love I was madly in love in my first bears beets battlestar galactica shirt relationship. But black lives matter t shirt then when you get close to a girl you're dating, you might same color t shirt shy away when you get insecure. Do I believe in monogamy and that? It remains to be seen.
