Day 119 - Final Four

Day 119.

Ladies and gentlemen, we've reached the Final Four (of the Julie & Julia Best Supporting Character Tournament, that is). The winners in bold.

Game 9: Simone Beck (1) vs. Chef Max Bugnard (5) - In a fairly close race, local favorite "Simca" edges out Chef Max Bugnard a.k.a. Colonel Sanders to advance to the next round. Simone Beck attributes her big win to her gameplan, as she managed to successfully neutralize the Colonel's secret blend of herbs and spices.

Game 10: Dorothy McWilliams a.k.a. Julia's Sister (3) vs. Ivan Cousins (7) - In a battle of the spouses, the wife emerges victorious. Did anyone even doubt the outcome of this one? I mean, to quote the Tucc, "I can't imagine Dorothy running off with Ivan Cousins." By "running off with," he clearly means "lose to in a reader vote-based blog competition"

Game 11: Julie's Cat (8) vs. Regina/Cassie (4) - I really should have seeded Julie's Cat higher. This feline has all the momentum going into the Final Four, after absolutely spattering the two-headed bitchdragon known as Regina/Cassie.

Game 7: Julie's Mom (3) vs. Ernestine (2) -In the closest matchup of this round, Ernestine pattycakes her way on through to the next round, beating the heavily favored Southern drawl of Julie's mom. Well, not actually heavily favored, since Ernie was seeded higher. Oh well. I just wish I could get a high-quality closeup screenshot of her face. Too bad this movie is super racist.

  1. OK, so I'm sure you know this already, but Simone Beck's nickname came from a make of car. Every time I hear or see Simca (whether it be Simone or not), I think of this comedy song "La Simca 1000" in which the singer plans to get laid in...a Simca 1000.

    I'm not sure you can work this into your blog entries, but if you can, that'd be cool. At the very least you'll go to bed less stupid (tu te coucheras moins bĂȘte), as the French say.
