Day 199 - Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? (pt. 3)

Day 199.

In Part 1, we were welcomed into the home of Sophie K. and met all of her family and friends. Also, I almost burned her house down.

In Part 2, we got to know Sophie K., the plucky young 13-year-old with the stones to ask her favorite Julie & Julia blogger to her house for dinner. I was also lectured about the evils of swearing.

And finally, I'm proud to present to you all the 3rd and final installment of Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?, in which I share my daily viewing of Julie & Julia with Sophie and her family and friends. Will they make it through the whole movie? See for yourself.

Also, of extreme importance, I put off the release of Part 3 until today for a very specific reason. You may not know it, but today is in fact, a very special day--it's Sophie K's 14th birthday! Hooray for birth!

What happens when you invite someone you met over the internet into your home.


Sophie, I wish you well on this miraculous day--may all of your wildest dreams come true. Thanks again for inviting me into your beautiful home. I had a great time and I sure hope this "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" experience was as fun for you as it was for me and the three other people who read The Lawrence/Julie & Julia Project.


Julie & Julia
Quote of the Day: "Happy birthday, sweetheart."


  1. Hey Lawrence, "Julie&Julia" is not available on Netflix, so they suggested "Jury Duty" instead. Julie Powell=Pauly Shore? Or is that unfair to Pauly Shore?

  2. Lawrence,

    Thank you so much for all of these posts! I loved every single one of them. Also, thank you for the birthday wishes. That made my day. :)


  3. So I guess it's safe to say that you only visit 14-year-old girls who live inside the United States... right?

  4. And aw, you almost made it without using the F-word.

  5. Wow. Tomorrow will make 200 days. Two frickin' hundred days. Wow.

  6. Lawrence -- I applaud your tenacity, but it does seem like you're running out of ideas for posts. And I can't say I'd do any better -- I mean, hell, 200 days talking about one movie (that's not Citizen Kane, anything by Terrance Malick, or The Big Lebowski) and anyone would run out of ideas. But I think there probably more ideas out there -- like:
    What does J&J say about feminism, and the role of women as the traditional home cook vs. a chef?

    What about Julia's spying days? Anything to that?

    What does Julie's "success" as a blogger say about the medium of blogs, when she started vs. today?

    So these ideas are probably crap, but I bet other people have better ones. You should sponsor a reader contest for "best blog ideas." And you could, I dunno, give a signed copy of J&J to the person you like best... you could even make it a user contest with voting... that'd take up at least 3 days' worth of posts.

    Just trying to give you some fuel to get you to break through the 200-day wall. Best of luck buddy.
