Day 231 - Pillows Are For Your Head

Day 231.

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of watching Julie & Julia (for the 230th time) amongst new friends. As always, it was really quite therapeutic to be able to share my daily pain with others. And the best part of it all is that I didn't feel that crazy for talking to myself/cursing out Julie Powell, because I can just attribute any audible mouth words that I may emit to "conversation."

AND with sets of fresh eyes to watch the movie, I got a bunch of new post ideas--like this one from my new buddy Katrina M.

YO JULIE POWELL, WHY ARE YOU SLEEPING 
WITH THAT PILLOW ON TOP OF YOU?



Katrina asked me this during the movie, and for the first time in awhile, I didn't have an answer to this Julie & Julia-related question. I really don't know. Pillows are supposed to be for your head. Julie Powell should know this. She is a reasonably smart woman. Plus, it's not like she's foreign/unfamiliar with American culture or anything. Hell, pillows are generally a head-exclusive thing even in other cultures.

HEY JULIE, PILLOWS ARE FOR YOUR HEAD, NOT YOUR FEETS

So why the fuck are they just lying at the foot of the bed/over Julie's legs?? Surely that can't be comfortable. And functionality-wise, I just don't see it. What purpose do those pillows serve? I can't imagine they provide warmth--blankets would do a much better job of that. And she already has blankets.

It's almost as if the set-dresser had ordered 1 or 2 too many pillows from Bed, Bath & Beyond and just decided to throw them into the scene so she wouldn't be wasting money or something. This is such a stupid movie.

Oh, and before I forget:


Happy birthday, douche. I really fucking hate Julie Powell.

  1. I sleep with a pillow on my head too! It's dark, warm, and comforting, and dramatically cuts down on light and sounds. Don't knock it til you've tried it!

  2. Over the head is one thing. Yes, it cuts out lights/sounds, makes it easier to suffocate you in your sleep etc. The benefits go on.
    But, putting a pillow above your leg just makes no sense

  5. Wow I somehow managed to find this blog and I was totally blown away. I thought I was a Huge fan of Julie & Julia- I've been watching it every other day for the past month, checked out the book and Julia Child's book, "My Life in France" from the library, but this blog is just over the top!
    haha I'll have to catch up on the past 230 days of your posts.
    You must be super tired of the movie by now- do you actually watch the whole 2 hours of the movie or just snippets?
    Anyway good luck with it all!! Love the Lawrence/Julie & Julia Project.

  7. I've slept with a pillow and/or blanket on my feet since I was 6; I've never considered it strange until now. Thanks...

  8. La ragione popolarità di ristorante milano è che essi presentano i pasti nel modo più fantasioso e creativo possibile. Ogni piatto è come un'opera d'arte per chef italiani. Sono gli unici ristoranti che producono le pizze da 20 pollici, che hanno respirato varie verdure diverse, frutti di mare, le spezie e carni che non si sarebbe nemmeno pensare di combinare.

  9. Headaches, neck torment and solid neck are the most widely recognized objections heard and treated by chiropractors and specialists today. In the event that you stir with a firm neck or with neck torment frequently it is likely in the pillow you are utilizing. Cerebral pains and neck agony are now and then related, particularly when your neck is not appropriately bolstered amid sleep.
