Day 272 - Julie & Julia on TV

Day 272.

I can't remember the last time I actually watched Julie & Julia on a television set. Back in the early days of the L/J&J Project, I used to watch it on Netflix Instant and now I usually just play the DVD on my laptop. And I guess I'll occasionally play that shit on my iPhone on a busy day. But when I saw that J&J was airing on Lifetime this evening, I thought I'd try it out and see if a change in scenery would improve the viewing.

Well, for starters, the 2 hour and 3 minute movie was a whopping three hours long now, thanks to commercials, but surprisingly enough, I didn't mind the extra hour. It was actually kind of nice to have some commercial breaks in there to cut up that piece-of-shit movie into somewhat more palatable smaller portions of shit.

This was the first time watching TV that I was actually looking forward to watching commercials. In fact, I audibly groaned whenever Julie & Julia came back on. That Prilosec ad was just getting good!

I also had the privilege of being able to see the cable company-written synopsis of the movie for the first time, which read:
This witty adaptation of Julie Powell's autobiographical book stars Amy Adams as an amateur chef who decides to try out every recipe in a cookbook by Julia Child (Meryl Streep) and writes about it in a blog over the course of a year. (Comedy, 123 Mins.)

That's a serviceable synopsis, I suppose. But if it were up to me, I might change a thing or two about it: 
This SHITTY adaptation of SATAN'S BIBLE stars Amy Adams as a PROFESSIONAL BITCH who decides to try out every recipe in a cookbook by Julia Child (THE GODDESS MERYL STREEP) and WIPES HER ASS ON YOUR EYES over the course of a year. (HORROR/TRAGEDY, LIKE, A BILLION Mins.)

At least there was an all new episode of Drop Dead Diva to look forward to afterwards. It's the little things that get me through each day.

  7. Getting good practicing tennis instructors plus tennis custom motor coaches is tricky. The bulk are original college or twelfth grade players who seem to look quite good impacting a tennis ball, but currently have little specific teaching practical experience.

  8. Passage of online moneylenders in the back market has enlarged its development scope. A borrower can peruse a few credit loaning sites. Obtaining an advance online makes it helpful for a borrower to snatch the terrible credit individual advance, best case scenario rate accessible in the market.

  9. Fella, watch Drop Dead Diva. It's awesome. In addition there's an Asian lady in it... the astonishing Margaret Cho. That is more than J&J can assert in its all-white cast!Dissertation Writers
