Day 327 - Julie & Julia Slowed Down x0.5

Day 327.

Yesterday, I had the brilliant idea of watching Julie & Julia sped up twice as fast as usual. So naturally, today I decided it was only right to watch it twice as slow. I figured "Hey, if I get to reap the benefits of speeding through one viewing of J&J, I guess I'm going to have to deal with the consequences later. Let me tell you--one hour of Julie & Julia is great, four hours is HELL.

This was a horrible, horrible idea.

Worst 4 hours of my life. No joke. And what do I have to show for this little experiment?

1 Hour Sped-Up Julie & Julia + 4 Hours Slowed-Down Julie & Julia = 5 Hours Julie & Julia
2 Hours Julie & Julia + 2 Hours Julie & Julia = 4 Hours Julie & Julia

5 Hours Julie & Julia > 4 Hours Julie & Julia

Despite my Asian roots, I was never all that good at maths--clearly.
