Frank McCourt and Julia Childs????

I'm listening to Frank McCourt's book "Teacher Man" on CD in my car. It's all I can do to keep from bringing it in the house to listen to when I get home from work! What a great story, and it was read by the author himself. I just don't know if it would have been as good if he hadn't read it.......

Julie and Julia on DVD. We watched it tonight for the first time, Julia Childs was a hoot, and Julie Powell is going to get some research done on her.

I've got to know more about Julia Childs, the way Meryl Streep portrayed her in the movie was fascinating! What a lighthearted and happy sould Julia must have been.....she and her hubby were so in love.

I was so tickled about the visit from her sister. It reminds me how I feel when I see Karen Jean or my friend in Colorado, (Karen's namesake) The overall sense of joy, love and contentment to just lay your eyes on them, spend time with them and love on them.

I love both of you Karen's with all my heart....I love you more'n my that movie!!!!

Merry Christmas to you all!!!

yeah, this Karen ain't so good at movies. Is it the Julia movie? We rented that too and watched it. I loved it! i can't believe it was based on a real story. I bet the book is 100 x's better too!
