Excerpt from www.inncuisine.com the second person who highly recommends this new movie Julie and Julie...
Off Topic: On Julie & Julia Aug 14th, 2009 by Sandie.
Last night, something remarkable happened: My husband and I saw a film that maybe, just maybe, gave us a deeper appreciation of each other. Corny, but true. Now this may seem like no big deal to you, but I assure you, it is. For nearly two years, my husband has lived with my blogging, often wondering (especially in the beginning) why I would take on such an endeavor and why I would care about it so. To his credit, 90% of the time he has managed to control these thoughts (or at least refrain from vocalizing them), but there have been (and still are) times when he’s rolled his eyes at my attachment to cooking, baking & blogging and the hours I’ve spent browsing cookbooks, cooking magazines and reading other blogs. Yet for every time I’ve tried his blogger-husband patience with comments like, “Don’t touch that food, I haven’t taken photos yet,” or “I’ll be ready in a minute, just let me finish this post,” or worse yet…the dreaded, “Would you mind stopping by the market on your way home? I need more heavy cream,” my husband has been behind the scenes, cheering me on despite his bewilderment. etc...
read her blog article for all the details. Movie trailer and info here. An endearing movie to say the least...about love - faithfulness and food! We need movies like this!

I want to go see it but I have to find someone to go with me or go on my own. My dh has informed me after see the trailers on TV and the previews before other movies that he's just not interested. It looks cute to me!

Well can't go to the movies tonight because of the check-ins are not all here! I don't mind going alone. I go alone a lot. It is my only escape from the B & B. I turn my brain off there.

The book was interesting! The idea behind the blog was spot on.

Isn't that rude! They act like it is all right to show up an hour or two late. They don't realize we have a life and plans just like they do. I hate it when folks say they will show up 4-5 and show up at 7, just like they planned it that way.

Yeah it happens. They were going to check in at noon for a wedding but then when I was getting ready to leave I called and they were still 4 hours away. By 4pm they called and said they weren't checking in until 9pm because they were already late for the wedding.
