Please, please, please tell me the producers know what they are doing. Meryl Streep is going to play Julia Child in a movie. A movie based on the book and blog; Julie and Julia 365 days, 524 recipes, 1 tiny apartment: How One Girl Risked Her Marriage, Her Job, and Her Sanity to Master the Art of Living by Julie Powell. Julie Powell cooked all 524 recipes in Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking. I think it took a lot of chutzpah or insanity to cook all those dishes. Sometimes chutzpah and insanity are one and the same. I loved the book, but if I remember correctly Julia Child wasn't too keen on the Julie/Julia project. I thought she would see the humor in it. So, when I read that part in the book I was surprised, because if anything, Julia Child always looked like she was having a blast. I hope she's not rolling over in her grave right now.

update: i've seen the movie and i was w-w-w-w-rong. meryl streep was wonderful.
