Oh, Julia | Manolo for the Big Girl

Oh, Julia

I’ve mentioned before how much I’ve always loved Julia Child. From early childhood she shaped my thoughts and beliefs about food, cooking, and simply existing in a profound way. Do I agree with everything she ever said? Of course not. I don’t agree with everything Mr. Twistie says, either. I do, however, admire greatly the way she approached life and good food, with gusto and vigor.

I’m off shortly to finally take in a matinee of Julie and Julia, and fully intend to enjoy the hell out of watching Meryl Streep play Julia. But before I go, I thought I’d share a few clips of the lady herself with you all.

    Why on earth would I behave respectfully to a troll?

    I really really advise against it. Twistie gets paid to flap her yak and so do I, it’s the point of this site. I strongly invite you to find someplace else to go and maybe search the site to see our policy on trolling.
