Now for the winner of the Blabbermouse Birthday Book Giveaway (selected by Random.Org):
Congratulations to ...
Nancy from Fear & Parenting in Las Vegas! Nancy will be getting a shiny new copy of David Sedaris's Naked (just email me the address where you'd like it sent, Nancy). Nancy has been a longtime reader and Blabbermouse supporter, so I'm delighted to bring this little piece of sunshine to her Monday morning. Or Tuesday morning. Or, you know, whenever she stops by here to see if she won. If she remembers. Which she might not. I'm going to email her and tell her. Just in case.
Okay, moving on!
Did any of you see the movie Julie & Julia or read the book? I got a near-frantic e-mail from my mother-in-law this weekend demanding that I drop whatever I'm doing, leave the kids in the cart at Target, and GO rent this movie. I haven't read the book, because (shallow reason alert:) I don't like to cook, and I am bored by descriptions of sauces and cuts of meat. I haven't seen the movie because from what little I know about the book, Amy Adams seems a weird choice for the role of Julie, and (REALLY shallow reason alert:) I hate the way she looks in her wig.
And I derive all of this from my own head, basically. It's where I get all my best opinions about things I know nothing about.
So, if you saw the movie and loved it ... or read the book and loved it ... and you think I would love it, despite all the cooking (yawn) and that WIG (blargh), let me know, so I can keep my mother-in-law happy.
In other news, I have a new humor post up at Her Nashville this week, in which Gus tackles the wonderful world of magic.
David Copperfield, he is not. But the spell he casts is really ... something else.
