I am a serial confessor
Confession #1- I love going to the movies by myself, I prefer it to going with friends.
With friends I want to have dinner and some wine, sit in the backyard, at the movies, you are just two people in the same place at the same time...what's the point?
Confession #2- I went to see Julie and Julia tonight, just now, and well I am a Chef and I blog, perfect book and movie for me no surprise there, but I have to tell someone that I sneaked in a Chef's Salad with peppercorn dressing and a small split of champagne that I popped in the parking lot and put in my water bottle (most of the bubbles were still there)! I had to, I mean ...it's Julia Child for crying out loud! (it is not lost on me that if I had invited a friend I would not have to confess)
Confession #3- I stopped by a crafts store on the way home and bought one of those circle punching things and it was on sale, so I bought it, mostly just to see if they really work and WOW! I cant stop punching paper circles...It is SOOOO satisfying!
Not for nothing but the movie was great. It's pretty hard for Meryl Streep not to steal the show though. I kept wanting only to see the parts with her in it, I mean it was France, it was vintage clothes, it was vintage housewares and it was cooking so what's not to love?
