A Blog Becomes a Movie

The image “http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2007-01/16/xinsrc_4020104161822765281789.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. Well, we've seen blogs made into books, but I believe we have a new first: a blog made into a movie.

Apparently, Hollywood is going to make a film based on the blog by Julie Powell, who wrote about her attempt to make every recipe in Julia' Child's cookbook, the Art of French Cooking. The blog became a best-selling book, and now Meryl Streep is set to play Julia Child in the movie. Nora Ephron wrote the script and is directing.

I'm having a hard time imagining that, but Streep has accomplished wonderous transformations before.

Dear. Ms. Dinkelspiel,
11 days without a post does not a blogger make.

I am sorry but we will have to delist you from our list of professional bloggers.

Oh you are so right. This must be from my brother. How about the excuse that my 450-page book manuscript is due in three weeks? Does that cut me any slack?

Hi Frances,

I heard that you are working on a book about the Hellman's. Have you done any family research on the Schweitzer part of the family... going back to the Mandelbaum's? That is my part of the family... which means we are distantly related. If you have time send me an email.

Regards,

Susie Miller (yes from ages ago)
