Anywho, the first prompt is:
But, stay with me here...
I think I'm a lot like Amy Adams' portrayal of Julie Powell. Kind of manic, adorable redhead, sweet and supportive husband, kind of a bitch at times, strained relationship with mother, loves to read, wear pearls, cook, and fixates on projects.
I do not, however, identify with the actual Julie Powell.
I saw the movie first, which broke my cardinal rule of books-turned-into-movies, but I'm glad that it happened in that order in this case. I love the movie. I did not love the book. I found the Julie Powell in the book to be a completely obnoxious, self-absorbed shrew. She's quite lucky that the studio got the amazing and adorable Amy Adams to play her on screen, because it made even her worst character flaws forgiveable.
....so maybe it's just that I'd like to identify with Amy Adams. Hmmm.
But I mean...who WOULDN'T? LOOK AT HER!
