Oh Julia!

After that last post, I’m in need of something lighter, something funny, something…

auto-tuned.

I think Julia Child is amazing, and I’m so sad that I never got a chance to tell her so.  Her life story is the stuff movies are made of (and in fact the parts about her life were by far the best part of Julie & Julia).  Her cookbooks are fun to read — and also pretty useful, once you get used to her style.  And boy, did she have presence!

Last year was the 100th anniversary of her birth (today’s her birthday btw), and so PBS made this delightful video to celebrate.  (via Shakesville)
