Julie and Julia

I watched Julie and Julia tonight with my mom as a last hurrah before I go home. This was a horrible idea as its now 1 am and have a 4-hour drive ahead of me tomorrow. But it inspired me to write a blog post about something other than my kids. It doesn't even have pictures! Funnily enough, it's a blog about a movie about a blog about a book. And it's not even some grand spectacular thing like the original blog was. In fact, it's only one little question that is bugging me. (1 am, remember? I don't have time for more than one little question.)

Why did Julia not like Julie's blog?! This seems very un-Julia-like. She likes everyone. It never explains it. (Unless both my mom and I missed it. Which is possible. 1 am. Remember?)

Someone please explain this to me! Please?

From what I remember when I researched that very question a few years ago was that the modern Julia wasn't a very nice person. If I recall, she used lots of profanities, had affairs on her husband, etc. The movie shows her as much more sweet and innocent than she actually is.

Julia didn't like everyone. The Julia portrayed in the movie was supposedly the idea of Julia that Julie had in her head (since she didn't know her). That being said, I really liked the movie. It was cute.
