So a recent favorite book of mine, Julie/Julia, is going to be turned into a movie starring Meryl Streep as Julia Child, and someone I've never heard of who has starred in Disney movies as Julie. It's being directed by Nora "When Harry Met Sally" Ephron.

I'm not sure how to feel about this because although I'll definitely check out the movie, I just know that it's going to be a watered down chick movie. And of course the book is chick lit and it's about cooking, so of course it should be a chick movie, but I'm pretty sure they're going to take out all my favorite parts. Nora Ephron, please include the following bits:

1. When a coworker at Julie's job asks if she's a Republican and a different coworker scoffs, "Republicans don't wear vintage!"

2. The fact that she and her husband are huge Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans.

3. Vodka gimlets.

4. Julie's unapologetic potty mouth. I especially loved when a tourist asked her for directions to New Jersey as she was outside with a frying pan practicing how to flip an omelet, and she responds, "Lady, you are hell and gone from fucking New Jersey."

5. The 10-20 pounds of "butter fat" that is gained over the year.

6. Julie's frequent, more-obnoxious-than-cute meltdowns.

7. The maggots that are discovered breeding under the drip pan by the sink.
