What's in a Title?


Here's a fun little tag that anyone can play. Just go to AMAZON.COM, click on BOOKS, then ADVANCED SEARCH, type your first name in TITLE, then choose a cute or meaningful book cover and then POST it.

The book I chose is called Julie and Julia: My Year of Cooking Dangerously! A book about a woman, who keeps a blog, and decided the rat race wasn't fulfilling her passion for life. So she quit and started cooking! Sounds pretty familiar to me!

And I just couldn't resist posting one more video clip from The Carol Burnett Show. Last one I promise. A Classic!


Blessing of the day: I'm blessed because of groceries. I'm blessed because I can afford to go shopping, blessed because I am capable of bringing the groceries into the house and blessed that my father taught me how to cook.

Good Morning Julie,
That book sounds pretty neat. I did the book thing the other day, but there were so many Karen books that I didn't have time to go through all of them. There were over 1200 of them. The ones that I did see, I didn't really care for. When I have more time I might go back and do some more researching. LOL It sure is cold here this morning. It is 32 degrees right now. I haven't had much sleep, so I'm drinking coffee to try to stay awake for a while. I just always loved watching Carol Burnett. Then there was Mama's Family. I just loved that show also. Well take care my friend and have a great Friday. God Bless You.

Hugs,
Karen H.

Last one! Oh no! lol... Love getting this great laugh first thing in the morning... starts the day out right!
Sounds like a really great book! Like I said, I waded through a lot of weird stuff before I found a good book... and it was a kid's book at that.. lol
Have a great day!

Kristen said...

Sounds like a great book Julie! I am going to be posting mine tomorrow. Mine was a bit difficult. I did find a few though. What a blessing the holiday season is! I am feeling totally in the Christmas Spirit! :) Have a GREAT DAY!!!

I have watched that over and over again when I first discovered it on Utube. I also found out I could watch my little brother and my favorite cartoons from Bugs Bunny on there too. He and I sat online one night laughing our heads off watching them. My mother said we forgot to grow up. YEP!

Have a wonderful weekend Julie and stop by my blog to sign up for my birthday give~away.

I remember when this book came out. The author had cooked her way through the entire Julia Child cookbook. She compared the things she learned in the recipes with lessons she was learning in life. Food as Life--yep, makes sense to me.

joan said...

Cute idea Julie! I'l have to check it out. Have a great weekend!

joan said...

Okay, one more comment. I have my baby granddaughter here and whenever your Christmas music plays on my computer she starts to dance. Too funny!

OH and the only books that bear my name are those trash steamy paperback novels...

I think I'm changing my name to something like
Mother Teresa...HA!!
or Alton which suits me better...
I'm not sure..

First thought...I wish I were blessed to live closer to your kitchen, LOL! Okay, I couldn't help it. I just imagine all of the cozy lovely meals that you put together in your home and I find myself needing pasta more than anything. Hope you are having a wonderful day dear Julie.

Hugs,
Dena

Oh Julie: I was reading your blog when a friend called. I could hardly speak to her because I was laughing so hard from the video clip. I sure hope it is NOT your last one. I love the Carol Burnett crew. I already told you I saw Vicki Lawrence a few months ago. Thanks for the belly laugh.

Auld Hat said...

Great idea. I'm totally stealing it. I choose, "The Magic Hat" by Mem Fox. WOOHOO!

jp said...

Here's the funny thing: After your Tim and Harvey clip yesterday, I went out to YouTube and did a search and watched EVERYTHING, including the clip you posted today. See what you started?

Farmgirl Cyn said...

I read the book last year...irreverent, but very funny. I loved it...but then, I love Julia!

T*mmy said...

I was wondering when anyone would get around to "writing" about blogging...lol! I'll have to look that book up!
Thanks for sharing that and the CB clip...loved it!

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Oh, just listen to that Christmas music. If I get sidetracked I can always come over here to get some holiday cheer for decorating. I love, love the Carol Burnett show. I really miss those old days of TV when things were SO much better. The drivel that's on these days is just pathetic. That was a great show, when entertainment was really funny.

xo,
Rhoda

PEA said...

Glad to see you do the book meme...I did it with the name PEA and found a really cute book. lol Thank you so much for making me laugh tonight:-) xox

Cottage Contessa said...

I have got as far as finding a book with my name on it, but I keep forgetting to post about it! Does anyone have the remote to switch my brain back on please?! lol BTW, my sister-in-law is Julie as well, but everyone calls her Jules. Do you ever get Jules too?

justabeachkat said...

Okay, I'm laughing to hard to type. Wait a sec....LOL...just one more sec....okay, I'm in control now. I think. Love those clips. What a way to start the day. I just wrote my post about laughter. It really is the best medicine.

I'll go and see if I can find a book for me.

Have a wonderful weekend sweet friend.

Hugs!
Kat

Oh, this sounds like fun. I'll have to do it this week. I picked up this book at Borders a few weeks ago, and almost bought it. Have you read it?
