Nothing to be jealous of…

Madman posted recently that he was ‘surprised’ at the amount of activity to the blog right after I posted my first post after a several year hiatus. Really, there isn’t anything to be jealous of. People like variety in their diet. I know when I eat the same thing daily, like salads, there comes a time that I just crave a double cheeseburger or whole chocolate cake. The readers just simple wanted a little variety added to their diet.

Also, he doesn’t realize that I visited the blog from different computers to see what my post looked like. Yep, it was just as cute on every screen. Thanks Hon!

Site stats and posting frequency

I update the site every three days. Heather makes one post after a two year break. Observe which one gets the most attention:

13 Months Today

Today is the 13 Month Anniversary of my MadMania blog! To be honest, I’m kind of surprised I have stuck with it this long, but I’m enjoying it now more than when I started.

Thank you to everyone who tunes in to see what I’m rambling about.

Review: Julie & Julia

julie-juliaI just finished staying up with Heather watching Julie & Julia, a 2009 movie about two women: Julie Powell, as she spends a year cooking her way through all the recipes in Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking while¬†living in post-9/11 New York with her husband. It also tells the story of Julia Child, living in post-WWII France with her husband, learning to cook and to write and publish said book.

I really, really liked this movie. I know, some of you are probably thinking this is a chick flick, and in some ways it is. However, this movie was about a lot of things I love: eating, cooking, writing, blogging, books, and being married. How can you not love a movie about food and marriage? I freaking love both, and consequently loved the movie.

However, the ending does seem kind of incomplete and anticlimactic, kind of like they brought in Zombie Michael Chrichton to write it for them. SPOILER ALERT: if you think the two women are going to meet you are going to be disappointed.

Speaking of cooking, I made my second attempt at pasta sauce this week, and I was very happy with it (much better than last week’s mediocre maiden sauce).

Also speaking of things in the movie that I can relate to in real life, like the protagonist I am staying up doing one thing when I should be doing another. Good night.
