Day 196 - No Breadstick For You!

Day 196.

Even after 196 viewings, the one scene in Julie & Julia that always baffles me is the "No Breadstick For You!" scene.

You know the one I'm talking about--Julie and her friends are enjoying their ritual Cobb Salad Lunch, when all of Julie's super successful important friends suddenly feel the need to simultaneously whip out their cell phones/recording devices in order to demonstrate how super successful and important they are.

Look at how successful and important we are--we own electronic devices!

Julie, who apparently does not have a reason to be on her cellphone and is thus clearly neither successful, nor important, is left with nothing to do at this point. Naturally, she gravitates toward the vase (?) of breadsticks in the middle of the table.

Everything seems to be progressing smoothly, right? Julie gets to eat her breadstick in peace, right? WRONG.


(note the terrified look on Julie's face)

When Julie Powell woke up this morning, she thought she was going to go to lunch with her best friends. And maybe while she was there, she would get to munch on her favorite food, breadsticks. She hadn't come to expect much of her superficial friend group, but at least they would let her eat what she wanted.

Well, not if Cassie would have anything to do with it.

Seriously though--what the fuck??? Why did Cassie do that? As much as I hate her, I do believe that Julie Powell can make her own goddamn choices. She doesn't need anyone telling her what she can or cannot eat. And she really does not deserve to be treated like a fucking child.

To quote Julie herself, "I am not (Juli) a Child."

So fuck you, Cassie. Mah name is Julie Powell and Imma eat whateva I want.
