ZSA ZSA'S FINAL MOMENTS...

So the world's second largest economy is now China. Yeah well, this is not a big surprise I guess, since a lot of the junk we buy nowadays seems to be made there. Well, good for you China! Everyone around the world is racing to be like the United States and to mimic the standard of living we perfected, but I dunno if this is a good idea. I mean, it's overpopulated and if every human being is to live with all the comforts possible, I don't know if this planet can support it. They say the greatest most precious resource in the near future is going to be fresh water. Can you believe it? WATER! YIKES! And if ya look at the latest unemployment figures, they are horrendous! This is not a recession, and why they keep saying that is f*cking irritating. This is a major economic depression folks and even though I have a decent job at the moment, it annoys me to even go there. LOL! I spoke to someone recently and I had mentioned that I really felt America was going to collapse economically within the next few years simply because we are broke, but he proceeded to tell me I was a negative a**hole. AHAHAHHAHA! Yeah, maybe I am but then again I'm having a great year remember? Sometimes I really wish I was a cute little dog in a nice home without a true care in the world...

I watched a lot of Julia Child this weekend. My bud has these DVD's where she cooks up a storm with Jacques Pépin. I had no idea all this time that Julia was American; I thought for sure this woman was British, but she was born in Pasadena, CA of all places! WOW! She spoke funny. LOL! She was quite witty and charming too. Not a care in the world for the dishes to be health-conscious at all; the woman uses more butter and eggs than I could keep up with, but man did that food look GOOD! I say why not? Ya only live once right? Julia lived 91 years, not a bad run at all and she must've eaten some really damn good food during her lifetime. I have yet to see the Meryl Streep movie, but I will sometime soon I suppose.

To the late great silly Julia:

reason #1 i like you: you're a realist, and fuck your short-sighted idiot asshole friend who i can almost assure you will die dumb, broke and alone.

reason #2 i like you: great minds think alike [i.e., i'm currently listening to the audiobook version of julia child's "my life in france" i picked up from the sherman oaks library just last week--how fuckin' weird is that?]

Julia Child was a cookery genius. Be sure to pick up her book My Life in France, its a fun read. I love love love her. USed to watch her show The French Chef EVERY night as a little kid, after Mr Rogers, of course.

She had that funny accent from living in France...

The Julie/Julia movie is cute fun. And Meryl is a genius, of course. Any part she plays, she is dead-on in capturing the real person. After seeing the movie I did some research on Julia and she was a fascinating person. I think you would enjoy learning about her. She and her husband had a wonderful marriage, but their biggest disapointment was no children. I think he was ten years her senior, or something like that - but they were crazy about each other. Like I said, cute.

Yes.. she hailed from Ptown.. also this crazy bitch did NOTHING for millions of Americans as she contributed to their obesity, heart disease, colon cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure and a potpourri of other maladies that hit a lot of people much younger than she was when she died. The idea of protein being so essential is a myth.. and so hard on the kidneys.. not to mention all the cholesterol that went with it.

Is it any wonder then...

On August 13, 2004, Julia Child died of kidney failure at her assisted-living home in Montecito.

Hail Butterball! Thanks for nothin.
