Changes to the blog design are slowly coming along. I'm having a hard time picking a style and color scheme, but I know if I don't like it I can always change it. That's the beauty in DIYing your blog instead of contracting it out to an actual designer - it may be more work, but it's really gratifying to know you did it all and can change it at any time (plus you save a butt load of money).
Day 25: If you could have dinner with anyone in history, who would it be and what would you eat?
I'm a major foodie (as my girth can attest), so the second half of this question is almost harder than the first. Though, I suppose I could let the what influence the who. That'd be an interesting way to think of it.
Hmm... who and what...
GOT IT! I think I'd love to have a late afternoon lunch with Julia Child. I think the woman was absolutely fabulous. She would be the perfect person for me to sit down and have a meal with - she was intelligent, hilarious, and loved food as much as I do.
If I could wish a little beyond the scope of the question, I think I'd not only like to have lunch with her, but I'd like to make lunch with her. What an experience it would be to visit her in Paris, go to the market with her to pick up ingredients, and then cook with her in the kitchen her husband lovingly constructed for his bride. Then to sit and eat with her, chatting and hearing stories about her time as a spy.
My hope is that we would eat whatever her favorite dish was. When a chef is making their favorite food, a side of them comes out that is just so enjoyable. It's like watching an artist paint a portrait of their beloved mother. As long as the meal is served with a glass of wine, a baguette, and some fresh butter... she could feed me shoe leather and I'd be on cloud nine.
But how do I come up with a relevant photo to this post? Oh, well there was that one time...
You see, Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett died on June 25th, 2009, which just so happened to be my 23rd birthday. So for my 24th birthday I was going to have a party and I wanted it to be fun. That's when I remembered that two celebrities died on my birthday the year before, so throwing class to the wind, I had a "Dead Celebrities" themed birthday party.
My celebrity of choice was Julia Child. And I totally forgot about this party until I was about to make this post and realized I didn't have a photo to go with it. So above you'll see me (in a wig) as Julia Child, complete with the pearls, the rag tucked into my apron, and the 3 Gourmand badge.
In case you're curious, other guests at the party included Charlie Chaplin (who was mistaken for Hitler a couple times), Audrey Hepburn, Bernie Mac, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, Brittany Murphy, and Jimmy Dean - the sausage tycoon. And yes, that's Michael Jackson on my birthday cake. Nothin' but love, MJ!
