‘Bizarre’ Profile in the Huffington Post

Many thanks to my childhood pal Bob Elisberg for this charming profile of my “bizarre” life in the Huffington Post.

    This was great! You do have an unusual juxtaposition of two careers. Not sure if I’d call it “bizarre” but it’s certainly unique as far as I know, and there is definitely a movie in there– mild-mannered (well, enthusiastic, outspoken) Movie Mom in the darkened movie theater, fiercely dedicated stockholder defender in the cold corporate daylight…
    By the way, I loved how you combined the two when you were interviewed for CNN, I think, about how Apple handled the disclosure of Steve Jobs’ illness. You described Steve Jobs as Apple’s “Mickey Mouse” !!! I wondered how he felt about that. I thought it was an apt description, although perhaps not the icon he with which he might have preferred to be compared…
    Thanks for all you do in both of your careers!

    Don’t mention it, Nell. I envy your degree of “self-actualization.” BTW, I finally saw “Julie and Julia,” and you were right – Meryl Streep’s performance was great! The scenes with showing her and her husband in France were endlessly fascinating to me.
    I wonder if the reason a lot of people don’t like the “Julie” section as much as that it seems “second-hand” compared with Julia Child’s achievements. Not so much parasitical on her achievement, but it seems like we don’t “do” direct experience much anymore. (The lip-synching pop bands, the new Beatles Rock Band Game, etc.)
    Perhaps the idea that an ordinary person like Julie Powell’s blog and rather modest achievement (granted, I don’t think I could do it) is worthy of a best-selling book and movie is what rankles with some critics. On the other hand, the comparison between the two stories is what provides a lot of the interest of the movie.
