If only it was the thought that counted

So I just finished reading Julie & Julia, by Julia Powell. Its a fun read and I would recommend it. Although almost everything she described cooking sounded completely disgusting (things cooked with bone marrow and cubes and cubes of butter) and I probably wouldn't have wanted a dinner invitation, I am in love with this woman for doing what she did. OK I would have come over for the tart fest.
It motivates me to finish my 50 before 50 list cause right now thats as big as I can go. But I want to get it in print and get moving on it, so that next June I can sit back, preferably on the steps of the Uffizzi, and feel a sense of accomplishment along with a warm pastry in my pocket.
Wish me luck.
