Champagne Dreams & Caviar Wishes


Julie went to Hollywood,
where life was a bad dress rehearsal.

Ten years later, my terrible fortunes
needed some major reversal.

After pitching an R-rated comedy,
A big studio finally wanted me!

Yup, meet the new Julie, now under contract to Universal!

  15. WELL, HOT DAMN! Congratulations Julie, and I knew you'd do it. Now as a UCLA film school alum, you must now grace my 434 with tales about "taking" meeting and laughing with Jake G at a Universal invite only party (deep in the Hollywood Hills of course). LOL!

    Fantastic news. So good to see talent and energy and sheer bloody-mindedness paying off. Ten years is a huge chunk of life and I hope every second of doubt and frustration is paid back and with interest. Okay, you've hitched the ride, when you stop for a break, let us know where you are and how you're doing. Where's the Moet?

  26. Elliott, you're breaking my heart. Phone home, babe.

    Seriously though I'm overhwhelmed by all your nice thoughts. There has to have been some kind of blogspheric karma at play. I promise I will find something new and hilarious to whine about. I sense the whining has only just begun, only whine tastes better with money. From what I hear.

  27. OK. I think it's time for your commenteers to sing a different tune from Chorus Line:

    One
    singular sensation...

    It's like this: If I tell you I have a hunch a rooster cal pull a freight train, you should hook one up.

    Congrats. Now the fun begins.

    Marvellous news!

    (Would you hurt me if I said I'd enjoyed your poignant, sharp and perspicacious writing? I do hope not.)

    To echo someone else, "It's about damned time."

    The best of luck :-)

  41. Julie,

    That is AWESOME! You are truly sensational. Not to take any credit away from you, but I think it was my singing that clenched the job for you. Didn't I say that you'd get it? "God, I think I got it...."

    Knock 'em dead!

    Happy days are here again, the skies above are clear again. Let us sing a song of cheer again, Happy days are here again.

    EVERYBODY!

    Happy days are here again, the skies above are clear again . . .

    You deserve this. Not because you are briliant (though you are). Not because you can make me laugh and cry in the same paragraph (though you can). Not because you worked your ass off (though you did). You deserve it because you never gave up!

  43. OH MY GOD!!!! I AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU!!!

    I knew it was just a matter of time! Congrats!!!

  44. yay (and that's not just a small half-hearted yay like when you figured out how the Ctrl-C button worked, no this is a yay like when you check your lottery numbers and all 6 matched.) I am glad I came here for the Before, will continue to be here for the During and of course I'll still be here for the After. Congratulations.
