Famous folks lived here!

(Julia Child's house at 103 Irving St, via)
I was weirdly excited to find out uber-chef Julia Child once lived on Irving St, Cambridge, Massachusetts. I used to live a block away and lamely had NO idea it was this street.

(Julia Child's kitchen at the Smithsonian, via)
Julia Child's famous kitchen is now in the Smithsonian's Museum of American History. Wouldn't it be fun to see?

(Poet e.e. cummings birthplace at 104 Irving Street, via)
To make things more exciting, poet e.e. cummings lived on Irving St. too, across Julia Child's house! It was cool to walk by this sign one day. (Wasn't going to post it due to the graffiti, but oh well).

(To be really geeky, William James, pioneering psychologist & brother of novelist Henry James, also lived over at 95 Irving St.)

Have a great July 4th! In the spirit(s) of this post -- bon appetit, bon poetry reading, and bon deep thinking!

Did you not see the movie Julie & Julia? Meryl Streep played Julia beautifully and I loved all of the scenes that she did. As for the rest of the story....meh!
