Why I love Julia….

I have loved Julia Roberts as stated several times, most recently in my Why God hates Santa rant. On Oprah the other day I watched her with Tom Hanks as they were plugging their new movie Charlie Wilson’s War . She is just the most refreshing person in hollyweird. I imagine that going to her …
