For the last two weeks all the talk in this town has been tennis, tennis, tennis. But now the evenings of five-set matches that stretch long into the night (or not) are behind us and it's time to change the conversation.
So here is a list of items that are so HOT!* right now:
1) Melbourne. Melbourne is so HOT!** right now.
2) Shaun Tan. Shaun Tan is so HOT! right now. Was it only last month we announced that it was finger-crossing time because Shaun Tan's The Lost Thing had been short-listed for an Oscar nomination? Why yes, it was. And unless you've been hiding from the heat under some kind of rock, you'll know by now that all that finger-crossing was worth it - behold! Herewith the list of nominees for the 83rd Academy Awards featuring in the category of Short Film (Animated) is:
"The Lost Thing" Shaun Tan and Andrew Ruhemann
Go little Lost Thing, go!
3) Tarte tatin. Tarte tatin is so HOT! right now.
Well, not so much right now, but the little shallot, potato and goat's cheese tarts, they were HOT! and OH SO UNBELIEVABLY TASTY! when the Cake-Maker Virtuoso brought them into the House as a special birthday treat for an Onion who swings savoury rather than sweet. Oh my, you can tart it up any time, C-MV!
