Heat, Tangled, an outfit and risotto

As Rob Thomas sang in '99, it's a hot one, like seven inches from the midday sun. It was almost 40 degrees yesterday and was forecast for 40 today - thankfully it didn't reach 40.

To escape the heat yesterday I saw Tangled at the cinema.
It was nice, but to be honest, I didn't love it as much as others who recommended it to me. All through the movie I kept thinking that there should be a cinema just for adults who want to watch kids' movies, because quite frankly, the screaming kids were annoying. I also wondered how Rapunzel's hair didn't snag on things, and wondered what shampoo she uses to keep her hair so strong (I imagine her diet is full of salmon and eggs). I was mesmorised by Rapunzel's hair. Especially when it was braided like this:
When I was six, my doctor wanted to know what my dream was. It was to have long hair. When I was about 23, my hospital files were transferred from the Royal Children's Hospital to the Royal Melbourne Hospital, and we flicked through the files. My doctor read out my dream at six years old. And now, at 29, I want to have a braid like Rapunzel's. A quick google shows me you can buy a wig like her's. Hmmmm... ;)

I also saw a lot of Big Day Out goers. It would have been extremely hot for them. As I drove home late at night, I saw a lot of limosines to pick up the rockstars. I can usually hear the BDO from my bedroom, but wasn't so lucky yesterday.

I drove home late at night as I had been to see Steve Poltz again. I will write about it tomorrow. For now, here's a picture.
This is what I wore to work today. I was prepared for the searing heat and the chill of the office.
I have had this dress for about two years, never worn until today. It is a good dress for a hot day. I received many compliments on it (thanks everyone). It's from Target, and my shoes are Steve Madden, my headband is Mimco and my necklace is Oh Deer.

And I am cooking a delicious vegetarian risotto right now, with these ingredients.

It is on the stove now - I don't believe in standing over the saucepan stirring risotto. Off to shower now and then to watch myself on No Limits.

Stay cool.


  1. I love Rapunzel's braid!! So pretty with the flowers. Sounds like you had a great day yesterday and a lovely day today despite the heat. Enjoy your risotto!!

  2. So you didn't see Black Swan then! ;)

    It's stinking hot up here too - 38 today, 37 tomorrow, and much the same for the rest of the week, but with increasing degrees of humidity. DOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!

  3. I agree with the heat!! It was about 33 degrees here. Not as hot though, so I can't really complain ;) I was actually just thinking of making a mushroom risotto today, so thanks for reminding me! Cute dress :) :)

  4. Great dress, Carly!

    It is So Summer. Hope you are not wilting in the heat. It is driving me nuts in Sydney. I sleep in front of the open sliding doors in the lounge room sometimes also with the air conditioner on. Bad, I know.
