I made this Creamy Lime Tart with Shortbread Crust because I thought the bang and clang of pots and pans would be preferable to the whomp whomp of the helicopters hovering over my house.
Welcome to the sights (and sounds) of 84th annual Academy Awards from the grumpy perspective of someone who lives nearby. Closed streets, throngs of onlookers cruising the neighborhood looking for a place to park, and those damn news choppers who seem to think they might spot George Clooney clandestinely sneaking out my back door. Why else would they hover directly over my house. Do they need me to point out that the venue (formerly known as The Kodak Theatre) is down the hill and to the right?
Well that is just the price we pay living in the hills of this glamorous city on the most glamorous of days. The entertainment industry is a fact of life in Los Angeles and I don’t really mean to whine about it. But really I am just a little embarassed. You see when George said he “would love to eat such good pie” I thought he said he “would love to beat that French gadfly”… so I asked him to leave and to use the back door.
But you really can’t blame me. Who can hear a thing over the whomp whomp of helicopters? GREG
