Envy...

Nick Cave performing at All Tomorrow's Parties in Sydney in January this year. Picture pinched from the Sydney Morning Herald Good Weekend magazine, August 1st, 2009.

"There's not a thing about old age I recommend... Those glorious cardinal sins are taken away from you till you're left with nothing but envy."

I realise this isn't part of my unusual 3 sheets style, but hey, we're all 3-dimensional characters with loads of quirky bits. One of my quirks is I'm a big Nick Cave fan. I was just sitting out on the back deck in the sun reading the papers and this wonderful quote made me laugh out loud. I went to this concert in January at the Riverstage in Brisbane... what a performer. I've never seen someone be so generous with their audience. He's such a rock god! :)

Oh, Nick Cave. Yum. Have you read And the Ass Saw the Angel? I started it probably 10 years ago and never finished.

Dear Nick,

I want to have your babies. Hope this is not too much to ask. And if you don't mind, please don't tell my husband...

All my rock star love,
Christina

PS. I saw you in Brisbane with my hubby (then boyfriend) and I don't think he suspected a thing...
