Happy Chrissiehyndeday

Ohhhh... this is an exciting day. It's a milestone for one of my icons. Chrissie Hynde is 60, betch. I'm so crazy about this woman!!! Let's quote her, shall we? 

"I was never too interested in high school. I mean, I never went to a dance, I never went out on a date, I never went steady. It became pretty awful for me. Except, of course, I could go see bands, and that was the kick. I used to go to Cleveland just to see any band. So I was in love a lot of the time, but mostly with guys in bands that I had never met. For me, knowing that Brian Jones was out there, and later that Iggy Pop was out there, made it kind of hard for me to get too interested in the guys that were around me. I had, uh, bigger things in mind."

Happy birthday, Chrissie. I will slap the hell out of you if we ever meet. I don't care if I get arrested, either. It would totally be worth it. It would also make for a great story. 

"Yes, I was arrested once... for assaulting Chrissie Hynde."

Wait, that actually doesn't sound fabulous at all. It sounds kind of creepy. But I love slapping. Sigh. I won't give up the dream.
