    Tim Minchin is a GOD!

    He’s also incredibly funny. Especially if you are an open-minded alternative type person who isn’t religious and doesn’t mind swearing. He does musical comedy, which is a strange thing that we get in Australia and I don’t know if people in other places do it the same way.

    He’s the son of friends of my parents. I grew-up up the road from their house. I went to school with his sister. He’s only a couple of years older than me, and coming from almost exactly the same background makes our life views very similar.

    If he tours in the US again and goes to Chicago, try to see him. He’s brilliant.

    I would also suggest looking up his songs “Prejudice” and “If I didn’t have you”. Not serious sweet songs like “White Wine”, but awesomely hilarious.

    Hope you and your family have a wonderful holidays, and try not to freeze. *hugs*

    What a small world! I hope he comes to Chicago, I’d love to catch the show.
    Hope that you had a wonderful holiday as well (did *you* have white wine in the sun?)

    And have a Happy New Year.
