Spooky

Nikita the Spooky and I met up recently in her Newtown flat to have a chat and take some photos for Capital magazine, out now. My word limit was too small and while I told of her menagerie of men and her circus feats, I couldn’t possibly cram in all of the tales and tidbits. So here’s some room for the spill over. We talked about the fact that she spent all the money she won in high school for best vocalist at Rock Quest on a pair of turtles. And also the fact that Newtown is her favourite suburb. Ever. We talked about the buzz she feels walking down the street because it’s our generation’s time. I marveled over her bountiful lemon tree and she danced for me in the weakened winter sun.
