I'm Nippers: 18, single, and a Film student. I live with Kiki, my best friend of (count 'em) twelve years somewhere in the south of the north eastern bit of Australia. She's 18 and single too, but she's a Medical student. It's a good thing I'm friends with her because one of us will probably end up poor and alone in a ditch, and it won't be the doctor one, I can tell you.
Them twelve years started back home in England- er, twelve years ago. Obviously. We come from Manchester, to be precise- and don't say 'Manchester United' in that awful dim drone of vacant recognition: for one thing, we're City supporters, and for another, we hear that so much it's enough to make you want to bend the rules of physics and chew your own ear off. We were at primary school together there, and to cut a long story short, there was a lot of back and forth-ing between England and the Land Down Under until eventually we ended up living together in Australia for a bit in our school days- and now here we are in pretty much the same situation at Uni.
Mostly we're here to drink tea and keep a record of all the stupid things we've said or done, because maybe one day we'll be in need of a story to tell the grandkids, and the dementia will be making life difficult. So if you happen to stumble across this blog, and you like what you read: Congratulations! You have the maturity level of our postulated future grandchildren!
