great white shark
me - oh dear...

Part-time genius Nicolette was born in the 70's and had a blissful three years until the parents decided to bring sister Marceline into the world. Things were very tense until a shared love of plastic tat brought them together.
As Marceline had decided to be the arty one, Nicolette took on the scientific role.
She plans to get a degree in Zoology at the University of Aberdeen, with great hopes to eventually become an Elasmobranchologist 'cos it sounds dead swanky, like. Though one feels it may not be particularly wise for someone who thought Jaws was "cute" to be around such creatures for any length of time.
She is also psychotically passionate about stationery, science, the Welsh language, icecream, sheep, boats and socialism, and wishes dearly to visit Antartica before settling down on the Isle of Cumbrae with some chocolate and ten tonnes of plastic tat.
Let's wish her well (though she's obviously mental - dearie me..).
