Cheap lolz, swashbuckling romance and essay crises

Jenny is a frighteningly bright Philosophy student, Tim is her flirtatious slacker of a flatmate. Come here to follow the life adventures of these two absolutely not stereotypical Cambridge students. You'll learn very little in the process, but I'll get better at watercolour.

The Monkey Has a Name!

Thank you so much for the avalanche of names here and on Facebook following the plea from Tim's monkey to finally BE GIVEN A NAME!

There were so many great suggestions that I couldn't just pick one, so I picked my seven favourite of all:

Humphrey - by Mathilde
Hamilcar - by Audrey
Emmanuel - by Agathe
Bubbles - by Richard
Oscar - by Mathilde
Haiku - by Becca
Tennessee - by Françoise & Jonathan

Yes, Mathilde did have a slight advantage with two names picked, but she submitted tons and for that reason she deserves un gros bisou.

Having put all these wonderful names in a Celebrations box...

...I asked an innocent hand to pick one at random!

And after the tension of this crucial moment, the innocent hand finally chose one of the little blue papers, and all became clear:

The winner is...

Congratulations, Audrey! Send me an email with your postal address in it and your choice of prize (A, B, C or D). Ah, there's just one little thing you need to know about prizes A, B and C... unfortunately they're out of stock. Bad luck! still, you'll get the drawing.

A big thank you to everyone who took part in the contest!
