From the Bean to the Queen…Two friends, seperated by an ocean and a lot of land. Beani lives and works in Uganda; Queeni lives and works in London. Here they can pretend the distance isn't really there and talk about red wine, and boys, and leopard print shoes, and Glee, and art, and gothic feminism, and red wine, and cheap jewellery, and cheese, and Buffy, and red wine, and Shakespeare, and Guiness, and chilli squid, and fashion, and red wine. It's the digital equivalent of a good ole natter. Shall we get another bottle...?
