Jim: Glenn’s face and dress sense.
Glenn: Jim’s stocky build and the shape of his head.
Jim: That Glenn is kind-hearted.
Glenn: Jim’s sense of humour.
Jim: Selecting interiors!
Glenn: Being comfortable playing the supporting act (sometimes) in social situations.

In 10 years we will be…
Exploring the world together using Melbourne as our home base, with maybe a couple of fur babies.
Jim: Show your crazy up front.
Glenn: If the crazy is real, get the hell outta there.
