Check out that lovely basset hound! In the wonderful world of The Triangle today,directly outside my living room, was a dog show raising money for Bourne Free – our local pride festival.
A few friends came down for it and we all grinned like morons for the afternoon.
So. Many. Pugs. Evidence of pug-overdosing after the break.
I thought I would tell a story about a time I did something very silly and got to watch it blow up beyond all comprehension. At the time I was very worried about either the subject, his fans or the press hounding me so I removed my connection to it. Today I reveal that I am in fact, Stevie Wotsit.
