Lying In The Gutters – 21st May 2012

With the No Place Like Home crew at Kapow.

That was a fun weekend! And now I am sick. Clearly Mark Millar planted a virus to infect me. There can be no other explanation. Thanks to all those who came up to say hi, how much you loved the site and especially those who wanted photos. And then bought me drinks. It’s a really easy way to get on my good side! So what have you been reading this week?
