As promised, I’ve dug through the archives! I’m not going to play all of my cards at once of course, but I’ve got one photo from 2002 and another from 2003. It’s hard to believe there’s only a year between the photos, but it’s true! This is… I think… the day before a big party. A party that I have photos of… but I’m not going to share!

I know this blog is hardly ‘old’, but looking at the stats, about two thirds of you will have never seen it! (It’s only 25 days into September and the blog has just broken 100,000 page views for the month — when this blog post first appeared, in March 2009, there were 40,000 page views a month.)

Today, Tuesday, is the first of a few limited-edition one-off ‘specials’. You know, like those episodes of Mythbusters where they go to Siberia, or borrow a bunch of high-grade military weapons. Each of these specials will focus on a particular aspect of I, Sebastian, normally featuring some kind of retarded dressing up. You see, being a roleplayer and an actor, and having a mother that is also an actor and a massive, charismatic extrovert, I often end up in some…
