I went to camp in Pierrefonds a few years ago. Lats, first camp. I'd never been before, so I went one day. The TQS camera guy and some dude with a mic were walking right towards me, I totally choked. I don't know if I'd of been braver in English, but the nervousness of doing that, having to do it in French when already scared, I took a few quick steps into the crowd and let him find some other fool.

lol. Worst thing for an interview, and I speak from experience, is dry-mouth. And having to speak Spanish. So now, I get really drunk beforehand and ... problem solved!

I was actually interviewed by the local paper a few weeks ago. Of course, there was a twist. A photographer was here to see my wife about an ad her store was doing, and as she wasn't home, I was just chatting with her, when the dog starting barking at her.

She told me that they were doing a feature on dogs, the angle being that they'd photograph the dogs, and interview them, with theowner actually answering,doing the part of the dog. I figured what the hell, I'd be a wimp to say no, so I was actually in the Straight Talk section of the Glengarry News, playing the part of Lenny The Beagle.

Somehow, I thought life would've turned out differently, but I enjoyed it, and Lenny seemed proud.

Did she get a pic of you having a leak on one of her car's tires? And, just to stay on topic, do you think we could get a pic of Benoit Brunet doing that on Pierre's car?

My nieces think I look like Brunet but I disagree. What I remember is that she had to lean forward to get a good angle for the picture, so, of course I looked. She was about my age, but I figure, like Jerry and George said, 'you have to look'.

I forget to tell my wife about that part.

It was just a series of dogs with them supposedly saying why their masters chose them. The answers were pretty well all 1-2 lines. I went with something, ''Cause I'm so friggin' cute, just look at me, a body like mine, how could they not keep me ?' She altered my language a bit, removed friggin' and body. I was going to sue but AD wouldn't cut me a deal.

I get the picture. "Lenny was so cute and he never stopped wagging his cute little tail at me".

If she went that far, I think I might've sued. My first instinct was to say that no one else would've been stupid enough to take me, but self preservation kicked in.
