American Horror Story — Series 1: Murder House Episode 4 and 5: Halloween Pt 1 and Halloween Pt 2

22nd June, 2017

Oh, now, I hate my guts.

In a manner of speaking.

I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Eat the wrong thing?   And I’m out of action.

Certainly — as tonight — off work!

Complete with assorted stomach cramps, the trots, heaps of pained expressions … 

You name it, I’ll have it.

OK, NOT THAT!!

Just to make it perfectly clear!

Although if you’ve got a corset that’ll fit me, I’ll think about it.

Ummm … 

This post seems to be getting away from me, doesn’t it … ?

Suffice to say, I’ve had an unexpected night off.

And … ?

And wanted to carry on with a box set I’d been watching.

You got it.

*Yawn* … 

I have to say, I think that shift, yesterday?

Was a bit much … 

I managed to grab something cheap and cheerful to eat, on the way to work.

Boy, I’m regretting that.

It caused serious havoc with my innards: for the first time in months … 

I hate that when it happens.

Yoicks … !

I’ve agree to going into work early today!

At the last minute!

Still, I can’t complain too much.

As I’ve ALSO bagged an extra shift on Sunday.

It all helps pay the bills!

I might even be able to afford a treat, this week!

Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 20-6-2017: Jaws

You know, there’s a lot of stuff that’s easy to do.

Really.

Painting walls.   Building huge, well designed, buildings.   Running marathons.

Doing them well, on the other hand?

Is a whole other matter.

One thing that’s easy to do — as I know from work — is typing errors.

Which I suspect might have something to do with one piece of news I saw, yesterday.

It’s seems a marketing firm working for the US Republican party has given access to 200 million people’s details: leaving it easily accessible on a public cloud server.

Those details?   Could easily be used to commit all sorts of cyber-crime.

For starters, you’ve a whole pile of names, addresses and phone numbers: complete with details on the person’s opinions, and preferences.

I’d imagine whoever’s gained access to that?   Will be wallowing in criminal opportunities.

I’m not sure for certain: but I’d imagine that sort of information is going to generate a lot of personalised phising emails!

According to the news?

The firm that held the data made a mistake with the accessibility settings: which meant anyone with the link could get to it.

Anyone.

But say they have since modified those settings.

I’m betting the reason the settings were the way they were?

Is because someone’s made a simple mistake: as simple, say, as accidentally picking the wrong item from a drop down menu.


It’s that simple, that easy … 

To cause a lot of issues …

Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 19-6-2017

What on Earth is going on in the UK?

I’ve woken up to news that, just after midnight, last night?

A van has been driven into a crowd of worshippers at Finsbury Park Mosque, injuring 10 and potentially killing one.

I know who I’m blaming.

The idiots that carried out the Westminster and London Bridge Attacks.

Apparently?   The driver of the van involved, was a white man reported to be saying he wanted to ‘kill all muslims.’

To me?

That sounds like an extreme right-wing … 

I’m tempted to say ‘nutter,’ there.

Instead I’ll call him an an extreme right-wing terrorist.

Personally?

I’m hoping we don’t get open war on the streets.

But I’m not surprised there’s been a backlash.

Britain’s got several fine old traditions.

But also got a nasty streak of racism that’s contributed to this.
