Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 16-8-2017: Strike A Pose

I have to admit, I’m back to work, today.

I’m looking forward to it, frankly.

But … ?

I’m also very aware that I stayed in, last night: watching a movie.

Ghost in the Shell, so you know.

Hmmm … 

It’s got to be said, it’s a great looking thing.

I’m not convinced it’s a good film, though.

It’s  a bit of a mess, frankly.


Ghost in the Shell: Hmmm … 

15th August, 2017

You know, I HAVE to confess to having had the night off, tonight.

You’d possibly worked that out, hadn’t you?

After all, I’ve only been complaining about the way my work hours go up and down like a yoyo, for some time.

This week?   Sees me on very short hours: but next week, sees them going back up.

Leaving me with little money, later … 

But plenty of time, now.

Unoccupied time.

Time I can watch a a TV show: although I’ve caught a few of them.

Or maybe go out.   Not enough cash, frankly.

Or … ?

Rent a film: something I’ve been meaning to do for a while.

I’ve a few films sitting on an extra hard drive on my MacPro, waiting to be watched.

But fancied something new.

It didn’t take long to find something I fancied see: mostly because of the whitewashing argument about the film.

Was it worth it, though … ?

Hmmm …

Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 15-8-2017

Now, I wonder who that was … ?

I had the night off, last night.

Which is nice: I managed to catch the last two episodes of season 1 of The Man in the High Castle.

Which is quite the series, I think I can say.

At any rate?

At about nine?   Just when I was starting to watch episode 10?

The phone went off: which I initially ignored.

It kept ringing … 

I kept ignoring it: after all, I’ve had too many missed calls from people selling me solar panels!

When I finally decided to head over to the phone, to pick it up and SEE who it was?

They rang off.

After making sure they phoned me, from their withheld phoned number.

I get the feeling they’re shy, whoever they were … 


The Man in the High Castle — Series 1 — Episodes 9 and 10: Kindness and A Way Out

14th August, 2017.

Oh, I hate that when that happens …

You get a phone call … from a withheld number!

And right in the middle of things!

I’m JUST wondering if it was work: calling me in to say I’d misread my rota.

Or possibly regular contributor, Debbi Mack: who I know’s been meaning to try and call for a while.

Blowed if I know!

They withheld their number!

Don’t you just hate that … ?

There’s a couple of upsides, though.


If it wasn’t Debbi or work, it could WELL have some bloody idiot in a call centre, somewhere.

Trying to sell me a boiler.   Or help me with a PPI claim.   Or tell you their records show my PC is working slowly.

Anyone who knows me will tell you that me and the several Macs I’ve had AREN’T going to fall for that one!

The other upside … ?

Was that it didn’t spoil my evening.

Not with the last two episodes of series one of The Man in the High Castle involved it didn’t …

Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 14-8-2017

You know, there are time … when I wonder if the World Wide Web is joking.


I was wondering about, yesterday morning: whilst typing up the Left Hander’s Day post.

And searched for biblical quotes about left handedness: thinking something about the people of Beth-thingy smiting their enemies in Jeroba-do-dah, using their left hands, would look suitably impressive.

I found this page: advising people to stop being left handed on pain of being sent to hell.

I’m seriously damned … 

… if I know whether whoever posted the bloody thing is joking.

I’m left handed myself.

I’d imagine that most women, anyone gay, anyone of an Afro-Carribean background, spotting something like that?

Wouldn’t be sure, either.

And, like me?

Would be feeling vaguely offended: serious or otherwise.
