The Brentwood Gazette’s Weekly Teaser — 26-11-2014: The Heist

Oooohhhh, but that’s nice … !

Being able to sit down, that is.

In case you didn’t know … ?

I’ve recently started a new job: only a part time, at a local KFC.

But, after four years of being on the dole … ?   It does feel good to be back at work.

Good … 

But knackering, after an ⓧ hour shift … !


The Daily Teaser — 26-11-2014

Bleugh … !

And DOUBLE bleugh … !

Or possibly even triple bleugh … 

Did I tell you I was working, yesterday … ?

I didn’t … ?   I was working, yesterday.

Quite a long shift, actually.

With the net result that, this morning … ?   I am definitely felling my age,

And leg muscles.

And lower spine.

And feet.

And … well, you get my drift …

The Daily Teaser — 25-11-2014

You know, I’ve got to admit, I’m looking forward to work, tonight.

No, really!

I’m a little worried, though.

After all, it’s a seven hour shift: which means I’m going to be in no fit state, first thing in the morning.

Still … ?

The upside to this means I can get a few things done in the meantime: the inevitable bits of paperwork that have to get handed in, a few teasers to write, what have you.

Hopefully … ?

Hopefully, I’ll get a few emails in, too …

The Daily Teaser — 24-11-2014

Now, that was nice to see, last night.

Bless, the BBC’s been doing a science-fiction season over the past few days.

And, while I think I’ve already seen most of the films they’re airing as part of this … ?

It’s nice to see that they’re ALSO repeating they 1981 version of John Wyndham’s The Day Of The Triffids.

To be frank … ?

To be frank, I know the Triffids themselves are — arguably — ropey.

But I personally think this version’s on a par, if not better, than the 2009 version: that took a few liberties with the text I felt were unjustifiable.

Either way … ?

I also think it’s worth an evening of your time.

The Daily Teaser — 23-11-2014

Well, that’s something.

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I live in a small Essex town, called Brentwood: best known, to some, as home to The Only Way Is Essex.

A town that used to — but now doesn’t — have a cinema.

I, personally, like the the idea of living in a town with a cinema: and have written about  Brentwood Council’s attempt to get one built for some time.

I added another post to the pile, last night: mostly about how I’d sent a letter to cinema chains, to see what size cinema they’d find viable.

Hopefully, I’ll hear back, soon.

Either way?   Either way, I should thank Old Peculiar regular, Debbi, and everyone else who commented on the post, last night: Mike, Terrence and Dave.

Now … Let’s move on …
