Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 18-1-2017

I’m going to have to stop doing that, I really am … !

I’ve just literally fed the phrase ‘I’m a Banana,’ into Google.

Why … ?

What can I tell you, I had a weird moment.

I got a weird moment in return.

No, really.

Here … 


Quite why someone wrote ‘I’m a Banana,’ I don’t know.

It actually seems odder than Googling the phrase in the first place.

Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 17-1-2017

Every-so-often?   I’ll get an early night.

And, by contrast?

Every-so-often, I’ll get a late night.

Last night was one of the latter, I think.

Basically, where I got home from work … 

To the fact I’d recording last night’s episode of Storyville: which was all about the Stuxnet virus.

Which, back in 2010?   Managed to seriously damaged Iranian nuclear manufacturing plants.

I’d known the thing was out there, by the way.

But seeing a documentary about it?

Was certainly something I fancied seeing.   So last night’s StoryvilleZero Day: Nuclear Cyber Sabotage — was a welcome treat.

And one I found help my one, limited, lay understanding of a complicated subject.

AND was an interesting cyber-espionage story, too*.

Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 16-1-2017

Well, that was the early night had … 

I have to admit, there’s days — like yesterday — when I really feel a night in — or lie in, in the morning — is just the thing.

Which I’ve — effectively — managed to do, today.

After getting to bed, last night?   At about eleven.

Frankly?   Well, I don’t know about you, but I had the finale of Sherlock on, whilst I was writing.

And … ?

Hmmm … 

Interesting little episode, that: dead supervillains, live supervillains, half a ton of violin playing, explosions, video recordings of Moriarty … 

And the unveiling of a third Holmes sibling, Eurus Holmes.

Talk about an interesting twist.

Eurus is the missing Holmes family psychotic.

Like I say … interesting … 

Now … 

Does anyone else think Andrew Scott’s take on Moriarty comes over like Graham Norton’s evil twin … ?

Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 15-1-2017

*Yawns* … 

It’s a Sunday morning.

And, of course, I’m back to work: due to start an eleven.

Why tell you this … ?

Well, I’m felling vaguely confessional, to be honest.

And frankly?

Wanted to let you know I’m tired.


Once I’m home, tonight … ?

I’m looking forward to getting an early night.

Well … that … 

And a (metaphorical) lie in …

Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 14-1-2017

That’s a thought: one that started bothering me, last night.

Bits of paper … 

Bits of paper, right?   Keep that in mind, ok.

I work in a call centre: and, at the end of each calm, try and make sure the caller walks away with the call reference number.

That way?   If they want or need to chase up the call, later, they can quote the number, and we can look it up, much more quickly.

During those initial calls?

One of the last things I do … ?

Is ask people if they have a pen and a piece of paper.

So they can write that reference number down.

What always surprises me?

Is the amount of people who need to go and find a pen: which is understandable, you can never find one when you need one.

And on top of that?

The amount of people who can never find a piece of paper.

Surprising?   Yes, of course it’s surprising.

I’m both human … and a man.

And, like a lot of men, I’ve got a wallet.

With half a ton of receipts in it: that I never get around to throwing away.

You can’t in all honesty, tell me you can’t find a piece of paper … !

Oy veh!
