The Daily Teaser — 28-3-2015

You know I’m working at the moment, don’t you … ?

You didn’t?

I’m working at the moment.

Well, not literally, obviously … !

But I’m AM in employment: which is nice, after four years of job-hunting.

On the other hand … ?

On the other hand, I’ve seen my hours for next week.

I think I’ve got a lot of free time coming …

The Friday Question Set — 27-3-2015

You know, I’ve got to admit: I’m back working.

Or AT work, I should say.

Obviously, not right at the moment, it HAS to be said … !

At ANY rate, I’ve seen my hours for next week.   And I have to say, it looks like I’ve got a LOT of free time on my hands!

Can you do me a favour?

Remind me to go into Café Nero on Sunday: they’re having some sort of recruitment day!


The Daily Teaser — 27-3-2015: World Theatre Day

Blimey … 

You heard about the plane that crashed, on Tuesday … ?

I got watching the news, yesterday: after the voice recordings from the plane’s flight recorder got leaked by someone.

It turns out that the co-pilot — one Andreas Lubitz — locked the plane’s captain out of the flight deck, when the Captain went to the loo.

And then, in the words of the French investigator at yesterday’s big news-conference, sent the plane into a “deliberate descent.”

The investigator made a point that he “wasn’t calling it suicide,” as “that’s not what this is.”

According to some German newspapers, the chap suffered with depression.

Personally … ?

Personally, there’s few things that make me feel ill.

And personally?   I can understand deep depression: I’ve suffered with the condition, and those bleak moments can be VERY bleak, and force one to focus on NOTHING except oneself.

But still speaking personally … ?   I THINK I can understand feeling depressed enough to want to take  my own life.   Although I’ve not — thankfully — been there for a while.

But ill … ?   Yes.   The thought that someone could willingly take their own life — and those of 150 other people — has left me feeling decidedly queasy …

The Daily Teaser — 26-3-2015: Language Is A Computer Virus … 

Oh, now that’s a thing … !

Bless him, you may — or may not — have realised I’ve a four year old nephew: called Jude.

He’s got quite quite a daffy sense of humour, Jude.

And he’s getting older: which is life, I’m afraid.

But … ?

But one of the pleasure of watching a child grown, is seeing them learn things.

Bless him, I think we can say Jude’s learnt to write his name.

Or START to, anyway!

That’s … 

Well … 

That’s all good!

The Brentwood Gazette’s Weekly Teaser — 25-3-2015: The Queen Of Soul

Right … 

I’m feeling vaguely rushed, at the moment.

Basically … ?

Well, basically, I have something of a set routine: and like — on my days off — to get out of the house, at least once.


I’d like to pay a visit to Brentwood Library, today: just because … !

And possibly play a bit more, with the camera on my new phone.

At ANY rate … ?

I’m feeling vaguely rushed … 

As the library closes at one!
