The Daily Teaser — 22-5-2012

Oh, weird … !

You remember, yesterday, I said about feeling tired … ?

Strangely, today, even though I’ve had roughly the same amount of sleep, I’m actually feeling reasonably chipper.

Lord knows why.

But I think the fact I had Kevin D pop in on me, yesterday, AND managed to get the next few days worth of Teaser videos assembled.

Thanking you, Kevin and iMovie!

Actually … ?

Kevin, bless him is a bit of a wrestling fan: he’s helping organise a gig, Saturday night: I’ll have to get the poster up for him, later … !
