Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 18-7-2017

You know … 

I’ve got a day off!

That that I’m planning much.

Bar visiting the opticians, of course.

I don’t think I mentioned it: but I had an eye test, last week.


Sees me getting my new reading glasses fitted.

Something to look forward to!

Well … 

That … and possibly more episodes of American Horror Story.

Although, frankly?

I’m looking forward to series four of The Strain!

I’m just hoping it hits iTunes, soon!


Let’s move on, shall we?

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Olga* and Debbi† putting in their answers: with both scoring five out of five.

Let’s see how everyone does with today’s questions, shall we?

Here they are, along with the How To, License and video …

I’ll leave you with a song …

And a thought …
“I pray every day and I think everybody should. I don’t think you can be up here and look out the window as I did the first day and look out at the Earth from this vantage point. We’re not so high compared to people who went to the moon and back. But to look out at this kind of creation out here and not believe in God is, to me, impossible. It just strengthens my faith.”
John Glenn, July 18, 1921 – December 8, 2016.
Today’s questions will be answered in tomorrow’s Teaser.

Have a nice day.

*        You’re right, there, Olga‡: THAT I couldn’t!   And I’m with you: it’s certainly a needed breath of fresh air!   And, yes: their deaths are sad.   Romero’sª in particular: it strikes me he should’ve had a good decade left!

†        She should do well, there, Debbi‡º.   Did you ever see her in Attack the Block?   Worth a watch, Attack the Block!   Yeah, it WAS nice to see Alex Kingston’s reaction.   I’ve one question, though.   How on earth did John Barrowman^ react???!!!

‡        I know a few fans are concerned about overseas sales: feeling this will have a seriously bad effect.   I think it might: but on the other hand, feel the BBC’s overseas sales department would have prepared for that.

^        I don’t know: but the phrase, over the top comes to mind… !

ª        In one interview?   Romero stated zombies couldn’t run.   Apparently, their ankles would snap.

º        There’s other sad news for Dr Who fans, yesterday: Trevor Baxter, best remembered as Professor Litefoot in Talons of Weng Chiang, died.   He’ll be missed: especially as he and Christopher Benjamin were recording a series of Jago and Litefoot spin offs.
