Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 8-7-2017

Blast … 

I hate that, as well … 

I’ve managed to pick up a cold: god knows where from.

And I’ve Me and Bobby McGee making a vague attempt to earworm its way through my head: after hearing it on yesterday’s edition of Desert Island Discs.

It’s a strange thing to have happen.


Yes.   For once, I can point at an event, and “That’s why a song’s playing through my head.”


I’ve got no idea why a song turns up in my head.


Actually, going totally off the subject?

Today sees the big London Pride march happen: which is nice.

I do know a couple happier partnered up lesbian friends of mine took me along to one, a few years ago.

It’s worth going, from what I recall.


It’s quite an eye-opener!

It’s enough to make you start speaking Palare!


Let’s move on, shall we?
