The Daily Teaser — 2-12-2014

I HAVE to admit to having a late one, I really do.

No, really, I had a late one, last night.

Privilege of working in an late night fast-food joint, I’m afraid.

It has, of course, left me feeling tired: understandably.

Tired … 

And even more inclined to laugh, listening to last night’s episode of I’m Sorry, I Haven’t A Clue.

Which I’ve just finished listening to.

It has to be said, Omid Djalili was fantastic.

Personally … ?   The more we see of him, the better … !


But let’s move on, shall we?

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Debbi* putting in her answers: and scoring five out of five.

Let’s see how everyone does with today’s questions, shall we?   Here they are, along with the How ToLicense and video …

Enjoy your day … !

*        I can only hope yesterday’s Teaser helped with the global travel bug, Debbi: it’s only now I ’ve realised all of yesterday’s answers were places.   I’ll have to ‘#autopilot’ to my list of hashtags†!

†        Bloody hell, how quickly did THAT get added to Wikipedia … ?
