Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 27-8-2016

Hmmm … 

I have to confess to having had to take the day off ill, yesterday.

I hate that when it happens: it’s a loss of income, especially in the type of job I’m in.

And … ?

Well, I hate letting the side down.   Even wanting to leave the job, as I do, I still don’t like letting the side down … 

Even given that … ?

Even given that, I still want to move on.

Today … ?   I’m facing a ten and a half hour shift, so I’d HAVE to ask if you can blame me!

Especially when — from what BT tell me — I’m expecting to receive a new router, today.

Why on EARTH do I never find nice 9 to 5, Monday to Friday jobs?

House of Cards — Series 4: Episodes 4 and 5 (Chapters 43 and 44)

Oh, that’s horrible, when that happens.

I’ve had to take off another day at work: with a dicky stomach.

I hate that.   The loss of money is one thing: along with the feeling I’ve let the side down.

I am going to HAVE to make sure I take in enough of my medication to deal with tomorrow’s very long shift.


At ANY rate … ?

At any rate, I’ve had the night to myself.

A night with nothing on TV, except what I choose to put there.

Just recently?

There’s been a few films: and?   Well, having worked out I can us Netflix on my Apple TV, that’s something I may wish to look at subscribing too.

iTunes rentals seem … to have less of a choice, right now, than other outlets: although that could well just be me.

At any rate, it’s something I’m mulling over … as I’m rather impressed by the overall quality of one thing.

That’s right … 

Netflix series, House of Cards.

You can possibly guess I sat down with a couple more episodes, tonight: can’t you … ?


Nik Nak’s Friday Question Set — 26-8-2016

Oh, now I HATE that … !

Did I mention I’ve got IBS?

I’ve got IBS: if you didn’t know.

And, at it’s worse?

Means phoning into work, ill: as my functioning is seriously impaired.

Today is one such day.   I hate letting the side down: and losing the day’s pay.


Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 26-8-2016: Steamboat Billie …

Oh, well, that’s THAT sorted … 

Obviously, you’re aware I’m online.

And use a BT Home Hub 3 as my router.

It’s had issues for years.

One ongoing problem?

Is the habit it has, of switching itself off, every-so-often.


Like that.

And, as you can imagine?   It’s rather annoying: especially when you’re streaming something from your computer, to an Apple TV.

Thankfully, though?

I’ve managed to get someone from BT to agree to replace the thing.

Hopefully, I’ll be in, when it turns up!

Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 25-8-2016: Saturn

Bleugh … 

And double bleugh … !

I had a LATE night, last night.

But I’m not complaining too much.

I spent quite a bit of time, nattering to friends, via Facebook’s Messenger app.

But also … ?   Spent a few hours catching up with series four of House of Cards: the first three episodes, so you know.

Wowsa … 

Frank and Claire underwood — Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright — are seriously at each others throats … 

It’s looking like a good one … !
