That is a very risky strategy, as you might get more that you bargained for.

The older I get, the faster I used to be ...
Had to nip through to the bedroom to check. The duvet on my bed just now has a cover with a zip.
I must lead a very sheltered life, I've seen and fiddled with buttons and press-studs, but never a zip :sad:

BBC news breakfast.

During the week, fine. The best handsome male presenters and middle aged female presenters who are easy on the eye are given the job.

However, during the weekend the handsome and attractive presenters star home and the BBC wheel out the B class presenters - they're visibly less good looking, markedly so, to the point that it's quite obvious.

That bothers me. I would like to ogle Louise Minchin 7 days a week.
Don't knock the weekend shift, it is when the BBC test the waters to see if black and Asian presenters are acceptable to The Great British Licence Fee Payer.

Why is vampire lore so inconsistent in vampire films, TV series, books, etc? For example, sometimes vampires have to be invited in before they can enter your home, but in other shows you don't hear that. Sometimes cats are scared of them; other times not. Sometimes they have a problem dealing with wooden crosses, garlic and holy water; other times these are just minor discomforts. Some can turn into bats. Sources agree that they can be killed by a driving wooden stakes through their hearts, but sometimes decapitation works too (why not burning at the stake?). Just now I was watching Ingrid Pitt combing her hair in the mirror in the Vampire Lovers. I think she likes the shade, but she doesn't burn up in daylight.

I thought vampires cast no reflections?
