CIT Requirements Analysis Test Dream

Things you receive in the mail reall can mess with your head…I had a very strange dream the other night, and I blame it on some mail I received a few days ago. The letter was a status update from CIT, which regular readers would know I stopped attending a few months ago, what I didn’t make public at the time is that I never officially unenrolled, a decision I made on principle.

I stopped attending CIT due to a number of factors including health, a high intensity course being condensed into an even higher intensity course and, of course, full-time employment (when the opportunity presents itself…). I discovered that, despite the fact that I had not finished courses, or even had a great attendance record (factors above), officially unenrolling would not allow me to recover any of my course fees, but would result in a decent lump of tedious paperwork…effectively I was not going to gain anything by officially unenrolling, and it would take time and effort away from other things which were starting to fall in to place.

The upshot of all of this is that my course fees are still hard at work maintaining my CIT attendance record and generating the occasional interim report (the document I received in the mail a few days ago).

Anyway, not long after receiving the letter, I had a dream where I was walking down a corridor which looked similar to a corridor at work, I opened a door and walked through, only to find myself in my Requirements Analysis lecture room (I’m still officially enrolled, so it’s my room) where everybody was preparing for the final exam. Realising that I had missed weeks of classes I went into a panic…and then the dream ended.

The thing I really miss about CIT is Cafe Yala…but I’m very happy working, and I can quite easily and happily do without the annoying sound of FM 104.7 breakfast which I was subjected to on many ocasions. No wonder I always sat outside with my radio at that Cafe…much better with the fresh air and 2CC…it was always good in the middle of the morning to talk outside with a coffee, sit down, and listen to Lawsie.

Hmmm, I think I digress, or perhaps I’m reminiscing, either way, this has almost no relevance to the dream, so I’ll stop.

Samuel’s Persiflage Update

Another thing I’ve been receiving emails about is the next episode of Samuel’s Persiflage. It is due for release on Thursday night, although I might delay it until Friday night if it enables me to lock in another interview about a topic which a few listeners have requested.

Where are they now?

Every now and then I get emails from people asking me where people who have been mentioned on this website are now, as many of them have changed job or employer since they were mentioned here, so I will go through a list of people who I would like to update you on.

Kane Bond, ex-2CC producer and presenter, recently seen in the Dickson area working for a government department (either that or he has a twin).

Person suspected of being Canberra_Boi, the person who suggested I shouldn’t worry about 2CC and then went on to make defamatory statements about various people at 2CC. Sighted on multiple occasions working for a company with an office on Northbourne Avenue, and sighted at Westfield Belconnen.

Kevin Woolfe, ex-2CC/2CA sports reporter. Now working for ACTTAB, and can be heard acting as media spokesperson for ACTTAB during the Friday edition of 2CC’s Mike Welsh Drive Show.

Robbie McGregor, ex SBS voiceover man. Not surprisingly Robbie has been in high demand since SBS dumped him (and one of their main identifying points), voicing all sorts of advertisements on all sorts of radio stations for all sorts of companies and causes.

George Gibson, ex-2UE weekend middawn announcer. George has been working for 2UE’s main rival 2GB since late December, filling in for various people, mostly on the middawn shift.

Daniel Gibson, ex-temporary 2CA breakfast presenter. After Paul and Leighton took over 2CA breakfast, Daniel took some time off from 2CA before returning to his previous night shift. Daniel is also still the Prime Television weatherman.

Greg Robson, ex-2CA breakfast presenter. Robbo is working for Fyshwick.com and parent company.

Daniel Sutton, ex-2UE news reporter. Now reporting for Channel Ten.
