Samuel In Dolgnwot Fun To Think About


May 22nd, 2006 at 07:30am

I suppose I should let you all know that I now have employment again. After studying for a while and coming to the conclusion that I’d rather be working (and perhaps study again some time in the not too near future), I have been successful in finding a full time job which appears to be something I should enjoy.

In about an hour from now (an hour from now being 8:30am), I will be at work. No need to worry though, I intend on continuing to schedule blog entries…the frequency might be a bit less than you’ve become accustomed to, but it should be fun. Last time I had full time employment I did neglect this site, I don’t intend on allowing it to happen again.

I might not be around to reply to your comments as often as I would like, but I will continue to reply…you’ll just have to wait a bit longer.

And unlike the last full time employment, this is likely to last much much much longer than two weeks, and the chances of being “overqualified” are less than minimal.

I might keep my job and the details quiet for now…I might reveal a bit more (such as what the job is) a bit further down the line, but I think it’s safe to say that non-disclosure agreements prevent most discussions of work. (If you’re really desperate for a tiny bit of info about what the job is, feel free to pay Media Monitors for a copy (either transcript or audio cassette) of my conversation with John Kerr from 3am on Saturday morning).

Incidentally, I have been on a trial Crikey subscription for about a week…I’m not really impressed with it, but I am considering forking our for a full subscription just so that I can get the TV ratings…which I will no longer be able to hear John Stanley report on after the 2pm news.

    Regardless of what the job is, I hope that you had a good first day at work.
    I’ll be sad if your website suffers, but I understand the need for money in today’s material world.
    Good luck with the new employment Samuel.
    You will be in my prayers.

    Thankyou Brother Sage, and yes, I did have a good first day.

    Coincidentally Samuel, you mentioned Media Monitors.
    I don’t want to wrongfully bring discredit on a respectable company, but sheep in my flock (members of my parish) have told me that Media Monitors recently made good use of the new industrial relations rules.
    I may be poorly informed, but I believe that several long serving permanent employees were retrenched from the Fyshwick Media Monitors office.
    Maybe you could use your journalistic nouse to nut this out. It would make a controversial topic in the ‘flage.

    I attended a Media Monitors interview a couple months ago in that very office, and they didn’t seem in the slightest bit interested in the job at hand…I think they had already chosen somebody though.

    That being said, since Media Monitors acquired Rehame a few weeks ago they have been flooding with job advertisements, so anything is possible.

    The only reason I mentioned Media Monitors was because previously 2UE would have referred you to Rehame for a tape or transcript of their programming, but Media Monitors take care of all of that now.

    After reflection, I have realised that your new employment will be happy and prosperous for all.
    Samuel 22:5 (Samuel’s first day of work on the 22nd of the 5th) reads;
    “For the waves of death encompassed me, the torrents of perdition assailed me.”
    Surely a happy omen for everyone concerned. Keep up the good work Samuel!

    I just did a Google search for Samuel 22:5 and I’m astonished at the number of different versions of the bible that are out there. I knew that there are variations, but I didn’t know that there are that many.

    Try for tv ratings.

    Actually as is one of those (potentially, depending on your browser and operating system) spyware infested landing pages.

    And I’ve already checked, they provide an executive summary to the public, and everything else seems to come with their software at a fee.

    I’ve sent an email off to the Crikey people asking them what they do with TV ratings.

    Thanks for the tip anyway seepi.

    sam, check out the tribal mind blog on the smh website, normally has a rundown of the previous nights ratings!

  • 10. Samuel  |  May 22nd, 2006 at 11:10 pm

    The Tribal Mind.

    Thanks for that zipper, if Crikey don’t provide the collated raw figures like John Stanley does, then Tribal Mind will do (unless I can get John Stanley’s production people to email the ratings to me…which is unlikely if they’re paying for them).

    Thank you for the insight Borther Sage … there are some of us who suspect this site has more secrets than the Da Vinci Code, there is also a certain primeval tribal element to it.

    Have you ever woken up on a golf green after a Persiflage-inspired sleep walk?

    Can you let us know the type of employment without giving too much away Samuel? I don’t mean to pry and I understand the need for caution regarding your privacy but I am interested in finding out what type of employment you have secured.

    I will understand if you don’t want to give anything away.

    Good luck and congratulations.
