|Yes, in 612ABC, Studio 400, at 6.12am and barely a second to spare|
I did get some sleep, it has to be said. Three hours and with another late finish tonight. Chas is right, I need another job...but it would be hard to get a job that has this combination of variety and excitement. 'I spy' on my twitter feed that another early starting tweepster is up, disguising his intentions claiming a nocturnal cat is waking everyone up. It's great to see Brian (@Dobboinaus) in green room. He's there with Evan (@EvanOnTheGC), Bob (@rastas000) and Lord Julian (@JCBOONAH). We're joined shortly by @brissiefarmgirl, and chooks. Later, in the studio, there is Susan (@snoozen) who is there for her regular Wednesday spot.
|Inside, looking out, |
The taste test is going live to air...the things one does...I'm convinced number 2 is the stale one but when two of the blokes answer number 1, I have some self-doubt. I think I can guess the brand of beer but I reckon it is number 2. No worries, there are no prizes, but I should get it right. Scott identifies number 2, I confess I believe the same...we are right. I'm still not sure what to make of a skill that identifies stale beer on breakfast radio...
|On the way to the tute, |
I have to be at work for the 10am lecture, the Republic, mark 3. I have a slight change to the lecture schedule today, a joint effort with a colleague who teaches linguistics. Normally I do it separately each year, but somehow this semester our courses clash so we have no option but to do it at the same time. It is on the media in Japan, for my students, and the socio-lingusitic aspects for my colleague's students...it is an interesting challenge. Thereafter, it is back to our respective tutorials. I stay back for a while to do some more work. I have a special lecture on Japanese history to give to some visiting high school students on Friday. I should spend a bit of time on it. It's been a long day.
