A new career.

Should my paperwork from China not arrive prior to my departure date, I have found another possible career: a diver for the Philippines. After reviewing the following video, I concluded that I would be at least as talented!

    The back flip must have hurt his flipping back.

    I’m not sure either one came out of the experience feeling especially dignified! Having been tossed off a high-board once, it’s remarkable that they were able to move so quickly.

    By the look of their clenched teeth one might think they were constipated. Anyway, the dives made for a good splash.

    I wouldn’t give up on Dorset just yet, Christopher.

    The alternative lacks appeal as a career choice, but you couldn’t possibly be worse than this poor chap.

    Araminta: I do hope to find a Dorset job over the course of the next year. I am presently driven to moderate disquiet by the pace of document-delivery. I need two letters from China to obtain relevant working visa. Both, sadly, are currently sitting on a desk in Liaoning Province. With under 2 weeks to go before my departure to deepest, darkest Scotland things are growing slightly tense.

    As for diving, no, I have dived as least as well as the two — if not better. I would look much worse in Speedos, though.

    You are a man if many parts, C – if not in Speedos!

    Well you know my views on the China front! any job, anywhere preferable!

    CO: oh, I understand your view on it. It was a typical Chinese stitch-up that, despite the inevitable bureaucratic annoyances, is heavily beneficial to me. Since I do not have anything else lined-up at the moment, save my part-time college job, I really can’t think of why not to go.

    Let’s hope the letters arrive, Christopher but I can see why you are concerned.

    Just wondering, C: do you need a work permit in Dorset?

    Minty: let’s keep our fingers crossed. The visa service centre in San Francisco have been stars, but even they can’t make things appear out of thin air.

    Janus: no, Germany was one of the first countries to have freedom of movement with the UK.
