My casual “oh yeah, I'm going scuba diving or something next Wednesday..” attitude has just suddenly fallen to pieces.
Turns out I need to research about 10 billion gigabytes of material, pass an exam, see my doctor and arrange to have passport photos taken before then.
3 CDs and several forms were delivered here today. Along with the 10 page knowledge test, and the 2 page medical statement.
Apparently they don't just put you in a wet suit and push you off a boat...
That, and I need to deliver a new reporting application on Monday.
I'm going to do the only sensible thing I can.
I'm gonna go have a smoke.
