Wait it Out...

Hey there bloggeronies! What is a happening? Well not too too much. Tomorrow i am going to phone Nova Japan and see what the big scoop is, my last contact with them was the start of September and they said processing on my enterance to Japan would take 6-8 weeks. So six weeks is almost up and i am going to check in and see what is happening. There are those who are jumping with joy at seeing me depart...sucks to be them eh? My life is changing so rapidly. I'm not sure what I wanna be... but, I understand I've still got a lot to learn. So else is happening? Well my super duper coolest friend in the world went home yesterday and comes back today i guess. Hope she had a good time home as i think about her all of the time. So i went out last night and watched the hockey Axemen lose their 5th in a row, this time to Moncton. They are taking quite a bit of time to gel as a new team so hopefully they will get it together soon. I picked up my ticket for the oldtimers game next Sunday! It will be awesome seeing The Hammer and Knuckles and BAttlin Billy playing for the same team, wish Dad was here and going with me as i am sure it will be fun times. I wish i was going to the Axemen-Mounties football playoff game on SAturday, but i have to work...oh well... Halloween is on Tuesday night and i will actually be home! I used to so love Halloween, even as we lived in the Passage the ol Voorhees costume would come out and i alwasy had a blast, what is funny that i revived an updated version of that old Jason costume for my days at Acadia and at Mount Allison. Fun times eh? Who would steal a statue of Dennis the Frickin Menace?!?!?!?!?!? It was probably a frat and the pics will be online soon... I worked for the first time in ages in Greenwood yesterday..fun, loved working with the girls but man are some customers ever annoying eh? I think if i was rich i would issue everyone a widescreen television so that they could see why widescreen is so damned awesome and why full screen SUCKS BIG TIME!!! Maybe what i really need is some Deep-Fried Coca Cola?!?!??!What a storm here last night...was one wild ol ride home from Wolfville lemmie tell ya! I am thinking the feud of the year just might be Micheal J Fox Vs Rush Limbaugh!!! All Fox wanted to do was arge Missouri voters to support stem cell research in an ad for Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Claire McCaskill. Limbaugh is under seige from people mad at him, heard one person refer to him as RASH LIMPDICK!!! HAahahahahahahahahahahahhaahahahhaah!!!!!Actually here is an awesome National Lampoon list i found on the net the other day...

"What To Expect From College, According To National Lampoon Movies"
-The president of the student government will have actual power.
-Famous bands will often show up and play at random house parties.
-The dean is evil, as is his wormy assistant
.-There’s a black guy. One black guy. And guess what? He’s your buddy.
-Failing a class has absolutely no consequences.
-Your dorm room will have the following amenities: a private bedroom, a balcony, a hot tub, naked women and enough room to move around.
-An Indian kid with a funny accent will make your acquaintance and, eventually, help you out of a jam.-
You’ll never see, or hear from, your parents. The same goes for your friends from home.
-Your roommate’s younger sister will be super hot, totally into you, but way off limits.
-RA? What RA? Feel free to spark up that huge bong sitting in plain sight on your coffee table!
-One frat on campus will be exclusively for rich assholes, all of whom hate you and your ragamuffin friends.
-The only girl you really like will be dating either the captain of the football team, a staunch young republican or the president of the above mentioned fraternity.
-At some point you're going to have make a grand gesture in front of the entire school to save your frat and win back the heart of the girl who has mistaken you for an asshole thanks to a series of comic mishaps.
-You’ll win in the end. And then there will be a big party.

Good one eh?Anyways folks that is all for now, i am gonna go out in this messy ol weather and work 12-6 at the store formerly known as Andrew's and hopefully see the coolest friend in the world when i come home tonight! Have a good one!

Wake Up the Voiceless

Hey there bloggeronies! What is a happening? Well i actually have two days off in a row! Score! What else? Well last Thursday i went to the Zedex in Greenwood to go see the newest movie from the Rock entitled Gridiron Gang and well there were ummmm three people in the entire movie theatre! It was a good flick, your typical sports flick where team sucks, gets good, faces adversity and wins it all in the end. Funny how the team was beating one another up at the start of the film and high fiving and buddy buddy about 30-40 minutes in. Me and the world's coolest woman went up to me old stomping grounds of Acadia University on Saturday so she could go visit an old pal of her's at Eaton House. Weird to see Eaton House looking so ummmm..nice! And Co-ed to boot..well both Eaton and Chipman are co-ed now. We went and ate at Joe's where i devoured some Scot's Skins!!! (ROCK ON!) and while walking back up it was so weird to see Tower all dark and closed up, how many Saturday's did parties and stuff happen there eh? As my father would have said, now it looks like a spare dick at a wedding..(Never knew that one..) Oh i think i will ask my Super Duper rockin friend if she wants to go see Saw 3 which i believe is out this weekend. Well all of the Axemen teams lost on the weekend with the hockey Axemen on a now three game losing streak! Weird eh? However The Mount Allison Mounties football squad is now on a two game winning streak!?!?!?!?!!? Their first since 1999-00!!!! They are now tied for second place. So today i purchased some tickets for an oldtimers game happening at Acadia Arena on November 5th! NHL oldtimers include Billy Smith, Dave "The Hammer" Schultz and one of my favorite Habs of all time, Chris "Knuckles" Nilan! Sounds like good times eh? Actuially there was a major announcement just the other day on the AUFC Football Playoffs...

"Atlantic University Sport has announced the following decision on the balance of the 2006 regular season schedule and playoff format. all four teams will qualify for the playoffs and StFX, Saint Mary's and Mount Allison will play a seven game regular season schedule. Acadia will finish in first place and will host the 4th place team in one semifinal while the 2nd place team will host the 3rd place team in the other semifinal, both to be played on Saturday, November 4th."Adversity due to a breakout of the Norwalk virus at Mount Allison and StFX brought about the need to make difficult decisions related to completing the 2006 football schedule," said Mr. Phil Currie, Executive Director of Atlantic University Sport. "I would like to thank the four football athletic directors, our sport chair, Mr. Kevin Dickie and our office staff for participating in a very positive way towards a manageable solution to this problem. This decision was difficult because whichever direction it went there were potentially some members more affected then others. Fortunately, we have sport administrators who understand the importance of student welfare and cooperation in times of extreme difficulty."

Wow! Everyone is in!

Well the 6-8 weeks i had to wait to hear back from Nova Japan is almost up and as of next week if i do not hear anything i am going to call their offices on Monday. Every wonder about some places? I see Acadia U scrambling to save face with enrollment being down as i see more jobs were just cut. And they recently stated that they wanna cut out the laptop programmes as that is what drove tuition up in the first place. Heck Tower being closed is a symbol of the plight right now because a few years ago in 2000-01 there was a waiting list of some 300 people that just wanted to get into residence and only 27 wanted to live in Tower in 2006-07? People give me the BS of another residence opening as the downfall, no man it is because of the ridiculous tuition, sure Tower is a pit, but maybe there be people there if not for the tuition hikes. I sometimes wonder about their hiring practices in the first place. I saw something just the other week that made my blood boil and i would dearly love just to hear that particular person explain themselves, why i think Acadia has Jumped The Shark as they like to say and this particular individual is their own personal TED McGINLEY as everything it gets its hands on eventually dies a slow and painful death soon or a little while after ol Ted is done with it. Sigh.
Anywho folks, i am off to shower and walk the doggies..have a good one!

Take Time And Find

Hello there bloggeronies how the hell are ya? Well last Friday night me and the coolest grooviest friend the world has ever produced went to go see Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning at the Empire in New Minas. I actually liked it better than the 2003 remake, it amped up the red stuff, more victims and it was neat to see how Leatherface came to be, well there was a nasty part near the beginning which has to do with that very subject. ick... There was a trailer for another gorror flick ..well another remake/sequel entitled Night of the Living Dead 3-D..looks bad, but i have to see just for the cheese factor! Love how the webpage says George A Romero is not affiliated in any wasy with this new film...at least they are honest eh? What else is a happening? Well the hockey Axemen lost two straight on their first roadtrip of the year but the Football Axemen trounced STFX 23-1 on Saturday at Raymond Field. Of Course i was working at the store formerly known as Andrew's, so sadly i could not be there. However this coming Saturday night the hockey Axemen are playing STFX at 7:30 and i am 99% sure i am going to be there. I will take my nephew if he remembers this time. Oh what to do eh? Sometime i am going to recieve an answer about Japan and i will have made my mind up to go. The offer from Fort Kent is nice and all. I dunno sometimes. Am i happy? Yes i am for the most part..sure there are certain things that make me wanna freak the hell out sometimes, but for the most part i am good...i think. I have someone i really care about and it makes me wanna stay, even though i know i have to go. I have family here and all of that good and wonderful stuff...but i have to start my career, even if it means going zillions and zillions of miles away. I am sure that there are those people who do not mind at all that i am leaving..but they can all go fuck themselves....OOOOPS!!!! Robert Reid Hawley and that language!
Hey...beware of the Bollywood BEATLES!!!!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
Well Sunday shopping has hit the Valley and suprise suprise there are those who still do not know about it! Man it is only a buck, but picking up the newspaper is not really all that difficult..jeesh...and no the frickin Enquier does not count. So what about that Norwalk-type virus that hit Mount Allison over the weekend? Man that was crazy, led to the game between MTA and SMU being cancelled and having to be re-scheduled over the next few weeks, if they cannot reschedule, i say let all four teams in the playoffs and take it from there.

1) What exactly is a Norwalk-type virus? Norwalk virus infection is an intestinal illness that often occurs in outbreaks.

2) What is the infectious agent that causes Norwalk virus infection? Norwalk virus infection is caused by the Norwalk virus. The virus was first identified in 1972 after an outbreak of gastrointestinal illness in Norwalk, Ohio. Later, other viruses with similar features were described and called Norwalk-like viruses. These have since been classified as members of the calicivirus family.

3) Where is Norwalk virus found? Norwalk and Norwalk-like viruses are found worldwide. Humans are the only known hosts. The viruses are passed in the stool of infected persons.

4) How do people get Norwalk virus infection? People get Norwalk virus infection by swallowing food or water that has been contaminated with stool from an infected person. Outbreaks in the United States are often linked to eating raw shellfish, especially oysters and clams. Shellfish become contaminated via stool from sick food handlers or from raw sewage dumped overboard by recreational and/or commercial boaters. Contaminated water, ice, eggs, salad ingredients, and ready-to-eat foods are other sources of infection.

5) Who is at risk for Norwalk virus infection? Anyone can get Norwalk virus infection, but it may be more common in adults and older children.

6) What are the signs and symptoms of Norwalk virus infection?
-Stomach cramps
Severe illness or hospitalization is uncommon. Infected persons usually recover in 2 to 3 days without serious or long-term health effects.

7) How soon after exposure do symptoms appear? Symptoms usually appear in 1 to 2 days after swallowing contaminated food or water.

8) How is Norwalk virus infection diagnosed? Laboratory diagnosis is difficult. Diagnosis is often based on the combination of symptoms and the short time of illness.

9) What is the treatment for Norwalk virus infection?
No specific treatment is available. Persons who are severely dehydrated might need rehydration therapy.

10) How common is Norwalk virus infection? Norwalk and Norwalk-like viruses are increasingly being recognized as leading causes of foodborne disease in the United States. However, since no routine diagnostic test is available, the true prevalence is not known. Norwalk and Norwalk-like viruses have been linked to outbreaks of intestinal illness on cruise ships and in communities, camps, schools, institutions, and families. Many oyster-related outbreaks of intestinal illness linked to Norwalk-like viruses have been reported in Louisiana, Florida, Maryland, and other states where oyster harvesting is common. In 1993, 73 people in Louisiana and about 130 others in the United States who ate oysters from Louisiana became ill. A malfunctioning sewage system was the cause of an outbreak in 1996. An outbreak in 1997 was linked to sewage from oyster-harvesting boats.

11) How can Norwalk virus be prevented?
- Wash hands with soap and warm water after toilet visits and before preparing or eating food.
- Cook all shellfish thoroughly before eating.
- Wash raw vegetables before eating.
- Dispose of sewage in a sanitary manner.
- Food handlers with symptoms of Norwalk-like illness should not prepare or touch food.

There! Thought that would help out some. Anywho i am going to go relax and then work at 6 in the metropolis of downtown Middleton..have a good one!

Another Way I Could Do It

Hey there bloggeronies! Happy bird day to everyone. What is a happening? Well lemmie tell you something right now.............



The 34 game losing streak is finally over with a 24-18 win over STFX on Saturday!!! Well i had SAturday off and i went to the Acadia game and we lost a close one to SMU 24-21, we are still in first place so no worries...yet. Then i stayed in the area after the game and i went to go see the Trailer Park Boys movie at 7 at the Empire in New Minas, it was almost sold out and it was like no other movies mattered to other people on Saturday. It was hysterical, i laughed out loud when i saw Ricky playing 8-tracks in his car, esp April Wine. I so freaked out during the wedding scene when i heard HEavy Metal Love by Helix!!! All in all a good flick and different from the tv show, but yet the same as many felt they were watching a 2 hour episode of the show. Then i came home from New Minas in time to see the Habs beat the Leafs in a shootout!!!! Could life be any more wicked ass??!?!?!
Could be worse...i could be that house wrecking, womanizing Tie Domi!!!
I have to get a case of Bud Light...they have NHL retro hats in them!!!!!!!!!!!!! Super Duper Awesomeness!!!!
Today is a cool day..........my coolest, awesomest most super duper friend is heading home to Middleton!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And i promised to take her to go see Texas Chainsaw MAssacre: The Beginning on Friday night! Which will actually be a Friday The 13th!!!!!!!!!!! We chatted on the phone for 3 hours last night, it is fun chatting back and forth, picking on one another which is actually one of the coolest parts of our friendship. I feel very free around her, like i can express myself without fear of embaressment. We are so different in many aspects, but yet have so much in common, bizarre eh? I very much like being around her, at peace. Sure she doesn't wanna go see Beerfest or Jackass 2 and hates my singing and dancing and my Ringo Starr ramblings, but when i see her i know i will get giddy like a little brat....
Anywho, i have to ditch the tracksuit and get dressed, working at 5 today at the store formerly known as Andrew's and gonna eat some Turkey before i leave...have a good one!!!

Appeals For Insertion

Hey there bloggeronies! What is a happening? Well the weekend is upon us and well i am working tonight...boooooooooooooooooooooo! My coolest rockingest friend is gone home for the weekend till like Monday..how will i cope? Oh well we do have lots o fun hanging out n stuff, we wnet up to the shore the other night over in Port George and took the doggies with us, see no one misses out! It was nice, the water was in over the rocks ...ahhhh..nice stuff and we both suffered from a heavy does of the flu this week too as well...but i do believe that everyone in town has it as well... We watched the new Adam Sandler movie Click which was pretty good as well as the original, Han Shoots First Star Wars on DVD...all in all a good week, except for the flu stuff.
Waiting for my stuff from Japan to arrive, it takes 6-8 weeks to process and they started the process on September 6th, so either around the week of the 15th to the 21st or the start of November i should be hearing at least something from them. If i do not get that final approval, which everyone says i will, but i am the eternal pessimist i know i know, i will then get in touch with Fort Kent down in Maine and throw in the towel and go there and do education. I already didscussed this with some of my former professors and they said that they would write letters of recommendation if this was to be the case. Tomorrow i am going to the mall and going to the travel agency to see about flights to Japan in case i do get the final approval. Nice to know how much i will be paying for my flight. I guess years ago the sponsoring companty did pay students ways over to Japan and to other cities and alot of the time it blew up in their face because students skipped off on them, used it as a tool to visit Japan and basically an excuse for a paid vacation. So i am going to sit back and wait and see what happens with it.
Check out the Indian interpretation of Thriller!?!?!?!?!?
Tomorrow is the big game at Acadia, i am now going alone as my nephew forgot all about the game and is instead heading to see his family in Dartmouth. My Mom talked about it with me this morning. It is kinda sad, i wish i would see some of my old drive in the kid. I had none back in those days, but i picked up alot of drive as my post-secondary career went on and on and on. To the point where nothing else was good to me anymore, when i got a C+ my first year i was happy as a pig in S***, but by my last year and into my second degree, it was like a slap in the face, it meant more nights in the library, striving and playing way over my head with the single goal of being near the top. I would love to see some of that installed in him...will it? Who knows?
So we are going to have Sunaday Shopping in NS eh? Well about frickin time! Now get that LC open because there are dollars to be made! Of course the do-gooders will be out in full force protesting, Captain Redneck was already protesting, he protested to me once and i responded Son you are preaching to the wrong choir! I liked getting Sunday shifts, esp being full time in school and needing that extra buck for a book or going to do research of grabbing that extra beer...
So my GST check came today and so did my Guns N Frickin Roses tickets!!!! I thought my brother had ordered two extra, turns out they were for other family members that are going. Can't wait to see Axl and Roses...should be fun times!
Anyways gang that is all for now...have a good one!

Perhaps I Should Do Just That...Happy Almost 2nd Anniversary Robbblogs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Hey!
Well how is everyone? Just fine and peachy? Well it is almost the 2nd anniversary of Robbblogs!!?!?!?!?! How the hell did that happen eh? Alot has happened since that first ever post that was written at Perkins within the SUB at Acadia University. At that particular point in time i wanted something, redemption..why redemption? Because BF...i mean Darth Vader had grossly misgraded me as had JM..aka The Bitch of the Baskervilles did some years earlier, they had not just done that, they had also underestimated me..well well well a few years later and with a big FAT major in my hand i am packaged and ready to be headed for Japan to teach ESL to those who need it...also in the last two years i lost my Father who was my mentor and guiding light, i miss you everyday Dad and i hope that i do you proud.

What else is a happening? Well on Saturday i aquired some Guns N Roses tickets!!! Well..one ticket up in the nosebleed section. Friends are making comments that it is really Axl and Roses and of course Captain Redneck said that they are a one hit wonder...yeah yeah right, one of the best selling bands of all time a one hit wonder? Go play your frickin banjo ya silly redneck!

Ok...once and for all...here is a good definition of redneck that i found...

In modern usage, redneck predominantly refers to a particular stereotype of whites from the Southern United States. The word can be used either as a pejorative or as a matter of pride, depending on context.The redneck stereotype:The term redneck is seen by some people to be both racist and classist, as it is was originally used to describe a person of pale skin that has been sunburned doing outdoor work or field work, and disproportionately applies to the poor. Today, a redneck is a stereotypical southern United States socially conservative, fiscally liberal, rural, working class white person with northern European ancestry.
The popular etymology says that the term derives from such individuals having a red neck caused by working outdoors in the sunlight over the course of their lifetime. The effect of decades of direct sunlight on the exposed skin of the back of the neck not only reddens fair skin, but renders it leathery and tough, and typically very wrinkled by late middle age. Another popular theory stems from the use of red bandanas tied around the neck to signify union affiliation during the violent clashes between United Mine Workers and owners between 1910 and 1920.
Some historians claim that the term redneck originated in 17th century Virginia, when indentured servants were sunburnt while tending plantation crops.
A redneck is usually typified in popular culture by a straight male with a beer belly that consumes cheap American beer such as Busch or Miller by the case (Pabst Blue Ribbon in more traditional settings) as well as Jack Daniel's. They are generally distrustful or dislike anyone not like them or the government. The stereotypical redneck lives in a trailer, and drives an old, large, beat-up pickup truck with a gun rack in the rear window. He generally wears a stained, sleeveless t-shirt, blue jeans, and a trucker hat.
Their hair is generally worn in the mullet style, and they favor long sideburns. Personal hygiene is a lost concept with the stereotypical redneck, and what teeth they have left generally show the complete anthology of the stages of dental caries. Their favorite activities include hunting, shooting at road signs and lights, professional wrestling, NASCAR, monster truck rallies, car engine repair, collecting junked cars and large appliances on their lawns, having way too many children and dogs, participating in domestic disturbances, and waiting around for their welfare checks. Country and Southern Rock bands such as Lynyrd Skynyrd figure in as their preferred genre of music.
Stereotypical redneck females have similar characteristics and interests on a feminine scale. They are most often seen barefoot, pregnant and wear Daisy Duke shorts with stiletto heels.

Good one eh?

Of course this Saturday the Axemen are playing SMU this weekend at Acadia and me and my nephew are heading up to see the game. Hopefully an Acadia victory will put them back in the top 10 rankings (Currently they are #12 in the country) After the game we are thinking of going to go see either Trailer Park Boys: The Movie or Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning...one of the two anyways. I did have someone this weekend ask me what is wrong with kids with their thongs and wearing stocking caps in Fall weather...i told them to get out of the 1950s and join us in this century whenever it is good for them. Me and my nephew got into a sounboard war the other night using Ebaum's World...the Arnold Schwarzenegger board is still my fav while he seemed to like the Stifler board, anyways my Mother had company and wanted to hear where all the noise was originating, i told her to sneak up on my nephew who didn't know anyone had entered the room..she snuck over to him and he let out the most girly scream i had ever heard!!!!! HAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHI have the portable tv ready for Thursday night at work for the first Hockey Night in Canada of the season!!!! Actually i bought a bunch of CD Jewel cases today at the dollar store because i am making some new mixes for the drive up to the football game on Saturday. Lots of metal ...old school stuff like Iron Maiden and
Judas Priest..maybe some Ratt..who knows? Of course because i criticized my nephew's flannel jacket the Captain is now calling me Sir Robert of Acadia..kind of got a ring to it eh?
I spent the weekend with that special person of unholy coolness..we watched some movies and generally hung around. Lots of golden oldies we watched like Friday The 13th and Dawn of the Dead as well as the new Bettie Page movie. Lots of fun! I will miss her this weekend when she goes home for Thanksgiving...she likes Keith's so some weekend we are going to have a case or two..hahahahahaha!!!!!!!!! She must be the coolest awesomest woman in the world when she can survive a viewing of frickin METALSTORM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She had a cold the other day so i took care of her with lots of Celebrity Jeopardy!!!!!!!
So is Acadia going to drop the Acadia Advantage program? The program that put us on the map is also one that drove tuition through the frickin roof!!! There are eleven other universities in the Maritimes and as well as other universities, colleges and those at the community college level that are vying for the dollars and cents of young people. Having a tuition of $8,062, which is double the Canadian average is not very appealing to Joe and Mary Blue Collar who cannot afford to send junior to Acadia. Drop the program now, ignore the do gooders and listen to yourself. This week for the first time ever i sent to the mail here in good ol Middleton and i recieved a letter from Acadia Alumni asking for money, something they never ever did before, especially when it states about how enrollment is down. At least someone is being honest and coming forward with the facts. Yes i have good memories of my Laptop, from my first year when i didn't know how to even use the fricking thing to the very end and the 2nd end in
2004-05...but it may now become another relic of the past, something else to put on display in the Watson Kirkconnel room or somewhere...oh well they say you can't fight progress, but you also can't fight failing enrollment levels either...
Anyways gang that is all for now..have a good one!
