Post.....250!!!

Hey bloggeronies! What is a happening? Long time eh? Well what have i been up to? Well well well... i spent most of the weekend with the NHL Legends of Hockey! I was at work on Saturday and my brother called me and told me he was in a bit of a pickle because he needed a driver to get these guys to the arena, so i left the store formerly known as Andrew's and went to the Slumber Party Massacre Inn (Or whatever it is called) and escorted these guys to the arena. From then we drove to a fellow's house who had one of the largest collections of hockey stuff i had ever seen! He even had dolls of the Hanson Brothers from Slapshot..the greatest hockey movie ever frickin made!!! From there we went back to Wolfville and to the Anvil!!! Yes Old Man Robb escorted Chris Nilan and Dave Schultz to one of my favorite old stomping grounds! We stayed, had a couple of pops and left. A friend of mine thought i had guys from the mob with me and i had to tell him...ummm no, told him who they were and he so did not believe me! Went to the Axemen- UPEI game Saturday night and man that was one of the most boring hockey games i had ever seen in that arena! Looked like everyone was skating in mud! Yesterday's Legends Vs The Axemen game was cool, then i got to drive The Hammer to the airport which was fun as well as getting to meet guys like Butch Goring, Rick Middleton, Dale Hawerchcuk and Dennis Vial. The Axemen football team won it's semi-final game against Mount A, well i guess it was a closer game then anyone anticipated and now the finals are going to be the Axemen Vs SMU. I wish i could go, but i have to work on Saturday. I do think however that i am going to go to the basketball game Vs SMU at 8:00 Friday night.
I really missed my buddy Kimberly on Saturday/ Sunday...nothing is as cool as hanging with someone who makes ya feel awesome.
Well not too long till Frickn GUNS N ROSES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What is it? 14 more days!!!!
MY old buddy Bullen sent me some pics the other day...not really all too sure why, but of someone i used to hang with a bit and we had a falling out, conrats to her. However it is not someone i really wanna talk to. Forgive and forget? Sure i forgive..forget? Never never never, oh i think our wires got crossed somewhere and alot of confusion, but i have better things to think about nowadays and other stuff of much more importance that to fret over some stupid old memory. Besides i have my super duper coolest friend in the world and that is all i need!!!
I finally heard back from Nova Japan on November 1st, all is going well with my application and they will be determining departure dates within the next 3-4 weeks and they promised to e-mail me with the details once the departure times are set. So the week of the 19th to the 25th hopefully they will message me with the details. Am i nervous? Sure i am! I am going to be in a totally different culture, it is a small time Valley boy going to a HUGE City, going to be living with people i have never met in a small apartment and teaching a whole different culture English! So i am nervous, but i am proud i guess that i went out and did something and recieved thise opportunity in the first place. I mean if people sit around on their ass all damn day then opportunities as well as life is going to pass them by, sorry but that is the frickin truth. You cannot bitch, wine and moan about yout placement in life and just be all talk, talk, talk the people who get stuff are the people who go out and work for it. Would i have gotten the chance to go to Japan by sitting on my fat ass? Fuck no! I had to work at it, make phone calls, inquries, get a passport done, have a background check done, get needles. All kinds of stuff. I now have to go shopping and buy some suits and ties and get that done so i can look good while i am there. And remember i have to be there 6 months or so before i can have my first vacation and come home for 10-12 days.
And i will miss my super duper buddy.
Martin Scorsese's version of Sesame Street...rocks!!!
So Saddam is gonna hang huh? Just in time for the election too! This is so Bush, the oil industry puppet can reinforce his case for the war in Iraq, something that like some 60% of all Americans are all against. So silly, and so turning into another Vietnam. Saddam hanging does not solve the challenges that the Americans face in Iraq, according to the Associated Press as of
November 4th, 2006, at least 2,828 members of the U.S. military have died since the beginning of the Iraq war in March 2003. The British military has reported 120 deaths; Italy, 33; Ukraine, 18; Poland, 17; Bulgaria, 13; Spain, 11; Denmark, six; El Salvador, five; Slovakia, three; Estonia, Netherlands, Thailand, two each; and Australia, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Romania, one death each.
Such a friggin waste if you ask me.
Maybe John Kerry should give more speeches...
"You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq,"
Ouch! Inspirational stuff!
Anywho i have stuff to do, laundry and then working at 6:00...have a good one!

PS- L7: Shitlist!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
