Robert Reid Hawley FAQ!!!

I figured it was only a matter of time before i did this....

Drumroll....

The dreaded....

The Robert Reid Hawely FAQ!!!
Oh and for the dummies...FAQ is an acronym for Frequently Asked Questions. It is also sometimes used as the singular Frequently Asked Question (Although when was the last time you heard only one question?). Some have called it Frequently Answered Questions as well. This isn't necessarily correct, but it isn't necessarily wrong either. It effectively has the same meaning. A compilation of Frequently Asked Questions (and their answers) is referred to as a FAQ list or FAQ article. Sometimes the term FAQ itself is used to refer to the article - as an example, I refer to this article as a FAQ about FAQs. The term FAQ has a meaning of its own that could almost qualify it as a word of its own. Sometimes, FAQs are full of answers.

Here is my very own

1) What is your full name? My name is Robert Reid Hawley. Sometimes i am known as
Old Man Robb, Robbo, Robbie, Robert (My Mother calls me that most often) as well as countless other names..some nice, some not so nice.

15) Why the long dragged out high school career? Man i learned shit...esp in CHDHS, i still think teachers waste too much time on seeing who is trying to skip and who is in the hallway and not enough time prepping kids for post-secondary education.
16) Why only one year at Kingstec? Morons don't know talent, proved wrong later.
17) Why only one year at Mount Allison? Again another place where teaching was for the birds, liked living there though. Missed the stuff i was used to at Acadia like the library open late, the nightlife and not having to wait till 11:30 to eat breakfest on Saturdays and Sundays.

19) Where did you live at Mount Allison? Harper Hall
20) Why are you going to Japan? No one here is smart enough to give me a job or they are worried i am going to take their job. Let's just say i am a wee bit bitter. They say you need experience to have experience, so here i go!
21) Who is your favorite hockey team? The Montreal Canadiens and the Acadia Axemen
22) Didn't you have a College Radio Show? Yes, it was called "Assume The Position" and it was named after a comment in the movie, "National Lampoon's Animal House" Me and a friend named Ghislan debuted the show on Radio Acadia in 2000-01. However TED McGINLEY
screwed it up and as a result the station was off the air before the end of 2001-02. However at CHMA at Mount Allison in 2003-04 the show was revived as a single man show starring me and drew really good ratings. I would love to revive it one day...
23) What are you favorite movies? B horror movies, comedies and action. Maybe a drama once in a blue moon. Love old school slashers like Friday The 13th, Halloween and Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
24) Who is your favorite band? Tie- The Beach Boys and the Ramones- my favorite kind of music is punk, rock, old school metal and some oldies.
25) Do you hate country music? With a passion.
26) Any other hates? Ketchup on eggs and Kraft Dinner..seriously i have to leave the room. Tuna and processed cheese..yuck! White guys who think they are black, bums, people who loiter where i work, people who talk a good game and do shit in life, lazyness.
27) Who is your super duper coolest friend in this whole wide world? Kimberly..nothing sweeter!
28) Any others? Lots of friends everywhere! Hard to keep up with everyone!
29) Favorite beer? Keith's, Colt 45 is a sentimental favorite
30) Most inspirational person? My Dad...i miss him very much.
31) Fav TV Shows? Lots in the 70s and 80s- loved Dukes of Hazzard, Knight Rider, Dallas, A-Team. Of Course Sat morning stuff, Sat morning WWF and HNIC- today is all reality shows and CRAP
32) Do you hate rap? AS bad as country
33) A typical Robb morning? Wake up, make coffee, read the news on the computer, wake Kimberly, read the newspaper, walk the dogs, do errands and then work.
34) Do you love Acadia sports? Absolutely? Win or lose i am there if i can make it.
35) Favorite Hockey Player? Guy Lafleur, would have loved to have been alive to see Bobby Orr in his prime.
36) You met Wayne Gretzky? Yes, me and my brother waited a good hour for him to emerge from the back of the Northlands Coliseum in 1982 after a game between the Edmonton Oilers and the Colorado Rockies. Wayne had a mullet and a fur coat and was a really nice guy.
37) Your first rock concert? Alice Cooper..sometime in the 80s
38) Why can't you usually keep a GF? Their fault, not mine...JK! I think some bad match-ups, some bad choices in women, but now i am happy, my first GF in awhile and i like her lots!
39) Best family trip ever? Coming back from Edmonton to Nova Scotia and driving through the States in the summer of 1983. Everyone was there and got along.
40) Worst moments? Losing Dad was up there, ummm..whenever i lost a dog. As a kid i did not understand that they aged 7 yrs every birthday..silly me. I did have a best buddy i did everything with and then one day we stopped hanging out and i seemed to never forgive him for it and what made it worse is that no one else saw the bad in it but me. Silly stuff, maybe someday i write emo songs about it...LOL..my 2nd year at WK was terrible due to me being hurt by something stupid that was my fault as i realized later that what bugged me was pretty worthless.
41) Best moments? Hanging with Dad, doing family stuff like going on trips, hockey games, even a family trip to the Flea Market was an adventure back in the day. Ummm..graduating from Acadia was an awesome moment as i did not attend my high school graduation, my old junior high school in Eastern Passage stopped doing graduation my year. So it was my first and someone who said i was untalented was there right almost in the front row!!! And when i was returning my grad robe there was another person walking up the road from back in the WK days who said i was talentless..well well well. Another moment would be getting my marks when i returned to Acadia in 2004-05 and realizing when you have good teaching, you will do well. Lots of good memories, friends. Lots of good times in Tower as well.
42) What was the name of your old junior high school? Eastern Passage Junior High, i attended it from 1983-84 and finished it in 1987-88. The building is now an elementary school. I was kind of a nerd. Like other schools i attended, the potential was there for an academic breakout, my Dad always thought the potential was there, but no one believed it, esp me and well...lots of my teachers. I became shy, but yet the class clown at the same time. I always liked a good quip, comment or doing something silly. I think kids today have no imagination, yet back in the day we had no satellite tv, no advanced video games, internet and computer stuff and had to make do and make our own fun. We used our imagination and that was the difference. By the way i still think i was elected class president in the 8th grade for a joke.
43) You were always involved in school weren't ya? Well i could never stand still. High School saw me in the school play, school choir, winter carnaval committee, school mascot (I was a lion) yearbook committee, statistican, i taped the hockey and basketball games, i was the PA announcer at the hockey games, i was in drama, the outdoors club, business club and i played lacrosse and was on the wrestling team, i stopped playing hockey at the end of grade 9 when i realized...ummmm...i sucked.
44) University involvement? Ummmm...radio show, floor representative on student council, tour guide, history club, sociology club, the beer club (A real promotion by Molson in 2001..honest) to name but a few....
45) Why did you take 2005 off? To look after Dad. To relax i mean i have been in school all of my life with the exception of a combined 7 years! And i wanted to work on my future, i mulled offers from other schools including Fort Kent and a few others.
46) How is your Mom? Good..awesome
47) What is your future? Go to Japan, pay off student loan and eventually return to prove to people i can work, possibly take their job and to hang out with Kimberly.
48) Why is your blog so big! I can talk alot and i have lots to talk about!
49) Ok...worst movie ever? Zombie Lake..never finished it..and i have tried!
50) Why so many questions? I can talk...and blog!
