You Need A Mess Of Help To Stand Alone...

"If you can imagine it,You can achieve it.If you can dream it,You can become it"
- William Arthur Ward

Hey bloggeronies! What is a happening with Old Man Robert Reid Hawley? Well i have now been home four days and well life is taking some getting used to..slow pace of life, country living etc etc.. do i miss Japan? Well i miss the fast pace of life, the less i talk about my former employers for right now, the better off i feel. Remember kiddies if you cant say anything nice....
What did i like about Japan?
1) The record stores! Disk Union and Book Off are the best places to go if looking for tunes, Virgin Record stores are expensive. DiskUnion had lots of rare stuff.
2) Old school greasy spoons! The Sunny Diner in Kita-Senju was awesome! Old school burgers and fries! There was a bar on the same street and they were so decorated like the 50s.
3) The train. I always took the Tobu Line and it got me to work hella fast. I wish Canada had bullet trains.
4) You could drink in the streets! The feeling of getting a Budwiser at 3:00 in the morning and being able to open that puppy up outside? Awesome!
5) The sites! Ueno Zoo, Tokyo Tower...it seemed that everyday off was an adventure, always something new.
6) Internet Cafes, i belonged to two- one in Soka and another in Kita-Senju. Soka is cheaper and is called, Internet and Comics. Plus in Soka you can drink Coke or SLushies FREE!
7) Service- Everywhere i went, in stores, restaurants i was always greeted by smiles
8) Toy Stores! There is a toy store in Ueno that is like 8 stores and had all the latest NECA and McFarlene stuff!
9) Hard Rock Cafe- At Ueno Station...expensive as hell, but it was the first HRC that i ever went to.
10) Students- About 90% of the students were very sweet, nice people and i never will forget them.

What did i not like? Another blog...another time bloggeronies
Well last night i went to my Buddy Blairs...his expression was priceless! We watched Rocky Balboa and we are gonna get together again to watch Smokey and The Bandit 3 (Our favorite movie to make fun of...again another blog for another time!)
Well tomorrow i am headed up to Acadia, my alma mater. To do what? Well shhhhhhhhhh...but i have a few options in from of me and i want to explore them all.
Anyways i am going to eat, walk me doggies and head out for awhile, i hear Tims calling me name...later gators!
