Always Something

"Again and again, the impossible problem is solved when we see that the problem is only a tough decision waiting to be made." - Robert H. Schuller

Hey folks! What is new Magoo? Well Facebook has disabled my account!!!?!??!?!?!? Why? I have notta clue as to why this took place, no warning, no nothing. They just gave some BS aboot constant warnings/ violations which i saw NONE of! They did disable me from posting for a day like back in May for having too many postings, cmon what kinda bullshit is that? What are they afraid of? A frickin popularity contest? Am i a popular guy? Some people like me and other people (They know who they are....i hope) can go jump in a canal with a rock tied around their ankles for all i frickin care. Whatta rant! Whooo! So what else is new? Well i am still on the educational job hunt and well... i got a message the other day about a possible EA job here very close to me, but i will have to wait till August to get anything done for it. Man i am starting to go stir crazy! You know..a case of cabin fever, cause Old Man Robb is feelin tied down a bit, especially when has to wait for wheels, even though i did get a look at a Jeep yesterday, but the rust spots outdid the paint, so that was a no go. Anyways there are more EA/ ESL jobs available and i am checking them out. Now another old buddy ol pal told me he has a lead on teaching up North...man that would be frickin cold! However how is the cash? He told me the cash is decent enough to cover my outstanding student loans that are left and would really help pave the way to getting into education at Acadia. Maybe not pave the way, but at least help in that it would be there sitting on the resume for all to see that i survived teaching up North for ten months and did not go all nutty in the process. So it has been a week of sorts, congrats to myself in that there are two weddings coming up, my friend Barry's in September and my old Buddy Bullen next summer, Barry asked me to MC his wedding to which i said a resounding YES and Buddy Bullen wants me to be one of his Groomsmen which i also said yes to....ill need a date too! One that wont take off on me...just kidding! Actually went shopping with my Momma and we went for supper at the Irving Big Stop in New Minas where i think the portions are getting smaller, my fish was like the size of a chicken mcnugget. ...crazyness! Me and Mom went to the Steer BBQ yesterday in Kingston at the Kingston Rink which was like my old stomping grounds if you wanna go back in time to the WK days. This was like the first time i had been to the BBQ since me and Dad went back in like 1990-91. Probably be a long time before i go again and it was boring and me and Mom stayed for an hour and then went to Tims in Middleton. So Tower and the Turkey Burger are back...attack of the killer Ts! Awesome...just totally awesome and i read someone had posted that it probably wasnt a mold problem with Cutten, it is probably an attendance problem with the campus. Well maybe that is why in 2008-09 everyone can bring their own laptop, attendance at the Big A is down and now they are a scrambling to put the pieces together. Just the other day the sport program was fined like $5000 for using illegal players...just what the hell is going on? Maybe this is why Old Man Robb has to return in 2008-09! However are the old gag orders in place? Perhaps Facebook did it to me, i remember being all set up for an interview for the campus rag when the Campus Douchebag pulled the F'N plug on it saying it was bad for morale to talk about other universities, i think he was just pissed and whiny like a 2 yr old cause his face was going to be nowhere near it. Some people think they have the spotlight, enjoy the attention they get, but dont wanna make room for others. You see it is that darned fear of losing power that corrupts those who wield it and fear of the scourge of power corrupts those who are subject to it. Just like the campus and they keep rehiring Ted McGinley to do everything...who is Ted McGinley? This is from Wilkipedia....
McGinley is thought of by some as being the patron saint of "jumping the shark," and is officially listed as such on that website. Alternately, he's known as a "showkiller." This is probably because whenever he joined the cast of popular and enduring series, usually later in their runs as a replacement character, they then went into decline. Such shows include Happy Days, The Love Boat, and Dynasty. He was also a replacement character on Married... with Children. In this series McGinley's tenure was ultimately much longer than that of his predecessor, David Garrison. See? Everything some of these individuals touch turns to crap... i think Acadia jumped the shark when KO left, however some Acadia oldtimers will argue with me that Acadia jumped the shark in 96/97 or whenever it was when the Acadia Advantage came in.

"Fearlessness may be a gift but perhaps more precious is the courage acquired through endeavour, courage that comes from cultivating the habit of refusing to let fear dictate one's actions, courage that could be described as 'grace under pressure' - grace which is renewed repeatedly in the face of harsh, unremitting pressure."- Aung San Suu Kyi

Soooooooooooo what did Old Man Robb do last night? Well i took a drive to Wolfville or WolfVegas as it is often referred to and have a Keths at The Vil and chatted and took in some of the scenery for awhile and then went to a friends place and we watched Porkys and Porkys II which was 2/3 of the greatest teen trilogy ever! And remember Porkys was the highest-grossing Canadian produced film till Good Cop Bon Cop!!! Getting back to Keiths...now that the football schedule has been announced, when the heck are they gonna start serving Keiths at the game?!?!?!?! The sponsor was like what Coors of something? An American beer? Ok i cannot remember if they were the sponsors, but they were on the menu, it was ok For the Bandit to deliver 400 cases of Coors in Smokey and The Bandit, but man...the pride of NS is not at our own football games...sigh... no tailgating parties and then this. Now if someone delivered 400 cases of Keiths before the home opener on September 8th Vs Mount Allison....that person would be a campus legend for LIFE!!!! Anyways gotta go downtown Middleton, see what the hell is a happening...have a good one!
