" Bluto- Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no! And it ain't over now. 'Cause when the goin' gets tough... the tough get goin'! Who's with me? Let's go! What the fuck happened to the Delta I used to know? Where's the spirit? Where's the guts, huh? "Ooh, we're afraid to go with you Bluto, we might get in trouble." Well just kiss my ass from now on! Not me! I'm not gonna take this. Wormer, he's a dead man! Marmalard, dead! Niedermeyer...
Otter- Dead! Bluto's right. Psychotic, but absolutely right. We gotta take these bastards. Now we could do it with conventional weapons that could take years and cost millions of lives. No, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part."

Hey folks! What is new and a happening? Well it is more of the same, but this time i have typed up a brand NEW resume and a brand NEW cover letter! Am i excited? Welllllllllll...yeah kinda becuase today is another divide and conquer mission where i go and pass out this great stuff to all the schools and put on a big ol honkin smile. Well it would be nice to get something around here, to get some money too...gotta be honest cause the student loan people, i know your just doin your job n all are calling me and i dont have much left on the loan, under $20,000 (in the $18,000 area) and i need employment to pay it back, but to get into education next year, i kinda need to stay in the loop, teaching in Japan was a good start, might have thought otherwise personally, but it looks good on the resume, somebody i loathe once wrote that people resume stack, blow it out your ass cause you need to so someone will notice, Dad used to say "You gotta have experience to get experience son, or have a last name...ha ha!" Like the old Ramones song, "High Risk Insurance"- "You gotta fight to stay independent, I got my pride and I'm gonna defend it." So like i said, flippin burgers and bouncing at bars is not gonna help, it is quick cash, but a step backwards. Someone told me to just forget education, forget life dude! If i give up now, then what? What would Dad think of me? That i just shrugged my shoulders, gave up on my dreams? Buddy, go sit on landmines in Afghanastan or something ok? Jeesh...
Anyways here is the text of my NEW cover letter....


I am writing you at this time in response to the position of educational assistant, .I am a professional student, who has recently arrived back in Canada after a stint teaching in Japan. I am skilled with Microsoft Word, Windows XP and various other computer skills as background. Besides my history degree at Acadia University, I have also worked steadily in the work force since June of 1989, juggling both education and working at the same time. I can offer my managerial skills I have acquired of working with the public and other people, these managerial skills include hiring, training, scheduling, and budgeting.

One skill I can offer is wisdom, I have a reputation for being a team player, always willing to listen to input from other people and being able to adapt to different situations when it was required to do so. My volunteer work in radio, sporting events and television has been a showcase for my analysis and problem-solving abilities. While at Acadia and other post-secondary institutions that I have attended, public speaking in front of large groups of people has been something I have enjoyed.

While teaching in Japan and in other places that I have worked, I have acquired skills in the areas of organizing and planning. I feel that I have an outgoing and friendly nature that allows me to have good relations with other people, including fellow students and staff members.
My resume that accompanies this cover letter hopefully can give you an idea of my potential for making a worthwhile contribution to your high school this coming school year.
Thank you for your time and consideration

What do you think? Anyways that was my day yesterday, making resumes and cover letters for today, the other night i went to Blairs and we watched, "Student Bodies" and "Friday The 13th Part IV" a couple of camp classics, esp Student Bodies (Which so deserves a DVD release from Cashamount...i mean Paramount!) and Friday IV has the distinction of containing the Crispin Glover dance! Which was originally set to Back in Black by AC/DC during the original production! And yes Blair, the shop teacher from Student Bodies (Horsehead Bookends!) looked alot like the Captain! Anyways folks i have to go get me show on the road, have a good one!
