Have you ever watched the show, Shark Tank? I like the show and like the drive of the entrepreneurs. Last year I saw a guy pitch a belt. It was different because it didn’t have any holes. It’s kind of like a zip tie. My belt, believe it or not, is loose and out of holes. So you know what I did?
I love it! It’s real leather and the “buckle” looks good. This is not a paid endorsement. I just think it’s a good product.
You know what else I was shopping for? Personalized cereal bowls. There was a display in the supermarket. They didn’t have one “Bob”. I was under the impression “Bob” was still a hip and trendy name! Ha ha. So, they didn’t have my name but they did carry this one:
Good old Nevaeh! It’s “Heaven” spelled backwards. Is this a popular name? I guess so if it’s on a bowl. Horrible.
Have a nice day.
How was my weekend? Pretty darn good. Friday I was in the city celebrating Walter’s belated birthday.
A fun time was had by all! Asking your friends to take a photo for bobborden.com is always an awkward way to end an evening, ha ha!*
Saturday, Cara and I went on a road trip. We had lunch at a place called, The Cuddy.
Cara enjoyed a hamburger. I ate an awesome grilled cheese! Sourdough bread, cheddar, tomato jam and bacon. I added the bacon, of course. Again, very tasty! To offset my caloric intake, I ate cereal for dinner. We finished watching season two of Netflix’s ‘House of Cards’. No spoilers, of course. It was very good.
Sunday, I got out the shovel and moved ice.
My driveway was still narrow from the street plow. We had two days of 40-degree temperatures, so I struck while the iron was hot. Another polar vortex is on the way.
Have a nice day.
* An even more awkward way to end an evening is to ask for another photo because you forgot to give a “thumb’s up!”
I’ve mentioned my desire to quit sugary cereals before. I was doing well over the holidays but recently I got back on the horse. Rock bottom happened yesterday. I was buying some Apple Jacks for the amazing price of $2.49.
I was almost out of the aisle when a woman, at the opposite end of the aisle, said to me, “That’s why I’m here.” I said, excuse me? She said, “I’m here to buy some Apple Jacks.” I told her about the great price. She said, “That is a great price. Last week, Rite Aid had Apple Jacks on sale for $1 a box! So, I bought 20 boxes!” Immediately I imagined what her house must look like:
I ended it by saying, at $2.49 she should at least buy 10 boxes! Ha ha. I could have helped her get her habit under control. But screw her, I have my own cereal addiction to worry about. After this box, I’m done.
Have a great weekend!
Yesterday I talked about a stranger I didn’t admire. Today, I’m going to talk about a stranger I do admire. I was on the express train the other day. There were only ten minutes left in the ride when a guy got on and sat close to me. He took his jacket off, took his shoes off and laid down.
Again, he was only going to be on the train for ten minutes. I wondered what this guy’s life is like where taking a ten-minute nap on a crappy train is necessary. So, good for him, he’s getting it done! Either that or he was hungover. Ha ha.
Have a nice day.
I hate to point out other people’s flaws. But at the Kings of Leon concert there was such an annoying couple, I can’t stay silent any longer.
In this photo he’s checking out a selfie he just took. In the photo his girlfriend is kissing him. She kissed him most of the night. When she wasn’t kissing him, she was flailing her arms around like a used car wavy arm inflatable guy. She tried so very hard to get people around her, including us, to feel what she was feeling but they/we weren’t having it. The guy was bald. He had a crazy combover. Crazy! Like, how does he think he’s getting away with that combover, crazy! I have nothing against bald people. I have a bald spot. But I don’t cover it up with hair. It’s 2014! This issue has been covered hundreds of times on ‘Queer Eye for the Straight Guy’. Just stop.
He was not a Kings of Leon fan. He used the Shazam app to figure out the songs. He left for a brief period to buy a concert souvenir. Do you know what he bought? A hat. Ha ha. It was cold outside and his thin layer of hair probably doesn’t provide much warmth. Ha ha.
I will say, the people sitting next to me were cool. They were singing the songs and having a good time. And the people sitting next to Cara were good as well. They were checking out the combover couple too. Ha ha. How can you not notice you’re being a complete tool?
There was another event I didn’t like. Cara and I left our seats after the opening act and when we came back, her scarf was gone. Did our “good” neighbors do some stealthy shopping? Could it have fallen on the floor and got dragged to the aisle? We did move over so a group of four could sit together. Why would you steal a scarf? It’s a mystery.
Have a good day.
