Have a good day.
Have a good day.
Thanksgiving is tomorrow but Cara and I kicked off the holiday season last night! First we enjoyed a lovely dinner at a place called LandMarc. Cara enjoyed her scallops and I loved my spaghetti alla carbonaro. Here’s something I’ve never said before…there was no time for dessert. Ha ha. We had a date with Bryan Adams at Carnegie hall! I was excited because I’ve never seen Bryan Adams and I’ve never been to Carnegie Hall. I thought Carnegie Hall was great! Not too big, not too small. Our seats were in the first row on the first tier. They were great! Here was our view:
It was an acoustic show. Just Bryan and a piano player. The show was great! He has an amazing voice and some great songs!
Now I have to go through his back catalog and pick up some tunes I missed. The annoying crowd factor wasn’t too bothersome. Everybody has a cell and everybody, including me, wants a photo. I do it discreetly, no flash and fast. Most do the opposite. More than halfway though the show a woman sat next to me. She used her flash and had her volume up as she clicked off photos. Click, click, click, click… Annoying. But I was able to shut her out and enjoy myself. What was hard to shut out was her perfume. It. was. awful. The show ended around 10:00 PM. We made our way to the subway and ran into BobBorden.com webmaster and friend, Walter!
Ha ha. What a chance meeting. I’m glad I got to wish him and his family a happy Thanksgiving. The perfect end to a perfect night.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving! **Don’t forget to check BobBorden.com on Black Friday. I’m going to have some amazing deals! TELL YOUR FRIENDS!**
Saturday morning I like to wake up early and get breakfast at the deli. I mixed it up a bit by going to Starbucks. I’m not a Starbucks guy. I only went because I have a gift card. I got there at 7:30 AM and the parking lot is packed. So I parked next door in the bank parking lot. I’m standing in line for five long minutes and the barista shouts, “Oh no, the tow truck is at the bank!” I look over and the truck is pulling in next to my car. I got the hell out of line and got in my car ASAP! I think the tow guy may have honked at me but I wasn’t about to acknowledge him. What a joke! 7:30 AM! The damn bank wasn’t even open! I pulled into the now empty Starbucks lot and got Cara some coffee and myself a blueberry muffin. The baked goods are behind glass. BUT, they took my muffin out of a plastic bag and heated it up. Let me tell you, it’s unappetizing to see a muffin removed from a plastic bag. I know Starbucks isn’t a bakery but at least give me the illusion your stuff is fresh. It reminded me of the time when I saw McDonalds’ orange juice being loaded into the dispenser. It comes in a large plastic bag! Rough morning. I won’t be going back to Starbucks.
Saturday afternoon Cara took her niece and nephew to see the latest Hunger Games movie. I didn’t read the books so I didn’t go. Instead, I went to the movies by myself. I saw ‘Nebraska’.
I liked it a lot. No spoilers. Bruce Dern was great and so was Will Forte. The pacing of the film reminded me of The Straight Story. I like Bruce Dern. Back in the day, HBO used to show one of his movies, ‘Middle Age Crazy’. As a kid I bet I didn’t understand the midlife crisis plot but I did enjoy this scene:
Have a great day!
Have a great weekend!
