It’s Thanksgiving Eve, if I can call it that. I hope everyone has a great one and I hope all your travels are safe. I’ll be here tomorrow. We work on Thanksgiving. I think this is my eighth Thanksgiving away from home. 7 or 8, something like that. We put the show on, a lovely meal is brought in and then we go home. It’s really kind of cool. I can stick my head out the window and watch the Macy’s Day Parade head down Broadway. The last few years, I drove my car in. I think I’m going to break tradition this year. I just have a vibe that’s telling me to take the subway.
I was really on the fence last night. I wasn’t sure if I should check out The Osbournes. They’re just so overexposed, if there is such a term anymore. I didn’t watch it. I decided to do a little self-introspection. OK, I played GameCube. I didn’t learn a lot about myself but I didn’t buy into the corporate Osbourne PR machine either. I’ll check it out this weekend; MTV repeats everything 100 times anyway.
That last paragraph was brought to you by one of my new characters, Redundant Bob. Personally, I think Redundant Bob is a jerk.
I saw a report yesterday on the number of websites out there that beg for money. I thought to myself, what kind of desperate people are out there? Let’s say I had a rich reader checking out BobBorden.com. I’d never, oh, say, ask for a Tivo – that’s so beneath me. Whatever happened to thegreat American work ethic?! OK, I’ve made my point — enough said.
I need a haircut. Just a trim, nothing major. But every time I go to SuperCuts and no matter how little I ask them to take off, they always take off the same amount. Hey, did you know that a Tivo can pause live TV? Huh. Anyway, back to my hair. So, I may just trim a little around my ears and call it a haircut. You can record like 60 hours with a Tivo. That’s cool. I’m getting to the stage where I have to tell the barber to cut around the bald spot. It’s not bald yet, just very, very thin. Fat, going bald and poor – that’s what I call the triple threat! Hello ladies. Screw it, somebody buy me a Tivo!
Whew, I went a long way for that one! The only saving grace is knowing that the whole world is probably on vacation today. No one’s reading this. I can say anything I want! I’m free, FREE!!!!!!!!! I want that new Honda Element. That looks like a cool little truck. They probably want you to pay for it with money. There’s the catch!
