Yo. This past weekend and last night, no matter what’s on TV, I always seem to end up watching The Wash — Starring Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre. It’s not very good but I enjoy it. There’s something very entertaining about watching Snoop Dogg. Put Snoop with the right project and then you’ll have something.

I won the Canadian football pool at work yesterday. Hello $6 – The Canadian pool hasn’t really caught on yet but you have to be in it to win it! I bought a $5 scratch off ticket and a lotto ticket. Hello easy street, goodbye poorhouse. I lost on the scratch off ticket, damn.
I need a haircut. I don’t really need one but it’s starting to grow over my ears. I hate that. I can’t do SuperCuts again. I think I may go to a real barber, old school. Hey, the new Beck CD is out today. Rolling Stone gave it 5 stars; I may have to go to the record store tonight.
Speaking of music, I picked up some ‘new to me music’ this past weekend. I bought Outkast’s Stankonia and Roxy Music’s Siren. I really like Roxy Music. I happened upon an old review and that made me want to broaden my musical horizons. I like Outkast a lot but I got the CD mostly because I like to say “Stankonia” Come on, say it, it’s fun – STANKONIA!
OK, that’s about it. Have a great day. God Bless America.
Hello. Man it was humid this weekend. It just made me feel sick, like I had malaria. Anyway, I had Friday off. It was Emmy weekend and a lot of the staff flew out to LA for the ceremony. I declined to go because I just spent two weeks out there in August.
Friday, I woke up, staked my claim in front of the TV and stayed there until dinner. I picked up some Mexican food, mmmmmm. I watched more TV and called it a night. Some may say, I wasted a day off but I think I needed the rest.
Saturday, I drove to an electronics store, The Wiz. I wanted to buy a DVD to watch that night. I swear I was looking for an hour! I couldn’t find anything. Finally, I came across The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai. I heard good things about it. It’s a cult classic. I didn’t care for it, at all. I sold it four hours after I bought it. Checkout the receipt from The Wiz:
The Wiz is wasting paper
That’s the biggest receipt I’ve ever seen! Multiply that and all their customers — so much waste. What a wasteful world we live in.
Hey, check it out; the A & P had a sale on paper towels. I bought 12 rolls of paper towels for $4.99!
$4.99 for 12 rolls of paper towels!
So I’m a hypocrite, at least I admit it.
Sunday, I drove into the city. I went to my office because I wanted to take some old junk home. I cleaned my office last week. Now it has a much more professional feel. Clean office, clean mind. After that I drove to Nutley and did my laundry. One of my favorite simple pleasures on earth is putting my clothes in the dryer; walking next door to the pizza parlor, order up a slice and an R/C Cola. That’s sweet living. OK, two slices.
Sunday Night, I watched the Emmy Awards. I’m happy to report that Late Show with David Letterman took home the Emmy for Outstanding Variety, Music Or Comedy Series — Congratulations, to us. Very exciting!
That’s it for Monday! Have a great day. God Bless America.
Hi. Most of my day yesterday was spent rearranging my office. My desk was facing north, with a wall in front and a wall to my right. Now, my desk faces west, with windows to my left and the hallway to my right. Check it out:
Bob rearranged his
I have to say, I like it. I’m not hidden behind a door anymore. I put a couch in there and I have one of those little fountains, you know, for stress.
Because we’re not taping this week, I got out around 5. That’s sweet living. Makes me feel like I have a life. So what did I do with my extra time? That’s right, I went to Walter’s house and played video games. Damn that Tony Hawk game is great! We ordered in some Italian food for dinner. Oh what a night.
I was going to have a contest today but then I thought – Is there a way where everybody could win? And then it hit me! I’ll give away something for your computer – maybe some new wallpaper? I like that idea. Here’s the image:

OK, that’s it for today. I have Friday off. Tune back on Monday for more adventures of BobBorden.com. Have a great weekend. God Bless America.
Thank the Lord there’s music. Certain songs make me feel certain ways, very interesting. G Love and Special Sauce makes me feel like its fall. Prince makes me feel the pain of love. And Right Said Fred makes me smile. Yes, I bought that record! I liked it; I don’t care what anyone says! The most embarrassing album I ever bought was, get ready, Chunky A — Arsenio Hall’s alter ego/Rap character. I’m not sure what I was thinking?! 1989 was a very confusing time for me. What was your most embarrassing music purchase? Let me know on my message board.
Bob’s most embarrassing music purchase
I’m not sure why I started talking about that? Anyway, I’m rearranging everything in my office at work. I spent yesterday cleaning out all the crap. Today, they’re going to move my desk from one side of the office to the other. I didn’t realize how much junk I had in there. I’m going to get rid of all the crap and go 100% business.
I started off this diary listening to G Love and Special Sauce. Now I’m listening to Anthrax. Caught in a Mosh!
Photo of Bob that has nothing to do with today’s diary
So, that’s all I have for today. I have my mind of the redesign of my office. It’s kind of important to me; I spend more time there than I do at home. I think I’m going to buy a plant today — maybe a fern.
Have a great day. God Bless America.
How’s it going? I thought I’d start off today’s diary with a question. Trying to mix it up a little bit. OK, now I’m going to talk about myself, ha ha.
I still can’t believe my Vanilla Ice Rap doll was on VH1 last night. Incredible! And people laughed when I was putting my Rap Doll collection together. Well, who’s laughing now? Huh, speak up — I can’t hear you! That’s what I thought.
I had a short day at work yesterday. We’re not taping this week and yesterday was a holiday. I got out at 2:30! My friend Jay and I went to the movies. We saw Barbershop.

(This photo has nothing to do with Barbershop)
Barbershop was just OK — A few funny moments and a few touching moments but nothing spectacular. I was a little disappointed. But it was a good way to kill a few hours. I think Jay felt the same way. We went to a DVD store and then parted ways. I headed back to Hoboken and cooked myself some dinner. On the menu, soup and a hamburger.
Time for a new feature to BobBorden.com, I call it: Supermarket Oddities. Here we go:
Someone at the Tostitos factory
was asleep at the switch
I saw that messed up bag in the store and I said to myself, that’s grade “A” diary material. I should sue the company but damn if those Tostitos ain’t tasty! That’s it for Supermarket Oddities.
And that’s it for today! Have a great day. God Bless America
