Man do I feel great today! I was on the bus this morning thinking of all the little things I had to do before I got to work. Bank, card shop and I had to get Subway tokens. I worry about crap like that — “How will I do it all?” Blah Blah Blah. Anyway, I did everything I wanted to do. I worry for the sake of worrying sometimes. I have to watch that. I was going to get a haircut today but I took care of that last night. That’s right I cut my own hair again. It’s short, maybe not the most fancy haircut on the block but I like it. Its become a hassle to go to the barber or Super Cuts. Last night, I went over to my new friend Sandi’s house. We watched TV. Anyway, I’d like to make this equation — Sandi is to Football what Bob is to Home and Garden shows, ha ha! It’s funny because it’s true. We bet on the Antique’s Roadshow — you know, “I’m going to say that basket is $350″ and she’d say something like, “I’m going to say $550.” That was fun! Then we watched 24. I’d never seen it before because I’m not one for the gimmick TV show. However, I was really surprised, it’s good! “This just in: Borden likes 24.” “Hey did you hear about Borden?” “Yeah, he says 24 is good.” — OK, I’m not sure what that was? Maybe people around a water cooler or a reaction to a news-flash. Either way, I’ll never do that again, ha ha. So — I had a fun night! Went home, cut my hair and cried myself to sleep. KIDDING! That reminds me of a story — When I was in acting class a few years back — We had to do this exercise where we all sat in a circle and said how we were feeling. Here’s an example — “I’m happy, scared, optimistic —” You get the idea. So, everyone did this including the teacher. He was this really great/funny guy, I learned a lot but when he did this exercise, it went something like this — “I’m happy, optimistic, thankful, lonely, depressed, sad [Long pause] OK, LET’S GO EVERYBODY!” The juxtaposition was very, very funny. OK, I’m going to go find my hat. Have a great day.
God Bless America
Hello. I’d like to start today’s diary by saying Happy Birthday to my Mom. Happy Birthday, Mom! I don’t think she’d mind me saying that she just turned 60. 60 years young — that’s what I say. Since her birthday is so close to Christmas, in the past, I always got away with telling her I’m going to save her birthday present for Christmas but that never really worked out in her favor. This year I got her a real present for her birthday. I bought it last time I was home and it’s there right now! Mom, go to George’s old room and open the closet. At the very top, in a brown grocery bag — that’s my birthday gift to you. Use it in good health, I love you!!!! Happy Birthday!!!!
You can never have too many can openers, HA HA!!!! “Booooooooooo!” I passed out about 45 of my Christmas CD’s yesterday. I enjoyed that project. You can really do anything nowdays with a computer. Edit a movie, print up a photo, record a song in a studio — download porn — I was just kidding, I don’t know anything about printing up photos. “Booooooooooo!” I’m enjoying heckling myself. Let me try something — “Hey, Borden, your website sucks!” Oh yeah, well you suck more. My comebacks to myself need work. I think i’m losing my mind, I think I’m going crazy — AAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!! Internet Acting, thank you, thank you very much. I came up with something new to do on the internet yesterday. I was having an Instant Message conversationwith my friend Jay. Then, it just hit me — what would we be talking about in the future? I came up with “future conversation.“ That’s a conversation that that takes place in the future, except it’s now — you have to suspend reality to make this work. It was fun. I’m not a geek! I’m cool, I swear. Want to play Dungeons and Dragons later? That was a joke, I was never into D & D. I was into Heavy Metal and video games — you know, like the cool kids. I just had another idea –“Past Conversation.“ Here’s something I’ve said in the past, “Hey Mom, can I have some more chips?” Ha ha, that’s not a joke. OK, I have to go. Have a great Tuesday! Mom, you did want a Salad Shooter, right? “You suck Borden!” Shut up!!! God Bless America!
Friday night I just kicked it. Saturday, I went over to my friend Walter’s at 12 to work on my Christmas CD. I dream up these projects, like short films, websites and Christmas CD’s and Walter makes my vision, my dreams — reality. I told him that he enjoys helping me because it’s easier for me to look like a fool that it is for him.
I was supposed to go to a party in Hoboken on Saturday night. I thought I’d be leaving Walter’s by 4:00 at the latest. I didn’t get home until 11:15! Too tired to get my party on. I met these nice people almost a year ago, David and Deirdre. The first time I met them, I threw up on myself from too much drinky drink. And they keep inviting me back! You got to love people like that. I’m going to send them a CD this week to make up for it. Anyway, I’m sorry I couldn’t make it but I only had Saturday to work on the CD. You only get one chance with Walter. Sunday, I got up early, 7am. I went into work, that’s right, to finish the labels for the CD. It was crazy hot in the office. I felt like I was working in my own sweat shop. Manufacturing my own bad CDs – ha ha. After that, I went back to Hoboken to do my laundry. I didn’t go to Nutley because it was getting to be late afternoon and I didn’t want to get stuck in holiday traffic.
Man, did I miss the Nutley laundromat. The Hoboken one was crowded and you have to keep putting the quarters in — over and over again! I’m never going back there. Do you hear me — NEVER!!!!!! I was glad to get home and just relax, hang with my cats and just be.
I forgot to mention that on Friday night I caught a little of Ghost Dog The Way of the Samurai on the tube. I own it on DVD but you forget about these things sometimes. Well, damn, I forgot what a great film that is! And the soundtrack by The RZA is off the hook! That’s a little Bobby Street talking to you. OK, That’s it. I’m going to hand out my CD now. Have a good one. God Bless America.
I finished my Christmas CD last night. Now comes the “fun” part, making the copies. The sun never did come out yesterday. And they finally released that Bin Laden tape, I’m looking forward to seeing his head on a stick. He’s a new kind of evil and that’s an understatement!
What else is going on? I may go home for Christmas after all. I’m still on the fence as to how it’s going to play out. I also got another Christmas Card yesterday. That’s really all I got. It’s starting to seem like a lot of people are already on Christmas break. My e-mails have dwindled down to nothing the last few days. God bless em, that’s what I say. OK, I’m going to cut this short today. See you on Monday. God Bless America.
Kind of a gloomy/grey day today on the East Coast. It’s hard for me to get going. I got three Christmas cards in the mail yesterday, that’s pretty good for a single guy, I’m hoping it is anyway. I don’t think I’m going to get mine out this year. I have the cards and Lord knows I have the time but I’m missing the will. I am working on my annual Christmas CD that I give to my friends. Last year I recorded a CD of me singing Karaoke songs. This year’s is going to be a lot more easy on the ears. As they say in the business, it’s going to be off the hook! So, that’s what I did last night. I like doing little projects like that, it’s fun.
I’ve pushed back exchanging gifts with my family this year. I can’t make it home for Christmas because of work. I’m used to it and will get to go back the end of the month, which is better, believe it or not. I’m holding off because I don’t want my gifts to arrive in a plain Amazon.com box, no love that way. It hasn’t hit me until very recently that this is my first Christmas without my Dad. It’s so weird not buying him something. I don’t mean to disrespect Christmas and the true meaning of Christmas but I can’t wait until the 26th. Good Lord, I just brought myself down. The sun better come out today or I’m doomed, ha ha. OK, That’s it. Have a great day. God Bless America.
