Friday! Fri-day! FRIDAY!!!! Hello. The messages on my message board seem to get stranger and stranger as time goes on. People are actually planning my weekend before it even starts! Calm down. I have enough pressure without living up to those expectations, ha ha. I can tell you one thing I have planned: Gambling. My friend Walter and I are going to drive up to Mohegan Sun casino at some point. I have a gambling jones right now. I need to sit down at a Black Jack table and work through some issues. I’m only taking a small amount of money to gamble. That’s funny, “only taking a small amount of money” – Like I have another option! (I’m very poor.) I wish my car were big enough to fit more than two people, otherwise, I’d ask some more friends to come. Nissan!

My bosses, Eric and Justin, got their photo taken with former President Bill Clinton on Wednesday.

Eric, Bill Clinton, Justin

I thought that was pretty cool. Mr. Clinton even went into Rupert’s Hello Deli to get some coffee.

Hey, Barber Shop opens today! I might go see that this weekend. I’m a big Cube fan. I didn’t do anything last night. I worked late, got home late and just chilled. I wanted to go home, fix myself some champagne and strawberries and soak in a hot bath. I had to settle for going home, sucking back a Coors Light and crying myself to sleep. I’m just kidding; I didn’t have a Coors Light. Hahahahahahaha. “Boooooooooooo, you suck Borden!”

I think that may be enough for a Friday. Tune back on Monday – I’m going to make a MAJOR announcement. I don’t want to give it away but I will tell you this, it involves a rap doll, a TV show and yours truly. Exciting stuff!

Thank you for checking out BobBorden.com, tell your friends! Have a great weekend. God Bless America.

Hello. I watched a lot of the 9/11 coverage last night. I’m glad I did. I learned a lot more about the people, the heroes and the victims that I didn’t know. At some point last year, I just got on with my life. I haven’t thought about the attack, the people or the enemy for a while. I’m just as in shock as I was a year ago. I’m rambling. I didn’t know what to expect from 9/11/02, at the very least, it reminded me to never forget what happened on 9/11/01.

I was sitting on the bus last night, I looked up and my friend Tiffany was getting on. She sat down in front. I thought about yelling, “Hey, Tiff – over here!” Then, I thought, why not exercise my power of telekinesis? Stop after stop — nothing – I was starting to get a headache. Finally, I got up, walked over and sat beside her. She still didn’t notice me! –So much for telekinesis! She finally saw me and we had a good laugh.

We were walking past a Mexican Restaurant that has outdoor seating. I walked past a person eating nachos
– just as he/she dipped their nacho with salsa. He/She lifted the chip off to their side. At that exact moment, the chip and my arm met.

Yuk!

Isn’t that nasty!? Where was this salsa before it ended up on my arm? Was this person a double dipper? This was Tiffany’s reaction:

Tiffany was amused by the
strange salsa on Bob’s arm

Oh, we had another good laugh! Damn salsa!

I hope you got the chance to watch the Late Show last night. Former President, Bill Clinton, was the guest. It was a great appearance, great show.

OK, that’s all I have today. God Bless America.

My thoughts and prayers are with the 9/11 victims and their families. Never forget.


God Bless America

I have nothing to talk about today. I didn’t do anything last night except go home and turn on the tube. I started off watching Match Game ’74 on the Game Show Network. I was surprised because Burt Reynolds did a walk-on.

Burt Reynolds on

Match Game ’74

I love the surprise celebrity walk-ons! That’s a TV tradition that I wish would come back. From there, it was time for Curb your Enthusiasm. Can’t wait for the new season to start! After that, it was time for the Andy Griffith Show.

I ended up falling asleep on my sofa. I woke up at 12:30 and there was a message on my machine. My friend Tiffany, returned my call from earlier in the evening. I only bring that up because, the phone was right next to my head! I must have really been out.

I think I hurt my tailbone yesterday. I’m not sure what happened but things just don’t seem right.

So, that’s it. Boring night = boring diary. However, I did enjoy the Burt Reynolds walk-on. Classic TV. Have a great day. Wow, worst diary ever, oh well. God Bless America.

Hello. On the surface, I didn’t have that great of a weekend. But if you were to look a little deeper, you’d find action, intrigue and betrayal. I started things off on Friday night. I didn’t have anything planned and I ended up in the record store. I was deep into the ritual of trying to figure out what to buy. Finally, I had to force myself to just get something, anything! I ended up buying Queens of the Stone Age. Coincidentally, they’re on the Late Show tonight. Anyway, DAMN, that’s a great CD. It was $9.99 and it includes a great DVD of the band playing live. I enjoyed a lovely burrito for dinner and enjoyed some good tunes.

Saturday, I woke up and watched this weird film, The Minus Man. I liked it but I think I need to see it again. The first movie of the day is always the hardest to get your head around. After that, I got in the old car and headed off to Nutley to do my laundry. There were only two people in there. I made calls on my cell while my clothes were washing. I was talking to my Mom when I noticed some planes skywriting. It was really neat! 5 planes, in perfect sequence, writing out this: “Guaranteed for 21 years.” There was a phone number afterwards, I never did find out what was guaranteed. When I put my clothes in to dry, I went into the pizza place next door for some lunch. Damn, they have great pizza!

I was putting my laundry in my trunk when I got a call on my cell. My friend Paula was in the city working on something for the show. Turns out they needed someone to do something on camera. You dangle that carrot in front of my face and my answer will always be -where and when. The time was 4:00 – I had to be in the city by 6:00.

4:00 – Got in the car and drove like a bat out of hell back to Hoboken.
4:15 – Park car, run upstairs and change my clothes.
4:25 – Leave apartment, walk to the PATH station.
4:43 – Sitting on the PATH train and it’s not moving.
4:55 – PATH train finally takes off.
5:10 – Get to 33rd Street and have to transfer to the B or D train to take me to 42nd street.
5:20 – Get to 42nd and go above ground to walk.
5:24 – Above ground, check message on cell phone. It’s Paula. Turns out she didn’t need me. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

I told Paula that I’m going to hate her until Monday. Then, when I got back to Hoboken at 6:00, I called her and told her I was sorry for saying such a thing. I’m not about hate, only love.

After that defeat, I called some friends to ask them if they wanted to have dinner with me. No one was around! I went to Boston Market and got some chicken.

Sunday, I woke up and drove to the A & P. I picked up a frozen California Pizza Kitchen pizza for lunch. I cooked it up and cut it. Huh, that’s odd, this is really tough to cut. I put it back in because I thought it was still frozen. Took it out and again, still very, very difficult to cut. Upon further investigation, I noticed that there was a piece of cardboard under the pizza!

Bob cooked his pizza on cardboard

I couldn’t believe it! The cardboard and pizza fused together to become one. I scraped the pizza off and put it back into the oven. What a mess and oddly, it wasn’t that good, ha ha. Bastards! After that, it was over to Walter’s house to play video games. Nicest day of the year and we’re playing games – for the second weekend in a row!

Bob and Walter play video games

I like video games. I got home around 9:00, talked on the phone and called it a night. I had a good weekend.

That’s it. Have a good day. God Bless America.
