Again, I don’t know a lot about sports but I do know about TV. And I have to say that Fox’s opening of game 7 last night was absolutely the worst! They had some guy dressed like a wizard, giving the game-by-game highlights of the series. Why a wizard? Your guess is as good as mine. The woman co-anchor of the opening looked like she was dressed for the winter formal – she was so distracting. I’m not sure what the female equivalent of the male suit is but she wasn’t even close.
How did I like the game you ask? I don’t know, I watched something else. Ha ha. I enjoyed The Sopranos and Curb your Enthusiasm. That’s a solid hour and a half of great TV. I also watched this new show on TLC, Full Metal Challenge. It’s co-hosted by the old host/producer of Junkyard Wars. Full Metal Challenge is just a weak retread – and a total waste of Henry Rollins, the other co-host.
Friday, I got out of work and decided to pump a little money into the Hoboken economy. First stop, Super Cuts. And then I was off to the old record store to buy the new Foo Fighters CD. My hair has never looked better and the jury is still out of the Foo Fighters CD, I need to give it a few more listens.
Saturday — laundry. I didn’t do it last weekend; I’ve never had so many clothes to wash. I don’t plan on skipping any more laundry days. I made a few phone calls and had some pizza from the place next door. I went to the A & P after that. It was a solitary day, to say the least. I watched TV Saturday night.
Sunday, I forgot about daylight savings time and woke up around 8:30. I went back to sleep and woke up around 12:30 – that was a sweet feeling. I went into the city and played PS2 with my friend Walter. Good times. I said it once and I’ll say it again, Tony Hawk 3 is great! I got back home around 8:30 and ate Popsicles all night.
And that’s it! Oh, also on Saturday, I ate a whole box of Alpha-Bits cereal – NOT GOOD!
Have a great day. God Bless America.
Hello. How about that World Series? I’d like to add to that opening remark but what I know about sports could fill a thimble, I was in the band. I took some diary time off this week, it felt pretty good. We’re not taping this week and I just wanted to live a somewhat normal life. Writing this diary for all to see is part of my abnormal life, ha ha.
I’m so thankful/hopeful that the sniper was caught. It’s hard to comprehend why someone would do such a thing. I’m without words.
I’m behind on popular culture right now. I haven’t seen Punch Drunk Love yet and I haven’t picked up the new Foo Fighters CD. I did do one interesting thing this week. I bought some new shampoo.
Bob bought some
The good people over at Suave have harnessed the power of the coconut so I can have clean hair. My hair has never looked/felt so good. *Today’s diary is brought to you by Suave*
OK, I just wanted to check in – I’ll be 100% back on Monday. Have a great weekend.
God Bless America.
Hello. I woke up this morning, started typing my diary and I just stopped and said to myself, just take some time for Bobby. Call in sick, go pick some apples or drive up to Maine and watch the leaves change — just live your life already!
So, that’s exactly what I’m going to do. I’m taking this week for me. I’ll be back on 10/28/02 with ALL NEW stories and adventures. See you then.
Hello. I’m posting today’s diary late today because I was out on the town last night and because my site was down this morning. Anyway, last night — my friends Jay, Walter, Tom and I caught the Wilco concert across the street at Roseland. I like Wilco a lot. But after a long day, it’s hard to get into a festive mood. Plus, because we work so late and got there so late, we only heard 3 songs before they started playing encores. But, that’s our fault. I finally got to see Wilco and enjoyed them.
At Roseland, there are no seats. We were all the way in the back of the house and people were working their way in and out of the crowd. It was really distracting. People suck. Just deal with your bad spot, stop trying to one-up everyone else! I didn’t bring a camera. So I took this photo of myself holding the Wilco CD:
Bob saw Wilco last night
After that we had a few drinks and then I took off. I got back to Hoboken and stopped in Dunkin Donuts. I bought two chocolate donuts. That’s always a nice treat for yourself at 1:30. I bring this up because there was this girl in there. She got in her change purse and ordered one donut hole. I said to myself, are you f***ing kidding me? Good for her for not overindulging like yours truly but it just seemed like such a joyless act. Live it up, sweets! Order a bear claw, you know you want it!
OK, that’s it. Program Note: I’m taking Monday off to wash my socks BUT my webmaster, Walter Kim, has agreed to take over my BobBorden.com obligations. Every word, every photo on Monday will come from the mind of W. Kim — DAMN, this just in– Walter may not be able to do it after all. In which case, I’ll be back on Tuesday. Get all that?
That’s it! Have a great weekend. God Bless America.
I’d like to start off today’s diary by acknowledging how bad my Photo of the Day is today. Whew! I just took a photo of my CD player and 17 layers later, I had an Electric Company reject. Keep it simple stupid — such a true statement. I’m learning all the eccentricities of Photoshop. Cut me some slack!
I was touched at work yesterday — by the generosity of friends – get your mind out of the gutter! They threw a lovely surprise belated birthday party for me. We had cake and just hung out — two things that I happen to enjoy. Here’s a photo of the festivities:
L-R: Jonathan, Tom, Gabe, Jill,
Gerry, Justin, Lee, Jeremy, Eric, Greg,
Steve, Steve H. and Jim
Damn, I like cake. That’s my blessing and my curse. Thanks to all for the good time. I appreciate it.
Today is my brother’s Birthday. I was going to send him an e-card but then I remembered, I can just say what I have to say here. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BRO, love you dog!!!
Happy Birthday, George
OK, another short one – working on the photo of the day really messed me up. Tomorrow’s another day.
That’s it! Have a great day. God Bless America.
