Welcome back! BobBorden.com Mach 2 is open and ready for business. Whew! It’s been a long time coming but I think you’ll be happy with the results — I know I am! I’m going to start today’s diary with a huge THANK YOU to my web designer/friend, Walter Kim.

“Walter Kim, Web Designer”


He made my vision a reality, he took my calls at 3am and most importantly, he made my head spin in the “BobBorden.com” logo. I’m so proud of this site and will probably never be able to repay you for all the work you put into this. Again, thanks.

I’m not sure what to tell you about first, everything is new. There’s a great bowling game in the game room, post a message on the board, read my press clippings, look at the photo of the day, go to the new store and buy something, check out my progress on my diet — Do anything you want, it’s all at your finger tips, it’s all new BobBorden.com Mach 2! Hey, that rhymed, cool. Man this is exciting!

So, I get on the bus yesterday, sit down and everything I’m wearing is dirty. I look around and it looked like the bus was driven through a swamp with the windows down. I was so pissed off! This is a photo of the ceiling of the bus:


“Dirty Bus”



Can you imagine how filthy it was on the seats?! On my way off the bus I told the driver about this and he couldn’t have cared less. He mumbled something and basically ignored me! I said to him in a loud tone, “Thanks a lot!” When I got to work you better believe I was writing a letter (with photos) to the New Jersey Transit — I didn’t even take off my jacket off. My jacket was dirty too! I’ll keep you updated as to what happens. However, I have a feeling what will happen, absolutely nothing. They say for every bad thing, something good happens. The good occurred at, of all places, the A & P. I was shopping for eye glass cleaner. They didn’t seem to have any so I ended up looking at window glass cleaners. I looked and looked. I finally found one that was free of Ammonia. I don’t want to harm my eye glasses. I put the cleaner in my cart and this guy said to me, “You know, I work with glass and that’s just about the best stuff there is.”

“The best glass cleaner”


I thought that that was very nice of him. I said, “Well thank you very much!” That restored my faith in humanity — For about 3 days, then I got on that stupid bus. Why is everybody out to get me, why, WHY?!!! AAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Internet Acting, thank you, thank you very much. That’s it! Let me know what you think of my site on my message board. TELL YOUR FRIENDS ABOUT BOBBORDEN.COM! Have a good day. God Bless America.

It’s too hot to sleep. The heat bounces off concrete slabs, penetrating flesh without remorse. Sweat on my brow, a constant reminder of things to come. Springtime in New York? Springtime in New York.

Sweet Sassy Molassy, it’s crazy hot/humid out there! The following photo is a recreation of what I looked like after I walked from work to the bus station last night:

Here’s the crazy thing about that photo — It’s unedited. “Boooooooo!” So I took it upon myself to share the love yesterday, again. I took up another small pool to buy lottery tickets. 325 million, crazy. I went to the old lotto store and bought 240 tickets. People are buying but there wasn’t a crazy line like I thought there would have been. Maybe that will change tonight. The lotto pool is the best thing going. I’ve never had so many chances at a lotto before. Other than that and talking on the phone, that’s about all I did yesterday. I’m cutting it short today because I’m too hot to think. The new site is coming along nicely and should be up very, very soon. That’s it! Have a great day. God Bless America.

Holy Moly, the lotto is up to 300 million! OK, here’s what I did over the weekend. Friday Night, I got things kicked off by watching MASH on DVD. I like that movie a lot. Saturday, I woke up and cleaned/rearraranged my apartment. I really cleaned everything. The cat hair alone took over an hour! What was once on the left side of my apartment, is now on the right. I also put in my air conditioner. And I cleaned my windows — I even got on the fire escape and cleaned the outside! I was like a cleaning machine. There’s only one way to top a day of cleaning — You guessed it, laundry. I drove to Nutley but something was different. The usually empty parking lot was filled to the gills with shoppers. A Kohl’s opened up. I may have to find a new place to do my laundry, the emptiness was half the charm. Don’t ask me what the other half is, ha ha. Saturday night, I cooked up some dinner and watched the tube. At 12:00 on MTV2, they had a show on called something like MTV’s banned videos. It was a show of all the videos MTV refused to play. They played them, full nudity, drug use and all. It was crazy to see that on regular TV. I’m no prude but if you’re going to ban a video for its content, shouldn’t you stick to that policy? It just seems so hypocritical. They also have another policy of blurring out the name brand logo of clothing. For instance, you’re watching a rap video and the shirt the artist is wearing is blurred because it’s advertising some name brand. Yet, the Real World series are just glorified IKEA commercials. Hypocritical! I had to get that out of my system. Sunday, I woke feeling like an adventure. I didn’t feel like spending the day solo so I picked up the phone and called my friend, Mindy. We drove to my new favorite town, Red Bank. They have a Restoration Hardware there and I was going to buy a floor lamp for my apartment. The lowest price floor lamp was $199. Crazy! That’s my lamp budget for the next five years, ha ha! We walked around, she bought some CDs, I bought a guitar tuner. We checked out some interesting and some not so interesting stores. We grabbed some Chinese food at a converted Friendly’s Restaurant — By the way, that’s the best place to get Chinese food, ha ha. From there we went to IKEA. I found my floor lamp:

Ha ha, It’s still in the box. You get the idea. I had a good time hanging with Mindy, she’s good people. Here we are outside IKEA:
I didn’t do much when I got home. Cleaned my bathroom, cooked up some dinner and watched some TV. That’s about it. Have a good day. God Bless America.

The lotto is up to 222 million! I have my fingers crossed. I’m psyched about the group thing I put together. That would be swell if we won. I’m not going to talk about it anymore. This is something new for BobBorden.com. My brother sent me his band’s CD yesterday. WWW.Aftershok.COM, I want to give it a shout out but I’m not ready to give a full review – I’m going to wait for the new site. Anyway, here’s the new part. I’ve taken a photo of his CD and in the background you can see The Majestic billboard.

The CD is great but DAMN that billboard!!!!! I’m so conflicted!!! So confused! Good, bad, up, down. WHAT’S GOING ON?! Internet Acting, Thank you, thank you very much! I’m cutting it short today because Walter is taking a knitting class today and can’t be bothered with my site. And on that note, I leave you with a Random Photo of the Day. I call it: Gene Simmons vs. Hula girl
(Gene won)

God Bless America.

Hi. I left off yesterday talking about the lotto. I love the lotto. I know, I know, the odds are so stacked against you. I don’t think like that, I think, hey, people really win this thing, I’m going to take a shot. It’s just so cool to think that by buying a one dollar ticket, you could win 200 million. I got a group of 10 people together at work, we each put up twenty bucks. And last night, I purchased 200 tickets. That was quite the feeling, let me tell you. The dream is alive! Here’s a meaningless photo of 200 lotto tickets:

I’m looking out the window at work, it’s April 11th and the billboard for The Majestic is still up:
I’m not kidding, it’s still there. THEY LOVE THE MAJESTIC!!!!!! This film came out December 21, 2001! I can’t even remember what I was doing in December! Is this some kind of cruel trick? Are the billboard laborers on strike? Did they really think that The Majestic would still be on people’s minds, four months later? AM I LOSING MY MIND?! HELLO? HELLO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Internet Acting, with photo. Thank you, thank you very much. I’m going to end it there for today. I can’t top that crazy photo of me. Have a great day. God Bless America.
