I watched the Country Music Awards last night. My head is still spinning from all that down home country humor! It seemed like most of the acts were playing to backing tracks. I hate that so much. Country music is like wrestling, it’s a cash machine. The singers look like models and it seems like nobody writes their own tunes. There were a lot of songs about truck ownership. I’m sure all of the singers probably drive Mercedes-Benzes. Anyway, who cares.
You know what stinks, why do I need to know ABC’s Elizabeth Vargas is in rehab? She seems so off the radar, just let her go away and get better without the press. Why is it a news story? I doubt anybody noticed or cared that she hasn’t been at her 20/20 desk for a few weeks. Once again, society stinks.
OK, time for something positive! I just had a great thing happen to be at Dunkin’ Donuts:
ME: I’d like a large coffee and one chocolate frosted donut, please.
DD: Would you rather have two chocolate frosted donuts? Same price.
Have a great day!
Billy Joel, New Year’s Eve, Brooklyn. Now this sounds like a fun concert! The pre-sale started yesterday morning. I found out about the pre-sale at 8 PM. Guess what? I ain’t going!
More tickets go on sale this weekend but do I want to be in the loser seats on New Year’s Eve? I don’t know. I don’t care about New Year’s Eve. I just want to see Billy Joel. My own fault.
Have a nice day!
What a fun weekend. Dinner with family, a haircut, hanging with my lady and on Sunday, I ran the New York City Marathon. Oops, I meant, I watched the marathon on TV. I also did some chores around the house and went to a soccer game. This is a photo of my nephew Peter after he scored a goal.
Ha ha. Good for him! He scored and ran over to us BUT the game was still going on! We yelled, go back, go back! The kid has skills.
I was looking through an old box and found my copy of David Sedaris’ Me Talk Pretty One Day.
It’s a collection of essays. I immediately dropped my important box project and read my favorite story, You Can’t Kill The Rooster. No Spoilers. It’s so funny it makes me laugh out loud and tear up.
My fantasy football team may have won this week. Out of 16 players, I’m in 16th place, ha ha. I won’t know until tonight. Fingers crossed! I need to break my 4 game losing streak.
Have a good day!
Some random thoughts while I’m not watching Grey’s Anatomy:
Halloween is over! Thank goodness! We didn’t get a lot of trick or treaters. I’m not sure why, it was almost 70 degrees. We had a trick or treater who was dressed as Miley Cyrus, complete with foam finger. The little girl was probably 9 or 10 years old. Can you say inappropriate? Her chaperone? Her Mom. Ugh. Parent of the year!
Between doorbell rings I got reacquainted with the app, Doodle Jump. Wanna see my low score?
Ha ha ha! I got a ZERO! You miss one of those steps and you’re screwed!
Darn if this Phoenix album isn’t good!
I can’t stop listening!
Laurie Anderson wrote a great obituary for her late husband Lou Reed. CLICK ME.
Want any Halloween candy? I have to get this stuff out of the house. Hit me up! SendBobaLetter (at) Yahoo (dot) com
Have a great weekend!
Today is the 13th anniversary of BobBorden.com! For 4748 days BobBorden.com has been bringing you breaking news on all things me. It’s been an amazing 13 years. I’m leading a charmed life. Who could forget the many times I’ve been given keys to various cities:
Or the time I ran with the Fu#king bulls…and lived to tell about it!
But what I enjoy most of all is the ability to dine with kings.
Thanks, me, for a great 13 and for 13 more!
Have a nice day!
