Super Bowl? Super Boring, am I right?! Thank goodness for VH1, they had more excitement showing The Bangles’ Behind the Music. The only good part about the Super Bowl was the half time show. I’ve become a Britney Spears fan. She was something. Friday night, I started out my weekend by getting a haircut. You’ll probably be hearing a lot about it in the press. Jennifer Aniston had the Jennifer and Hillary had the Hillary. Soon, people will be lined up waiting to get the BobBorden.com. My friend Paula, gave me a coupon for $2 off at Super Cuts. I don’t mind saying, they gave me a super cut. Thanks, Paula.


Saturday, I woke up with a sore throat. I did my laundry and went to the A & P. I watched this movie called C.C. and Company starring Broadway Joe Namath and Ann-Margaret. It was a motorcycle gang movie, very bad, but Ann-Margert was very easy on the eyes. Sunday, again with the sore throat. I felt so bad I had to cancel going over to Walter’s house for the Super Bowl. I didn’t want to be “stuck” in someone else’s house not feeling good. I’m glad I didn’t go, I probably would have fallen asleep. Man, what a boring game. I did go for a long walk. That was my first exercise in a long time. It felt good to get the blood moving again. I also cleaned up my apartment. That was pretty much it for the weekend. Also, because of my sore throat, I didn’t get a chance to work on “Bob’s Diet” page, so that’s still in the works. That’s it. Have a great Monday.

Friday! I’m holding off on “Bob’s Diet” page until Monday; it needs a little tweaking. I don’t want to put out something that is less than perfect. I fell asleep on the bus this morning. I love it when that happens, I miss out on all the traffic.


Last night I didn’t do much. This has been a bad week for semi-exciting stories. What can you do? I’d like to give a shout out to my Dad. He gave me a fan to use in my car last summer and I never returned it, my car doesn’t have A/C. Anyway, I’m happy to report that it is in the mail! Thanks, Pops! I also want to give a shout out to my Mom. She bought some shirts and a mug from the BobBorden.com store. Thanks, Mom! Everybody have big Super Bowl plans? I may go over to Walter’s house but I’m not sure. I always like to spend it alone and rate the ads. I’m kidding, of course.

I walked by a drug store this morning and saw the huge row of chips and dips. That used to be my row! It’s funny; I never used to be able to walk by that sort of stuff. Oh who am I kidding, sweet Lord, please send me some food! Ha ha – I’m good, I’m good. OK and that brings this week to a close.

Bob’s Friday Cliffhangers: WILL BOB MEET THE WOMAN OF HIS DREAMS? CAN BOB MAKE IT THROUGH A SUPERBOWL PARTY WITHOUT ENJOYING THE SWEET, SWEET, CHIPS AND DIPS THAT ONCE RULED HIS LIFE? WILL BOB GET OFF THE SOFA? TUNE IN MONDAY TO FIND OUT!

Have a great weekend. I just turned the page on my Sports Illustrated desk calendar that my friend, Tom, got me for Christmas. Anyway, wow! If you have one, check out, Lujan Fernandez! Incredible!

I went to bed last night at 9:30! I started to watchThey Live, great movie by the way, and I just couldn’t keep my eyes open. The last two days I’ve been working on an upcoming piece for the show. Maybe that wore me down more than I thought. Always being “on” takes its toll on the body, ha ha.


My “Bob’s Diet” page should be up sometime tomorrow. I’m looking forward to talking about all of that stuff – it ain’t easy! Also, on the horizon is a very special addition to the site that, as of right now I can’t reveal–but it’s going to be awesome! Yesterday, while riding on the subway, I looked down and noticed that 99% of the shoes people were wearing were black. Isn’t that interesting?

OK, I’ll be honest: I’ve got nothing today. When you go to work and fall asleep by 9:30, there’s not really a chance that a good story is going to happen to you. Hey, this is something, I just looked out the window and it’s snowing! Anything? OK, go to the BobBorden.com Store and buy a mug for your coffee or tea. And my brother would like you to checkout his site, Aftershok.com. He’s a drummer in a heavy metal band. His site has a great opening. It’s no spinning head, but he’s trying. Have a great day.
Hello. I bought Bruce Springsteen‘s video collection last night. Too many videos! I love the boss, but I wasn’t happy. I should have waited for a concert DVD or something. The Beastie Boys’ DVD looked so much better and they really took the time by adding different audio and video tracks. Springsteen’s DVD was just 21/2 hours of straight videos and some live stuff. With that format, you really have to step up to the plate and deliver. Give me something a little more, make it a little better. I’m so angry, AAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!!! Internet Acting, thank you.


Anyway, I did a little arithmetic last night and if I start saving now, I can have a down payment for a car by 2011. I can’t wait!

My Skylark started on the first try the other day so I may have avoided an expensive repair, by doing nothing, ha ha! I saw some woman parallel parking into a space in front of my car. Apparently, and I wasn’t aware of this, the new way to parallel park is to go so far back you hit my car! Sometimes people really suck! I’ve had my grill broken and lights cracked because people are so STUPID!


Anyway, on a better note, I want to thank everybody for leaving clean messages on my message board. Thank you. Well, I just checked what I’ve written so far, it’s pretty angry stuff. However, I’m in a great mood. Looking forward to getting over the hump. I wish everyone a happy Wednesday as well. Also, I’d like to give a shout out to my friend in London, the Barber of Belgrade. Have a good day.

OOOOOOO, I almost forgot, to all my Chinese friends, Happy New Year! It’s the year of the snake.

Too many cell phones! I’m on the bus the other night, one person in front of me and one beside me, both talking loud on cell phones. And at that moment someone’s phone starts “ringing” Camp Town Races! They’re just talking nonsense too! I said it before, they always say, “Just got through the tunnel…” Do these people call someone after they use the bathroom? Because it’s exactly the same kind of useless information! Remember the old days, people got on the bus and went home. Now, they get on a bus and HEY, ITS TIME TO MAKE A CALL! IT’S RUDE!!! I shouldn’t have to hear your business and personal plans. Yuk. I didn’t do much last night. Just went home and, surprise, watched TV. I can’t even remember what I watched. I was tired. I think my body is still getting used to not having junk every five seconds. Oh sweet Lord, I need a woman. I’m going to delete all the messages on the board today and start over. So, please feel free to leave a message. Have a good day.

Hello. I hope you had a great weekend. I watched Gladiator over my friend Jay’s house on Friday night. Good movie, a little long, but good. That inspired me to buy Spartacus, now that’s a long film! You know you’re in for a long ride when the film takes an intermission! On Saturday I went to Ikea, again, with Jay. After that I went to the store and bought vegetables and food for my diet. I’ll save the details of that for my “Bob’s Diet” page, coming at the end of this week. I will say that I made it through the weekend without cheating.


Sunday, I had problems starting the Skylark.

It just doesn’t like the cold start anymore. I hope it’s nothing serious. It turns but doesn’t turnover. Something isn’t catching. Having a car is great but when something goes at this late stage it usually costs $500 — $500 that Uncle Bobby doesn’t have. I’ve been thinking about going into debt and just buying a Jeep. Most people think about getting out of debt, I think of ways to get into it. Such is life.

I want to give a shout out to Jay. He gave me his old TV because it was broken and because he was getting a new one. He thought it was done for. I took it to the TV repair store and they fixed it, for a good price. I forgot the name but it’s the store in Hoboken between 5th and 6th. Anyway, I watched a lot of TV. TV Land had a marathon of Chico and the Man. I watched about 5 of those shows. I also saw a little of Harry and Tonto with Art Carney. It was really great. OK, have a great Monday. Tell me about your weekend on my message board.

Happy Friday. This is it, my last day to eat crap. I bought some Chuckles last night, they’re a jelly candy, and the guy pointed at them and said, “I like these.” I said, “Yeah, they’re all good.” Just a nice little Hoboken moment for you. My dinner tonight is going to be White Castle. I’m going out with a bang.


I saw one of those “Mini” cars in Hoboken this morning. They’re the kind that Mr. Bean drives, cool. OK, I’m going to cut it short today. To make up for my short diary, I’ll respond to all and any questions you have for me, on my message board.


Friday Cliffhanger: Can Bob stick to his diet? Will Bob meet the girl of his dreams? TUNE IN ON MONDAY TO FIND OUT!!!!!!! Have a great weekend.

Hi. I was really busy at work yesterday. Making travel plans, running around and filling out some forms. It was a good day. I’ve come a long way from my mailroom days. Towards the end of that job I used to carry around an empty box to at least look busy, ha ha. Last night I watched Junkyard Wars on TLC. That’s my new favorite show. They have two teams and they go into a junkyard and build vehicles–among other things–out of junk and race them. Off-road cars, drag racers and last night they built hovercrafts! That’s such a great idea for a show! Anyway, check it out, it’s very entertaining.


It’s Thursday and I only have one more day to enjoy soda before I quit. Last night I mixed cola and Fresca. Yuk. That was a mistake and possibly a cry for help. I’m expanding giving up soda to giving up a lot of things and to start exercising. Walter thinks my “Bob’s Diet” page is a good idea and the more I think about it the more I tend to agree. It could motivate me to stick to my plan. Bob’s Diet will be updated weekly. So, look for that sometime next week. I want to thank Juli for being the first person, other than myself, to purchase a BobBorden.com T-shirt. I was so excited by that news, THANK YOU! Juli also left a very nice message on my message board. There’re some new things on the site today, check out: Things I Found on the Street and Paula’s Notes. And leave a message on the board, I read everything. There are some strange things on that board. OK, that’s it for today. Good day. THIS JUST IN — My boss, Eric Stangel, just bought a T-shirt too! Thanks!
