Holy crap! What a night! I was up until 2am. It was the most exciting thing I’ve seen on TV in a long, long time. I watched the coverage on CNN, CBS and NBC. Dan Rather was the most entertaining by far! OK, the election…I conducted my own informal poll. Our intern, Jimmy, is from Florida and he voted with an absentee ballot. And Jimmy voted for Bush. So, based on that, I think Bush may just walk away with the prize. So that’s it for the diary today. I was watching it from 8pm to 2am, I’m so sleepy. I just remembered something, when I went to bed at 2am, Rather was still on the air. When I checked back at 6am, he was still on! So, I’d like to give a shout out to Dan Rather, good job!
THIS JUST IN: Jimmy, the intern, just informed me that his ballot was sent back to his house. It will never be counted! So that makes my previous poll results obsolete. It could go either way. Sorry for the confusion. Thanks a lot, JIMMY!
Hey, I was on the Late Show last night! I hope you got a chance to see it. That was the first time I’ve been on the show in over a year! Thank you for all the kind e-mails! Some behind the scenes stuff…The writer on the piece, Chris Harris, was editing right up until show time. The edit room and Chris really worked their butts off–thanks! I didn’t know I was going to be on until 5:15! Wardrobe slapped a shirt on me, the next thing I knew I was on TV! Man, I didn’t realize how much weight I’ve gained! I wasn’t ready to see myself on TV that big. After that I went to my cupboard and threw out all the crap. OK, back to the show, I was standing backstage and Don Rickles finished his segment and walked to his car. I was standing next to him and shook his hand. I love Don Rickles, by the way. And he looked up at me and said, “Good luck, Tiny.” How cool is that?! I laughed my butt off. So, to recap yesterday…I was on the Late Show and Rickles zinged me! Today, I voted. It really felt powerful pulling that lever, if you know what I mean. I know it sounds corny but it’s true. Vote today!
Hello. I hope everybody had a great weekend. I had dinner with my friend Tiffany on Friday. We caught up on things and talked about writing a press release. I’m going to work on that this week. I want to give a shout out to Mike McIntee, of theWahoo Gazette, for helping me get the word out on my site. Thanks brother! Saturday, I stayed in bed till 12 listening to music and then I went out to do my laundry. I was going to go to a party that night but I just couldn’t get motivated. So, I watchedTouch of Evil on DVD. Great film! Sunday, I woke up early–around 8am–and just watched three straight hours of QVC. Then I went to the A & P. Came back home and watched Christine. I also watched a lot of those Behind the Music shows on VH1. All in all, a great weekend! My goal for next weekend is to go for a walk. There’s a possibility that I could be on Late Show tonight. We taped something on Friday but as of this writing, I don’t know if it will get on. Check out the show tonight, just in case. Don Rickles is on…he’s great! OK, have a great day and keep telling your friends about bobborden.com!
Tonight, I’m having dinner with my friend Tiffany; she’s just a friend. I haven’t brought this up, but if you know of a nice single woman in the Tri-State area, tell her to drop me a line. Anyway, Tiffany is in the PR field and is going to teach me how to write a proper press release. My goal is to get this site reviewed in one of today’s popular magazines or newspapers. Entertainment Weekly or Time Out NY come to mind. I received an e-mail from a guy all the way in California! Bobborden.com is coast to coast! I love getting e-mail! I’m working on making this site grow by adding more features but I also want new visitors to experience the “magic” of bobborden.com. So, it’s a balancing act. OK, happy Friday! Have great weekends and there’ll be a new Bob’s Diary update on Monday.
Greetings, I must start today’s diary with a correction. Yesterday, I said we had a record first day with 20,242 hits. I’m still not sure what happened–I read the wrong line I think. The number should be 68. Anyway, that’s still great for the first day! Keep the e-mails coming – I love hearing from you. The response to this site has been great. Please keep telling your friends. To get the word out, I left one of my cards on the bus this morning and slid some cards under my neighbors’ doors. In retrospect that probably wasn’t the best idea. So, I’m also working on a press release. I’d like to end this update of Bob’s diary by saying hello to the nice lady I buy my subway tokens from. Hello.
First off, I want to give special thanks to Walter Kim for coming through. We had some major problems and were working them out right up until launch time. Thanks Walter! Second, I want to thank everybody for checking out this site! It’s been up for only 24 hours and we got 20,242 hits! Thank you! Please keep telling your friends to tell their friends… Other than that news, that’s all I got. So, I’m going to recommend a CD to purchase:Richard Ashcroft, Alone With Everybody. It’s really great, not a bad song on there. You can buy it on my site via Amazon.com. Just go to Bob’s DVD section. Enjoy.
Happy Halloween! OK, story time. When I was in the 6th grade I went trick or treating. I was with my older brother, George and his friends. We were walking around and I said let’s go over here. Over here was a dark row of apartments with no lights. They said no Bob; there’s no one there. I didn’t believe it and went anyway and they went to the next house. Now, I must tell you I was dressed like a devil and had on one of those rubber masks that you can’t see out the sides. The guys were yelling at me to come on and I walked towards the sidewalk and this big blonde kid dressed like an Indian came from no where and stole my bag of candy. I was standing there with the bag handles watching my candy run away. I cried and cried. Years later in Hoboken, some punks hit me in the head with an egg. To make a long story short, I think Halloween blows. Please send candy now!
