So, I started watching that Jay Leno show, because it's on at 2am when nothing else is.

I had always assumed, when watching the Daily Show, that the longer, more popular late night comedy shows like Jay Leno's and Connan O'Brian's were more high quality, more sophisticated, etc.

Boy was I wrong.

I am just blown away blown away by how phenomonoly not-entertaining that show is. Not only is he painfully not funny, but having an extra half hour in the show only makes him fill it up with worthless crap. Some of his sophisticated guests included a competitive eating couple, and a guy that can swallow fish and spit them back up still alive. Oh, and they have time to have a "musical" guest.

Now, I flip it on out of morbid fascination. I just keep expecting the audience to stone him one of these days, but for some strange reason, it has not happened yet.

So... I have a confession to make. I did something... shameful tonight. I...
I ordered something from an infomercial.

But wait, there's more!

It was the commercial for those space saver thingies. The bags that have special holes in them to let all the air out but not back in. I thought they would be really great for burning man, and it was like $20 for a whole bunch. So I figured that I'd go crazy, and see how it goes. I feel weird about it though. Like, I don't know what kind of person orders things from infomercials, but I don't think I want to be one.

I've been tempted in the past. I really want one of those PastaPro things. The pot that has the lid that locks on and has holes in it to drain pasta. I make lots of speghetti, and I hate cleaning strainers. The pasta gunk always gets stuck in the mesh.

Anyway, we'll see. If it's not cheesy crap, I might go for the PastaPro. Shhh. Don't tell anyone.
