One of the downsides of staying in a hotel is that you run the risk of watching a lot of TV. But I've been watching Comedy Central--something I haven't done in years. I never realized how much I missed it!

Not exactly time well spent, but hey.... I'm catching up on some e-mail too. :-)

Anyway... I just thought I'd share that.

Oh, I'm back up in Truckee flying gliders--thus the hotel stay. I did some dual cross-country training today. Had a 3 hour 20 minute flight from Truckee to Spalding (roughly 100nm North) and back to Nervino (roughly 40nm short of Truckee). We could have made it all the way back, but I wasn't feeling so hot. This is a great area to fly in, but it's no fun if you're starting to feel air sick.

More on the flight later, including a GPS trace overlay in the map when I get back home. Tomorrow I go to South Lake Tahoe to fly a DG-1000.

Update: South Park is on next!!! I had totally forgotten about South Park.

Damn, you'd think I was maturing or something. What's with this?

I love comedy central...but, as I was just saying to my wife tonight, they seem to be doing not too well.

Just recently, ummm, maybe four or five months ago I heard they laid off a significant percentage. And judging by the quality of their ads (Girls gone wild, Movie nude scene videos...) they're hurting for sponsors.

Really...I only watch Friday Night Stand Up, Reno 911 (new pretty hilarious), and, of course, South Park.

Insomniac is one of my favorite shows now and I try to catch Conan and The Daily Show in the afternoons.

Man, I haven't watched Comedy Central since Mystery Science Theatre 3000 went to the Sci-Fi channel.

Looks like 3 comment spams up above here.

I watch The Daily Show as much as possible. Occasionally South Park, and Reno 911 has sparked my interest.

On another note. Looks like you got more blogspam and the three comments above mine.. I wonder if a comment Moderation module would be a good idea? That way the author would have to approve comments before they get added. I know that will greatly slow down the commenting process but maybe thats the way to keep this spamming to a minimum.

Goodness. My Tivo spends most of it's time on CC. Daily Show, South Park, Reno911, Insomniac, and Dilbert are getting recorded nearly every day. It reason enough to pay for more than basic cable.
