Michael and I watched the first show of Survivor’s new season last night. It’s pretty much the only “reality” television show that I can stand to watch. I’m impressed they are able to keep it interesting. But where do they find these people? One woman is afraid of leaves? Are they paying her a lot of money to have this affliction? And Shane, the marketing guy, is apparently originally from Nebraska, my homeland. Not that all Nebraskans are alike but I think that Los Angeles (his current home) may have zapped whatever Nebraskan he might have had in him.

Go read Michael’s write-up about last night’s show. He’s as hilarious and witty as ever.
