Conan O'Brien starts comedy tour, but misses out on Utah's killer comedic atmosphere…

This morning, Conan, through his Twitter account, announced his “The Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour”.  He’ll be touring all around the country (and into parts of Canada).  Unfortunately, he’s not coming to Utah…yet.  I’ve created a Facebook group, called “Conan O’Brien should add Utah as a stop on his comedy tour“.  I’ve emailed Mike Mitchell (the artist in charge of the “I’m with Coco” campaign, to see if he’d let me use his graphic for my Facebook group…waiting on reply…

Conan's last Late Night show

conanI’m not going to recap last night’s show.  I just want to mention that I’ve watched Conan ‘O Brian for over 10 years, now, and it’s great to see that he’ll take over Jay Leno’s spot as host on the Tonight Show.

Conan’s best quality is his self-depreciating manner.  He never builds himself up to be more than his guests and is terrific at improvising.

Jimmy Fallon will take Conan’s place, and he’ll do a fine job.

So this post is just sort of a cheers to Conan and a good luck to Jimmy.

Running the Sahara

Wendy and I just watched Running the Sahara, a documentary that follows the expedition of three men who log 4300 miles running across the countries of Senegal, Mauritania, Mali, Niger, Libya, and Egypt.

Watching this movie made me feel like a wuss.  At one point, when one of the team wants to quit, the outspoken Charlie Engle quips that if he wants to quit, he should just go and run a marathon where there are water stations at every mile.  Maybe 26.2 miles isn’t such a big deal, after all.

Between this and Spirit of the Marathon, I should be pumped to go for a run…any day now…

Just had a flash of a Chico commerical song go through my head…

Maybe some of you remember this commercial jingle.  Maybe some of you can’t get the song out of your head:

“We treat your feet

We treat your feet

It’s the only thing we do at the Golden State Foot Clinic

We treat your feet”

You’re welcome.
