My mother loves QVC. She loves it so much that back in the day we had one of those monster big screen televisions that took like 6 people to get in the house but was still probably only like a 40 something inch screen. Anyway, she would leave it on all day and eventually the QVC logo was burned into the bottom right of the screen. Seriously. So, if you were watching a program that had graphics like a football game and they put the score in the lower right, the only thing you could see was QVC.
Well, yesterday she told me that Gordon Ramsay had been on her show. When my mom refers to her show she is usually referring to The View or Ellen but sometimes it means Today's Special Value on QVC. I can't tell you the number of times she has stared at the television at 9pm just waiting to hear what Today's Special Value is going to be. When I am drunk enough I usually tell her something to the effect of it only being 9pm so they actually have two special values today. This is usually met with some kind of remark about letting me live in the house for free.
Anyway, all day yesterday Gordon Ramsay was selling some cookware set of his and looked extremely uncomfortable. Kind of like, I cannot believe I have come to such a low point in my career that I am having to sell things on a cable channel. Hey, he probably made a ton of money for doing it, but it does kind of cheapen the Gordon mystique doesn't it?
