Aziz Ansari - Excellent Stand Up Comedy

I think that stand up comedy is precursor to reality TV, so I feel justified writing about it. (I mean, it is a real person talking about real things on TV, right?) Anyway, I watched the Aziz Ansari stand up comedy special on Comedy Central last night and it was phenomenal. Ansari is a genuinely funny person who will make you laugh out loud. His comedy style was a good mix of clean and dirty, and his presentation was strong. I really enjoy watching Ansari on Parks and Recreation, though, so maybe I'm biased.

I also recommend watching Amy Schumer's comedy special. She reflects on her Jewish roots, the situation with her ex-boyfriend and other genuinely funny topics. Her presentation is a bit lacking, but she is genuinely funny.

On a random note, my friend and I created a challenge to see who can do the most exercise in 100 days. This is going to be rough, but I am determined to win this. As such, I need advice from all of you. I need to purchase a water bottle. Yes, seriously. I'm so disinterested in exercise normally that I don't have a good water bottle. So, what are your thoughts on the following:

Is there one of these that you recommend? Does one retain the temperature of the drink inside best? Am I even looking for the things I really should be looking to buy?
