Anyway, once I added half a can of pasta sauce, it wasn't bad at all. So I'm wondering why can't I cook like this all the time? It's certainly inexpensive.

An interesting item from The Consumerist: The Kuku Alarm Clock
It's in the shape of a bird. When the alarm goes off, it lays eggs and it doesn't stop chirping until you've put all the eggs back into its butt. So by the time you've gathered up all the eggs from wherever they've bounced and rolled and by the time you've returned all the eggs to the clock, you should be quite awake.
Well, I don't need anything so fancy. I have a clock radio, but if I absolutely have to wake up, I have a retro-looking wind-up alarm clock that's really loud. (I was surprised to find it at Target. Nearly every clock is electric or battery-operated these days.)
