Oprah!

Yesterday I went to see Oprah taped with two friends, Kelli and Victoria, from Arizona. I've tried for literally a year to get tickets without success. Victoria has a connection with an Oprah producer and was able to get us tickets!

Eric went to work a little later than usual, and my neighbor Kelly watched the girls once he went to work, so I could go. I left my house at 5:30 a.m. and was in line outside Harpo Studios by 6:15 a.m. (As a side note, the woman at the front of the line got there at 4:45 a.m. Plain crazy!) Kelli and Victoria met me in line and they let us in at about 7:00 a.m. -- in to the waiting room. We went into the actual studio sometime around 8:45 a.m.

There was an audience person who "warmed us up" and then they told us the guest was Ricky Martin. OK, that could be fun. But wait. The subject for the show? Child sex trafficing. It's something Ricky Martin is working hard to stop and after the show I do have a great deal of respect for him. But geez. We wanted Jennifer Aniston or Sarah Jessica Parker and lots of fabulous giveaways.

Once the taping ended, Oprah went and changed clothes and so did Ricky. He then performed two songs that are going to be used for different shows. He really is an amazing entertainer and despite the less-than-cheery topic it was really fun! It will air on October 11 and we are sitting behind Oprah if you'd like to see if you can catch a glimpse of us.
