Oprah! Oprah! Oprah!!!!!

Yep. I saw lady O today. It was amazing!!!

We left San Diego at around 3 a.m. and I managed to get us there around 5:30 a.m and the waiting began. And we waited, and waited, and waited and waited.

Finally around 7 we managed to get on a bus. And then we waited and waited and waited. Then we got inside the Kodak theater and we waited and waited more.

By this time, I was tired and hungry but my excitement kept me fueled for a while.

At 10, Oprah made her appearance the audience went WILD! I'm so not kidding. And for the next 45 minutes we laughed, we laughed, and laughed some more. The show is a well-oiled machine and the time flew by.

And now here's a few things about Oprah you probably don't know: She has a potty mouth. She dropped "bitch" and "ass" a few times.

* She's also very, very particular. She recounted this story about how Gayle wanted some monkey bread and how tired she was. I'm amazed that she and Gayle are still friends. She's also very bossy.

Despite all that, it was worth EVERY second!

Glad you finally got to see her. Oh, and monkey bread? It's like the DNA of baked goods. My niece learned to make monkey bread (in home ec class I assume, as opposed to it being a family recipe -- her mom is too much of a Rachel Ray fan to make that on her own) and the last time I visited she wanted to make monkey bread all. the. time.

And a little of that stuff goes a long way.
