Life Is Tough

See these smiling, joyous faces? They won't be around this year, because Oprah is no longer doing her Favorite Things, thanks to the flatlining economy. Well, technically she is, but it's all going to be stuff she dug out of a dumpster in her studio's back alley. According to Harpo, the show "will showcase some of Winfrey's things that cost next to nothing, including a special gift that won't cost a thing."

Did you hear that? Hugs for everyone!

Is it so wrong that I want to see a fat Midwestern housewife with a GED get her hopes dashed in front of the entire world towards the end of the show when she figures out she's been jumping up and down and screaming about nothing?

You could always just put your TV inside your fridge.

That's disgusting TS. :-p

STM I really do think he is King Douche of the Douches. But when he does an impression of someone whose ego makes them a little douchey - it's dead-on.

sar, i thought it was a GPS. You know, just in case your fridge started running. BA DA CHING!!!111

Please, like that ho cannot afford to give good gifts to her audience. I would stomp my feet and hold my breath if I was in the audience for that show and got shafted.

No. 13 oilybohunk7 says:

I don't have a TV in my fridge but I do have a TV in my kitchen. It is on a swivel so I can watch it in the food preparation area and the eating area. It makes me feel like a queen. I'm still holding out for a TV in my bathtub but that is a little tricky.

And no, Stoney, it isn't so wrong.

If there was a way I could soak in the tub while simultaneously watching Intervention, blogging on mollygood, smoking cigarettes and joints and drinking red wine, I would like it to happen now please.

No. 16 stopthemadness says:

stoney, that is the best idea i've ever fucking heard.

(just sub the wine for scotch.)

a tv in the kitchen is mollygood. a tv in a fridge is mollybetter. a fridge in a tv that has joint rolling capabilities is mollybest.

No. 17 Stoney says:

The part about red wine could easily be subbed for anything alcoholic, and in my case, Miller Lite, Bourbon and Coke, red wine, or vodka and red bull will do. Yeah, I'm classy like that.

No. 18 sar says:

LUSH Bath Bombs. A clean bathtub with no man-dirt in it. Amaretto and gossip rags. Portable DVD player perched atop the potty, remote on the side of the tub. Evenings free to soak and lounge. Cell phone turned off.

I miss being single and depressed.

No. 20 Be Adequite! says:

Sar- that sounds FANTASTIC. My BF hates the Lush products (they DO annoy his allergies) so rarely get to use them anymore.

Add some chocolate ice cream somewhere to that mix and that sounds like a perfect evening!!!

You know what's my favorite thing? Turning the channel when I see Oprah's face on the screen.

No. 22 Sarah says:

I had actually never heard of "Oprah's Favorite Things" until last year. Then the village of primitives that told me about it threatened to stone me to death for not knowing. It was very embarrassing.

No. 23 Stoney says:

Hello, you must not be a loser with no life if you're unaware of Oprah's Favorite Things. Freak.

Stoney, would you please go tell that to the trolls that are still coming through the Rosie portal?

No. 25 payter says:

One of my friends got to be on a Oprah's favorite show from a few years ago. She got a lot of stuff - and sold a bunch of it too.
Also I had two neighbors growing up who were there when Oprah gave away the cars.
I would think now more than ever she would want to be giving stuff away. Whatever.
Sarah, maybe we need to super glue the portal closed?

maybe duct tape!

No. 27 sar says:

i meant maybe duct tape the portal - but it's also possible oprah will be giving it away. so my comment works on whatever.

No. 28 silent noodles says:

Duct tape dolls for EVERYONE! Once when I was a kid my family went on a road trip. When we got to the hotel my sister realized she didn't have her favorite doll to sleep with. So my dad, the MacGyver wino that he is, drew a little face on a wine cork and my little sister slept with it. ahh memories…

Haha, that's the kind of story that will come in handy when I shortchange my own children, which I certainly plan on. :)
