I hadn't checked it since Thursday, 4 days ago, thats way longer than normal. So I checked my e-mail this morning.
Guess who was trying to reach me on Friday? I had until Saturday to respond. And I'm finding this out Tuesday....... THE OPRAH SHOW, FOR THE FINAL TAPING OF THE OPRAH SHOW.... YESTERDAY! ARE YOU F'in KIDDING ME? NO, I AM NOT. AND NOW YOU BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY I'M BEV/LUCY RICARDO.
THIS WAS THE E-MAIL I SAW THIS MORNING, 5/24/2011, FROM THE OPRAH AUDIENCE TEAM:

Maybe I can laugh about this one day, just like I can now laugh about that Camping Trip from Hell. Today, I shed a lot of tears. But, in the words of my daughter, "it's not cancer mom, its just spilt milk." Thats why shes a straight A student, she's right.
#2, didn't have to see that the diet pill spammers made it onto my inbox, (like spam protection told them, "yeah, you can go on through to her inbox, we won't stop you, she really needs what you're selling").
#3, I didn't have to see e-mails with my sons progress reports until today, lucky him.
#4, thats all I've got so far on the "trying to find humor" in this Bev/Lucy moment.
If she gives away cars, I'll be at the bar.
