Oprah will change my life

After talking to Paula this morning about how we are in desperate need of an oprah-style make-over I discovered the “Be on the Show” page at Oprah.com. While we didn’t manage to find “Do you spend too much time blogging and not enough time applying your eye-liner” we did find one for getting our whole families made over and we discovered an absolute goldmine of other possibilities. For you in the corner over there (yes, you know who you are) “Are you addicted to video games?” could be your chance for tv fame. I am personally going for the: “MOMS – Here’s Your Chance At SUPERSTARDOM!” which sounds like it might be Australian (or American) Idol in tracksuit pants and stained t-shirts with a load of washing under one arm. And here’s a special one for Big-P “ATTN HUSBANDS: What Do You LOVE About YOUR WIFE?“. Heheh.

    Hi, Claire – I’ve figured out the problem! I just got a failure notice, so that’s why you hadn’t received my earlier email. (suddenly eveything becomes clear & it seems smart to leave a comment, instead) In case you haven’t received my last email, the address to ship the cards to is: PO Box 1105; Truro, MA, USA 02666-1105. thanks loads – I’m so excited to send your cards out this season!

  3. Hey Claire,
    Just wanted to say the cards are beautiful…I just got them yesterday.

    Oprah’s page on family makeovers says: “Is the end result a family that looks mismatched and ridiculous? ”
    Personally, I wasn’t aware that families must match. It’s giving me visions of Von Trapp type clothing!

  5. Any clothes made out of my drapes would be quite drab and very itchy. Perhaps we could hide this fact with our fab-tastic yodeling?!?

  6. Check out Oprah’s best friend- “Dr. Phil”. http://www.drphil.com he has some great things on his site, too. I don’t know if it airs there- but it does here and man, he’s fantastic.

  7. Dr Phil fantastic? Eeeeuh! I think he is downright scary! Maybe the show is to American for my European mind, it gives me the shivers

    oh claire i just got my cards in the mail! i can’t stop giggling. i love the little detials! oh i love them…i’m hugging them right now *blushing* i’m weird… i know…. hehehhe!

  9. Dr Phil too American for European minds? Yes, you are pobably correct- he does have a strong ‘no-nonsense, let’s get real’ spin on dealing with life. I do not know about Europe, and I really do not like to generalize, but I can speak of the current winds of change in my own country- everything right now is gear toward being ‘authentic’, no airs or pretenses allowed. It is good- it is what we here in US need currently. Sorry he is offensive to some- I’m sure he offends folks here-I like him and his ‘take no crap’ approach to dealing with life.

  10. Dr. Phil scares me a little… how can one effectively diagnose a mental illness or disorder in the course of an hour, in between commercial breaks? Commercial breaks that beg you to eat more, diet more, take more pills, clean better, look better, try to be perfect…
    Claire, I love your site, I love your stuff, I love your fluff, and I love your blogs… from one illustrator to another.

    Is it Spring in Australia?

    yeah, dr. phil is a freak. big time. sorry vikki đŸ™‚

  12. Pains me non-a-tall. Hey- everyone has their own opinions- I think its great! It’s what makes the ‘blog’ world go ’round! đŸ™‚ Yes- I do see your point that it looks odd that he diagnoses folks in 3 minute segments- LOL… if it were only that easy, huh, but I think he by legal standing must demand more of his work than that- if not- I think he could get into some serious trouble. Maybe not- maybe folks sign a waiver saying they understand its purely for entertainment- and don’t buy a word he says??? Who knows- I just like the way he addresses issues with folks- straight on, no messing around… That is hard to do- we are taught ‘social graces’ which mandate we smile and tell folks what they want to hear- be polite… instead of being taught ‘truthfulness’. I think its called “Social Lies” and he helps to make fols face that and overcome it all.

  13. Well I certainly understand your point about “social lies…” Vicky. And being one who has had years of therapy with recurring stubborn issues, I am perhaps jealous of those who seem to have it all figured out in the span of 1 tv show!
    BTW, how does one become part of the blog world? I have a site, but I do not blog.

    Happy Halloween!

  14. I think it is time Oprah had a show about blogging. Put it in the suggestion area that she has. As a blogging addict, I think it would be a fabulous show! Maybe they could make us over as we blogged!

  15. It stung him, / the pathos of her keen hearing”), phentermine but it is a vivid portrait all the same, razor-sharp drulogies and as quick as a flea. The lightness of touch vioxx is the saving grace—narrated in standard prose, ambien this would be at once unremittingly drab and celebrex thoroughly old hat—that makes this doomed propecia marriage different from all other doomed marriages soma we have read about. It even makes itfeel viagra somewhat less doomed. Slight, and slightly phentermine weird, but worth a look. One thing I’m going

Having something like this where free direct tv it’s a weird kind of talking to directv strangers makes it even more difficult. free dish network There is a very real possibility free satellite tv of coming off as deranged, after digital satellite tv all.
