Oprah’s favourite Aussie things
I really miss Oprah.
1pm is just not the same. I turn on the TV at 12.58pm, remember it all ended. She’s not there. My shoulders slump and I shuffle back to my desk.
So, last week when her Favourite Things: 2011 gift guide was released with nary a squealing audience being handed the keys to a new car in sight, I may have shed a tear or three.
It’s not that I ever imagined myself being on the receiving end of SO MUCH giving. It’s just that I really did get a kick out of seeing others being spoilt rotten.
As I browsed through this year’s gift guide online, I thought to myself, I can actually imagine myself buying this stuff … or sending a strong hint in the right direction.
As I continued to scroll, I may have squealed … Australia must have left an impact on Oprah. There are four items on the 80-strong list that have an Australian link. Oprah, this almost makes up for overlooking my invite to one of your Australian shows last December. Almost.
So, are you with me? Do you miss Oprah? Do you wish she could do a Favourite Things episode for old time’s sake?
