    Rant of the day: Oprah

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Am I the only one thats over the whole Oprah Winfrey thing. She may well be a nice enough person but Im sure I would be extremely popular if i gave away heaps of expensive stuff and free trips to the other side of the world. But shes treated like royalty; way in excess of her claim to fame.

    Sure shes going to bring millions of tourist dollars - perhaps. We are on the other side of the world - a world that is still recovering from a GFC (I think).

    Its not just about the money. *>:(

    End of rant (except to finish with bah, humbug!)

    Im sure youre not the only one over it.

    However, weve got our heads in the er...water at the moment here and so I think it is the last thing on everyones mind. Even Christmas seems to have been put on the back burner a bit as people are struggling to cope with isolation and getting around due to this continued flood. Were still watching the river flow past where it shouldnt be!!

    So, if youd like to be completely removed from the Oprah circus...come and stay here for a week or so! ;D

    Thanks for the reality check Scoots. I think I needed that.

    I hope everything will soon be going...er...swimmingly.
    At least you still have net access and coffee supplies (I trust).

    My nose is still out of joint that she didnt stop in on Saturday for a coffee.
    I realise though that the minders from Maccas probably are responsible for that.

    I think shes easy enough to ignore flynn.

    Try changing channels.

    I was over her before she got here. I have forced myself to watch 3 episodes over the years to A. See what the hype was about and B. Make sure I couldnt be accused of being cynical without a reason.

    I will never watch another show and would hope she and her opinions and on and off again weight loss circus stays away.

    I was amused that Hugh Jackman managed to scone himself on the way in... ;D

    Cheers

    Difficult to ignore when barely a minute passes without a news bulletin reporting her next move.

    Change channels? I value my life and marriage a bit more than that. I retreated tactfully to the study so SWMBO could watch Ch 10.

    To her credit, she eventually got sick of seeing people go hysterical over giveaways and didnt last the distance.
