An update on Date Day . . .
We had a great time!!! We were #6 and #7 in the guaranteed line. Since we had 4 tickets, we "shopped" for new friends in the stand-by line when we got there. We "adopted" a neat couple from Santa Maria who used to live in Los Alamitos. (No, we didn't interview prospective friends!) Turns out they were a neat Christian couple..very active in the New Life Church in Santa Maria. She used to be a vocalist on their church's worship team, but not able to sing now for health reasons.
The show itself was basically uneventful. Not a single audience give-away. Boo-hoo. I'd have been happy with a bottle of bubbles or a box of paper clips! But NOTHING? (Well, one girl got a plethora of stuff related to Beckham, but that was a random thing.) Probably the most interesting thing was the sweet little lady who fainted in line. (She was sitting right next to me in a waiting area.) They had to call 911 and the EMTs. BUT, she refused to give up a seat at Ellen's show to go to the hospital. Very cool. Her name is Marjorie, and Ellen actually gave her a sweet on-air shout-out.
If you watch the show tomorrow, we are right on the aisle, one row behind the dance-through row (filled with VIP guests). Ellen walks by Lyn a couple of times. Way fun!
The woman who fell through the runway in a South Carolina fashion show was a guest today. Also the super-egotistical star of CRIMINAL MIND. Not impressed by him at all--but that's okay. He's VERY impressed with himself.
Matt Walker--pay special attention to the first experiment by the "Science Guy." You'll love it! Also, the Potato Gun. Ideas for camp!
Yes folks, it was a super-celebrity show today! But Ellen makes even mediocre fun.
Love you all...Thanks for the neat comments on this morning's post!
