Anyone watch Oprah today? It was the Favorites show and, thankfully, Tivo allowed me to fast forward so I didn't have to watch the audience stroke out with excitement. I can't abide by all the screaming either.

Many of the items seemed boring and/or repetitious. Bath products. Check. New electronic items. Check. Ugg boots. Check. Same ole, same ole. I don't even want that stuff anymore. I got into a frenzy one year and thought I just had to have the specific body scrub Oprah mentioned. Well, after searching everywhere, I finally scored some of it and big whoop. It just wasn't that great.

This time John actually did want one of the items though. And I am happy to report his daughter got him a Breville Panini grill for his birthday last week - thank goodness since it will now surely be sold out.

That refrigerator made me laugh out loud. Can you say "over the top." I mean seriously, who wants a LCD TV in the front of their fridge? One that plays DVD's??? Huh??? Oh yeah, like I need to spend any more time looking at the fridge. What was LG thinking when they made this thing? And what the heck was Oprah thinking when she picked it. It apparently even has a computer with recipes.

OK, here's an idea. How about a fridge that will tell you when things need to be tossed or when you are running out of something. A computer could send you a message that food is spoiled or even make a shopping list. Or perhaps it could suggest meal items based on the food contained within. Or maybe even slap you on the hand when you reach for the ice cream. Now that would be something.

    to me, oprah's faves have turned into the biggest joke played on america, since, ummmm...the pet rock! there is no justifying the purchase of even 1/3 of the things she ends up endorsing...much less a tv playing refrigerator. that much excess flies in the face of oprah's entire angel network persona. it's one thing if you're a ba-zillionaire, but i thought oprah was about the people!

    btw...did you see the show(s) about the hoarder? it's as if oprah's favorites show is helping america reach a crisis level with spending so that later she can showcase them on an episode entitled, "i spend too much on crap that should have cost me 1/2 as much as i doled out."

    okay...now back to regularly scheduled ranting.

  3. I had to laugh at this post. I watched the whole hour, waiting for something NEW to pop up, and nothing did. If anyone gives me SOAP for Xmas I will murder them. Can you imagine, when those people get that fridge home and they have to remodel their kitchen in order for it to fit? It would have ended up in my garage as an extra place for frozen meats, sodas & water. The dogs would get a kick out of that. Hey - maybe I could program it to feed the dogs through the water dispenser!

    I like your idea for a refrigerator much better! My mom saw the show and when she described the frige, I thought she was joking.
