Favorite Things--Shmavorite Things...you can keep the 3D TV--I have no use for a dog colored sweater--too many calories in the pot pie--what if I don't live long enough to appreciate the unveiling of the Bug in May 2011? God knows I couldn't afford the invoice from the IRS on the items I could have scored had I been in the audience.
While I appreciated Mama Oprah Claus stripping down to her red-Christmas-themed gown for the Ultimate Favorite things, my ultimate favorite thing was Oprah's Favorite Things: The 2008 Edition...when Oprah Claus informed the salvitating audience that due to the economy, she was instead showering them with gifts from the heart. The looks on the faces of that audience were priceless and by far the best gift I've ever received from Lady O. Coming in a close second--the guests she's showcased thus far in this her final season.
