So, i can't believe i haven't shared my news with ya'll.... guess who is going to
yep!  That would be ME!  OMG, i am so excited.  I DVR her show everyday!  I worked across the street from HARPO for 5 years, and i never saw her or her show ... (i finally saw her in person last summer at the opening of Billy Elliot here in chicago- her and Elton John and the Bachelorette Jillian) haha!

Side note:
My mom thinks i work for Oprah. (she doesn't understand what i do for a living)
 when Oprah leaves Chicago- Rosie O'Donnell is taking over HARPO studios with her own talk show.. my mom says:  Jessica you should really try to work for Rosie since Oprah is leaving..... OH!!  Ok mom, good idea...
i digress.

So I have been trying to get OPRAH tickets for years!  they are free, you go online and just register and hope for the best... it never worked out. Then i find out about this final taping- 2 shows at the United Center (home to the blackhawks and bulls)- HUGE.  I go on... sign up to try to win tickets... alas... the email: 

Thank you for your interest in attending the May 17, 2011, The Farewell Season: Oprah’s Surprise Spectacular taping at the United Center.

Unfortunately, we were unable to accommodate your request for this ticket reservation window due to overwhelming demand. We will email you if more tickets become available for this taping at the United Center.

booo!!!  it's fine.. i didn't think i would win... so many people want to go to this dang thing!  but then... 3 days later i get this email:

Thank you for your interest in The Farewell Season: Oprah's Surprise Spectacular taping at the United Center on May 17, 2011. We understand your original request was not selected, however, we are able to process your ticket request at this present time.

woohooooo!So i call my friend Colie- (she tried for tickets too). i am taking her- we are equal lovers of the show.. and we screamed and yelled and got excited like we just got tickets to her favorite things show..... "You get a car... you get a car".... "dude, we are gonna win a car.."  "OR A TRIP!"  "or an ipad!"   yeah.. we went a bit crazy.

Needless to say we don't know what is happening in this show- if we are gonna win a car or not.  but no one knows!  Not even Oprah.  This show is a surprise - all of it.. only the producers know whats up... you can read about it HERE

OMG. do you think Paul Simon will be there?  I bet Paul Simon will be there- remember when i was trying to win tickets to his show?  HE WILL BE IN CHICAGO ON MAY 17th..
Ok.. i could go on and on... i'll try to sneak some pictures of the show with my little phone (no cameras allowed). weeeeeeeeee!
