I Squealed to Ellen's Receptionist

Oh you know, just a little trip.

Just me and the Hubby.

Couple days, no biggie.

Just going to the ELLEN DEGENERES SHOW!

No need to get excited.

It's only being taped in LAS VEGAS! At Caesar's Palace! In the Colosseum!

OMG.

Hubby knows that I've longed to see her show. Heading down to L.A. and attending a taping would be so cool.

Then, I saw the she was offering tickets to a special taping in Vegas. I got this crazy thrill of an idea that we would go. We'd only been one other time and it was a quick stop-over on the way to Arizona.

I filled out the form at Ellen's site and thought, it would be cool to go, but tickets are limited and I didn't want to get my hopes up.

All week I kept telling Hubby, we should really try answering the phone this week, Ellen might call.

Yeah, caller ID is our best friend and we rarely answer the phone.

Then Saturday morning I got the call. The girl on the line was just one of the hired help, but I squealed like I was talking to Ellen herself! I think I thanked her about 40 times, she was probably glad to say goodbye.

EEEEEEEE!!! I cannot wait, I love Ellen. I love her show. I love that she dances to cool music. I love her comedy. I'm so curious who her guest will be! I am going to guess and say Elton John and Bette Midler, only because they are currently headlining at Caesar's. Maybe the Blue Man Group will show up! *SQUEAL*

I could care less if the hotel housekeeping staff were her featured guests, she would make it so worth the trip, and it would be totally hilarious!

  47. Jamie said...

    sounds great!! You will have such a blast!!! Wooo!!!

  48. Mama's Losin' It said...

    Scargosun tipped me off...I'm not jealous. That's awesome. I have no desire to watch the show...now if you were going to be ON the show I'd glue myself to your side so that you'd be forced to take me with you.

    Ok so here's what you have to do...I'm going to mail you a cardboard cut out of myself (I've got tons of them laying around) and you're going to bring it with you to the show...along with every single letter I've written Ellen. She can't keep ignoring me like this. We'll get her from the inside. Good work Jen. ;)

  49. CENA - My.M.Spot said...

  85. Rose-Marie said...

    I'm laughing, because I've been known to do that, and if you told me ahead of time, I wouldn't have believed it. But just like those contestants on tv, there I go, squealing! yippee! even to a receptionist. You feel a little silly after, but it is all part of the fun and excitement!
