No Tickets for You

So I'm just going to come out and say it, I'm bitter and twisted that I didn't get tickets to any of Oprah's Australian shows! I've watched all of them (hang I've given up Saturday mornings to watch the marathons!), I've chanted the name, I've cried the tears, I've ridden the weight roller coaster (literally), I've read that biography (and put it down because I felt like a traitor) so damn it, why aren't I coming to her show.

Image source unknown.

Of course I know the odds, 20 gazillion people vying for not that many tickets but my glass-half-full-type of personality still thought I would be one of the lucky ones. Not so.

And then this morning, just in case I didn't understand the first rejection...

No words.


  1. They're just rubbing it in. And to risk the wrath of any of your readers in the US of A... why are the tickets open to them as well? We'd have more of a chance if we were only competing with people in our own country :).

  2. Tragic Nicole- try and hold your head high and see the sunshine through the tears. :) Find your new normal, and carry on...

  3. Yeah, I got that email too. Somehow I honestly thought I was going to get tickets, not sure why. And for what it's worth, I put you as my +1. So basically you lost twice - sorry.
