As great as this is, if he's on this season, then I will not get to see it because I couldn't find Oprah on German television. I can get a tape, though, and y'all can tell me how good it is ;-)
Last night, after I logged off, I was getting ready for bed and I couldn't remember anything that I had done. Like, I would think "Have I brushed my teeth yet?", "Did I close the window?", "Did I take a shower?" etc. I was/am really excited!!
Sydney, you may someday find out that I am truely evil indeed. (And my apprentice as well)
Congrats anyways. :)
I am so jealous!
Is your screen name tied to the email account that you used when you emailed Oprah? It might not be too difficult to get your AIM name with the right tidbits of info.
I agree -- it's a little too good to be true. Still, if was him, that'd be cool. And I can certainly believe that you sent 500 emails to Oprah! :)
That's difficult to say. It is a little hard to believe that a guy with kids and a touring career is going to have AOL messenger. I think he'd probably try to contact you through other means, but you never know. You are certainly a model of persistence.
It's possible that someone could have been impersonating him, though that would be a pretty cruel and pointless thing to do. I'm curious, what time did this conversation take place, Sydney? Because if the chat was any later than the morning of 3/12 U.S. time, it's unlikely he would have been packing for Tennessee.
I'm sure we'll hear details from more official channels soon if it's going to happen. Congratulations again!
But if it was, and he does decide to do OW's show, and I was producing the show, I'd make you and your quest part of the story. Actually, you're the hook, and I'd bring you both onto the show.
Now, that would be pretty cool.
I think that if he would've wanted to contact me, he would've used e-mail. Isn't that good enough? I don't know how he, or anyone besides people that I gave it to, would have my screenname. Really, why would anyone pull crap like that? If this is a "joke," I really think that it has crossed the line.
I did receive an e-mail from "Joshua," however, that was when I was IMing him. I have sent him another e-mail since then, but I have recieved no response.
So is the verdict now that it was all a hoax? Whoa - what a vicarious roller-coaster ride, this blog entry. Sydney, I'll be all eyes about your next entry...
