Lets Have A Little Fun Today


I think Ellen Degeneres has the greatest job in the world.

Lately, I have been exercising on the treadmill in the mornings around the same time that The Ellen Degeneres Show is on and I'm hooked. Not only is she hilarious, but the woman gets to dance EVERY DAY.

Ellen hobnobs daily with various celebs, dances with the people in her audience, plays "game show" style games and gives away fabulous prizes. She has this thing called, "Ellen's Twit Crew" where her "crew" travels around to different locations announced via twitter to meet viewers and give away corporate sponsored prizes daily. Last week I watched her give away a brand new, pimped out, GMC Envoy to a young single mom from Brooklyn, NY, who walks her boys to school every day and then herself to work because she can't afford the subway. Ellen even threw in a year long subway card for the entire family.

She opens her show with her special brand of Ellen charm in the monologue. She's so cute and I got a huge girl crush on this funny lady. Sorry Ellen, I don't swing that way but if I did, I'd have your poster hanging on my bedroom wall. She's really a joy to watch. No wonder the theme song's refrain for the show is, "Lets have a little fun today."

By far, my most favorite part of The Ellen Degeneres Show is her daily dance. She gives me a little bounce in my workout and makes you dance right along with her. And I couldn't think of a better way to start the day off.

To think, she gets PAID money to do this every day. Lucky lady.

Never seen her show... not surprisingly ;-)

Boston was good last week btw - only spent one brief night there staying in Cambridge before flying back... CT was okay but had a hell of a storm one night

But listening to all my colleagues struggling to get into work today through the snow glad I was there last week not this :-)

Yeah, she's cool. I think only Nazis don't like Ellen.

I’ve never have seen the show because of my present location, but I’ve seen her stand up before and she was really, really funny.

I have a lot of respect for the lady in question... no wait, I'm lying, she has a great arse.

I knew there was something about her I liked.

Nobodys cooler than Ellen.

Ellen would be the sole reason I would ever get TV service in my house. I've never once seen her show all the way through, and I am SO FREAKIN' JEALOUS of people who get to watch her every day.

Mr. Knucklehead said...

Yeah, I kinda like Ellen too. She's one of those people who you'd be really disappointed to find out is a raving bitch.

Some people do have great jobs, don't they?

Never seen a complete or even more than a passing of her show but she does give off a sense in the interviews of her by others that she has found her zen and is in a good place. i agree withe Mr. Knucklehead.
