The Great Oprah Adventure: Part 2

Oh mercy. I just received the dreaded call from Harpo Studios, letting me know that "due to production changes", they would need to switch us to a different taping (we were scheduled for the 11:00 taping on September 3rd). The audience coordinator suggested we move to the 7:00 a.m. show the next morning, and I agreed, although I knew we would probably need to make some flight changes since we are all flying back home that day. For some reason I thought we were all flying out around lunch time, but unfortunately Jen was scheduled to fly out at 7:00 a.m. So, I called Harpo back, but only had the option to leave a message, in which I begged, BEGGED for them to let us attend the a.m. taping on the 3rd, although I don't even know if that is an option. Yes, I am well aware that there are far greater troubles in the world, but please send some calm and positive thoughts to Shonda, the lovely audience coordinator who called me, so that she can put us in the September 3rd a.m. taping! I should have told her we'd sit on the floor if we had to!

***Update*** Crisis averted! Shonda just called back and we can, in fact, attend the 7:00 a.m. taping on the 3rd. Phew! As it turns out, this is even better, because then we literally have the entire day to enjoy Chicago.

Good luck, Heather! I am sure things will work out. Maybe you can go on the scheduled time and hope some people don't show. I am sure that happens often. You could always say you don't remember being called...ha ha!

Praise God! Glad it all worked out. Now.... back to my canning. :)

Melissa said...

Whew!! That was a close call!

Good work on the groveling, lol! Do you know what that show is going to be about? She usually has some big guests on to start the season.

Linda - - we won't know until we get there (what the topic is). I was thinking the same thing - - that the first month or so, she pulls out all the stops. They started taping the new season this week, so we're there during the second week. It should be exciting!!

Maybe you will win a new car!

I'm glad everything worked out for you!
