I love Ellen!

Ok, this is SUPER late.  But I'm thinking, "better late than never," right?

Back in early September my homies and I took a trip to the Ellen Degeneres Show.  It was the bomb.com (not an actual website)!  It was my second time seeing Ellen.  Two years ago, one of these homies and I went to Ellen's 900th show.  Steve Carrell was the guest and I was selected to be part of a group of people with potential to be contestants in a game! Ultimately, two other people were chosen but the experience was still fantastic.

So when I learned of another opportunity to visit Ellen, I jumped on it.  The entire week before I had a hunch it was going to be premier week.  Well, whadaya know, it was the season premier!  Ashton Kutcher was the guest.  To tell you the truth, I wasn't terribly thrilled to see him but it was still interesting.  Ellen's usual DJ, Tony, was working on a movie so will.i.am filled in.  There was also a pretty lengthy human interest story about a woman who does incredible things for the students at the school where she serves as principal.  After her story, and after Target donated a bagillion dollars to the school, we all got $100 Target gift cards.  Score!   

I have to tell you friends, my favorite part of seeing Ellen is the dancing.  We spent about an hour before the show just dancing, singing, and getting pumped up.  Then during commercials we stand up and dance again.  There are few things as fun as dancing at the Ellen Degeneres Show.

Turns out Ellen's facebook page has pictures of audience members dancing.  Check us out!



Front row, baby!
