This may be the first time I’ve ever watched Opera, but I can’t possibly pass this one up.

I love the backgroud. It seems Victorian, I’ve always been into historical things. Although it does scare me at times. But I can’t wait to check out the whole video!

SQUEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!! im so excited! Jo was right though, every time we do “see” her she’s sporting a different hairdue! it must help stay unrecognizable in public! but her shoes are AWESOME! and that necklace is beautiful! Oprah—she is confusing me because i thought she cut her hair like Emma Watson’s, but its grown back again??? but she looks the same! i cant wait to watch! excellent pictures!

I think both women’s shoes are ghastly, tasteless and horrifically uncomfortable-looking, like the Cruel Shoes in the Steve Martin story. I will never understand why otherwise-independent women continue to buy into the fashion-industry notion that we look ‘sexier’ when we are wearing shoes and clothes that make it impossible to run away from a would-be rapist. But whatever floats your boat ::shrug::

The necklace, on the other hand, is interesting. The chain is unnecessarily busy, but I like the cameo – it looks like an Amazon throwing a spear. Most cameos depict rather wimpy profiles of aristocratic women. I’ve long been on the lookout for one with a goddess instead, but an Amazon would do!

On Dutch television, the Oprah Shows are always very old broadcasts. And we get reruns of Christmas episodes in Summer sometimes. I wonder if
Dutch television will broadcast this one soon. Hopefully, they will inform the newspapers and TV guides about this episode, or I might miss it, after all.
I really do want to watch it, and record it if possible !

PygmyPuffPia, do you receive the Dutch RTL4 in Germany? You might be able to see it then, after all.
