As the wise Oprah once said, "Every one of us gets through the tough times because somebody is there, standing in the gap to close it for us." Well, gentle readers, I must confess, America's daytime queen, Oprah, always filled my gap. I'm having a tough time dealing with losing her marvelous wisdome this year. Though she still walks among us, alive and well, I'm mourning the very real fact that she will no longer be sitting with me in my living room (well, on the screen in my living room) guiding me toward fulfilling my full feminine potential. Now, we all know I love a woman in power, and I just love that she's staying on top, but ... frankly, I've been on a bit of a cupcake bender dreading the days ahead when re-runs will run rampant and Oprah will no longer be filling my gap with all new shows.
