If you keep up with Oklahoma News, which I’m positive none of you do. But, if by the off chance you do; I’m sure you heard OKC Mayor calling all of us Okies FAT! No, he did…back in January. Actually, he called us fat many times. He also did it on National TV. For instance, he called us fat on The Ellen Show, Larry King Live, The Today Show, Good Morning America, and pretty much anyone else that would listen-just incase he wasn’t getting his message out!
Mayor Mick Cornett (the man to the left) decided Oklahoma needed to go on a diet. He pledged that in one year Oklahoma would shed 1 million pounds. I thought it was a great challenge so I signed up. I’m all about exercising. I’m all about eating healthy, so this was the perfect challenge for me. I even got Sister #1 to take on the challenge. Well the challenge has been going on for a few months and the newness has worn off. It seems that this whole thing has taken a backseat to the state’s other problems. I do not need to remind you that it is tornado season. We don’t have time to lose weight; we’re too busy chasing tornados and alerting people when it rains.
But to keep up the enthusiasm the media circuit has started up new buzz. This morning I received an email informing me that my boy AL ROKER from the Food Network and The Today Show is coming to OKC! That’s right! He’s filming a special for the Food Network; and they are having a casting call for people to participate. I guess Al thought us Fat Okies were so cool he wanted to meet us, and even film our story. Do I even have to tell you that I AM SO going to the casting call! You guys know I’ve met Al before right? Yup. It happened outside The Today Show studio. I was on SCT #4- NYC. I am positive the man remembers me. Suzy, Sista’ #1, and I gave him an OK shirt. Oh maybe he will wear the shirt Saturday? This weekend I’m going to my first, no wait second casting call. My first was for the Bachelor. Don’t ask. But the Food Network, this I can handle! Hey, this might even get me a step closer to meeting my cooking hero Paula Deen......
By the way, see those boys??? Umm that's the reason why she is my hero. Oh and because she cooks everything in Butter.
