Letters to ELLEN from Chelle series: LETTER 38 (The Avengers)

Dear Ellen,

I keep finding myself waking to my mailbox every day to mail out a letter to you, but to check and see if any tickets for The Ellen Show came in mail each day, too.  It’s May 4th & I’m coming to Los Angeles really soon & hoping to make my biggest wish to meet you (on May 17th) come true?  (I wish for world peace, too.)

So, my husband (SuperDave) & I (“Wonder” Chelle) saw the Avengers tonite, but unfortunately, the couple next to us celebrated Cinco de Mayo (drinko-de-mayo) a day early & ruined the whole movie experience for us.(they were so obnoxiously rude)-no respect for our superheroes-the Avengers & the Rambler (you) & Agent Ellen (who has awesome dancing powers)-also you.  I think you really should try to hang out with Robert Downey Jr sometime!  That was so sweet of you to invite him to hang out at your & Portia’s casa.  And my husand & I agree with you; Robert Downey Jr should have to “star.”  (And I also think May 17th should be declared National Ellen Day.)  If I ever get to meet you, I’ve already nicknamed that “moment” of my lifetime to be called “ChEllen” as I already tell others I’m having “ChEllen” time whenever I’m watching The Ellen show, reading your book, etc as my name is Chelle & your name of course is Ellen.

Back to the Avengers, I can’t wait to see the movie already on DVD so I don’t hve to worry about any rude, drunk people around interrupting & I can really focus on everything.  (I did hear & see some of the movie, at least, & by the way, I’m adopted, but I did not kill 84 people like Thor’s brother did.)  Not all of us adoptees are evil in this world; I (always) try & hope to be a good person.

Tomorrow is Free Comic Book Day (freecomicbookday.com), so if you & Portia tag team it, y’all could get alot of free comic books, I bet!  Ellen, I keep having this dream of you & Portia playing board games vs my husband & me, but I always wake up before I discover which team wins (& still trying to figure out which game we’re playing, but I’m gonna guess a game with words since my hubby & I have been playing “Words with Friends” every night lately).

Ellen, may I please meet you May 17th, even if for a minute?  It would mean the WORLD to me!  And if possible, may my husband (David) & I attend the taping of The Ellen Show May 17th (this year 2012)?  We will sit on the floor (or) in bean bag chairs (or) stand-up, etc if all of your audience seats are already taken.  (Sidenote:  I did go thru proper protocl & requested two tickets for May 17th taping of your show thru your website quite awhile back, but haven’t gotten a reply yet, but don’t ever want to give up HOPE!)

Love & Peace,

Chelle

Letter 23 to ELLEN DeGeneres from Chelle series: Hoping

Dear Ellen,

I always thought you were high-five’ing that producer guy, so I’m glad today is High-Five Day and you showed the footage and explained how you weren’t really high-five’ing him, but more like shaking his hand.  (Not that there’s anything wrong with  high-five’ing; heck I’d thought this whole time you were high-five’ing him).  So, what’s it is it called that you do when right before you shake that guy’s hand, a lady throws up in the air something for you to catch with your mouth?  (peanuts,nuts,cashews,mints, or what is it anyway that she is throwing up in the air for you to catch?)

It’s so good to see Wanda Sykes on your show today.  (I love seeing comedians together having conversation.)

So, how was your day?  I worked osme, worked out some, watched t.v. some.  It’s supposed to rain most of tomorrow here in Texas.  I’m looking forward to CA weather (except earthquakes, which believe it or not, I’ve already been in one here in Texas & was even on the news with my dog, Prescott all about that experience); anyway, when I visit Los Angeles for a few days in May, I’m going to pack various clothes so I can wear layers each day; I’ve been to California once before; it was San Francisco during summer 1996.  I recall how the day began really cold and then warmed up by afternoon and got really cold again by evening.  I am beginning to wonder now if I should mail my clothes to my hotel before my trip?  If not, I think I might need two suitcases full of clothes to wear layers!

So, what are you doing this weekend, Ellen?  There are so many choices, including Earth Day activities, such as going to see Chimpanzee (which I definitely will be doing during Opening Week; I love apes and Jane Goodall is one of my heroes);  I’m working Friday, going to a reunion for all three high schools from my hometown Saturday nite, and hosting my online talk show (Coffee Talk with Chelle) Sunday nite; feel free to call in & say “Hi!”  – you can call in anytime between 6pm Pacific Time thru 8pm PT on Sunday nites (including this Sunday, April 22nd) @ (347) 215-7225 & check out my main website @ coffeetalkwithchelle.com where you can see info about myself & my talk show & upcoming book & more, but also you can hear me read any of my letters to you thus far, Ellen on there!  Just make sure to go to the main page & then look on far right-hand side of page where you see links listed & find “Letters to Ellen from Chelle series.”  Oh, by the way, I’m supposed to be going to my 20th high school reunion sometime this year; however, I’m not sure if that event will even be happening now since they are hosting this reunion Saturday nite for ALL class graduates for ALL high schools from my hometown.    So, we’ll see.

My hubby(SuperDave) is playing a video game; my doggy (Prescott) is sleeping on our bed.  And I’m about to say GoodNight & Sweet Dreams, but before I do I want to ask if I may please meet you May 17th when my husband & I have requested two tickets for the taping of your show when visiting L.A.  ***I’ve been thinking so positively that as soon as we even put in the requests for the two tickets to your show we booked hotel, flight, etc that SAME DAY in hopes that we will make it into your audience that day!  I believe ANYTHING is POSSIBLE!

At same time, I want to also let you know if you ever need anything, you can call me anytime, too!  I have enclosed in my letter I mailed out to you my contact info while at home & while in L.A. for few days in May.

Love & Peace,

Chelle

“Letter 22 to ELLEN DeGeneres from Chelle series: Got Talent?”

Dear Ellen,

Did yo uhave a wonderful Wednesday or just another day today?

I worked from home setting appointments for my boss.  Later on, my husband & I went to the new “In & Out Burger” located about 10 minute drive from where we live.  I’ve actually been to one before on the West Coast.  I rode in limo. that went thru the drive-thru at In & Out Burger in Las Vegas!  That was ALOT of FUN!  (although I admit I was a tad nervous when the driver was wrapping around the bend of the drive-thru wondering if the limo. would really fit & it DID!)  Anyway, it made a great cheat meal for me as I’ve been eating 3 meals & 2 snacks daily from The Fresh Diet.  LOVE that company!  They make everything tastes delicious!

My hubby (SuperDave), doggy (Prescott), & I are watching Britain’s Got Talent videos on youtube right now (don’t ya just love the Internet).  I’m loving these audition videos!  I’ve auditioned myself a couple of times for America’s Got Talent (comedy act), but even though I didn’t make it thru doesn’t mean I don’t have any talent, right?  I mean, for example, look at the Jabbawockeez!  They were turned down by AGT, but won ABDC!  This reminds me of why I love reality shows, especially those that give people a chance to make their life dreams come true!  Speaking of shows like that, that reminds of YOU & your show!  So, I wanted to ask you; “May I please meet you in MAY, Ellen? May 17th specifically, if possible; I’ve requested a couple of tickets for my husband & myself to attend the taping of your show on that date, but I understand it’s a wait & see if we get the tickets, actually.  I’ll keep hoping & believing & thinking positively!   Meeting you would mean everything to me!  Best prize of all would not be cash nor prizes but MEETING YOU, Ellen!  That’s what I wish for!

Love & Peace,

Chelle

I got to enjoy my favorite new snack, sweet potato chips today!  Continuing to love these whole wheat breakfasts; today was whole wheat blueberry waffles.  Also loved the tender beef fillet with barbecue bourbon sauce.  Everything always tastes so good, even the sides.  I had no idea before The Fresh Diet that so many types of food I enjoy could be made healthier and taste delicious.

Whole Wheat Blueberry Waffles with Pineapple & Blueberry Vanilla Ricotta Cheese
