Someone just asked me today what is was like to be on Ellen’s show. In one word: unreal. 
Even today it is hard for me to believe that it really happened. I watched this video when I was loading it and it seems like something that someone else did. 
Yes, Ellen really is that funny in person. She was also amazingly real and genuinely concerned. She offered advice during the commercial breaks (yes, they really do run out with make up and touch you up during that time). 
It still amazes me how in the process of chasing your dream it is possible to catch more than you ever dared to dream.
