Oprah Comes Calling
A Video Blog
By Mark S. King
November 10, 2008
Greetings, all my viral and not-so-viral friends! Yes, I do get flip from time to time, but blame it on my extremely good mood. Because this month my video blog features an actual, for-real phone call from the folks at the Oprah Show. Yes, the Mother of All Gab Fests turned to yours truly for ... what, exactly? Watch the blog and find out!
Meanwhile I remain the luckiest damn fool alive; my recent doctor appointment showed no viral load and more T cells than one man deserves (800+). I'd like to chalk it up to cigarettes and double chocolate brownies made from scratch (why oh why am I single with such talents?), but the name of the game, my sweet infected friends, is compliance. I take those damn pills rain or shine, keep the refills coming and treat my mental and emotional health as seriously as I treat this rockin' bod. OK, now I'm just giddy.
This month's video blog also features reminiscences on Louise Hay and her Hayrides in the 1980s (you might have read an interview with me about it on TheBody), and my gay brother Dick's visit with me in Atlanta (yes, I have a gay brother and his name is Dick King. Insert your own joke here.).
Episode Three: Oprah Comes Calling
I'd also like to say a huge "thank you!" to those of you who take the time to write and leave comments below my blog posts. Trust me, I read all of them (the nice ones repeatedly, and then I read them over the phone to Mom!) and I appreciate the support. We should start a suggestion box of things you'd like to see on my video blog (now just stop your dirty minds right there, you dreadful things!) or have me write about. I'm all about satisfying my readers!
Next month's blog may take a far different tone, I'm afraid, since I'm currently in Grand Rapids, Mich., helping my oldest brother (a straight one, with the perfectly straight name of Harold) get through final rounds of chemotherapy. It hasn't been easy, since I know no one here and he requires a fairly constant watchful eye. But the trees are turning and it is beautiful. Expect fall colors in my next video blog, and hopefully better news to share.
Meanwhile, please be well!
