Just Dance

Oh, Ellen!

You, I love. You make insomnia worthwhile. You make me incontinent with laughter.

Enjoy, dear readers. Ellen DeGeneres at Tulane’s 2009 Commencement Speech.

Found on Amit’s wonderful blog.

    Great clip! I don’t mean to get all philophical on you, but she really hit home for me when she mentioned that you have to be yourself. That’s been a major breakthrough for me, especially since starting my blog. And of course I love the fact that she does it in a funny way.

  2. This was super! Very wise beneath all the humour. Thanks:)

  3. @Era and Dipali: She is very wise, and wisdom is just that much more attractive cloaked in humour.

    And Era, I am in total agreement with you about the blogging. I think most of us find ourselves in a way, find a community of belonging through this exercise. I’m lovin’ it!

    I’ve been stalking you for about a week now, and decided I’d finally make an honest bloggerina out of myself. So I’m blogging anonymously, of course.

    Ellen’s great. I wish she came in desi flavor.

      Hey, thanks for de-lurking! Well, warm up anonymously, but let us get to know you later – deal?

      Yes, Ellen’s awesome. Am all for desi-flavoured Ellen as long as they don’t dub her into Hindi or Telegu or Malayalam. Should that woeful day come, I will plead temporary insanity and perform terrible, criminal deeds.

  5. Awesome speech.

    My favourite quote

  6. @sraikh: yes, that was hilarious! For me, “alumni, alumnus, aluminium” won for sure:-)
