Bossy has so much to tell you—about Los Angles and her drive up the Pacific Coast Highway to Palo Alto earlier today, and about San Diego and the women who slammed back margaritas while contemplating race relations in the suburbs last Monday, and even about Orlando and Avitable and the tale of Bossy’s lost sunglasses—but since Bossy is cross-eyed with
frozen yogurt fatigue, she will instead share an important factoid about XM satellite radio’s Oprah & Friends channel:
If you roll up the car windows and lean into your radio, you can hear Dr. Mehmet Oz whistle through his nose.

Has Bossy not heard of books on tape? It can save brain cells!
Kelly saysApril 11, 2008 at 1:30 am
When Suebob told me you were driving Hwy 1, I got worried. I’ve done it, both for fun and for love (my husband is a location scout). I get sick on the park swing, and Hwy 1 (aka Hwy !) is craaazzzyyy.
Glad to know you are safe.
Cindy Z saysApril 11, 2008 at 1:57 am
Now that is entertainment! 🙂 Drive safely!
Cactus Petunia saysApril 11, 2008 at 2:41 am
I’ve driven that road many times, and as a white knuckle driver of the first order, I can truly say I prefer driving it South to North…the cliffs don’t seem nearly as dangerous when they’re on the other side of the road!
heart shaped hedges saysApril 11, 2008 at 3:22 am
All the sun that was hiding from us came out today….I hope you enjoyed it, beautiful ride.
Remember us all as you drive, we are thinking of you.
reese saysApril 11, 2008 at 3:23 am
I got engaged in Palo Alto – wave at Spago for me as you go past!
Chesapeake Bay Woman saysApril 11, 2008 at 6:12 am
Bossy can keep us posted on the margaritas, the charming people and the missing sunglasses. I’ll keep us posted on the Missing Man Count.
If you lean into the computer screen, you can hear me stressing and obsessing.
Avitable saysApril 11, 2008 at 7:50 am
I love that drive. I don’t understand why people think it’s scary.
corrie saysApril 11, 2008 at 8:23 am
Leaning into your radio can only be safe if… you have your seatbelt on and your eyes on the swervy curvy road… well maybe Bossy should just sit up straight to stay SAFE!!
Karl saysApril 11, 2008 at 8:37 am
Now THAT’S a road sign. Bad ass.
The Domestic Goddess saysApril 11, 2008 at 8:42 am
I gotta get me some Satellite radio. It sounds fun. I wonder if you can hear him smack his lips, too? That drives me nuts.
mr.lootiatto saysApril 11, 2008 at 8:43 am
The Pacific Coast highway. Is there anything like it? WEST coast.
Although it can be harrowing…what a way to go.
Emily R saysApril 11, 2008 at 8:48 am
and then my sister said “you read blogs about Dr. Oz??” And I said, “not about him, just that mention him!”
Jenn @ Juggling Life saysApril 11, 2008 at 9:34 am
Whatever it takes to keep Bossy sane!
junebug saysApril 11, 2008 at 10:01 am
Gotta love those scrubs!
Inner Keening saysApril 11, 2008 at 10:04 am
Ok, I just threw up a little bit of coffee while reading about that guy’s whistling nose.
He totally weirds me out for some reason… has anyone actually checked to make sure he’s a REAL doctor, since she use to tout “Dr.” Phil, who turns out isn’t a real shrink.
All Adither saysApril 11, 2008 at 10:04 am
And a sexy nose it is.
K saysApril 11, 2008 at 10:06 am
Maybe he needs to use a neti pot?
Saucy saysApril 11, 2008 at 10:07 am
I think Dr. Oz has his nose so far up Oprah’s you-know-what (Saturn, I appreciate this is a family show) that he needs an Oprah-ectomy.
so NOT cool saysApril 11, 2008 at 10:10 am
Quick, send Dr. Oz to my house!!! I’m having all sorts of EMERGENCIES that coincide with your visit.
Will email with details later today … after making two dozen calls to try and salvage my freedom!
Alli ~Mrs. Fussypants saysApril 11, 2008 at 10:11 am
Does Ozzie know how we love him?
He whistles due to neti-pot over-usage!
Momo Fali saysApril 11, 2008 at 10:40 am
Sounds like Dr. Oz has a septal defect. Nothing that can’t be cured with vitamins and yoga.
Rayne of Terror saysApril 11, 2008 at 10:41 am
Oh my, you are so right. Dr. Oz makes all kinds of snuffling and whistling noises while his guests are speaking. Sometimes you can hear him EATING (walnuts or cod liver oil, fer sure) on the radio. I wonder why his producer doesn’t turn his mike way, way down or even off when he’s doing that. Don’t they know?
Jen saysApril 11, 2008 at 10:48 am
Oh you’re so close to my area! I feel your presence! Drive Safe!
Noelle saysApril 11, 2008 at 11:12 am
Dr. Oz’s nose sounds like an unpleasant addition to an otherwise lovely drive.
Adorable Girlfriend saysApril 11, 2008 at 12:10 pm
I love the Cal Highway!!!
Foolery saysApril 11, 2008 at 1:03 pm
Oh, and you get to see the state while it’s still (mostly) green — lucky you. In another month it’ll be mostly yellow brown, which is the real reason we still call it The Golden State.
Jami saysApril 11, 2008 at 1:11 pm
Is the number on that sign the count of the cars that DID or DID NOT make it through the curve? Just curious…
RP saysApril 11, 2008 at 1:13 pm
I hate nose whistles.
Keep those hands at 10 and 2, Bossy: no more leansies out the window, please.
Optimist saysApril 11, 2008 at 1:25 pm
Nose Whistles – hah!
Note to self: Must get XM radio. Have heard too much about it lately to ignore need any longer.
meleah rebeccah saysApril 11, 2008 at 2:05 pm
I need to get me some XM Radio.
Courtney saysApril 11, 2008 at 7:01 pm
I heart the PCH or Hwy 1. On your beautiful costal drive, you went through a small section that used to be my old stomping grounds from my college days…San Luis Obispo, home of the Cal Poly Mustangs. Just thought I’d share that with you!
I’ve enjoyed readying about your zigzag across the country!
Idalia saysMay 4, 2011 at 9:10 pm
Now I feel spitud. That’s cleared it up for me
