To me, nothing says summer like sitting in the house watching reruns of The Oprah Winfrey Show. These are my favorite of Oprah’s (real) Favorite Things for Summer, in no particular order.

1. Clarins sun-care products
Stedman loves the sun, and Oprah says he slathers Clarins sun-care products from head to toe. She took his advice and started using it too. I’m not sure about this product specifically, but I enjoy knowing that (a) Oprah takes advice, and (b) she watches Stedman slather himself from head to toe. (Sometimes I worry about those two.)

2. A wide-brimmed canvas hat
”A good hat needs to make some serious shade,” Oprah says. I’ll be honest — this bothers me. Once again, Oprah is forced to protect herself against ”light.” I don’t know what the sun’s problem is, but if it knows what’s good for it, it had better stop trying to burn Oprah.

3. The TangOrita
Oprah personally created a margarita for summer. She calls it the TangOrita! According to Oprah.com, ”Oprah picked fresh tangerines from the trees that grow outside her Santa Barbara home and squeezed the juice herself.” Do you understand that Oprah picked fruit and squeezed juice to create this drink she named after Herself? Go to Oprah.com, find the recipe, and make a TangOrita toast to Oprah. The summer won’t be the same without her. Farewell, Oprah — and hello, Judge Mathis! (Jimmy Kimmel Live! airs weeknights at 12 a.m. on ABC.)
