Hair Today...

Yay, Ann Curry finally cut her hair.

I have to admit that I go back and forth with liking and seriously disliking Ann Curry. Have you ever seen her in an interview with someone famous? someone unfamous? Yikes! She's just not good at the whole interview thing. I mean, I wouldn't want to be interviewed by Katie Couric, either, but she doesn't spaz out on her interviewee like Ann does. Poppy Cedes has several posts dedicated to her total dislike of Ann Curry.

Today, I'm seriously liking Ann Curry. The Today Show did a whole special on Locks of Love, the organization that helps create prosthetic hair pieces for children who have lost their hair through chemo, alopecia, or other "medical hair loss." And the reason Ann's hair has been all long lately is that she and her daughter (and three of her daughter's friends) have been growing their hair for Locks of Love. I learned this fact a couple of months ago, and I must concede that it has made me a little more accepting of Ann. Plus the fact that NBC made her stay back at home while all the cool kids got to go the Olympics. Maybe it was a good choice for US, but it must have sucked for Ann.

Anyway, not only did Ann get her hair cut this morning on national television, but the show did sections on people in the square, a whole town (Durham, NC), and an entire school who had the same idea. One woman in the square had gone 42 years without ever cutting her hair. She had a serious mullet. Poofy mushroom mullet. And she cut it. They gave her a new style, and she looks like a new woman. Even a 7-yr old boy joined in... and it was his choice. (and how cute is HE?!?)

So, Ann Curry, I applaud you. You do seem like a truly nice woman, although a bit cheesy at times. I think it's a cool thing that you've done. And I really like your hair shorter.

Can't say I've formed an opinion about her since I never watch the show, but very cool to donate her hair like that!

42yrs! She must have been stepping on it!

nikki: it was cool. She got a little misty when she was talking to some of the kids who have benefitted from donated hair.

MPB: It was down to her ankles. Katie even asked her how she goes to the bathroom... if got in the way or anything. Ewww!

Oh, I like Ann! Now I like her even more. Better than that Princess Perky Nose, Katie. In Australia, my brother and I would stay up late sometimes to see The Today Show (was usually on about 2am) and just fall about laughing at Katie. Ok, maybe she's not far too sweet--maybe we're far too cynical :-)

Should I even know who ann curry is? Is she more of an american personality?

don't call me MA'AM said...

Gabrielle: I'm not sure what it is about Katie. Sometimes, she seems like just the most sacchariney-sweetey thing, but then she turns into a barracuda in some interviews. Yikes!

ludi: She usually does the news section of NBC's Today Show. Definitely an American personality, yes. :-)

Oh thank God I didn't watch that. I do not want to like Ann Curry!

don't call me MA'AM said...

leanjoe: that's so funny! There are certain people whom I dislike immensely, but then have to give them credit for something cool they did. That really pains me!
