Ann Curry is Making My Brain Bleed...

Gah. I don't mean to be a stranger. Really, I don't. It's just that there's so much to do, I'm so very tired still (c'mon... it's been a month now. I want to feel NORMAL again!!!), and blogging is moseying its way down the list of priorities right now. Gah.

Here's something I had to get off my chest, though.

Please, for the love of Bob, NBC, PLEASE stop letting Ann Curry do interviews. PLEASE!

As a person, I think Ann Curry might be kind of a nice woman. In fact, she might be fun to hang out with, shoot the breeze, go shopping... you know. She seems like a very pleasant person with a decent sense of humor. A nice girlfriend-type. She also seems like a great, caring mom... I love to listen to her talk about her daughter.

As a journalist, she's fabulous reading the news. She also does great "special assignments" when she heads over to places such as Kazakhstan, Nepal, Iran*.... very interesting with the serious news. What I'm trying to say is she's a very intelligent woman with a lot of strengths.

HOWEVER...

... as a "fluff" journalist, interviewing celebrities and whatnot, she is truly painful to watch. Did anyone see her interview with the Hoff? Yes, we know all about the Hoff's little problem, but let him promote his show (it's not really his show, but let's run with it). Okay? Or how about the one with cute little Bindi Irwin and her mom, Terri? I seriously had to change channels during that one... I was that uncomfortable! I'm not even going to talk about the Brangelina interview. Yikes.

Ann, please just stop. I know you don't mean to offend your guests, but you do. You interrupt awkwardly, you say things you shouldn't, you react even more awkwardly... I find myself actually holding my breath listening to one of your interviews!!

Please just stop. Please. You're such a nice, pretty lady. You have gorgeous hair. And I'm sure you have a fabulous brain! I don't want you to leave altogether... just no more interviews, m'kay????

Thanks for listening.



*Okay, so maybe she didn't have special assignments in those places per se, but she is really good at those wherever they may be.

Glad to see you back, even if for a short visit! Hope you're feeling better, despite the fatigue...

Yes, welcome back!

All morning television is bad. I avoid it at all costs.

Oz is an Ann Curry free zone. Certainly no Ann Curry's here, no sir.

We do however have boomerangs. Plenty of boomerangs.

Yes, as wire says, oz is an ann curry free zone. Unfortunately we have 'mel and kochy', gah listening/watching kochy is like being skull f****d.

I saw only a snippet of the Hoff interview, and that was enough. Painful!

Hope your body is back to normal soon!

Welcome back.

I don't watch tv past 6:15am, so I haven't watched Ann's interviews lately. But she is pretty. I am also a fan of her shiny hair.

Hi. I hope things calm down for you soon. There's nothing worse than being tired all of the time.

I had to look Ann Curry up to see who she was. Sorry.

I'm glad to know that I'm not alone in being fascinated by Ms. Curry's magnificent head of hair. I'm buying whatever product she's using.

But as a newswoman, well - I really respect what she's done with her hair.

I have no idea who ann curry is sorry! Sorry I haven't been around for a while, I have a new job and not much time for blgos these days! But I miss you! Catch ya round!

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

stinkypaw: thanks! hope all is going well with your move!

-r-: I'm kind of addicted to morning tv... when I'm getting ready for work in the morning, I have to listen to it. It's an obsession. Stupid and idiotic, but an obession. ;-)

wire: yay for boomerangs! I love boomerangs!

anon: I wonder if I can find webcast of mel and kotchy... sounds interesting! (are you simply "anon," or did you just forget to sign in?)

lizgwiz: painful it was! My jaw dropped when she shook his hand and told him to get some help! AHAHAHAHAHA!!

sparkling: I KNOW! It's so shiny and bouncy. Maybe that's her "balance" in life.... awful interviewing style but fabulous hair. I think I'd take that lot!

goldennib: thanks... now if I could just stop yawning all the time. :-)

alyssa: yes, her hair is the best part of her interviews, I must say.

ludi: no apologies necessary. You're better off actually! Hope all is well with the new job!

You're right, she's a HORRIBLE interviewer.
