Well, then, look here
Back in November I emailed Whoorl a picture of myself because:
a) I had not had a haircut in 7-ish months.
b) Jobless, new in town, bored (in other words, on the internet ALL THE TIME).
c) Have had a 95% failure rate with bangs in the past.
d) Poor and could not afford to have a messed-up haircut redone.
Anyway, I emailed Sarah at Whoorl after following her blog for a few weeks and witnessing a few inspiring hair makeovers (I found Whoorl through Emily's not that you asked… which is my favorite "random person on the internet" blog, by the way. I have no idea how I stumbled across her, but I'm glad I did!). And then much to my surprise, many many months later, she featured me! And people said I had nice hair! It was all very lovely for my then 5-months-pregnant-feeling-chubby self esteem.
I know, I know, GET TO THE POINT! A blog pal, K, was kind enough to inform me this last week that the photograph I orginally sent Whoorl had been "flashed" on a Nightline segment that recently featured Whoorl's Hair Thursday posts (Sarah is now officially a Famous Person). Here's the picture:
Originally my thoughts were:
a) It's probably not really me.
b) If it is really me, K must have super crazy intensely good vision because I'm probably on there for a nanosecond.
c) Ohmygosh is this ODD?
Then I watched the clip. The segment is basically all about how Americans are narcissistic and self-absorbed and post all kinds of personal random stuff on the internet because all they do is think about themselves and how they look and then … THERE I AM.
At least I got on television.
