My Head. It Has Not Been Reattached.

Well, hello! Here I am. Headless.

Things haven’t really simmered down on the home front nor the Hair Thursday front. I returned Friday from Oklahoma, where Wito was cared for (read: spoiled rotten) while I was prancing around New York with TV makeup on.

I ask of you, television guest or high class hooker?


It’s a tough call, my friends. I’m sure the makeup was spot-on for the cameras, but the six business men who shared an elevator ride with me in my trench coat afterwards probably assumed the latter. You should have seen me walking into my hotel, just waiting for the manager to pull me aside, all Pretty Woman-style. (Excuse me, madam. Where do YOU think you’re going?)

Although, I’m happy to say I would have kept those false lashes on for the rest of my life if I had the chance. (Dear unbelievably awesome hair and makeup team, any chance I could get you to move to California? I make really good margaritas! Love, Whoorl.) As for the television appearance, I will let you know as soon as I get an air date so we can all laugh together at my rambling in front of a live studio audience.


Speaking of the television show, did I mention that the week before my trip to New York, field producers were sent to my house to film an at-home interview, as well as some additional footage of my day-to-day activities? One of those day-to-day activities was me bloggity blogging on my computer, and only in the middle of filming my hands typity-typing did I realize that my nails were possibly atrocious.

Guitar lessons + nails = Not Pretty. ZOMFG.

My living room was completely inundated with bright lights, microphones, people, cords, did I mention people? Yes, people staring at me while I talked about lord knows what. It was truly an surreal experience.

Fast forward to the present. Wito has had a fever of 102-103.5 for the past 36 hours. He’s a sick little dude, and I am taking him to the pediatrician in a couple of hours. My house is in its normal post-weekend state (DEMOLISHED) and guess who’s coming over in 5 hours?


It’s clearly a slow news week. Let’s recap – messy house, sick baby and Oh, OH! Nothing to wear. Send help.

(At least my nails are manicured this time around. Positive thinking RULES.)

    Whoorl—tell us about the lipstick/gloss/liner you are working in this recent pic of you and friend!! It looks lovely.

    I don’t know! I should have asked, but I was too nervous to form an intelligent question.

    Crizazy!!!! And congrats! Can we all say AWESOME?!

    I hear you on the TV makeup front. I used to feel like that after filming…you want to tell every one, “its ok, I’m an actress (or Whoorl!), not a ho…promise.” But it is fun having people primp you up like that.

    Hope the little guy feels better and yay yay for you, Ms. Whoorl!

    Why does my face look about 8 times bigger than yours in this photo? I never knew I had a giant face. But evidently I do. However, I totally agree… fake eyelashes RULE!

    Can’t wait to hear about Nightline! And I hope Wito feels better soon. Poor little guy – it’s the worst when they have a fever like that.

    I still can’t get over the whole “Nightline” thing. But, you know, hair is Very Important.

    Even more important than Thyroids.

    Hope Wito gets well soon, doesn’t he know his mommy’s famous?

    You look loverly.

    Hope Wito feels better soon. Lily just had a viral thing and her doc said spring is when stuff like this goes around. It wasn’t Roseola, which was the prevailing diagnosis, so hopefully Wito is almost out of the woods and feeling better soon.

    You don’t look hooker-ish! Now you’re making me contemplate the amount of makeup I wear on a daily basis . . .

  • Karma

    You look beautiful! Any idea what that lipstick is that they put on you?

    I hope the little man is all better soon.

    Hi Dear!
    I was in the audience of your mystery TV show … I won’t reveal what it was so you can do the honors yourself. But I’d love to know the airdate too because I was right behind Rebecca.
    I thought you did great!!! (And I saw it personally!)
