Nightline Segment

Before you watch the video, I must tell you that the horribly-named Swim Sweater is quite a hit with Wito. In fact, he refuses to take it off. Ever.

Out by the pool? Swim Sweater. Eating lunch? Swim Sweater. Playing with a puzzle in the living room? Swim Sweater. It’s almost as if the fabric-covered tube acts as a nice, comfortable armrest. And really, who wouldn’t want an armrest 24/7? It’s genius, I tell you! Visually hideous, yet genius.

We’re heading to dinner with high hopes of removing it before actually entering the public eatery. Wish us luck.

    You looked just beautiful in that segment! Nice work.

    And Jeremy’s hair WAS totally constipated. Dude looked way cuter after that stylist de-newsgeeked it.

    Really fun segment, Whoorl! Great job…you’re a natural! And damn your hair looked glossy on camera….

    Aw! I feel strangely proud. I’ve been reading your site from the very early days and now look at you!

    Way to go! You are a tv natural.

    Oof, that anchor’s hair is worse than mine. And the stylist’s butchery of the English language made me cringe. Everything else, though, was perfectly entertaining–and you were lovely.

    Way to go!

    I think my hair might have diarrhea…

    I was too lazy to click on the link for the Swim Sweater yesterday.

    Now I think I should stop at Toys R Us on my way home tomorrow and buy Emily one. She and Wito could be matchy-poo.

    I already talked to you yesterday about how excited I am for you, but want to state it for public record.


    So very, very excited for you!

    Constipated Hair. That’s so awesome (not the having it, just the phrase).

    Yay for you and your genius!

    That segment is awesome!
    We had the same Swim Sweater situation with a bike helmet. I figured at least he was safe, you know if the building collapsed or whatever. Now Wito is prepared for flash floods.

    You were fantastic! Congratulations.

    And yay, I totally saw my picture when you scrolled on the Flickr page! I’m famous!

    So SO lovely! You looked totally calm, cool, collected and well coifed. I would have been a blathering idiot. Also? I was thinking of submitting myself, but dang! 150 people already waiting? Too crazy. Congrats, girlie.

    Hi Whoorl – I watched your segment again tonight (was telling my mom about your site, Hair Thursday, and how she would get a kick out of reading your blog), and I’m just like, she is cool…just too cool on so many levels! You’re a natural! About Wito and the swim sweater…isn’t that funny how kids get attached to things? Did you have any luck getting it off of him before dinner? Have a great weekend – I hear Palm Springs is gorgeous!

    Wow, you did the best interview I’ve ever seen of any blogger on TV. You looked so natural and like you were really relaxed and enjoying yourself.

    I watch Jeremy often on the extremely late insomniac ABC news and that stylist was right, his hair IS constipated. He’s cute but kinda a jerk.

    You looked amazing, as always. Great job. Whoever was able to capture the video and post it for you must be a real genius. And handsome, too. But, that’s just a guess, of course.

    And while I agree that Jeremy’s hair may be truly constipated, I find Cynthia’s voice and speech pattern really disturbing. Seriously, what language is she speaking in the intro?
